  1. Obviously if you think it's worth it for a shot at a 9.8, and, if so, do they charge you to grade it? (re-grade it if it moved to the 9.8 after the press) Thank you!
  2. I’ve never submitted comics through the online service here and sort of need some guidance with the process. I actually have a few questions also if anyone is able to help. First off I only have 6 books I’m sending in and want 1 signed by Donny cates and stegman. 2 of the 5 other books I want pressed but when I go to add it to my order it says I need a minimum of 15 books but I don’t have 15 books to send in. Can I still get my books pressed if I choose that as an option? I added the 5 books to my cart including the ones I want pressed but when I went to select the option to get a signature it wouldn’t let me choose it. Idk if I’m answering my own question here but do I need to check out my current order of the 5 previous books first and then purchase the signature as a separate order or something? Like I said I’ve gotten comics graded I just have never submitted anything online before.
  3. Hey All, I recently picked up a copy of ASM 238. The book is already graded at a 5.5. The only real flaw with the book is a large subscription crease running down the middle. Grader notes say : Crease full center of front cover- breaks color, crease left top of back cover, spine stress lines. I am wondering if the book should be pressed and re-graded, to try and get the crease out. Does anyone have any insight into this? Any idea if the crease would come out with pressing, or is it something that cant be fixed? Thanks in advance!
  4. I had my first experience with pressing and I was hoping the group could give me an opinion about this pressing. Here's a picture of the Uncanny X-Men 266 I received in my family's small mailbox in 1990. The book had some obvious bends. Here are what those bends look like now after pressing and grading. They are obviously better than before but still noticeably present. I know pressing can't fix color breaks, but I thought they would be able to get rid of the bends on a modern cover. Should I be satisfied with this?
  5. I'm sure most collectors are familiar with the non-color breaking crease that runs vertically on the front cover next to the spine on thick, cardstock covers like the one on the Killing Joke and Dark Knight Returns. Can those kinds of covers be pressed? Does the crease affect the grade or was that an effect of the production process. Can embossed covers be pressed? Thanks in advance for any help.
  6. Hey guys, so I had a question about whether or not I should have a book that’s already been graded pressed and sent back for potentially a higher grade. It’s an Uncanny X-Men #94 at an 8.0. In the grader notes all they pointed out were some creases on the front and back cover. One crease breaks color though so I know there’s nothing a press can do about that, but what about the others? Do you guys think it’d be worth it? I plan on keeping this issue a long time and want it in the highest grade possible. I’ve attached a picture of the grader notes as well.
  7. Hi, I recently got my X-Men 101 pressed and graded by CCS/CGC. Unfortunately, the Grader Notes indicated: "light crease left top of back cover" and "spine stress lines". However, when I looked closely at the back cover, I noticed a bunch of creases near the spine, which looks like a pressing error. Unfortunately, I didn't take a "before" picture of the back cover, just the front, but I don't remember seeing these creases. Even if they were there before, shouldn't pressing have eliminated them? Should I ask CCS to re-press this book to address this problem? Also, I could not see the "light crease" on the left top back cover, can anyone else see it?
  8. I have A signature series white widow #1 swimsuit edition that came back at a 9.0 the graders notes listed issues that can easily be corrected if I had it pressed, but I’ve received mixed intel on if it can be pressed or not. Some say that it would be rejected and sent back. Any ideas?
  9. Hi everyone. I recently submitted this issue of X-Men #130 for pressing, grading and signature verification to CBCS, and got it back verified (John Byrne signed it on the first page in ink) and graded 9.6. I was hoping for a 9.8 after pressing, but it received the following grading notes: "signature(s) verified by BAS" "tiny spine stress front & back cover does not break color" "few light bends to cover" I am thinking of taking the book to a comic con to have it signed by Chris Claremont and witnessed by CGC (which I believe would get a qualified signature series yellow/green label) and then have it repressed and regraded by CCS/CGC. I am hoping that getting a CGC Qualified Signature Series label (Claremont seems to be popular these days) along with a possible grade increase after a CCS pressing (since there are no color breaks and only a few light bends and tiny spine stress) will be worth my trouble. Any thoughts or opinions on the possible wisdom or lunacy of this plan?
  10. Just picked up this nice raw copy of ASM 72. The seller claimed in the description that the centerfold was hanging on without a picture of any of the interior. Got the book a few days ago and inspected it page by page and then found four full pages detached from the bottom staple. From the fourth image you can see the lower staple end seems to be clipped. Could this be a defect? I've caught two books from 1968/1969 in the last few months with a lot of staple issues. Anyone have any insight? Thanks
  11. Change to CCS Screening Service Emails We're making a change to the CCS screening service emails. Prior to today, we have sent customers an email indicating which books were approved for pressing and which books weren't. This would typically include a fee breakdown for CCS. Moving forward, if books are submitted to CCS for press screening, customers will only receive an email when books are rejected for pressing. For example, if 25 books are submitted for press screening and five are rejected, an email will be sent to indicate which five books are rejected. All other books would proceed to be pressed at the rates indicated by the customer on CGC’s order form. This new change also applies to screening for restoration removal.
  12. Hey, I found a very interesting item on eBay - Silver Surfer Vol. 2 #50 with error foil cover. Can I send it for cleaning and pressing? Will it hurt the comic?
  13. Would it be A good Idea to Press A Foil Cover? Or A cover with Abit of Foil? Such as Carnage Mind Bomb. Is not fully Foil but has some parts with abit of Foil.
  14. Hey buddy, can you spare a grade? If I was to get this graded, should I have it pressed? Sorry for the low-quality photos it's the best I can do.
  15. I'm trying to figure out if my book has any potential for a 9.8 with a press. The only grader notes are "very light spine stress lines break color." The book was graded in June 2018. I see from the CGC scale a 9.6 has "several minor...handling defects" and a 9.8 has "negligible handling defects." I know a press won't help with stress lines that break color, but I'm wondering if the fact that they are very light (I can't even see them at all when looking at the book) means I could possibly improve the book slightly with a press and then get lucky with another grader to get a 9.8. Also, as shown in the cover picture, there does appear to be a 1mm length tear on the top left corner spine. I'm also considering having it signed by McFarlane and Michelinie and then pressed. Unfortunately my scanner added a bunch of dust artifacts or something, which makes it look like the book is covered in scratches, but the pictures should at least give a good view of the spine. Thanks for any help!
  16. It’s basically the only flaw the book has. There is no cracking of the spine, or any real boxing on the corners. No stains but The pages would probably be off-white. Does anyone know if a pressing would fix that crease? If not would anyone give me a round about guess of what kind of grade I might expect assuming the only flaws were the one cover crease and off white pages (there are no visible finger prints but I haven’t taken a black light to it, nor do I own one)
  17. Are graphic novels for example Watchmen, Killing Joke, Akira, Killing Joke etc possible to be pressed and cleaned? Has anyone submitted some for these services and seen improvements?
  18. Is it common to resubmit graded CGC books but this time for pressing services to improve a grade or two and hopefully "fix" any notes received? If so can you resubmit a graded book via drop off at a con?
  19. I have an Amazing Fantasy 15 which I would guess would grade around 1.5 to 2.0 cgc. However at the top right corner about half of the cca (comic code authority) is barely hanging on. I want to get it pressed and graded but worried it will come off. Any advice?
  20. I have a 181 which is affected by two non-color breaking creases at the top left/middle of the cover (pics 1 and 2). I've spent some time educating myself re grading, but I'm not very experienced, so I can't say how much these defects drag it down. It's sitting at a 6.5 and presents very well, but I'm wondering if a press and re-slab would be worth it. I'd consider a full point increase "worth it". Pics are below. I did the best that I could with my cell phone and crappy lighting. I do have the grader's notes, which are posted below as well. Thanks in advance.

  21. Happy Saturday my Friends The past few days I've been going through quite a few books with subscription creases and was hoping to gather your thoughts on them and how they affect the grade of a book. My grading skills are a tad rusty after taking some time off so I thought this week I'd tackle some SA's in various states of disarray to work myself back into mid-season form. Does anyone have a "minimum/maximum grade" that they will assign a book with a subscription crease? Subscription creases will of course differ in their severity and amount of color breaking but I figured that folks out there might have a maximum grade that they will give a book with a sub crease. Or when grading a book with a sub-c they will begin by immediately assigning perhaps a VG 4.0 and then "work their way down" from there and subtract for the other defects present. I wasn't able to find any examples of how CGC addresses these in the past so if you have a slab with a sub crease what has been your experience? Also, many subscription creases won't break color and I'm curious to know if anyone has had experience completely pressing out a subscription crease? Since the crease extends throughout the book I wonder if they've had success with just the covers pressing out and the insides retaining their bend. And in the rare instance that you had a book that was flawless except for the subscription crease what would you grade it at? Do you think that CGC would (or has in the past) assigned a Qualified grade to it? I've included pics below of a few books that can be used for reference in the discussion. With the JIM #115 & 116, both books are perhaps a 7.5 without the crease. The Green Lantern is a bit nicer - maybe an 8.0 to 8.5 w/out the crease. The Atom #14 is a bit better than that - perhaps 8.5/9.0 without the crease. I think I'll post these in the PGM Forum as well as a lot of folks might not visit this sub-forum. Thanks in advance
  22. This is slightly over a quarter inch in length on top edge. I'm not sure what to call it but It looks like a slight bend. I've included the pictures from top, bottom, side & direct angles.The bottom angle looks like it has a small tear but it's so small I can't be sure that it is even with a magnifying glass. The book is a 9.6. The rest of it looks fine other than what I'm pointing out. Wondering if this is what's keeping it from a 9.8? Unfortunately there are no grader's notes I included a wider image as the last one to show how small the defect is.
  23. Hey all this seems like a hot debate and it always get side tracked. I am very new to collecting comics. For the most part I have just been collecting random side characters because it was fun. Randomly felt the need to buy my most desired comic with the Hulk 181 (yipeeeee). However, I need to get it graded. It seems to be a beautiful comic with the exception of the spine curling a little. From what I understand this should definitely be pressed. I do not mind throwing in the extra money if it can help but I literally have no idea how to determine what is the correct thing to do. Trolls appreciated and useful information as well. Thanks!
  24. I wonder if someone can help me answer this question: I sent in an Amazing Spiderman #18 for grading and received a 7.5 grade. The notes said: light, multiple bend back coversmall, multiple indent full left of front coververy small tear with crease left center of back cover Would pressing help me receive a higher grade? How could I find this out? Thanks for anyone who can assist. David
  25. I feel like these are improper modifications for a book from an original collection. I feel like it's important to maintain the integrity of the book as it came from the pedigree collection. I feel the same way about provenance books. I'm not saying my feelings are superior, I'm just throwing them out there. I'm asking for your response and reasoning. What are your thoughts on the matter?
