  1. Has anyone tried with Shippsy, CrossBorder Pickups, etc?
  2. Just want to let you know that I never received a reply from my email. Even after one reminder.
  3. What gives this gray tone to the back cover? From my understanding, this is not foxing and not staining either. Could this be ink transfer? Any advice about the grade is also welcome. Thanks for your time
  4. What is the impact on the grade just for the missing piece on the lower left corner. Thanks for your time.
  5. Unfortunately, no I sent a reminder on September 21th. I received this reply the same day :
  6. Unfortunately, yes. I will send a reminder.
  7. Page 234 of the 2016 edition. They don't write this comment about minor amateur repair in the grades above 5.0. So I assumed that 4.5 is the maximum grade for a comic that shows this kind of default.
  8. According to the Overstreet Grading Guide, a comic with minor amateur repair is a 4.5 grade. I recently sent a nice copy of ASM #98 to CGC for grading. The grader notes specified the following : " Restoration includes: small amount of color touch on cover. " And I got a 4.5
  9. Well, I bought a MTU #19 that was graded by Metro as a 9.2, and as a 9.4 by CGC! Most of the other comics I bought were overgraded by Metro, though. I agree with many others that the most reliable grades are provided by MyComicShop.
