My Comic Shop Consignment

Packaged up all of the books from my recent VCC booth and sales thread . I will be sending them off to My Comic Shop Consignment. Figured I would give them a try considering what other board members have posted about their results.  

I am sending in 34 graded books. This is the largest single shipment of graded books that I have ever sent. Due to my CIS policy I shipped Fed Ex.

Here is the invoice. 20211108_191037.thumb.jpg.b0c1f084eade0f691608302bca110252.jpg

Total of 34 CGC graded books all in one box. Measuring 21"×17"×18" total weight was 49.54 LBS. FedEx $85 should be there Wednesday.  20211108_120043.thumb.jpg.24593bc0af1477a5db8b63cd368f0f01.jpg20211108_191128.thumb.jpg.c2ca4804c90a0ac0b3336d35bbdba91d.jpg20211108_191200.thumb.jpg.1485c550f48294849de5294dd6fe5fb1.jpg

I'll be interested to hear how you do.  50 pounds of comic books - who'dve thunk it?

I definitely plan on posting the results as they happen.  Yeah.. although maybe half of that was my packing material . :roflmao:

Double layer cardboard box lined with the same thick cardboard honeycomb CGC uses. Then two layers of foam board around each interior side. Followed by 1 sheet of foam board between each CGC case. Roughly (20) of the $1 sheets of foam board.

labeling your package outside of the addresses doesn't help squat.  Stickers that say fragile or whatever don't do anything.  They'll tilt your package and throw it, doesn't matter.

I get that. Also why I didn't really bother too much with them and only placed just a few. I definitely know if you label fragile they seem to take it as a challenge.  Still I do put some on it just in case I have to use my insurance.

Last night got notification that these were recorded, scanned, and ready for pricing .

This morning went to price them and realized that 8 of them MCS had never previously had and that those will still take some time for them to enter. 

I set the prices on the ones that were ready. Within the first 2 hours 3 had offers really close to my original ask price. I accepted those 3 and they have sold.

Nice.  I think you'll be very happy with the results.

Thank you so far I have been. Today got a few more offers. As of right now I already have sold 7 of my 34 books. Those were all offers that were close to my original list price and those prices were more than what I had set for the VCC and Board Sales thread. 

They sent me an email at 10am today telling me they sent a check for the first 3 sold books.

Sounds like your experience matches mine.  They have a lot of buyers through ebay and their own site and if you price around market you'll sell a lot.  I love this board but it doesn't have nearly as many buyers as mycomicshop
