New Personal AW application process Jake_Fleming 56 2 daysdielinfinite (10050): Yes, you have to go to the booth first. If a witness isn’t there when the book is signed, it can’t get a yellow label. You go to the booth and let them know you need a witness for a signing. They’ll send someone with you to witness the signing and then walk the book back to the booth. If it’s going to be a busy signing with a long wait, stop by the booth and let them know. They’ll likely give you someone’s phone number and ask...

Schedule an appointment with us! Jake_Fleming 36 1 monthVirgincollector (194): Had no issue dropping off at SC con dropped off about 120 blue label subs and about 19 yellow label subs and there were no extra fees to drop them off at a Con, Total drop off amount about $1450.00 for grading all modern. Saved about $200 not shipping out myself. I have a friend who spends $ on a one day ticket at any con nearby just so he can drop off in person and he saves a lot and it’s better for the blood pressure Lol! Not sure any of...

  CBCS FAQ Jesse_O 1 2 yearsJesse_O (9119): 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...

CBCS at comic cons CLT 8 1 mindielinfinite (10050): @CLT No they do not do any grading/slabbing/reslabbing at cons but if you get in contact with customer service and let them know you will be attending a convention where CBCS will be (this might be cutting it close) as well as the invoice number and the issue with the book (a photo of the damage wouldn’t hurt either), you may be able to drop the book off at the convention so they can take it back to the office and fix it and ship it back for...
New To Your Collection #4 Frontier2Xterra 878 6 minutesEnelson (1293): @kaptainmyke yeah, that's exactly what I thought, at that point unless there are detailed cataloging and organization systems it is straight up hoarding. At that point, it's not even fun anymore. You have no idea what you have, you never see it, never display, you just have it and can't let go. If the story is the guy is terminal he really should consider helping his wife out because no one wants to deal with that amount of things after...
IH 181 lost/assumed stolen by buyer in Canada poka 29 37 minutesCaptainCanuck (2100): Furthermore, GSP items are initially shipped to Kentucky where they are opened to “verify the contents”. Some packages are also repackaged. This is a lot of extra handling that leaves a comic book susceptible to damage. If a comic book does get delivered damaged, I doubt that the GSP would take responsibility. A diligent seller who packages their items securely could get blamed. A web search will give you many stories of GSP packages that...

Auction Wins Post Em If You Got Em drchaos 574 1 hourPaulbg2000 (1982): I was on the hunt locally for an Iron Man 128 for a Bob Layton AW Signature, getting a little close to convention time, so I rolled the dice on this book on ebay for $30(US)...I mean, it's an iconic cover. I see the color breaking spine ticks, I'm hoping the paper at the top on the back is stuck to the tape and not the book, it doesn't appear that there's any tearing. At first, I thought that was a stain at the top right corner, but it looks...

"Marvel" Labels Nuffsaid111 31 22 hoursDrogio (4806): Got it ironed out. It’s one tier across the different labels. I must’ve messed it up. It’s still a different tier than a regular label which is misleading when they say “only $5!!!” But whatever. It’s because the fancy label is processed differently.....goes somewhere else (likely across the hall, lol.)
