My First Ever CGC Submission!

So I finally made my first ever submission to CGC! I am excited and hopefully these will be back to me by June. Here is a list of the books submitted, along with reasons why I submitted it! I also did a video showcasing the books and my grade estimates. 

Book 1: X-Men #101. Anticipated grade after a press is 7.0. I would be fine with a 6.5 and elated with anything higher. I am getting this one pressed because it is a great cover and a book that I MAY sell one day.

Book 2: Ms Marvel #18. Anticipated grade after a press is 9.0-9.2. I am curious how high this one can go as it is very clean and this is part of the reason I am submitting it is to see how nice it really is.

Book 3: Incredible Hulk #340. Anticipated Grade is 9.4. I would be fine with 9.2 but this one is sharp and was not recommended to be pressed so I feel it also has a shot at being higher. Great cover and once that displays better than it reads so that is why I am slabbing it. 

Book 4: Amazing Spider-Man #238. Has the tatooz! After a press, anticipating a 7.0-7.5. I would be thrilled with higher. Just a great Spidey book and cover I love!

Book 5: Amazing Spider-Man #300. 9.0-9.2 anticipated grade. This would be a joy to get in 9.4 but I am not betting on that. Again, another great higher grade Spidey that I felt should be slabbed.

Book 6: Amazing Spider-Man Annual #16. Anticipated 9.0 after a press. MAY consider selling if it climbs to a certain point, otherwise a cool cover of a character I am excited to see in the future MCU.

Book 7: Amazing Spider-Man #361. Anticipated 8.5. Was not recommended for pressing. Very curious where this falls. 8.0 would be fine, lower would be sad. Higher would be fantastic. Again, another book I have had a while now and figured it should be slabbed.

Book 8: Amazing Spider-Man #252. Anticipated 7.0-7.5. Love the cover and a great one to display. 

Book 9: Amazing Spider-Man #316. Anticipated 8.5 after press. Has the MJ insert and is one of 2 that I know of to exist. Excited to see if it grades higher, if not a cool book and great one to display!

Book 10: Spawn #1 Newsstand. Anticipated 9.2-9.4. Another one I am curious to see if higher happens and one that I may sell if it hits this grade or better as I do have a regular Spawn #1 and for me, the sale could go towards some much better stuff!

Book 11: Daredevil #1. Anticipated 1.0. Real rough but I have to slab it. Anything higher would be a joy!

 

I will follow up when they return to see how terrible my guesses were! I am anticipating some disappointments but also hoping for a surprise or two!

Is this a newsstand? Slabbing a regular 9.2 may not make economic sense.

 your first submission is awesome and you have a lot of great books coming back !  you put a lot of time and effort into it so here is the way to get the most enjoyment out of it  trust me !

when they are all done graded DO NOT look at the grades on-line , that would ruin all your time and effort with a 15 second glance and also just because you have an on-line grade you don't want to count your chickens before you have received the comics in you house and in your living room to unbox !

when you get your CGC comics home delay the gratification by only looking at one or two per day , do this by reaching into the box and pulling out a random comic , and before you look at the grade , cover up the grade and admire the CGC comic in its sweet new case ! and the exaine both front and back and try and guess the grade before you reveal it to yourself ... to extend the pleasure even more , give yourself some time to reflect upon the anticipated grade before the reveal .

with your 11 book submission you can get a full week of comic book pleasure , full of anticipation !!!! trust me you will appreciate it so much more if you do it this way instead of impatiently looking at the grades right off the bat

i bet your DD #1 is going to look great in the slab.........

Thanks!

And yes I plan on not viewing anything until they are returned. Partially because this is what I would do anyway but mainly because I sent them to @thirdgreenhamand he graciously pressed and submitted! So I won’t know until they are on my doorstep!!!!

Also, my friend submitted his GI Joe 21 (a Canadian price copy) and ASM 210 so when the books are back we plan on having a physically distanced reveal party in the garage (and maybe a few celebratory pops!)
