|It seems what we're complaining about is what's been taken away...9.8 grading notes, low prices and a very high standard in shipping materials/packing.
Not sure if the buyout by Beckett is to blame, but these all seem to have happened around that transition period. Not to say "just accept it", but companies are always looking at ways to keep costs down while taking a few risks and losing a few customers as long as it puts more $$$ in their revenues.

|Could they be between stages with the inner-boxes? I'm hoping they're simply rebranding the boxes and they'll make a comeback incorporating the Beckett brand.
Just a theory.

|All companies and people go through growing pains. We all understand that.
But I still do not like this Beckett aspect. Do I want my cupcakes from the local bakery or from Wal-Mart?
I'll take the former please.
I get the feeling (and it is only speculation based on experience), that a Beckett "business consultant" has entered CBCS and changing things to make a larger profit. That ALWAYS entails cutting frills and corners. Thus you lose the mom and pop store mentality and get the big box store model.
Like I said. I know nothing about what is going on with CBCS, except what I read here and experience in the hobby. I agree with Themaxx35.
Like many here. I am buying CBCS books submitted by others, instead of submitting my own, for the time being. Until things shake out and I see what is what.

The original Thanatos was the Greek god of death.
