CBCS Turnaround 12/15/2017 Jake_Fleming 81 6 hoursteacha777 (19): My comics from NYCC are in grading hopefully I get them by February. A few Black Panthers I want to put on Ebay when that movie drops. :beer:
CBCS Pressing Jesse_O 453 4 daysSteveRicketts (4990): Those were yours? Just so you know, I earned several gray hairs trying to get them flat. LOL They turned out pretty nicely. I think you'll be pleased. :beer:
CBCS Slab Security SteveRicketts 61 16 daysBigRedOne1944 (1612): I think this just about sums it up.
  CBCS Forum Moderation and Suspension Thread The_Watcher 17 18 daysJesse_O (4000): 12-29-2017 atakmunky7 2 weeks for continuing to openly question the actions of moderation by starting a new thread that was a continuation of a deleted thread. Both of which are suspendable actions
#CBCSBOX SteveRicketts 169 19 daysDEFnub (7): Man that's terrible I'd be pissed. I spoke with someone at cbcs and I'll be getting it back in 3 weeks. Hopefully when it returns I can do a proper unboxing of the book
New Message Board Atmosphere SteveRicketts 57 25 daysLonestar (856): It's sot of like Fight Club. The first rule about locked threads is...don't start a new thread about locked threads.
So....How do you like the forum here.... SteveBorock 405 2 monthsBabaLament (361): Hello all! Is there a problem w/ the forum webpage? I'm trying to upload photos, the yellow "Uploading Photo" icon comes up, and then a whole lot of nothing. I've tried in IE & Chrome. Please let me know if this is a known thing. Thanks!
The CBCS Difference Michael 158 2 monthsbluesix (7): I have to agree that it will take some time for CBCS to grow as a company to the level of CGC. The comic book community on YouTube have done quite a number of comparison videos between CGC, CBCS and PGX. All had good and bad opinions about all three and are based on their own personal experiences with all three companies. I think what it boils down to is personal experience and each experience will be different based on the circumstances going...
  CBCS Signature restrictions for AWs Jesse_O 1 5 monthsJesse_O (4000): This is borrowed from the Official CBCS Signature Programs page on Facebook. While it will be kept up to date as best as possible, everyone is encouraged to visit the page and check the pinned post for updates. Updated 11-07-2017 Official CBCS Signature Programs Facebook page
  CBCS FAQ Jesse_O 1 5 monthsJesse_O (4000): What is "Processing"? On your account dashboard, any invoice that has been received will read "processing" until the order has been shipped. To find out what stage your comics are at, click on the invoice number. There, if your comics read "processing", it means that your comics have not entered the grading phase yet. Once they HAVE entered "grading", you can follow the comics through the different...
A Moment of Clarity Michael 184 10 monthsDarthLego (20485): There may come a point where CBCS needs to make a tough decision and cut losses with this site. If the code is such a mess, starting over from scratch will be faster, easier, cheaper.

Blank covers question donho 14 1 minThorneArt (298): That is pretty great Odins_raven! I love that.
1st appearance ??? Scorpion 17 8 minutesCaptainCanuck (835): @Scorpion First appearance of “Him” and then Adam Warlock is a similar situation. The “Him” character appeared several years before being named Adam Warlock. In this case, the “Him” appearance is more valuable.
For Sale: Attention fans of Donny Cates FletchLives 3 9 minutesFletchLives (1): updated:
Ebay Report comicsforme 56 10 minutesTedsaid (784): I misspoke. I said "A book's worth is partially determined by the current bid." Of course, I meant perceived worth. Which is almost, but not quite, the same thing.
Possible Collection Purchase Dshel61 2 16 minutesCaptainCanuck (835): Looks like there are some nice keys in there.
Cover Contest Week 72 - Upcoming Movies! shrewbeer 25 37 minutesJLS_Comics (3523): OOPS I voted early! I forgot which thread I was in haha
WTB GIANT SIZE XMEN HIGH GRADE KingNampa 19 51 minutesDarkga (2428): YAY! :beer: FYI, that one actually got bumped up to a 0.5 last week, but I did not have the new picture handy. CBCS mistakenly gave it a 0.3 (coverless), but only the front cover was missing. That garners a 0.5 instead so they corrected the label. @ThorneArt As noted above, it's actually a 0.5 now. I see that @KingNampa already posted the average prices. I did not want you to think I ignored your question.
Fantastic Four 48 1st Galactus/Silver Surfer GAC 37 54 minutesconditionfreak (7114): I wouldn't even consider putting my expensive books in an unattended vehicle. They stay with me until I get home. If I stop at a gas station to use the bathroom, they go to the bathroom with me. If I stop for lunch, they go into the restaurant with me. There is no place safer for my items, than in my hands. Could I be robbed? Yes, of course. But doubtful. Could I misplace them? Of course, but again, doubtful. Could a meteor fall from...
THE PARK AVENUE COLLECTION martymann 1065 55 minutesmartymann (10819): Can't show the above promo ad without showing the actual book. OO mm
Stabbity Bunny, HOT comic of the week? jdangerc 24 1 hourkaptainmyke (12190): Open thread to view post.
New Comics Releases Jan 17-Batter Up! thelastbard 4 2 hoursthelastbard (802): @BrianGreensnips I don't typically pay much attention to Antarctic, but that cover... WOW! @drchaos Yeah, the variant is definitely the better cover there for Ice Cream Man... Pretty twisted. I'm hoping rather than "genre-defying", it turns out to be horror, leaning into different genres. That could be what it is anyway.
Ebay question - possible scam? drchaos 13 7 hoursCopperAgeKids (1426): Tell him you want to talk on the phone, if he is serious, he'll send his n FWIW, I highly doubt eBay would do anything at all, besides emailing you with a warning. Kicking sellers off is something eBay only does if buyers complain about fraud etc. They make steady coin off sellers like you, it is antithetical to eBay's way of things to suspend sellers who cough over hundreds of dollars a month in fees. If you are still not sure, call eBay...
Why I left CGC !!! Tony 61 7 hoursGabriel85301 (652): I've got tons of Midtown signed books, all put away. :)
Hand washing QuaBrot 20 11 hoursIronMan (1531): White cotton gloves are I believe the better choice for comic books. But if interested, the nitrile gloves can be purchased from Harbor Freight inexpensively. A box of 100 is about six dollars. I always keep a box of them around for dirty jobs like changing the oil in cars or lawn equipment, cleaning gutters, etc...
New to Your Collection Thread #2 Foghorn_Sam 625 12 hourspoka (3853): In terms of what?
I'm losing interest conditionfreak 73 12 hoursFoghorn_Sam (2350): Nice books 👍🏻 @VillageIdiot speaking of nice books, have you seen this tribute image from the Modern Family TV show? Oh wait, you said nice books!
DKR For Sale or Trade esaravo 4 14 hoursesaravo (7594): Sold; thanks for looking!

Marvel Comics Regains Conan License DavidM 24 14 hoursGAC (475): she takes him, maybe.....he takes her? no way, not in today's post-weinstein world.
2018 Conventions BabaLament 32 15 hoursbige31 (157): @drchaos specifically the Irving convention center.
My Frank Miller RoboCop trilogy is complete! dielinfinite 14 15 hoursKingNampa (4390): I waited all my childhood for Robocop vs Terminator movie. :(
Shipped to the Wrong Person? Thanatos 83 16 hoursGAC (475): I've seen my shipments (not necessarily from CBCS) take really weird routes. maybe that's what's happened?
Captain Marvel, Monica Rambeau BrianGreensnips 12 17 hoursBrianGreensnips (2314): The newstand copy which is really clean cost me $6.probably a 9.6 candidate and the other one for $4. Probably around a 8.5 So for $10. I think it was worth it.
Can I have my own art on a blank comic grade Tony 18 23 hourskaptainmyke (12190): Wow you guys are all very talented! Why can't we start our own publishing of creator owned comics?
Another Rick & Morty Thread kaptainmyke 148 1 daykaptainmyke (12190): Somebody sent this sweet wallet to me from midtown comics but I don't know who - thank you whoever you may be!
The Sewer Lair - Turtle Talk - TMNT kaptainmyke 793 1 daykaptainmyke (12190):
WTT - JSC Phoenix for Mark Brooks Variants ThorneArt 1 1 dayThorneArt (298): Hello, I have a set of (3) JSC signed Phoenix Variants. I would like to trade some or all for some of the Psylocke Virgin Variants. Anyone have any interest in trading?
Steve Ditko Signature GAC 11 1 dayOdins_Raven (904): You would be hard pressed to find any Marvel comic signed by him on the market. I am willing to bet there are probably only a few dozen out there in private collections from folks who met him at the early conventions. Otherwise there are a handful of Mr. A comics/zines out there that have legit signatures. I know someone who has a legit signature on a Mr. A book.
Fellow Canadians - How is FedEx with fees? Thundergod73 6 1 dayfarseer (226): I've never had to pay any additional fees. My last two shipments were for 5 and 4 books and both were in the $50 to $55 dollar range for shipping. (I'm in Southern Ontario) For the 2nd to last shipment I did receive an invoice after the fact from FedEx with customs charges on it but I spoke to Jake in customer service and he took care of it for me.
Secret Santa sign up thread Jesse_O 167 1 dayshrewbeer (9097): That's a decent haul there. 1st Gold team, 1st Bishop and 1st Full Bishop, those three books are very common yet super rare in high grade newsstand (bar code). The bar code was actually hidden on the #281, on the back cover Be sure to share pics if you get that Wolverine sketched!
WTB - Uncanny X-Men #101 ThorneArt 5 1 dayThorneArt (298): Nothing like a restoration check, I just figured that it would be easier and more cost efficient to get a graded copy than it would be to get a raw copy and pay to get it graded myself. It is a grail for me this year. But thanks to a board member, that grail will be in my hands! Now onto a #95 or a #100 :)
Received a book ungraded 76muss 10 1 daydielinfinite (5932): @76muss A notification, not necessarily. If the order was input to not encapsulate if verification fails then they’d just be following the instructions on the order so it may not trigger a need to contact the customer. As for a refund, they might not refund the verification fees seeing as the verification work was done. I do believe the grading fees should’ve been refunded. That does require the order going back to the billing...
For Sale Tales of Suspense 52 x2 4.0 & .3 00slim 15 1 day00slim (2944): My thought was to make mine stand out. For little over the cost of of one, you got both.
Venom Lethal Protector Value Predictions? jdangerc 15 1 dayDrogio (1663): "Oh man!"
DNM #4 CGC 9.8 Mattina Virgin $0.99 auction poka 8 2 daysCopperAgeKids (1426): Eh, to ensure that you don't get hosed....I would add a bit to the description to clarify that a stock image was used for product identification only (like mycomic shop states in their stock image listings) and that, paraphrased: "This auction is for a CGC 9.8 Universal Grade of (book), the item will be shipped to the winning bidder on xx/xx/2018, after I receive this CGC confirmed pre-order CGC 9.8 Universal (book)." It helps to be...
Sears Marvel Collectors Kit! jdangerc 5 2 daysX51 (3913): I'm interested in seeing what the Nintendo assortment looked like.
Help With Grading Batman 227 Drogio 14 2 daysDrogio (1663): Apparently someone wanted this bad. $267....I can get a yellow label signed by mr. Adams (4.0) for $200... Pass. Thanks for everyone's input.
