An opening calling them incompetent might :-)[/quote]

yes, that is in fact what I meant.
(is there a better explanation why after 30 yrs collecting I only have 20 posts on this board?)--for the record, I didn't use the word "incompetent" exactly, but merely pointed out a logical inaccuracy. So yes, they will kick someone off rather than admit being wrong.

I got kicked off for one slightly rude remark after hundreds of useful posts. I didn't want the big "BANNED USER" icon on my name on their site, so I asked their webmaster to remove all my posts there instead, and they complied. I'm surprised more of their banned users (which seems to be growing daily) don't do the same.

The losses over there have resulted in a much better board on post war here in the time I have been here ( 2009), with increased activity of folks like yourself John

And given CU booted Bob Lemke, albeit briefly, for just posting one of his Flags of The World card creations, it does reinforce your point that it does not matter much what you have contributed in the past.

they refused for 10 years then suddenly ok we'll grade em
and yet they put in the registry a mantle who am i scratched off and listed it as the uncoated variety...took me forever to prove to them card doesnt exist
and finally they removed
1952-55 red man...2 reverses...both listed in bible refuse to acknowledge
1954 journal american 2 obverses also described in bible refuse to acknowledge
1964 meadowgold blue and green...actually told me to hard to tell the difference REally? but they can tell the difference between a 9 and a 10 from 2017?
and now the punchouts 1967...10 years of fighting to list the different lineups...finally they do...now years later they remove them with the explanation theyll no longer grade WTF
PSA customer service ..non existant....if you need an expert in your postwar research dept Im available....I can work from home

Larry:

Add the two different 1955 Exhibit Postcard backs to your list. One with a plain line down the middle on the reverse one with the words A MUTOSCOPE CARD.

This info is listed in the Standard Catalog, but PSA will not mark the flip or list both variations for Registry sets for some reason!!

SGC did list their first one for me noting it is a Mutoscope back.

I had the same issue with my Mays 1955 Post Card Back. I submitted both variations and they wouldn't recognize them. I even included the page from the Standard Catalog with the submission. No dice.

Also, we can add the Dayton Daily News. They won't distinguish between the 1970 and 1971 issues.

Brian:

Did PSA decline to grade your two Mays Exhibit PC backs or just graded them both, but would not note the differences?

Not many of their decisions on these make sense. Remember, they still don't label the various tobacco brands of T205s. And that is a hugely popular set with large multiples for the rare backs.

O/T but I thought you might find this interesting:



On the left is a Mays proof I have. It is a "Printed in USA" version. The one on the right is for size comparison.

Based on my experience, PSA simply doesn't have enough folks devoted to customer service, let alone enough knowledgeable folks. It took them over a month to respond to an email I sent them about a mislabeled 1960 Armour coin. I deal with a lot of different businesses, professionally and personally, and cannot think of another business in ANY field that takes anywhere near that long to respond. Simply substandard.

Once they did respond, they offered to fix the mislabeled 1960 Armour "Milwaukee Braves" Aaron (labeled as the "Braves" variation) for me for free. This included free shipping to them and free return shipping. They did this even though it wasn't part of a grading order that I submitted; I bought it that way on eBay. GREAT response after TERRIBLE response time = insufficient manpower.
