Love that Xmas month date stamp. You'll always know when it's your old book. Raw or slabbed

 

Exactly! I wouldn't be surprised if the book is in a new label now

I'm in!!!

 

Low grade, but presents REALLY nice, and fits nicely with my Daredevil 1, X-Men 1, and Avengers 1 CGC 1.8 SS. Now to get Stan to sign my ASM #1 1.8 and try to fill the books on the list.

 

By the way, if anyone has Hulk 1, AF 15, JiM 83 or TTA 27 in 1.8 SS, hit me up.

 

Cheers,

Cole

ah Porter, you were the one to buy the TOS39. You ever figure out why it's only a 1.8?

Nope, looks great in hand. Multiple minor flaws, but will probably be buying the graders notes on this one.

Seriously, a 1.8? Wow, can't for the life of me figure out why......"body fluid staining on pages 2-17?)

 

 

 

BEAUTIFUL COPY!! Ijust paid for a 4.5 that doesn't look as nice.

Great looking copy I would bet on a cover split that you can no longer see in the slab. I had a X men 1 that looked VG with a split to the top staple came back 1.8

+1

 

I have seen a number of knock-out 1.5-2.5 range key books that present very well but get killed in grade due to spine splits and detached covers.

 

Personally, to me if you are buying a slab, I would rather have a top-knotch cover that is detached or has a large split (NO TAPE) than one with missing pieces or significant staining.

 

IMO

"Look at the big brain on Brad!"

 

Nice call Greg, took a closer look yesterday, spine split nearly the entire length of the book.

I saw one on Heritage recently and thought it was a typo. Has there been a revision to the page quality list, or have I been ignorant to this level?

Was it the Cream pages that kept it from a 6.0? Front cover looks really nice.

This must be new...I haven't seen it before in all my submissions or any slabs I've looked at.

Is "Cream Pages" a description or a suggestion?

I put a bid in on this tonite but it's a pretty fugly looking 6.5... (shrug)

Not sure it looks/grades nicer than heymikesays' 5.5...

Nice 5.5 btw... :headbang:

 

thanks! I actually sent it a few days ago to get it pressed and resubbed. i'll probably get a 50/50 vote from people saying "wth" and "yea, go for it" but hey, like you said it presents really well and I'm willing to take a gamble on it getting a higher score once its done (thumbs u
