So the current Pedigree auction is featuring a high grade collection accumulated by Cole Schave out of Green Bay. A number of the books appear to have had their front covers pulled back in the slabbed version of plastic surgery. It may not be a practice restricted to a lone E-Bay seller out of Washington state.

 

It's readily apparent on a couple of comics I used to own. Here's one:

Any other explanations for why the pages now extend so far beyond the front cover?

Same bad press job. I thought CGC was gonna address this.

 

They did.

 

It's obvious they didn't address it very well.

Perhaps the Wilson won that book first..gave it the facelift and Cole bought it after...I am sure the board detectives will do a quick check on the cert number.

Looking closely at it, it does not appear to have the cover wrapped around.

Book was graded three days ago. Perhaps it's an isolated incident.

Are there spine ticks on the 9.2 that are now not visible (from the front) on the 9.6? Not clear from the scans because the spine hardly seems to have moved compared to other books that have had this type of work done. As it is, the 9.2 version looks better to me than the 9.6 because the latter has the interior pages fanned out. hm

I was wondering how recent a submission this was.

Check the ASMs, Avengers, JIMs, and TOS from this collection with the 119771... certification numbers. He would have to have purchased much of his collection from Wilson for this to be so.

Wow. You're correct. And it's not trimmed.

Maybe it's just squished so hard the pages are smashed out of the book.

I can't tell what supposedly has happened... if you're saying the spine was moved (like that famous Avengers 1 example) so front spine damage moves to the back, then why does the front cover not appear shifted in any way? The details along the left edge seems identical, unshifted. (shrug)

Maybe it was just squished as usual. That can highlight a bad wrap even more.

 

Which makes it mysterious that the grade jumped from 9.2 to 9.6.

By squished I mean pressed. So am not surprised by the grade bump.

I guess, but at least on the basis of those scans, I would prefer to own the 9.2 version of that book.

Agreed.
