Graded Comic Book POD Museum Edition
We have modified our Graded Book POD's (again) to better fir the New CGC Slabs. As you may well know CGC changed to a new slab design that was a little thicker than their previous one causing it to stick out the back of our POD's a little. Well, with this latest revision of our Graded Book POD's we have increased the depth of the pocket in the frame where the slab sits allowing for a much nicer, flush fit with the back of the frame. We hope you approve!
The Graded Book POD is the perfect solution for displaying your standard sized CGC, CBCS or PGX Graded comic book and the Museum Edition adds the protection you desire while your book is on display. With the Museum Edition Frame we include one 99% UV Filtering Clear shield Slab Protector sheet. The full view window shows off your entire slab including the registers label.
These frames are specifically designed to fit any Standard Sized CGC/CBCS/PGX Slabs, they will not fit the thicker cases used for Giant Size, King Size, Annual, etc. We do offer custom frames that are thicker and designed to hold such slabs, if you do not see the listing for the thicker frames on our site please contact us at email@example.com.

I ordered two frames, one for a graded comic, and one for an ungraded comic. Both frames are very high quality and well made. While the ungraded one was pretty much a perfect product, the graded version have a couple of small caveats.
For one, graded comics seem to come in slightly different dimensions. While a brand new CGC graded comic fit perfect, PGX comics were a bit loose, and would show a space at the top between the frame and the graded comic's case. I remedied this on mine by inserting two q-tips between the graded book and the frame at the bottom, to pick it up a little and fill that space.
The other thing is the UV protection. The ungraded comic frame came with a thick uv protective piece of acrylic, while the graded version utilizes a stick on film, adhered to the front of the graded comic itself. It doesn't leave residue, but I found getting it applied without noticeable bubbles problematic, and I didn't care for the look of it once it was applied.
That being said, still an excellent product at a very good price. Moving forward, I'll likely just opt out of the UV option for the graded ones, unless they come out with an upgraded version that uses an acrylic piece like in the ungraded version.
I ordered this product as a way to display a graded comic purchased for my Wife's birthday. I chose to go with the UV protected option to add some additional protection from the Sun. The uv protection is just a clear sticky film (think Cell phone screen protector). The CGC case is not totally flat which caused a mass amount of air bubbles no matter how careful it was applied. In the end we tossed it and just used the Frame. The Frame is fantastic and I highly recommend them to anyone. It appears to be a wooden base coved in a plastic finish. It looks great and was very easy to hang.
If you're looking for a way to frame those oddly shaped CGC hard cases this is it. You've found it. The UV protective film does take some work to apply to the surface, but once it's on there it's crystal clear and can be easily removed and reapplied. Really great looking product and I LOVE the way the case sits in the frame. Really beautiful way to display your favorite issues.
Love the frames, they are well made, very handsome and easy to line up with each other
I recieved all frames in secure packaging, and without trace of damage. Frame its self is great for hanging CGC comics, simple, but have slick look. Just hope UV protection sheets are tailored to fit new slab of CGC, but can easily fix by pair of scissors. This is just a minor gripe on this great product. Best part of buying from this site is the wonderful customer service via Facebook chat. Would recommend to others and use their service for future business.
I am very please with the quality and feel of this frame. But most especially the look.
Definitely exceeds expectations.
Nice frame construction. The powder paint finish is nice, but needed to be touched up in a few areas on one of the frames received. The clips that hold the slab in place are not flush to the frame preventing the frame from being flush mounted as designed with the built in mounting hole/slot. The slab protectors received with the frames and the three purchased were disappointments. I have left a separate review for the Clear Shield Slab Protector.
These frames are everything I hoped they would be & more. Excellent quality, very well made. They look so clean & sharp hanging on the wall. You get what you pay for quality wise here- these were definitely worth spending a little more money on than some cheaper and more poorly made options I have tried. These are a great value. They are super easy to change out, and I feel very safe displaying my most prized comics in these & love they way they look on the wall. Tony was super helpful answering my questions before I placed my order & made sure everything shipped to me in time to give for a gift. Highly recommend! Will definitely be back to purchase more :)
Great looking frame. Looks really good with the graded comics in there! Just wished the clip that you screw into the back to hold the comics in place was thinner so the frame can fit flush on the wall. Otherwise great product!
