I assumed everything in a slab is pressed. :blush:

Haha I get it, there is only one pressed book in my collection, a IH 181 that went from 2.5 to 3.0, but it originally had crayon on the cover and wasn't aesthetically pleasing lol

@MGsimba77 I'm surprised this got so low a grade, probably could have used a press...

Sorry about that man :( it seems harsh from what I can discern. looks like some possible bending along the lower rear spine and some dirt marks/stains on the bottom back edge right corner. Some minor edge wear top back edge. Grader notes?

light spine stress lines to cover
light staining to cover
light wear all corners of cover
moderate bends to cover

ya a press would have helped a bit! lol No Worries (thumbsu

Everything else being light I suspect the bends got hammered. I don't know if Howard the Duck is worth a pressing/regrade  lol

It used to be worth it lol for a minute of hype that drove copies like mine out and selling for $100 + but alas that avengers end game hype has passed, I got mine raw for $60, when it's a $30 book ha.

But no it was a 1 and done, I just wanted a copy, I'm happy; even though, this is probably the one of the 3 slabs back that I wouldn't make my money back on. All Good though, presents nice :)

Picked up a nice original owner Bronze collection today from OfferUp. Battlestar 1-13, John Carter 1-25, Micronauts 1-15, Red Sonja 1-15, Human Fly 1-19, Ms Marvel 1-25, Peter Parker 1-37, Spider-Woman 1-25 and Spotlight 32. The only book he had posted was a Hulk 180 MJ variant, but he brought these along to see if he could sell them to me as well (I wasn't aware he had more).

IMO an underrated tough Cardy black cover with 2 top characters on it.

White pages and a ped (Mass) on this one...
