@TScomics1 Your order was received in Pressing on 12/19. It will probably be a few more weeks before it moves to grading.

Yeah that’s fine most will press/clean when grading because a grade bump is almost always worth the 15 bucks but there’s also inherit risk that the book can be ruined.


Thanks @teacha777. Sounds dangerous then, because the autograph ink might be dissolved or something.
Probably better to have it slabbed (Authenticated) only in the future.


Literally had 100’s slabs with sigs pressed and cleaned from the 90’s to recent never had that happened. Have had detached covers happen twice and significantly lower grades after a crack sign and press(which could be due to any number of things)


@teacha777 Thanks, I guess I just have to try it first myself.


Alright, received by CBCS and now just waiting for card to be charged. I do hope I get a bump on the 4 ASP books.
Happy to share TAT here as it progresses through pressing & grading.

The pressing room must have gotten a lot busier in the last 4-5 months. I remember my last submission at the end of August which completed VSP/Pressing/and grading all within 30 total days! My current submission blew through VSP in 2-3 days but has been in "Pressing" itself for a month. My submission number seems to be fairly close number wise to comicninja's above, so it looks like about a 1.5 month pressing TAT now?

@Silversorrow We're running around 4 to 6 weeks currently in pressing. Pressing turnaround should get closer to 4 weeks over the next month or so because we've been picking up some time.

Grading is still ahead of schedule, so your total in-house time should still be better than what is advertised.

Woot! My order just made it through Pressing and back into received status sometime in the last couple hours since the last time I checked. Exactly 37 calendar days (27 work days), or 5 weeks and 2 days since arriving in the pressing room.

Now onto grading it goes! Thanks again for everything you do @SteveRicketts and crew!

@SteveRicketts Out of curiosity, is 24-09D841A-NW still in pressing? Looking forward to seeing what you guys could do with it; it really didn't present well in the slab before.
