I would call that fraud as well. Looks nothing like the actual book.

It actually isn't the actual, same book -- is it?  The middle scan is a Planet with a different serial number and White pages, while the other two have Off-White pages. 

ETA: There's a slight difference between the top and bottom scans, but not nearly as dramatic as what the middle image presents.  I'm under the assumption that all three scans were all supposed to be of the same book.

That's a good pick up, Randall, I didn't notice that at all, I was busy trying to figure out how on earth they got those reds without messing up the CGC title?

Rick, maybe you mixed up the scans by accident? But I know what you meant. Sometimes I scan books to show the flaws, but I need to take a cell photo to show the real color and even then it depends on the light.

Adjusting settings to accurately represent the book in hand is a good thing. Manipulating settings to increase a book’s appeal is deceptive. When the whites wash out the surrounding area, it’s a clumsy use of settings to improve presentation.

I am with you, and probably wouldn’t be to happy if I paid a premium to get the book with bright reds to only receive it with browns.

A lot if not all sellers on here have a “no returns on CGC books “, so what would people say if they received a book that someone manipulated the colors in the scan?

I think if you got a manipulated book here and wanted to return it, the forum would back you up. 

Personally, unless you buy it in person,I never saw the reason for no returns of CGC books.

So, here is the listed auction scan and the final actual book. I had two Planet 17 5.0s so I got it all mixed up. Still, juiced a little bit but acceptable and very strong.

Yes. Those cover colors are very different. I would not be super happy about it.

I was thinking about listing 150 books, but I am going to wait until next month. A ton of nice stuff in the marketplace lately.
