I think we had a thread about this guy a while back. I liked the article, but wish Chris Nerat had been tougher on him.

I also suspect Towle isn't alone in his actions, but is taking a calculated gamble that the new business he gets from this publicity will outweigh the criticism he may take.

Well, he said he's worked on 15,000-18,000 cards.

Does anyone doubt that virtually all of them now reside in holders?

i have actually dealt with him before. Very honest and very straight forward. Kinda goes back to my orignial theory that grading companies are pretty much useless and should be done away with unless authenticating a card. How many times have you heard a story about a card being one grade, sent back and getting another one.

Nice article. I know I'm in the minority (at least with the N54 group), but
I don't care if any of the cards I purchased had ink, stains, etc. removed.

I would care about any other type of altering (trimming, removing creases, adding color, etc.)

yes me and the other 15,000 cards that apparently were trusted in his hands were trusted by dick towle. As for integrity my 100% feedback speaks for itself and as for you, this site is for hobbyiest not for negativity. thanks for the kind thoughts

how long it is before he figures out that he needs to charge more per card based on the value of the card. You know, insurance being what it is and all.
