To answer your question, yes that is currently the only option for CGC grading of a book greater than $3K in value.

Welp. I guess it will stay raw until I decide to move it.

And as it goes up in value, so does the grading fee

It all makes sense now, Minh. I get it. And I agree

That crease on the back cover would press right out, as well as the top edge,  as far as the spine goes looks VF to me . I was really upset I was driving and got sniped on this one

There's a 2 inch color-breaking crease which runs through the "PL" in "people" that would keep this book at a 7.0.  I've seen a 7.5 once with a similar crease on a TTA 44 that was otherwise perfect.  You probably did buy the notes but my guess is thats the limiting defect on the book.  If its not in the notes (provided it wasn't graded in 2011) then its likely a scratch on the slab.

Never thought I would get a Signature Series book, but for some reason I had to have one.

Add me to the club of Stan Lee Signature Series AF15’s.

Currently, have (2) AF15 CGC blue 3.0 If I sell them both & add around 15k around what grade do you think I can pick up and is it a smart upgrade or move .........long term?

Ok, so I have a pretty nice raw AF15 in the bank. If I want to get the book graded my ONLY option is the "walkthrough" and pay .3 percent FMV?

Yep.  Max they'll charge you is 5K for a book.  

It's an AF15.  Send it in.

It will be easier to sell the 3.0's later down the road, lower graded copies are quickly becoming many collectors only chance at having one. Depending on the eye appeal I think you would get more out of them then the 5.0-5.5 that you could purchase with the flip and added cash now in my opinion.

You just have to laugh at human nature......................... I put this post up to just get an idea if it was a smart long term move on my part and at this point about 12hr later I got 2 legit responses and 5pms asking if I could send pics of both books and did I have a BIN price for either. Some cool some not " what's the best price for a fellow boardie?" People just never cease to amaze me.  To be clear I was asking for some input into the move not trying to make a sale.

I think you need to get into 6.0 territory for it to be a financial gain long term.  6.0 and up is really when the POP starts to notably drop and to the point where you can start seeing more significant price divergence across grades.  2.x/3.x/4 are the most common slabbed grades (in reality 1.x are probably most common but many remain unslabbed).  But there are only so many people who can own the 9, 8, 7s etc and others will have to settle on 6.

I think you'd need a little more juice to get into 6.0 range unless your 3.0s are both very high end/ exceptional examples. Agree with others on 3.0 being much more liquid if that's of any concern to you.

And if a boardie offered you 30K each? :)  In all seriousness I would hold onto both copies if they do not have any chipping. Makes me wonder how many inquiries are made on these threads though for those posting their latest acquisitions.
