Well Joe never cared about centering, and may not have been the best at spotting altered cards, but to the best of my knowledge he wasn't knowingly slabbing bad stuff or overgrading.

This sounds like there should be more to this post. Did you have a bad experience, or know folks that did, with ISA? Not saying you're wrong, but this is a pretty all or nothing statement about them.

Very early GAI was good. No question. I don't know how it went so far south, although I have a guess.

I have successfully cracked an ISA 6 Bird Magic RC to a PSA 7.

It was my only experience with ISA so far.

Looks like they have sold the company.

Still using ISA Flips - I have been to their original site in the past as Probstein seems to end up with a fair share of their slabs.

Is PRO still in the business? Their cards still occasionally seem to pop up.

I don't think any of the old fly-by-night companies are left. I guess it depends on how you feel about KSA in Canada.

Anyone else see the laughable "Treasure Detectives" on MSNBC where they investigate a Wagner. The only company the guy would use for authentication was ACA. Supposedly because they're the only ones who would let him stay with the card during the grading process. The guy from ACA actually had the balls to appear on the show too!

It's so obviously a fake the participants in the show have to really stretch to create any suspense.
