I contacted CGC yesterday about slabs I had done at WW Philly last week that are showing signs of waviness and a few with very bad newton rings not even a week after being slabbed. I was told they'll reholder them and press the wavy books and ship them back for free. Now I'm not against pressing but my question is are they doing this to all wavy books without disclosure or are they offering it as an option to correct their mistakes? I know a lot of collectors are against pressing especially OO books so I can definitely see this being another huge problem with CGC. Has anyone else been told this? Also since being aware of this thread I made sure to examine every book I had slabbed at WW and NONE showed waviness and they all looked good besides the books with rings so to see that most are already showing wavy signs is pretty disturbing.
Here's a few and I'm 100% certain they were completely flat when I received them and I've been keeping an eye on them and they look worse in hand. I know that some modern books are wavy to begin with. The Edge of Spider-Verse is a perfect example of those types of books but i know it didn't look that bad that last week. These are definitely being effected by the creep.

steveinthecity: Btw, the chard was fine. Very light taste, not bitter at all. Had it mixed with spinach and romaine to use as “greens” for salads.

Stupid Team Up: By-Tor and the Snow Dog is a terrible Rush song. There, I said it.

steveinthecity: They probably have more than one. Did they make any albums after Moving Pictures?

steveinthecity: oh, there was “Roll The Bones”? I honestly cannot recall them right now.

Stupid Team Up: They did make albums after Moving Pictures because that's when I was old enough to go see them. I remember Fastway opened one of the shows.... Kinda weird choice

Stupid Team Up: I saw them on Grace Under Pressure and Power Windows

steveinthecity: All those titles ring a bell, now. I heard “Permanent Waves” album on radio, and then bought my first Rush album, which was actually the 3-disc set “Archives”. I never did see a live show. I only know Fastway from their 1st album.

Stupid Team Up: Pete Way from UFO and Fast Eddie from Motorhead... Did they have more than one album?

Stupid Team Up: The fake crowd noise is the worst... I can barely hear the announcers.

steveinthecity: I’m not getting Tampa Bay, it’s St. Louis vs 49ers. +1 on crowd noise. I forgot there was no crowd at first, then wondering why the announcers are talking so loud.

steveinthecity: Ugghh...forgot. Cardinals are Arizona, not St. Louis.
