Always a helpful group in this forum. I remember going to the theater opening night(old as dirt/young at heart) for Batman and there was a make shift gift shop set up in the lobby full of Batman merch. I just had to have that book and 5 bucks was a high price for a kid. I paid gladly and still have it. Probably not a 9.9 much less a 9.8 but it should still do well. CBCS cases make books look good regardless of value or grade. I'm happy to hear they can accommodate this format. Again thanks

@JSGM Its our pleasure! Welcome to the forum and we hope you stick around.

I agree with you on CBCS cases
..best in the biz in my opinion. I currently have 16 books at CBCS and really look forward to getting them back.

Sometimes it's not the value of the book monetarily it's the emotions they evoke that mean the most.

Exactly on both replies. The case is excellent for actual comic fans (no disrespect to collectors) and fans of art or those that possess that incurable nostalgic itch. The case is clean and simple, Almost museum worthy with the focus primarily on the book itself. It is perfect for classic covers or favorite covers and there are no issues with encapsulation, no newton rings that I've experienced. Not to mention that the case is solid as a rock. I have a lot of books from the other company and I submit to both in the future but the superior case is definitely this company. Low grade, high grade, Young Blood #1 or Amazing Fantasy 15, it's gonna look good in there. Also the forum is fun as well. Even the arguments..ha

@JSGM in general: https://www.cbcscomics.com/grading-certification-process

CBCS grades mainstream comic books that will fit into our holder. The maximum size is 7.625" x 10.5" and .24" thick.

There may be exceptions for comics that are unusually heavy, even though they may fit into the size parameters. These are determined on a case-by-case basis.

hey all, my order is in processing but i have to change my card due to fraud. will the new card number be used to pay? also I asked for the 2 2day modern coupons. will the amount be adjusted?

COLLECTOR dielinfinite private msg quote post Address this user
send an email to customer service regarding the issues and they should be able to sort it out. Definitely let them know you would like to change the card on the invoice and that you are asking to use the coupons. The latter should be taken care of automatically but it never hurts to reiterate it

Are standard tpb size books too fat for CBCs cases? Thanos quest has been slabbed but that might be thinner.

.24” thick is plenty thick.

@PJsStudio TPBs vary quite a bit so I’m not sure there is a “standard.” By my quick measurements, a tpb containing maybe 3 issues, roughly the size of a 100 pg giant-size comic, would fit a CBCS holder but nothing much bigger.

Collector JSGM private msg quote post Address this user
True, the tpb format does vary throughout the years. The standard Marvel trade of the early 2000s couldn't possibly fit. This forum is very knowledgeable and helpful, so they probably know the answer when given the details.
So..without completely high jacking the thread, does anyone know if the Miracle Man:A Dream of Flying vol 1 tpd fit in a CBCS case? I believe it's close to the size of a prestige Format book.
Man, that thing used to be a big deal before Marvel got it's sticking Mickey fingers on it. Still love it though so any info would be appreciated. Godspeed all.

Thanks Bronte. I think C$C could do it but that really grinds my gears.

@JSGM
Understood. The only reason I mentioned it was because I think the book is too fat to be encased in general. Either that of nobody has tried it... which I kinda doubt. People try to encase everything from what I've seen....

@Bronte I don’t think it fits in a CBCS holder.

By my measurements, Mockingbird vol 2 at 112 pages might just barely fit but A Dream of Flying is 128 pages

Hi everyone,

I have a few questions about grading. The prices and tiers are a bit confusing to me. I just wanted to clarify a few things and really appreciate your patience with me on this.

I would like to submit a comic to get the signature verified, from what I understand is that it costs $25 for each signature per comic even if they are from the same artist, and $15 for an additional signature on the same comic.

Here is the dumb question, does the $25 also include the slab?

Also, if I get a comic pressed, does it reflect that it has been pressed on the slab?

Lastly, I haven't seen that they do card slabs, but do they verify signatures on cards?

Really appreciate this.

Thanks

No, grading fees are separate, UNLESS you select the Slab-Only option. Slab-only costs $20, the book gets slabbed, and they verify one signature (subsequent signatures are $15), but the book does not get graded

No, the pressing and grading services are separate. Graders shouldn’t know which books have been pressed, and if done correctly, you shouldn’t be able to tell that a book has been pressed.

CBCS does not verify signatures themselves. All the signatures are verified by their parent company, Beckett. Beckett DOES grade AND verify signatures on trading cards

I recently purchased a comic that has two sigs. CGC SS. The original owner says it's never been pressed so there's a chance for an uptick in grade. I want to send it here to CBCS. If I'm understanding correctly I send it in as normal. (I would opt for quick press and fast pass) and Add verified? It was graded by CGC within the last 6 months.

COLLECTOR dielinfinite private msg quote post Address this user
@JGRNOT Send it in as normal, select your grading tier and your pressing options, but select AUTHENTIC Signature, not Verified. CBCS honors CGC yellow label signatures so that will carry over directly from the previous label

It doesn’t matter how long ago cgc graded the book

Also, please be aware the current turnaround times as even with quick press and fast pass on standard tiers you’re looking at about a one year wait

Collector Superbud private msg quote post Address this user
I’ve entered my comics through the CBCS Canadian portal and I can’t help feeling that I’m not doing it correctly. The reason being that I am trying to grade & slab my PC comics for the least cost, however, when I inputted these same comics for grading only on CGC’s site (while shopping for lowest costs) each book was $117 USD compared to $40 Cdn each.
Hoping someone can tell me if this looks like I’ve made a mistake or if CBCS’ prices are this substantially lower for the same services.
Here’s a pic of my CBCS submission form.

@Superbud I think those comics would typically be Quickstream and Rapid level for CBCS, but I don't think you can do Quickstream or Rapid if you send through the Canadian portal. So I'm guessing they're defaulting to a slower and cheaper tier. Is there a tier name, like Expanded, on your form anywhere?

If you send them straight to Dallas for the proper tier it would still be cheaper with CBCS (at least if you get them in before the new tiers and prices start on the 6th). Quickstream is $50ish and Rapid is $80ish while CGC's Standard is $80 and Express is $130.

@xkonk Canada has a different tier structure so a pre-1975 book valued up to $2000 CDN should qualify for the $40 Vintage tier, assuming he’s going for cheapest over fastest


@Superbud I think your order form looks correct for submitting through the Canadian portal. Just remember to expect significant delays on top of the already significant turnaround times.

One reason the price might be so different could be that the USA submission page might default to a more expensive grading tier not necessarily the cheapest that can accept an FMV that high

If I knew the Canadian tiers were that different I'd consider sending some books through Canada!
