I have been billed for all three invoices submitted at Little Giant including the magazines.

The invoice still has the normal comic book charges for these books instead of the higher magazine prices.

My guess is that I will be hit for the difference down the road.

My question is, what will they do when your books and magazines are done being graded and the cases still aren't available?

Becket has magazine cases so I don't know why they won't figure this out by then.

It's possible they could use those. But I think I remember them saying they were inferior to the design of the new magazine cases and didn't want to use them for that reason.

We are close. We are not putting a date on it because every time someone in the building starts giving out a date something happens to delay it. All the pieces of this puzzle are finally starting to fall into place now. Trust me, this case is worth the wait.

The new CBCS mag case is so nice that Beckett is going to start using them too.

OK. Well I'll keep my batch of magazines here for awhile longer and wait!

Thanks!

Waiting patiently with some minty Savage Swords and Marvel Preview mags. Hope your crew can deliver solid grading and competitive TATs. Looking forward to seeing the new holder first hand.

lol, y'all are still holding your breath on this? It's NEVER going to happen. Or by the time it does, TATs are going to be 3 years, so you might be looking at, oh, 6 years until you're holding a CBCS magazine slab in your hands.

No. If they ever do start, they'll kick the first batches out as quickly as possible so the word, and images, are on the street and in the CBCS social media posts. They aren't going to say "ok, we're ready now" then have year long tats.
So the first ones to submit will get preferential treatment.

I couldn't wait any longer so a bunch went elsewhere. More will follow later.

From what I have heard through the grapevine is that they are still further away than they want to be on the mag certification. Could be months....

My question is why did I have to come to the forum for any info or update? Also if mag slabs don't yet exist why have the pricing show on your website and why have no blerb about the non existent of the magazines? There should have already been a post somewhere or an email blast something. This is so frustrating especially since the only option kinda sucks.(CGC mag slab)

So you're saying it doesn't make sense to advertise and price a service they don't actually offer?

You must be new here.

Mags were supposed to launch in April, hence the pricing, but were delayed for whatever reasons. Your question is valid. I don’t remember the reason Mags were delayed and some kind of update would be great.
