Once corrected, will CBCS send the back to me separately from that order? Or, shipped back with that order?


Only if you put them on a separate order and want to pay extra shipping (as far as I know). Otherwise they'll come back with the rest of your books.

Mistake in slabbing and quality control. If you look around enough you see examples of the wrong label being put with the wrong book, typos, etc. Here they have the wrong color paper.

Nope

True. Makes it hard for those of us who stick up for CBCS when other collectors and comic shop roll-their-eyes in conversations of grading and CGC as the standard.

But lately I'm seeing more and more QA issues with CBCS.
On my last submission, I got a Clone Wars #1 graded at 9.8. Great right?
Except the label doesn't list a single bit of amplifying information. That's right. No mention of the 1st appearance of Ahsoka Tano. I looked up other CBCS graded CW1 slabs, and they did mention the 1st appearance. Are there no standards set for those who process the graded comic and QA the final product?
Like these latest mistakes, it was recommended that I send it back in for correction.
No thanks. Not gonna risk a 9.8 CW1 going through the USPS and reslabbing processing again.

A full week gone by, and nothing from CBCS about this.

Will I be able to see the picture and grade of the 2 Day Modern book while waiting for the other books to be graded?

If they are all on the same order, no. Grader's notes are released once the order has shipped from the CBCS facility.

This seems as good a place to post this as any.
Is there any chance the Gallery can be tweaked a bit so entries can be organized? It's kinda irritating loading a title run and seeing #1,#300, #2, #3, #72, #5, gap, gap, gap, #4, #12, #6...

Bummer- This has been covered somewhere already (wouldn't be surprised if I already asked)?
Looks like Ed's (X-Men run) idea of a thread is the way to go.
