Amazing spider-man #360 (got as a gift here. never took it out of bag/board. last comic I graded from him got a 9.2 and of same age)

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Last Ronin Lost Years #1 director's cut short box con variant (did read but has been in bag/board since. bought from short box themselves at heroes con in 2023)

Ultimate Fallout #4 Facsmile (bought from a member here. I haven't touched)

Batman Adventures Continue #8 (untouched, comic store had it bagged/board in back issues box)

so hopefully grades are great but they all looked pretty good. grade is fine as long as it looks good in slab

Submitted June 14, 2024
Received around June 21, 2024
Hit grading table: July 10, 2024
I assume is getting sealed or at least labels made: July 12, 2024 (tracker says grading part is done)

Cool! If you can, consider putting in another book or two to reduce the average shipping cost per book. Me, being from Canada, the cost of shipping to the US is significant so I'm always considering shipping costs....maybe for you being in the US its not as big an issue.

It's not an issue but I'm doing one book at a time because I'm feeling the financial burden of our recent family vacation so I don't want to go bananas on grading books lol.

Submitted three books for the VSP Promo.

Dropped off in Vegas on 4/26

Received 5/13
Pressing 5/24

As of June 28, they went back to "Received" on my invoice.

I'm guessing the signatures are being reviewed still or convention season has caused a slight delay.

That's how you can tell pressing is complete, they go back to received until moved to grading.

@GAC YA know what, I don't think I'm going to do that. This is the book I was going to send here but the spine damage is way to great that I don't believe it's worth the case cost. I actually had to buy another one...😪

This was one of the EGS books I was talking about. I feel that might be on them...sigh.

Going back to received is just a "lay over". They are most likely in line to be graded.
Grading is taking 3 weeks-ish...
So in a week or so your invoice should say grading...

could be wrong on dates except last one. might not even be shipped but is being ready to be (says shipping). sealing could be wrong on the date there was a change and the 2nd of the 3 status was checked.

I'm just waiting to see what the grades are. Hopefully good. 3 of them I never took out of bag/board. But one of those is from 90s so not likely a 9.8, has that spine thing where part of the back shows up (don't know if it affects grade), 1 was bought from a store but they keep new issues unbagged/boarded till they go into a back issue box (its newish) and the third...bought from someone here. they had in a bag/board from when it was bought but don't know if they read, looked at it, etc.

the only one I read, took out once...read...put back in sleeve with the rest of the "grade eventually" comics
