the rest of the story is that the "gianni amato" guy sold the comic book stores/business to someone else named "Ed" or "Eddie" or something who was later found out to be the "comicart1" handle. So "Gianni Amato" is not "comicart1" as previously stated. The entire CBC post was immediately invalidated and proved to be a sham (possibly invented and manufactured by the CGC mods but who knows). The poster on this board must be one of those guys who tried to say that Vault was a scam or whatever. Wouldn't be surprised if they tried the same thing with CBCS. Thanks for all the accuracy - you are real "ass"et to this thread. Nice try though and thanks for telling the whole story
It was Eddie that I bought from. He sent me a message via eBay and listed his name. It is Eddie that I believe didn't ship the book because it sold to cheap - something two other buyers say in the feedback. And Eddie that in recent feedback that stands accused of shilling his auctions.
I actually told "Eddie" that it didn't really matter to me what Vault graded book he sent me, I just wanted to see the holder and get a idea of what a NM/better Vault graded book looked like. So send me anything. He then messaged me and said the PO had found my book and I'd be getting it soon. Which I never did of course. The USPS website shows to this day that the tracking number's status is "electronically notified". They never got the book.
I don't see how Gianni Amato selling the business affects the accuracy of anything having been said. Comicart1 is the owner of Vault Grading, he sells books he graded himself on eBay and there are buyers feedback complaints of shill bidding and not shipping items that sell to cheap. I should have left negative but since his Ms Marvel 1 sold for $10 nearly all of his auctions have been BIN (or shilled)
The conspiracy theory that the CGC mods made up all negative comments on the Collector Society Message boards is just silly.
