Everyone buys a book thinkin theyre gonna bump that grade but then they start to second guess it. How about a thread where you post a slab you think is undergraded. We say yay or nay.

I'd be willing to bet that there are some people out there who would be tempted to crack that to get a 10 sig series.

@ Pontoon

I have an X-Men #12 with similar ware that also got a 5.5, would be interesting if a press would help.

Is that top edge wear? top right front? that seem's pressable, the blunted corner's not so much :foryou: I have limited experience, willing to learn :)

yeah the top edge is wear looks like bending from being in a bag and board in a bin and people flipping through it and the top getting impacted.. the blunt corners I am hoping can still qualify for a 9.8 but not sure about the 9.6 - 9.8 still learning myself about the differences between the 9.8 to become more experienced with it.

Well of the books posted so far, I believe you have the best shot! I would've given that anywhere from an 8.5 to 9.2 but lol

If cgc gave it a 9.6, there must not be too much else wrong with it (thumbsu

Press wouldn't hurt, if not just to make it look nicer :)
