EBAY AUCTION -THE ULTIMATE COLLECTOR EXPERIENCE: LUNCH WITH CGC! Grading and restoration detection class "basics 101"
Chances are if you're going to Wizard World Chicago, you're a hardcore comic collector. Well, we have the ultimate behind-the-scenes experience for you…

A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to spend some quality time and get the ultimate inside scoop from the grading and restoration experts at CGC, our hobby's only independent third party certification company. CGC President and Primary Grader Steve Borock will show just ONE lucky winner how top-flight grading is done and how restoration is detected. THE RESTORATION DETECTION PART ALONE COULD SAVE YOU THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS IN THE FUTURE WHEN BUYING COMIC BOOKS!!! Borock will bring some comic books to point out specific grading differences and show you how experts detect restoration. If they wish to, the winner can also bring up to 10 of their own comic books as well.

This has been done only ONCE by CGC in the past, and may never be done again! It could be your only chance to learn what a lifetime of experience in our hobby as a collector and a seller, grading for Sotheby's and Christies auction houses, spending eight years at CGC, and having graded over one million comic books has taught Steve Borock!

Not only that, but after your hour-long class you will enjoy a free lunch with Steve (No books graded at lunch, don't want to get food on our comics!). The class and lunch will take place near Wizard World Chicago's Rosemount Convention Center on Friday, August 10. The grading/restoration "class" will begin at approximately 12 PM. Winner must go to the CGC booth no later than 11:45AM at Wizard World Chicago to meet up with Steve. Lunch is on Hero and at a fine local restaurant, and we ain't making no guarantees, but maybe there will even be liquor!

IMPORTANT! PLEASE READ: There is to be no bidding by any owners, employees, or family members of any type of collectibles grading service for this auction. No guests allowed to be brought along with you.
