Booth Submission (5 books)

Modern Signature Series with CCS

Dropped off at Fan Expo Dallas - 5/4/2019

Received at CCS - 5/13/2019

Finished at CCS / Received at CGC - 9/3/2019

Scheduled for Grading - 9/10/2019

Gradinig/QC - 9/11/2019

Finalized - 9/11/2019

Shipped-  9/12/2019

Summary

So when they went to received at CCS I had an estimated completion dates of 10/5/2019 and 10/2/2019 (100 business days).  TAT dates fluctuate, but each of my submissions have absolutely CRUSHED the initial expected TATs.

I will update when they actually ship (most likely tomorrow) and when I receive them (my guess would be early next week).

Fingers crossed.  My value sub got there a day before yours (5/7) and is still scheduled for grading.

I wonder... if CGC have a financial incentive (paid fast tracking) to keep the long turnaround times, do you think turnaround times would be any quicker?

 

 

Mine shipped today. Surprises good and bad. I agree the value tier is the red headed stepchild. No respect. Everything else goes before. The turnaround times fluctuate but I agree they want the fast track and modern money the most.

For me getting back graded comics is literally like Christmas morning. I never peek ahead of time - I don't want to know those grades until I am actually unwrapping (aka opening) that CGC box. :cloud9:

That's me.  And even then, I will drag out the reveal for days and days.....just a couple at a time.

CCS delays are really becoming a problem.

I have 2 lots of books still sitting at Received on 7/8/19 via Modern Fast Track for both CCS and CGC.

Rang few weeks ago and was told that CCS has massive delays and backlog affected TATs.

As of today, the books have been 44 days at CCS. The stated TAT is 37 days.

What rankles is that the TATs are rarely updated, so you can't manage expectation.

Additionally, the times I use the service, I've at times had to query with CGC team on the quality of pressing, so I am finding myself questioning whether I use the service given both this and the ridiculous delays.

Don't get me started on Magazine pressing, that is like waiting for Haley's Comet to come around (no Fast attack option folks).

One week (5 days) later and despite being assured by customer service that these were completed at CCS and moving to CGC for grading, no movement. 

49 days for Fast Track moderns at CCS right now, compared to stated TAT of 37 days.

What are we actually paying for here? A new "Not So Fast Track" tier charged at same price?

I submitted 5 comics for FAST TRACK MODERN grading, CGC marked them as "Received" on 7/25/19 and it's still marked as "Received" today 9/13/19. (CGC Submission # 2057468)

Normally I would just wait and not say anything because I know the grading process takes some time, but I had just sent in 7 comics for FAST TRACK MODERN grading and they were "Received" on 6/11/19 and were graded and shipped back to me on 6/20/19.

Why did my submission from June take only 9 days total for 7 FAST TRACK MODERN comics, but my submission in July for 5 FAST TRACK MODERN comics has taken almost 2 months now? I honestly feel I should be reimbursed the extra $50 I spent for FAST TRACK. I would appreciate it if someone who works for CGC can get back to me about this.

Thanks

would be better to call, I've had modern slow track from around that time already get back to me....

Is it possible these were pressed?

These had to have been fast tracked?

My SS Moderns went from Grading/QC to Finalized in the same day.  Until the label is created I couldn't see the actual grades though.

I was quite happy with the grades I got.  Hope you fared as well!

I did have them pressed, but I had the other 7 pressed and they had a 9 day turn around after being "Received". Hopefully they're graded next week. I'll give them a call next week if the status doesn't change.
