Corner chip

I have a almost flawless copy of solar man of atom 10, only problem is this tiny corner tear that I seem to see quite often on this book.

Curious how this will effect grade.

This is considered a production defect so CGC doesn't grade too harshly on it. This one looks a bit bigger than usual, so my guess is this wouldn't grade out at 9.8. If there's no other defects, you could be looking at a 9.4 or 9.6 copy. Scratches on the back, minor scuff marks and even the slightest hint of a fingerprint can lower the grade on this. 

On a side note, I've bought many copies of this the last few years so I know what to look for on it. I still haven't gotten any of mine graded. Out of the 7 copies I have, one maybe 2 could potentially get a 9.8 in my opinion. Don't laugh, but one I got off ebay for $50. It's a PGX 9.8 slab! It looks damned nice so I'm thinking it could get at least a 9.6 from CGC. I'm torn on what to do with that one.
