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.

 

It didn't. My copy was resubmitted by the buyer mbhighlander and became a 9.4. The 9.6 is a brand new grade.

 

Here's another of many examples with 119771... certification numbers:

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.

 

Ditto. Cheaper and looks better.

Is this the photo, or possibly on the case?

 

It looks like one or two color flecks disappeared.

I haven't owned the book in 4 years, but I bet it was my filthy scanner. :blush:

And another. Without back cover scans, it's hard to know for certain whether the cover has been rolled front-to-back a teensy bit or the pages squished out as a consequence of the way a pressing was done. Either way, it's a disappointing the ugly appearances didn't detract from the numerical grades.

They received higher grades, no? Sounds like a successful press. It's all about that number.

+1, come on all you pro-pressers, the number in the upper left hand corner is bigger, the book is in a blue label. If CGC can't detect the completely f'd up press job, it is all good right (shrug)

So eliminating a small ding or two -- or whatever it is the pressing did -- raises the grade even though the interior pages are pushed out beyond the cover? CGC really ought to rethink this ....

Fanned pages has been a defect since day one whether it was done by being in the middle of the legendary stack in the barn or by more, ahem, mechanical means.

How can this not be regarded as destruction to the book. So much for CGC

detecting and punishing for a bad press. Has anyone brought this to the attention of Paul Litch ?

Couldn't it simply be the cut on the book?

This IMSM was auctioned off by ComicLink. Belongs to the Brad Squared collection. Why go through all that trouble for a $300 book ? (shrug)

I find that extremely hard to believe. Besides, I don't see ComicLink involved in that kind of funny business...

So every book with the pages sticking out has been pressed?

There sure were a lot of books being pressed 30 years ago when I first payed attention to this defect.

They were pressed right in the factory too because all the books I bought off the newsstand were like this. :cry:

Exactly.

 

I mean for a book that could sell for 50k I would understand. But every book ? Even those that sell for $200 ? :screwy:
