New Personal AW application process Jake_Fleming 71 19 daysLemonMonster (58): Looks like I was denied for SDCC 2019 (always was approved by Mark Roman since 2016) so looks like I'll be doing CGC for grading. Not going to go to one side of the convention center to grab a witness for every single signature at different times. CBCS is in an area (spot 706) that doesn't make sense to be in the convention center, might be out of their hands but CGC are in two prime locations (spots 901 and 4315).

  CBCS FAQ Jesse_O 1 2 yearsJesse_O (10023): 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...

Could scare people off, afraid of fraud.
eBay canceled my listings.. Gabriel85301 49 2 hoursGabriel85301 (1393): Ok I fixed all my listings My thing, let's say the buyer can't find an affordable 9.8.. and wants to give it to someone as a gift, hence the 9.4 shows up as an option.. but oh well EBAY HAS SPOKEN! That's the rule. Now I know.

After asking around on a facebook forum they mentioned some process by which I can send submission information to the creator and then there is some form...
