Johnny Mu's is very obviously the more attractive 6.0, with far less defect, IMO:

Here's JohnnyMu's unenhanced image:

And here's the Berkbridge blue-tint enhanced image:

Let's see how they perform. Unenhanced image vs. the blue screen cinemax version

Surprised Berkbridge still has time to list since they were going to sue everyone for doubting the legitimacy of their “charity”.

And now someone is possibly questioning the blue-hued cinemax scans? :whatthe:   

Why, that's more than any seller should have to bear! :whistle: 

At any rate, The standard image 171 finished at $420, and the cinemax 171 at $480. Only 15% difference, I thought it would be more. Maybe the "it looks better than 6.0" (even though it doesn't) language could have been responsible? Hard to tell with only a 15% difference, but I thought the two would make a good comparison to see how the blue tint affects sales as the two books closed seconds apart.

The Berkbridge copy also had white pages, so that surely helped it earn a few extra dollars for the “single mothers”.

$271 vs. $153

Because, as I suspected, and as they did once with PGC Mint, blue scans matter.

The CGC 8.5 non-blue scans matter cinemax version of an 8.5 sold for $153

Berkbridge's CGC 8.0 blue scans matter cinemax version of an 8.0 sold for 80% more than the higher grade copy! First time for $297, second time for $271.

Blue scans matter.
