  5. HULK #181 1st Wolverine 8.0, Green Label $1295 Today I'm listing one book. Payment by Paypal, U.S. MO or a check drawn on a US bank. Book will be shipped priority mail in the U.S, Express mail if out of the U.S. with tracking and signature required. I charge exact shipping wherever you are. I pay for private insurance, so it only has to be insured for $100. I pack very carefully, and have a smoke free home.

  6. The Best VueScan Scanner Settings I Could Find (HP 8300) Let me start off by saying I searched high and low for the simple solution of just copying someone's settings and couldn't find them for the life of me. So I decided I'm not all that slow and could probably figure it out on my own. After a couple hours playing with every single setting I could find, I settled on what I felt was the best representation of the slabs on hand. So hopefully a few of you can use this post to your time-saving advantage. I've been helped so much over the past couple years by your collective knowledge, I guess this is just my way of giving a little back. So first things first! SCANNER: HP Scanjet 8300 (white background) PLATFORM: Mac APPLICATION: VueScan (Version: 9881.17.206...just kidding, it updated 7 minutes ago and it should update again within the hour ) I'll drop some screenshots here of my settings for you "just give me the goods" type and for the engineers, surgeons, and over-organized collectors I'll post some context below. I'll also make sure I have a before and after shot of our brave test subject Nova #25 (props to Ron C. for the gem). After everything, I'll post a cornucopia of scans from different ages and colors. Every slab I post will be the new CGC case. The older ones can still use these settings, but the new case really shines without that infamous blue tint. Here we go... Make sure that in VueScan you set the Options to Professional (or click the Options+ button at the bottom) That's the short of it. Now for the expanded edition... Like I said earlier, I spent a couple hours really fine tuning this as best I could. Getting the blacks and whites right was by far the most difficult task. Sadly the glare just wouldn't go away, but I didn't think it was awful. It seems to be worse on white comics. The darker covers tend to absorb the light a bit better. Be sure to clean your glass and slabs. I know that should be a no-brainer, but it's the little things that get overlooked easiest. Here I'll focus more on what I did do, rather than didn't. INPUT SETTINGS: The only real thing of note is probably the scan resolution. I only did 300 dpi for simplicity. You could do 100 or 72 and see very little degradation. I tried multiple passes and saw zero improvement even at 600% zoom. FILTER SETTINGS: Restore colors really seemed to get the ball rolling as far as the Red, Green, and Blues go. They "popped" like they should. Part of the reason I used Nova #25 was because of the great inking by Klaus Janson. There are so many deep colors mixed with blacks and whites on that classic cover. Pulling those out of a Bronze Age book accurately was my primary focus. Grain reduction was a surprising touch. Sometimes these high-res scans really pick up every fiber in the paper and it can get a little noisy. The grain reduction set to light made the book still have that textured look, but smoothed it out enough to mimic more of what you'd see with the naked eye. Sharpen was a must. With the deeper wells in these new cases, the scanner actually focuses on the rib/edge of the case. This means that the comic is slightly out of focus. Sharpen corrected that drastically. COLOR SETTINGS: This is where I spent most my time, however, it made the BIGGEST difference. I went from "hey, not too shabby" to "holy cow (insert best Harry Caray impression here)" getting these settings right. Neutral color balance was the best option. It really leveled everything out so I had good control over the final scan. The black point I cranked all the way up to pull those dark blacks as best I could. It was tough on some of my Silver Age and Bronze Age because those blacks look dark gray. I don't know if that's due to ink or age. I set the white point right on the edge. Much higher and it starts to look like a blown out photo. I also wanted to match the white on the books. Moderns are super bright, whereas some of the older comics have an off-white look to them. The curves are where the fine tuning came in. Curve low is a setting that darkens the blacks. Curve high obviously does the opposite and brightens the whites. The detail really concerned me and getting these two settings right seemed to make sure the darkest and brightest colors weren't washed or flattened. OUTPUT SETTINGS: Just the JPEG quality here. I played with several, and honestly, I think I was tripping myself out a bit. The file size reduction wasn't huge for 50 vs 90 so I opted for the higher setting. 50 would work fine if you're concerned with a few kilobytes. There's very, very little degradation in most scans. On a side note, 90 shines with a super busy cover. Explosions or webs, things like that. So how about the results?! Here's a stock setting scan of the Nova #25 vs the updated settings. I could walk you through every scan I did, but this post would be a mile long...wait, it already is. I'll spare you more mileage. Here's a super zoom comparison: Everything really came together after some pretty simple setting changes. None of these were edited in post. They're straight from the scanner to here. I just hate I didn't do this before I scanned like 200 slabs! I hope this helps some of you who've asked about correct settings in past discussions. I know we all like to show off our slabs with the best foot forward. I'd be interested to hear from some of you with different scanners. I know the HP 8300 is kind of the standard around here for slab scanning, but I know there are ton of others being used out there. VueScan really is an incredible tool! I can't speak highly enough of that software. Anyways, enough from me. Best of luck to everyone and happy slabbing! Here are a few more various scans for your viewing pleasure...

So for the rules: 1. No Probs or HOS 2. Paypal only 3. Shipping is included in the price for shipping to the US, please PM me for Canada. No other international shipping. 4. No returns. All the cases are in pristine condition and all of these were submitted to CGC myself. None were pressed. 5.First wins and trumps PMs based on timestamp.
  10. Hey everyone, So I'm new to this board and comics in general, so I may have dived into the deep end a little too quickly with my latest move here. This question sort of applies at a variety of topics, so I hope I'm not too out of place. The short version of this story is that I'm going to Megacon Orlando in May. Bought my ticket as soon as Stan Lee was on the bill. Knowing that he's about 94 I figured I'd get a once in a lifetime opportunity to get a comic signed, so I dished out a pretty penny on an Invincible Iron Man #1 comic, CGC 9.0 blue label (those last 15 characters or so I was completely oblivious to at the time of the purchase). So as an ignorant buyer I have no reason to be confident in the product other than it's appearance and my conversations with the previous owner, who seems nice, but what con artist doesn't. Anyway, my question boils down to this. Assuming the comic is legitimate, how should I remove it to get it signed? Will they do that for me at the convention if I ask? Is it even worth removing? And regardless of anything, is it worth getting it regraded for a 'superior' label? I know this is a lot to unpack so I highly appreciate any veterans who can give me some guidance here. I know I jumped the gun by a mile and should have done this kind of research first, but alas, I'm a insufficiently_thoughtful_person. Thanks.
