Where are my books?

 

If you have an invoice number, you can call CGC customer service. If you do NOT, contact the facilitator who you went through to get your books signed. Don't call CGC without an invoice number. Also there is an estimated turn around time posted on their submissions page, use that.

 

 

If I have a book with a yellow label already, can I add more signatures?

 

Yes, contact CGC at show or submit through facilitator. Book must NOT be removed from slab or label is VOIDED.

 

 

Can I get a raw book I had signed 20 years ago slabbed with a yellow label?

NO

 

 

Can I send in my DF signed raw book with a COA to get a yellow label?

 

NO

 

 

Can I send in my signed raw book that I have photographic evidence it was signed?

NO

 

 

My LCS gave me a signed raw book from their wonderful store signing, can I get a yellow Label?

 

NO

 

 

I have a great sketch at home on one of those blanks, can i get a yellow label?

 

NO, with sketches a witness must pick up the sketch directly from the artist OR the artist must contact CGC and mail directly into service center.

 

 

How do I get a Stan Lee book signed?

 

Private message Desert Wind Comics or wait for specific signings by board members such as Kevin_Boyd and Paradise Comics

 

 

What if I have a million questions about Stan signings?

See above answer

 

 

Where is my favorite creator showing up?

 

See MedicAR thread about where everyone will be signing

How do I get books signed.

How come the Dairy Con doesn't have onsite?

 

CGC onsites at select shows. See front page for details

But what if I have a book that was signed by Stan Lee 20 years ago at my LCS and I want to mail it to DF to get a COA and then have them send it to CGC for a yellow label, do I just fax Steve Borock?

No, Kevin Boyd can help you with that though.

Even though I laughed at some of the answers, this thread is a huge WIN for people new to SS and answers questions as quickly and as painlessly as possible.

Kudos AC...

I wanna know if I can get a book tripled signed by Anthony, Sean and JJ? How do I make this happen? :)

 

If possible I would like it to be that Alf comic with him riding that seal. lol

Can I send in my DF signed raw book with a COA to get a yellow label?

 

NO

 

Exception you can get a signature added to the any raw Book with CGC witness. The DF signature will be counted as a defect lowering the grade noted as something written on cover, but the book will get a yellow label.

If you sub a raw book signed/sketch by itself only you can request a green qualified label, but that's it.

That's got nothing to do with whether it's a DF book or not.

 

You can add a witnessed signature to any already-signed book and it'll come back with a SS label and the previous (unverified) signature treated as a grade-dropping defect.

Already did "added" a CGC witnessed signature to two DF books. The grade took a hit from the unwitnessed signature down to a 7.5. The CGC SS label states the DF book numbering and notes the unwitnessed signature as "name written on cover in marker"

 

One side point though I have found out in my CGC SS submissions. If you submit a misprint or otherwise qualified type book for CGC SS then the qualified item I.e. print error, missing staple from printer, etc. counts as a defect & hits the grade since there is no green & yellow label combo. The error is listed on the label so the low grade does not throw off the book too much.

I said nothing about adding a witnessed signature. I said for you to send in your raw df book and get it graded as that's a continuous question on these boards. Seriously pay attention.

Oh man. I am the TOTAL n00b. Recently fallen in love with comics and just won three signed comics on eBay that I was oh-so-proud of.

 

Should've read this first.. can't get the SS obviously. So perhaps I should just go for normal CGC. Bummer.

 

Oh well - learn the hard way.
