  1. Technically this didn't come back from CGC this week, but I did buy it this week!
  2. Not a key issue or anything but still somewhat rare. If you're not familiar with Alan Moore and his history with CGC signings, read this http://www.recalledcomics.com/AlanMooreCGCSigSeries.php
  3. Its free world, if the dude wants to speak his mind, go for it. Who gives a rats arrse?
  4. I know Markey and he doesn't care about the ban, he'll just use CBCS and there ugly new labels. We'll all had Newton Rings for years on the old slabs and know the paper slide trick but its pretty hard to do that on the new cases but the term "Acceptable Level" is a bit off putting. He brings up a good point, if this was your Amazing Fantasy 15 or Batman 1, would you want any "Acceptable level" or rings and/or defects from the case?
  5. TOD 10 was signed by Marv Wolfman, Doctor Strange 1s were signed by Frank Brunner
  6. ASM 300 Signed by Todd McFarlene done at the annual signing at his house
  7. My buddy Danny Silva did this Princess Leia Day of the Dead Sketch cover for me and this young gal was cosplaying a a Dia De Los Muertos Princessa Leia! He also did a Harley Quinn Leia print that some cosplayers have done costumes for, they came up to him and said he inspired them to cosplay as these. Danny Silva Designs does most of the So Cal shows.
  8. Yea, thats where I got these from. But the current size doesn't fit the new slabs. I don't like the excess on the sides that the general size has
  9. They are mylar from BCE...Bill Cole Enterprise
  10. I've recently started putting the Mylar Bags on my CGC cases because I want to put them CGC box. I found some mylar bags from BCE that fit the standard CGC case perfectly, no excess on the sides. It fits nice and snug, unfortunately the new cases are bit too thick for these bags that measure 8 9/16 X 13 1/4 +1 1/2. Has anyone tried Mylar bags on the new cases that doesn't have a lot of excess, er, baggage, on the sides? Pictured is the mylar bag on the old CGC case.
  11. Got them back. New grades and new cases. These new cases are beautiful.
  12. Yea, I sent old labels too but I I did this in a short window of time. I think the longer you sit on it the worse off you are.
  13. So heres the updated information. CGC called me and senior graders agreed that the grading was "too strict" the 9.2 that was graded 8.0 has been adjusted to 9.0 The 8.0 then went to a 7.0 has been turned back to 8.0 Thanks to the folks at CGC for correcting this issue.
  14. Will be sending them out today to get "Reviewed" by CGC to see if the grades can be changed. Will post results in a couple of weeks.
  15. These two books were originally graded by CGC in October of 2015, X-men 100 was 9.2 and X-men 100 was 8.0 I carefully cracked them, prepped them in Mylites2 and Full back boards and cut whole for Claremont to sign at Long Beach Expo on Feb 21st. Just got them back and they each came back a whole grade lower. I had some other books on the invoice that came back lower than expected as well. I called CGC and they said I can send back to them with a "Re-holder" form and make a note on the form from to review these books. If the grade doesn't change, there's a $12 charge, no charge if the grade is changed. Has anyone ever had a grade reviewed by CGC and what have your findings been? Thanks!
