I agree with you 100%. Was a difficult and challenging year for CBCS... I can live with delays. I do appreciate it when I'm communicated with and expectations are set or maybe re-set.



1st of all, Thank you for your private message Cwausti! I appreciated your input.

2nd, I didn't even look at it as CBCS having difficulties. I see what obstacles CBCS did, and is doing to heighten the integrity and credibility that business will carry for years to come. A big part of it was Mark Roman and the situation with AW's. Wow. I respect that highly, I see CBCS getting ready to go to the next level.

3rd Up until September, top quality! OK, so 4 slow months don't compare to 8 great ones.

I submitted all year long, from Feb till September, 104 books in total graded (including my 73 currently in grading). These are MY BOOKS, not books I am going to flip, these are books I'm going to hang on the wall. I did sell some (That AC bill I had to take care of.. lol)

CBCS had a situation with their plastic case supplier in Houston, we ALL KNOW HOUSTON was flooded and underwater, and so I am sure it forced them to look at future possible solutions if that situation was ever to arise again, not as in Flood wise, but finding a possible plan B.

My dad always asked me, "Is someone dying? Does someone need to go to the hospital?"
If the answer was "No," then chill out.

We can't control ACTS of GOD, but we can control how we respond to them. I'd rather wait for a job done with time being taken than a half a$$ed job in a rush. That is how I want my books treated.

Some people will laugh and ask why I got certain books graded as opposed to rarer ones and I have to keep my mind set to the 1st reason I got in to comic books, if certain books have invoke special memories to me, I want to encase them, regardless the grade I get them back in. Now if you want to collect and grade them because you think you will become rich quick, I'd tell you to take your money and invest it on Wall Street.. but that's just my suggestion.


Well said! I don't have hardly any "big boy books." I love collecting the more obscure books and especially autographed books. Each collector is different, which is what makes this hobby so unique and fun. Literally anyone can get into it!

So the other day my comics went from "Grading" to "Quality Control" to "Grading"

I received an e-mail this morning from Customer Service so I called them back around 11am Arizona time and followed up with them. No reply. So I left a message.

I admit, I was worried, figured some of my books were damaged, or lost or something.

Around 3pm, Arizona time, Jake returned my call and he asked about a Kelly Sue Deconnick Signature on a book, and I was like, "Captain Marvel #14, It was a Quoiones cover with a double signature of KSD and JQ" because it was the situation I remembered a bit back about one signature not being noted.

Then Jake Fleming remembered me, and an awesome conversation he had with my nephew back in September. (ref: http://forum.cbcscomics.com/topic/4488/page/1/mail-call--huge-thank-you-to-jake-fleming/#1)
Jake inquired how he was doing as well. I find that amazing that Jake remembered the situation, the talk, etc etc.

I get an email 5 minutes ago. "SHIPPED" ! wooh00 - I will continue to stand with CBCS. Thanks Jake for the follow up and fixing the little misconjecture.

Now the real anticipation starts.

oh wow.

If you sent them to get pressed and cleaned, I would then understand.
So they gave you a date so when they'd be shipped? Wow.
I would love it if someone told me the same instead of the lotto waiting game.
