Dude, you're gettin' a Dell earthshaker01 private msg quote post Address this user
Not too long just hold your breath, lol. Seriously I don't think for awhile. To enginner a new holder costs money and there has to be a demand for the service to make it worth while.
Not sure if the cost benfit analysis would be good right now. Seems like they are busy enough with grading comics at this point.

The demand is there. They have said the hold up is the cost of the molds, about $72K iirc. It's definitely coming #someday. In the mean time they do offer Raw Grade for magazine size, if you're into that sorta thing.

I want you all to know that we are actively moving towards this, but don't count on it happening soon.

I've got a magazine-size long box full waiting to go. Kiss #1, Savage Tales #1 (first man thing), some old Vampi's and Erie's. Struggling not to go CGC...

Even after they pay for the molds, it's probably about 18 months from design concept to finished product in stock ready to accept books. I agree with the Kickstarter idea, just get this puppy rolling.

Michael said it was 70k, right? If they wont do it, someone just start one and hand it over to them 💵

18 months??? Wow, if that's true I'm going to have to figure out CGC again. Shoot me now, can't stand them but I do want some of these slabbed this decade 😟

@Broker1 I'm pulling that figure from CGC, during the #slabgate they had said redesign of the outer shell was not a workable solution because it 18 months to actually make that happen, so their solution had to continue working with the new outer shell, and find a solution using the old inner well inside the new shell. At least that is how I remember it.
