Is a change from grading to billing a good thing? Was shocked to see the additional amount I need to Shell out but I'm sure I'll be happy with the end result.

@dameki that is a good problem. It means something graded higher than you valued it at. Your investment is worth more and moved up a tier.

Finally received the delivery notice today. Had my book since Heroes in June. To be fair I got the sig verification and the pressing, but I did also do fast pass.

@dameki had this happen to me as well. It's a great thing. Had valued a 1947 #1 book I had picked insured value 250.00 under expanded tier, we'll it came back 9.8 which is worth around 2k, so they charged a little more. Not sure if it's an insurance policy thing or just a FMV thing, but either way for a few bucks more it was all good to have a surprise 9.8.

Pre-Screen Modern stack shipped to CBCS on 6/20 - so probably received the beginning of the week of 6/25 - was changed from "Received" to "Grading" six days ago but just got the grading email yesterday.

I've been looking at the featured comics every day hoping to see one or two of mine make it there in anticipation of getting them back. I'm super excited because this is my first ever submission.

So what about the reverse?? What if you thought it was a 2K book but there was something you missed and it was only $250..would you get a refund??

I think the comic I was most concerned about had the signature verified. Amazing Spiderman #317 signed by Todd McFarlane on the bottom of page one. Got it off of eBay back in 2007 for $50 along with #316 so I'm pretty stoked about that.

Even though I found out over the phone and email that my order was moving, my dashboard has now changed to "grading" on the front dashboard and the invoice now says "labels" what a time to be alive.

Getting excited now. Does the insured value on the invoice give you an idea on the grade or is those values just FMV?


@KatKomics I think CBCS ships with fedex so we're both safe from the good old Canadian postal service.

I just got the shipping email for a fast pass press/grade (all modern) from 10/3. That's only like 9 weeks instead of 13 so that's pretty good.

I had a book with a press that was received May 9th and it went into grading last week so yours should do the same soon.

Well I have two orders that were in shipping status. Now both orders are showing "completed" on my order history. Sadly, I have only recieved one email stating one of the two orders showing shipped with a tracking number.

Now I have no clue were my second order is, if it was actually shipped or not, if so to where as I have no tracking number.

Sick part is, they show both orders are "completed" meaning they are done with orders on their end. What if it never shows up? To them it shows "completed." What recourse would I have? Since I have no email showing shipped or proof of tracking it was shipped.

maybe they got shipped together? Either way it seems they're starting to slowly but surely get caught back up, just got a shipping email for mine yesterday(amazing lv 6/30).... now if only I could see the grade on my dashboard lol

I just got my email from CBCS that my order is completed and ready to be shipped! So about 12 weeks for VSP/Fastpass

It varies widely. I received notification from CBCS that one of my orders went to grading on 10/18. My Dashboard still shows grading, but my invoice has shown labels since I got that notice. Still waiting for that shipping designation.

So do we have any idea on TAT for things like Modern w/ FP or Expanded w/ FP both without pressing?
From what I've gathered the bigger delays are in pressing/no FP, but I'm not positive on that.

Not impatient at all, just curious about the current state of things.

Pre-Screen modern received week of June 25 went from Grading to QC yesterday (Thursday).

Got my tracking # last night and my grading info, after my books changed to grading everything went pretty quickly. Probably took a week after that to go to shipping.

Books were dropped off at NFCC on June 4th and my expected arrival date is next thursday.

Pretty bummed with 1 of my grades but obviously thats no fault of CBCS, thats just me being bummed about it.

It was my first time doing grading so I only dropped off 4 books

DC comics presents 26 - got a 7.0 (bummed)
DC comics presents 47 - 8.5
Transformers #1 - 9.4
Omega men # 3 - 9.4


I'll make my final decision when I get my books back but this experience of long delays probably hasn't deterred me away fom submitting again but I will probably wait until the TATS are better or submit again at NFCC if they're there.

I'm out of town now, but my book arrived today. It was well over 22 weeks from start to finish, and the journey began as very frustrating. Had to arrange to have someone at the house because I didn't know until I got the shipping notification that a signature was required...

Despite these frustrations, there were only a few times CBCS was not reachable, and in those instances, a second or third try got me through to a customer service rep.

All in all, I have few complaints. Jake and Lisa in particular deserve a shout out for always answering my questions in a quick and informative manner.

Now to get my next batch ready for submission - but I think I'll do Fast Pass on this bunch so I'm waiting a little less.

Thank you CBCS - and for those of you who are still frustrated, don't worry. I have confidence that you'll eventually have a smile on your face too. It's just the wait that's a killer.

For those of you who are curious - my Conan #1 came back as a 4.5. It's low grade, but I'm not complaining, given that I picked up a lot containing #1-8 for a song and dance. This graded issue paid for all eight issues.

I got my shipping and grades today. Happy about most of the grades disappointed with my ASM #300 and Venom Lethal Protector. Submitted fast press and fast press on 9/27. I'm extremely delighted that my Secret Wars 8 got a 9.8.
