  CBCS FAQ Jesse_O 1 8 monthsJesse_O (4819): 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...

my rant(as everyone gets a piece of the pie) Watcher 39 2 minutesWatcher (2083): true and point taken...but regarding the crack and pressure exerted on the box...I could step on that slab 100 times in a row (just me , the slab and a concrete floor) and not once would the force exerted be limited to the 1/2" corner (the most reinforced portion of the slab) without spidering deeper into the slab. A couple pounds of force may crack the surface area with ease when it's banged around (wrapped or not), but the force needed to...

ARTGERM does Wonder Woman OGJackster 11 2 hoursOGJackster (4654): I like it too. Sexy, yet strong. I agree most of the faces look the same but, it looks better some characters than others.

New to your collection #3 Jesse_O 125 3 hoursStudley_Dudley (1966): I would've thought that the newer books would not have had those issues still (assuming it is a printing error).
The "WANT TO BUY" Thread! (WTB) JLS_Comics 132 3 hoursKYoung_1974 (55): @danzies I have a raw, plain, jane regular gold second printing. I can dig it out and take some pictures.

Spielberg Blackhawks, woe Enelson 16 8 hoursdoog (706): I was laughing at my brother just last year because he was the only one I knew that collected Blackhawks, and Military with Blackhawk. “The definition of almost worthless “ I opined. He showed me his 133, which like all of his are ungraded, somewhere in the 9’s. Of course I have been too dumb to pull the trigger on a 133 since then. Used to be cheap to get the commons, as there are very few considered keys at all. Maybe all but a couple...
$300WTB Sleepwalker 1 & Fantastic Four 348 NewsstandSpecific 9 8 hoursVaComicsGuy (2392): @VictorCreed I was at a con with a friend. He wanted to get a SL sig so I figured I'd keep him company while he was waiting on line. I brought a Marvel Age 41 to get signed. When we got to the front of the line, a con rep told us that there was a maximum of 2 signatures -(2 free- no more but they had been saying 1 free sig before that) I figured why not have him sign a 2nd book. It was the only other book I had was SL or Marvel. FIgured...
Modern, copper, post modern? doog 6 8 hoursKYoung_1974 (55): We have the Golden Age, maybe we should start calling the 90's the Fool's Golden Age, since that's when all these multiple print runs/variant covers started and everybody bought them up planning to get rich.
And the winner is....(red goblin debut) Drogio 124 8 hoursthelastbard (1078): @Drogio 99% of the time, I'm just getting normal covers anyway. If I happen to get a random extra cover on top of it, that's just because I think they're really cool, not always with consideration of the potential value later on.

Which would you pay? $20 or $2000 conditionfreak 13 16 hoursCopperAgeKids (2476): I didn't see that... You've got me on that one, brother. I will go with my 2nd option; it is clickbait and/or actually intended to be a place holder, as the seller told you. But that is not to say that I buy his "sometimes I don't get around to finishing the listing" spiel.That is nonsense. It is click bait, plain and simple. Hell, it got me to take a quick look at a couple of his real auctions.As well as probably ...

What do you consider to be "High Grade"? Gaard 23 2 daysCatmanAmerica (4504): In situations like that perhaps a partial discount or credit might be offered in lieu of a full refund with return of the book. Also, serious collectors don't tend to mishandle high grade books that are purchased raw. It just seems prudent for dealers to trust the integrity of their customers, unless the buyer's grading complaints become a pattern of behavior. The best reason for extending the refund or rebate time to six months is...

I can't wait for this crossover!!! Dshel61 1 2 daysDshel61 (688):
Grading help/should I press Enelson 42 2 daysCopperAgeKids (2476): 9.4 is not ever going to happen with that book. The spine ticks and other unpressable defects* will prevent the book from grading above a 9.2 with a CPR. Considering the cost of a CPR, may as well just leave it as is. If you ever want to sell it, list it as "UNPRESSED"; at around the GPA high for its currently slabbed grade. * If the white...
The Power of Free Shipping? 00slim 11 2 daysEnelson (52): I just had this internal debate. I just listed these with free shipping, curious to see what happens. I don't sell a ton, but I didn't realize how popular these j Scott Campbell covers were,so we'll see what happens

Stan Lee DNA ink doog 8 2 daysCopperAgeKids (2476): Nevermind.
Eternals movie rumors doog 17 2 daysthelastbard (1078): I happened to pick up Eternals 1 a few months ago on a kick for dirt cheap, because I've always wanted it (Kirby!)... didn't think about the movie side of things, but glad I snagged it before the hype. I doubt it would grade high, but with a press, it might hit 9.0. I'd have to check it again. Regardless, just glad to have the Kirby history.
Let's Talk About Stan Lee JLS_Comics 55 2 daysRyanHicks (949): Edit: the portion of the post that was quoted was deleted by the moderators. CBCS does very little, if any, business with Chandler still. Chandler used to witness for CBCS but is no longer a CBCS facilitator as far as I'm aware.
