I'm confused on just what they would grade. At first I thought it was only comic mags/graphic novels but then saw they added Sports Illustrated and Playboy (?) to the mix. I today saw a graded Monsters of Filmland. I've been wanting to do Starlog, Fangoria, and various Men's Interest mags. Would they do other adult magazines? What about digest sized?

The best way to find out is to call them honestly. I do hope they expand I to grading more magazines and really I hope they will finally start accepting Collectors Society certificates for grading them as I've had some expire.

Graders Notes: Interested, interested. Very interested, very interested. And then suddenly I lost all interest in the magazine, about 2/3 of the way through.

A near mint first issue of Hustler is worth 150-200, for real.

They have graded After Hours which is a girly magazine that happened to be published by Warren. And also the aforementioned examples of Sports Illustrated and Playboy. So it really does seem to be open season. The only definitive answer would have to come from CGC; has anybody asked?

My experience from being involved with Sig Series is that it is a little hit or miss, some might even say arbitrary. There have been three magazines that I am aware of that were rejected for Sig Series for reasons that i am not entirely sure I can quantify. They were science fiction type magazines that were being submitted for authors like Larry Niven.

 

I have never heard of a Warren or a Marvel/Epic mag being rejected, so that is what I stick to, if I possibly can. Fangoria, Cinezone etc. seem to be fairly safe bets as well. The farther you get out from these "mainstream" titles, the more risk of rejection there is.

After Hours is one that comes to mind. I know the last issue was a prototype for Famous Monsters but the first three issues are mainly 50's girlie magazines. Couple that with Playboy and I get the impression it's ok to submit some of my cheesecake mags, many more popular than After Hours. Would love to submit some of my Bettie Page and M. Monroe covers.

A few years ago I was told 100 pages or less and 8.5 x 11 or smaller, however I think they can do over 100 pages now.

They probably have to have a built database of info for the label notes otherwise they would be stalled at encapsulation. Sure, they could just put the issue #, month & year, but if they leave out what's special about the issue, you know they'd catch hell.

Montrealfilmguy readies his Starlog collection and his Cinefex collection..

 

Ok we're ready. :whistle:

 

 

And someone releasing a horror/scifi mag price guide is long overdue.

 

Last one is from 2000.
