Amazing Spider-Man 300 (5)= 9.0, 9.0 (Restored, SURPRISE), 9.4, 9.2, 6.5 (WO, That blew my mind, no way!) 2.) Superman 75 (Black Bag)(2)= 9.2, 8.0 (CGC said this book is hard to get mint because of items in bag pressing against it) 3.)

Bronze Horror is the Bomb, Baby!

Bronze Age Horror (mainly provided from DC) is my favorite genre, as it naturally stemmed from my fascination with classic Horror movies. It's a Friday night. I pour butter into a pan and then some popcorn?(I didn't have a microwave yet). I shiver in anticipation as I hear the host of my favorite weekly show called Creature Feature, which showcases horror movies from the classics in the 1930s up to B-type thrillers in the 1970s. My fascination with horror and mystery origins can be found in

Comics, Comics, Comics, & more comics

Collect, buy, sell, trade, & so on & so on..... I have been collecting comics since 1975-76, and have a pretty extensive collection. Altough my main collection is Marvel, I have had & do have many other titles {DC, EC, Valiant, Image, etc...). I have been doing the eBay thing now since June of 2001, and before that have been buying, selling, tradeing at local shows in Mich. I guess that's about it for now. I'll add more later. Have a great day! =0)

Give CGC a call, 1-877-NM-COMIC, and have your invoice number. They will ask you for it and you can get a status on your books and ask them if they have been graded.

The Suspense is Killing me.

As a new member, I sent in my comics using my "Express Coupon" on March 7th...and my comics showed up on CGC's board on March 10th. so when I checked the submission times and found out the Express Coupon gave me 20 working days, I calculated it till April 7th. However, now it is April 12th and I'm really beginning to become concerned. I sent an inquiry via email through Hotmail to CGC since my ISP in New Orleans has been spotty since Hurricane Katrina, but haven't received any feedback. I'm

Some helpful suggestions to get you going DaveLo, Here are some helpful suggestions to get you going with CGC. I got out of comics for about 10 years and just jumped back into the fray last year. Here is alot of things I learned along the way. The first is, get yourself a copy of The Overstreet Grading Guide, 2003 Edition, if you don't already have one. It breaks down the "10 Point" grading system and helps collectors get a feel for where a book should grade. Be warned though, it takes

Sending in to CGC

Two books on the way! I made my first submission to CGC. Witchblade #1 and #2. Basically I'm just trying this out to see how I like the results. I'm hoping that the books grade in the 9's as I've kept them in what I consider to be excellent shape. I'm interested in seeing if my idea of a high grade is close to what the "pros" think.

Stepping into the deeper waters

I'm slowly making the move from only collecting, to more involvement. I have a small collection of comics, mainly mid 1990s, but some lower grade 70s and a very few 40s - 50s. I've had them stored properly (b&b'd) in sturdy comic boxes which are kept in a large closet. I'm becoming interested now in getting some of these books graded through CGC, and possibly even selling some. I've never sold a comic, and never bought one other than new off the stands. As a newb, I have a lot of trepid

Reply to "easier and cheaper"

Keep in the game and hone your grading skills. Why spend all the money? To sharpen your grading skills. Grading is an art, but with all things worth while it takes the commitment of time, effort, and money. I've only sent in 33 comics so far to get graded. I keep a list to compare what I think the comic grades before encapsulation and then what it grades after CGC certifies it. Both my 1st and 2nd batch that I sent off, I didn't get any right at all (and 2 were even restored). The most rece

easier and cheaper

why spend all the money Why spend all the money to get a book graded, when all you have to do is buy them on ebay. I sent a couple of books into ebay spending alot of money on them to get graded. I wnet on ebay and got the same books with better grades at 3/4 the cost. I guess I would never have gotten these books if someone didn't send them in. All I know is that I am never sending another book into get graded. I will let that to the rest of you guys.

Animosity toward CGC?

Why the resistance? I recently took a trip to Connecticut from North Carolina to visit my sister. I made sure to plan spare time to visit the many comic book stores in the area during my trip. I was in THE HUNT for several items. One book was Infinite Crisis #3 which seemed to have a common defect of a ripped or wrinkled page. This defect was in every copy of every store I went to in North Carolina and every store except for one in Connecticut. While in THE HUNT, I also have been actively
