The grade is in! 9.0!

Picture to come.

 

My older brother is looking to get back into comics. He got out of comics in the early 90s like everyone else. After the recent Avengers movie he is jumping back in.

He has some pretty good books he is looking to get graded. He sent me a few picks of his Hulk 181, not the best pics, but perhaps a grade range could be determine. Looks like it needs a press based on what I see.

Stamp is intact.

Unless I missed something, maybe a 7.0 with a press.

I was thinking 8.0 to 8.5.

Back top cover looks like a manufacturing defect.

see a few spine issues.  Not sure what that is at top of back cover.  I'd also guess around 8.0-8.5 from what I can see and agree a press would help

7.5 with a press imo.

Wow, killer copy!

The photos are a bit small but I can't see anything to knock it out of VF range. I'd guess 8.5 even as is. I don't think a press would make a huge difference but it might squeak out a 9.0, who knows.

It looks like it would press into a higher grade.  I am guessing 8.0 as is.  At least an 8.5 with a press.

Looks 8.0 range, possibly 8.5. That ink overspray shouldnt hurt it grade wise too much. An accumulation of other minor edge and spine marks keeps it from a 9.0 or better for me.

I thought 7.5 maybe with a  press higher but probably land in 7.5

Looks like distributors ink, but from that pic can definitely say it could use a press too

Definitely needs a clean and press for a grade of 8.5 to 9.0. Does it still have the marvel value stamp?

Hard to tell but the corners look a little blunt, but otherwise a great solid copy. I would say 8.0.

I don't think it needs to be cleaned.
