CBCS VSP Submission Haul antoniofett 3 29 daysantoniofett (2126): @Wade_Story Thanks for the info and feedback! I think I see the issue now. Cully did the Variant I believe. I'll still enjoy it!
CBCS 10th Anniversary Celebration Auction @ MCS ending Mon 17th - Fri 21st! Scifinator Jump to first page149Jump to last page 1 monthJames42 (4029): I ended up with a couple books for essentially the slab cost. One was a 9.6 copy of Star Wars 31, which was the first Star Wars comic I ever got (way back in the mists of time). Still have my first one, but it will be nice to have a displayable copy. Pre-rivets label, too.
New Slabs for Dad’s Collection dielinfinite 1 1 monthdielinfinite (26607): My dad had recently bought some Frank Miller signed comics from ComicSketchArt’s ebay store on my recommendation. CSA is fairly well-known so I wasn’t too worried about the authenticity but I’m still glad they all came back verified and the 9.8s are a nice bonus
Got some beautiful slabs back Wond3rWom4n 5 2 monthsmattness (1514): That’s Sabine Rich. She’s also the colorist on the J. Scott Campbell WW #750 books.[/quote] Thank you so much!
Re-Certifying (Re-Grading) Comics - Strikeouts, On Base, and Home Runs. Scifinator 13 2 monthsDoorCntyComicColl (114): Something I wanted to explain to the younger collectors that love to slab books as opposed to keeping them raw. I was buying books as a kid back in the late 70's and 80's. This is a copy of Ka-Zar the Savage #1 from 1981 that Brent Anderson signed at a Chicago Con back in 1981 when I bought it right when it came out. I am thinking about getting it slabbed by CBCS for signature authentication though the book does have some color breaking spine...
CBCS Crooks Patrickjones2549 Jump to first page78Jump to last page 2 monthssoutherncross (30321):
PGX to CBCS signed StanPinkerton 14 2 monthsProdigalSon (211): I've actually had some luck with PGX.. I've cracked several for signings, and had my fair share retain the same grade, a few higher, and sadly, some lower. But switching PGX over to CBCS has been more successful for me than switching CGC over to CBCS. I've had some CGC's drop a full 2 points in grade while switching over.
Comic Link NO RESERVE Auctions (ending 3/29 - 4/08/2024) JazzyJeffie 4 3 monthsJazzyJeffie (418): Thanks to everyone who bid, hope you won! Considering to send some more. It takes awhile for the sales to be remitted, but it's worth the wait I guess.
Finding out the results of grading Nickrob1234 6 3 monthsNickrob1234 (7): This coment wins!
Is Frank Miller Signature/Remaque/Head Sketch/Full Figure Sketch worth it? paulwhng Jump to first page33Jump to last page 4 monthsmulti007 (4063): You are correct. I remember reading an article where he was at a local comic bookstore last year and he signed one free book Per person.
Mail Call - Signed comics sportshort 20 5 monthssportshort (16140): 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?
No Encapsulation if Verification Fails option? press 24 5 monthssportshort (16140): Agreed!
Sendin in slabbed books Zorro 9 5 monthsmakahuka (3133): Welcome!
Biggest CBCS Submission Yet drchaos Jump to first page38Jump to last page 6 monthsdrchaos (27898): 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.
WANT TO BUY - Chadwick Boseman signed books twoseezy 2 6 monthsOGJackster (49635): The only ones I have seen are on eBay for $25-$50,000.
Authorized Witness GothamBridge 8 6 monthsTomasaCorwin (4): I am also still trying it.
Mail Call Rinova 6 7 monthsmakahuka (3133): Looks very sharp, digging the books and labels.
Pre-screen and signature authentication DoorCntyComicColl 6 7 monthsDoorCntyComicColl (114): Appreciate that.. glad to be on.. Finding a boatload of info so its helps since I've been out of the comic book game since the early 80s.
Mail call/New Labels/and a question. Zombie_Head 10 8 monthsdielinfinite (26607): @Zombie_Head Yup, 205/1000
How do I perform a split transaction on an invoice? Can I call CBCS? Wond3rWom4n 7 9 monthsIronMan (6210): 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.
VSP and signature differences over time; any experiences? James42 11 9 monthsmakahuka (3133): 🤣🤣🤣
For Sale: Napoleon Dynamite #1 SIGNED By Jon Heder CBCS 9.8 00slim 20 10 months00slim (17791): Bump?
Can signed comics be pressed safely? Firegoof19 6 10 monthsmakahuka (3133): Good advice on paint markers.
Question about submitting unwitnessed sketch covers Firegoof19 9 11 monthsFiregoof19 (360): As requested. Gene Simmons Zombie
Marvelmania MrNotSoNice 17 1 yearMrNotSoNice (3433): Turns out there is another signed copy (Kirby, I presume). Oh well, at least my 9.4 is the highest-graded signed copy (so far.)
Authentication and fees GothamBridge 8 1 yearSigur_Ros (4191): They would have to assess each of them separately, of course, but yea I agree $150 is a lot for 5 of the same. Since they have to do the research/comparisons for the same sig 5 times a discount makes sense. 5 different sigs would take more time and effort. Regardless, I agree with the single trial book option. If it doesn't pass, they charge an extra $8.00 rejection fee that they don't tell you about. You'll be out $30 + $8 x 5 books.
Mail Call...interesting but small MrNotSoNice 4 1 yearMrNotSoNice (3433): Not super high-grade, but a nice Mephisto cover just the same. Available for trade.
Value Estimate on Darwyn Cooke Signed Book MurrayC 4 1 yearHooperSchaefer (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...
Small but mighty Mail Call! dielinfinite 7 1 yeardielinfinite (26607): @makahuka lol HAVE. He’s still around. He’s out of the country a lot so I manage his collection stateside
Redo signature verification? donho 15 1 yearEbayMafia (37171): I'm not sure, I only ever sent one book back, it was the first year they opened. But it seems that without some kind of formal process, misunderstandings like this are bound to happen. The guy at the convention may be doing his best to provide good customer service, but if that's not his role, he misses a step in the process because he doesn't realize it's not as cut and dried as he thinks it would be.
Superman vrs Spider-Man treasury edition signed Zevgoli 11 1 yearZevgoli (360): Thanks to a very helpful Cynthia V at customer service I’m submitting the book to CBCS for a raw grade and signature verification of Stan Lee and Neal Adams. I’m also getting the book pressed thanks to Steve’s acknowledgment that it can be pressed. I will post the result when I get the book back. Cheers, Zevgoli
Surfing with the Alien - Run Completed Scifinator Jump to first page50Jump to last page 1 yearScifinator (15666): Looks like the early favorite is Silver Surfer 4 Truth be told, my choices are: ***1st place - Silver Surfer 4 **2nd place - Fantastic Four 50 *3rd place - Silver Surfer 1
ASP VS VSP, Proof Materials? Blaidd 5 1 yearZombie_Head (3493): @Blaidd just because you have all that proof doesn’t mean it will pass take it from me. Just FYI. So don’t get upset about it if it doesn’t. I would still encapsulate it if you got it yourself, that’s what I did.
Where's My Comics Or Grades? rapturestar 6 1 yearSigur_Ros (4191): Thought they said all books in the system were going to be returned by May 1st ? They had some of mine almost that long but I got them back early May. Stay on them. Hopefully they don't just stop replying, as happened with me.
Miracleman #1 "Gold Variant" Club BartAllen 28 1 yearBartAllen (49): My second Miracleman Eclipse badge:
Facilitator for Heroes Con Pittboss 3 1 yearpower_struggle55 (6649): im just going to go their table for 4 comic grading and one rehold
What would you rate this Infinity Gauntlet sign by GP with a COA and stampe BigLouComicGuru 9 1 yearTravis (510): I think they were generous giving it a 8.5
Update on the astonishing tales 25 signatures. Zombie_Head 8 1 yearSiggy (25525): I was expecting to see 25 signatures on an Astonishing Tales comic :oops: This makes more sense. Very cool! They look great on the inside.
MAIL CALL - VERIFIED ONLY! sportshort 18 1 yearfigment (18839):
What signatures are you getting verified? MurrayC 20 1 yearHulkSmash (9979): I missed the window but I have Larry Hama Peter David Scott Koblish Greg Pak To send in eventually
VSP: $10 off 4/19-5/3 dielinfinite Jump to first page107Jump to last page 1 yearKatKomics (29123): pretty sure it's "ship" by the 10th not arrive at CBCS by the 10th Really hope so because my estimated delivery date is the 10th!! hope there are no delays!
Promo Question Retired_11B 13 1 yearRetired_11B (812): I actually stopped collecting in 2004, and my boxes were placed in the attic and forgotten until recently. My neighbor is a collector and got me back into it. So currently I am on the look out for variant covers, art work covers, and signatures. I just got the email that my books that I turned in at Galaxy Con here in Richmond were getting ready to ship. These will be my first with CBCS. I do have some getting ready with a presser to head...
Latest CBCS Submission drchaos Jump to first page51Jump to last page 1 yeardrchaos (27898): Mission accomplished! With two CBCS guys pitching in it only took us just over three hours to get everything done.
Superman vs The Amazing Spider-man Geekme 13 1 yeardpiercy (4787): I did a video when I picked up my Superman/Ali book a few months ago. Really great book.
Looking for THIS X-Men 94 - Reward for hooking me up! DrBalls 8 1 yearBatman79 (1227): Good luck DrBalls
Venom #3 CBCS 9.8 - Kirkham Variant Cover B Signed 3 times! fakadar 2 1 yearfakadar (12): 1 day left
Signature re-verification needed if i send book in for pressing? FoxBe 5 1 yearByrdibyrd (24736): You and me both!! Welcome to the forum!! :D
My February 2022 submission of 694 books has been completed drchaos 28 1 yearNellYXL (6): Yes, I also thought about printing my book, but so far I am confused by the difficulties.
Making decisions -Tiers -Express Processing -Grading Press Screen JC600 5 1 yearJC600 (101): @Nuffsaid111 Yes, that was my thought. If they do pass VSP then I will be glad to know that I have a couple pieces of Jack's history that he actually had his hands on. I appreciate your opinion!
For Sale: Booster Gold #1 DOUBLE SIGNED CBCS 9.4 00slim 7 1 year00slim (17791): Bump?
What If.. I don’t know the date of the signature M1ster_E 8 1 yearByrdibyrd (24736): If the signature is already on the book, you need to ask for a VERIFIED signature and not an authentic one. 'Authentic' is for a witnessed signature and you need the date it was witnessed. For verified you don't need a date. If you're seeing a request for a date, you need to cancel and ask for the other type of signature.
Signature Verification - Jack Kirby JC600 18 1 yearDavethebrave (16337): Forum customer service is great!
Looking for a sample of Karen Berger's signature Element_Lad 10 1 yearElement_Lad (2389): So the signature belongs to Greg LaRocque. No relation to the book but does to Legion.
Notice of when CBCS is not open? FoxBe 9 1 yearFoxBe (17): glad you got your books! if it was just over the turnaround time, may be worth checking if fell within a closure or if you are due back some money/credit for the grading fees. That’s what “guarantees” are for =)
Order says SHIPPED, but no movement… WndrWmn74 6 1 yearmulti007 (4063): Shipping from Texas has been delayed for about 2 weeks due to the ice storms. My Steve Rickets sketch cover said "shipped" starting on Jan 25. But fedex JUST picked it up yesterday from cbcs. Even My Comic Shop has been shut down for about 2 weeks now. (I missed out on a private signing because they didnt ship the order in time before the deadline). It is what it is...
authentication services donho Jump to first page39Jump to last page 2 yearsNuffsaid111 (19149): How about "CGC is incompetent". Now THAT would be cool!
And yet THIS is why I bought comics… WndrWmn74 Jump to first page37Jump to last page 2 yearsEddieTheComicGuy (927): Sending prayers and positive thoughts your way!!! STAY STRONG!!!
All 8 books mislabeled no response please help Contact630 Jump to first page71Jump to last page 2 yearsgrapeape (491): Outrageous. They are going to fail as a business if they are unwilling to fix communication with their customers. Pure dumpster juice in the sweltering heat is how I'd rate their customer service.
Mail call, Merry Christmas! MrNotSoNice 6 2 yearsByrdibyrd (24736): You're correct. Also, pressing on the diaphragm was supposed to stimulate breathing, but it was rarely successful. CPR and mouth-to-mouth may not save everyone (not by a long shot), but it was a huge improvement on this approach.
Regrading Question... SpikeSoleil 7 2 yearsSpikeSoleil (6): Okay, thanks everyone! I haven't received the books yet - still in shipment - but I will definitely consider regrading with press screening for some of them.
CBCS Secret Wars #8 dual singed slab kadargo27 10 2 yearsNuffsaid111 (19149): I caught that too. very astute!
Does CBCS's signature verification count with sketch covers? SoulReaverDan 8 2 yearsPolarisNuclearSS2020 (1124): 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.
Music City Comicon 10/28/22 Submission how to track? actionnerdtoys 18 2 yearsactionnerdtoys (15): Thanks for the clarification
Back from CBCS pretty happy kadargo27 6 2 yearsByrdibyrd (24736): @power_struggle55 I'd consider the Beckett Authentication if you're concerned about the signatures not being authenticated. I can't think of any time I've heard of signatures from those creators being rejected, though. It's usually the older crowd like Jack Kirby & Stan Lee who get rejected.
NYCC express order arrived! leelewis17 5 2 yearsBriten (1775): Love that Surfer.
FS:Kirby Signed Avenger #2 CBCS 6.5 Verified AcuMan 7 2 yearsPhantomEwan (3759): @Joosh when I spoke to the CBCS rep at Washington State Summer Con about the imaging he told me they don’t do that anymore. I wanted to do the exact same thing with mine:
Thoughts on the book I bought Zombie_Head 12 2 yearsByrdibyrd (24736): @ComicHoarder You make some good points, but you also have to do some research sometimes. This baby, for example, may not have any signatures on it (no way am I opening up that slab), but... Folks will drop $500+ for one of these because high-grade newsstand editions of this book are extremely ( Extremely) rare. We're in...
Received a sweet Halloween Mail Call today. Josh7945 4 2 yearsJosh7945 (413): Yeah! It’s from Sleepaway Camp. Signed by Angela (Felissa Rose).
Order Update - Customer Service Jprez111 7 2 yearsLotsaSequel (295): There’s a submission from September and October of lat year with zero updates but I received an email about a submission from November that has moved into grading. Several emails to cbcs have been completely ignored and Darryl Hayden on Facebook has said several times he’d look into it and then proceeded to ghost the crap out of me. At this point I’m assuming these were lost due to the gymnastics cbcs seems to be doing avoiding answering...
VSP Received Nuffsaid111 15 2 yearsByrdibyrd (24736): And there's the stumbling block. I already paid to get the book in that case and verified. Do I want to pay for that all over again... for a photo of a signature. :oops:
@esaravo shout-out and sort of Mail call Scifinator 21 2 yearsesaravo (94423): @Hcanes - Thanks for the kind words, Greg.
Key Slabs for sale Ambush_Bug 7 2 yearsAmbush_Bug (200): Just a follow up, I switched these two up to be auctions!
mail call donho 6 2 yearsBuckets (252): @donho Thank you for the info.
Multiple Signatures but only get one verified, is that possible? cakenut 12 2 yearsJames42 (4029): I recently had a book verified and graded with four signatures on it. I knew there was a risk that some of the signatures would not be verifiable, even though I had personally witnessed each one. But you need to think about why you are having the signatures verified and the book encapsulated; is it for your own collection, or for possible resale? I wanted mine graded and encapsulated either way, as it was for my own collection. I spent way more...
Signature Verification Process Fishingiron 11 2 yearsWhammykablam (344): I've not had any fail, yet, so just wait until the invoice says Grading and you'll know.
Is VSP Grading worth it? X-Men #1 1991 IowaDad81 21 2 yearsxkonk (17719): I happened to be looking at Jim Lee X-Men #1s the other day. In 9.8 they look to be going for $175-200 on eBay. Like someone else said though, I don't think yours is a 9.8. If you want it verified and graded for your personal state of mind then I would go ahead. I don't think I would pay express, myself, but I also tend to send things for pressing and that gets pricey. If you're looking to sell it then I would probably leave it as-is.
Authorized Witness for C2E2 chirock 2 2 yearsdielinfinite (26607): 2 Weeks is the minimum time before a show to send your request to
another CBCS success story! ERB_in_CLT 20 2 yearsmulti007 (4063): yea - lots can happen in that year. Interest can drop cutting the value of the book in half. If its a witness or signature verification, the artist could have passed away and the book doubles in price and you cant capitalize on the jump right away... I could die. Then my wife is getting books a year later wondering "what the heck do i do with this - off to Goodwill!" its a risk for sure. lol
5 Day Ebay auction started today! Lots of Keys & 1st Appearances! KaptainKia 9 2 yearssportshort (16140): I had the exact same problem, I closed my browser (after a dozen wasted attempts), and it works fine now.
For Sale: Spawn #1 Newsstand McFarlane Verified Signature CBCS 9.6 00slim 11 2 years00slim (17791): Spawn sold on fee-bay this evening. Less than I wanted, but he bundled 3 books, so, I gave him a deal.
Verified Signature Program Rejection Element_Lad 26 2 yearsElement_Lad (2389): Good news! Four VSPs are graded, labeled and I have FedEx tracking information!!!
Imaging SP Issue Josh7945 9 2 yearsJosh7945 (413): That makes sense. Thanks for the responses, everyone. I think I have a better idea of what’s going on now.
CBCS Verified Slabs on eBay griffmiester 1 2 yearsgriffmiester (136): Lots of autographs and remarked CBCS verified as well as some Blue CBCS and "other" slabs. Please take a look thank you clickable text
Quandary - What would you do? Scifinator Jump to first page41Jump to last page 2 yearsmulti007 (4063): 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.
Astonishing tales 25 signatures Zombie_Head 17 2 yearsEbayMafia (37171): Fair enough. Step 1 completed.
W quick question on VSP vs. ASP WndrWmn74 3 2 yearsWndrWmn74 (791): Exactly my thought. Thank you for the fast response my friend.
Featured Comics?? Josh7945 11 2 yearsHAmistoso (25086): clickable text
Membership Type Dealer SLAbLover 2 2 yearsdielinfinite (26607): First, be sure to read through this thread carefully To request to become a witness you must email your request to the Signature Series program manager, Matthew Edwards ( he will instruct you from there And no, a dealer is not automatically an authorized witness
Verified Signatures Nick_H 5 2 yearsNick_H (4): @Siggy Well I'll reach out Monday to customer service. Probably is the new norm now.
My First CBCS Submission KaptainKia 22 2 yearssborock (48457): Even if pressed, it won't raise the grade much as the real defect is the rust.
Submitting for signatures Comicskablooey 15 2 yearsComicskablooey (100): Thank you @Nuffsaid111 for the compliment and thank you@Whammykablam for the info. I did not see the option for the extra fee to speed up the process. $16.00 is not a bad investment for the extra sigs I want.
Is a Signature considered "Damage"?? KaptainKia 22 2 yearsCaffeine_Kid (1587): I think you meant blackmail, 😉
Would This be Weird? DWeeB1967 20 2 yearsHcanes (5224): Ahhhhhh did not realise this was a mail in submission.
Severe Lack of Signings Wolverine 8 2 yearsIronMan (6210): Another perspective: Given their #2 status, CBCS is probably better served attending comic cons and getting most of their signed books that way. This puts CBCS out where collectors see them and can learn about them. Make that important face to face contact. CGC can better afford to stay home and do a lot more in house signing events.
Signature search Skas 4 2 yearsSkas (1): Thank you. I was trying to get an idea of how many Jack Kirby signatures have been certified.

Slab a metal COA z24autox 8 2 yearsz24autox (55): Thank you all for the replies, I should have been more specific on the COA, was just thinking encapsulating it would help keep it from damage. It's hands down one of the nicest COA's I've come across. I'll see if encapsulating as art will fly.
Just posted some stuff on eBay... Thanks! joelzstuff 4 2 yearsjoelzstuff (90): Ending tomorrow, Thanks! -Joel

Don Heck Gene Colan VSP goodness radd76 14 3 yearsDarkseid_of_town (14297): Very kind words...I bid and won this in an auction a while was stated as coming with a Mycomicshop written note of authentication for the book, so I thought okay so they witnessed the signing..but when it came the authentication was for Roy Thomas and not the deceased, sadly, Luckily both men signed in such a unique way its fairly easy to see that they are likely real
FS: Jack Kirby Signature X-Men #2 4.0 AcuMan 10 3 yearsDrWatson (51130): It's the nouveau riche. Next they'll only want to be paid with pictures of money.

X-men #1 Kirby autograph Skaz 14 3 yearsDarkseid_of_town (14297): The simple answer is rarity. While there might be fifty copies of the newer stuff floating around signed by kirby , there might then only be 5 examples of the older more grail type books signed by him.

There are limited 200 trade dress and 100 negative print. We chose this book because it's a phenomenal story...a phenomenal true story.

If you need VSP and you can be in Chicago.... Scifinator 24 3 yearsEbayMafia (37171): Candidly, the discount are irrelevant to me when TATs are at 18 weeks and growing. They should have raised prices 8 weeks ago to prevent this. I’m at the point where I’d prefer to pay 10% more and get back to a 6 week TAT. Actually been there for a while now.

CBCS Grading policy for "Blue with notes" books Schumy2 9 3 yearsHulkSmash (9979): you could always use the verification screen to see if the sig may or may not pass. in my opinion; the book itself with or without the Stan Lee sig outweighs a bit of glue regardless of conserved, restored, or any other Designation. I have no issues with Conservation on pre bronze books. They are old. They have been deteriorating for decades and at some point someone wanted to keep it together after they read crap out of it.

I'm talking really early days. But later on, from what I understand, not a chance. So I get quite leary when I see something signed on a comic manufactured after the early - mid 70's.

I do not want to sell, as I dont have a next best alternative and see no need (yet). I want to get it to best feasible state now and keep it. Granted no chump change (better buy GME) as I am currently residing outside the US. The services add cost and nerves - currently an ASM1 in routing (bless insurance). On the other side I purchased the book for ‚chump change‚ just looking at today‘s value.

If you send in a Red Label to be pressed, do you pay again for Sig Verify? Comix_Toronto 4 3 yearsGAC (71381): @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.

Signature placement russ3llk Jump to first page32Jump to last page 4 yearsHarrisonMade (167): @Studley_Dudley I agree with you about my book. A LOT is going on there. The original plan was to use a different book that was a blank that I had paid to have a commission done on. Sadly however, the artist decided to not work on it until the middle of the con instead of having it ready to pick up at the beginning of the con. So I made a plan b, still happy with the book and it will never leave my personal collection.

noob question I couldn't find the answer to about VSP Rezolution 4 4 yearsEbayMafia (37171): I know the feeling, I spent about 5 weeks hoping that "in grading" meant the signature had passed verification. It turned out in that case it did, and I think it probably does in general. Wait until you get the grade before you throw up though.

Charges for verifying signature (Reject / Grade Screening / Other)? waynemel 9 4 yearsEbayMafia (37171): @waynemel Maybe you are talking about two different books, but I can't imagine using Grade Screen in combination with Signature Verification. If the signature verifies, get it slabbed. If it does not verify, don't get it slabbed. I can't think of any other choice that would make sense.

How do you submit original art? TheBatPastor 8 4 yearsdielinfinite (26607): @TheBatPastor The only thing, and this is covered in the link, is that when you select the Slab-Only tier and add the VSP signature it won’t adjust the price automatically so the form will read $20 for slab-only + $25 for the verified signature but it should be adjusted by the staff when they receive the books

Submission Type Question(s) Nuffsaid111 15 4 yearsEbayMafia (37171): I have a hard time understanding why CBCS would offer Signature Verification and slabbing for less than the cost of Signature Verification alone. It's either a mistake or it's smartly strategic. I can't really imagine it's a mistake, because the Slab Only option alone should not cost more than the modern grading option. So I assume it must be intentional. If the reason for the low price to get the program going and get these Slab Only books...
Mini Mail Call dielinfinite 1 4 yearsdielinfinite (26607): Just got these two in the mail! The turnaround time on these books was insane, in the good way! Regular modern grading, signature verification, 5-days from receipt to shipping, including a weekend. I couldn't believe it at first, I had to contact customer service to see if maybe the books had failed verification and were being shipped back ungraded.

Signed/Numbered Comic - Verification? Patrickjones2549 12 4 yearsSiggy (25525): 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. I might just be picking the fly-shit from the pepper pot, but it really doesn't seem "out there" to picture some comic-book-fan-posing...

To Have Graded with VSP OR Just Frame? hitmantyler 23 5 yearshitmantyler (90): They are inside a Mylar Sleeve and the behind 98% UV Blocking Rated Museum Glass. It was a extra charge for that type of glass but always pay for it as feel it makes the books always look shine more than regular.

MAIL CALL - first ever sportshort Jump to first page54Jump to last page 5 yearsJabberwookie (5694): @sportshort I think you’re right. My son and I went about 4-5 years ago, and it was $90 for his autograph. The lines was 2-300 people. As much of a pain as it was, it was pretty cool seeing everyone getting excited when “the man” came out. For someone who read them when it wasn’t cool, it was definitely a sight to see.
Once & Future #1 graded and heading back to me danberry75 13 5 yearsDarryl_H (1704): Awesome!
Submitting signatures authenticated by Beckett ruckers 27 5 yearsdielinfinite (26607): The CBCS Grading Guide doesn’t mention stickers specifically but first mentions “very small amounts of tape,” which I would imagine to be similar, in the 7.0-5.5 range But I doubt it would be that big a hit since here’s an example of a book with the Wizard sticker on the cover earning an 8.0
Submitting VSP with a remark Infinity 4 5 yearsdielinfinite (26607): Something like: “Verified Signature: X Sketch on Cover”
Mail call from CBCS Zombie_Head 10 5 years00slim (17791): Just one theory: When Stan’s hand got tired, and he switched hands for signing, his sig got a little sloppy. In those instances, it didn’t always look quite like his sig. they may have erred on the side of caution.

Can BAS tell a real Stan Lee autograph? Zombie_Head 23 5 yearsMusicmansell78 (29): I had the same thing happen to me man. I had a Web of Spider Man #1 signed by both Louis Simonson and Stan Lee. They verified the Simonson, but not the Stan Lee signature. Why would I have a book with one legit signature and then try to fake the other? Same as you man, I had it signed in person, and this is the second book of mine with Stan Lee's signature that this has happened with (also happened on a Wolverine #4). Like you, it made me...

Getting 1 comic verified with a signature to post from UK carleato 4 5 yearsVirgincollector (494): is it modern or older? PM me
Who signed this? xkonk 19 5 yearsxkonk (17719): That second letter must be a P. Comparing mine to the first picture @comic_book_man posted, it looks like there are two lines but they overlap a lot in mine. I don't have any reason to doubt that the guy I bought it from lied (it was part of an inexpensive lot, and he didn't advertise it as signed), but it could just be different enough to be verified. Maybe I'll try again for giggles sometime when I have others to send together.
Can comics be submitted for signature verification at events? GoG 3 5 yearsesaravo (94423): @GoG - As long as CBCS is at that event. Just to let you know, they are running a special on their Verified Signature labels right now ($10 off per book).

Red Labels - My fav Nuffsaid111 18 5 yearsKinsella5 (728): When I come down off the grading fence and get some books submitted I look forward to the red label option with CBCS. Back in the 80's and 90's most of the creators I would meet would sign on the inside front page. One such book that I have is the two issue Silver Surfer series that was written by Stan Lee with artwork by Moebius, I had both creators sign them and they did so on the inside front page and I knew that when I ever had them graded I...
CBCS census Mugroantics 16 5 yearsthe420bandito (11308): Great example. I have prob 6-7 raw copies of that book. None above 4.0-5.0. I believe the Savannah copy was a 9.4. Ultra tough book in high grade.
How would these Sigs be labeled? Mountain_11B 12 5 yearsdielinfinite (26607): The downside is that signature authentication isn’t cheap. You’re looking at $25 for the first sig and $15 for each additional sig and that’s on top of regular grading and shipping fees so you’re looking at nearly $100 per book to get all the signatures authenticated. Otherwise, Comic Skins are a good alternative. They also sell clear backing boards that you can use with a mylar sleeve
Signature Verification TMoneyLove 25 5 yearsDrogio (7809): Ed, I’m not 100% sure but I would think for comics in grades less than 9.0 writing on the cover May not impact the grade significantly. So if this comic was an 8.0 without the signature and the writing only drops it to a 7.5, I would think 99.9% of those submitting this comic would take a 0.5 hit to have a blue label rather than an 8.0 green label. Just throwing that out there. Probably green vs. blue label is a case by case determination...
CBCS Dallas On-Site Saturday! Darryl_H 1 5 yearsDarryl_H (1704): Reminder, CBCS is still taking books for onsite grading at Dallas Fan Expo. This won't last long so swing by and drop off your books for onsite grading quickly.

Interesting signature service and TAT updates from CBCS IronMan 2 5 yearsBronte (37755): The authentication service looks interesting. I have a script for Harry Potter with all cast signatures. If I could get 2 or 3 random signatures semi verified to see if it's worth verifying the entire script could save a bunch of time and possibly money.
Bill Finger CBCS Verified Sig ftwjedi 17 5 yearsTimBildhauser (2239): Once a signature is verified it doesn't need to be verified again if the book is cracked out. It's essentially the same process as cracking a yellow label, it has to be done by a CBCS staff member or facilitator though in order to maintain the chain of custody.

VSP labels Gaz973 17 5 yearsdonho (665): they do the fixes fairly fast and with no cost to you but I think shipping cost to them is credited to your account. as in if it costs you 15 to send to them you get a 15 dollar credit to your account. but the relabel is no cost.
Add authenticate signature of already verified signature CBCS graded book smeninc 6 5 yearsManonfire (63): It cost me $46 to get a graded comic opened, signed, authenticated, and re-graded that is including shipping.

How long does signature verification take? fakadar 8 5 yearsNuffsaid111 (19149): Yea - maybe a week or so more for VSP has been my experience when compared to shipments without VSP.
*SIGNING OPPORTUNITY W/ JOHN ROMITA SR & LARRY LIEBER* GenuineCOA 11 6 yearsGenuineCOA (176): @KatKomics No, unfortunately. Mr. Romita is a very humble man and his own biggest critic, and though we feel he still has that magic, he does not offer sketches or remarques any longer.
SDCC Mail Call dielinfinite 7 6 yearsthe420bandito (11308): Great books. I would have never lasted the 7 month turn-around though. With any luck they get that under control and flourish.
finding out if your signatures were verified Mrpoort 15 6 yearsdielinfinite (26607): @Grune Signatures are verified using Beckett Signature Authentication, which has a large list of individuals they can verify. I don’t believe that list is entirely complete as my most recently completed CBCS order included two signatures for verification that don’t appear on that list.

Shipping WTF? drchaos 20 6 yearsdrchaos (27898): The $285 I got back was the amount Fedex charged to insure each of three boxes for up to $9,500 per box. In the past I was not charged for this. 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.

Signature placement doog 13 6 yearsDJC_II (1829): I still say they should switch the red labels to orange, making them closer to the yellows. A guy I met at a con, working for cbcs, had a book where it was a collection of old batbooks. In it, he had sigs by the respective artists on the 1st page of their work. Thought it was cool. Makes reading the book very interesting.

Authorized dealers OoklaTheMok 8 6 yearsIronMan (6210): CBCS may not see a "locate a dealer" link and database on the website as much of a priority because unlike CGC you do not need to purchase a membership or find a dealer to submit books. One can submit books directly to CBCS without being a member or locating a dealer. All said though, having such a link is probably a good idea. Local Comic Shops are still businesses. They have to make $$ to stay in business. Many, maybe most LCS...

I don't have a picture, because I wasn't thinking of selling it for "guarantees". I had it signed, because it was a cool thing to have done. I don't regret it not being VSP...and will eventually transform it myself when I can (if I am able and it doesn't sell).....but right now....that is not a priority and someone else can...

The usual turn around time was quoted as about 16 weeks and to be fair took about 18/20 weeks with which I have no problem with. One just has to be patient. It is what it is and one just has to chill and be aware that your submissions are going to be returned in about 6 months or more Apparently, they were uprooted by a hurricane from Florida to Texas and...
PSA - Dealing with CBCS AW's Jesse_O 2 6 yearsDrogio (7809): So what is happening? So these unauthorized witnesses know they are not authorized? Are they scamming or just not aware of the rules and their qualification )or in these cases disqualification)? Agree though....your comics, your responsibility to ensure they are handled properly.

I've used Trinity once for a Stan Lee sig., and J&J Collectibles once as well. There is guy in Portland who has helped me twice at Rose City even though I was doing my own witnessing at those events, I don't remember his name but he's always been super civil and hope to run in to him again in...
Rob Liefeld signature from 1991 smeninc 10 6 yearsX51 (14744): I'm thinking that the one character on the cover is in shock that the cover is drawn so poorly. What is this topic about? Don't bother telling me. It has to do with Liefeld and I'm not interested.
Verification color change? kevinlmillard Jump to first page83Jump to last page 6 yearsVisceralDreams (259): I actually like the verified sig color. An ASM300, XMEN17, or ASM50 would look great with the red label. Black with white lettering or silver foil would be out of this world awesome.
I was about to list this Todd signed Spawn 1 Newsie Raw, but . . . 00slim 9 6 yearschameleoncolors (491): I would do it. And the McFarland sig looks legit. Go for it, also love this book!
Jim Starlin Authentic Signature w/ CBCS czarnickolas 18 6 yearsczarnickolas (28): Ah - it looks like I was wrong about his being at SDCC based on this FB post from him: I misread this as he would be there, and was asking if someone could pick up one of those sets for him while he was anchored to his table. What this actually looks like is that he will definitely not be there.

How bad did i hurt this key FF 48 BeRealBro 23 6 yearsbrysb (12491): Yeah, I NEVER use resealable bags and I NEVER open a taped up bag without ALWAYS removing the tape first. I learned that lesson years ago when I ruined an old early 60's copy of Batman when the tape stuck to and ripped off part of the front cover!! HORRIFIC at the time! :(
Iron Man #55 Signature verified - Jim Starlin. iggykoopa30 18 6 yearsiggykoopa30 (261): True, true. He even took a picture of me holding he book right after he signed it. I now have that picture printed out and hanging in my man cave. The memories, indeed!

VSP and Dynamic Forces signed comics eee91 Jump to first page36Jump to last page 6 yearsNuffsaid111 (19149): I am very very happy to hear there is such stringency in the signature verification process; even if some fail that are real. It gives me peace of mind and hopefully the red label will be seen as just as desireable as the yellow label over time.
What if I have comics already signed? Ladic 5 6 yearsGotlift (4821): On the comic submission page the is a box you check for exactly that. It says Encapsulate even it verification fails
Need help with signature identification. IxDmackxI 10 6 yearsMR_SigS (11124): The "professional signature" creators use on comics and art. Probably not the same used on personal checks and CC receipts. As mentioned, the sharpie sigs are clearly speedy versions of the sig printed on the cover art.

Inscriptions and VSP czarnickolas 5 6 yearsczarnickolas (28): @CopperAgeKids You've always got the best advice. The simple market analysis here is enough to keep the book as is and redirect my grading moneys elsewhere.
Return shipping for overseas people Newbie 11 6 yearsCopperAgeKids (3717): There is no reason go use any companies other than CBCS and CGC; all the others are not reputable. As far as subbing books to CBCS, or CGC, for that matter, the most cost effective way to do so is to sub the books through an Australian CBCS Dealer. Shipping is cheaper, and you get their dealer discount.
Grading and signature verification help Newbie 3 6 yearsBronte (37755): Not sure if this is an option for you, but if the book is for personal collection and you dont get a satisfactory answer to whether they have the signature on file, why not wait a few months and check back? The book will survive a few months in a typical comic bag.....

Great Philidelphia Comic Con Facilitators? spfd18 1 6 yearsspfd18 (50): Are there any facilitators attending the Great Philadelphia Comic Con on April 27th-29th? I'd like to get a few books signed and graded.
Pricing on these anthonybischoff 3 6 yearsMarcJ (364): Honestly, you're talking about $50 each, maybe $60 max. Slott isn't really a sought after signature and Spider-man in general isn't really "heating" up the scene. If those had been Granov signatures, you could maybe add another $15-20 to each book.

Wrong comic TheCollectorOfAll 21 6 yearsCopperAgeKids (3717): Intercepted= The package was intercepted when it arrived at the destination city as shown on the package (Vegas). 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.

Some dots on the i's, some note, some lazy L's, some not... It probably all depended on when he was doing them, lines, and at what point it was (year). I know my sig has devolved over time, but more based on my day job and age over the number of professional sigs I've done (FEW), ha ha.

Jim Shooter seems to be spelling out his name more fully now. It might be because I started a running joke that I didn't know who "Shoop" was. Others picked up on it and I saw my joke comment posted elsewhere.

Verified sig. vs. CBCS witnessed sig. ? ncamother 2 7 yearsDrogio (7809): I would think that asp books have slightly more value in that the witness reduces the risk of an unauthentic signature to essentially zero. While vsp carries slightly more risk. as no account of when or where the book was signed is provided....and coa's, which cannot be slabbed with the book, cannot necessarily be tied back to the actual book... Just my opinion.

So, that 1.5 grade last year was worth around $1500 but this year shot up to $3500. This book will continue to go up in value so the 1.5 grade doesn't bother me much. Intrinsically being unrestored and complete is evident. When I bought the book, it was alleged as a 2.5 but when it changed hands the book literally was so fragile it...

CBCS Turnaround 7/11/16 SteveRicketts Jump to first page66Jump to last page 8 yearssterlingcomics (16): Having automated information as to where the company is on basic perspective I think would be a great AUTOMATED enhancement to "keep it real". I suspect the reason why no one wants to do that is that it could help "kill/delay" business.

VSP Question SdotMdot 5 8 yearsSdotMdot (10): Well it's the Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Neal Adams variant signed by Neal. Being new to this whole grading thing I was unaware of signatures being witnessed. Oh well ya live and learn. When I first looked into getting it graded I looked at CGC but find out about the qualified label so I framed it up. Then someone told me about the signature verification program so I treated myself. Naturally I want the highest grade possible but...
Neal Adams Signature Sticker? thebeardedbat 23 8 yearsspaulus (486): Batman2001 comments will be addressed. Any AW who does not identify themselves as a witness is not acting as a witness. Each and every signature that is being witnessed, the witness has to identify themselves as a CBCS witness. If an AW does not identify themselves, their status as an AW will be revoked, and all of their books in the grading pipeline will not be eligible for a yellow label.

Help with Michael Turner signatures dielinfinite 5 8 yearsdielinfinite (26607): Thanks! At the very least I figured the signatures weren't printed or autopenned since the examples I have are different enough and I don't see why they'd go through the expense of having an intern hand sign each book when an autopen could do it cheaper and be just as "authentic."

That bugged the hell out of me. Anyways, It depends for me, the actors must be known for that character for a long time… like someone said before, I’m not going to have the cast from the walking dead sign my Walking Dead #1… the characters come and go. BUT, I have gotten Adam West and Burt Ward to sign...

Someone break down the VSP MetalPSI 22 8 yearsJesse_O (39302): Just to clarify a couple things. A signature can be verified if it is on the list of names that CSA (the company doing the verifying for CBCS) can verify. This list is quite extensive and and includes a wide variety of people - comic related artists and creators, authors, politicians, celebrities, athletes, actors, etc. IF they do not have an autograph on file, they have access to a signature database used by numerous signature verification...
