Why is Wolverine #35 so hard to find in CGC 9.8 condition....I noticed there aren't any 9.8's within the census...the highest is a 9.6... hm

i am guessing the cost of slabbing isn't worth it for most people more so than rarity. I bet if you post WTB raw 9.8, you might get a few offers.

Production defect. Ask anyone who collects Wolverine runs know how hard it is to find. I have been looking for years for a friend and cannot find a copy that comes close to 9.6, let alone 9.8.

Here is the best Wolverine set there is.

 

Every book is a 9.8 or higher. Except one sole 9.6. #35. And he's been looking for years.

 

 

there is a CGC 9.6 currently on ebay that I could nab but its like $300 which is too much in my opinion I probably be on the lookout and at cons snap up all the issues i can on ebay and so forth....I live in Chicago so I have a few shops here i can visit too

Is that the one that Worldsbestcomics is missing? If so, there have been a lot of people looking for one for a while! lol

Yes, there are two to three tears on the lower left hand corner along the spine. If someone can produce a 9.8 copy, it will go for hundreds if not more.

Not likely, they all break the color...they may flatten out, but will still be visible.. At least on my copies...

No, the paper is torn.

The entire print run was like this. It's also not the only book printed this way. There may be a small handful that don't have these tears, but it's not likely.

Yup, same here, and 30 mins ago I was just in that box pulling out 3 #1's and a #10 to submit for pre-screening. Since I forgot the Swamp Thing issues, I suppose I should go grab #35 and see what it looks like.

How does that even happen where the ENTIRE print run has that exact same defect of a few rips in the corner?

 

What was the print run for that book? I don't know a heck of a lot about printing but that just strikes me as a odd defect for the entire print run to have ???

There have been issues found without the printing defect, but their condition prevented 9.8 grading for other reasons.
