I've cast my vote, but I think the only way AFA will stop this practice is if people boycote sending loose & carded items to them for grading (we now have two alternative grading companies) as a notable loss of income is more likely to make them stand up & take notice. Unfortunately, too many people get items graded in order to charge more money for them on the secondary market and this is more likely to take priority over ethics. Despite their well documented errors, a lot of people still appear to value AFA grades above any other company.

You're not wrong Steve. AFA only care about money and not the hobby. But I guess it's a small step in the right direction.
