FINALLY got my first submissions back from CGC today.

No online tracking, and it took so long that I literally forgot about them, was confused when I received notice of the package.

Pissed at the lag time (I submitted on-site at Wizard World Philly on June 20th; received them Oct. 17th -- just shy of four months).

Pleasantly surprised by the grades.

Magnus # 29 (hardest to find issue by far - this is only the 4th copy on the census): Expected: 9.0. Received: 9.4

Believe partly this was a Pedigree bump - it's one of two Susha News copies.

Magnus # 36: Expected: 9.4. Received 9.6 (tied for highest graded)

Magnus # 37: Expected: 9.4. Received: 9.2 (single highest graded)

Magnus # 39: Expected: 9.2. Received: 9.2.

So, I won out: Two better, one worse, one as expected, and one (the rarest) fully two grades better than expected.

Goes a long way towards completing my Magnus set.

I'm now missing slabs of only two issues (# 43 & # 45), which I'll have to source and sub myself.

Further, I'm now only missing seven issues below 9.4 (note that they're almost all the 70s reprint issues):

# 3, # 33, # 37, # 39, # 43, # 45, # 46.

The goal was to have 1-46 in average 9.4 or better. I'm already there, with 26/46 in 9.6 or better.

Btw, has anyone tried CBCG yet? I would love to hear how their cases compares to CGC's.

Give us pictures and a details about the cases when you get them back. I want to compare services, prices and quality.

FYI, I'm submitting my second batch of Magnus comics (5 of them, from # 43-46) to CGC Monday.

Because CGC recently rolled back its definition of "Modern" to "1975-present" I'm submitting these as "Modern Fast Track." Suspect I'll get them back before MLK Day (15 day supposed biz turnaround, not including holidays). We'll see...
