it seem cgc is more trusted than pgx on grading.. does anyone know why??

When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.”

People trust CGC more the PGX because CGC was the first comic grading company and they had a large following of collectors who knew the CGC founders. CGC also had the Wizard Magazine account and did a lot of promotions through them and with them. PGX is also not as visible at cons as CGC.

PGX has since become synonyms with great product, value and customer service. I have used both but lean towards PGX. I have heard people say they send newer books to PGX and older more valuable books to CGC. I have also heard people say that PGX grades harder and have the superior holder.

Lets not forget that there was a 3rd grading company out of Texas called ACE Grading but they tanked early on while the other 2 continued on strong. PGX is committed to being a great company. Talk to the folks at PGX you will get that since from all of them.

Now its down to choice. Both have graded major KEY books and both have a major following. What do you want?

I own only two slabbed books both are CGC, and after reading the info in the link above i don't know if i will be trying out any pgx's.

I was going to at one point but just decided on the cgc's instead (to be honest it was an aesthetic choice i liked the design of the label on cgc better and liked the way the grade stands out)

DO YOU have a comic I need for my collection? Check the want list forum!

I think it's very interesting that the only post in this thread that praises PGX came from a poster who visited the site one time and posted once.

"You're the one that got out the damn saran-wrap and the rubber cement and the... duct-taping their hands to the table? You told me that was COOL!"

"Punching apes in the face since 2011"
