  1. TheCollector2016

    DOUG MOENCH Signature Series op available

    Was the 6/21 signing a success?
  2. I waited in line to get my 2 Stan-signed books. They have personal value, never selling.

    Followup question then: is there one standard size CGC holder for magazines, or are they different sized? If there's one standard size, how big is it?

    Celebrity Signed Books

    The CGC Magazines website says they only grade Sports Illustrated and Playboy? Is this not accurate, if they're also grading Rolling Stone? Is there a list of magazines somewhere?

    Fan Expo Dallas 2018 Update...some pics

    Ha! I appreciate the excitement. I prefer to share my books AFTER they come back graded. Just a personal thing. But after doing this for a few years now, I guess I'd describe myself as a "celebrity signed book" collector, and what I get signed and by whom is a bit different. The celebrities today reacted very positively to what I had them sign, as did the witnesses, and the CGC folks at the booth. I'm can't wait to get them back, and will post pics when they arrived.

    Fan Expo Dallas 2018 Update...some pics

    While conversing with CGC today, couldn't help but think "there must be a better way." Feel free to weigh in on these thoughts: - celebrity areas should have 1-2 "roaming" CGC witnesses....that way, people in line don't have to call/text/hunt someone down. -because...when it's a convention this big, 5 witnesses isn't enough. Dallas needs double that, probably more. I know I feel fortunate to get my signatures today, as did the others I talked to in line. It shouldn't be this stressful for the auto collectors, nor should it be this stressful for the CGC witnesses running all other the place. -the good thing this year WAS placement of the CGC booth. Last year, it was way, way far back on the convention floor. This year, it was very close to the celebrity autograph area, and that was a much-needed upgrade. -Despite this relative madness, everyone at CGC was professional, courteous, kind, pleasant, and patient. And, despite the very long lines for just about every celebrity I saw today, it sounded like everyone had a pleasant encounter with the people they were seeking.

    Just wanted to shoutout the hardworking CGC staff, they're overwhelmed again this year. Thanks Ryan, for helping me get my books witnessed today.

    I should note for anyone planning to take the train INTO Dallas...don't. The TRE is building a new bridge in between Centreport DFW and West Irving. Once the train stops at Centreport DFW, you'll have to exit the train, and hop on a bus to West Irving. Who knows how long that will take, and if there are other delays you might have to worry about. Same thing applies going back towards FW. This is ongoing through end of day Monday! Fan Expo note: I love the new layout for the celebrity area. Looks a lot better!

    1. I saw that the BTTF panel will now be free with MJF's cancellation. Would I need to sign up for a ticket anywhere, or is simply getting in line for this event OK? I'll be attending now 2. I think Ben Affleck is a great addition...surely this must be the only con with 2 Batmans and 2 Daredevils! But.... a huge name this late in the game makes it impossible to really figure out what I would want to get signed, and of course have it arrive in time for the con. No doubt plenty of people will get things signed...but a bit more time for a headliner would be helpful in the future.
