Should I have this graded and if so should I see about having the tape removed from Hourmans left elbow.  If the tape cannot be removed without significant damage to the comic should I have it pressed with the tape?

Getting the book graded is strictly a personal decision and depends on what you plan on doing with the book.

If you plan on selling the book is it worth the expense over what it will sell for?

The only graded Showcase 55 that has sold on eBay recently was a FN+ 6.5 that sold for $132.00

If you are going to keep the book having it graded does not offer any more protection than a Mylite and Acid Free Board.

As the book sits right now with a piece of tape it is IMO a VG 4.0 which makes the value of this book $40 - $50.
