Depends on the books and age of the books.  I'd definetely start off by sending in any key worth over $500 and see how the grades come back.  If the first batch comes back where you thought then I'd send in a batch of books that are high valued in 9.8 / 9.6 and see how your fantastic stacks up to CGC grading.  I had a client send in 1,000 books to get graded before I started working with him and it turned out he lost money (or broke even) on half the books he submitted.  A bunch came back 9.6 and 9.8 but when you are talking about a Bronze Age filler of a book like Devil Dinosaur you don't get much profit on a 9.8 if it cost $25 a piece to get graded.  Sign up for GPA Analyses and and check to see how much your books are selling for in high grades and you should be able to decide if its worth the cost.  Let us know how it goes.

Thats probably good advice... I have been thinking about possibly sending some books in to get graded, than re-sell (than of course use the proceeds to purchase other comics!). I don't know if I have any that would be over $500 though. I was thinking maybe books around $100 (after being graded) that I could sell on eBay. Still looking into it more before deciding though! I have not done the CGC process myself, yet!

Tshot: Which books are you considering for submission. Title, #, and approx. condition on a 1-10 scale will do, where 1 is ragged and abused and 10 is like new?
