Comic Grading

Finally got that Grail Book you have been looking for here at WonderCon.
Thinking about submitting it to CGC or CBCS?
Let Major Payne handle your submission for you.

WHY SUBMIT WITH US?

Because “We take the pain out of collecting!”

  1. We offer one of the most secure and protective processes to submit your collectibles to CGC or CBCS.
  2. We are dealers for both CGC and CBCS, and have submitted over $1,000,000 worth of comics for grading over the past 4 Years. Our facilitation services offers the highest levels of protections for your collectibles in the industry.
  3. We are NOT a Mom and Pop comic shop. We are a C-Corporation that specializes in Concierge, Investment, and Brokerage Services for Entertainment and Sports Collectibles that offers personalized service for the casual to the most avid of Collectors.

HOW?????????

  1. We start with providing you with Hi-Resolution Scans of your items before they are submitted.
  2. Once submitted, your Collectible is insured throughout the entire grading process by Lloyd’s of London, the World’s Oldest Insurance Company.
  3. When your book has been graded, it gets delivered right to your door. We handle the entire process and offer you personalized, transparent customer service by notifying you when your collectible goes through each step of the grading process. We manage any issues, so you don’t have to waste time or worry about your books.

WHAT WE DO

  1. Our process starts with all items scanned, front and back, with a Hi Resolution Scanner, minimum of 600 DPI. Why? So we can see what the grading companies will see ahead of time and ensure that we document the condition of your collectible as soon it is received. Hi-Res Scans can show the smallest of issues to help determine any potential problems with the comic’s condition and grade.
  2. Our Client services provide you with personalized service throughout the grading process. All scans are uploaded to your own Cloud Folder, along with all paperwork needed to process the submission. We use this folder to update you with any information given as your comic gets graded. We provide you with a service contract to ensure your collectibles are handled properly.
  3. We insure your comic submission through Lloyds of London, the Oldest Insurance Company in the World. Why? If anything happens from the moment we receive it from you, until you get it back in your hands, it’s covered. Lost or Damaged during any time of the submission, we handle the issue and claim directly with Lloyds, and you get reimbursed*; That simple.
  4. We keep you updated throughout the entire grading process, and your graded books are delivered right to your door.

Our mission is simple: "We take the pain out of collecting".

We provide you with a sense of transparency through the process and safeguard your collectibles like you would expect them to be.
