I believed they were all 9.4 candidates and the x-men I thought had a chance at 9.6. (shrug)  I guess I'm the guy you want to be going against in the upcoming grading contest.

Thats about what i do... my one vengeance of bane that i thought was 9.6/9.8 came back 9.2...

And the vengeance of bane I thought was 8.0/8.5 came back 9.0...

Win some lose some :foryou:

Personally I see books in store that look nice for the price and that's what I buy and send to CGC raw..... if I buy online I only usually buy slabbed...

My point is, I don't mind the grades I get most of the time because of the price I paid ;)

Nice couch.

Its in NM condition and for sale. PM for details.

 

I was anticipating putting up the books when I got them. When I saw the deflated grades I only felt it right to post them anyways. Post the good and the bad. That's the way it works.

No pressing. All were basic Ebay purchases.

At least all labels are Blue. I know one day I'll get my 1st  PLOD. Only a matter of time.

What did you learn?  What do you think you will do differently?

How can you tell? You can't even see the back covers.

Look for small folds which seems to be the common flaw amongst all the books. Also check for fingerprints which I'm sure killed the x-men grade as its noted in 2 areas.

Probably come back NG cuz it's not complete with some of the stuffing missing.

So if you saw the folds before buying would you have still bought them and pressed them rolling the dice?  Or would you have passed?

As far as fingerprints are concerned I got one of those books too.  But it has a black cover, Star Wars 1.  The thing is I can't see them at all!  I don't know what the heck they are talking about. Hence my infamous INVISIBLE FINGERPRINTS thread lol...
