Just sent in first submissions.

 

Just started collecting comic books 1 yr ago and just joined CGC this past month. I am now 22 yrs of age, somewhat of a late bloomer i guess. I started with modern comics but quickly made the jump to the more desirable and more attractive silver and golden age. Now I'm looking to get some of my own books graded and so recently joined CGC.

 

I have submitted 4 comics that have sentimental value. Payed myself so I don't waste my coupon on elementary comics. I also wanted to test my own grading merit, which I'm sure is quite ignorant and subject to bias, and also to familiarize myself with the process. My submissions are as follows:

 

Wolverine 1 Djurdevic variant- First comic I ever bought

9.4

 

 

Walking Dead 27

9.2

 

Green Lantern 2nd series 40

6.0

 

Action Comics 304-First silver age comic purchased.

5.0

 

These are my estimated grades. I can't wait to get these back and be disappointed!!! Just kidding I will be happy with any grade and really want to compare my expectations vs reality to help evaluate comics and future submission possibilities.

 

 

Reading all these different journals from all of you guys just gets me super excited to really turn my collecting into full gear. Reading the CGC graders experience I hope I never reach that point and am glad I'm a newbie and have so much to discover.

as a newbie i'm glad you're already prepared to be let down by your grades. I had to learn about stains and scuffs the hard way.

 

cheers and welcome to the Borg collective....kiss all your money goodbye.

I found that I would rather have the comics than the money...

Thank you all for the welcoming. I hoping I can stay on top of submitting regular journal entries. And just to clear things up I am a Marvel fan as well.
