Is there anything more annoying than...

Seeing a MOC you have been after for ages turn up on eBay, only it's not a MOC, it's a pristine sliced cardback because the seller has U-graded it. I would have paid £150 for that MOC, but they've opened it to put a £15 loose figure in an acrylic case. And I bet it didn't sell for anywhere near £150 unless it got a 90 grade.

My answer is ... no!
Douchebags like this one should put in an acrylic cases for themselves.

I have never been a fan of grading and I never will be.

As a Pro Grading collector I have never really understood the Loose U Grading thing as just because the figure is sealed does not mean it will get a high grade so I presume these people just want the U on the grade sticker. Does Loose U Grading still happen as I believe UKG & AFA have stopped doing it but I am not sure about CAS?
