Hi, what grade might this be now? Would a pressing help?

Question, is the book mis-cut or is that just the angle of the picture messing with me? It's a beautiful copy. Clean & press would help most of the problems I can see. What's on the "L" in HULK?

It might be the angle. The smudge on the L seems to be Printing residue. I can take more pictures tomorrow and upload. :)

Here are a full picture of the backside and a closeup on the smudge on the front. And MVS is intact inside the book.

7.0 in its current condition.

Has the perfect pressing flaws and you would achieve a 9.0 and could even reach a 9.2

slight spine roll puts it at a 7.0 but with additional corner issues it's gonna fall even more...i very conservative on my grading i'm gonna say 6.0   I'm sure da others will say higher............

7.0/7.5 now, 9.0 after a really good pressing.

This is a nice copy and an excellent candidate for pressing. If you can eliminate the spine stress on the back cover and the slight warp to the book, you're looking at a substantial increase in value...

Man I initially thought a 9.0 but seen others in the 6.5 to 7.0 range thinking I was way off. That press did wonders and even made my guess of 9.0 wrong! Grats!!

Having looked at the pre-pressing scans not sure why so many of the guesses were that low. Very little breaks color on this book. It had all the right defects if you were looking for a book that could press way up.
