Weekly Cover Contest Discussion Thread Part Deux DrWatson 361 16 hoursEbayMafia (32491): Rom covers are chock full of random crossovers. Thinking maybe I should have gone with Power-man and Iron Fist...or Namor...or maybe King Arthur:
Turn Around Time 10.0 tylerindo 783 2 daysRljj812 (4): So I submitted 3 books and they were received on 4/26. Fast approaching the 30day turn around time as I sit here on 5/26 and have not seen nor heard about any updates. So much for improved turn around times and guarantees about getting back to you in 30 days. At some point you have to decide if the time is worth the cost. My last submission of 3 modern books (No verification & No press) took a year. This is just frustrating.
CBCS Pressing Update Vol 1, #2 SteveRicketts 700 3 daysSteveRicketts (16676): All April orders will be pressed and moved to grading by tomorrow.
CBCS 101: A Newbie's Guide. dielinfinite 459 8 daysxkonk (16380): @Buzbe I'm not sure what CGC would do if you send it to them. If the case is broken they might regrade it even if you ask for a reholder. If you send it to CBCS they'll regrade it because it wasn't theirs.

  CBCS Authorized Signature Program announcements thread. Jesse_O 4 3 yearsJesse_O (36537): ASP rule changes from 2018. CBCS is announcing some changes to our Authentic Signature Program. CBCS is dedicated to keeping the integrity of the ASP at the highest level, and over the last 12 months, it has become evident that change was needed. We did not make these changes sitting in a boardroom, we actively solicited and received feedback from both our customers, creators and Authorized Witnesses.

  CBCS FAQ Jesse_O 1 6 yearsJesse_O (36537): 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...

OT; What are you eating/ cooking; Part 3. HeinzDad 737 2 hoursDrWatson (40904): @GAC Those look good. 👍 I have a cousin who makes what she calls a toasted coconut pie. Your pies remind of me of those. She give me the recipe, but I think she left something out as mine never turned out as good as hers. I gave up trying to make it.
My very first Ebay negative after 5000 positives- ouch ain't fair harmonicaman 49 3 hourschester15 (1329): Yeah, I'm a new breed - a dinosaur/millennial. I guess this is why they invented the saying "agree to disagree" (completely). It's a no-win situation.

Need help with signature(s) DK III cesidio 6 9 hourscesidio (1035): You are correct hard cover and inner blank signatures. Beckett verification fees with return shipping are going to be 126 USA even with promo code. Unfortunately no reputable third party is grading raw or slabs this size so going to hope this will be the next thing announces by cbcs or the other guy

Damaged book during grading S10angler 39 15 hoursComicHoarder (991): The slab will be cracked open, graded again and you will receive a check for the difference in FMV between the two grades. This is unfortunate but you’ll be made whole. Unlike the poor SOB who subbed a rock solid 9.8 raw Ultimate Fallout 4 1st print to CGC, and received a different copy, a very loosely graded 9.6 in return. He called it out on CGC’s board and got a payout, but from the sound of it, it wasn’t nearly what was owed to...
The Copper Age of Comics 1985 - 2008 GAC 221 15 hoursInstant_Subtitles (781): Love this cover, and love the fact the story is totally different from what the cover offers. :beer:
Monthly (Comic) Book Club - May - X-Men: Fatal Attractions 30th Anniversary dielinfinite 45 16 hoursxkonk (16380): The story wraps in Excalibur 71, which feels a little anticlimactic. X-Men 25 had the big payoff and was an 'anniversary' book, and Wolverine 75 was pivotal in his story and an 'anniversary' book. And now we have... Excalibur? But it does try to tie the thread of Colossus' decision to join the Acolytes. Xavier thinks that it's due to a head injury more than Peter's own decision, which is very Xavier of him. We get more characters making the...

Tales Of The Unexpected #16 I currently have 4 copies of TOTE 16, been hunting that book since I found out it has the first appearance of Thor by Kirby in comics back in 2016. I regret not scooping up more of them, it started getting market recognition about a year and a half ago, when CGC began labeling the book correctly, which coincided with the buildup to the most recent Thor movie. I have only sold 1...

Back cover question Jgwalters100 8 3 daysxkonk (16380): I would consider it a kind of restoration, but a CBCS slab will say "married" instead of "restored". It will also say what was added in, the same way it would describe what restoration was done.
