Shipped to the Wrong Person?5191

It seems what we're complaining about is what's been taken away...9.8 grading notes, low prices and a very high standard in shipping materials/packing.

Not sure if the buyout by Beckett is to blame, but these all seem to have happened around that transition period. Not to say "just accept it", but companies are always looking at ways to keep costs down while taking a few risks and losing a few customers as long as it puts more $$$ in their revenues.

Pay the man. Whatever he wants, just pay it.

Could they be between stages with the inner-boxes? I'm hoping they're simply rebranding the boxes and they'll make a comeback incorporating the Beckett brand.

Just a theory.

All companies and people go through growing pains. We all understand that.

But I still do not like this Beckett aspect. Do I want my cupcakes from the local bakery or from Wal-Mart?

I'll take the former please.

I get the feeling (and it is only speculation based on experience), that a Beckett "business consultant" has entered CBCS and changing things to make a larger profit. That ALWAYS entails cutting frills and corners. Thus you lose the mom and pop store mentality and get the big box store model.

Like I said. I know nothing about what is going on with CBCS, except what I read here and experience in the hobby. I agree with Themaxx35.

Like many here. I am buying CBCS books submitted by others, instead of submitting my own, for the time being. Until things shake out and I see what is what.

Bottom line: I got my books and have decided that I will not be submitting to CBCS again. I have one last submission through Trinity Comics but beyond that I will be going next door for my grading needs.

I've enjoyed the last year-ish with all of you on the forum and will miss all of you but I'm done. I will no longer support a company that has proven to me over the last week that the customer means very little to them. I wish you all the best and feel free to message me if you'd like to keep in contact through other means.

Mahalo and keep on hunting!

Edit: added pictures to help alleviate the sadness of my passing

Spooky.

The original Thanatos was the Greek god of death.

Don't do it! Come back to us!

Hi Steve.

Can you give us any clarification over the packaging issues?

Cheers.
