The person with that ID is a member of the boards across the street. Not sure if they participate here.

Do you think MCS grades any raw comics submitted for consignment at a 9.8?

I know some say the comics are graded so harshly to avoid returns but it seems to me if they had competent graders they could actually grade the comics at what they should be graded

I also know that most people that buy from them know the grading deal but man.....

I submitted a few raw books and I know the majority of them should be at least a 9.2 or higher and the best I got was an 8.0

No. If they are consignment would not be too worried. If for sale - price them at the grade you think they should be. If auction, they should get similar value as slabbed value or more

I have seen a few 9.0, 9.2, and 9.4 raws on their site. I haven't seen anything higher.

9.0 and 9.2 were the highest raw books I've received from them. They weren't on consignment.

A 9.4 is the highest they seem to go with raw comics. Check out their “New Listings” to see what books get that grade. They usually sell pretty quickly, probably because everyone seems to think they must really be 9.8’s. I still say let your eyes be the judge, and buy the book, not the assigned grade.

@MutanMania, they also grade their stock books tight. A 7.0- 7.5 can become a 9.6. Especially if they have a surplus.

Sorry to hear. You know your dad best. Think you need to seek professional assistance. Hope for the best

When I was 16-17, my parents and I moved to a townhouse (rental) next to a townhouse that my grandpa and grandma rented. My grandpa had Alzheimer's. One of the symptoms is dementia. Every day I went over there to shave my grandpa. It was rough to see a man that I loved, respected and looked up to diminish the way he did. You have my sincere best wishes. Dementia is not easy to deal with.

Yeah. I am going to ask my therapist and see what she says, but I figured by off chance maybe someone might have some insight.

Thank you all for taking the time to respond.

@Bronte I'm really sorry to read about that. I've been very fortunate in that my mom, who just turned 87, is still in very good health. However, over the last year, my family has been struggling with my teenage daughter and mental health issues.

I know it's not the same thing but I can really sympathize with you right now. I'm wishing for the best for you and your dad.

@DWeeB1967

Thank you. In regards to your daughter, I hope you are encouraging her to see someone to help her through this time. Adolescence is hard and recent events compound the issue. I would emphasize you are open to communication with her and that while you may not completely understand, you will make the effort to try and give her the tools to seek help elsewhere if needed....

Sorry, for the unsolicited advice. I hate seeing parents going through difficult times when sometimes a few suggestions might help....

My mother has dementia. My sister and I take turns staying with her and my dad. It takes patience and a lot of repetition. We have a home health care nurse that comes four days a week during the day. Extreme mood swings, seeing people that aren't there, and loss of memory. She wants to know where her parents are and wants to go home constantly even though she's in her home of 60+ years. She's 85.

She has refused to take her medication because she thought we were trying to poison her. She has told us to pack our stuff and get out of the house and leave her alone as she didn't need any help. She has wanted us to call the police to come and rescue her. She didn't want to go to bed because she thought we were trying to kill her. A full moon will affect her mood. The list goes on and on.

However, some days she's very manageable and even pleasant. It can wear on you though.

@DrWatson

I'm sorry to hear that. Thank you for sharing. Your description sounds similar to my father. Although he does not appear to have gotten to the level of your mom yet, it gives me an idea as to what his issue might be. I live with my father so I am his full time caretaker. I gotta say I commend you for taking care of your mom. It isn't easy to put life on hold to take care of someone...

I appreciate all the help I can get, @Bronte.

She sees a psychiatrist and is on a number of meds. She used to see a psychologist as well but she's recently stopped seeing her in favor of attending a weekly peer group meeting that is headed up by a counselor at her high school. So, we are certainly trying to get her the help that she needs.

Oh ye of little dog knowledge. Two daily meals don't discourage eating whatever can be found.

Presumably they will soften a bit on the way through the system.
