Hi everyone,

What are your opinions on the grade of this comic based on its front cover?  For background, the comic lost pieces of the spine on the top left corner.  The comic also does not lay flat, and has a wave-like appearance.  There are also creases on the bottom left corner.  Additionally, it has a red stain on the center-left at the top. 

Unfortunately, I have only a front photo of this comic.  I already sent this issue, along with two other comics, for grading and pressing.  However, I do not recall anything significant on the back.  My two upcoming posts have only the front photos as well.  I also added a photo of my three comics together.

Thanks!

I can see a 5.0 with a press. Great book!

Is it wavy because its just wavy or because it was in a tight bag/board? I agree with Wipple, 5.0ish with a press.

Get it out of the bag ASAP. The bag is far too small. Looks like you're trying to fit a Silver Age comic into a current bag. Don't leave it in that bag. Unless you want to press the ripples out later.

Yes, you are all right. The bags were a tad small, but this comic continues to have a wave-like appearance out of the bag.  The bag accentuates the wave-like appearance.   My Amazing Spiderman # 4 laid flat when out of the bag.  All three of the comics were in their bags for little over 2 hours.  They were taken out when dropped off at CGC. 

Thank you all for the advice!

Hopefully you got CGC to press it, that will come out with a press if it was just in the bag like that too long.

Yes, I requested for my comics to be pressed.  I am glad I did not mail the comics to CGC.  I will not make this mistake again for my next batch of comics that need to be graded and pressed.

Nice! Is it just the picture, or is that slab actually covered in newton rings like it appears?
