    Modern Age date stamp

    Forgive me for “implying” or um, “inferring” the wrong impression. “It's not about added value, it's about the double standard for downgrades.” So if an older book from an “era” that frequently ink stamped newsstands does not get “ dinged” a downgraded, should a newsstand from the 1990’s get downgraded simply because some mom and pop store still ink stamped the book?
  2. Would anyone have any insight whether an ink date stamp (on the back cover in this instance) on a modern book would affect the grade with CGC? Another grading company's stance is "It is extremely rare for a comic from the 1990's to present to have a date stamp. Date stamps were widely used from the 1940's - 1970's and are accepted in the collecting community. By the 1980's very few newsstands and comic shops used date stamps and by the 1990's probably 1 out of 50,000 comics have a date stamp on it. Comics from 1990 to present are downgraded for date stamps in high grades, as it is almost unheard of to see that." With that explanation, it infers that a high grade 1990's Newsstand with a date stamp would be super rare....So why the downgrade? This does not seem to be the Overstreet Guide to Grading Comics stance as it is not specifically addressed concerning "modern" books. Any insight is greatly appreciated.
  3. I figured I'd ask you. Looking for a Red She-Hulk #59 Variant (2012)… Do you have one floating around?
