Phoenix comicon 2018 May 24-277620

Collector Guy private msg quote post Address this user
I thought this may be a good way to get an idea of when our books will be done.

If you submitted books at the phx comicon back in May, please update this thread with your status, and when your status changes. My books just show “received” as of July 5th.

Thanks all.

Get this my friend..


from ASIA-CON, July 27-29, 2018
2 books modern - no fast pass. Received august 22 - Status right now in GRADING


Phoenix Comicon, May 24-27
38 books modern - no fast pass. received July 4 - Status shows as Received.

I didn't make my payment for the Asia Con books till this past Friday. Go figure.
The Phoenix Comicon batch must have been put on the back burner. :/

Also, I need to call customer service because the signatures on some of my Phoenix books showed up wrong on the printed invoice.

It's saying Adi Granov signed certain books that I am positive I had Arthur Adams sign.
Lots of those books submitted were Captain Marvel - Ms Marvel books.

Some will have a duel signature but I'm scared because it was an adi Granov variant or Art Adams variant that was a 9.8 that was signed by Kelly Sue D. I took a roll of the dice getting it cracked open for a Granov or Adams signature. I'm hoping I don't drop a grade.

I'm hoping to buy a good press by the end of the year though..

Invoice was updated today. all books are listed as "labels" with the 1 "expanded" book still showing as just "received" ... not sure why, it's an older book and maybe you need a more experienced grader?

This isn't acceptable.

I'm sorry.

It's just not competitive.

Both these turnaround times are too long, but the Phoenix one is just unremarkable.


...

Look, we all understand that CBCS has had to do some overhauls, the move... all these reasons.
So then, what are the USUAL turnaround times?

If we lived in the perfect scenario, if you dropped off standard Modern books, how long can you expect your books back? 3 months? 6 months? What's CBCS' expectations?

I don’t know what’s normal. This is the first time I’ve submitted books. To be honest, I asked to cbcs guy that took my books how long it took and he said 12 weeks max. He also failed to mention the move to Dallas. I think the amount of customers and business cbcs is loosing because of this sucks, because the value of my graded books will go down when they go under.

Although that would be a major fear of mine as well, CBCS was just acquired by big time company Beckett... so rest assured, you should be safe.

I'm green with envy. Here's hoping you get the grades you're looking for and that my books see similar momentum soon.

Mine were in grading 2 weeks and now have been in labels for 3 weeks. Maybe they need more that 1 label printers...

Finally updated to grading today. What's odd is my modern books show grading, but my two quick stream still show received.

Congrats on the shipping!!

I have no idea how this company works, haha. I feel like they just have a giant warehouse with comics all over the floor and they just randomly pick some up to grade/label/ship. I'm trying to figure out how @Gabriel85301 went to shipping today, when my books were graded and then labels before @Gabriel85301 even went to grading... Hopefully I get a notice soon, 5 weeks in labels is not cool.

What is funny was, the week was after October 5, I had 2 books, no fast pass from Asia-Con that was received on AUGUST 22, and it was in GRADING, is still in grading.

While my Phoenix Comicon books (38 of them), was received on July 4 were showing as received.


I didn't make my payment for the Asia Con books till October 5 and they were in grading BEFORE my Phoenix Comicon books. How come I am still waiting on those to be shipped if they were in grading WAY BEFORE the PHXCC hit grading?

Oh well.. my books will be here soon

When CBCS was in Florida, I'd get them shipped on Monday and have to wait till Friday to get them, but now I get them in within 2 days of getting a tracking number.
