That presents nicely for a 4.5- Surprisingly, in fact. Is it the back cover?

These are the grader notes:

large stain full bottom of back cover
light crease center of front cover breaks color
light, multiple crease right bottom of front cover breaks color
medium crease left bottom of back cover
moderate spine stress lines breaks color
very light stain full bottom of front cover

I do see the staining on the back cover. Water? not sure. there are no ripples, though it could have been pressed. I see no evidence of staining on the front. The front look excellent!

This is one of those cases when I find the label hurts the eye appeal, and think it would look better between Mylar and a fullback. I'm not suggesting that- I have a hard time cracking keys, especially if I have reprints or undercopies.

I agree it would look better in some mylar. Problem is, if I ever decide to sell, I would get less than what a 4.5 is worth.

Maybe someone should make a wall-hangable slabbed frame with a super thick black border so you slide the case into it and it sits centered while covering up the actual grade :P

Cgc 8.0? That's a keeper. Cream to off white pages are ok but not great, but that doesn't affect the fact you have a great book easily worth more than you paid.

Ok . Thank you for the advice. Have this negative feeling as some mentioned they will rather have a lower grade of offwhite paper instead of high grade with cream to offwhite pages.
