Look on the bright side of the 1 year turnaround. You can send modern cards in and they come back vintage.

Yes, this. They could have made a pop-up or something on the website that stated their current situation and warned about delays and that no confirmation email would be sent out, etc. I've basically had to figure this out on my own.

i remember the episode of The Office when Michael started his own paper company. as it continued to lose money, an analyst told him that the quicker he sold more paper, the sooner he would be out of business. the prices he was charging for his product couldn’t support his business. i know PSA and SGC recently have increased prices, but I wonder if the grading companies have reached a point they never envisioned: their product is TOO much in demand, and they can’t keep up if they stay within the operating budgets they’ve set up.

I'm copying and pasting this just to help give everyone an appreciation of how hilarious a statement this is.

Peter, would you say that SGC is a close second, especially after their debacle at the National?

Peter, I am referring to SGC's debacle with regard to on-site grading at the National. It will be interesting to see if SGC can successfully accomplish all of the various changes it is currently making to its processes.

I am not really aware of what happened at the National.
