Will CBCS grade these mini comics for me?1298

COLLECTOR kaptainmyke private msg quote post Address this user
I have these mini comic books that I wish to be encapsulated. Will they fit in a holder? How does that work? They are really small.

Thanks

These are "digest" size items, should not be a problem for CBCS. Mini comics are considerably smaller - down to postage stamp size.

One came from San Diego comic con being an exclusive item for the release of the new action figure line in 2012. The other mini comic book only came inside of the 1994 release of the four action figures associated with the "Warriors of the forgotten sewer" line of turtles.

Can you elaborate on that? Why did they say the size affected the grading tier?

I was told because of the smaller size it was going to take more effort to slab because they have to have special inner wells for the smaller books or something like that, so it had to be bumped up a tier. I can't recall the entire convo because it was at a con & I was in a huge hurry to get to booths. I only stopped at CBCS's table first to see if it could in fact be graded.

If it was cheaper i would grade all 25 but price has to go down first or just keep them in the box.

the price won't go down..... unless you subscribe to a higher level subscriber tier.

This thread still hasn't made it clear what the issue was. I'd like to know because I want to submit some rare ashcans eventually. Anyone from CBCS around to speak in this?

We will do ashcans but ask that you submit them under the 2-Day Modern tier because they are very labor intensive for us to encapsulate.

I posted a photo of an ashcan they graded for me in KC above. That should have answered the question on if they could or not.
