Turnaround 4.0 TMAN1980 307 12 hoursNamrepus28 (81): Thanks Darryl! The biggest one is not knowing how the process works considering the current circumstances with the border. I've had one of my orders saying "ShiptoCanada" for quite some time now. I'm guessing CBCS is going to collect a bunch and send them all back together? Or is it waiting for my modern order to be processed? If that's the case, correct me if I'm wrong, but normally when submissions are sent in with different...
Weekly Cover Contest Discussion Thread DrWatson 379 1 dayJesse_O (19787): Here's a piece of published original art where the hero has wings. I felt I was lucky to win this piece on eBay a few years ago. This is page 6 from Captain America: Sam Wilson #6, April, 2016. It is of Joaquin Torres before his role as Falcon. He is battling the Serpent Solution: Viper, Bushmaster and King Cobra. This is the...
CBCS Pressing Update SteveRicketts 564 1 dayNaurd123 (36): Books your going to keep in your collect ya waiting is ok. If you churning your books for sale no. For books I’m churning I use all the fast services. Running 4 to 6 weeks. CBCS pressing is so superior compared to the competition. Quality trumps quantity. Pressers aren’t sitting at home waiting to be hired. Tough situation for the grading companies.

  CBCS Authorized Signature Program announcements thread. Jesse_O 4 7 monthsJesse_O (19787): 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 3 yearsJesse_O (19787): 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...

NFL 2020 week 12 picks and discussion Jesse_O 26 1 hourPre_Coder (10968): Washington - 41 Dallas - 16 HELL YEAH! :beer: Yes, I picked Dallas for the win because they always seem to have Washington's number, especially on Thanksgiving. But the Redskin's defense was cookin'. And Alex Smith, who was near death 2 years ago due to busted leg, bacterial infection, 16 surgeries, almost a leg amputation,... no turkey leg for him,.. he deserves the entire feast! And Jerry Jones was sitting up there in his booth...

Does CBCS have plans for a price guide? HulkSmash 6 2 hoursEbaySeller (7156): The internet now gives us a public record of daily transactions. Price guides don't really serve their intended purpose anymore. Even for Overstreet the prices are pretty much the least important part of the book.

Auction Wins thread 2 xkonk 285 13 hoursKatKomics (10403): thankfully I've bought from these guys pretty consistently over the last few years. Their grading is usually bang on....I think in all the time I have only been bitten once. Usually if there are any flaws then they will take additional close up photos. I agree though...if I had not bought from them before I too would think they didn't have enough. Only possible regret in this grouping is TMNT #8...I swear I have that book...but my excel does not...

Check out the 1986 ad prices (back of X-Men # 202) drchaos 10 23 hoursEbaySeller (7156): My wife's parents still have the rental copy of Sound of Music that they had to buy for $100 after their VCR damaged it. I think that after spending $100 they felt compelled to watch it like 80 times and the whole dang family memorized the movie. In hindsight, that's probably something my wife should have disclosed to me before I agreed to marry her. That she had memorized every song from The Sound of Music. Yeesh.
