I'm not a presser but it doesn't look too bad. If there is no "crack" in the gold showing the card stock underneath I think you should be okay.

???? Looks pretty bad to me, goes through the whole book. I can't imagine an impact like this not leaving a crease(s).

That can be pressed flat, but you will see remnants of where the bends where. Foil covers are very problematic and should not be done by amateurs.

Don't those look worse in pics than real life? Remember the Batman 9.8 thread. I'll look for it later tonight.

I wasn't even aware that the foil covers can be pressed! I thought that heat sufficient enough to press out foil cover flaws would curl it right up or deform it! I can imagine a whole gamut of problems if not done correctly.

How do you correctly press a foil comic? I probably would not do it myself. Should I send to CGC to be pressed and graded? Thanks, Steve
