    My road to success (Moving Update 2)

    I cannot believe this is real either, this has to a long running prank. All of this is just way to good to be true, from the crypto currency to the online girlfriend and so on. If this is actually a prank then we should simply ignore this thread, myself included. Posting responses just feeds into the pranksters narcissism. If this is real, we should still ignore this debacle. Nobody’s comments or advice are obviously getting through.

    YEAR IN REVIEW: What's New In Your Collection...

    I’m already looking back on 2018 as a great year. I began the year starting a new chapter with a new employer, I’ve also had the pleasure of adding some very special Silver and Bronze to my collection. AC #437 is a grail, I waited several years for another 9.8 to surface, which it finally did in the first quarter of 2018. The binding and black cover have made this issue illusive in high grade. I sold a lot of slabs to make owing this book happen. This is just a great late Silver cover from THE Silver Age Pedigree. AC #398 is a book I had my eye on for a decade. This Pacific Coast example first appeared in the CGC gallery back in 2008, and I hoped I would get a crack at it. I put out a WTB post for this with no luck. I dreamt of holding this piece in my hands and the dream came true this year. I once tried for another 9.8 of this book a few years back on ComicLink, the final price closed at around $1,300. I got this pedigree example for much less. Love this Neal Adams cover also! This is my first Silver Age Wonder Woman slab. I didn’t think I’d win it for the price I got it for honestly. Some times you just get lucky. Another great orange Neal Adams cover!

    Newton Rings

    I sent in three books for re-holder recently, only one had NR. Still feels like playing roulette...

    current turn around rates at CGC

    My latest Re-Holder submission was the longest in terms of processing time. I also couldn't have the package held at a FedEx location for weekday pickup (like I normally do) due to shipping terms set by the shipper. So I had to wait until Saturday and drive to the other side of town to pick up a package at a FedEx fort. Estimated Turn Around Time: 17 Business Days (when I shipped them, now its 31 business days) Shipped: 9/22/18 Received/Verified: 9/25/18 Graded: 11/7/18 Grading/Quality Control: 11/7/18 Shipped/Safe: 11/8/18 Delivered: 11/14/18 29 Business days, within the ETA. Also, the online invoice did not show the grades, not that I didn't already know, but still weird. The protective bags for the slabs now appear to be of lesser quality also. On the positive, 2 of 3 slabs look great with 0 Newton Rings. The other is barrable.

    So I made this list the other day. God help us all... Not complete for Marvel, but I think it's all of the horror. Then there are the neat Sci Fi titles and Kung Fu mags. Then there is Warren... Here's a graphic.

    I like how just enough of her robe material stays in place in just the right places. Seriously, great cover!

    Oh man, of all the comic shops and shows I've been to in my time, I've never seen books of this genre as in nice of shape. Bounty has the hook ups for sure.
