A Submission!

Although I had mentioned that finding a raw to submit was unlikely, earlier this year I did send a book in and am awaiting results.

Spoiler

Got the book off of eBay for around $50.00. It certainly has a few issues. I think much of it will press out but I do not think this is my 9.8.

If anything I think I sent this book in just for the excitement of sending a copy of this bad boy in myself…

Looks like a small tear through the cover… lets see what CCS does with those dents!

Check out my set and you’ll see I’ve had a little success here and there with  my own submissions… I don’t think this one will be one of those big success stories but hey, you never know!

Good luck!

Thanks Brandon!  I highly doubt this is a 9.8 but it is just fun to get to submit a book like this at all.  I also like to see the limits of what CCS can take care of!

This book I just sent to CCS has an indent on the front cover, not visible in the photo. I should have taken a photo, I’m not sure if it’s pressable or if I wasted $15.

This came sealed with trading cards, the indent was from the bag seal, non color breaking at least.

Hopefully it presses out for you!  The pics I took made it look a lot worse that I think it actually is and ended up just giving me one more thing to worry about :cry:

It maybe hard to see in this picture but this is another issue I have with same flaw as the issue I sent to CCS, right between the “r” and “a” of the title. It’s going to be a long 6-9 months for both of us.

This book has now been at CCS for six months and one day... has been 'CCS in Process' for about three of those six months now.

I am probably wrong, but to me, when I see 'in process' I take that as someone is actively working on the book.  Kinda like if your clothes are in the washing machine, or you are cooking dinner... stuff is happening towards the specific end in mind, such as clean clothes or cooked food.  I don't take dirty clothes laying on the floor, or food in the freezer as 'in process' for example.

Now, having said that... if this book has truly been 'in process' for three months IT IS GOING TO BE SWEET as all heck pretty darn soon!

I then hope that this is one of those lucky submissions I have been reading about where the book goes from graded to shipped in one day and then is returned to my loving arms in a crystal clear blemish free slab with that so so beautiful 9.8 WHITE PAGES sticker in the upper left hand corner.

In reality, it is probably just sitting in a box, getting kicked back to the end of the queue each time another in-house private signing takes place.

Anyways... I hope CCS has truly had their best people working day and night for three solid months to make sure this book flies through CGC and achieves that coveted 9.8 WHITE PAGES designation.

Will keep this Journal posted...

P.S. I still seriously doubt this book is actually a 9.8 but hey, a little denial never hurt anybody... did it?

A little bit of excitement this week!  Been like this since Monday morning… hope it’s one that gets through quick (a nice grade would be nice too!)!  Been refreshing and refreshing and refreshing and refreshing and refreshing…

At times I find myself getting really frustrated with CGC!  It’s not the TAT’s themselves but it is the unpredictability of them. Looking at the TAT thread and watching your own submissions statuses it’s easy to see that there is no discernible pattern to any of it… Tier Level, Fast Track (or not), size of submission. etc; none of it seems to matter.  Some people have Modern Slow Tracks turned around in THREE days (and I am happy for them)!  I don’t mind waiting in line as long I understand how the line works, watch it move in a predictable way, and see when my time is coming. CGC has done a wonderful job of ensuring that NONE of how they move books through their process makes ANY sense!  I have books I want to send in and also books I just want reholdered but I am not sending them because I really don’t understand what I am paying for any more… what’s the process, how long will my books be gone, or… shoot, will they get messed up with all the recent QC issues!!

But then I come down into my room and start digging through books and remember a submission like this…

…when I wanted to add this book to my set so bad I found and opened nine collectors packs and submitted multiple copies before finally getting these TWO back 9.8!

All my frustration seems to fade and my patience builds back up again.

Man I love the product but really wish CGC would at least fake caring about fixing some of their so obvious issues!

P.S. Here’s a link to Superman 76 second printing in my set if you want to see the whole story of how I ended up with two 9.8’s.
