Grading

We pride ourselves with giving a fast and efficient service. Also in the fact that we use very high grade materials to protect your investments. Our comic slabs are acid free and protect against 99% UV light. We use various protections to help prevent counterfeiting and insure you know what you're getting. Your comics will be added to a database on this site to easily access pictures and notes.

We currently are grading comics but we will be adding certain cards and coins also.

We charge a flat fee of $30 per comic. Most of this goes towards the price of materials needed. This price does not include the cost of shipping. We use USPS priority mail (2-3 business days) with the base amount of insurance ($50). If you would like to be charged for a higher insured amount you can, but aren't required to. It is your responsibility to send them to us using a method that will protect your items. Typically it takes 1 business day per 25 comics to process. You could have your items back as soon as 3 days from when we get them.

Process

While there is a good deal of correlation with the Overstreet Guide, we do take other factors into consideration before assigning a final grade. Mainly the quality of the overall visual appeal and structural integrity. Flaws found on the cover carry more weight than those on the backside. Flaws that are harder to notice carry less weight. Flaws are all noted but certain factors could affect the final score.

Visual appeal is broken up in the following way: A book that has the appeal of a typical:

0.5-1.8 = Very Low appeal

2.0-3.5 = Low appeal

4.0-5.0 = OK appeal

5.5-7.0 = Good appeal

7.5-8.5 = High appeal

9.0-10 = Very High appeal

In general, a book that is incomplete or has water damage will not be helped because of it's visual appeal level. The only partial exceptions being very minor water damage (not on the cover) or an ad clipped that doesn't affect the story. Restoration is noted but depending on the quality and amount of it, it may or may not have an impact besides being noted.
