Not sure. Could be a typo. It seems maybe a short for “some”? Try making a new thread and pitching it to the rest of the board

I know the offices are moving to Plano. Are submissions still being sent to McEwen address or elsewhere?

COLLECTOR dielinfinite private msg quote post Address this user
@JGRNOT I haven’t heard anything about CBCS moving but continue sending the books to the current address until they announce that you should do otherwise

Any advice to getting Support to respond to my address change request? I've tried calling and emailing multiple times without any response, and I just got notification that my books are being graded. I've moved since I submitted them last November, but I'm at a complete loss as to how to get this updated so they don't ship to the wrong address and I lose my books (and money)Any help would be amazing.

@agedkindling I would definitely start with changing your address on your CBCS account.

Then email Darryl at

Log on to fed ex if that's how they will be shipped back to you.
When you get a tracking number you can go to your fed ex account and change delivery location.

Hey there I'm having the same problem where I am moving in a week and they just informed me my books are being graded too. I was wondering if anyone has an idea on how long it takes cbcs to update the address for the book after sending a support request.

I want to submit a bunch of books, a few of which will be express and the rest will be regular speed. Am I correct in thinking the express books will only be sent back when the regular books are finished? Do I have to submit 2 separate orders if I want the express books back within 2 weeks? Thanks.

Welcome to the forum. If you are sure you want to spend the extra cash for express,
Do two separate submissions, otherwise, you will waste your money for express.

Recommendation, if you want a 9.8, and you are not sure how to grade, do the grade pre-screen.
Doing this will ensure you don't spend a high price for something that is not a 9.8.
And, you won't have to pay the grading fee until the book actually gets graded.
I always pre-screen the grades on my books.

Sometimes they get rejected and you pay a small fee like 4 or 5 bucks, but I would rather pay that than have a book come back 8.0 that I thought was a 9.4.

If the viagra is working you should be well over a 9.8. xkonk private msg quote post Address this user
@bw327 You should definitely do two separate orders but you can send them in the same box if that would make your life easier. They'll open the box quickly and see you have express stuff, you won't lose any time.

@bw327 I believe the online submission form won’t even let you submit an order with both express and non-express books. If you add Express it will apply it to every book in the order automatically

Hey there,

Dumb Noob question, but I couldn't find the answer in this thread which seemed to be the place to look.

What are the steps on processing that will show up on the invoice?
I see pressing, grading and heat seal on my invoices so far.
Is heat seal the last step? Will next be shipping and the grades will appear on the invoice?
I'm not impatient, anticipation is half the joy of getting books slabbed, but I'm new to CBCS and not sure what steps to anticipate.

Collector Nearmint67 private msg quote post Address this user
@Paul_G Hey Paul, you are very close with heat seal. You might see it go back to grading one more time before it is ready to ship. Not sure why they do that, but it happens.
But generally speaking you are within 1 to 2 months of your books shipping, unless you used express.
Look in the TAT thread and Pressing thread. There are plenty of updates there regualarly.

Is there a way I can see what a CBCS label says about a certain issue? For example if the issue is a first appearance or anything like that?

Yes, if you Google search the issue and add CBCS to it, you should be able to pull up the labels.

Thanks. I figured there was some fancy way to do it on this site that I was somehow missing.

So I sent in my first ever books with Signatures for verification. I just saw they are going into heat seal, so yay.

I also saw 2 were rejected (Stan Lee, go figure, that's what I get for trusting COAs I guess?)

My question: I had checked "do not encapsulate if rejected" Does that mean I'll get a refund on the two that were rejected? I'm hoping so, but I realize it doesn't really state that anywhere. I understand the verification charge will stand, but I'm wondering about the rest.

COLLECTOR dielinfinite private msg quote post Address this user
If you were billed for grading on the books that failed verification then yes, you should get a refund on the grading fees. If you don’t see that after you’ve received the books then contact the billing department.

Also, just because the signatures failed verification does not mean they are fake. Stan Lee’s signature in general is infamous for failing verification as it varies significantly, especially in his final years

Collector Paul_G private msg quote post Address this user
Thanks I'll keep an eye out.
I have a bunch of Stan Lee sigs, but since most of them I got in the 80s I have no trail at all.
I thought the COA would be more successful, but I know nothing.

@Paul_G they don't take anything into account when verifying signatures except for the signature itself. COAs, photos of the person signing a book, none of it matters.

Collector Paul_G private msg quote post Address this user
I know they don't look at the COA when verifying, I just meant I feel they should be a little more reliable and likely to pass than random signed comics on EBay.

All good on the billing front, the total was adjusted.

I thought they'd post the grades on the dashboard, but I guess that happens later? (They are now marked as "Shipping"
