I'll take a wait and see approach.

BTW completely random thought but since I used the bgs/psa comparison earlier, think any company will ever offer a set registry for comicbooks? It'd be insane and I don't know how many people would be interested but since for them it's really just maintaining a database it might encourage people to grade books that otherwise would never be graded.

Well then use the service who's cases you like the most. Uniformity is nice and makes it easier to display things. Makes for a more striking visual impact as well.

CGC has a registry.

I thought this was a nice touch.

BACKSIDE VIEW OF LABEL

"At our discretion, we will be using the back of the label for extra information about the comic book that we can’t fit onto the front. In the case of the sample shown, we have listed some story titles that are contained in this book. On rare occasions, we may use some of the space to show additional restoration notes, conservation notes, and/or signatures that might not fit on the front of the label.

Now the cherry on top! On the right side you’ll notice we have a QR Code. You will be able to scan the code with your smart phone and you’ll be taken directly to all the data and information about the book…Including the FREE Grader’s Notes, instantly available to you AT ANY TIME!"

wow....that might be a gamebreaker right there.

Their prices are better and if the service, or turnaround, is better, CBCS might be the one to go with, especially with vintage books where grades are tough already due to age.

Are the slabs silver or white?

No, not Silver, those are just stand in graphics. The slabs are clear like CGC.

They need to hurry up and start taking regular submissions. I have a whole box of books that I want graded and I don't want to wait too much longer.

Looks good. Can't wait. What is the shipping cost? Or is that in the book grading price as well?

No shipping is extra. Don't know yet. As soon as they ship my turtles books I'll know. Unlike CGC, they don't charge me until they ship

I took a quick look at their site and saw 3 magic words that will likely get some people's attention who are disgruntled with CGC...

"Guaranteed Turnaround Times"

sent 11 books to them today, cant wait to see how they turn out. I like that you can specify a minimum grade on the submission form.

It is definitely an attention getter, but here is the fine print:

If an order is shipped later than 4 business days from actual date, you will receive a 2% credit.
If your order is shipped later than 8 business days, you will receive a 4% credit.
If your order is shipped later that 14 business days, you will receive a 5% credit.


*Also, that last line reads 12 business days in the Terms and Conditions so I don't know which one is correct...
