While CGC books consistently sell for more money than CBCS and PGX books, my frustration level with CGC is at an all-time high. I have had close to 10 slabs which were either damaged during encapsulation, had the wrong labels or damaged during shipping.
Positives and Negatives
CGC - highest selling price, reasonable turnaround time, good cases.
Negatives- Inconsistent grading and damage during encapsulation, higher price.
CBCS - toughest grader, verify signatures, cheaper than cgc.
Negatives, long turnaround times, flimsy cases, lower selling price.
PGX - lowest price, fastest turnaround.
Negative, bad reputation of over grading books.
I have used PGX once for pressing and grading and all books came back PGX 9.8 and super fast turnaround times. Great service.
