CBCS Graded

Turnaround time 9.017631

I called CGC about the giveback benefit. beastboy1980 private msg quote post Address this user
and how can we sell comics and send in orders if they cant complete orders in any kind of timely fashion.

why create a new grading express tier this year if you cant finish the work you have in house already.

if you can stay on top of express tiers in a timely manner then you should be able to grade moderns same way.

funny the other companys get orders back and guess what i can sell them to send in more orders.

i want to give cbcs more orders but dont trust how they work inside the place at all.

@beastboy1980 I feel the same. I sent in sept to cbcs, in october i sent to cgc, i have 3 consecutive ones back from cgc in the same time i got mine back from cbcs. And i firmly believe the only reason i got my cbcs ones back was because of 3 months of emails and phone calls letting them know how upset i was and finally asking for my books back. Then they were finished.

Order made and sent in Sept 7th 2021..

Received by CBCS receiving Dept Nov 9 2021..
Email sent that they are in grading room May 13,2022..

Nothing since then.
This was 15 moderns book with no pressing, Just grading and 2 books need signature verification.

and he also said that can change because in about 4 weeks they are moving to a new place.

so who knows

on the phone and email its 32 weeks so to me thats 160 days

but there page says 224

i told him nicely on the phone if cbcs would have posted up new TATS times accordingly i could have expressed some or not sent them all into cbcs if i knew the times were this long.

i asked him why is it not changed before this the current new tats times.

cgc changed it on a weekly basis. but cbcs just leaves it there the same and then poof it all changes.

funny the small compnay that starts with P and ends with a X can get orders back timely and guess what they sell but cbcs cant update a webpage like cgc . a huge compnay like this cant make true updates to key data like turn around times.

thats just nonsense

he told me 32 weeks for each of my orders from this january

but then said it could all change if they move end of the month

i then said if its 32 weeks why does the webpage say 224 days

i find it funny how the other company that starts with P AND ENDS WITH A X can get my orders back in same year.

I was like why does there webpage say 2 diff things
and i said why did there own page never change the TATS long ago
if we all saw the true times we would have expressed orders or not sent in them.

cgc is more up to date with a true TAT Times
all i am saying is this. you take our money run the webpage and give out accurate information on a weekly basis

Well I guess I am 1/2 way there at 17 weeks for 17 Modern. Wonder how bad the one 2-Day Modern book (which doesn't exist as a tier anymore) and one Expanded book will bollux things up?! And that's for just 1 order of 3 submitted around the same time.

CGC order that was checked in on may 17th

memo to cbcs if you are the same price as cgc but cant grade any orders this year you need to do much much better than this.

Anyone have an idea of how long it will take for books we had graded on-site at Fan Expo Dallas to show online in our accounts? I have a book I submitted and really need to see the grader notes but nothing from the June 18th submissions (picked up on June 20th)is showing in my online inventory yet.

Those are very close to the end of the line. I have three orders that hit Grading sometime in May. Two are complete, the third is now beyond grading in Labels.

"Vintage" (Pre-1975) Orders from September 2021

CBCS Expanded

1) Delivered 9/07/21, Entered 11/04/21, Grading 5/19/22, Labels 6/4/22, Complete 6/15/22 (281 total days)
2) Delivered 9/07/21, Entered 11/04/21, Grading 5/19/22, Labels 6/4/22, Complete 6/24/22 (290 total days)
3) Delivered 9/08/21, Entered 11/08/21, Grading 6/03/22, Labels 6/8/22, Complete 7/08/22 (303 total days)
4) Delivered 9/17/21, Entered 11/12/21, Grading 5/19/22, Labels 6/18/22, Complete 6/20/22 (276 total days)
5) Delivered 9/20/21, Entered 11/11/21, Grading 7/06/22

A little out of order, the last one should now be less than a month until completion. It is worth noting that submission size did have an effect, with larger submissions taking longer than smaller ones. Meanwhile, the ones at CGC are still just sitting there.

CGC may be getting back modern orders faster than CBCS, but for pre-1975 it's the other way around. Perception is all about what you submit I guess.

My second order (slab only for two and art label for one) dropped at Orlando Megacon (may 19-22) that should have had the official clock start on May 25th (wednesday after con) have just hit "received" status and is visible on the dashboard. One day short of 7 weeks (with one holiday in there). Quote:

The post before you indicated they're currently working on September as have several other posts from the previous couple of pages going back about a week in this thread. One person (at least) is still waiting for a June 2021 order with no press or anything. Seems 16 posts on the last two pages of this thread about a January submission is...pointless at best. It sucks they either gave you bad information or flat out lied when you submitted, but what additional information do you actually need at this point? All your questions have been answered.

That's been common for years at CBCS AND CGC. TATS are usually the shortest during the break in the convention season then rise as, then they drop. Submissions have been crazy high during the pandemic and throw in the supply chain issues and lock downs, you get stupid TATs. CGC seems to be addressing the problem while CBCS says they are but there are no real clear indicators. TATS hold or are going up and prices right along with them. CBCShad a huge opportunity to gain ground but, as has become SOP they squandered it and will likely start bleeding any but the most loyal fan boys.
