PGX grading and pressing service

Postby rob24019 » Thu Oct 05, 2017 5:16 pm

Has anyone used their pressing service recently, also their grading? What did you think of the results? I'm pretty sure i'm sending them a stack of books, budget wise they make the most sense for me but i'd rather not use them at all if they're going to wreck my books.

I would also like to know. I see as a company they seem to keep pushing forward for the better. Im curious of the work and turn around time of pressing. I may sens them a few books to press and grade soon.

In my experience, and I feel like most will agree, they don't have as much street cred as CGC and CBCS. I've had 9.8's by PGX and CGC of the exact same book at the exact same time and I always get around 20% less for my PGX books. You get what you pay for with the grading services, and that includes the name. On the other hand I've heard they are more stringent of a grading service, so I have bought PGX 9.6 books before and resubmitted them to CGC without a press and gotten a 9.8. That's happened twice.

I've cracked and resubbed a PGX 9.8 and it came back a CGC 9.8. I'm not totally convinced it's the company so much as the submitter actually graded his own book accurately. The reason I say this is that I've gotten other PGX 9.8s that barely looked like 9.4s.

True. I've seen that as well.

I think theirs a lot more parity between grading companies lately. If you buy slabs in person I've found a few occasions where a book seems overgraded or undergraded from all 3 companies. I've heard of a lot of people using CCS for pressing so i know they're service is good but i hear little to nothing about pgxs pressers.

i'm putting together a sub of about 20 books, a mix of moderns and a few older books, and i'll do a set of before and after photos for anyone interested. I'll be submitting all but 1 of them for pressing.
