they could not answer one reason why they were so backed up.

one guy told me that he does not work down there in cbcs he was hired to just work shows.

i said thats bad they have workers working shows and they cant even explain whats going on inside.

cgc was somewhat busy but cbcs booth was quiet as a mouse


i explained to the guy that before the new tiers the times for moderns were about 130 days
he goes i dont think so. i said yes i got 3 orders back before the new ones of this year came in in about 6 months time . i said i was excited to start sending in new orders into cbcs and have orders lined up to come back in about 6 months. one guy knew i was right and was quiet . i said new tiers come and then all of a sudden the webpage springs from 124 days to 224 days same day. i said thats bullshit

A guy followed me around, and I paid to have it done. I had to send a picture of my invoice to prove it. Now all is good and it has moved on. Make sure you keep any invoices.
Two days later, I received an email that it was graded. This is faster than I anticipated.


they are running a shit show


what confuses me is this
why even attend ny comic con if you cant address the work in house already.
people posting up no answers back.
moved into new place

i cant wait to walk over to there booth saturday at the ny comic con

It has been super frustrating waiting. I wish I had paid the extra. My friend did and he got his in just a few weeks. I will say that the guys running the booth were great. We walked to two different creators to get signatures. Took about an hour, but he was very patient and we were able to talk about comics the whole time. That part was fine


i told the guys that also.
i said listen you get backed up and all i can get it. but you did not even offer anyone a chance to bump up there orders in house for so long. i said its like they dont care.
i told them cgc right next door to your booth is 20 days
and guess what i said cbcs never updates there webpage but yet cgc changes there times.
beckett is a 250 million dollar compnay start acting like it

My oldest order of modern pre-screens turned one year old on 8/25/2022 - i.e. the date the package was delivered to CBCS, not the date where they officially "Received" it. I emailed CS on 8/25/2022 and asked if they had an ETA for this order. CS responded on 10/7/2022 that the order was in "Heatseal" which I've known for the past three plus months but CS did not provide an ETA.

Fortunately I have new product to sell as orders with the other guys are coming back fast (almost too fast...).

If anyone has followed my status/posts you know that I asked CBCS to cancel all orders that were in a status of "Received" as I have one in "Heatseal" and now one in "Grading". So far they have not acted on my request other than to verify that I want to cancel the orders. The totals are 2,243 books with CBCS of which 1.763 are in "Received" status - I really want those 1,763 books back as well as the majority of the shipping costs that I have already paid.

I'm not upset with myself for the orders I submitted in 2021 but I could kick myself for submitting orders in 2022 when I knew CBCS was in trouble.

It takes me back to 2014 when I was at Heroes-Con in Charlotte chatting with Steve Borock and letting him know how excited I was to have more than one viable choice for comic grading. Back then the CBCS site could not take orders - that changed within a month or two.

Most new businesses fail due to lack of positive cash flow. However the saddest cases are those in which a new business could not manage explosive growth. I understand that Borock's official reason for leaving CBCS was the outstanding opportunity for him at Lone Star Comics. But I have to think that the situation at CBCS helped provide more than just a catalyst for the move.

I'm not sure how CBCS gets out of this mess. Could they implement a moratorium on submitting non-express orders for a six month period? Have a definitive start and end date for the moratorium?

I've been beyond reasonable through this debacle but I want my 1,763 books back - any suggestions on how to proceed?

Good job, I'm sure that ruining someone else's day made you feel like a big man. Must be exciting to beat on the little guys are who completely powerless and just trying to make a living. If you happen to run across a FedEx driver make sure you give em hell about some of the delivery issues people have been mentioning here on the forum.

Ask the graveyard of companies that have failed to deliver in a timely manner....oh yeah. I pound drums for no company. I love CBCS slabs. Staff at cons are awesome to talk to. A much better experience than I have had with CGC at cons, but even I have my limits in patience. I will say this about CGC, they have a bad corporate taste with me at times but I get results....and they always respond to my emails. The true perks of being a paid customer. I would vote for a moratorium...sadly.

Exactly...
The reference was made in a manner deserving childish behavior.
Glad you got it.
If your not happy, stop sending books to cbcs and stop complaining.
The turn times are what they are.

Looks like timeout part deux has occurred.

I find it particularly peculiar for an individual to get put in timeout; come out of timeout; and immediately put themselves back in a perpetual timeout situation yet again.

What's that age-old definition of insanity?

Yeah, and the next go around could pass the one month suspension and go straight to the ban, especially if his next return is the same as his last.

This isn't a democracy. It's like being invited to your neighbor's house and repeatedly pissing on the rug. Eventually, they are going to show you the door and tell you not to come back.

For me it's not the forum-venting that gets under my skin. Sure, it goes on too long and gets obnoxious, but the complaints are valid. The venting to a low-level convention worker is what I can't tolerate. Those guys have no power to take any executive actions or make any changes in the company, they just have to stand there and take it. The workers are a captive audience who have to put on their best face. Might as well berate the McDonalds cashier for not serving breakfast after 11:00. It takes a lot of energy to work those shows. The last thing they need is for someone to deflate them with a bunch of general criticisms about their company at the start of a long weekend show. It shows a lack of normal human empathy and respect.
