I heard back from CS today finally. They have apparently misplaced my 2 books. Which I guess is why it took so long for them to get back to me in any form, cause they were trying to find them.

I'm glad they told me, and I've asked for a refund instead of grading credit. Since they weren't super expensive books I'm not too fussed about it:
Harley Quinn #1 (2000)
Marvel Super Heroes #8 (1st Squirrel Girl)

I can't believe how my personal backlog with CBCS is just completely evaporating.

It's just unreal. Everything is moving. Everything

And finally today, my Chris Hemsworth signing moved into Grading (and delays with this I don't believe to be CBCS related; but rather Hemsworth getting around to it)

For those coming to this thread for actual information which may give you an idea of Grade only and Press & Grade TATs, with a couple of VSP thrown in, below is a detail of my 32 Non-Express Tier submissions from June 2021 through January 2023.

Received a Completed/Ready for Pickup email for a Press & Grade submission this morning (in BOLD below), plus, in light of CBCS recent posts in social media venues relating to having all currently in hand submitteds turned within the next quarter, I am eliminating all reporting of my past submission batches that have been 100% completed.

EX = Expanded (now Vintage)

Delivered to CBCS 11/15/2021 (Yes, 2021. This is a submission of 66 Magazines that were sent to Joe at CFP Comics for Pressing and he was going to re-forward to cgc for grading. After a conversation with Steve Borock, I decided to have CFP send to CBCS as I was not in a hurry to have them back and 5 1/2 dozen would be a good batch for CBCS to run through and iron out the process of Magazine encasement. "Test Dummies" is how I referred to them. Thank you again Joe for your agreeing to alter the forwarding after you completed your Pressing services. Well, there has been movement at CBCS this past week.)

#-----D0D2-MAG - 66 magazines VSP and Grade only - In Labels 2/28, In Grading 2/26, 2/16 Reverted to Received, 2/10 in ImagingSP (Probably for VSP), 2/10/23 Official Received email from CBCS.

I will continue to update until completed.

@Batman79 contact customer service, again if it has been a while, as they actually have that now. I'd send the order details and a politely worded, "Please find my books." There are some very nice people working very hard to get all of this right, and while I can only speak for myself I've found them helpful and responsive in the recent months when I've had a question or problem.

@Batman79 I "spoke" to customer service yesterday. They "will" have all orders currently in the "building" completed by the end of April. So hold on, your books will be in you hands soon.

But, please do as @figment recommended, and contact customer service. That department has improve tremendously. Awesome people working there. Very helpful....

Thanks, after getting your response, I tried, but it went to voicemail, so I emailed and told them of the problem.. as long as its correct when I get it back , I'll be happy. If it describes it as the following issue, not so much lol

OMG after mentioning this to my wife she suggested I check my receipt .. They have it Wrong on it. (I submitted it at a Galaxycon) I didn't have on my glasses and assumed that the rep would get it correct.
I was mostly a sign here to agree to the payment, and put the delivery address over to the side. I do own a copy of the next issue, but I did not take it there its still in our spare room..

CBCS does not take our word on signatures; even when we've witnessed them personally, they may not pass authentication. So, I'm sure it's on them to get the issue number correct. Don't give up trying to contact them. This could turn into a mini-disaster.

Dropped off three invoices in April of 2022.

Two invoices are graded and picked up by My Comic Shop today.

The last invoice is split between one invoice for books and one invoice for magazines.

Both of the remaining invoices are in the grading room.
