You wouldn't have any problem consigning those books with them. You will of course need to be prepared for the tight grades that will be assigned to them. That just comes with the territory when selling raws through MCS. It gets under your skin initially but eventually you come to realize that with many books it's better to accept a tight grade that is respected by the market than to spend the time and money getting them slabbed.

Currently watching Justice Society: World War II. Why are the DC animated movies better than 90% of the DCEU movies? I don't get how one can be so well done and the other is a mess.

Doesn't necessarily need answers. A rhetorical rant. Haha.

For the same reason as what is drawn on the page conveys more to the reader than trying to translate it into a live action medium. Animated films are still drawn and able to achieve more with, shall we say, less effort than a live action film.

That said, I agree that the animated shows are better than most anything live action. Of course, the cartoons appeal to the kid in me and are quite nostalgic.

With all tbe modern spec books I've been buying I needed to buy zone short boxes. Here is the best deal I could find on corrugated plastic short boxes for regular raw books.

@Nearmint67

From what I see on the website his are cardboard based. The ones I posted are corrugated plastic. From my understanding bugs like cardboard. Also plastic is semi water resistant and more durable than cardboard in my opinion.

@Bronte Yeah, plastic is more durable.
I haven't had any bug issues.
And I was concerned about possible water damage as my hot water heater is on the other side of the wall from where I store my books, so I built a storage unit with the bottom shelf about 5" off the ground.
So there would have to be a boat load of water come in to do any damage.
I was just sharing an affordable option.

Does anyone have a general idea how much it will affect a grade to have a centerfold loose at 1 staple. Or a cover also? Assume it's a silver/bronze book that would otherwise grade in the 7.5 range.

With the Mcu being multiverse crazy right now and deadpool possibly about to join the Mcu is it to far off to spec on deadpool merc with a mouth 7. My reasoning for this book is the story is about deadpool hopping thru the multiverse and the couple 1st app. For me this is a big book as my limit in buying is about $35-$150 leaning on the lower end. Also im not buying to flip but trying to chase that "Ha, I was right." feeling.

I received a 9.0 from CBCS for a BA ASM with the centerfold loose at one staple. I have not submitted any books to them with the cover detached at one staple, but I think I have seen them graded as high as 6.5.

It would definitely be speculative. All the excitement would be over Deadpool and maybe other characters that appear in the movie, but if he goes multiverse hopping (and obviously if other Deadpools pop up) then it could see some pop I guess. I remember all the copies of Avengers where Iron Man got the Infinity Gauntlet popping up on eBay.

I've heard that the next Deadpool movie is going to introduce madcap from Captain America 307. I think that would be the better spec book. I hunted down a couple copies.

Can you ever grow a vegetable or fruit to be organic if it had roots in the past of artificial fertilizer and man made pesticides?

Everything is organic. Unless it was imported from another planet.

True. But there is a special designation at the produce section of costco for bananas. Pretty sure they said the all natural stuff cost more than the regular man altered stuff.

Why do they call it organic when it isn't made from organs?

I see the price change thread is locked. Was there drama, or is no one allowed to complain about it?
Not trying to restart any discussion over it, just wondering why it's locked, and there aren't other discussions.

@Siggy I think it was getting out of hand with too much criticism of CBCS and too many posts promoting CGC. No one, including myself, was really adding anything to the discussion. I think you'll get suspended if you start posting about the same topic that has already been locked.

What's your personal criteria when deciding what books to grade? Do you pick PC over resale value, or go for higher grade/higher value books first?

In a pickle trying to decide what to send off next, after buying the venom collection a few months back with key 9.8 candidates and picking up some other amazing looking books and higher value books recently, the list is getting too long and I'd like to limit it to about 10 for now.

Yah, I was being moronic about unrelated stuff in the thread and trying to make valid complaints at the same time. Not a good look for me if I want anyone to take me serious.
