Got back my 2/6 FT Pre-Screen Modern submission this week. Lowest 9.8 rate I ever had on a modern submission since I started submitting in 2004. Including one 9.8 that was damaged and an 8.5 range book that received a 9.6. Quite a few that were head scratchers. I'll be calling tomorrow to see what can be done with the damaged 9.8 copy.

I have three groups of books in for grading right now:

Received    Items    Service    Status
2/23/2021    25    FAST TRACK VALUE    Scheduled for Grading
1/22/2021    24    MODERN    Grading / Quality Control
1/20/2021    25    VALUE    Received
 
So far it looks like they are on schedule with the stated TATs when they were received.

Is there an estimate of how long it takes from the time books are delivered (via USPS Priority Mail) to the time they are marked Received?

about 3 weeks unless you have fast track, walk through, express, or a in-house-signing written on the outer of the package....

I feel like I cheated the system. I had a mechanical error, reholder, and 2 fast track moderns delivered on 3/22. The ME was received on 3/23 and the reholder and 2 fast tracks were received today. I did write ME all over the box with a sharpie. 

Hopefully Carma won't bite and give me less than 9.8s

I had an Express submission delivered on 3/19. I wrote EX on the box but it hasn't been scanned as received yet. Is it normal for it to take this long for those to get logged in?

All I can say with respect to how CGC has been packing lately is that they are running out of supplies, as they are packing differently.

Also, some books that don't need thick slabs are being put into them probably that they are low in supply of the regular slabs.

Since when does Next Men 21 need a thick slab?

Thank you. That confirms my fears. My last batch definitely was packaged way worse than normal and a few cases got cracked and had to be shipped back. Really hope we do not get hit with a , " sorry we have run out of packing materials and our slab cases are on back order, so we have had to suspend grading until our supplies have been restocked. "

Are the cases clear? Because most I get back have scuffing.

Are you still talking about comics?  Otherwise the thick slabs of 21 men you choose to spend time with is best left to yourself.  CGC: Classy Greggy Club?  :insane:

My book is being packed and shipped back.  Now you've got me worried.

I didn't check all 150 books but the one I looked at looked fine to me.
