  CBCS Authorized Signature Program announcements thread. Jesse_O 4 11 monthsJesse_O (21626): 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. We did not make these changes sitting in a boardroom, we actively solicited and received feedback from both our customers, creators and Authorized Witnesses.

  CBCS FAQ Jesse_O 1 4 yearsJesse_O (21626): 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...

It looks to be very much a reader. https://e3effa51eee72fd900e3-2fb779bd12ec72d4612275342f2c9187.ssl.cf1.rackcdn.com/cbd5436510481a4099f7ef2f33ecedd8.png I’ll be watching your sales thread to help out where I can!
xkonk's new sales thread xkonk 33 1 minxkonk (10360): Domino (2018 series) #1 Midtown variant, signed by writer Gail Simone. It has some Marvel rub on the back so I'll say VF, although I admit I don't know how CBCS/CGC treat it exactly. Asking $10. https://e3effa51eee72fd900e3-2fb779bd12ec72d4612275342f2c9187.ssl.cf1.rackcdn.com/6df7e144dd54e75d0a32a0b37160b1af.jpg https://e3effa51eee72fd900e3-2fb779bd12ec72d4612275342f2c9187.ssl.cf1.rackcdn.com/e209008c03a6c694a79e7febfbc2c1cc.jpg ...

Valuing ungraded comics RonMob 3 11 minutesDarkseid_of_town (8433): Superb advice..especially the highlighted part
My eBay and MCS stuff for sale lawguy1977 9 12 minutesJabberwookie (4016): @Darkseid_of_town Thank you for filling those details. I could not remember all that had been changed and I didn’t have the ability to pull it up and read it. I was trying to get a quick answer out and rely on my fellow comic experts to fill in any blanks. Mission accomplished!

Zack Snyder's Justice League (Official Trailer) theCapraAegagrus 83 54 minutesDWeeB1967 (3748): Unfortunately, Warner management haven't helped matters for Snyder with the DC films. I really liked "Man of Steel." I thought it was very well done and handled the issue of 'What happens when beings with superhuman abilities suddenly appear out of nowhere?' very well. It gave a real reason for Zod to be against Kal and I thought that Kal killing Zod was a realistic solution (not the most favorable result for Kal or viewers, but...

Monthly (Comic) Book Club - March - Deaths in the life of Spider-Man dielinfinite 13 2 hoursxkonk (10360): I blazed through issue 91 fairly quickly. There's a big shift from all the action in the previous two issues to this one, which is more about setting up some plot. Bullit is pretty menacing, both in words and appearance. Romita hits all the classic marks in terms of showing that he's a bad guy even if there were no text. It's kind of funny to see Peter succumb immediately to Godwin's Law. I guess some things, along with 'law and order'...
The Golden Age of comics The_Watcher 4376 3 hoursobrie2tm (3006): @esaravo 😂 if only a press would fix that! Thanks! Love the cover on the pre-superhero Adventure books. So dang hard to find!

Wow! Jabberwookie 23 4 hoursJabberwookie (4016): Ha ha! No, no. Probably the $650 it seems to be selling for pretty consistently. Or it was. Maybe $600 now. I’d take $1200 for it if someone was crazy enough to offer it, but won’t ask that high...yet.
All down hill for the USPS Paint_Monk 254 5 hoursJabberwookie (4016): Been meaning to update. Got my comic on March 4. Wow! I’m not sure if personally stamped mail is treated differently, but that’s the only book I’ve had that’s been really late through this. I’ll still support the USPS, but I hate that they are struggling right now. On a positive note: my JLA copy got delivered to the wrong address and my mail carrier found it and personally handed it to me to make sure I got it. I never even knew...
  Avengers #4...grade or not? MrNotSoNice 122 6 hoursRedmisty4me (768): I think you are confused, including about being confused, but that's okay - it happens. :D Wha'? (Makes no sense, and is simply further product of your confusion.) Bottom line is that the OP is IMHO making a mistake based on the state of the ACTUAL book, and that's fine - it's his book. :) But do let me know what sort of friendly agreement we're going to make on whether I'm right about the green labels - you've ensured that it's gone on record...
If you send in a Red Label to be pressed, do you pay again for Sig Verify? Comix_Toronto 4 6 hoursGAC (24214): @Scifinator @lawguy1977 are correct...send the books back still encapsulated. You'll pay for pressing and grading only. There are no longer Red labels, you will receive a Yellow label. TATs are long...pressing I believe is around 10 weeks and grading is 6-8 weeks.

GPA vs GoCollect.com revisited EbayMafia 20 8 hoursDarkseid_of_town (8433): Also just as likely, but you have to accept that the easiest books to recommend and suggest are those that you might favor or be heavily invested in yourself, even if it is done in sincerity
Curious if anyone else uses the Shortboxed App.... Darkseid_of_town 43 10 hoursDarkseid_of_town (8433): Reading the directions how to use the picture feature of the app reminds me of the app the insurance company used for when my car was damaged and I had to submit photos for an estimate for them. I clearly remember my frustration at getting pictures that were at the "my porridge is too hot" standards the app that day asked for lol....it was like finding that three bears level where everything was just perfect. I wonder if that...
ebay seller spring update poka 12 12 hoursRedmisty4me (768): Thank you for posting this - I almost started a thread about it last week, but wasn't sure how much interest there would be, or if people had taken the time to read about the changes. Surprised to say that a lot of them make sense, especially the concept of managed payments to officially open eBay back up to a variety of payment options beyond PayPal. (eBay took a move in this direction a few years ago, but the new changes will make it simpler...
Gunslinger Hype BrashSmurf 12 14 hoursPuckster (1165): I have years of collecting under my belt and amassed a fairly decent collection. Most of it either at cover price or less. If not that, then at a super reasonable price years ago. The past couple of years I have had a whole bunch of "Hey! I have that!" moments when I see a price make a crazy jump. Especially stuff that sat for years that was hardly worth anything. I stopped reading Spawn just before 150. Except for 111, I...

Question regarding a manufacturing error (I think) on an ASM 300 Carpendaddy 2 15 hoursEbayMafia (10311): I wouldn't spend any time worrying about it. Just press and clean and submit. It's either going to improve or it's not, but I don't see anything that should cause you to make any decision other than to submit for grading.
