Yeah im away at work atm but as soon as I get home ill do some high res scans of it. I do intent to transfer it to CGC. I don't mind if it comes back as a green label. Hopefully the grade stays up there ;), I actually intend on trying to get the signatures resigned over by the artists so they can be verified. As for the grade I did some research and found this......

Found it very helpful. ;)

 

Interesting thread with plenty of butthurt. Thanks for posting.

 

Yeah I've had books repeatedly downgrade sometimes significantly from PGX to CGC. As such I will never buy one again. The chances of a "10" book in a PGX slab turning into a CGC "10" are zero. I normally don't like to speak in absolutes. This is one time though I feel it's appropriate.

 

I would be interested to see the results of having a creator re-trace a signature in front of CGC to go for a yellow label though.

 

Of course the third option is just leaving at is. Or cracking it and sticking it in a mylar if PGX labels turn your stomach. :sick:

Not sticking up for PGX here but ... wow

 

Such a fanboy!

 

CGC's 10's are mythical creatures, only showing up once every hailey comet cycle. Resubbing a CGC 10, without CGC knowing about it and getting another CGC 10 has a zero chance as well. If you really think CGC can tell apart 9.8's -10's each time they grade them, I don't even know what to say.

 

Ive seen CGC books cracked and resubbed with NOTHING done to them and the grade jumping 2-3 full points, check the forums if you don't believe me.

 

CGC's grading is flawed as well, just listen to the boards, people talking about the " soft 9.8 years " . Get over it. Yes CGC is better. Stop making them out to be gods.

 

Seriously dude. Wtf was the point of all that? (shrug)

What was the point of what you said?

 

Don't ask silly questions.

 

Bash PGX all you want, they deserve It for many, many reasons, sadly, grading has always been the least of their problems. Resto check and detection of manipulation like married pages , hair in their slabs, and many questionable dealings with " inside" people have been their problem.

 

NEITHER company has ever been consistent when grading the same books more than once, while not knowing about it. Its all over the place for both.

 

The point you ask about? CGC cant even tell their own 10's from 9.9's or 9.8's most of the time. Your delusional if you think they can. To trash PGX because their 10.0 wont come back a CGC 10.0 is illogical, because CGC's 10.0 wont come back a CGC 10.0 a second time either.

 

Sorry to hear about your downgrades from PGX to CGC, if you dig around on the forums, you will find posts of PGX books being subbed to CGC and getting upgrades that will make you laugh.

Sorry guys I didn't mean for the forum too get so off topic. So yeah has anyone else had there book signed by the colorist Christina? She has signed my prints but it would be a nice touch to the book I think.

 

 

Agreed... That would be cool...

The seller wised up...

Only if I had a chunk of change in my pocket when I saw it...

Honestly Siege 3 Lost its appeal to me... I think Wolvie 1 Campbell variant is a far superior book...

 

I agree. The siege 3 never really has floated my boat either. Always seemed corny to me and like a cover that could easily look "dated" in a short period of time, if it doesn't already. Plus I don't care much for the "cartoony" art work. Much prefer the near photo-realistic art work on the wolverine 1, the back story that can be gleaned in my imagination as to how wolverine ended up in deadpool's costume and the look on his face is classic. It really is some of JSC's best work and he does not draw wolverine that often.

 

As for the listing, I emailed the seller and asked him what kind of crack he was smoking and suggested he take a look at recent sales on ebay and/or GPA.

 

Five minutes later he ended the listing and messaged me back with a heartfelt thanks for the heads up. He said he had gotten multiple offers with in mere minutes of listing it. Big surprise there. lol

I contacted the seller as well. He mentioned he was willing to split up the set and wanted $1500 for the Wolverine 1. He must be so relieved no one bought it before closing the listing. It will be interesting to see if it sells at the new price.
