  2. New to double cover club with this...
  3. I just keep looking wistfully at original pricetags on the bags; 90p and £1.00. Looks like the previous owner had tried to sell these at some point, presumably a very long time ago. If only...
  4. Grade is now in. Originally I got this back from CGC; I submitted the book as part of the recent CGC signing with Shooter, Zeck and Beatty. Most of the guesses were on the right on the money. But did I not mention in my original post that this was a Double Cover? Bizarrely that was missed in the original grading, so I reached out to CGC team about the error. CGC team were great, arranged for the book to be returned and regraded with both the double cover grades.
  5. The difference between both auctions was that the WBN's at this one at least looked to be much higher grade.
  6. What price did the hammer drop? Not clear from the link.
  7. Looking for Secret Wars 3 and 4 (1st series) CGC 9.8 (OB) Signature series only
  8. In that case, given the scarcity of the non-blue galactus prints, perhaps they coud be called out on the label?
  9. Hi Matt, I hope you are well, another adds to the list. This time: Set: Enormous Book: Enormous 9 Variant Cover Certification Number: 0284171029 Slot added. Thank you
  10. Aware of the way CGC treats unverified signatures on books, but I wondered how addresses on a books cover would impact the grade/label. See the example below... It was common in the UK that newsagents would sometimes write the recipients address on a magazine/comic so the paperboy would know where to deliver said book and I recently picked up a high grade collection with this type of writing on almost all of the books. Assuming a book was a 9.8 (noting this example isn't btw), with the writing, how would it affect the grade? Would it get a blue or purple label?
  11. Trying to add newly graded books. 2 were able to be added but these three were not found. Can you help or advise? Thanks in advance.
  12. Just had first batch of my Jim Shooter Signing books shipped and it seems the concerns on how CGC are handling these books during these in-house signings may perhaps be well founded. I submitted 4 books, all in their original 9.8 slabs, which CGC cracked and prepped at $5 cost. Disappointed to report that, although 3 retained 9.8 grade, one book dropped to 9.6. As you can imagine and doesn't fill me with hope for the other 3 batches of books that I have also submitted for broader Shooter, Zeck and Beatty signing. The frustrating part is that they ALL should have retained their grades and CGC should do the best to make sure it retains the previous grade whilst in their care. Because they were all sent in their original graded 9.8s slabs I opted not to have this batch go to CCS for pressing (and nor should I have to really either). Amother frustration is that there are no graders notes to explain the grade drop, so completely in the dark on why they have decided to ping the book. Did it get damaged on CGC opening the slab, or the prep? Or did Shooter manhandle the thing? Luckily I have hi-res scans of the slab prior at least and will report back with comparison images prior to sending to CGC when I get the books back in hand. The worst part is that I rang customer service who sadly were far from their usual helpful selves and simply referred me to the T&C's, refusing to take to responsibility or help. Not like the team usually sadly... Caveat Emptor
