  1. 2.5-3.0 And I have a bunch of questions I’d ask before I laid anywhere close to market value for it.
  2. I love comics so for me, investing in them is hard. Why? Well if I were to splurge on a book likely to go up, I would have a hard time selling it because I would think it’s so cool to have it in the first place. I don’t treat the hobby that way so it’s hard for me, even though there are plenty of books that I could buy that I wouldn’t care much about (ex. Many older DC keys) But I also don’t like gambling like that. It’s likely I’d be fine, knowing what I know, but the sheer fact that I would be buying comics as investment takes me to an area of the hobby I don’t want to worry about. I’m
  3. Other have left in depth comments that are spot on. I am also in 7.5 range
  4. True, 20 year old slabs seem to hold up fine. Which bodes well for them 40 or 60 or 100 years from now. Although whose to say at year 65, a secret Banksy-esque hidden device in all slabs slices the book in half!!!! MUAHAHAAH
  5. I have seen books graded by CGC and then regraded by CBCS and they came in lower I have seen books graded by CGC and then graded by CBCS and they came in higher I have seen books graded by CBCS and then graded by CGC and they came in lower I have seen books graded by CBCS and then graded by CGC and they came in higher I have seen books graded by CGC and then graded by CBCS and they graded the same I have seen books graded by CBCS and then graded by CGC and they graded the same I have seen books graded by CGC and then graded by CBCS and page quality was vastly diff
  6. 2.0-2.5 from me also. It looks better than my 1.5-1.8 FF #6 so I think she falls firmly in the Good range.
  7. You can leave your slabbed comic in the sunlight for a couple years and the quality of the book inside will change but the outside grade will not. So in 40-50 years, we could have slabs where the books inside are definitely not true 80's. These cases, especially the older ones, are not air tight. Granted they provide a lot of protection, and who knows, maybe a comic will really stand the test of time inside a slab. Truth is, we won't know until that day comes. And neither will CGC.
  8. I haven't! Give me Bernie in the Shining! Give me Bernie as the Stormtrooper who whacks his head! More I say!
  9. I love finding notations on old books like this. I recently got a couple older western books that just had the original owners name neatly written in them and on some of them, she had stamped an image of a girl with a dog. It was clear it was her way to notate her books when she was young. Also, I want every book you just shared
  10. 6.0 from me. Sucks about the spine split and tear cuz without those, it could be a full 2 grades higher
  11. 7.5-8.0 from me. That small crease at bottom of FC keeps from higher, as does what appears to be the slightest sun shadow on the back cover (unless its the lighting. From experience, CGC tends to hammer that.
  12. Yes def have that spot looked at...even if its amateur colour removal or touch or whatever, that could be the different between a blue and a purple
  13. So I have grades ranging from 1.0 to 2.5 here...quite the range but I expected as much with a book in this territory and it is hard to pinpoint. It is definitely be added to the pile of "to grade" books, as part of my first CGC submission which will hopefully happen this calendar year.
