  1. I have x-men #1. How much will that cost me to get it graded and prossed. Do you use GP A last sold value on the graded value? Say that value is $10,000. Do you charge $300 for grading and $300 for pressing? Thanks
  2. I checked with CGC and the books were submitted under the presser's account with delivery to my home. Don't know if the presser can pull them back.
  3. Will do. I started the last one because it contained all the details of the transaction. I did not realize the threads would be merged. My mistake.
  4. That's resaonable. The 46 are with CGC so I haven't seen his work, but he has a very good reputation.
  5. I think I will reach out to his attorney who was handling the stolen books and tell them that I need settlement because they were stolen/lost.
  6. Thanks for the thoughtful post Lpgk, small claims court is a hassle and collecting (if I win) could be a problem- good point.
  7. He said they were stolen, but then said he had them, then he lost them.
  8. Thanks for the advice Funnybooks. I do not know if he is on the boards, but I like the idea of an intermediary.
  9. I did not know that thread would be moved to Comics General and did not look for it.... my bad. This thread has all the detail not included in the original thread.
  10. If I were to comprimise that could be a possibility. Thanks for throwing that out.
  11. He has not responded to the last email- not sure how I get the money unless it's small claims court...
  12. Hello, I need the boards help regarding a dispute I have with a presser. He lost two of my comics and has offered to pay me amount much less than their value. I’m not saying the name of this person- I replaced his info with 'Presser' in the email string. I don’t want to share his info if I’m out of line on this. The comics are Hulk #180 and X-Men #94. In April of last year I sent 48 books to X for pressing and forwarding to CGC, he processed the 46, but called me in early June to tell me that these two were stolen. He apologized and said he would keep me updated; his attorney sent me a couple of emails about the process. Later, on June 24th he emailed me those comics were not lost, he had misplaced them instead and they were working on them. Later on the phone He said he would submit the two without charging me because of the mix-up. I said thank you for the kind gesture. In February of this year I called him to see if the two books had been submitted. He said he wasn’t sure and then said they were lost. Needless the say this was a shock. We then began to talk about options to resolve this via text. Below is the text string – This is my first action since that last text. Bottom line is we agreed on a value of 6.0 for each book. He offered $900 based on combined 2020 GPA values and I want $2,100 for 2021 GPA values. Since he led me to believe he had the comics as recently as June 24th, 2021, reimbursement value should be based on that. I am asking your advice – your thoughts? EMAIL STRING: Presser Feb 17, 2022, 9:59 AM to me As best as I can tell, they both look like they would be 6.0's ish after press, would you agree? -Presser Chris Hooper <chris.t.hooper@gmail.com> Feb 17, 2022, 1:07 PM to Presser Hi Presser, I think that's about right. What's the best way to find the value? Chris Presser Feb 23, 2022, 9:20 AM to me I use gpanalisys.com. This tracks sold cgc books, and then I look at 6.0 2021 average. Hulk 180 averaged $550 X-Men 94 averaged $370 Raw is worth less, but to be fair I give the books the benefit of the doubt. So I would be willing to do a total settlement of $950. Chris Hooper <chris.t.hooper@gmail.com> Feb 24, 2022, 4:49 PM to Presser Presser, I think using GPA works, however you used 2020 averages. 2021 averages are $954. and $1175. That totals $2,129. I would except that. Chris Presser Feb 25, 2022, 7:56 AM to me Okay, but it's including time after incendent, so your value includes data after the fact. My original offer stands, and is fair considering the books are raw.

You need to stick to your word and use 2021 numbers. As recently as a few months ago you said you would submit the comics and pay for the cgc grading and slabbing cost because of the delay. When I followed up with you, you tell me you didn't have them. What am I to believe? First you say they're stolen now you can't find them even though you implied you had them. This is not acceptable. Chris Presser Feb 26, 2022, 8:22 AM to me 2021 was a typo. I am sorry about this whole ordeal. Total losses exceed 60k, but insurance payout was 35k. I am taking a huge loss, in an attempt to make everyone else whole. This isn't a buy and sell, this is me trying to do the right thing. I can't afford what you are requesting. Keep in mind we are using GPA average, but I could be going be lowest sale. While my offer isn't a boon, I feel it's within the fair range, and I won't be pressured for more.

I empathize that the theft was a bad deal and very expensive for you. Our issue is a separate matter and I should not be shortchanged because of that. You have a responsibility to make this right. You received my books, told me they were stolen, then told me they weren't stolen, then told me you lost them and now want to pay me much less then they are worth. I want to resolve this, but not at $900 using 2020 values. I am trying to think of ways to solve this: Do you have any comparable slabbed books? If we can't come to an agreement, then I will pursue other options such as court, BBB etc. Chris
  13. Thank you everyone for your input. I don't want to out this person, because it's been a civil discussion and I like the guy. My problem is that he offered to pay me less than half of the value because he had another big insurance claim and can't afford it. I'll redact the personal info and make my post on Comics General. Thanks again, Chris
  14. Hello, I am not sure where to post this- I sent a buch of books to a popular presser and he says he lost the two most expensive books. I have more detail to post explaning the situation, but need to know where to post it. One of the books I had submitted to this board for grading. Thanks, Chris

  17. Just got two books I ordered from John. Very well packaged and good prices. Would definitely buy from him again.!!
  18. Yes on small tear, I don't remember a stain on the back though. I've already sent it to CGC so I cannot confirm.....
  19. It's on the way to CGC. Thank you for the input...
