CBCS 101: A Newbie's Guide.9896

I'd like to say I still turned out alright, but that would be a lie. flanders private msg quote post Address this user
@Bronte but what if I don't want it regraded or sent to vsp if it doesn't pass a press screen? I think I've seen in past posts that press screening can take place while the book is still in the slab.

The apple sauce and pudding were the best part... Bronte private msg quote post Address this user
I believe they state its a best effort then if it remains in the case.

But I am curious, why go through the trouble if you aren't going to VSP the book? Personally I would prefer a yellow label over a green one any day....

Edit

I know that when I did pressing via CFP, he did NOT break open cases on a couple of books because he didn't feel he could improve them. I don't know about CBCS policy though.

That's a good question. But unfortunately it's just one of the many mysteries of being a Flanders that I can't answer. I took a good look after receiving it today and I believe it has potential to get an even higher grade than a 9.4, but there's still a fear that it could drop in grade and I'd prefer to have a qualified 9.4 than a verified CBCS 9.2. Maybe I'll just have to give it more time before deciding if I want to take that gamble.

@flanders

Don't feel bad, I make decisions that make me wonder about myself. Regardless, nice book and good luck with whatever you decide to do.

@flanders I have a somewhat similar situation with a Black and White Grendel #1. CGC graded it 9.0 but inside is a Matt Wagner signature and doodle. Since I can't see it without cracking, I'm torn over taking the risk of sending it to CBCS for verification. But it could maybe go to 9.4 if the signature were verified.

@EbayMafia I've convinced myself there's a chance it could get a 9.8, but that's likely crazy talk. I'll give it a couple months and see if my opinion changes.

Ok, I just got emails saying 21-357B651-QS and 21-357B651-RP are in the grading room.
Yay,, I think.
Looking at my invoices, my two submittals are
21-357B651 and 21-357C066.
Is this a mistake or do these change at some time or other?
These are my first two submittals and I am going crazy!
I have all my grails in these two submittals. I need some kind of assurance that I am getting the right comics back

@Lloe01 no mistake, QS stands for Quickstream submission and RP stands for Rapid submission. So basically, your submission has multiple level of comics within.

@Lloe01 - sure, no problem. And, welcome to the forum. Just an FYI, while there is two different TAT's (Turn Around Times) listed for Quickstream and Rapid), because your submission was combined on 1 invoice, you should see the longer of the two Estimated TATs. That the most recent estimated TAT (which is available at the top of the homepage, reflects 4 weeks. Now don't panic if it ends up running a little longer, they are super backed up due to the comic sales speculation market and the fact that cgc was also backed up and raised their prices. But, your higher tier still gets you faster service than Modern, Expanded, and Consumer tiers.

You also mentioned a different submission number. If that was one of the lower tiers, again don't panic if they have not updated you. It may take several weeks to even months before they update your dashboard. They would have already checked in internally but due to the backlog, they may not update the external Dashboard which we see.

When did CBCS receive you submission? Also, please let us know when you get the "Shipped" email and we love Mail Call pictures when you get your grails back.

Cheers

Ok, that’s a relief. They were submitted Sep 23.
The second submittal had Consumer, 2-day modern and expanded tiers.

I called customer service a few weeks ago, because somehow both submittals somehow showed the same comic book (journey into mystery 84) and neither listed my Iron Man 1 (1968).

Customer service said they would send this info to cbcs and the error should be corrected at the time of grading.

I sure hope so.

Thanks again!

@Lloe01 - FYI, just after I responded above, CBCS updated the TAT's. Rapid is not 4-5 weeks and Quickstream is now 10 weeks. If you have pressing for either, the TAT will be doubled for each tier.

Is there anyway to predict when or how or to prevent orders in progress from being deleted from from the browser? I had 44 books in there yesterday and today the entire order is gone.

Missing my Iron Man #1 (1964)
I just sent this to Customer Service:

Hi,

You show Journey into Mystery 84 on 21-357B651-QS. This is incorrect! It should be on invoice 21-357C066.

I submitted my Iron Man #1 (1968) for 21-357B651-QS and it is somehow missing from 21-357B651 and Journey into Mystery 84 is on BOTH 21-357B651 and 21-357C066!

Please tell me what has happened to my Iron Man #1 (1968).

Thank you.
