  CBCS FAQ Jesse_O 1 4 yearsJesse_O (25881): 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...

Toledo, Oh. 43613 It’s called northwest oh comic collector or something or another. I’m not familiar with the function at all. The hours are 10-4. It’s only 2 miles south of the border but smack dab between I-75 and 23, you’d have to drive east or west on something like Alexis depending on which e way you come down. Being only one day...
Just came in today... mini mail call DertyComix 18 1 dayByrdibyrd (192): @TigerRose1981 Yes, it does. The signature witnessing is cool, but having that as the only option when comics have been around for a century is just not realistic, in my opinion.

I'm guessing there is something seriously wrong with gocollect sportshort 37 2 daysDavethebrave (1106): There is no multiplier being used as a rule to generate their FMV data. They may use it as a generic example or perhaps If there is an empty slot (no data) maybe they interpolate based on that but that isn’t their FMV calc as generally applied. As for what is going on today on GC, it is just more messed up than usual. There are books showing the same FMV across multiple grades. They may have a database issue going on or something as...
Interesting Exchange on Facebook Concerning the cgc Marketplace DrWatson 41 2 daysDrWatson (24690): The moderators here put up with a lot.

I know that Jesse has had to weather personal insults simply because he is the face of CBCS moderation. Everyone here typically gets the benefit of the doubt. The ones that show up just to criticize, contribute nothing, and only have negative things to say about CBCS or...
