    I am flattered someone would think I could do that sort of work. I didn't do it and I can't remember who did it. The procedure is actually pretty common place now. I have a super nice Batman 40 that I am sure will go through the process once it gets on the market.

    There are actually decent number of people constantly scanning auctions, comic stores, and conventions for upgradable books, and anyone that thinks "thats why I stick with raw books" is kidding themselves. A ton of raw books jgo through the process. Where do you think new pressers experiment end up

    No liquid used, it was dry cleaned, there was a dust shadow that was removed with gentle erasing. Same technique was used to remove the pencil mark which is easiest on a white background.

    I am going to get crucified for posting these but here is another good example showing how far dry cleaning techniques have progressed.

    This one shows how certain restoration can be removed. Pretty easy to tell they are the same book from the writing.

    There was actually a long list of books that went through the treatment. I saved several examples. Here are some of my favorites.

    My experience with Fedex shipping my books

    This just happened to my wife but she saw him coming to the door and opened it. The driver had to walk back to the truck and get the package.

    This day and age you have two choices 1. If you don’t know if a book has been worked on to improve the grade, assume it hasn’t and bid/buy accordingly 2. If you don’t know if a book has been worked on to improve the grade, assume it has and bid/buy accordingly. Personally I would say option 2 is the better path and then it just becomes a matter of looking at the pictures of the book to see if it has any of the damage associated with poor pressing that CGC doesn’t downgrade.
