Bill posted this over in the RS AFA section but I don't think it will reach a deserving audience there Wink

That was pretty funny and oh so true.

To support Bill I just bought a print version of the first page as I thought it would be fun to have for the collection. Smile

Wow am I the crotchety old man here?

I know it's tongue in cheek but I didn't find it funny at all. I mean I really didn't . I abhore the pratice of U grading but sorry, not amused in the least.

Must admit the first time I read it I thought the chopping the collector up was a bit much lol but second read it was pretty funny Very Happy

It takes a bit of a jab at both sides in my eyes - the overly passionate collector so outraged he's ready to explode and the oblivious U grade collector giving nonchalant responses speaking down to the regular guy, and what's more - they are going at it in cartoon form- it's the next best thing to a real life RS U grade debate - cartoons YAY! ! LOL

Creative comic art from Bill Cable! :clap: It certainly has some dark humor in it, who knows that the ignorant U grade collector is going to be hit bloody with his item.

Everyone, this is an alternate ending IF the U grade collector was really cut up and neatly packed into all his clear acrylic action figure display cases. This scene is from Amicus' 1973 Vault of Horror :

just watch the first 1 minute, and you can what could have happened to him! :noooooo:

It made me chuckle.... seriuosly though perhaps someone should email this dude the cartoon. I really hope the U95 doesn't spark a new interest from uneducated & new to the hobby collectors:

I fucking spewing that UKG are also doing this U-grading service.

I was considering using the UKG for a few things not so much grading but custom cases but after seeing them jump the U Grade band wagon i wont be giving them any of my money. Its a shame they had a chance to set themselves apart from the AFA and position UKG as a company that puts preservation first unfortunately they decide not to. Personally i think they will look back at this choice as a missed ship as they U Grade prices are plummeting all the time its pretty clear that when you crunch the numbers the U Grade fad is reaching its death throws.

Lets be fair as well UKG pretty much mark up 1 scale higher than AFA in most cases its always been a general rule that an AFA 80 = UKG 85, AFA 85 = UKG 90 etc. So a UKG U95 is an AFA U90 at the most.

What i have noticed recently is a lot of UKG Graded items dont fetch close to the types of premiums that AFA Graded items do.

UKG gradings have always seemed to have less importance to collectors, as demonstrated by the lower premiums. I think they have missed the chance (in the long term) to give themselves more sway with collectors by deciding to opt in to the U grade farce.
