Advice on first comic book submissions at C2E2

Postby SoundwaveG1 » Tue Mar 08, 2016 9:43 pm

Hi. I plan on going to C2E2 comic convention in Chicago this March. And I plan on having Art Adams and Mike Mignola sign some of my comic books and get it witnessed and slabbed by CBCS. Should I add a label with my name, address, cell phone # and/or e-mail to the back of the backboard and in front of the mylite bag to indicate who owns and submitted the comic book to CBCS? I remember reading a thread on CGC's forum advising to do that. This will be my first ever submission to a comic book grading company. Thanks ahead for any answers.

I've never submitted from a con, but the way I understand the process is once the comic has been removed from the bag it arrived in (obviously prior to grading) that's the last time they're together, but I could be wrong.
As long as the form is filled out correctly, that should be enough.

That's my 2c, anyway.

You shouldn't have to do that for any slabbing company that's organized and professional.

Why are some comic collectors so proud to have fake OCD? Is it cool to pretend to be mentally ill?

I wonder what exactly these companies do with all these bags and boards. I wonder how many are actually worth reusing (Mylar/Acid free). Probably a bunch of cheapos out there not wanting to "throw away" there good B&B's so they ship their submissions in poor B&B's

Take high-res scans of your books before you go, so as to make sure you get back what you submitted.
High-res scans have a way of showing tiny flaws that you can't see with the naked eye. They give the book a sort of "fingerprint."
