What the heck did I just buy?18133

The listing information matches The CGC label, but the CGC (therefore listing) information does not match the book! Am I missing something?

Blurry picture when I zoom in. Is it using the Legacy number instead of the #2?

@sportshort
The photo is so tiny I can't read the label, but I can see that the issue # is two digits long, and the last time I checked '#2' has only one digit. Are you able to make out the CGC # on the label? Since CGC has finally made that free to look up on their website, I'd strongly suggest doing that.

Looks to me like you bought a copy of #2A, mislabeled. And 9.2 is a very common grade for it.

@sportshort Yep, wrong label....
Either cancel the order if you have not paid, or send it to CGC for new label.
They will pay for shipping both ways and no charge for new corrected label.
Happens all too often.

Here's the entire book, hope it's not blurry. is this book at least the real deal or is it some sort of 2nd, 3rd or something print? I really hate the idea of sending back to CGC. I haven't paid for it yet but I did want the book.

@Nearmint67, any idea how long it takes to swap the label out? I'm not into waiting several months, or a year.

@Byrdibyrd, I know you've had to send books back and the experience sucked (as I recall).

@sportshort
CGC will expedite your returns submissions, and they're really pretty quick about fixing their errors. I can usually get a returns submission back within a couple of weeks.

Yeah, I've had some serious issues with CGC's returns policy in the past because you had to get the okay from CS to send anything back and it was a nightmare getting them to reply. They've actually fixed that now, and you bypass CS entirely and just go to their website and make a returns submission through the "mail-in or show drop-off" option and scroll down to 'Mechanical error/return.' It's very easy and streamlined. CBCS should take note, IMHO.

I had to get new labels for 3 books a few years ago. Then it took about 3 weeks from the day I shipped them, until they came back. It's fast since they don't have to grade it. As @Byrdibyrd said...


@Byrdibyrd SWEEEET!!!! A Superbat book??? lol...

@sportshort Make them send you the shipping label so you don't have to pay.

Part of the process of submitting the return will take you to a pre-paid shipping label. It'll ask you for weight and dimensions on the parcel, so pack the book up as if you're going to ship out ahead of time. It'll make things easier.

Pretty much my reaction when I saw the label mix-up. I'm still cleaning bits off the ceiling.

I believe it. I stopped submitting over a year ago after 20 slabs came back fractured. The number of different QA/QC issues nowadays is mind-blowing. Incorrectly placed labels? Seriously???

It’s not really limited to one company.

True,but when you use CBCS and it happens, you can smile and be happy about it, because it's no big deal. Just send them back and enjoy a nice big jug of kool-aid.

No, it's definitely not. I think CGC is just better known for it because their QC got sloppier before CBCS' QC got dodgy.

Can you give us a close-up of the comic's bar code? That will tell us the printing and variant cover info
