I don't mind them taking weeks or months to post the grades. Weeks (or will it be months?) to get out the door after it gets to shipping is the frustrating part.

what type of order was this ?

i hope when they moved they did not misplace orders


The order is 4 vintage and 4 modern. All with Press Screening (apparently all 8 books were pressed).

i got an email this week saying my order has entered the "Grading Room". However, on my account, it says my order was in grading since July (I never got an email about the status change though).

Can anyone clarify if this email was just sent late or my order was never in grading in July. Does anyone know how much longer it'll take from this stage?

Have I told you about the time I dropped off 3,000 comics at SDCC? Scifinator private msg quote post Address this user
@loubot - it could be that the email is just catching up. It could be that there was a change in sub-stage of the grading status (which you could see by clicking the “Print Invoice” hyperlink after clicking the submission. It could also be that it entered the grading room back in july and is just now being graded.

Not happy in the least with any of the experience.


@dwhitwo254 Was this RCCC by any chance? Sounds a lot like my order. Though mine was 140 books and they are still in "labels".

Also not happy here either.
@SidTheSquid

Not sure what RCCC is but it’s a couple out of eastern TN and was at a comic con in Kentucky
RCCC is Rose city comic con

@Sciontech @Nearmint67 Agreed. I have an early December 2021 submission and a February 2022 submission currently pending. Gives me hope that there's some light at the end of the tunnel.

Lots of movement yesterday and today below in Bold

EDITED 9/28 - I have noticed a couple of others post what I have also noticed a few times and now 3 times in the past week. That being, after a brief movement to the "Labels" and "HeatSeal" sub-stages of Grading, the submission goes back to the "Grading" sub-stage in the "Print Invoice" hyperlink. I am wondering if perhaps maybe CBCS has added in, but not sub-staged, a new QC or maybe Finishing process whereby they are buffing out the encasements? Just speculation on my part as there was a couple of points where reports of marring or marks on the encasements were being reported, but I have not seen any of recent.

So almost a year ago I went to comic con in NYC, got 13 books signed with a witness from CBCS and those books still say received. Of course they received them at comic con October 8th, but didn't put them in the system until Dec 8th. So in two weeks I'm heading to comic con in NYC again, but since I won't have last year's books back from CBCS I will now have to go to the competition so I don't have to wait another year not to receive my book.

So I clicked on the "print invoice" to open it up and it shows me which of the books have passed the pre-screened grades.
And which books are being rejected.
20 of the 30 books have passed & 10 were rejected.
Here they be







I have to wait until they ship before I can see what the final grades are on the books that have passed the grade pre-screen.

Submission contents: 4 Modern Standard service, no other services
4 Vintage Standard service, no other services

Order made: November 11, 2021
Order shipped: November 12, 2021
Order arrives at Canadian Hub (RIP): November 19, 2021
Order Arrives in Texas: February 1, 2022

Modern part of order entered grading June 29,2022. So, I would say I am a bit surprised based on the info here I really wasn't expecting anything moving on to grading until the late summer or fall.Not sure what is going to happen with shipping when this is all done what with no hub up here anymore. I will not pay them one cent more than I already have.


Moved to slabbing. No idea how long this has been taking lol. While not happy with the TATs I have to say I likely won't be waiting as long as I anticipated.


Moderns in QC and vintage in shipping.


Ship to Canada status now so an indeterminate amount of time later they may actually ship out. Yay!


Got a call from CBCS a few minutes ago to confirm which address to ship to. So I guess they will ship out today or tomorrow. That light is getting much brighter. While I am critical of the TATs right now all and all my order didn't take as long as I expected. For those who's book are in shipping my books have been there for about 3 weeks so hopefully that gives you guys some hope of movement soon. YMMV

I hope it works out for you that way. I've been in ShipToCanada mode for 7 weeks now. It was four weeks ago that they confirmed my mailing address and said it would be shipped that day or the next.
