The apple sauce and pudding were the best part... Bronte private msg quote post Address this user
So I just read latest update on an order of books. The books were guaranteed 9.6 to 9.8 BUT a huge amount of books were damaged between signing and grading. From the website there are going to be books that do not meet 9.6. I only have 1 being sent to me on Saturday and the other one is still in limbo. But my question is this. What happens when a comic book store promises a 9.6 or above and you get a book lower? They said they will work with the customer on it, but a 9.6 book goes for 1k. How would they even approach compensation fir that kind of loss?

Granted this is all hypothetical because I don't have anything back yet.

Is this the company that has had your money forever? Maybe a response is in order. Something like "I only ordered two books, as long as one of them is a 9.8 or both are 9.6 I will be fine with this". Then let them respond before you say anything further.

Yeah, they have had my money since July 2020. Honestly, the company has been very cool. They had mystery boxes around Xmas time and I got 2 of them. Each contained a book worth 1k each. I got the mystery boxes for under a hundred each. So I don't want to be an ass. But at the same time I've been waiting a long time. I'm due to get one box this Saturday. So hopefully since it shipped without an email saying tough crap it is ok. The 2nd book has me worried though. Like I said i could be worried for no reason. They were just trying to be upfront about what happened.

Edit

I think I'm going to keep my yap shut unless shit hits the fan. I don't want to say something I'll regret if I'm emotional about it and especially if nothing bad comes of it to me.

I think that's a good approach then . Always best to step back and consider the entire forest rather than get angry and burn it down over a single bad tree. Hopefully your first book will be high enough that you don't mind the hit so much on the second book.

Would CBCS refuse to grade a book because of interior content? I understand the front or back covers.

I think most of what would have questionable content would be an underground, which they don't grade for that reason any way.

You can check and see if other copies have been graded.

@southerncross without looking at values I would probably go for Superman 6 and 7. Just based on what I would like to have on display.

One adjective I wouldn't ascribe to Verotik is "goofy" 🥴 Are you talking about Death Dealer and Jaguar God or something nastier like A Taste of Cherry?

I was thinking the Detective comics 14, even though it's a 1.0 with slightly brittle pages it would be my oldest book in my collection.
And it's a Gerber 7 on scarcity.
Pre Batman and pre Superman.

Second the Captain America, I don't have a golden age one and it's a world war 2 cover.

Though I'm tempted on the Superman 6&7

@southerncross - That’s a tough decision. I’d have to chose one between the America’s Best Comics #6 and the Captain America #28, then the best-looking Superman.

CGC has graded a few and looks like CBCS has graded one. https://www.cbcscomics.com/population-report/#collapse-0

@HeinzDad Yep, HexView is correct. There is one graded copy at 9.8 and it was an ASP for Simon Bisley.

Not sure I will ever understand this. A while back my 8.5 raw book at MCS auction sold for more than a 9.6 CGC that was listed at the same time. Here this week we have a slabbed 9.0
https://www.mycomicshop.com/search?ItemID=55383611

Already selling for more at auction than a slabbed 9.6 being offered at fixed price:
https://www.mycomicshop.com/search?ivitems=8944741#54229534

If it's about wrap, I would say that the wrap on the 9.6 is better. Thoughts?

Actually don’t think there is much which can be done. Believe there is also some facebook discussions about this store. The issue is that the book is now $1k for 9.6 and $2k for 9.8. What will people do if store says if you are not happy with 9.4 we can refund you the amount you originally paid?

If the viagra is working you should be well over a 9.8. xkonk private msg quote post Address this user
Just watched Empire Strikes Back for the first time in a while, and realized someone made a mistake - if they're trying to keep Luke something of a secret from Vader, why does everyone keep running around calling him Luke Skywalker? Is Skywalker like 'Smith' in the Empire? Were the rebels so poor they couldn't afford to make up a fake name?
