Posted 10 hours ago I received this from CGC a few days ago, part of a shipment of 25 from them. Is this an example of Shaken Comic Syndrome, or something that went awry during encapsulation? What factors would help one make this determination?
The first pic is a scan of the entire book. The top right corner is folded over, as is a section of the right edge about a third of the way down. The closeups I took, particularly the one edge-on from the side, show pretty clearly the current state of things. I know those folds weren't there when I sent off the book, and I'd bet they weren't there when they left the Lake Mary Spa and Revitalization Clinic, either.
Either way, what are my options? If it's something that occurred during encapsulation, I would think CGC would be willing to reholder it at no cost. If SCS...? I'm assuming this is also an overcover issue? Thanks.
Extremely obvious SCS. Just for the record, encapsulation damage is extremely rare and doesn't look anything like this.
Right side impact caused book to slam into right side of case. Impact caused cover to slide between lid and tray which folded it over in two places.
Seller receives book from CGC, book looks fine so he takes pics and lists it on eBay. Book sells, Seller ships book to Buyer, but book is ripped up by the case during transit. Buyer demands refund. Seller is not very intelligent and believes Buyer somehow opened the case and swapped out the good book for a bad one. This scenario plays out multiple times every day. Get a clue people...CGC cases destroy comic books and always have. If you want to protect your comic books, get them out of those CGC plastic destruction boxes and put them into Mylar sleeves like a REAL collector. Don't be a sackless CGC zombie...grow some stones and learn how to collect like a man.
I have a similar situation and got back my x-men giant size #1 and it came back with a 1 and half inch crease on the upper right corner. not sure if it was damaged in shipping. There was only one book in the package and it was wrapped in bubble wrap. I called CGC however they stated to send pics so they can evaluate. See below and after pictures. does anyone know the resolution for these cases.
I finally got my X-men Giant size #1 back from CGC after it was damaged by CGC during encapulation. They stated they would repress and reslab free of charge. However the reslabbed book has even more damaged than the first book I received from CGC. see pics of reslabbed book. pics of the original are also in this email thread. Has this happened to anybody and what am I suppose to do now?
Basically they reslabbed the book and there is even more damaged which was not there from when I first submitted the book. SEE PICS.
