CBCS Pressing Update SteveRicketts 100 50 minutesSteveRicketts (8972): Aside from a few large orders that are being processed in-tandum, I believe all orders from August and before are pressed. Your order was not received at our office until 9/11. The September date you see is the date you filled out the invoice.
CBCS Turnaround 3.0 Virgincollector 870 6 hoursScifinator (1328): LOL - Of course, you just got the same In Shipping Friday curse that I usually get. Now, you wait all weekend for Monday, click back in several times throughout Monday, Tuesday, etc seeing if you can glimpse the grades prior to the "Shipped" email. So far, this cheat has enabled me to see grades three times before the official notification. Out of about 2 dozen shipments, so, doesn't usually work.
Weekly Cover Contest Discussion Thread DrWatson 274 7 daysJesse_O (16520): @Pre_Coder it's from one of the Scandinavian countries. I can't recall which one right now. I was VERY close to entering it, but there were already multiple innuendo covers at that point.
CBCS 101: A Newbie's Guide. dielinfinite 13 23 daysdielinfinite (12791): An addendum to the Slab-Only post above: If you have a signed slab-only book and you want it graded after the fact, you add the book to the invoice as a normal blue label and then on the invoice just write a note to the effect of “keep verified red label signature.” So in essence you’re only paying whatever the grading fees would be for the book and not repaying any sort of fees for the red label, since you’ve already paid for the...

  CBCS Authorized Signature Program announcements thread. Jesse_O 4 2 monthsJesse_O (16520): 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.

Schedule an appointment with us! Jake_Fleming 37 9 monthsWalker1 (18): I recently sent books by mail and had it so they had to sign when recieved(sent usps). They signed, sent an e mail when the books were put away until graded, once grading started and I am sure once sent out. To ease nerves use a system that tracks mail sent out like usps.

  CBCS FAQ Jesse_O 1 3 yearsJesse_O (16520): 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...

New pence to my collection OGJackster 180 1 hourStudley_Dudley (12658): All four were bought recently, with three from Stephen. I guess he's been gone a while from here. I ran into him over on the CGC forum. I was trying to find out if another person I bought books off of was still there, but he hasn't been logged in over there since September. Anyways, Stephen sent me a message last year that somehow got buried or I forgot about it (most likely). I got back to him and we reached a deal.

Submussion return shipping cost groovy31 18 15 hoursMountie73 (1302): Insured value is a big part. So mine are all st 1 dollar value. When the total value goes over 500 is when the insurance cost begins to rise.(If I am remembering right) Also, 30 is the max in a box. I alway send in multiples of 30 so I get a fu)l box worth. By sending 30 my shipping averages to 2 dollars or less per book to North Carolina. I am fine with that. Hope this helps someone.

June 2020 CBCS Promo Question? 00slim 9 23 hourschester15 (309): It is nice for CBCS to offer discounts, but this particular type of offer causes a lot of questions. Legit questions. Since it is dependent upon meeting a specific number requirement, things that affect the net number mess you up. If you try to plan for extras, you will likely hit a higher shipping plateau, wiping out your savings. The best discounts are % off type offers that can be applied across the board, eliminating problems caused by...
