  1. There is a gray pencil-like mark on many Hulk 340s I've seen (above head). Also many don't have it. Is it considered a grade-hurting mark or an ignorable print defect?
  2. I meant to focus on the impact of the jagged corner, not the rest of the book. My understanding is that CGC will ignore minor manufacturing defects that affect the majority of the run. However, if the defect is worse than the norm for that run, it will impact the grade. In this case the missing corner is unfortunately nasty so think the grade might get dinged down a lot. I don't think it would be as bad if the chip was elsewhere on the edge. If the possible grade varies from 9.0 to 9.8, that graded price is $100 to $1400. If the book was bought dirt cheap it might still be wort
  3. Cool, thanks! Yeah, I feel it'd be a real crapshoot depending on how CGC decides to handle it. Anywhere from a 9.8 to 9.0 and that assumes the rest of the book is perfect.
  4. Got it, thanks! What if it's not considered a defect and the corner is taken into account when grading? Does it drop to a 9.2 or 9.0?
  5. It's common for this book. It's my belief that CGC gives it a pass but in the posted case I'm wondering if the corner is bad enough to cause a grade hit.
  6. Are you saying it'd receive a 9.8 as is? My concern is that the corner would cause a big grade hit.
  7. I didn't mean they are biased, just that there is a very high bar for a 9.9 or 10.
  8. I believe many Marvel Transformers 1 comics have a jagged back top cover edge. The comic in question has the cover and multiple pages chopped off. See pic. If CGC doesn't give a pass to this known manufacturing defect, what would the grade be based on the corner alone? Assume the rest of the book is 9.8. Do you think CGC would ignore the defect?
  9. Would you be able to add a feature so that when dealers submit comics on a customer's behalf, the customer can track their submission? Basically the dealer would give the CGC member number and the member would then see the submission through their own account.
  10. No not me, just saw someone posting about it on Facebook. Thanks!
  11. Is there a new issue with modern books having color lift when removed from slabs due to unstable ink elements?
