Color me impressed... Despite the wait - all the reasons we knew about and no concerns, I'm really happy with the customer service, and OH MY GOD the packaging... Seriously. Long history in freight here, so it's nice to see things done right. No fear of things getting damaged in transit with the excellent packaging.

Anywho... three boxes in the big box to go through. Obviously, I knew what I was getting, but it's still a giddy feeling to get them back in person. I've been collecting for decades, know my grades fairly well, so it was nice to see my personal collection has stood up fairly well (no pressing / cleaning). This was just my "tester" batch with CBCS. Things came up well!

Anyway, so take a looksie at some pics... I won't bore you with the details...

Very nice. Great variety of books, and great results! I didn't realize 'Tec 850 was heating up a little.

I've never seen that IZombie variant. Love it!

Yeah, the Detective 850, I had no clue on... I've had it sitting around and someone told me about it. As for the iZombie, I LOVE the cover. I saw it behind the counter at a comic shop when the book came out and had to get it.

Next submission in the works now is mostly witnessed signatures from SDCC. That will be fun!

Nice books. I especially like black/dark covers that grade 9.8 by CBCS. Gotta get me one of those Harley Quinn's.

@Jakernaught
I was VERY happy the ASM came back 9.8... I knew it was going to be 9.6 or 9.8... Didn't SEE anything that would ding it, but you never know.

@conditionfreak
On the BM Harley, I know what you mean on the black covers... I have two copies of the SpiderMan 9/11 tribute haunting me. One of them will grade high-ish and the other has some weird residue on it. I'm tempted to send them for press an clean, but I'm also tempted to hold for a good sig opportunity. I keep having Stan opportunities, but my last one went to Hulk 181 and Uncanny 101 (waiting for those to come back). Also have this little pipe dream of getting the Romita's to sign one or something. But, you know, that's $$$ I don't have to toss around right now. :P

The glares don't do these things justice... I know I can do better on the pics, but I was on a lunch break.

@Deadpoolica and @Thanatos

Thanks! I have a lot of books I WANT to get graded, but this was the first batch I felt needed to get done. Out of 40-ish long boxes (more if I properly packed, I'm sure), I've gone through several times to see what I want to grade out of there (a couple of long boxes worth, ha ha). I'm always afraid to screw up runs, though, so I tend to pull out doubles in many cases or books I have trades of as well. Not always, but frequently. As I go through one of my big loves, Uncanny X-Men, I notice my early collection (where I started in 1986), I just want to buy slabbed copies in acceptable grades of certain issues, because mine just don't stack up in a lot of cases. What does an 11-year-old know about keeping comics in mint condition?

Thanks for sharing. Love the Batgirl #1 cover and of course the Harley Quinn. Just dropped my first dozen books off to CBCS at the NY Comic Con. Hoping I get close to the same results you got. Nuff Said!
