I drank a fifth of wild turkey Monday night and got one demerit.  Please discuss your failings.

If I drank a 5th of anything I would still be in bed in a fetal position groaning

Thank you for coming to the CGC confessional to confess your grave sin.  What shall the penance be to absolve this lost soul of his transgressions?

You are not alone.

When I was grading my books a couple of years back I did not think :makepoint:  and laid a Mylite on top of my DD 131. 

The Mylite had tape residue (tsk) and when I went to lift the Mylite off it stuck to the cover and...

A tear to the top left of the cover. doh! :facepalm:

What would have been a FN- 5.5 dropped to a GD/VG 3.0.

I'm unclear... does the Amazing Spider-Man 25 belong to you or were you "looking at" someone else's copy when the mistake occurred?

I met a guy from a craigslist deal for a raw ST110 a few years back.  I asked him if I could look at it out of the mylar, but I didn't realize he didn't know how to handle comics.  Same thing happened.... tape stuck on cover.... I asked him to slowly separate the tape or it would rip the color off... he didn't listen and yanked it.  The result is the white spot in the red under the word "Paste".

I got a heavy discount on the comic, which was nice, but I think it would have been a 6.5 -7.0 without the tape pull.

I thought CGC graded it super harshly.  I had it pegged as a 7.0 even with the tape pull.  It had 2 name stamps on the back so I think that helped to pull it down.

I can't really tell with the book in the slab and no BC scan/pic, but it sure looks nicer than 5.5.
