  1. I bought a Bronze Age comic listed as 9.8 condition. Front and back covers look great, everything looks ok except for an obvious printing error- The bottom corners of last 2 pages of comic weren't cut right and folded over diagonally in printing process. The 2 pages before that have a slight diagonal imprint line on same angle. See photos attached (shows front and back of these pages) Assuming there are no other flaws on book (there doesn’t seem to be), would this bring a comic down from a 9.8 grade, since it wasn’t damaged, but was printed this way? thanks-
  2. Thanks- lot of pages in there- would it be best to post there?
  3. Thanks- those aren’t page tears- both sides of the corner folds of the last pages are shown- was printed that way-
  4. Hi all- I’m not asking to grade this comic, but a question as to how a printing error (shown in pics) would affect a grade. I bought a Bronze Age comic listed as 9.8 condition. Front and back covers look great, everything looks ok except for an obvious printing error- the bottom corners of last 2 pages of comic weren't cut right and folded over diagonally in printing process. The 2 pages before that have a slight diagonal imprint line on same angle. Assuming there are no other flaws on book (there doesn’t seem to be), would this bring a comic down from a 9.8 grade, since it wasn’t damaged, but was printed this way? thanks-
  5. Canadian dollar May not be not equal to a US dollar, but it’s still a dollar, and same continent. Price box for each type of cover is square, unlike all other foreign variants I’ve seen, and the same size as well. Covers look so much like the US version that CGC states the actual higher cover price of Canadian editions on the CGC label. I’d be interested in what collectors of 1980’s Canadian Edition price variants (which for Marvel ran from late 1982-1986) think about them belonging to ‘complete with variants set’, and would be interested in what CGC thinks as well.
  6. I would have to disagree- they are indeed ‘price variants’ of the same currency, and within same continent. Pence variants are not identical to US and Canadian editions in that way. I think most Canadian editions I’ve ever seen for sale even included the words ‘price variant’ in the title of the listings. Foreign editions from any other countries have not.
  7. Again, the 1980’s Marvel Canadian editions are a carbon copy of the the US newsstand editions, with the exception of a higher price in the price box. They are price variants. I haven’t collected Pence variants (from 70’s?), but if the same is true with them, I believe they should possibly go into a ‘complete with variants’ set as well. However, Canadian Editions are set apart from other foreign editions in the following ways: - same release date as US edition - same currency as US (dollars, although Canadian dollar a diff. rate) - same language as US - Canada is in same continent as US - US issues released after 80’s Canadian editions stopped being produced show 2 prices in the same price box on cover: price for US and price for Canada.
  8. Not sure if there was a discussion, but the FF (Complete) set does NOT include these variants, just US editions. Only the FF (Complete with Variants) set was used for the Canadian editions- where else would they be placed? They are in English (as opposed to another language) and are price variants. As a matter of fact, issues from the 80s are exactly the same as the US newsstand edition, except for the difference in price. I would say that yes, your FF 112 variants would belong in that particular set as well.
  9. Are all of those in solid NM/M condition (no spine stress marks, rips, creases, etc on front or back cover)? If so, shoot me a message w prices- let me know which ASM in that solid grade as well- interested in 500, 698-700, and more in between.
  10. Just an update on the 2 ASMs shown- seler offered a full refund if I return, no problem- however, he had scans of these before he shipped them out- they showed the same flaws as they do now. SCS wasn’t the problem- perhaps it really was DWG (drinking while grading)? That leaves me wondering...
  11. Just curious- which issue of X-Men? new or old case? even though grading is ‘subjective’, I thought there were specific criteria that differentiated one grade from another...
  12. Thanks- is there a way to take without quoting? - the Catwoman 13 and Tec 15 newsstands are the ones on most looking for in solid NM/M shape, as mine were lost through FedEx, and trying to replace those. - if you have any of these New 52 #1 newsstands in solid NM/M shape, would be interested: Batgirl, Batman, Catwoman, Detective Comics, Justice League, Wonder Woman. - also may be interested in later newsstand issues of Batgirl, Batman, Catwoman, Justice League in same condition. - in case you have marvel newsstands from same era in same condition, may be interested in some ASM 500-700. Thanks!
  13. Thanks to all who responded- It seems that everyone agrees that based on the substantial color-breaking creases for these books, they would typically grade much lower than 9.8. I don’t think that these particular flaws come from SCS though; typically corner bends come from that from what I’ve seen. Is there any point at all in bringing up these assigned 9.8 grades with CGC? Anyone have experience with doing that?
