Re: effect of CGC/PGX grading on prices?

in reply to fan1275

NM, especially 9.8 CGC could result in a 150 - 200% gain. Anything below VG probably wouldn't affect price, but people would be willing to pay a little more; so all depends on situation and the comic in question. I had done some research and found almost nothing on the PGX grading company. They have a website and you need to submit your books to a P.O. box number. A P.O box number! At least CGC has a physical address. CGC is better known in the collector's society, better with investors, etc. In my opinion, it would be much tougher to make a profit on your PGX graded books. CGC = higher selling price.

What do you mean? A PGX grade wouldn't be the same as a CGC grade (if that's what you was asking).

Which company is it better to go with? Do you live in a cave? This question has already been answered so many times. Either way, you would still need to get it appraised. CGC would most likely get you a higher auction price.

 "What source has rough estimates for Golden Age comics after professional grading?"

 

It's been discussed on the CGC Board many times in the past 11 years.

100% incorrect, completely wrong. GPA has no affiliation with CGC in the manner you speak of. GPA mines data/completed sales of slabbed books and reports them in an objective manner. If they did not, their product would have no value. Plus, it's very easy to verify GPA data against the actual auctions on Ebay, etc.. Where do you get this stuff? Seriously, where?

CPG's values are a joke. TA lot of times they don't use actual data, they use an algorithm to determine prices. They list CGC prices for books that have no slabbed copies in the census, don't exist in the grade stated, and haven't been sold. GPAnalysis would be the best source to determine what percentage over guide a book would sell for slabbed.

Do those percentages include the dealer just adding the grading fees to the price? Any book over $3,000 would cost at least $200 to get slabbed.

Depends on the comic. Something like Action #1 you're talking 6 figures; while a less important title might not even be affected.

effect of CGC/PGX grading on prices?

Generally, what is the range of potential price increases for golden age, silver and modern comics professionally graded?  For example, how much more might a near mint $2500 1948 comic be worth in theory?
