CBCS President & Comic Cover Connoisseur sborock private msg quote post Address this user
CBCS President Steve Borock announced today the first-ever CBCS Grading Expo to be held at its headquarters in Dallas on January 19-21, 2020. The expo will be headlined by acclaimed comic book author Donny Cates, of Marvel fame, and noted comic book illustrator Sam de la Rosa. Participants will be treated to Q&A sessions and private autograph signings along with seminars, social events, a trade night and other activities during the expo.

Additional guest presenters include Buddy Saunders, owner of mycomicshop.com (The world’s largest volume seller of comics) and I Like Comics owner Chris Simons. Mr. Borock will host and lead the discussions for attendees. The CBCS grading team will be available to attendees for one-on-one meetings throughout the event.

As part of each fully paid admission, attendees will receive 25 comic book gradings, hotel accommodations, a gift bag of valuable items and a buy/sell/trade event. The expo kickoffs off Sunday night with a steak dinner followed by events including poker & movie night, a catered Texas BBQ, a Mexican food lunch buffet, with breakfast provided each morning.

CBCS has secured the rights to offer pre-expo autograph submissions which are available via mail for Mr. Cates and Mr. de la Rosa as well. Please contact Darryl Hayden (dhayden@cbcscomics.com) for pricing details and submission deadlines.

Additionally, there will be a public autograph signing featuring Mr. Cates on Monday, January 20th, to be held at CBCS headquarters. The signing will be held from 10 AM-12 Noon.

Space at the Expo is extremely limited, and reservations are being offered on a first-come first-served basis for a set number of customers.

For reservations, pricing and more detailed information please contact Darryl Hayden (dhayden@cbcscomics.com).

I just got my email.

I might have to do this. I’d love to see the place, and meet Donny!

I’m really interested in where this bbq is coming from, though. Ha!

Well, maybe not at the same time...

But, Dallas has a very good bbq place that I’m curious if it’s that.

And this isn’t a knock on Sam de la Rosa, but I’ve seen him 4 times in the last 4 months.

@sborock These may be dumb questions...

Why wasn't the cost associate with the event provided in either the email or the posting here?

Has the cost not been finalized?

What is the cost associated with attending?

I just have a quick question.
25 free submissions are they for just modern books or all eras ?
If they are for modern what is the year date like 1977 to the present ?
Can books be dropped off while there to be graded from Golden and silver age ?
And I assume books will be graded and sent out weeks after the expo ?
