What people think of Made-The-Grade Certified Collectibles

“I’m a comic book collector living in the South-east United States and have been a registered member of the CGC Collectors Society since 2007.

A couple of years ago I was growing ever more unhappy and frustrated with the  subscription service that I was using to acquire new CGC 9.8 graded issues as they were released. The service was missing as many issues as it was providing. The holes in my set were increasing rather than shrinking!

Making a long story short I changed to what is now “Made the Grade.”

They have especially paid close attention to - Variants -, a very important part of my collection, some of them as low in printing volume as 1 for every 300 regular editions printed, making it difficult not to miss an issue.

“Made the Grade” services are currently hitting a 90 to 95% success in  9.8 graded acquisitions for me. Their resources and experience are wide enough so it is rare that an issues is missed.

My - Fantastic Four with all Variants Set - is one of the top ranked sets in the CGC Registry. Currently the set has 485 out a possible 816 books, 71 of which have been supplied by “Made the Grade”, all in 9.8 grade!

Their efforts has not only provided a more reliable subscription service for new issues, but have proved very valuable in filling in a lot of back issues slots.

If your interested in a dependable resource for 9.8 grade books, I can’t recommend “Made-the-Grade” enough.”

I sincerely doubt that you will find someone better at this!

Nuff Said!
Made-The-Grade provides me with an invaluable service as a customer who is Active Duty Military and I am unable to attend conventions or my local comic book store. They have gone above and beyond in multiple dealings and requests and I have not once been left unsatisfied or disappointed. Made-The-Grade has un-paralleled service of providing CGC 9.8 comics. They get all the hard to find variants and their prices can’t be beat. They are a one-stop-shop for me and I don’t go anywhere else!!! I would recommend their service to all collectors, new and old, with nothing but absolute confidence.
As a longtime comic reader & collector, I spend a great deal of time on the message boards at CGC.  However, submitting comics to be graded has always seemed like a daunting process.  Having a membership to CGC, finding the book you want in the right condition, mailing it off, etc. . .  but that's no longer the case.  I was lucky enough to be introduced to Bill and his service, "Made the Grade", through a mutual friend on the boards.  Made the Grade makes the process simple and pain free.  I just request the book I'm looking for and they take care of it with the utmost professionalism.  Opening a package from Made the Grade is like Christmas morning all year round!!!  - "Doc" McCoy
"Made the Grade has made collecting fun and stress free!  It's a fast and dependable service, and you can always rely on your books being delivered in the highest quality.  I've recently increased my monthly pull list because the prices are right and the experience has been a blast.  I highly recommend Made the Grade's subscription service to both new and experienced collectors!" - Kevin B.
I started buying CGC graded comic books from Made the Grade over three years ago and I still have multiple subscriptions with them to this day. They have always treated me right, prices are fair and their customer service is second to none. There is no other place I would purchase my graded comic books from.  I would highly recommend doing business with Made the Grade. You will not be disappointed.

I have been using for years now. Not only have they met all of my expectations during this time frame, but they have gone above and beyond on many occasions to ensure I am pleased with my transactions. They have helped me build many #1 Overall Ranked CGC Registry Sets, which include East of West, The Sixth Gun, Peter Panzerfaust, and the 2014 Best Set in the Modern Age, Saga.
I can not recommend Made-The-Grade highly enough. If you want laser sharp corners, a 9.8 on your slab, and a dealer with A+ customer approval, you need to look no further than!

I started buying CGC Graded Comics from Made-the-Grade a year ago and was pleased with what I could get and how fast I could get a graded comic book after it was released.  Then when Marvel took Star Wars back I increased my demand because I wanted every comic that Star Wars issued.  I have been extremely happy since I have been able to get every issue, including all the variants and will continue to buy my CGC graded comics from Made-the-Grade.    Mark Gibson
