  1. Thanks for the information and your opinion. By the way, can you see why this book is considered to be trimmed along the entire right side of the book? I still have troubles understanding how this book could be trimmed with all of the wear on the edges. Figured you might have some knowledge. Thanks

  3. I’m not entirely sure how long they have been pressing for, but I’ve used one of them before on multiple occasions, and he’s done an amazing jobs on all my books, they present so much better. He’s also pressed many high end keys before, told me that it looks like my af 15 would get a grade bump if I decided to send it to CCS. So you think it’s not even worth the $50 to send it in for a screening with CCS?
  4. It’s seems as though I’ve been getting many mixed opinions on this, also posted in a CGC group on fb and recieved over 70 comments. Some strongly agree that with a good press it’ll get a grade bump, and others think it’s too risky, and may cause more damage. Have also shown the book to a couple pressers and they too think differently. But most people have agreed that it’s best to submit my book for a screening with CCS, and they’ll determine what’s best. If they recommend a press, than I’ll go from there.

    Here’s a pic to explain my last point. My copy is on the right.

    That could be a possibility for sure. However, when I looked at other trimmed examples with chipping on the cover, the spaces between the chippings would be perfectly straight, and look as though they received no wear at all, I don't see this on my copy. The only straight area on the cover is in the bottom right corner, and where I thought it had been trimmed. After my findings, it is impossible that bottom right edge could be trimmed, although it's straight, it goes to the very edge of the book. I can also tell because none of the artowork on the edge of the cover is missing, everything that belongs on the edge of the cover is there. I really wish CGC could have provided more detail in the notes about the trimming.

    After I finally bought the grader's notes, it says the ENTIRE right side of the book is trimmed, I thought it was just in a small area. I'm having a very hard time understanding how the entire side could be trimmed, with all of the wear on the edges.
  8. It's hard to tell with it being encapsulated, but the cover is very wavy in areas, especially around Spidey's head. From what I've heard, a press could definitely flatten it, but you think it would not affect the grade?
  9. Here they are, just updated my original post with them too. heavy creasing to cover multiple stain left top of back cover multiple tape cover multiple tape interior cover piece out right bottom of back cover small, multiple tear bottom of front cover trimmed full right of whole book I still have NO idea how the entire right side of the book could be trimmed, but that's not the point of this thread.
  10. Any chance you’d be willing to part with one of your lower grade raw copies?
  11. Hi All, Considering to get my CGC trimmed 1.0 Amazing Fantasy 15 pressed and cleaned by CCS, and resubmitted for grading. Was hoping to get your opinions on if a press is worth it. Could it bump the grade to a 1.5, 1.8, or even a 2.0? Do you recommend I pay $50 for a screening, or just skip it? Thanks, feedback highly appreciated.

    Thanks for the feedback everyone, appreciate it. I’m still very curious to know how CGC came to the conclusion that the right edge of the cover was trimmed. Here’s a comparison with 3 unrestored af 15s (mine is the first). I wonder if I got the book pressed to fix the spine roll and resubmit it to CGC, if they’ll still come to the conclusion that the edge is trimmed.

    Exactly, it boggles my mind! I think I’m going to upload a comparison picture of my book and other copies that are unrestored.

    It's just because I removed that question from my original post. Now I'm just wondering about the trimming. No worries!

    Thanks for the info. If I were to get it restored by someone who works at CGC, the Stan signature could remain authentic. I decided to remove that point at that end of my post. Mostly just curious about the trimming on my book.
