+2 That's a great looking 6.0 . Congrats.

 

Thanks guys!

 

It was always a goal to get a 6.0 (or better) and I had to sacrifice a lot of other pretty books to get it but I'm glad I did.

Here is my addition to the club...

I will show the grade further down as I think this book is stunning and was under-graded.

A beauty and great book in my opinion.

This is my 4th copy, so technically I was in the club. I only have this copy and keep moving up. As a kid I bad a beater, then a 2.0, followed by 7.0 (restored) and now this unrestored copy. CAN YOU GUESS THE GRADE???

TRY TO GUESS THE GRADE...

 

Off-White to WHITE

ZERO MARVEL CHIPPING

Wicked Color and Gloss

Had a slight 1/4 tear at the lower staple

and stress at the top staple.

Overall I'm very happy with this one!

 

Got this from Ken at Cloud 9 Comics. He's in the overstreet guide and was really great to work with. Everbody at the show was great. I feel a bit bad...

Vince at Metropolis sent his 5.0 for me to purchase knowing I would buy it unless I found a better buy and I got this GEM for 3K less than the metro copy. I've bought from metropolis before though and will do so again. Vince is a great guy.

NO MARVEL CHIPPING

Off-White to White

Some of the best color and gloss I've ever seen on an Af15.

 

I think I got real lucky on this and...

 

 

I thought WOW looks 5.0-5.5. I showed it to Greg Reece and Mike Carbonaro

and covered the grade. Reece said it's a 5.5 and Carbo said 5.0...

One dealer thought it was a 6.0-7.0

It does have small tearing/stress at the staples. Solidly attached though!

 

 

 

Thanks again to everybody.

The show was freakin awesome!

There is some strong creasing on the Front cover and I see a water stain on the Back Cover. I agree, it looks great. Very fresh. From what I could tell I thought the pages may be White ! I would have guessed 5.0/5.5 also but obviously it is lower.

Probably 4.5 . Great book. COngrats.

Yeah,

I gave away too much info for a true grade contest.

I should have just posted up pics and let you guys guess, I think it would have got

5.0-6.0 from people...

But here is the reveal...

SICKLY UNDER-GRADED!

B E E A UTIFUL copy. :applause:

It goes to stand that not all 4.0's are created equal. I thought 4.5 to 5 at least. It's a beauty. Don't know if you'd take the chance, but maybe a good cand. for resubmit. I don't want to take the chance on mine. It's sitting pretty as is, 1.8 in all it's goodness.

Yeah I didn't check the grading notes...probably would do that though before sending it off for re-submission. The tearing although small at the staples and lower bottom staple and the back are likely the reason for it being a 4.0.

Still no dealers at the show guessed 4.0

 

I think I did really well and I will recommend Cloud 9 comics (where I got this) to everybody.

Ken is a great guy to work with.

 

I just found out that Harley Yee sold a GPA setter at London last weekend 4.0 @ 9000-

WOW, this book is getting crazy.

I may throw this book in with a bunch of my other keys to attempt to land a higher grade.

before the 6.0's get out of my reach!

 

ANY TAKERS ON THE BOARDS FOR A POSSIBLE TRADE??? Just asking...

This 4.0 +

Hulk #181 off-white to White

Spider-Man #129 9.2 WHITE +

Spider-Man #252 9.8 SS LEE

Avengers #4 6.5 Off-White to WHITE ++

Marvel Spotlight #5 9.2 Off-White to WHITE

Journey Into Mystery #89 7.0 off-white to WHITE

Spider-Man #100 9.0 WHITE

(ALL UNRESTORED CGC) + indicates it's premium for the grade

 

What might that get me???

Anybody have interest in this that's a WEST COAST board member???

 

Likely nobody will and I'm best to stay with this, but

it's just for curiosity sake.
