  1. Hi, I'm new to the boards. I have a question about what I perceive to be a comic flaw, but almost never see mentioned. From time to time I purchase a graded comic and notice a slight translucence to the cover (obviously most often in the white areas where there is no ink coverage). You can slightly see through the paper to the inks on the inside cover or first page. Sometimes this is quite noticeable. It might not technically be considered a flaw, but it's unsightly and if pictures ever showed it more clearly I'd avoid buying those books. I almost never see this with raw books...only graded ones. Which makes me wonder if this is possibly the result of books being heavily pressed? Can this happen naturally when books are kept tightly packed or somehow stored improperly? Any insight or information about this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
  2. Do you mean the face of the plastic itself is cracked, or the case is split where it's joined? I have around 100 cgc graded books and none (to my knowledge) have any small cracks anywhere in the cases. Doesn't sound normal.
