  1. How long ago? Would love to hear from an insider on how they handle disagreements on grades between so many different graders/opinions and how often that happens. For example One guy at 6.5 another at 4.5 etc., how do you reconcile those big swings?
  2. They have had hundreds of different graders (if not more). Remember they have high turnover in what I hear is a very demanding and high pressure/stressful job. Would love to see how you know/where advertised they only have 20 graders at this point in time though. I have been led to believe it is far more than 20 by some others on the boards.
  3. Hey never worked with kelleysuperheroes but comickeys is a name that sounds familiar. If its the same guy, I remember getting outbid by him on a lower grade TEC 38 (restored 1st Robin) at Heritage in the very last second and being so pissed. How do I know who it was? He broke open the slab to sell it as raw in a higher estimated grade on ebay and only said he was not sure if it had resto or something misleading like that. He sold it for far more on ebay being dishonest and I missed out on my last chance to own a TEC 38 from a HA auction that I should have won for a reasonable price. (litera
  4. Your best bet is to resubmit if you don't like the grade, they have hundreds of graders and a +/- full grade is not uncommon. Nobody can grade or even ball park anything from that kind of scan and angle, so don't ask our opinion without a close up front and back. FYI, it is impossible to complain to CGC about grading issues. I had several strong issues in my opinion and their textbook response is essentially... we are CGC with our own internal grading standards, go pound sand. Resubmitting a green label with missing centerfold and asking specifically for another green label qualified gr
  5. The front shows well! Other than the tape on the back spine, what are all those other stains on the back cover?
  6. Nice pick up! That's a heck of a lot better copy than you can get for 1K with no restoration. Now you can leave it as is, remove the resto or do some pro resto to make it look really nice and be in a good spot value wise either way!
  7. Thor #5 NM+ 1st Cosmic Thor/Black Winter Herlad of Galactus! Hard to find 3rd printing with the best cover! $6 (Raw shipping just $3.50), #6 NM+ $9 1st Print (Donny Cates Black Winter & Cosmic Thor!) Razor sharp, Hand picked off the shelf, I would guess at least 9.6, but I would not be surprised if either got a 9.8 from CGC.
  8. AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #20 CGC .5 missing ad page 16 (Does Not affect story). Intro and Origin the Scorpion! Could have been an easy green label 3.0+ with that same note I believe. One in this exact same grade and missing page just sold for $200 (probably didn't look nearly this nice) and a 1.5 just sold for $375! Board Price discount just $190. I can't and won't advertise these here per policy, but I just got back a restored mid grade Hulk 1 and FF 1 in a different slab (look absolutely high grade). Please PM me (and ONLY PM) if you are interested in discussing your love of these 2 ult
  9. Fantastic Four #50 2nd Galactus, 3rd Silver Surfer, Could be 7.0 if not for being subscription copy (back cover looks 8.0!), Textbook 5.0 all day long by CGC standards forb subscription copies, on occasion they go CGC 5.5 when the rest of the book is really nice like this. 90 day 5.0 GPA is $304 Board Price $269 for a full $35 below conservative grade 5.0 GPA, hurry and jump on this before I send it in for grading in the next few days!
