Just got here
Just sent in first submissions.
Just started collecting comic books 1 yr ago and just joined CGC this past month. I am now 22 yrs of age, somewhat of a late bloomer i guess. I started with modern comics but quickly made the jump to the more desirable and more attractive silver and golden age. Now I'm looking to get some of my own books graded and so recently joined CGC.
I have submitted 4 comics that have sentimental value. Payed myself so I don't waste my coupon on elementary comics. I also wanted to test my own grading merit, which I'm sure is quite ignorant and subject to bias, and also to familiarize myself with the process. My submissions are as follows:
Wolverine 1 Djurdevic variant- First comic I ever bought 9.4
Walking Dead 27 9.2
Green Lantern 2nd series 40 6.0
Action Comics 304-First silver age comic purchased. 5.0
These are my estimated grades. I can't wait to get these back and be disappointed!!! Just kidding I will be happy with any grade and really want to compare my expectations vs reality to help evaluate comics and future submission possibilities.
Reading all these different journals from all of you guys just gets me super excited to really turn my collecting into full gear. Reading the CGC graders experience I hope I never reach that point and am glad I'm a newbie and have so much to discover.

Yes, welcome to the Uber-OCD-about-graded-comics club! I've been in the CGC collecting side of all this for about three years now and let me tell you, once you jump in with both feet, U R HOOKED! Be careful or you may wind up completely broke!

Welcome to the Boards.
I try to imagine my collection as what could sit on the bookcase shelves of a slightly compulsive teenage boy who collects every Marvel, circa Christmas 1966. The collection would sit in neat piles beside a ball glove and an Aurora model of the Mummy. Perhaps a small set of "Lost in Space" trading cards, with an elastic band around them, would be nearby.

This is my sig.There are many like it but this one is mine.
Call me Oak,Oakland,Oakman,David or Dave,just don't call me a cab. Every collection,from the most valuable Golden age,to the readiest of reading copy Moderns,is assembled with care and thought,and is worthy of respect because of it,if for no other reason.RMA
