Thoughts from other dealers or professionals on PGX v. CGC?
I have been collecting comics for over 30 years since my youth, and what a pleasure it has been. However, after looking through boxes and boxes of comics I have amassed over the years I have begun to contemplate selling them or at least investing in their proper archiving for future investment purposes.
I have read both services website's and believe them to be rather similar with the exceptions noted in the blog author's post above. My question is what is the opinion of those who buy and sell comics for a living? Is PGX likely to stick around, is the product from an archival perspective as good as or better than CGC and is it easier, the same or more difficult to sell PGX comics versus CGC graded comics.
Finally, in keeping with the main post, is it just me or is there a premium value or additional ease in turn over time to selling third party graded comics?
PS, I often feel now that because comics have significant cash value that I am hesitant to actually read any comics purchased for fear of damaging them and lessening their value.
