Sir could you please. I beg you. Locate this order and please let me know the status. This is my holy grail. And could the fact that I had to update my new credit card but invoice shows the expired one be a problem? I thank you severely deeply for your time.

I dropped off 10 books for re-holdering from Red Label/old slabs to Yellow Label/new slabs at Baltimore comicon.

Baltimore ended Oct 24th.
Books are already being shipped with a FEDEX tracking.
That's less than 1 month.
I'm pretty darn happy with that turnaround of less than 1 month.

Modern books received April 12th with fast press but normal grading time. With TAT changing so much I’m completely lost on when to expect my books. Any ideas/guesses?

This is a good question and one I've wondered about myself.
Is the published TAT to be expected at the point when the comic(s) are received or is it the published TAT later on that applies?

Back in April when the comic was delivered I think Modern TAT was 16 weeks.
Nov 22 it is now 25 weeks.
So is one to expect the (roughly) 16 weeks or 25 weeks as of today?

Assuming the TAT is up to date, that's what you should expect for grading. If you're pressing, you should assume the pressing TAT for when you submit and the grading TAT for whenever it gets out of pressing. That's my understanding.

At least for starters has anybody had any experience and how long it takes books to be marked as received when they are sent to the Canadian location in Canada?

Any help would be appreciated.


I sent mine in (modern no pressing) June 14 to CBCS Canada. Marked received 3 months later. 4 weeks later marked ShiptoCanada. Received at the door last week. The whole process was almost 5 months. hope this helps

@Nuffsaid111

Turnaround time 100% doesn't remain at the stated TAT when they received the books. I'm over 8 weeks past that with my current 2 subs.
I have two modern subs they received on June 8. I don't remember the stated TAT at that time but I know it was increased to 17 weeks shortly after they received them. It was then increased to 22 weeks and a week or so ago it was increased to 25 weeks.
These are both modern tier subs without pressing and have been at CBCS for 24 weeks and 1 day now.
Ironically enough, I had only ever used CGC before, was paranoid about their increasing TAT and thought I'd give CBCS a shot. I had subbed a bunch of comics to have back in time for Eternals, What If?, Hawkeye and Cowboy Bebop which was obviously a mistake.

@timberghost

My quote was aimed at the person that asked for help. Got a reasonable response then asked them to repeat themselves for reasons I can't fathom.

As for the second portion of my quote where that person won't be happy until they got their books back, I think I was just proved correct.

If you feel that description fits you, so be it....

The amount of time answering posts an emails for one book far exceeds the payout for the one book. This seems to me like an order at my shop that would have been cancelled.

well that 1 book means a lot to me, I'm not in this to flip a bunch of books and try to get rich, and the way you tell a company that you would want to deal with is the fact that they care as much about one book as they would 100, says a lot about you and your shop.

The invoice pic shows five books. The shop I work work for offers a product that cost 5 times a book grading. If that tells you anything it says at some point scads of emails and social media begrudging's just aren't worth the sale. I'm just being honest @timberghost.

Think your confusing my post for emails, since I have only emailed the big guy twice. I could really care less about your shop, just being honest.

Hey no, it's cool, I didn't expect you to care. I guess I'm just wondering why you would rake the company over the coals on social media? What does it gain?

No, CBCS will charge the card on file. If you have an old one on file just update it, and the next time they need to charge you they will use the new card. I know this from personal experience so not to worry.
