<< Brian Price is going to lose it if he knows you don't refer to him as DOCTOR Brian Price. >>



70% of the folks I work with are PhDs. I'm not (I have a MS). We all refer to each other by first names. I still haven't met anyone that demands to be called "Doctor" when talking in an interpersonal setting.

BTW... when speaking with Brian Price, I've referred to him as Brian. No issues to report.

I could be wrong but I would think one of his employees is tasked with reading the forum and
relaying to him any topic he has advised they relay his way.

Another reason some would have a large percentage of Gem Mint grades is that when you submit in such large numbers and spend that amount of money you really know what you are doing or you hire someone who does.

No doubt and I have a prety good idea who it is.

Doubt Joe Orlando is up at midnight reading the boards

The clowns blog is called "According to Dr. Price". He promotes it as much as his fake jersey ridden product.

Just going off of my first-hand experience... and ITG is up front with what their jersey are or aren't. They, by far, have the best customer service around. I can understand if you don't like jerseys, but they put out a ton of sets with obscure players. They actually ask the collectors for ideas on what products to put together. Barely any redemptions (if any at all) IN their products. Weird concepts, eh? Save the hate for Upper Deck and Topps.

Why is this thread being derailed with this nonsense?

beckett offered me the same deal that joe is talking about with psa. for 500 or more cards it $9 to encapsulate and $2 not to. for orders under 500, it was $11 to encapsulate and $2 not to. i would assume that psa is somewhere in that neighborhood, maybe a little cheaper for someone like 4sc.

Start a new thread and bring the proof... otherwise you're as good as the reason this thread was started.

<< So, once again, for those of you who want to post nonsense on our message boards, you will be removed immediately. If something comes up in the future and a person has a question about anything at PSA, I donít think it is unreasonable to ask that you contact us so we can simply answer the question. >>

Joe, who exactly do members here contact if they have a question about something? I guess the obvious answer is call Newport Beach, but what about lesser stuff? My point is this: why do we not have a clearly defined moderating team here? I have been a member of probably close to two dozen various message boards over the years; at least half of those have been hobby related. Every message board has had a well-known, interactive, hands-on moderation team. Here at CU, the overwhelming majority of us haven't the foggiest idea who to contact if we have a question, or a complaint, or whatever. The last two empoyees who started threads here were JackieC on October 2, and LauraR on October 24. Guess what? Neither one of them have their PMs turned on - nice. I even started a thread once that very politely asked for the moderators to be identified. What happened? The thread was deleted shortly after it started.

BTW, it seems at least one member does know who to contact, as many people who have run afoul of said member have received "stop it or else" emails from an anonymous CU representative. Why does this one member have the ear of someone at CU, and not the rest of us? Why are your employees being so shy?

In the light of this current controversy, deleting threads and banning members (some of whom were asking very legitimate questions) does NOT reflect well on PSA. Joe, IMO you or one of your representatives should have been out in front of this the instant it became known that things were being said here. Instead, the flames of the conspiracy theorists were fed with kerosene.

My $0.02. I hope to still be around after CU reps have read it.

I would certainly agree that when carolj was here, there was certainly more clarity and transparency with regard to corporate presence on the message boards.

I had also started a thread asking for the new message board rules and it was deleted. Im not sure why. People have been banned for seemingly minor infractions and that is when I asked if we could all get some clarity. As another poster here suggested, why are there no forum rules...or should I say "new forum rules" posted? I think its only fair.

I agree with TNP777 that we should all have access to the moderators equally and those moderators should be clearly defined as well. Maybe that transparency (and Im not talking AH's here lol) would make this place an even playground and there are not members with favoritism. (yes, there are!)

And this is what bothers me about the whole "minimum grade" option. Which do you think the grading company would rather have, the $9 or the $2?
