5.0 looks like a stain on BC too no? Tear top right corner. 

My stab at it any way. 

Probably more in line with many of my 6.0s, just being harsh since she ain't mine (shrug)

Sure, 5.0 seems about right. The back cover edges look a bit wavy, especially along the left edge--anything to worry about there?

I'll jump on the bandwagon with a 5.0 Rick. Waviness on back cover and light staining, possibly foxing at top?

Honestly, and I always hate to say it, it looks like a decent chance of trimming on one or more edges. Hoping it's just the scans.

@Ricksneatstuff, what say you?

Well, folks, here is the result. I was 5.0 for sure. So much for the CGC loose period. This book is a very nice 4.5 in hand then.

Graders Notes:

light staining to cover
light tears to cover
moderate creasing to cover
moderate spine stress lines to cover

 Yeah it’s not a book I plan on selling. I like it 

I don't blame you. They were tough on it. I thought a solid 5.0.

The characters named Archie, Jughead, Betty, and Veronica didn't give it away? :baiting:

I would say, if anything, that top left spine, basically the blue part of the spine, is what holds it back. Not that I haven't seen 5s like that before though (shrug)

Yeah that's what gave it away... But about four episodes in! I never read Archie or known anything much about him so I ordered a book from eBay today for a look... This nice #78 from 1962 :)
