@ATComicCollector

My oldest order was received on December 22, 2021, so your post gives me hope.

Thanks for posting.

So I'm guessing there's still some kinks to be worked out on that end, especially as my Feb 2022 order says it's in the "Production and Processing" stage but I've had no emails about it.


Update to my order 2021 order above. It entered heat seal yesterday and went into shipping today. The Tracker is correct now for the order as well. So TAT for the order was about 10 months from when they marked it received.


Last update -- just received confirmation that the books shipped today. Nothing too exciting, just some books I wanted to be able to display. I'll post pics once they arrive.

It's been approximately 211 business days since my submission was received. Now, let's hope they are actually shipped out in a timely manner.


That is good news, congrats! Were they standard grade without pressing? I have an invoice of books there since December 4, 2021, no pressing either, all modern tier, so those I would assume should be done if they process in the order received.

I have one order - 21-360B1D1 - of 210 modern pre-screens submitted on 9/26/2021 that is now in Billing so should be shipped within a week.

However I have another order - 21-2F2FAA9 - of 270 modern pre-screens submitted on 8/23/2021 that is still in Heatseal and has been for four months.

Kind of strange that a "younger" order of the same quantity magnitude is processed before the "older" one especially since the "older" one was in Grading and Heatseal several months before the "younger" one.

I still have a ton of books on other orders and asked CS to cancel them back at the first of September and other than a rep calling me to confirm that's what I want and the regional rep emailing me, I have heard crickets. Guess I'll have to get back on that horse again...

Well so much for them processing in order of when they received. 28 books at CBCS 12/4/21, modern, no pressing, standard grading, still shows in processing. Congrats though on your book shipping hopefully you got yourself the grade you wanted, or higher.

Sadly, size matters. The smaller the order, the faster it moves.

I think it's just a matter of the smaller stuff getting sifted out faster. That's the only thing that makes any sense to me having witnessed it first hand with our own orders.

This is absolutely correct. I imagine they look at it as a way of minimizing ticked off customers.

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 August of 2022.

Another submission just reverted from HeatSeal to Grading, so my guess it goes to "Shipping" in a day or so plus some other updates in Bold below. And, as I mentioned yesterday in the Pressing thread, the last of my submissions that were delivered to CBCS on June 8th, 2021 has been completed.
That was the longest of my 2021 submissions with a combined Pressing & Grading TAT of 71 1/2 weeks or 343 Business. Color me skeptical, but I do believe that the stated non-express TATs are errantly calculated on a 7 day work week or they are purposefully inflated.

EDIT 1/2 6:30am - As predicted the submission that was reverted back to grading yesterday is now marked as Completed.

Delivered to CBCS on June 8th 2021 in two separate boxes. (All standard, w/out any FAST P's and one with VSP added).

5 of the 11 had press completed within 43wks,

Another submission just reverted from HeatSeal to Grading, so my guess it goes to "Shipping" in a day or so plus some other updates in Bold below.

Delivered to CBCS on June 8th 2021 in two separate boxes. (All standard, w/out any FAST P's and one with VSP added).

5 of the 11 had press completed within 43wks,
1 of the 11 had press completed in 44wks,
1 of the 11 had press completed in 45wks,
1 of the 11 had press completed in 49wks,
1 of the 11 had press completed in <50wks,
1 of the 11 had press completed in <52wks.
1 of the 11 likely had press completed in ~52wks

Submitted a modern set (w/pressing) to both CGC and CBCS on the same day in March 2022 (no fast pass) The CGC books are graded, and have shipped as of yesterday. CBCS still processing, and nobody will respond to any emails. Pretty much all I need to know.

If the printable invoice for my order previously stated "Pressing" and now just says "Received" does that mean that my book has finished pressing and should be on its way to the grading queue?

The order was created late November 2021.

@Dart1146 - Could be. Sometimes when the submission is moving between stages, I have seen oddities like that. The most common invoice change I see is moving from HeatSeal back to Grading within a day of so of moving to shipping.

@Nearmint67 Will do, just 2 books though as I am just a small collector who collects cool covers and George Perez books more than anything. The exciting one is a Tomb of Dracula 10 that I picked up in 2010ish and the other is a New Suicide Squad: Futures End #1.
