Grading Comics

I have a few issues that I would like to have graded but I’m not entirely sure how to go about doing it and I have a few questions that hopefully you wonderful people can answer!

  1. How much does it cost? I have looked into the cost of doing it, but none of it made sense to me. They had different prices for different tiers and it confused me a bit.

  2. Time. How long does it usually take to have them graded and sent back? I’m sure they get plenty of entries but from anyone’s personal experience, how long did it take for you?

  3. Is it worth it? I have an issue of ‘The New Teen Titans’ issue #1 that I would like to hav graded, but I would like to know if it is worth paying, sending it in and waiting for it to arrive home safe and sound.

I would definitely get with your local comic book store. I know a few of them grade comics and most are really helpful and can point you in the right direction. I tend to stick to local just because I wouldn’t wanna send books off in the mail and something happen to them…it’s probably fine but that would be my luck to have a book be worth something and it be lost in the mail.
