CBCS Turnaround 3.0 Virgincollector 837 54 minutesPaint_Monk (1126): Maybe I just had a lucky run the last few submissions netting 2x 9.8s in each submission among the other stuff. But this batch is enough to keep me from submitting for a while. Not CBCS fault of course, as grades need to be fair and honest. I just need to re-assess which books I send in as well as my own seemingly poor skills at finding good candidates for grading.
Weekly Cover Contest Discussion Thread DrWatson 274 2 hoursJesse_O (16406): @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 16 daysdielinfinite (12752): 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...

Schedule an appointment with us! Jake_Fleming 37 8 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 (16406): 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...

Ebay Deals, Dreck and Goofiness EbaySeller 189 3 hoursStudley_Dudley (12359): It was small amount, like $15. He did offer to pay me back, but I just let it go. I was more irritated that the claim was opened without reaching out to me first. I felt it wasn't hard to contact me since I was messaging him to tell him that I was working with the post office to track down the package. He left positive feedback, so I guess that's a win.
