  1. Let me know what you have and at what price. somewhere in the lower grade ranges acceptable, but would I prefer a very low to lower grade copy, missing CF/pages, cover pieces missing OK, trying to keep this somewhere around $500 and below, but will go a bit higher for the right copy. The back cover needs to be mostly complete and not missing. Will pay a very respectable at or above market price or well above for the right lower grade copy. If you have any leads, please let me know.
  2. I was told by the CGC moderator in the ask CGC a question section that both books should be good if they are coming from a CGC P resto label. The only time cleaning is not conservation is when it is poorly done and fades/washes the colors etc. It looks like I have 2 great candidates for the new partially blue conserved label. P.S. That goes for the tear seals/reinforcement also. It needs to be professionally done with archival materials and not super glue etc. or it does not qualify.
  3. Unless it shows well otherwise and the owner wants it protected in a nice slab to show off. Do the CGC value service at 10% off, not really for making profit, but maybe still worth it to him?
  4. I have a Hulk #1 just like it. As is you will get a 1.5 blue label that looks much better. For example, my Hulk 1 (that otherwise looks VG-) got a 1.5 with the same issue. Truth be told given how well it shows and it being a coupon that's not a story page, GPA gets you really close to 2.0 area, but if it looks FN or better, then request the green level and probably get even more. You can request the green label in these situations, otherwise I think they default to the blue label 1.5.
  5. I have two Early purple label restored All Star Comics. Both had slight (P) with one only having a tear seal and reinforcement and the other the same, but with a cover cleaning. Now that they have conserved blue labels for such books that have no color touch and no pieces added etc. Do they both qualify? The first one for sure, but the cleaning one is a gray area as it says some cleaning allowed in conserved books (but not all cleaning I suppose?). I have also seen newly restored books graded with cleaning and still the purple label, not the conserved label, so I just need to know if I should ship both books back to CGC for reholdering into the new conserved label or just the one that does not have the cover cleaning??? Can anyone help with this question???

  7. Last I checked, it was against official board policy/rules to ask extra for paypal fees.
  8. Sweet .5!!! If only we could go back in time and tell some kid, DONT PUT TAPE ON THE SPINE! Without tape, I would think it to be closer to a 1.5?
  9. Wow, I would buy key 6.5's all day long at that looked that nice! Go out and look at some graded books in that range and you will see this one has many more upper level attributes than vast majority of 6.5's. It does have a fair amount of spine ticks that drop it a bit, but you have to weight the whole book overall. I would be happy with a 7.5 but has a chance at 7.0. I would bet money it gets at least one of those two grades.
  10. 5.0 but probably 5.5 if you get a press and dry clean.

  17. So I ended up the high bidder on ComicLink for their CGC .5 (wrong back cover) AF 15 copy at $3,935. I know because I was there live to outbid the other guy that was going back and forth against me the last day or so. I was like woo hoo, I stayed to the very end and won this at a great price, no other bids after mine at the auction end, per their auction listing! I went back later that evening only to find another bid had been slipped in exactly $100 higher than mine after the auction closed! I sent a big email to Josh directly (I have been ordering from him when he was pretty much a 1 man shop back in the day) to ask how this could of happened and got NO RESPONSE. Kind of kills the integrity of comic auctions to have a bid overtake the winning bidder AFTER the auction ends! Anyone else ever hear of anything like this happening before? Something similar happened to me at Heritage once, but it was way back in their early days, they at least apologized and gave me a $50 credit on next purchase. (It still sucked, but at least They have some customer service skills and responded!) I am betting someone at ComicLink figured I would not notice I was outbid after the auction close unless I had been online watching the very last moments live??? Anyway, when I saw what had happened after getting so excited for most of that day it was like...
  18. Just because one crazy sale at $85K with worse pages (not sure the Stan Lee signature on slab is worth much?), dont think that this issue is suddenly worth more than that. A Blue Label 2.5 sold for $80K this past year and a nicer looking 2.0 that was unrestored and qualified just for an original married cover sold for $25K. 3.5 to 4.5 blue label copies also sold for $129K and $143K respectively this past year and those should be worth multiples of what a 1.5 is worth! That being said this is an amazing grail to own and a very nice looking 1.5, but looking at the whole grade vs price spectrum, it does not indicate that you will get as much or more than they got on that one highly abnomal 1.5 sale even if you re grade and it comes back 1.8 or 2.0.
