  1. CGC does not ding for a miswrap if it is manufactured that way and there's no way to grade this accurately without better pictures.
  2. Glad to see this old thread resurrected. That poster framed looks awesome. Would love to find another one of these eventually.
  3. I think this is a really unique art style especially on a comic book cover but how can a burnt cover be a 9.8?
  4. Bought a book off his sales thread and everything went smooth as can be. He accepted my offer quickly via PM and shipped it out promptly. Thanks again!
  5. Always a market to sell things to lazy human beings.
  6. Had a small order come in last month, after a 4 month wait - , the absence of newton rings is much better which I do appreciate but there are very minor rings on 5 out of 6 and almost every case had those marks mentioned above:
  7. Nope, nothing. Tried to track him down and contacted a few people with the same name in the same area but came up empty handed. More upset that I didn't get that cool GA book rather than the 100 or so bucks I lost. Oh well, lesson learned.
  8. I see you've made your decision but i'll just reiterate what others have already said, buy what you think presents the best for what you collect. Some collectors go for page quality over centering, others go for a better wrap over page quality. Me personally, I've seen 4.0's with lower page qualiy that present better encased than 8.0's that are miswrapped with better page quality. At the end of the day, it's your collection so buy what you would be most happiest with. Resale value is another conversation.
  9. A very subjective topic of which are the best modern covers and there's no way I could pick 1 or even a top five. Some of my favorite are: Moon Knight #55 Platt Venom First Host #5 Javier Garron Cover B Venom #150 Dell'Otto Variant The Immortal Hulk #1 Alex Ross Spiderman #700 Copiel variant Iron Fist #1 Dell'Otto Wonder Woman #51 Artgerm Spawn #1 Mcfarlane Xmen #1 Magneto and/or Wolverine/Cyclops cover Jim Lee
  10. It absolutely does devalue a book. For one, the signature isn't verified so it could be fake and secondly, it narrows the market to people who collect signatures and don't mind a green label. Most collectors I know won't touch a book with a green label. Neither would I.
  11. I'm personally not a fan of signatures especially on a CGC case but I get it....let's say you have a comic already graded but you really want the artist to sign it because you are into those things but don't want the green unverified signature case....the only option is to have them sign the case. Plus a green label usually devalues the book so imagine having an expensive book, really wanting a signature but not wanting to devalue it....the only real option is to have them sign the case.
  12. I don't understand why there's a level of acceptance to the problem and why so many people just shrug their shoulders about it. The pressure should be on CGC to fix the problem and considering this is their forum, they should be here explaining themselves.
  13. I went ahead and reported it. Might help for a few people to report it as a fake and note that the artist has confirmed it is not his work.
