  1. @ivdyer Thanks for responding, that was a great response you answered everything. Thats a great piece you are very lucky. @Ron C. Wow thats a great cover. I have always liked that old series and liked Julie Newmar as catwoman.
  2. Also this should have been what I quoted, my fault. Couldnt delete the other comment. And this is amazing.
  3. I thought you couldnt get something CGC if it doesnt come right from either the artist/signer, or a CGC rep. Also what does everybody prefer to do, get the front and back done, or just the front? I see so many seriously great books in here with either just the front done, or both. I would assume that would at least double the commission, and if you wanted it coloured youre looking at around 1000+ for one book. I have yet to aim for any sketched covers because of the likely high cost.
  4. Can I be down for 1 of each of these. Also is that the cover for the spider man in the 60s book you are getting signed?
  5. You guys are scooping everybody up these days. So you waive the fee for handling, but the price for sigs to be CGC'd is up about the same, so its just factored into that to give them some extra cash, im cool with that. I have had lots of books done by you guys in the past year and havent had a single thing to complain about. To any new people, these guys are good to deal with. I highly recommend.
  6. I was asking around @Wystan I havent had any luck finding one yet.
  7. Wow @Wystan I was just looking the other day to see if Peter was doing any signings. Bummer though it would likely cost me too much to get somebody to witness his signatures there
  8. I have possibly a rookie question. So you can send books off to creators/artists for them to sign/sketch with a letter from CGC they fill out and sign authorizing that it is their art or its their signature on the book. Well are you able to send the same book to several people to sign and just include an extra letter for each additional person signing and still have it all be verified? For ex.(This is only an example) You send a book to Stan Lee with a CGC letter, he signs the book and the letter, then he mails the book to Jack Kirby, he signs both the book and letter, then mails it to CGC. CGC receives the package and sees both letters are signed, the book is signed by both, all is good, yellow label. Or do they only accept 1 letter per signed item. Meaning you would then need to get it cracked at a show or through a private facilitator and get it signed by the next person you wanted and graded again?
  9. This Tony Skelpic has some great stuff, is just another random artist like Ash? I never thought you could get anything CGC'd unless it was by an established artist. Shows what I know haha how much was his stuff? @ivdyer @A-DONIS That Spiderman 800 cover with the Sony game is a sweet idea, I really like that.
  10. I have another rookie question, so you can send books off to creators/artists for them to sign/sketch with a letter they sign authorizing its their signature. Are you able to put send the same book to several people to sign and just include an extra letter for additional person signing and still have it all be verified?
  11. This Ash Gonzalez, fellow I have never heard of, what is his fee for doing these crazy awesome covers you all have been getting?
  12. Thanks guys, the refund we are getting is only for the signatures we did not receive. I am not yet giving up on demanding half of the CGC fees they charged us either. They wont offer any other compensation in the form of cash or paying for another facilitator. But what I can tell from you guys is that we should probably do the deal for their 2 signed books. I looked up posts about page colour, and found a page that did a comparison for several different books, and his conclusion was the page colour for white to white/off white to off white/cream, did not actually influence the value of the book. I am pretty tired of fighting with these guys over these books. But I feel if we do a trade, they will want to hold half of the signature money since we would be receiving 2 books with Todds name on them now. But I do not want that at all, I would want the books, the entire cost of the missed sigs, and some of the CGC fees for the year long hassle they caused.
  13. So after a year long wait a friend of mine and I finally received 3 of our books from Anastasia's Collectibles. However they didnt have Todd McFarlanes signature on them as they were supposed to. So now we demanded our money returned and they agreed. Though they pitched us a counter proposal for 2 of our books, ASM 300, and Spiderman 1. They have copies of the 2 books we had signed, but theirs are signed by both. They are offering a trade. Same grades. Same book. Just the books have both. However, the ASM 300 we had signed has white pages, theirs is white/off white, will this drop the value of the book much? My thoughts are yes. The second issue is they both have their special CGC label on the books. So imagine a regular CGC yellow signature series label, but on the right side of the label, beside the CGC logo there is a picture of Stan Lee's head, and beside that it reads "Stan Lee Exclusive", does this special label do anything for the value of the book? I am torn, I dont want to do business with these guys considering how it was this past year and I dont want to send my books away again. However I would have to spend the money to regrade the books if I want them signed by Todd and cased again. Thoughts?
