Default Hmmm... Sticker on my SGC submission

Just got my submission back from SGC, and this 'static sticker' was on the top of the stack. Not quite sure how I feel about this.

I've had that too, along with Heritage auctions. It seems the more "valuable/desirable" cards get the Heritage, whereas the others get Probstein. I mean it shouldn't really affect you, Probstein pays to have SGC do that, and if it bothers you, peel it off and throw it away. Sorry if this sounds harsh, but it's a little advertising sticker that doesn't affect the card...

I'd rather have a coupon for a Giant Chocolate Fudge ice cream bar.

Apparently, Anthem Blue Cross of California seems to think that ice cream coupons are a great way to help their subscribers stay healthy.

As it relates to the static sticker, if you get something from one company, it invariably will have a tie in to some other company. At least SGC is keeping it within the realm of reality.

Sheesh! Sorry to vent in your thread, but it just reminded me of today's article.

Actually, I had that little 'sticker' leave a weird residue behind on a card that was impossible to remove. Interesting thread about it across the street.

I know it's a marketing technique/revenue stream and ultimately benefits both companies... There's always been inserts, but I paused when there was something stuck to my slab.

It seems like them should just insert a index card with the companies information similar to how Sterling did with your package.I would just rip that sticker off and trash it,a card might not be immediately discarded.I guess the sticker is more cost effective.

I had a Memory Lane sticker on a new PSA holder.

It's only cool if it's a static cling (which leaves no residue)...anything sticky...obviously not cool....
