Standard has gone from 15 days to 18 days. They signed for my books on 10/22, they are not marked as received. So the trick is, don't mark them as received? 

The new norm has been for them to use the not marked received as a way to pad their turn around times.

Also starting to wonder about this Bill Morrison in house signing.  He left last week. When they posted a video on Facbook I was happy to see one of my books selected to be shown( The Beatles) in a video that was mostly Simpsons/ Futurama books ( Green PaintersTape Window Bag)

However now that he has been gone almost a week and these books should either be moving into grading or as I opted on these for the press as well , to CCS yet my submission still sits at received.  Clearly they opened and pulled one of my books so why no update on the status?20201028_154504.jpg.bec46739f05e053d5aa9c9773fec16a3.jpg

The CCS option will be ~3 weeks by itself and they won't change rcvd status till it comes BACK from them to CGC for grading.  

 

FWIW - I sent in 2 books for Morrison remarque (not pictured in promo videos :/ ). They were marked SFG on I think 22nd and only hit Grading/QC today. Once they ship, I'll check my notes and post their full schedule.

I found that out last year when my books arrived the 3rd week in June and were "received the 2nd week in July.

It's just hard to judge when they may be back and since you can't change Fedex, it's challenging. It's not even the time, it's like playing whackamole trying to be here for them.

What’s the latest TAT to get a Modern Prescreen submission RECEIVED at CGC? My box was delivered to their office on 10/15 by FedEx.

Does it really take 10+ days?

The order was received today, 10/28. So YES it takes 10 days :preach:

Thank you for the information and reply. I figured as much,  which is the only reason I haven't picked up the phone.  Still when the advertised a guaranteed TAT for these in house signings they need to keep to it. Especially considering the price they have asked for some of these.. That or they need to do the same they have for the rest and keep the prices lower and not guarantee a specific TAT.

No probs. Said it before, say it again: CGC is a bit of a black box where everyone's hypothesizing the behind the scenes.   

As far as InHouse TATs, theyre really good about holding to it. I've used the Perez, Claremont, Crain, Morrison and eventually Peter David signins. They promise 3 weeks for grading CGC SS and each of mine were done, out the door, within 7-15 days of actual signing. That impressed me for Claremont. He was there for two days straight signing. Their preview showed actual towers of comics for him to work through. 

You'll be golden. It's CCS that'll hold your books up. But they'll adhere to 6 week promise.

I appreciate it. Glad to hear that they are still managing to meet or exceed their advertised TAT. I usually do general modern submissions or prescreen and have a better idea of those TAT. That or I send some to Joey first depending on the books. Which I do understand that pressing can take a while.  Think my last press sub was right about 7 months door to door. It is the CCS that I have never used and was unsure of and this is the first in house signing I have subbed. Thank you again.
