  1. Is there anyone on the boards here that has been using this since it launched 6 months ago? Would love to get some feedback on pros and cons.
  2. I have found massive production variation in the sizes of bags and boards. Some fit great, but the next time I order, not so great. It can be frustrating. I have started going to mylites2 and fullbacks. They are sooooooo much better. Books always seem to fit great and never slide around. Yes, the price is a little steep, but I'm a firm believer that you get what you pay for.
  3. I can't predict how the value of today's variants will change over time, but the one difference between today's variants and books of the 90's is that the variants are extremely low print runs (thousands, if not hundreds) compared to many books in the 90's that had print runs in excess of 3 million copies. Will be interesting to see what happens.
  4. I am pretty sure your order can be updated. If you cannot figure out how to do it on the website, just call them and they will walk you through everything. I have had really good experience talking with their customer service people.
  5. I tried finding these but couldn't. Maybe ebay already removed them.
  6. I'm a little confused...where is he selling a Strange Tales 89? I don't see that in any of his pictures.
  7. I would do it. Very small amount of color touch...pretty big key issue. As long as you are ok with the grade coming down, then seems like it would be worth it to get that blue label on a big key book.
  8. Thanks for the response. Didn't know if someone out there had any other ideas on better ways to protect the books others than multiple boards. In the end, the books still need to be removed from the bag, so all bets are off at that point.
  9. Assuming that means it will be blue if I do nothing. Is that correct?
  10. Sounds like you are taking good precautions. I'm more concerned about how the books are handled by CGC once they open the box. Really easy to bend single backing boards. Was just wondering if I was the only one using 3-4 backing boards per book, to keep them a little safer in case someone handles the books roughly.
  11. Just wondering how people who have been doing this for years bag and board their comics before sending to CGC. Do you use the utmost protection and put it in a full back and mylar? Or do you go the cheap route and just use a normal backing board and bag? I don't want to assume CGC will be extremely careful with my books so I always use 3 to 4 backing boards, but it's also money down the drain because we never get those back. What does everyone else do?
  12. Will I get a green label with this or a comment added onto a blue label? Also, any guesses what book this is?
