  1. So I went to my comic shop and I saw this copy, and decided to buy it. I usually am a Marvel guy but since this was the 1st team up with Lex Luthor and Joker (personally my favorite DC villains), I decided to get it. How would you grade this comic? And would you get this graded (saw there was only 39 graded in the census)? This is the first time I’m using a printer to scan the comic, so please let me know if more pics are needed. One thing to note: the centerfold is detached from the bottom staple, still attached to the top staple. Please let me know your thoughts, and thank you very much!
  2. 1.5 for me, I have a copy that also had the cover detached and some scribbles on the front and back cover. Still worth getting slabbed regardless of condition!
  3. I just sent this to CGC for the Roy Thomas in house signing, I will let you all know how it comes out for grading! And thank you everyone for giving your opinions on the grade!
  4. 2.0 for me, congrats on having the book. Cover still looks attached, are their any spine splits on the book?
  5. Not gonna lie I was thinking more like 2.0 or 2.5, I will be very happy if this comes back as a 3.0! I'm going to get the package ready with all the books I want to ship this week. Thank you all for the opinions and critique, I really appreciate it!
  6. The ink will affect the grade, I actually experienced that a couple months ago when I sent in my ASM #121. I'll attach a link of my comic in this to show that inking affects it (scroll about 1/2 way down and I have the grader's notes on my book). For what I would grade this, I'm also thinking a 6.5, maybe a 7.0 only because the ink is on the back cover. The book presents really nice despite having the ink on the back!
  7. I agree to you both as well, I don't think it will really help me in the long run.
  8. @Galen130 here’s a better picture of the top staple. It doesn’t look like there’s any oxidation on it, just poor lighting on my part.
  9. 7.5 for me as well, though I do think a pressing may help you get a higher grade, as their are a few bends along the spine that aren't color broken.
  10. That is not a stain on the bottom left, sometimes getting the best photo is hard haha! And thanks for your input too!
  11. Last post for the night. This is another book I am considering sending to CGC for my personal collection. I bought this off eBay for $20 back in college in 2015 and had it pressed within the past couple years. This was one of the first books that got me into collecting Silver Age comics in my collection. The comics looks really good, despite having some spine ticks and chipping near the bottom right corner. What would you grade this comic? Thank you in advance!
  12. Was going through my collection and I kinda forgot I had this in my collection. I also am getting some books ready for shipping to CGC, and am debating getting this graded. My only big concern (and this may sound dumb of me lol) is whether the lower staple is considered popped, even though it’s still through the entire book. I think it was bent from manufacturing the comic. How would you grade this comic? Thank you very much in advance!
  13. Back again, and hope you all are doing well! I bought a beat up copy of X-Men #12 at my LCS, and am thinking about getting it graded, mainly for my personal collection. The comic is clearly lower grade, though the cover is still attached at both staples, and the comic is complete. There are 2 pages that have tears on the right side. I don't believe a pressing will help this comic much, or at all. How would you grade this comic? Thank you in advance!
