David - That's very impressive as you have purchased all on the secondary market! I've been diligently subbing my own where I can't buy them. I'm down to about 70, if you don't count the TPBs and VVSS books. About 80 if you do. It's definitely a slog right now, and that last Bloodshot book is driving me nuts! I've got a couple Rai issues that I've found impossible to find good copies of.
Much more impressive is you are down to only 70ish.

I do not have access to many raw books so need to rely on others to submit and sell.

As far as I can tell only one regular issue (excluding newsstand books) has never been submitted:

Bloodshot 44

and of all the books submitted only 6 do not have a 9.8 copy yet (I don't think there is anything special about these books as many Valiant issues have less than 5 copies submitted):

Ninjak 25
Secrets of the Valiant Universe 1
Secret Weapons 11
Turok, Dinosaur Hunter 18
Turok the Hunted 2
X-O Manowar 45

 
I really wish more people would submit TPB. As I do not believe even a single copy of any of these TPB have been submtted:

Magnus Robot Fighter: Invasion 1 (/94,Valiant)
Solar - Second Death (1994) trade paperback (MAR 1994)
The Valiant Era Trade Paperback (3/94,Valiant)
Unity 1 TPB (Diamond)
Unity Saga 2 (7/94,Valiant)
Unity Saga 3 (7/94,Valiant)
Unity Saga 4 (7/94,Valiant)

I would love to get both Magnus TPB in 9.8 and I am surprised how well Unity sold that most of the Unity TPB have never been submitted.

Bloodshot 44! Bane of my high grade raw experience! It's not an easy issue to find, and it has the nice glossy cover, but every time I find one, it's a 9.6.

I haven't yet updated my inventory, but likely will by the end of the summer. However, all of the issues you list as not having a 9.8 is confirmed by me. I think I finally found a few raw candidates for these, but I haven't submitted anything in almost 2 years. I'm super behind. Maybe by the end of summer I'll get it sorted out and many submitted. For example, I found a couple candidates for Turok Hunted 1-2. That black Secret Weapons 11 is really hard.

I agree on the TPBs. I have a few, but I just don't see them that often and people tended to put them on a shelf instead of a bag and board. I've gotten lucky a few times.

I've become really knowledgeable about the various defects in Valiant issues after having purchased collections and raw candidates across the country. You get to know the books really well. There are probably only a few of us more knowledgeable than CGC on this point - CKB for example. There are just some books that I wonder if they truly exist in 9.8 or if the defects aren't across the board. Magnus 5 is a defect prone book, but clearly, there are many 9.8s that exist. Still, Bloodshot 44?

My understanding is that CGC does not want to grade that type of book size anymore.

Are they stopping grading TBPs in general? The book isn't that much thicker than a regular TPB

I do not know. It was thru their customer service chat. I was inquiring about grading Inherit the Earth TBP and the person told me they were not doing that type of book. This was 3-4 years ago tho.

Diamond TPB unity 1 came back yellow, with an autograph by frank miller =). CGC did note the autographs on the interior, and the holder was damaged, it's being reholdered now.
