  1. Hello, in planning which comics to send to a CGC private signing, I have some books that were previously signed for the Heroes Initiative. I understand that CGC cannot authenticate those signatures, but will having them on the cover reduce the grading since they're written on? To be clear the current signatures are for artists/writers other than who I'd be sending it in for the private signature event. Thanks so much.
  2. I wanted to see what others thought. What grade would you give this? And would a press and clean be beneficial, like always thanks in advance for the responses.
  3. I'm a new comic collector that's 4 years late on the Overstreet Grading Guide, so I apologize if this issue has come up numerous times before. It's very frustrating to spend $25 on a book that's riddled with inconsistencies. Especially when the book is suppose to GUIDE you, not confuse you. I'm going to list a few examples of things that really bothered me. All they needed was a proofreader and these errors could have been taken care of before printing. A few examples below: Example 1 (pg. 272) GOOD+ description states "Paper is brown but not brittle", and the very first example picture (pg. 274) says "Hidden defects: brittle pages" and "Page Quality: brown, brittle". HUH? Explain that one for me please. I'm waiting... Example 2 (pg. 282) GOOD description states "Paper is brown but not brittle" and the very first example picture (pg. 284) says "Hidden defects: Brittle interior pages" HUH? Explain that one for me please. I'm waiting... see the stupid and lazy inconsistency between GOOD+ and GOOD "brittle descriptions"? One hidden defect said "Brittle pages" and the other said "Brittle interior pages". WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE?!?!? All pages are interiors! That's lazy writing. Period. Example 3 (pg. 298) FAIR/GOOD description states "A copy in this grade still has all pages and covers, although there may be pieces missing up to and INCLUDING MISSING COUPONS and/or Marvel Value Stamps that do not impact the story". That's great and all, but why then, on the very next page (299), does COUPON CUT say "none allowed"? Explain that one for me please. I'm waiting... Example 4 (pg. 350) The 4.0 Very Good example pic of The Amazing Spider-Man #50. They have an arrow pointing to "Date stamp" on the cover. INCONSISTENCY ALERT! Here is the description for 4.0 Very Good on pg. 242: "Store stamps, name stamps, arrival dates, initials, etc. have no effect on this grade." Ok that's great. Then why did you point out the date stamp in the example pic as if it was a defect?!?!??!?! Lazy again, folks. All they needed was a proofreader. And don't get me started on this guy using different words throughout the book to describe the exact same thing. Just stick with one word so it becomes universal. Abraded or Rounded? Pick one! You don't need to use one or the other every other time. The book's title should've been "The Overstreet Inconsistent Guide to Grading Comics". I notice they have all the "advisors" in the back of the book. Maybe I can be one since I'm advising Overstreet to stop being inconsistent and lazy. Maybe hire a proofreader next time, buddy.
  4. Can Pokemon cards be submitted for grading in top loaders or card saver II's?
  5. Can this book benefit from a pressing? It was originally graded in 2010, it has no grader notes ( waste of ten bucks). I’m still very new to the hobby and this is actually my first Flash book. Thanks in advance for any comments.
  6. Hey all! Do signature series subs have to be sent to Sarasota via UPS or can they go regular mail? ty!
  7. Hello. I have purchased CGC graded comics but this is my first time ever submitting some anything to CGC to be graded. I am an associate level member and have chose to use UPS grounds as my mailing option which was 14 dollars per comic. I was able to pack my comics following the Shipping Kit and Packing Tips. I printed out the invoice containing which comics I'm sending out to them as well as the services I requested, but realized that there was no shipping label? Again it's my first time, so i am a little confused because from previous experiences, sending stuff out using online systems I have been able to get a shipping label out, from what i can recall. Or am i wrong? Ebay allows me to print a shipping label after I've sold items on their site to be mailed out, does CGC not? is the 14 dollars UPS Grounds fee only for returning your stuff back once CGC has graded or done the services from which you've chosen from? Please help me? Is there somewhere i can print a label from since i already paid 14 bucks for shipping or do I have to pay more at the UPS/USPS/FedEx store? Im confused..
  8. Hey guys, how does one make a window bag for a signing? is it just as simple as cutting a section of the bag that's in away for the signature? In that case I just answered my question. sorry
  9. Hi everyone, sorry for the delay to get this going! It's been a busy summer and I have been MIA on these boards for most of it. However, now that the delay is over......it's time! With the greatest of respect and a tip of my hat to the irreplaceable Nik, I would like to offer for your fun and enjoyment, the 7th annual CGC Green Eggs Grading Contest. On Friday, September 20th, I will officially start this grading contest over in the "Hey buddy, can you spare a grade?" section of the boards. This here is the sign up thread, for all interested. Everyone is welcome to join in. Please post here if you would like to play in this contest. It's a lot of fun, and there will be prizes. 1.) You will see 2 books per round, for 10 rounds. The contest will begin on September 20th and (should) end on October 10th. 2.) There will be an approximate 48 hour time limit between rounds. I will confirm the end time for all rounds once the contest starts. I will send everyone a PM on the day the contest starts. You are to look at the books; figure out the grades and reply to that very same PM that I started with you. Again, this will be the same PM thread that you will use to submit all grades for all rounds. Please do not create a new PM for each grade submission. 3.) No changing of grades will be allowed once submitted. Post only one single, numerical grade for each book. If you post more than one grade (e.g. 8.5/9.0) then your submission for that round will be void. No excuses. As there will be 2 books per round, make it clear which grade is for which book. For example, say ASM #1 4.5 and on the next line say FF #12 8.0. Please don't screw this up. 4.) The page quality and any noticeable defects you can not see on the book from the scan will be given for each round. Do not PM with questions. Assume that all of the books have been pressed. The scans that you will be looking at will be of the book already inside the CGC case. 5.) Points awarded will be as follows; 5 points for a direct hit, 3 points for 1 grade off, 1 point for 2 grades off and -1 point for 3 grades off. If you are 4 grades off or more, I'm going to hit the "notify moderator" button. 6.) Prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place finishers, and likely many, many more. From what we've seen in previous years, folks have been extremely generous and most people that enter will win a prize. Also,a booby prize will be given for last place. Last place is defined as the person who has participated in all the rounds and has the lowest score. You can not sign up, do nothing and win the booby prize. 7.) Sadly, sckao will not be lending a hand this year. It's been an amazing experience, having him hold my hand for over 6 years now, but he's a busy guy, so I don't blame him one bit! Thanks for being a legend among legends, Shin!
  10. So I recently received a Marvel Special Edition Star Wars #1 and I am wondering if I can get it graded. It is fairly large measuring at about 10 inches wide by 13 inches tall is this a grade able size.
  11. Wondering if CGC opened up the grading for Modern Korean Pokemon Cards? Does anyone know?
  12. Hello all, I recently inherited an awesome Playboy collection. My passion has always been coins so the CGC is new to me. I don't understand the pricing outlined, but due to the contents inherited I need to be. I already have 2 of the top ten Playboy's sold at auction (I know this doesn't guarantee my copies to be valued the same by any means due to other factors: including a desire to have it and what condition it's in.) I stared in disbelief at the August 1993 edition, featuring Pamela Anderson and Dan Aykroyd, along with the original 1993 Seinfeld October edition; both of which brought over $5,000 in auction. I hope to not be wasting anyone's time by being in the wrong place or asking the wrong questions; but I needed to start somewhere. And thank you to those who have stuck it out thus far with me. Should I get an appraisal with a grading or just one or the other? I have 60 original unaltered, unmodified, unrestored issues and believe it or not for the most part 95% or so, in my unprofessional opinion, look as of they came off the shelf yesterday. Obviously delicately handled and well taken care of(Not an exaggeration). The years range from 1991-96, 2001-2003, and December 2014. In whole I am missing on average 3 a month. Thanks for reading, any and all help is invited and appreciated, Bethanie, your newest 🐰 babe!!
  13. I'm a newbie, so please forgive me if this has been discussed before. I recently got back into the collecting game and got some good ideas on learning how to assess the quality of comics from another post. One suggestion I received was to review graded comics listed at Heritage Comics. I'm not comfortable yet with assessing quality based on a picture. However, I've been buying comics from MyComicShop and Midtown Comics and trying to guess at the grade before I look at the label attached to the bag. Admittedly, this is going to give me exposure primarily to FN to NM comics since I'm not really buying lower quality. My question is: what is the community's experience with either or both seller's grading? Are they both pretty accurate? Is one better than the other? Thanks for the help.
  14. Hi folks, Looking for some advice here - I bought this book the other week, thinking that it would grade highly. Seller described it as being in "perfect condition". The book is perfect except from the white bits all over the back cover. This is not colour rub, the paper is still perfect and is not worn in the slightest. It looks to me like a printing error... Anyone got any thoughts on how this would affect the grade of the book? Can it still get a 9.0 plus or is there no chance? Many thanks!
  15. Hello guys, ive got a copy of silver surfer #1 2nd printing that I want to send off to get signed by donny cates then get graded but I’m not to sure if it is worth the grading price because of the spine. would this effect the grade? mots hard to take a photo of sorry
  16. My first submission on this board. I really enjoyed looking at other grades. As I dig into my collection a bit deeper I want to see where some of my comics fit. I have never submitted to CGC but plan to in the next few weeks. I’ll start with this Incredible Hulk comic. Let me know what you think or if it’s worth sending on. I’ll keep it to 3 for the day though. Thanks in advance!
  17. I have gone through Overstreet's guide and I can't find any guidance there as to flakes. The flake on the bottom right cover is a decent size and I've put a dime next to it for size comparison. I know there are other issues like the subscription crease running down the center, but the staples are tight and in good shape, the book lays flat, and I would have it pressed before submitting it for grading. Any thoughts on grade and direction on cover flakes is much appreciated.
  18. Let me know what you think this comic would garner for a rating. Just looking to send in a solid first batch with some I will keep and some I will sell to fund getting others graded. Looking to thin the herd and protect my favourites. Thanks in advance.
  19. Let me know what you think, looking closely it had a little strain on the spine I hadn’t noticed prior, but I’d be curious what you think it would rate.
  20. Noticed a good portion of my comics from this era seem to be cropped. Cropped in a sense that the entire book was probably printed on the pages a lot higher up than usual. This isn't very noticeable with the contents in the book except for the bottom margin being larger but cover images look deranged as some of the top cover text is cut off. No portion of the cover is missing a portion of the image as I know that prior to printing artists have a much larger cover art that inevitably gets trimmed down. Would submitting comics with these manufacturing defects affect grade? Does this qualify as a physical defect?
  21. Books already there plus books that have already been mailed and are on their way.
  22. Hi All! I see the in-person drop off option for when participating at a con event. My question is, do walkthrough tier items get graded there on the spot if you make an appointment? Or will CGC then ship it to FL for grading, and you receive the comic back via mail? Thank you :)
  23. Relatively new to comic book submission and grading world...wondering a. If this would be submittable/gradeable b. Which category to submit under (comic or magazine) and c. If people have any advice or opinions on collecting advance copies of comics
  24. My collection is all modern age comics from the late 80's to early 2000's. They are all bagged, boarded and in boxes. I have an excel file listing titles, quantity and my cost (most of them were bought direct from Westfield Comics) along with a current Overstreet Price guide value. I'm not really interested in selling any at the moment, but am trying to gauge what a good cut-off value would be to have sent in for grading. I realize that it is subjective for each person, so I'm looking to see what others have done in the same situation. For example I have half a dozen that show of value over $100. Would anyone go lower than that, like down to $50 ? Or how about a run of 3-4 issues together that value out over $100 ? Thanks for taking the time to answer!
  25. This here is the prize thread for my 2019 Green Eggs Grading Contest! Feel free to make a donation, or even multiple donations. Please understand, you will be responsible for shipping worldwide, unless you state otherwise. As there are many contestants, I hope to see lots of prizes being thrown up. I will continue to update the 2nd and 3rd posts in this thread to recap what has been donated. What can you donate to the prize pool? Whatever you want, really. I wouldn't suggest offering up some really crappy stuff though, or things that are worth less than the shipping cost. I also would never ask anyone to donate multi-hundred dollar items, but that certainly has happened many times before. In the end, it's all up to you what you'd like to offer. Thanks y'all! -Andy
