I just got this as a gift from a friend.  Sharp copy,  the main issue is on the back cover,  there is a tape pull underneath "it's a jungle out there". Is there anything I can do about it?

Isn’t the presence of tape an automatic VG range?

I thought if it would drop it to VG if it was significant tape pull...

It's the presence of tape.

That said, others may have more relevant info about CGC specifically.

First off, excellent comic! Def one I am still hunting for (love me some Stevens art)

Second, the fact that tape touched it does not make it a VG. The slight tape pull I have seen before. Hurts it a bit. I am at 9.0 with the pull but would not be surprised with even a 9.2. No way they ding it hard enough to hit a Fine (I have seen silver and bronze books with larger front cover pulls grade out at 6.5). 

Finally, is there anything that can be done? Nope. Enjoy the book. Unless you are really bothered by it then sell it and find another I guess but personally, that would bother me not at all and I would enjoy that sucker!

Thank you , comicginger1789.   Great advice! Funny how life works, I gifted a lot of my collection away including my most of my dave stevens and adam hughes covers recently.  Funny my friend decided to send me this.

I honestly can't see enough detail to make a guess...

I'll scan it, my friend

I also had an otherwise perfect Infinity Gauntlet Perez #1 with a tape pull, it got 9.0 as well :foryou:

I don't know if the pics will do it justice... to compare books and tape pulls, with this black cover and all, I'll try to put it in spoilers to not confuse...

I'm going to say somewhere between 8.0 and 9.0 depending upon how the book would grade without that minor tape pull.

9.0 - 9.2 it's hard without the book in hand, but just looking at the pics that's what I'm going with
