Turnaround time 9.0 dielinfinite 69 47 minutesScifinator (10512): @Rio_d @etapi65 - If in HeatSeal, you are pretty darn close. You may or may not see Encapsulation, QC, Shipping. These are hours to days in the processing timeline. Shipping may take the longest, depending on the flow. That could be a day to two weeks. You may not even see that if the flow is faster than the Dashboard update or State Email. Cheers!

  CBCS Authorized Signature Program announcements thread. Jesse_O 4 2 yearsJesse_O (30298): 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 5 yearsJesse_O (30298): 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...

SELL or HOLD? Scifinator 557 5 minutesScifinator (10512): @00slim - There are actually two covers. I picked up a lot of the Neil Gaiman Tekno titles back when they were produced. Not special enough in my heart to be part of my Force Ghost (permanent) collection hence why I sent to MCS. https://e3effa51eee72fd900e3-2fb779bd12ec72d4612275342f2c9187.ssl.cf1.rackcdn.com/8f13cb111d7b675f62d54de22eca8b98.jpg

CBCS and CGC slab lot! Last chance auction! Great deal! Watcher5866 4 2 hoursWatcher5866 (194): Yeah, I guess that’s how the cookie crumbles! Sorry you missed it! I even gave a second chance auction. Next time I’ll put it for 5 days. I’m surprised also, when you see 17 people watching you’d think more people would bid on it? Guess I was wrong. Save me as seller. I’ll have more like it in a month or two.

Express grading question sylcarlin 20 2 hoursSigur_Ros (1184): To be fair, they were always getting bumped for faster submissions. I submitted 40~ish books last July, but in the mean time did a couple 2-day submissions which took about a week each. Decided I was only going to do 2-day from now on. Well, that's gone. Now I'm at the point of waiting 'til the rest of my books come back, patiently, but if they are all scuffed like the 9 that came back a month ago, I'll probably not even renew my (more...

Werewolf by night 32 Cosmic_Surfer 11 13 hourschester15 (1183): Looks good to me! Wish I had one. You might want to check that you have all the pages, ad pages especially. I think Grand Comic Book Database tells you what each leaf should be, whether story page or ad page. It was not an issue that had an MVS, so that's good.
CBCS Only Slabs You Just Got Back #2 GAC 37 13 hoursByrdibyrd (5808): Here's an odd submission. I put this together because I wanted to show a friend of mine who was considering getting some books graded how it was done. I just grabbed books of minor priority and sent them in On The Cheap - Modern Tier, no press, no fast pass. Just a mish-mash of books, but some that were at the top of the stack were Spider-Man anniversary books, so there are a bunch of those here. First off is the obligatory AS-M #365, which is...

I think SE2 came out before SS16. It may have been because the latter is just a beast in size, complicating storage. Or maybe it was SE2 was more distributed on magazine racks while SS2 had a smaller distribution? My copies shown. ...

Big news from MCS, CBCS & Borock sborock 147 22 hoursJesse_O (30298): I remember when CBCS was moving to Dallas. Some people thought they were bankrupt and dying.

There are MANY great things coming to CBCS!!! I know everyone is tired of waiting for certain things. Well, things are in the works that will knock your socks off!!! CBCS isn't going...

Ebay Deals, Dreck and Goofiness pt.2 GAC 146 1 dayDavethebrave (5503): Just had a comic delivered. SA book in a modern bag/board. Squished in there, so of course the book’s edge is completely mashed into the bag-edge too. Will post photos after I see what the seller has to say. This is someone with multiple comic listings, not an antiques dealer with some random books… Edit: yes, inadequately protected for shipping too but somehow the outer thin mailing envelope survived…
