The consignor certainly hopes for more than $12,300+10% commission...

Looks like there’s 3 9.8s on the census.  What’s the GPA?

Unless I'm missing something - not seeing a recorded sale in 9.8

First thing as everyone has already said - NO …..   second , there are literally hundreds of "pressing services" out there . From the handful of larger well known nationwide services down to hundreds of amateur and semi-pro pressers ….. 

How many pressers are at Disney?

Who is your favorite Disney princess? (sexually)

Whoa. Get out of my brain. I've literally watched less than 5 Disney movies ever, and I just watched Moana for the first time last night. My girlfriend made me. Amidst the protesting I actually enjoyed it, and Moana is hot.

If CGC were to start tracking which books were pressed by CCS, it would completely destroy CCS' business as everyone would just move on to any one of the quality third party pressers that are out there.  The OP can be outraged all he wants over a book that he assumes was pressed, but any tracking proposal is a non-starter.  

Why? There's (supposedly) nothing at all wrong with pressing. (shrug)

Simple logic is why.  Do you really think CCG would want to see one of its components (CGC) impose a criteria on one of its other components (CCS) that, one, would not apply to any other player in the market in which CCS participates, and two, would decimate CCS' business?  Makes zero sense.

So you are saying CGC has no ability to know if a book came from the pressing room of CCS, even though it is part of the company and housed under the same roof and billed with a similar invoice with the company letterhead on it?  CGC has no ability to tell if the books came from CCS ?  Yeah, right.  And when CGC grades books, they don't know and aren't allowed to know who the submitter is  I have a bridge to sell you.

They don't because they must choose not to keep track of such things in order to remain impartial to everyone and their uncle sending books in that they are pressing. 

 

Which reminds me... I have to send an order down to Florida.  Finally get off my rear end and do it.

So what did they improve?  Bottom front corners look blunted...actually they look nicer in your 9.6 picture than the 9.8 one on comiclink.

Nothing in GoCollect either. I assume the 3x copies are from collectors who sent in for submission and then kept for their own collection.

This will all work out better if you suspend belief, like we do when we watch a movie. Ignore the gape in the plot, and enjoy the pretty new labels in shiny plastic.

Be happy there is a new 9.8 for someone to buy.

Did we ever find out if the original poster was the original owner of the "9.6?"

THAT might make more "sense" idk :tink:

The only real question is how many times was this book pressed.

for the over/under for 5, I would take the over.

for the over/under for 10, I would take the under.

If pressing is a good thing and not something to be hidden, shouldn't proclaiming that your book was pressed by the #1, official company be a good thing? How could that possibly hurt CCS's business?
