    We have unpaid interns...

    We have unpaid interns to hold each slab on display.  Since light is bad for comics, they mostly sit in the dark.  Come to think of it, there's probably no good reason we make them hold the slabs above their heads.

  1. graded Or not graded? also toss some prices or ranges you’re willing to pay
  2. The basic logic is that CGC does not verify or recognize signatures that were not witnessed by a CGC witness. You can most likely get it pressed and re-submit it to a non-CGC company if that suits your specific preferences better. The CGC options (contact CGC before submitting to discuss) are getting a green 'qualified' label where they grade the book and ignore the signature, OR a get blue 'universal' label where they count the signature into the grading of the book (they will of course count the sig as a defect). good luck
  3. If the basement stays cool and dry, without extreme temperature changes and only occasional exposure to light, you’re definitely good, certainly until you graduate and move to your adult house. ive has slabs getting more light than that up for years the killer is direct sunlight or other uv comic book shops have slabs up for years with no damage
  4. Just like whoever made Grayson in the 30’s isn’t credited w creating nightwing
  5. let the people know any grade or price preferences you have. good luck
  6. but do you understand that some collectors like to have collectables in a condition as close to how they were originally sold as possible? And presumably you understand why some people want to preserve collectibles so they retain condition. And presumably the you understand the point of having a third party independent grader involved in grading collectable. I get the amount that any of those things matter varies from person to person, and the premium someone will pay for any of those things varies from person to person, but you get why it matters to some collectors right?
  7. I don't think anyone is arguing that there aren't some people left holding the bag at the end, but that doesn't mean there's not a decent amount of profit (with time, effort, a bit of luck) to be made in the middle. That's just the way it is, nothing to be mad about IMO
  8. The answer is ‘no’ but just a bit more unsolicited advice: before wondering if the ‘trim’ makes a comic not worth grading, one should probably consider if the comic would be worth grading independent (Based in issue and grade) of the “trim”, because the “trim” impact might be moot if it wasn’t worth grading to begin with. because this is the question you asked: “I just found this piece of pizza on the ground of the subway in NYC, and there’s a hair on it. Would the hair keep you from eating it? Or should I just take it off or eat around it?“
  9. its been awhile since this was posted, but if your book has left the chain of custody/possession/view of CGC witnesses/employees, it is ineligible for CGC SS. THere's a newb thread in the Signature Room subforum you can check out.
  10. I don't know if they've updated the story, but it would probably help catch the other bad guy if they released a description of the other suspect.
  11. for midtown (domestic), I've had ok luck with high grade NEW comics. Probably a 9.8 for maybe a third of new comics? (is that good?) there are some other CGC 9.8 subscription services you can consider where you prepay for someone to buy and slab the book themselves before sending you a guaranteed CGC 9.8. Also you could just get Marvel Unlimited during quarantine (less going out, less mail to open) and do your best to read the artists/creators you like (I'm sure Marvel tracks it)
  12. I would say it’s hard to know based on the fact that many companies are changing and updating their office policies to reflect health issues. I would not expect things to on the fast side though. Were there any notices on the company website? If not you’d probably get better info contacting the company directly
  13. People makes all kinds of decisions for all kinds of reasons. If you try to speculate the logic of people’s dumbest decisions without any way to get at the facts.... honestly not the greatest use of one’s time, especially if it doesn’t impact you. although sometimes it is astounding what’s slabbed
  14. Asked a million times, but honestly a good question. good luck.
