I am advocating for a new 9.7 grade to the comic book grading industry and her is why. Too many times I have examined my books and said this is a strong 9.6 but maybe on a good day I can squeak out a 9.8 from a grader at CGC (or maybe vice versa, I know a book is 9.8 but what if that grader is having a bad day and gives me a 9.6). I then look up the book on ebay in the "sold" category and notice that a 9.8 sold for say $400 and a 9.6 sold for $125. So now my profit margin is effected big time by this process. But if we had a 9.7 grade maybe the book is worth $275. It cannot be that the industry does not like odd numbers as they have a 9.9 (which who knows what that means or how they get to that grade, I myself have only gotten one 9.9 in all these years). I am not in favor of a 9.5, 9.3 etc in that it does not effect the value/price of the book as much as a 9.7 grade would. So join with me in telling the industry to incorporate the new 9.7 grade. Look forward to reading the replies!!

 It makes sense.

I propose we add .1 increments to every grade.

9.81
9.82
9.83
9.84
9.85, etc. you get the idea. We need more granularity and people need to know the difference between and 9.8 and and 9.82

Also, let's take take CGC grading to 11 because 10 simply isn't good enough. This post approved by Nigel Tufnel

Using the dewey decimal system is all well and good, but is there a way to get CGC to properly grade and encapsulate comics like they used to?  Asking for a friend. :shy:

:eyeroll: The CGC boards is no place for sane and reasonable suggestions. P'shaw, I say. P'shaw!
