I'm not experienced enough to assign a numerical grade to them; but they're all clean & presentable. The Spider-Man #1 "Torment" style covers are going on the wall opposite the set of ASM #300 cover swipes; book-ending the room w/ comics. I'm also keeping the Jamie Tyndall Gwenom covers, they look awesome. The rest are going to be admired for a bit, then find their way out to see if they can find a forever home.

LOL. I want to get a run of all yellow labels.

Damn! That's awesome Gabriel. I have the Life Of Captain Marvel mini-series in pretty good shape, and a Ms. Marvel #3 I think. I also have the #1's from the recent run. She's a fun character; I really liked that they used her as a principal in Civil War II.

Heh, I've been saving up all year to be able to do this. Problem is...its just too easy. I already have a long-box filling up with the "next" large submission:

Aliens Predator: Deadliest of the Species (full set except for the Silver Ashcan, which I cannot find).
Aliens 1st & 2nd series
Carnage (2016) full run
Maximum Carnage, full run, Dynamic Forces signed edition copies
Predator 1st series
Aliens Vs Predator 1st series full run
Batman: Harley Quinn 1st print
Jokers Asylum II: Harley Quinn 1st print
Arkham Asylum 1st Print (have to call customer service & ask about this one)
Edge of Venomverse full set
Venomverse (full set except for the two McFarlane variants...for my budget does have limits)
Secret Wars II
Secret Wars III
Deadpool's Secret Secret Wars
Deadpool Back in Black full set
Spider-Man Back in Black full set

"So much to do, and so little time..."

I have over 15 of the SDCC Captain Marvel Statue. They only made 1500, so I got what, 1% of them? I bought them for $13 a piece from a local comic book owner who was trying to sell them at couldn't.



I was going to sell a Statue and slab or two as package deal when I got them back.

My next submission is

Fantastic Four #36
Fantastic Four #45
a bunch of Street Fighter Kandoken Variants.
Some Moon Knight stuff too..

I don’t even want to think of the grading and shipping costs of those orders. My biggest order is in shipping now and it’s a whopping 8 books.

It was over $1500. Shipping was over $150. I submitted them at a Con were I got all the signatures for them. I wanted to make sure I made $100 membership I bought well worth it. I still have 1 fast pass. :/

BTW. Just a heads up, I am planning on taking all the NM Captain Marvel #1s (from 2012 and 2014) on ebay if they are under $20 in the next several months. You all got to Friday till I go shopping before I snag that market. LOL. 😈

Gabriel,

I'll take photos of the two Captain Marvel #1's I've got & see if you want them. I'm trying to merchandise some of my collection to make room for more Spider-Man. 2018 goal is to plug the few holes in Punisher to make it a complete set; Series 1 #1 to Current, plus the various limited runs (Back to School Special, POV, Armory, Hearts of Darkness, etc.). Going to be fun to see what I can get when I list the complete collection.

I goofed. Customer service called & told me I submitted three books that I forgot to put on the invoice:

ASM #298
ASM #299
Marvel Legacy #1

Oops.

They also guesstimated the TAT at being ready to ship sometime in March. Methinks this is optimistic, but it would be nice.

I purchased a comic by John Tyler Christopher on September 19, he would sign it and have it graded, then shipped to him than, then shipped to me. Guess what I got in the mail today? The 9.8 book came in.


So I am guessing, aside from our comics, creators probably get dibs on a turnaround if they got something set with CBCS, even if they fast passed it. I ain't complaining about how long it takes, just kinda noticed it.

When I spoke w/ Customer Service, I half-jokingly said, "Yeah, I know, you guys bump small orders like mine if/when Dynamic Forces or Stan Lee Collectibles send you an order for a Limited Edition signed run of 5000 or so." The guy laughed & said, "Well, it *is* a business, its not personal." Nice to know we've got Don Corleone making the calls in Florida.

This is a huge reason I like AW witnesses to submit books under my own account, not on their accounts, I can keep track of where in the process is my books.

I have my 2018 calendar marked up already for the big order. I have a dark blue tab at twelve weeks, a light blue at thirteen, yellow at fourteen, and then varying shades of yellow-through red to eighteen weeks. I threw a purple tab out at week thirty; I hope it doesn't get to that point, but if it does I'll have been holding my breath long enough that purple seemed like the appropriate color.

Yo,

My 73 books are now in Quality Control.

After they are done with my books, the process will probably be speed up.

@Gabriel85301 About the same TAT as the order I sent in August 10th, ~20wks. Good luck sir, I hope you put up some outstanding numbers!

I just checked my invoice on the Aliens mini's, and it says "Processed within 5 weeks of receipt"! A five week TAT would be lovely...
