The apple sauce and pudding were the best part... Bronte private msg quote post Address this user
If you are looking for authentication without slabbing, you could do it through Beckett signature confirmation.

It's quick and dirty, and you dont get anything official. But you do get peace of mind that it passed or failed to be verified.

So I created my order (20-3F259AD) back in November 9, 2020. And it is now Jan 19, 2022. Over 4-months it has been on Ship-To-Canada and I still haven’t received anything. No correspondence either.

Is there anyway I can change this to have it shipped directly to me? Instead of sending it to the Canada office? Not even sure if that’s the reason why it’s taking so long?

Please… anyone, help.

So does a pressing fast pass increase that 1.7 year TAT? Asking for a friend.

Fast pass cuts time in half. I would suggest it on pressing and grading if you can afford it.

Edit.
Each is a separate cost

- Mailed out May 24th, 2021
- Arrived on June 2nd, 2021
- Marked Received on July 2nd 2021
- Noticed it in Grading when clicking on the invoice number, and marked Labels on the Invoice PDF on Oct. 28, 2021 (not sure when it actually was marked to those, since I didn't check those until that date).

Hopefully sometime in the very near future, I will get those books back, but not holding my breath.


As of 12:57PM today, looks like my books have been graded, and now in the production area to be slabbed. No grades listed or any of that, but it's nice to finally have an update. Hopefully the books will be home soon.


As of this afternoon, my books have shipped and my dashboard has been updated with all my books and their grades (with the exception of one VSP that was rejected). Essentially, 7 months. Hopefully they are back safely sometime next week.


As of roughly 10:50am, my books have arrived from CBCS. So, 33 weeks from the date it arrived at CBCS.


My 28 VSP modern book order was received end of May and is still in labels. Hopefully it'll ship out this month.

My June 1 2021 submission (21-1DF72F1) has been in Labels for 2 and a half months now. I am guessing there is a big log jam at this stage.

Hoping to see this shipped out soon.

Quick question - I selected FedEx as the return shipper (I shipped to the Canada location) will my order come straight back to me or back to the Ontario location first?

Cheers

That’s unlikely… if you do, please let me know. Been waiting for my books since DEC 2020! 17 books still sitting in ShipToCanada status for 3+ months!

Man, if you get yours before my DEC 2020 submission, then they need to find my books and payout all those books out if they’re lost.

It’s getting ridiculous.

Just wanted to thank everyone on the forum for helping me on my first CBCS order, especially @dielinfinite. I got my Judge Dredd #25, signed and sketched by one of favorite artists Brendan McCarthy. Very glad I went for the original art option, as it seems the paint bled through the comic.

@BrenoMp I’m glad you were able to get that taken care of and that you got the book back so quickly!

What options did you use to submit? 2-Day Modern?
Post 462 IP   flag post
Collector BrenoMp private msg quote post Address this user
@dielinfinite I used the original art option. I was surprised it came back so fast. Maybe since I only got it slabbed as art and not graded? Or beginners luck?

Grades posted and order closed, assume shipping soon. My order was submitted at a con June 19th, 2020 for situation awareness. All 5 were modern no fast no press. But they all came back 9.8 so that’s great news 😃

@Whammykablam
Sorry to hear that. That's the first time I've ever heard of that happening. My personal experience with them has been kinda weird. They claimed they couldn't tell given the pictures and refunded my money. When I mailed the book in, it passed.... go figure.

@Nuffsaid111 Sent my 1st shipment in 09/21. Went into processing 11/21. 2nd shipment sent 10/21. In processing 12/21. Neither has moved since then. Don't know if I'll be using any grading service after this. Will probably just sell my raw comics to buy already graded comics that I really want.

@PhantomStranger271 - Could be in "labels" for hours, weeks to even a couple/few months. If the Labels notification was delayed and Grading was completed sometime ago, it will be on the quicker side. However, if it actual just went to labels with a near immediate notification, it will likely be at least a couple of months as that appears to be one of the biggest logjam areas (Labels - HeatSeal - Encapsulation zone). Most never see HeatSeal and Encapsulation updates.

@DVSCHO Completed means it has shipped, so it should be 1-5 days depending on how far you live from Dallas shipped back to yiu by FedEx which is standard.

@Scifinator ok, I'm confused. My dashboard still says "Processing" and when I click the invoice, I see "Grading".

But customer service yesterday emailed me back since I asked for an update/status just to see. They told me my order was in "Labels". I know everyone I have spoken to is CBCS oriented/connected in some way, I just don't who's the input I should agree with? Does that make sense?

@PhantomStranger271 - that is what i was alluding to. While we may see stutus of “Grading” on te external dashboard, it may actually be further along. In your case, it is already in labels. Labels to shipping steps seem to be taking 2-3 months, but if your external dashboard doesn’t get updated, you may not see “Labels” for a while, and then, maybe just a few hours or days if already in shipping fir instance. Keep in mind, some reports in Dec had people receiving their comics back before the dashboard was even marked shipped or completed.

Fabulous, I'm sure. I would just tell you as someone who's been slabbing almost since the beginning, don't get caught up in this. Nothing good will come from having your books slabbed by a company with no reputation. You will just end up frustrated that no one wants to pay anything close to FMV for your slabbed books. Take it from someone who's been there before. A grading company needs to come with a built in reputation and, to some degree, a built in client base of dealers. If they don't start with these things, it's very unlikely they will grow into them.
