White spine areas have traditionally benefitted in CGC grading by the way they make tiny defects so hard to see.

I bet your book looks great when looking at it as a whole.  Congrats on the addition to the collection.

It's understandable and fair that you'd ask questions at this grade and price level.  :smile:
