I don't see how the flaws that had this AF 15 as a 9.0 were improved to now give a 9.2 . I am sensing lately thatt CGC is starting a loose period.  

Actually, I mentioned 2 years ago when the book sold as a 9.0 that I had looked at buying it because it looked like it had a very strong shot at upgrading to 9.2.

Just ask Jaydogrules, because he didn't believe me back then. :wink:

I have to agree here - it presents better than the large majority of the 9.0's I hold in my collection.  At worst, it's a "high end 9.0" if there is a scale within the scale.

Was scrolling back through some past posts for research.  Did anyone else notice they misspelled "large" on the label?  Spellcheck is a beautiful thing :bigsmile:

Love the date stamp. Highly doubt the asking price will be met though.

The back has a name address stamp.

Pretty much any book Reece has expect huge prior grade bumps on. Buyer beware if you care about that kind of thing.

Why is that?  Do you think the grade bump is solely from cleaning and/or pressing?

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

As I previously stated its a VF, Makes me even crazier I missed it...But sound like regardless of what I bid I wouldn't have snagged it anyway.hmmmmm, not sure if that makes me feel better or not..:0

I knew this book would bump , it was a steal at this price as well.

this is not good for the hobby. one day its in a 7.0 holder the next in a 8.0 holder. wtf.  book wasnt graded properly the first time around and now 100k is hangin in the balance. this will not create any kind of trust in the hobby. if this continues its the wild west. just sayin ...

The submitter makes money, the presser makes money, the graders make money. Everyone's richer.. :flipbait:

He does accept offers too. Maybe offer price of what it sold for + pressing and CGC fees? :nyah:

I thank you for the response. This I did realize. What I was wishing was some pressing & regrading genius would know the specific (or close to specific) amount of $ this 7.0 to 8.0 process cost as I'm too lazy to do the research myself.

Lazy + Wanting Free Knowledge = Nada. Nothing. So, nothing I get. Wish I was more motivated. I could have more $ and that's what it's all about. 

I'm hungry.

It wasn't, in my opinion.  The pages stick out from the covers more than they did before, and the top cover edges have been flattened into the starched collar look, both of which are remnants of pressing.
