CBCS Turnaround 3.0 Virgincollector 971 11 hoursSauceDog (50): I tried calling them back today as instructed earlier this week, but something seems broken with their phones. The moment I hear someone pick up (after being placed on hold and waiting with the music for 10-15 minutes) they immediately cut out and the call goes silent (not hung up on, call keeps going on if I don't hang up but nothing is coming from their end). Tried three times already calling in, and it's the same problem every...

  CBCS FAQ Jesse_O 1 3 yearsJesse_O (17280): What does a checkmark (asterisk online) by the grade mean? In rare cases, a comic book will look much better than the given grade. In these rare cases, a Check Mark will be placed on the label by the numerical grade. The best way to understand why a specific comic book received a Check Mark designation is to refer to the graders' notes. Example: a comic is graded 8.0. However, the covers are such that it looks like a 8.5 or a 9.0. CBCS...

Should I Purchase Hobby Insurance? Rinova 2 1 mindielinfinite (13257): Here are a couple of threads discussing the topic.
New to your collection #9 GanaSoth 133 4 minutessportshort (2927): @Darkseid_of_town, that would be a bonus, I just picked items that I thought looked cool that I normally wouldn't buy and found these gems. I like my choices and thanks for the tip sir, I appreciate it.
Off topic; Pub, what are you drinking? Frontier2Xterra 190 10 minutesesaravo (34878): @BrianGreensnips - That's a blast from the past; I didn't know that brand was still around! Were they out of Piel's, Ortleib's, and Carling's Black Label?
The old debate...Giant size 1 vs Hulk 181.... Darkseid_of_town 153 15 minutesdoog (3345): My son who has a collectibles store believes old video games have been his most profitable items lately, although he has done well with Pokémon, Magic, etc, and always comics. Expensive key comics are gold to hold however, and still sell easily. He knows to stash the best of the best that trickles through his fingers for 30 years if possible. It’s fun to speculate what a 9.8 Batman Adventures 12 For instance might be worth in 30 years. I...

It’s in the guide just past the Slab-Only option Turnaround time for CBCS Pressing is still a terrible problem. I cannot recommend it. Regular grading submissions are only about 5 weeks at the moment

Verified now yellow labels? mediaslave 145 53 minutesmediaslave (465): Oh, and I didn't say the shops don't necessarily like cbcs, I said that they don't offer them. I have never been in a shop where they have listed cbcs as an option voluntarily. I don't know if that has anything to do with cbcs as a brand or if it has something to do with the margins they make. As I've stated multiple times I think cbcs offers a superior product. I think they're grading is more consistent, the cases are better calling the...

From experience what is your typical Processing time on 2 Day Modern oakcitycomics 4 6 hoursDarryl_H (1199): Two-day modern tier: This tier is on time. (If you are having issues please PM me) The 2-day tier is for grading so any add ons such as imaging or VSP can add time to the turnaround. This is normal. Example VSP on a two day will add a week or two for the verification process. The 2 day turn around would not start until the VSP is completed. Same with something being imaged. The Imaging will add time to the back end, not much only a day or...

One book is not in the condition I remember it being listed or I doubt I would have bought it for the price I did and his shipping/packaging was subpar. Book could have been damaged over the 4 months in transit due to his packaging or the damage could have already been there. Can't tell since the listing was taken down. I...
