  1. I'm just happy, that I've got this issue #300 with an autograph of Stan Lee on it. Some people don't know how hard it is to collect comics in Germany. And we're just talking about collecting them, without getting them slabbed or even signed by a big player like Stan Lee. 2015/2016 was like the first ever Comic Con here, where a few writers, artists and some old TV celebrities showed up. And if there is something to witness, it's getting witnessed by EGS (European Grading Service) and not CGC or CBCS. I'd rather have my comic signed by some good artist, without getting it witnessed, than getting it witnessed and graded by EGS.
  2. I don't know, if it makes a difference, but I've got an update on the page color. The pages are white.
  3. Thank you for your honest opinion! That scratch is the only big thing bothering me. Thank you as well for your grade! Not if you pay an expert from another 3rd party grading service to find it out. It's not that cheap, but I'll do it - just to be sure. If it comes out that it's a fake, I'm getting my money back from the seller (or ebay), because of a fraud.
  4. Hey there, folks! I'm pretty new to all this grading stuff and would like to hear your opinion on my latest purchase (- just bought a few hours ago). Please tell me, what your grades would be and why you would grade it like that. I wanted to get this signature of Stan "The Man" Lee verified by CGC, but there doesn't seem to be an option to get it verified - without having it already verified at a Comic Con or something. Unfortunately, there was no CGC official standing right next to the deceased legend. The signature still looks valid in my opinion. If it's a fake, it's a pretty good one. I've also seen the scratch (~ about 1", if you ask me) on the fourth picture, which doesn't seem to affect the cover and the color doesn't seem to break. What do you guys think? Edit: color of the pages > white Thank you for your time and all the best from Germany, Dan P.S. I don't have any high hopes for this beauty. Just because of the scratch and the probably non-white pages. I'd probably grade it with a 7.0, even if it looks nice. But I don't know, if this would be realistic. Everything higher would be great!
  5. I'd say 9.4 - 9.6 as well. Nice looking issue At least from outside - don't know, if there are any tears, missing pages, etc.
