Default SO SGC just tripled its prices?

Email and Facebook post from $25 per card to $75 per card... Is it time for federal price gouging inquiry?

Default Sadly doesn't seem to be a joke!

Unless the SGC website is in on it! Glad I at least got off 1 submission yesterday. This is getting ridiculous!

I have never had any problem with the price increases....

one month ago SGC made a grand announcement on their website via a letter making apologies and explaining how they invested in the business, and fixed x, y, z, and this is why they are different. the headline was "starting at $25".
now a month later its magically $75??? what a con. what appeared to be a well-thought out, organized business model, now looks deceptive.

Sorry SGC, you lost one of your greatest supporters.

This is smart instead of suspending jack up the prices 3 fold, keep things moving. They don't want all the junk modern economy PSA Bulk Hold Overs coming their way.

Raising Prices Slightly Like PSA and SGC Did last month didn't slow anything, people didn't get it. Now They Will.

This is a nice way of telling people please stop sending us junk modern.

Default Snatching defeat from the arms of victory!!

Borrowed from Ryan (thanks Ryan - imitation is flattery) from a different thread.

I guess they don't understand that their cards sell for less than comparably graded PSA cards and their lower grading price was an equalizer. $25 difference isn't going to cut it on cards under $500. Really too bad.

I think they’re trying to prevent all of the 2021 Topps commons submissions. It seems like the industry TPGs are trying to cool the market. It’s an interesting phenomena to see major players actively working to slow their growth.

I do wonder if I called and said I have 100+ prewar cards to sub if they’d swing me a deal. I miss those $8-10 fees. Lol.

Their statement notes that the increase is temporary and is in response to their competitor’s move.
