  1. Thanks - I'm not going to do it, but I was curious if this was some sort of loophole in grading.
  2. I have a copy of Hulk 1 1.5, but it’s cover and back are fully split and detached. Theoretically speaking, could I crack it, tape the cover and back together (on the inside), had the staples removed and reattached the cover (through the tape), and as long as I didn’t use archival tape, could it still get a blue label? And would it grade higher cause it wasn’t split and detached anymore? Curious to hear thoughts on this..thanks!
  3. Can anybody shed some light on whats going on with this book...at first I thought it was just a lot of damage, but then I noticed its mainly in the black ink areas, seems to be overprinted by other colors and theres no damage to the non-printed areas at the edges...so it could be some weird production error. Has anyone seen anything like it?
  4. The weird thing about it is that it seems like its mainly a black ink issue, it doesn't occur very much in the yellow, plus its streaky...that why I'm thinking its related to printing. If thats so, how would cgc approach this? Also, its old label, so I doubt its been cleaned or pressed.
  5. Curious what this is...the cover looks really good but the back is a weird mess...but doesnt look like normal staining. Since its an old label I'm wondering if CGC would see this any differently now (if its a production issue that is). Any thoughts?
  6. I know its a long shot...Thanks!
  7. Thanks! yeah...great art for sure!
  8. Trying to figure out if its worth grading...thanks!!
  9. saw this...https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/523506078461243/
  10. Please tell me you're one of the graders!!
  11. I think the name is a holdover from a bygone era....as you know, it used to be a lot more popular. But shes been doing it for so long she knows whats resto and whats not, and she stays clear of it. But believe it or not, there are collectors that still want restoration - they dont care about grading, they just want a nice looking book. If you have any questions, you should drop her a note - she's a great resource.
  12. I wouldnt put her in the clean and press category...theres lots of people in that. Shes a paper expert and does amazing work (especially for high value, low grade stuff like this). I'd ask her for rates - you can contact the Restoration Lab or https://www.facebook.com/CicconiTRL/ or https://www.therestorationlab.com/page.php?page_id=9
  13. Actually, this is after its been inspected and cleaned up - hopefully its a 2.0, but I'm ready for a 1.8, or even a 1.5. It was done by Susan Cicconi at the Restoration Lab. Heres some before pix...
  14. Hey guys- these are the only pix I got...what do you think? (It was obviously already cleaned and pressed).
