Just wondering...is it ok to post photos/scans of books that I am considering purchasing from a third party.

 

Sure.

Apologies to everybody on this post, in my ignorance I blindly went hell for leather and rapidly posted too many posts. I was in such a rush I failed to even read the guidance notes at the beginning of the thread.

Thank you to Bob for attempting to reign me in before I overdid it. 

Apologies once again for my poor etiquette.

Best regards

Rye

Hi, fairly new here. Wondering if it was worth posting close up photos of the corners of a slabbed book, or if it's too difficult to tell?  I know little about grading and was somewhat surprised by a grade I received -- I don't wish to contest it, I wish to understand what I missed. Thx

There's no harm in adding as many photos as you feel necessary. Did you receive graders notes?

No notes.  It was already getting spendy so I started cost-cutting, but if they're usually worth it I'll do in the future.

I believe notes are free with books you submit yourself. I'd have another look at your submission and see if the link is there maybe?

Thank you for your response. The only notes I saw were general. They gave the exact same notes for every comic submitted, and since the grades all varied the notes gave no insight/value. It did say I could pay for, what I imagine, are actual detailed notes... I posted the pics, but someone said on another thread not to post encapsulated books, so I understand if I don't get feedback. I don't want to open the case tho. If I sell it I hope whoever gets it ends up with a better grade if they do examine it closer :)

Please Grade My.... Showcase #6

Got in a hurry and did not notice shadow on cover pic.  Snapped one in the bag.  Small losses on few edges and corners.  Staples are clean.  Interior colors look nice.  Page color...? idk, cream or tan...?  Smells like a 60 year old book that spent little time in the basement.  Thank you.
