Like all of my off to see the Wizard entries this is showing my submissions to CGC. Raw pictures, updates as I receive them, and final pictures ( well hopefully as with some of the others there were times they had to make return trips. [Which were also posted])

These were the books I chose to send in for Terry Austin.

This was shipped in the same box as my George Perez signing which was shipped on 1/19/22 and arrived 3 days later.

However It just got checked in yesterday.

Next is the John Byrne cover signed book. It came back a1647303201_2022-04-11-0005(2).thumb.jpg.21fd2280542bbb043339f032397a2aa6.jpg603899972_2022-04-11-0006(2).thumb.jpg.5496b068df47aaaa989a975ed7637576.jpg

I had hoped it would be higher , but do see why they could give it this grade. That said the back of the book it appears to be either a issue with the inner well or the got debris inside which is causing a bubble around it and looks like it has dented the book so it will have to go back. Hopefully they will be able to press that issue out ( maybe even an upgrade 
:wishluck:)

Close ups.

Next two I now have no real way of telling them apart so unfortunately they will both have to go back.

One is signed on interior page by both Terry Austin and John Byrne.  (Really though this would at least get the notation of writing on interior page and possible Green / Yellow label. ) would still take the hybrid label if they would just note that there is at least writing or :wishluck: signatures . 

The other is a Double Cover. No mention.  No separate inner outer cover grades.  :facepalm:

So again both of these and the other will have to make a return trip.. :pullhair:

so out of 4 of them 3 will have to go back. Will be contacting them in the next couple days for the label and Mechanical Error.  I will update through this process.

That’s a bummer!  Best of luck sending both of these back… those are some pretty big misses from CGC :facepalm:

Meant to update this, but took a trip to St. Augustine to visit family and watch my Niece and Nephews baseball games. 

I have sent the 3 back for Mechanical Error.  20220418_132955.thumb.jpg.22032a098c86c986aa4e2cdcfd96ab81.jpg

They arrived and have been checked in then moved to SFG on 4/25/22 hopefully this time they actually see/grade the double cover .

Last.  :censored:631629110_2022-05-12-0005(2).thumb.jpg.71a3be0d0e6aba2170669e8355a9aa68.jpg

So this book . I sent the first time for a press, clean, and signing.  CCS did clean the outside cover , but best I can figure they (Like CGC ) didn't even open it the first time [they missed the double cover] and just pressed it.

Now after they get it back they say the interior cover is a 6.5 and that both it and the insert are married?! :pullhair:

First of all if this book had happend any other time I might have shrugged and said maybe I missed it (although I seriously doubt it had staples looked untouched, all tight and had similar debris / discoloration as well as the cut of the covers.) 

Instead what I believe happened is that CCS cleaned only the outside cover then humidity/ press which now has caused the internal cover to look worse and when CGC got this back on its second trip they jump to married as the explanation of a lower grade cover inside. :facepalm: plus the insert?!?! 

It will have to go back yet again for a review as I think some new graded got his mits on this and just didn't know what he was looking at. 

Also see below as this is not the only book or reason it is going back

So now for the nasty surprise that was hiding and the reason all 3 have to go back.. again..again.... 146226336_2022-05-12-0002(2).thumb.jpg.8549c8161ecbad3ef09ba5803f235a66.jpg2141673816_2022-05-12-0004(2).thumb.jpg.bb7a566ded179d039fb5b9cd6b026946.jpg425171781_2022-05-12-0006(2).thumb.jpg.b3041b6e9bc4b5ec25b98090d9f4a1ad.jpg

hard to see in scan although still wanted to add these as you can see the inner well isn't really heat sealed well in random places on some of them, but the big issue. Puddling..

Me too.  At this point I hope they fix it all and that they apply my membership credit to my George Perez books since they will not be signed . That way I can just stop sending until they fix this complete fuster cluck . 

It is so sad to have CGC degrading to this point.

First.

 The double cover. This was sent back in for review by the "lead" grader due to the issue of them originally  ignoring the double cover , then for calling it married.:facepalm:

after this review it has come back.image.thumb.jpeg.051022d2ff846e4b2b8df6723e6d414e.jpegimage.thumb.jpeg.9d29333f77ee059cfe7b596494a400b9.jpeg

although this time it has Newton Rings right on the front cover over Superman's face and Austins Signature. :cry: 

3 times they have had this book and they still can't get it right..

considering that my Perez books have now made it back as well , I will be sending back these with Newton Rings , again, again, to get fixed.

I am not going to accept this until they are correct. CGC needs to get these fixed and stop creating more work for themselves.

Really bummed they are not getting this right for you!  Great books that deserve to be done right!  Best of luck this time!

 

Thank you.  I appreciate it. I am almost so tired of looking at these books now that once they are fixed I will probably be selling them.:wavingwhiteflag:
