Others have done it so I thought I would join in the fun.
I shipped 4 books off to CBCS.

Flash #139 - Quickstream 2 week turnaround (I'm impatient, couldn't help it.)

Batman New 52 #1 (I selected 2 day Moderns on these books but am having everything shipped together so it appears they will be 2 weeks as well - cheaper for me).
Batman #655
Justice League #31

Books were delivered to CBCS Monday 9/10 at 10:49am.
I will be posting updates as it goes through the pipeline so others can track the 2 week TAT.
Items have not been officially "Received" by CBCS yet so technically the clock has not started....

Yes keep us updated like to see how this works.
Also are you doing any pressing?

No pressing. I know some people will give me a hard time for that, especially for Flash #139. But its only for me, not wanting to flip, and down the road, my son someday.

If everything is on one invoice, the entire invoice will move at the slowest grading tier in terms of return shipping.

Yes, everything is on one invoice. So they all will be 2 weeks.
Whats interesting is that by selected 2-Day Modern, I paid $40 per modern book. But if I selected Quickstream for them, it was going to be $58 per book. So I did the 2 Day and selected them all to ship with the slowest tier (the 2 week Quickstream time from Silver Age Flash).

9/13. As of 3pm CST time. Books have moved.

Status: Grading
Invoice: Submitted (I am guessing that part takes a little longer to update or it stays there until it reaches Labels).

Same day update: Invoice has been updated to Labels. So the updates on the Invoices has a slight delay compared to Status upgrades.

As of 9/17 the order is still in shipping.
I have gotten the completed email from CBCS but haven’t gotten the shipped email yet. I am sure that it will come right after I post this, lol.

9/18 status check.

Status: Shipping
Invoic: Shipping

The grades are not available yet nor has it shipped. I’m sure it will go out in the next day or so. I am not worried.

Be prepared for the possibility of your books arriving anytime at your door right now without actually receiving a shipped notification. It has happened to myself and a number of other members. I also had to contact CBCS to let them know I had the books and ask them to post the graders notes.

Collector JLA555 private msg quote post Address this user
Yup, has happen to me too

That would actually be awesome if that were the case. I have the books shipped to my parents house because my mother is retired and can sign for them during the day. So any surprise shipments are good with me.
Last week I had a 6 week order finish and I got the completed email and less thank 12 hours later the shipment email with fedex tracking. But yes I have heard of boxes showing up while the dashboard still says shipping.

And looking at the whole timeline, this order processed much FASTER than stated TATs.
9/10: Delivered to Dock
9/11: Officially Received by CBCS (Clock starts)
9/13: Order moves into Grading
9/15: Shipping status.

So for a "2 week quickstream" I am very excited and surprised at the speed of this. Books are not in hand yet but still very encouraged by this. Crossing my fingers for good grades.

@billkruser5 - Here’s a thought, it’s faster to grade books that have no defects!

@esaravo - I love this attitude and thought process. Here is to hoping!
