So, do these in house signing books have a built in Fast Track? If not, why would they be graded ahead of books that arrived before them? If that is the case...

Not Fast Track per se, but promised 3 week max CCS and 3 week max grade. So yes, the Inhouse signings would receive priority.

I wonder how this works with the signature books.

i.e.

25 books (moderns) sent in on 8/9/2020

Books go SFG on 9/9/2020

A week before they are to be graded/encapsulated 2,000 new signature books get dumped ahead of them in the queue.

Are regular books now "on hold" as as all the signatures get done? Once the sigs are all out the door the clock starts again on the regular moderns that were received on 8/9? 

Not complaining, just want to figure out the process and the realistic wait time.

I don't know at all how this works. But the InHouse do have a promised 3 week turnaround. But they have been staggering the visits to get those grades out door without disrupting reg subs too much.  

FWIW I've been submitting a lot through Quarantine period. Both signings and regular subs. I have a suspicion that they may pull bulk of graders onto signings, but leave a couple always dedicated to regular subs to keep that flow going. I say that because I feel my signings received more...generous(?) grades. My reg subs seemed to have a stricter grader, but one who offered notes on 9.2, 9.4, even 9.6s. I had never before received notes on those tiers. And not for any signins returned in those grades. And some reg subs didnt get those notes either, but most do. Like it's one dude who is VERY detail oriented who is never pulled off reg sub grading. I dunno. I do like constructing narratives in my head

Updates:

Modern Slow Track - 25 Books

In CGC's hands: Mon 9/28

Received: Fri 10/2

CC Charged: Mon 10/5

Scheduled for grading: Tue 10/13

Grading/QC: Fri 10/30

Shipped/Finalized: Mon 11/2

Either CGC is getting tighter on some books or I slipped on this one doh!  17 @ 9.8, 7 @ 9.6, 1 @ 9.2 ... of those, I'd say 4 were a little shocking. Some of the 9.6s I was on the fence about but still worth grading.

Had mentioned that my in house signing for Bill Morrison had not updated and was informed that it would show as a new received date when they made it back to CGC from CCS. Well today received notification.

I am happy they moved so quick, but at the same time that was extremely quick to be pressed and back at CGC. 

Now just looking forward to seeing  what these grade out at, the Signature placement and if maybe he decided to remark any. :wishluck:

Updated to SFG.. forget to mention this update was today. ( like most of us waiting can not help but to keep clicking the My Submissions button.)

Sorry to hear that. That's typically my average for the books I submit to CGC, although I did better with the last batch.

I'm a little surprised that books received on 10/2 have already been graded and shipped. Hopefully my 10/6 received submission will be graded and shipped by end of this week. :wishluck:

Interesting, as I have modern books from 9/9 still SFG.

I would definitely call and check. Some books received in mid September have already been graded and shipped.
