I don't want to sound harsh but I think 7.5 is outta the question. Find me one 7.0-7.5 book with that amount of spine wear and I will happily admit defeat.

That top staple looks like it could pop. Multiple spine ticks and moderate damage to a section of the spine. Back cover displays a stain mark on spine near bottom staple, as well as stain marks near bottom, although faint. 

I am thinking 4.5-5.0. Still a great book with value worth slabbing

I mean, don't get me wrong, I wish you were my CGC grader :) I would walk out like a bandit on some stuff. Just do what I do when I lay en egg grading and blame it on the your phone. 

No word of a lie, I bought a book on ebay and only viewed the image on my phone. Looked to be VF. When I got home, I viewed my purchase on the computer and was like "uh oh, I overpaid on that...that is definitely a tape pull I did not notice...and a small stain...and spine ticks."

I usually only post in the PGM section when I'm here at work. Massive monitors that allow me to examine the comics very well (for doing so from images on the computer).

At home, I only have a 13" laptop, so I try to stay off these sub-forums there because I catch myself being unable to notice flaws when I look back at my posts...

Must've still be half-sleep when I "graded" this one yesterday...

4.0 - 4.5 mostly due to the staining.

5.5 or maybe a 3.0 with a bad press
