CBCS 101: A Newbie's Guide. dielinfinite 425 2 monthsPaul_G (43): So my first every batch just came back from CBCS. Sent via Oakville August 2021 ("Received" November 2021), half with pressing. I had received 4 later orders back before this first one (no pressing being the key). As you will see above in this thread: you need to go to your dashboard, click on the order, then download the order PDF --this is what gets updated more reliably. The dashboard itself rarely updates from received or...

  CBCS Official Statement J.Haas 128 5 monthsJesse_O (35400): Well, after reading up on the situation, I better understand what you are referring to. I didn't get too deep into it, but from what I see these are foil images added right to the existing cover. At least as early as 2009, CGC was giving these universal labels and calling them variants. If I got that wrong, please clarify. I'm guessing that since CGC had set that precedent, CBCS followed suit. As to whether or not these ARE variants seems to...

  CBCS Authorized Signature Program announcements thread. Jesse_O 4 3 yearsJesse_O (35400): 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.

  CBCS FAQ Jesse_O 1 5 yearsJesse_O (35400): 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...

James Gunn's DCU Plan GAC 24 19 minutesByrdibyrd (21511): Agreed. Having the competition out there will keep both of them putting out higher quality product rather than getting lazy, which would explain a couple lackluster Marvel efforts lately.

The "other" company had delay problems too, as we all know. The difference here is THEY fixed their problems and delays with additional hires. But since we all know about cbcs's delays for over a year now, we're desensitized to it. I can fully understand @LotsaSequel's anger of this. Now...

As I said many times and don't hide my feelings - I feel this whole grading thing is one big pyramid scheme silly game. Some call it a necessary evil and other euphemisms. Quite frankly I call it B.S. But that's just my personal feelings. Ultimately it makes me good money and profiting off others who don't feel as I do. Good enough for me in a hobby that's been destroyed in many...
