Mid-to-Low Grade Mail Call dielinfinite 7 1 monthdielinfinite (26345): Thanks guys! @Nuffsaid111 Thank you! That was actually a book my dad picked out and bought on his own. Not sure if he got whiff of them trying to get a movie off the ground or if it was something he remembered from his childhood but it was a good pick! Last year at SDCC I noticed a lot more localized manga books (Pokemon, Ghost in the Shell, Akira, etc) on dealers’ walls so it looks like there is interest out there!

Mail Call - Signed comics sportshort 20 1 monthsportshort (14124): It struck me, I could easily be wrong on this, maybe "variant" is not the term I would use. To me it seems that the better term for this is "error". To me "variant" seems intentional, if this is the case, "error" seems the better term. I am in no way an expert, so I am likely wrong about this. What do you all think?

Biggest CBCS Submission Yet drchaos Jump to first page38Jump to last page 2 monthsdrchaos (27359): My plan has generally been to work from the top down and the bigger books will pay for everything else. The lesser books do pile up so I am starting to get that figured out but to say I have a plan might be a bit strong.

CBCS imaging for all books? uncannyjames 9 3 monthsNuffsaid111 (18453): 100% I waffle from Mickey Mouse company to pure Dog Manure. Depends on my level of ire towards them on that particular day. They'd be out of business in any other business environment with real competition
Mail Call Rinova 6 3 monthsmakahuka (3130): Looks very sharp, digging the books and labels.
Any one like bad idea comics Deceptionking420 19 4 monthsDeceptionking420 (38): So the last comic book I got was the destroyer. Lewis LaRosa did the cover. Now he is doing megalith he is a killer on the are he also did the transformers new #1 b cover with the deceptions. Well, anyway, that comic book is okay. But I could not pass the gay love story in it. Other than that, the art look good. And that's the first time they had some hardcore s*** like that. I think this is ridiculous whenever it's put in comics
CBCS sticker? GothamBridge 11 4 monthschester15 (1842): I didn't look for the listing, but the price, if low enough, could be a determining factor, risk/reward thing. If legit, good price, no headache. If it seems sketchy, send it back, mild headache.

Stolen Collection DavidsObjects 29 4 monthsDavidsObjects (36): I appreciate everyone's comments on insurance. It was something I always wanted, always knew I needed, and even tried a few times to research and purchase, but never pulled the trigger on. The policies were too annoying to read through and compare. I'd set aside the weekend after I moved everything into storage as when I would officially purchase it. If only they'd waited a few more days to ransack the place. Gahh.. so frustratinmg :(

How do I perform a split transaction on an invoice? Can I call CBCS? Wond3rWom4n 7 6 monthsIronMan (6114): CBCS does not list a customer service phone number. However, the email response time is quick. My last email got an answer just a few hours later. Usually it's just one or two days. As other's have mentioned, calling the bank first is probably the fast and simple solution.

International Customs Delay Kbskomics 3 9 monthsKbskomics (3): I did send them an email yesterday as soon as I was aware of the situation. Presumably because of the weekend I should expect a reply early next week. I don't even know what most of those abbreviations are, only familiar with VAT. Based on previous submissions, they include a note to customs that says that they are returning the books to their original owner, but on their way to the US I can only mark them as "temporary export" /...

Diel’s Annual SDCC thread (wall pics!) dielinfinite 28 9 monthsdielinfinite (26345): Last day of the convention! Didn’t do too much today but still fun! I started by picking up a commission I requested on Friday. No one famous but for $21, I am happy with it! I then stopped by a CBCS to submit my books. I had been told that they would have a signing including Frank Miller today but they ended up doing it on Saturday so there were a few books I didn’t include. After that, I wanted to...
Value Estimate on Darwyn Cooke Signed Book MurrayC 4 9 monthsHooperSchaefer (51): I think ComicHoarder gave some good advice & numbers. I would piggyback that Cooke signed books currently have a limited market. He’s one of my favorites—and you’re right, there won’t be any more signed copies—so I don’t get it, but it is what it is. However, you do have three quintessential Cooke floppies where he’s responsible for cover & interior art (with “Batman: Ego” probably being the title that would round out...

Sending CGC to CBCS SpiderStrange99 19 9 monthsInstant_Subtitles (1323): @SpiderStrange99 Two questions, both answered. - Is it for your long-term/permanent collection? If yes, then do it if you like how CBCS slabs their comics. There are risks, and there are no guarantees that you will see a grade bump. But in the end, it is more about your collection than how others collect. If no, see my response below. - Is this for a profit flip or a trade? If yes, then I say the risk outweighs the reward. You are better...

Magazine slab introductory pricing cesidio 2 10 monthsMRmintastic (225): I am not certain, though it seems the current price of $25 for modern mags should be here for awhile. CGC also has the same price for their modern magazine grading, so CBCS would be shooting themselves in the foot if they raised the price in this current market.
PGX converts to CBCS ? Buzbe Jump to first page33Jump to last page 10 monthsDrWatson (48718): When I first read the thread title, I thought PGX had found religion.
SI for grade…what does it mean? PressMeComics 9 10 monthsdielinfinite (26345): I believe it is “SL” for Slab-Only When CBCS changed their tier system they made a lot of changes without actually describing what they are for. One of these is “Authentic Signature” which is now selectable as a grading tier OR as an add-don. the Add-On is what we’re used to to where the book is graded with an authentic signature on the label. if you select Authentic Signature as a tier, it is essentially Slab-Only but for ASP...

I need to figure out how… jgzachary13 6 10 monthsIronMan (6114): Quick and convenient always means less money. Slow and time consuming means more money. You have to choose. If achieving maximum value, you are going to have to sell on eBay, Facebook or find local comic book shows (books in the dollar boxes often sell well) to attend. On eBay you just put 10-20 books in a listing so it is worth listing and selling. It's very unlikely any comic book store is going to be interested in trading a key, expensive...

25% off Express Grading through 5/7 dielinfinite 9 1 yearKCBatmanFan (2434): So I'm getting ready to submit an order. Is Express grading time from the time that they open the box? Or is there something I should do to indicate on the box that it is an Express submission? Also, I haven't made a submission in a couple of years. Am I the only one that didn't realize I was having my books FedEx'd back completely uninsured for years? Looks like there is a separate option for insurance now.

Monthly (Comic) Book Club - April - Jack Kirby’s New Gods dielinfinite 28 1 yearxkonk (17583): New Gods #6 to finish the story. It seemingly picks up pretty immediately, except Orion is already on Apokalips with his fancy equipment again. Obviously other things have been happening though, as the planet is full of machines that Darkseid wanted built, and we see characters that weren't introduced in the original series. And Lightray shows up; apparently his beating from Kalibak wasn't fatal. But we also get the old favorites back, as...

I only have 2 books for sig verification, a Spider Man 1 signed by McFarlane with his Spiders Web store stamp on the BC and the IG 1. Shipping and insurance to CBCS for those 2 books would cost me about the same as what I’d save on those 2 books. There’s nothing time sensitive WRT either of those books; no movies coming out etc. I will sub them at Baltimore in October, it’ll cut out the risk of shipping...

USPS Media Mail? FoxBe 22 1 yearDrogio (7704): Priority just gets there faster and has insurance (which is a joke for those who’ve tried to claim). I’ve yet to see packages “handled” differently. I’ve had more damages from mailing items priority than media mail/first class combined. But usually medial mail/first class items are small/less than 1lbs too.

Also you can use other sites that sell comics regularly and probably have more reliable values than Ebay. clickable text clickable text clickable text

Although the year isn’t there, you know when that book was on the shelf. Wonder if that took it down 0.5 or so. Maybe graders approach this differently now. I have 9.8s with dates on them…but they are stamps, not ink.

Does CBCS's signature verification count with sketch covers? SoulReaverDan 8 1 yearPolarisNuclearSS2020 (1102): No sketches can be verified, at all. To be credited on the CBCS label by the individual who drew the sketch, the sketch & signing must be done in the presence of a CBCS authorized ignature witness.
Is it still worth it stanley_1883 18 1 yearJoosh (4018): “Is it worth it?” Is a question only you can answer. For me, the higher grading costs and softening market means fewer books are worth it. That said, the lacking customer service and long turnaround times are my biggest hurdle nowadays.

If you're sending a bunch of 9.8s maybe nothing shows up in the pictures, but if one comes back 9.8 and another 9.2 I think chances are good you can find the bend or spine ticks or whatever that cause the difference.

The statuses are per tier so if one tier is in grading those books are in the grading stage and another tier is still “Received” then yes they are still waiting.

Distributor ink overspray confusion leelewis17 19 2 yearsEbayMafia (36660): Having been caught in the same situation, I was very understanding and supportive initially. But in my company we quickly adjusted our communication to customers.

We did everything in our power to come as close as possible to the estimates we had given customers.

Quandary - What would you do? Scifinator Jump to first page41Jump to last page 2 yearsmulti007 (3851): I’d like to use the Walking Dead #1 pricing. As the popularity of the show skyrocketed, so did the price of that book. But as the show dropped in ratings (significantly I might add) the books prices dropped. I say SS popularity will continue to increase as the character has more exposure.

Any Witness/Facilitators for Fan Expo Chicago or NYCC? dielinfinite 10 2 yearsdielinfinite (26345): You can submit on-site if CBCS is at the show but on-site grading is only done very rarely. If CBCS is at the show they can provide an AW for free so you can get the book signed in front of a witness. I was looking for a facilitator because I am not attending the show and would need someone to handle my books for me. Yes, you should be able to submit witnessed signature books via the express tiers.

MCS Weekly Auction by CBCS Forum Members ending 6/20 Scifinator 22 2 yearsEbayMafia (36660): My only big disappointment in the auction was the Turtles #4 9.0 selling for $112. At that price I would have bid on it myself if I could. Everything else seemed to be with 15-20% or so of recent sales prices, which is what I've come to expect from MCS auctions.
Type o or does this mean something? Kasperb991 Jump to first page34Jump to last page 2 yearschester15 (1842): "my bosses wife" Now we have to wonder again here in this post....did Auto-Correct insert "bosses" for the correct word, boss's? Or was that just a legitimate error? And it could be spelled boss'. From - Boss’s and Boss’ are both acceptable as the singular possessive form of Boss. But in any case, it is not bosses.

What grade would this fetch? Cosmic_Surfer 17 2 yearsByrdibyrd (24736): The book may not necessarily be trimmed. Try looking at the edge in question edge-on, as in looking straight at the cut edge. Is that edge where it's cut lighter than the rest of the paper? That's a sure sign that the edge has been exposed to the elements for a shorter period of time than the rest of the book, and the book has been trimmed. That's a lot of wear on the edge in that 3rd photo. I imagine that if it were trimmed it might show less....
CBCS Signature Event turnaround Brockstar84 6 2 yearsNuffsaid111 (18453): If you went the Express route and put out $40 + insurance; then probably quickly once done with the signing event.

But I don't think that has anything to do with the look of the label. And as long as the selling value is not equalized, no label will draw those folks over.
Silver surfer 1,3 or 4 Cosmic_Surfer 19 2 yearsJoosh (4018): I’m agreeing with the pack: SS1 is the best of the run for investment. I had SS3 and sold it last year whilst it was still hot. My rule of thumb is never invest in a villain long term. their popularity is fickle; sell when it’s salable.

waitin for grades tipper 6 2 yearsxkonk (17583): Back in ye olde grading days they would make grades available as soon as books were graded. And this may shock you, but people would call and argue the grade and insist that they hold on to the book and regrade it. This was probably unpleasant for customer service, and they would have to pull graders out of grading if someone had to provide some first-hand experience in an answer, so it's not great for actually grading books. So they changed...

How can you tell if a slab is a fake/scam or not? JMSComics 5 2 yearsJoosh (4018): For someone who hasn’t had the experience of holding various versions of CGC and CBCS slabs it can be difficult to know what’s normal and what’s a red flag. Generally it’s best to look for signs of tampering, both of the hard case and especially cut lines in the inner well.

Plenty of those same people have suggestions for how things could be better, but the number of new(er) customers winging complaints into the forum is larger, or at least louder. As to this particular problem, I doubt they're going back to old orders and...

What’s a signature worth? stanley_1883 6 2 yearscyrano0521 (1303): Depends entirely on cost to get signed. I don’t include cost of witness or verification, that’s cost of doing business, just like getting a book slabbed.

CBCS grading damaged books Randomdoge 7 2 yearsHulkSmash (9513): Without damage to the package They have no way of knowing if damages are done enroute to them or were pre existing. People submit books in varying conditions including impact damages. these posts make it seem like CBCS is at fault when all they did was provide the service that was paid for when proper insurance should’ve been purchased by the sender to hold the carrier accountable for damages. If you have $500 worth of comics you should...

There's no way I'm submitting more until I get back my 2 submissions and this crazy TAT has become reasonable. I know it wouldn't stop people really bent on submitting 100s of comics at once, but maybe placing a temporary max # of books at one time per account would deter a lot of it until the backlog is under control....

You can still give them an order at the booth that they'll take as a regular submission, though. If you choose pickup, that means you'll schedule a time to go to their office in Dallas to pick up your order.

First Time Grading Steph10 11 2 yearsHulkSmash (9513): I sent my first books via my LCS and it took forever (when TATs were not crazy). They do bulk shipments once a week(I believe) and What I did not realize is that I was waiting for any pressing and VSP subs to get mine back. Oh and the LCS “lost” my info; I was lucky I called the day after they received them and still fresh on the mind.

Since the majority of the complaints that pop up on this board is regarding the status of their customer's orders, they should make it a practice to update their customer's dashboard when they receive the orders.

Once the books are screened, books that meet the minimum threshold you set move on to full grading...

For modern, I feel someone will have a raw copy given all the online stores out there. If I was to buy an older, bronze, silver etc. It would depend on the book and all. An Xmen #1, if I happen to have the $$$ at the time, I would go low grade, 1.0 but it would all depend upon the mood, the cover itself since that is what would be displayed mostly, and the timing of everything.

To Press or Not To Press that is the question Rafel 15 3 yearsPuckster (2957): After I sent in my first batch of books about a year ago, my biggest regret was not pressing. Like your wife said, I'm going to end up sending them back at some point to be pressed. When in doubt, press screen.

If you send in a Red Label to be pressed, do you pay again for Sig Verify? Comix_Toronto 4 3 yearsGAC (67967): @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.

A little history / update Scifinator 14 3 yearsJabberwookie (5694): @Scifinator Nice! No judgement here on keeping more. The reason I asked is I’m trying to figure out my own keep vs sale ratio, and of course reinvestment into silver age books. I’m always up for learning from people with more experience than I have.

Will the real 6.0 please stand up. CBCS vs cgc Scifinator Jump to first page59Jump to last page 3 yearsScifinator (14840): For the most part, I buy the CBCS label as I feel more confident that the grade is accurate. I only buy cgc if it is way underpriced or I just can't get it in CBCS. And even then, I am more apt to buy raw, read, enjoy (assuming I am not upgrading a previously read and slabbed comic), and submit to CBCS.

8 CBCS Graded Comics w/$1 Starting bids Scifinator 13 3 yearsScifinator (14840): @poka - Congrats and thank you. FYI, i was the original owner of that comic since publication. It was purchased through a local comic shop on St. College Blvd. in Anaheim California. It closed not to long after due to a combo of rent increase along with new competition created by Mile High comics opening there SuperStore a couple of miles away also in Anaheim. That MHC would also close a couple of years later due to the comics crash. ...
wondering gunner 2 3 yearsdielinfinite (26345): One thing to realize is that CBCS Canada isn’t just a Canadian address to send your submissions. CBCS Canada operates under a different tier structure and offers a more restrictive set of services. So options there are not 1:1 with submitting directly. As for why, I would imagine it involves the logistics of gathering the books in Canada and shipping them en masse to the Texas office and back, which already has longer turn-around times...

What goes on the label for graded comics? Slesko 2 3 yearsdielinfinite (26345): That would be something you would want to email CBCS customer service about. One thing it could be is that the label notes reflect the status of the character at the time when copies were first being graded, as not every single first appearance is noted for supporting and minor characters, prior to the character’s changes in the 2000’s and the label botes just haven’t been revisited. I have had situations where I’ve had a book graded...

Why I became slab obsessed... Scifinator 13 4 yearsScifinator (14840): Which is one of the additional reasons I chose to use CBCS for the certification of all of my comics. Sure, I could have had some false higher grades for the portion of my collection that I was selling off, but I did not want to reward and perpetuate degradation and mediocrity. And, in the meantime, I am very confident in the grades of my permanent collection.

Impressively priced CBCS Batman 1 doog Jump to first page31Jump to last page 4 yearsMatterEaterLad (2462): I don't think they were requesting that he grade their books.

It was after the lawsuit was filed that he officially moved from President of CCS to Head Grader at CGC, but in reality, they're all in the same building, so who knows where the line is drawn.

Signed/Numbered Comic - Verification? Patrickjones2549 12 4 yearsSiggy (25333): It was a sincere question, but I understand it comes off as shit-stirring. Looking at the labels again, I see "(#2833/10000)" is the same as CGC saying, "#2833/10000 Written On Cover", just not as specific at detaching it from the verified sig, but probably enough to CYA.

Slab problem Randomdoge 10 4 yearsInstant_Subtitles (1323): @Randomdoge My experience with CBCS slabs, with me cracking one open because of reasons, is that you (and others) have nothing to worry about. The inner well they use is pretty tough to the point that dropping it did not put the comic at risk. As for having it re-cased (or "re-slabbed") you will find said option here. Their "CBCS Re-folder" option is $10 and is 2-3 weeks. (Godspeed if you also need to have any comics...

New here; question about Marvel stamps. EvolutionOfEvil 20 4 yearsEvolutionOfEvil (33): Thanks guys. I was more asking because I’ve been watching a few different comics on different auction places and some of them have been CBCS as of late. I’ve been a collector for a bit now and probably have around 30 CGC verified comics but they grade differently in some cases (restored comics for example). I’m just starting to look at CBCS and just wanted an idea of where they stood on the policy of no stamps before I bid on something...

New Pressing Invoice Policy? dielinfinite 7 4 yearsKatKomics (28475): I tend to only include 3 or 4 books that I don't think need pressing but give them the press screen service.

They no longer count some con days off. @Gaard No. This is for the Modern, Expanded and Consumer tiers.

Young Avengers #6 jpoffenberger103 3 5 yearsDrogio (7704): They don’t always identify the first appearance of any character, especially if they are not a significant character. What I believe you can do is request/suggest a first appearance be added to your label with your submissiOn and they will consider it. If having something noted on a slab is desired to anyone I would recommend looking at similar slabs of the comic by that company to see what they include.

Graded with asterisk Exiledgl2814 16 5 yearsJesse_O (39033): I believe the reason why your book didn't get a checkmark is because a missing value stamp is a large deal with many collectors. It is not as if an interior page has a mark, stain, rip or fold, there is a piece missing. But I think the reason CBCS came up with a check mark is to have something to counter a green label. I'd rather have an honest grade with a check mark on a blue label than a fantasy grade on a green label.

Terrificon Mail Call Hcanes 12 5 yearsDrogio (7704): I’ll need to look back at my invoice...they were Batman 223 and 251, fast passed and pressed (was not aware of a “fast pass”on pressing at the time). I figured if I didn’t fast pass it I would not get them back until who knows February? And a fast pass spoiled have them back by x-mas....not the case. I see others getting their submissions with pressing back from terrificon and later and wonder what the hell did I pay for?

(Re: CGC Crossover) RyanHicks Jump to first page39Jump to last page 5 yearsTedsaid (7340): The problem isn't that it is unethical in and of itself ... the problem is the appearance and possibility of unethical behavior. I think CGC has proven that they can be unethical on the margins. And I definitely believe they don't have any controls to watch for unconscious bias. They make lots of money through unconscious bias. For example, I've noticed a small but distinct difference between grades that were pressed by CCS and not pressed...

Pre Sreening cosanostra937 4 5 yearsCatmanAmerica (30017): Pre-screening is definitely a service available at CBCS, but I don't think restoration removal is currently one of the services offered. I'm making that assumption based on the books sent with Steve Borock for grading and pre-screening at last month's OAFcon, two came back with discovered restoration, having been graded previously by CGC as a universal grade!

Shipping prices TST 7 5 yearsesaravo (91984): CBCS’s shipping fees are based on the number of books first, then the total value of the comics. So the cheapest way to ship (the per comic cost) is in multiples of five (5 books, 10, 15, etc.). That way, as the number of books increases, the per book shipping cost decreases.

First is this sketch cover. Billy did this for me back in 2014, long before this Black Book issue.

He’d always liked Harley as a character and being incredibly interested in WWII, was a little...

Since I have third party insurance I have asked CBCS not to declare any value so I can avoid this charge in the future/ This amount is above and beyond the other shipping charges from Fedex.

What value do you consider too low to slab? kutworksinc 27 6 yearsCatmanAmerica (30017): It depends on the relative scarcity, estimated value and whether the collector is contemplating the eventual sale of books through a professional auction house. The expense of 3rd party grading and encapsulation has to be weighed against return on investment. IMO, with rare exception, collectors should reserve third party grading for books that are 5.0 and above (for GA & SA), 7.0 or higher for books of more recent vintage. The exceptions...

CBCS slabbing skill doog 18 6 yearsCopperAgeKids (3717): I'd have it pressed. I wouldn't reholder the book, as pressing will improve the structural integrity of the book. But for those who dislike pressed books, reholdering the book in a slab with a larger inner well is as best as it can be. A book like that, in a mylite2 & full back will have the same stress on the spine as it would, in its' current slab. Cracking it out will not change anything.

That is how FedEx intercepts and reroutes shipments. For practical reasons (man power), that is how FedEx operates. I am not making light of these issues. But I am sure that if you were dealing with CGC and not CBCS, all other things being equal,your experience would not have been the slightest bit different.

OK WHO'S FAULT IS IT ONLINE_209 16 7 yearsconditionfreak (11292): The machines have already taken over. Try to find someone that doesn't jump up when their phone calls to them. Try to find someone who can write a paragraph correctly without spell check or auto correct. Try your hardest to drive somewhere you have never been before, without using GPS. See how often you change the TV channels without a remote control. Go shopping in town, using a horse and buggy. You get the idea. Thank God for the...

EXCELLENT!! Zombiebigfoot 10 7 yearsharmonicaman (375): I love the Superman story in Action #249. The resolution of Superman's predicament is so ridiculous, that it stretches even the wackiness of the DC world at the time. Of course it involves Jimmy Olsen's help.

How does cracking a slab process work Ny85 5 7 yearsIronMan (6114): In auto racing there is an old saying. "Speed costs money. How fast can you afford to go?" It could cost as little as $23 and take several months. Or it could cost $8 more and take six weeks. Or you could spring for two day modern for $40 and have it back before you know it. All of these prices are grading only. Return shipping to you will add another $25 or so.

Con to Con Witnessed Signatures comic_book_man 20 7 yearscomic_book_man (1978): Good to know! ...and that just makes sense - I could see bias/favoritism for grading companies playing a negative role if that were not the case.
Trouble making a trade with a CBCS Graded book Johnnyonthespot Jump to first page46Jump to last page 7 yearsCopperAgeKids (3717): @Johnnyonthespot I don't have an ASM 101, I did buy a collection of about 40 issues of ASM, in the low 100's to around 270. Most are in the 9.2 range and only 10 or so exceed #200.I also have a small amount of SA thru copper ASM books on eBay and more in my convention boxes. The only 2 books I am pulling from that collection is the #194 and #265. The collection, not including the #194 and #265, is probably worth upwards of $600, per...

PSA: Invalid CBCS ID Numbers DarthLego 7 7 yearsDarthLego (20518): I found two in my stash of eBay buys, Jake got them both fixed. Who are these people getting books graded and not checking their dashboard notes to even notice their invoices not getting closed? Us "normal" people are hitting F5 until the grades pop up after shipping.

Scooby Doo bennyb86 20 7 yearsX51 (14744): But this one has Ivan Brunetti art and it's safe for kids to see. That's a rarity.
Grading Self Published Comic Books kaptainmyke 1 7 yearskaptainmyke (27076): Will CBCS still grade self published fan comics or are they required to have the ART label? Bee Jay Hawn and I co-submitted this commission peice I had her do on a blank sketch variant to her self published TMNT fan comic. I'd prefer a grading instead of a ART label. Thank you ...

Charging Hanknova22 3 7 yearsMef (1898): I will say that it took billing a couple of extra days do get mine through. BUT Mine was a con submission and I wanted orders combined, so if yours was a con sub too this could be the issue. If you sub at a con, they are automatically marked as 'received' but they don't charge you til they get them shipped back to the office as far as my experience has been.
Nerdy Question for CBCS Bluespeyer 6 7 yearsJLS_Comics (5463): Hmmm yeah it should be "Sub-Mariner Comics" Perhaps the confusion is in that 3 stories in the issue are entitled "Sub-Mariner"

CBCS vs CGC Regrade Results 1st Wave mattness Jump to first page51Jump to last page 7 yearsjrs (1864): Also keep in mind the vintage of a book. I think it is quite possible for a 9.8 modern to stay the same but more likely for a high grade silver age book to drop. The chances of there being defects on a silver book are likely greater given age.
CBCS Turnaround 7/3/2017 SteveRicketts 27 7 yearsKatKomics (28475): Mine we submitted for signature verification, pressing etc in mid March - still at received! - maybe by christmas ??
