  1. The saga continues... One of the two fast track orders has finally popped out of the other side of CCS at a woeful 50 days TAT. However, the other exactly same type submission is still languishing in CCS for some reason, putting it at 53 days presently - keep in mind, both of these were fast track modern. What is going on with CCS? The one that did pop out was seemingly graded at CGC in super quick time and is now sitting at Finalized / Imaged / Shipped. However there is no shipping info link or actual book grades displaying (I get the .0 on each book). Similarly, what is going on the CGC?
  2. Down for me too, could their current service levels be any worse?
  3. One week (5 days) later and despite being assured by customer service that these were completed at CCS and moving to CGC for grading, no movement. 49 days for Fast Track moderns at CCS right now, compared to stated TAT of 37 days. What are we actually paying for here? A new "Not So Fast Track" tier charged at same price?
  4. CCS delays are really becoming a problem. I have 2 lots of books still sitting at Received on 7/8/19 via Modern Fast Track for both CCS and CGC. Rang few weeks ago and was told that CCS has massive delays and backlog affected TATs. As of today, the books have been 44 days at CCS. The stated TAT is 37 days. What rankles is that the TATs are rarely updated, so you can't manage expectation. Additionally, the times I use the service, I've at times had to query with CGC team on the quality of pressing, so I am finding myself questioning whether I use the service given both this and the ridiculous delays. Don't get me started on Magazine pressing, that is like waiting for Haley's Comet to come around (no Fast attack option folks).

  6. Was interested and had a look, but not sure this is high grade NM however; there seems to be three a large colour breaking creases (can be seen on bottom right of the R on Thor logo) across the front cover, soft corners and multiple spine ticks.

  8. Sure, but as mentioned, I'm predominately a Marvel guy and have little to no idea on other books outside of that to start exploring. I also don't pretend to know it all and can certainly take advice on books that I may not even know about (particularly Marvel), but that others think would be a worthy purchase/investment.
  9. I have $350 to invest and want to know what (if any) raw silver Age books I should be looking to purchase for grading? PreferMarvel, but happy to consider other alternatives.
  10. Agreed, I also bailed on Long Beach to attend Rose City Comic Con in Portland and wasn't disappointed, great crowd, awesome guests (unlike LBCC this year) including Starlin, Bagley, Bendis, Mignola, Crain, etc.
