Warped Label Inside Case7678

@Despain - Compare the height of that comic to another modern comic in a CBCS slab. See if they are approximately the same.

Ok, here are pictures of the slab as they are shown on instagram for the giveaway. Can someone explain to me how this label being "warped" is in any way, shape or form the fault of CBCS??? It sure looks like something happened in shipping to me.

@esaravo I compared it to my New Mutants 98. They are the same.

@Jesse_O Obviously I've seen that picture too, so from that angle the label looks more flat. So, I don't know what happened. When I received the package, the slab was securely packed with bubble wrap and other packing materials -- no damaged to the box at all. I highly doubt that a blow to the bottom of the case caused the label to get jammed up and warp during transit. But if simply getting shaken during transit, that seems like a design flaw in the case.


Anyway, I received an email from customer service, and they said they aren't going to do anything about it. They told me to send it in, and they would reslab it for me for a reholder fee. It is not worth the cost with as much as the shipping charge is for one book. So I guess there's no need to discuss this further.

after seeing the "before" label this is not CBCSs issue. The slab obviously left their facility and arrived at the original owners house in an acceptable state. Anything that happens to the case afterward is the responsibility of the owner.

Maybe try to tap the holder and it might slide back down. Just a thought.

Thanks. Yeah, I tried shake it down but no luck. The label is in Mylar also, so it's pretty much stuck. I think the only way to fix it would be crack open the slab and put a new label in there.

I don't know the history of the book / slab since I wasn't the one who had it graded. For all I know it could've been dropped by the original owner or maybe even by USPS. But there are no cracks on the outer slab at all. It is what it is.

I'm just going to leave it alone because it's just not worth the cost of sending it to CBCS for a reslab.

Thanks for the suggestion, Homer. I really do appreciate you trying to help.
