I guess the non-color braking creases might knock it down, but it has tons of appeal.

6.0 is little too harsh IMO.

Very true. The only main issue is the spine on the book. Hopefully it can get that 7.5

I think it will be much lower than 7.5 due to significant spine wear fraying and mini tears but it will present very nicely in a slab once pressed.   Those water spots and stains on the back will disappoint you on the final Cgc grade.   Good luck

I edited my post when I saw back.  Needs a clean and press and I think you’ll be lucky to get over a 5.0 but it will generally present much better.

hmm I've been looking at 5.0s graded and all of them appear to be in worse condition than mine is but I guess that is possible. Well so far we have between a 5-7.5 quite a difference haha

I would guess 4.5 to 5.0 because of the spine wear. Mine had wear like that and got a 4.5.

Yeah mine does look pretty similar to that. Have to agree with you on that one.

I’m 4-5

a press will make it more attractive, but probably not get you a lot of grade improvement ... the spine wear is the killer 

 

JMHO, I’m still working on my grading ...

great book, I’d love a copy this pretty!

The good news is the difference between 6.0 and 4.5 isn't that much on this book.

6.0's are getting $2500-ish, 4.5's are getting $2000-ish.

Exactly you will get your money based upon how it presents when in those mid range grades as people are looking for presentation and know they aren’t going got nose bleed grades.  It’s a great entry into that issue and one to be proud of.

This looks like a 5.0 with maybe a 5.5 if CGC is feeling generous.  But I have to admit that the Hulk 4.5 above looks very similar.  CGC was a little tough on that book in my humble opinion.

Not a chance, that spine is way too chewed up.

I'd bank on a 4.0 or 4.5, possibly a 5.0 if that back cover gets cleaned up and those non-color breaking dents and creases are pressed out.

I was at a 5.0 to a 5.5 before reading the other replies. Handsome book! The spine and back cover spotting hold it down. Nice book!

My first impression landed at a 5.5 .... Is book going to be graded by CGC? If so, looking forward to results. Great comic.
