COLLECTOR JLS_Comics private msg quote post Address this user
@Lonestar It is called Comiconversation. Normally I would say just search JLS Comics on iTunes but I have to renew my rss host subscription. Right now, we're just doing a live vidcast on YouTube

One more thing are you guys looking at anything for the outer shell also?


The CBCS outer shell, with the addition of the CGC's revised label, is NOT a security issue.

Please refer to post #17 by Iron Man, in the thread below, which addresses the substance of your concern,

Iron Man is Tony Starks, of Comics In A Flash, for those who did not know that. He knows this business, inside and out.

Just so you understand the outer shell can be opened with a bottle opener and can be closed back up by putting it on a solid flat surface and hitting it with the palm of your hand. How is that a good thing that someone can get the pliable inner well in their hands to do with as they will? Then they can close it back up with no signs of it ever being opened.




Even CBCS says the outer shell is tamper evident but it is NOT.

Really?

I mean, heat seals on labels are all well and good, but to me the real problem here has still not been addressed. And that is that the CBCS holder can be opened and snapped shut repeatedly with no evidence visible at all.

This issue is irrelevant since neither the label or book can be changed without obvious signs of tampering, which is why they've made this change.

So I guess CBCS just needs to update the website
that the out shell is Not tamper evident.

Agreed. With this security measure in place, I don't see any issue moving forward since label swaps will be virtually impossible to pull off without damaging the labels.

No, that would be an oxymoron.

Over the last few weeks we have been testing different ideas to arrive at the best solution. Our goal was to prevent the CBCS label from being removed without showing obvious signs of damage. This would eliminate the ability for labels to be switched. We have determined that the answer lies in the holofoil CBCS logo.

Effective immediately, CBCS will be placing a seal through the holofoil CBCS logo. The reason for this is that when the label is removed, it will peel off a portion of the CBCS logo making the tampering extremely obvious.

As always, we thank you all for your support of CBCS.

An image of the new seal is below...



Steve, really pleased to see that the label has been modified to combat potential tampering. Has the case been altered at all to prevent the opening and closing of it that was demonstrated on the recent videos?

I will as soon as I get back in the office on Tuesday. I'm in Baltimore until then.


Hi Steve. Could we please see an example of what a tampered label looks like with the redesign?

I remember someone asking for me to post an image of what the label looks like when you remove it after we've made the seal change. Sorry this took so long. We have so many things going on it slipped my mind.

Does it exhibit any damage to the back side?

While it is nice to see CBCS taking steps to address security concerns, Im not sure those labels are exhibiting enough damage that they couldn't still be doctored. Which does still make the issue of opening and closing the outer shell an issue to me personally.

I don't think anything is a 100% - but this goes a long way to ease everyone's mind. By and large security isn't that much of an issue IMHO.

Maybe not on all of the new modern books, But if Im shelling out serious dough for High dollar Golden and Silver Age Keys.... You better believe Security is First and Foremost on my mind.
