  1. I would love to give you my opinion. However, I need some pics of the back cover. Got any?
  2. I'm needing some suggestions. Should I or should I not crack open a CBCS or PGX slab before sending the comic in for re-grading by CGC? Would love to hear your thoughts.

When people would bend down to ask me what I wanted to be when I grew up, I'd always say: "I want to be a comic book collector." In 2018, I sold my childhood collection of raw books, and decided to begin collecting CGC books. In the past two years, I've amassed a collection of about 200 graded comics. I love the hobby, but took it back up, in part, because I saw it as an
