  1. Yup, it just came back with no submission status changes.
  2. Yup, same thing just happened to me. I've had this happen to me before without any submission status changes.
  3. Greggy, I checked your previous posts and these books were scheduled for grading back on 9/9. Seems like a longer wait than usual to get to this stage.
  4. I have 2 Walkthru books that were received by CCS on 8/20 for screening/pressing services. The current turnaround time for screening is 15 business days (with 10 additional days required for pressing). The books were screened within 5 days, so I was hoping pressing would be completed 10 business days later (it's been 20 business days since books were received). I'll wait until end of next week (full 25 business days) before inquiring.
  5. From my experience, credit card payments are usually applied halfway or 2/3 of the way through the pressing process. There are times when the turnaround time is 60 business days, but then I get my hopes up because my credit card was charged 35-40 days into the process. Unfortunately, it doesn't mean your books are about to be pressed.
  6. Finalized / Shipped - 8/29 ( I guess CGC IS working Saturdays now). Results - 7 - 9.8's, 3 - 9.6's, 2 - 9.2's. Best case scenario was 10 9.8's, 1 9.6 & 1 9.4.
  7. First in thread wins the book. $12 USPS Priority Mail shipping to United States (please PM first if located in another country) Paypal payment and personal check is acceptable. I can also do time payments as well (up to 3 months). Book ships after payment is complete.

  10. CGC answered my question. The books have already been screened (received 8/20) and are in-line to be pressed.
  11. Question for those who have submitted books via the Walkthru service to be screened and pressed by CCS. How long does this process usually take? CGC grades the book the same day received, and the current turnaround time for CCS pressing is 10 business days, which makes sense. However, as far as screening is concerned, the CCS page notes that the current turnaround time is Tier + 15 days. This seems like a long time to wait for Walkthru service.

  13. I usually go to the CGC Services page, which also has info on CCS TAT's

  15. Mine took about 8 business days to show up. I have another package that was delivered on 8/13, but hasn't been received yet.
  16. Do you mean the listing of the actual books you've submitted? Mine were received a couple of days before you and it just says received with CGC submission number.

  18. This definitely needs improvement. I want to send a couple of books via the Walkthrough service, where they are supposedly graded the same day as received. However, having them sit in CGC's mailing room for 2 weeks, defeats the purpose. Books need to be marked as received within 3 business days tops (after being picked up).
  19. I have a spreadsheet created for all my CGC graded books with current GPA average prices included. When I receive my grades on-line, I make sure to milk the process as much as possible. I'll check the grades one by one while filling out my spreadsheet. This could take up to 30 minutes, depending on the size of the submittal. The anticipation of finding out the next grade (while checking GPA values) is fantastic.
  20. 60-70% is usually the best I can do with respect to 9.8 books. Slight corner bends seem to be allowed for pre 1990 books, but even one one mini spine stress will typically knock the book down to 9.6.
  21. Noticed it was updated to 32 days for modern slow track.
  22. Per response from CGC, they are currently processing packages received on the week of July 13th. They noted this process usually takes 2-8 business days. I'm on 7 business days now, so hopefully the submission will be marked as received by tomorrow.
