  1. This one is simple but limited to 200 copies.
  2. Thanks guys. I will send out and reply when I know the grade.
  3. Hey guys, can you give me an opinion on this? The book is almost flawless except for the top and bottom spine. I know those are usual flaws but they might be bigger than usual and knock the grade down some. What do you think? I appreciate the feedback.
  4. I was one of the insufficiently_thoughtful_persons who bought one for $200+. Oh well. Got it slabbed. I love this cover.
  5. The coming is coming in contact with the plastic and creating this unsightly oil spill effect. Now this one got a 9.2 (I, like a complete doofus sent the wrong copy) so I don’t care but I’m about to send my good copy and I don’t want it to look like this. My questions: 1. Is this preventable? 2. Can a note be made requesting to be checked for this? thanks!
  6. Update 2: It was delivered today. Like I said, no updates since Tampa on the 17th then out for delivery today and finally delivered. Somebody else signed for it at the office
  7. UPDATE: my two packages were updated today. One is scheduled to be delivered today, the day I’m off from work. I had it delivered to work. So if I’m not there to sign, the postman will ask for anyone’s signature unless it says “to be signed by addressee only”. If it does then will they try again tomorrow?
  8. Houston here. Mine shipped last Wednesday before Imelda. I thought it was sent by Priority which would have placed the package at the North Houston facility when the roof collapsed. I also haven’t got any updates on mine but I‘ve read that’s normal. I called USPS and they told me it was actually registered mail so it might not have been there. At any rate they say it can take up to 14 days so I wouldn’t worry just yet.
  9. How do you know the ratios? I haven’t been able to find any info on it
  10. Eveybody, Dejah Thoris is up for preorder at Unknown Comic books for $85 risque, $42 virgin and $2.42 for regular trade. If you’re out of luck or prefer to pay MSRP, Golden Apple has them also.
  11. I don’t sweat it. I just go by the timeframe they have posted when they get there.
  12. Wow. This is actually good news for me. I got a package from CGC and tracking says it was in Tampa last Wednesday. I figured since it was Priority that it would be in North Houston on Thursday. Well, on Thursday Imelda struck Houston and that distribution center’s roof collapsed. I figured my box was there but now I’m thinking there’s a chance it wasn’t. Then again no updates since last Wednesday. What do you guys think?
  13. A couple of moderns just went from Scheduled for Grading (even before received/verified) to Received. Is that common?
  14. Did they give you the grades while still showing a grading/quality control?
