Can we really trust CGC? Why are grades on my books so low?

Called CGC 2 days ago 12/12/12 because my status, on 5 submitted books, was in "Graded" status and I couldn't view my grades!!! They told me they changed their system and that you can no longer see your grade until the comics have been shipped & also because they are training graders. That sux because I don't want some new guy grading my books.

 

More concerns,

Invoice date was 11/30/12. Submitted Modern fast track 10 day turn around. Today is the 10th day if you count after the 30th of Nov. and the 11th day if you count the day of the 30th of Nov.

 

Are you counting the weekends as business days? Wrong.

 

Now how come they haven't shipped my books?!?!?!? I have submitted over 27 books and never have I had to wait so long to see my grade. It's Friday and my books are still in "graded" status. When they clearly should be in the shipped/safe status. Now I have to wait until Monday or longer!!!! NOT F******* FAIR

 

I feel the cgc is backed up and if so, then good I'm glad they are hiring but now they need someone to back up there system and change the current turnaround!!!!

 

You need to get a life.

 

If I was counting the weekends then it would be 14 days stupid!! You need to learn how to count I think they taught me that in elementary school.

Gees man, it's your Birthday. Relax and enjoy it. (thumbs u

 

Thank you I will enjoy it. I'm sorry to act this way I'm better than that. I see my flaws and I apologize, so now my side of the street is swept. There are far too many things to worry about in my life than a few books being graded. I'm having a great birthday. I was just kind of venting, because I was reading a few other boardies having issues with grades and such. Just a little vent doesn't hurt anyone.

This person, Calling is most likely a shill by the name of Harold. He's not worth repliying to. If you check his past posts, you will see what I mean.

It does sound like Matt Nelson. I have no idea why the guy would be such a wanker about keeping the identity a secret. By not revealing the source he just looks like an insufficiently_thoughtful_person, Because if it's not Matt Nelson, or a Steve Borok, the individual would unlikely survive the scrutiny of the board. If it is his case demands a greater deal of credibility. Matt is not chopped liver as an "expert".

 

That being said, we all bash CGC about how long grading takes and whatever other problems exist. Yet, getting my grades is rarely a joyous experince. In over 2000 books, my grades have been about a half grade lower than I expected. That includes many serious mis, a few upside surprises, but mostly just books that are off by 1/2 a grade or so. Invariably I am pretty dissapointed.

 

Two takeaways:

 

1) I send much my decent stuff to Matt Nelson and get his estimate. He does this almost more than anybody. But you have to remember, he is estimating a grade with regard to what it MIGHT be after pressing. He does not offer opinions on books AFTER they are pressed. Overall, he is pretty darn good though.

 

2) When you have graded as many books as I have and read other comments like this, it makes you realize the value of buying comics already graded..

 

When you take the time and trouble as well as money into account, unless you have a very long investment period (thankfuly I do), it's hardly worth it to buy books, get them pressed, send them for grading and then wait 2-6 months only to still have weeping and gnashing of teeth!

Absolutly CGC grading is far and off from realistic grading. If you search my thread history you will find out that my ASM #300 I got for $20 should of been a 8.0 or AT LEAST 8.5 (This is what most people thought just by pictures alone), mainly because of the massive over hang of the cover, and some stress on the spine, but when sent in for SS CCG it actually came back a 9.0 or a 9.2...can't remember. 

Then I had some other books sent in RAW expecting less then steller grades, but actually turned out better then I had thought! Good thing I was not a grader at CGC, i'd have graded your books lower then they actually was. With a more then not on the target grading.

**And if you are actually good, you can get pretty accurate grades by pics alone. This is why we do not work for CGC.
