I appreciate that but will have to pass... I really need either a CGC 9.8 or a raw with that potential.  I appreciate your reply though!

this is hardly the place for me to explain this, but since you're admittedly not an expert and posted twice in this thread, here's some general information for you or anyone else who is genuinely looking to help.

A CGC 9.8 comic should be considered essentially flawless (though technically some very light/mild/small defects are allowed), but for anyone new to the process, just consider them flawless in every aspect.  No bends, tears, creases, markings, ticks, anywhere on the book, including the spine.  And generally that is notoriously tough on black books, because defects have no place to hide.  So if you have a raw book you hope to sell as a potential CGC 9.8, check it closely for any defects, and if you find NONE, then post pictures front and back with some closesups of the spines and corners.  The grade is independent of how long your comic has been in storage or in sleeve or how many times it has been read, although those items MAY impact the comic changing the condition, they are not actual considerations in the grade.

As a secondary but equally important issue.  A raw book that is already signed (especially on the cover) cannot attain a CGC 9.8 Universal (blue) label, nor would it qualify for a CGC SS (signature series) yellow label.  The signature unwitnessed by CGC Reps will be considered a defect by CGC if you want a blue label, or can be ignored if you want a green QUALIFIED slab. 

if you want more information about any of these topics, you should peruse other parts of the forums, the CGC website, or contact CGC directly. 

 

To the original poster, good luck.

I appreciate that!  This book should be relatively easy to find but just doesn't seem to want to pop up anywhere!  :pullhair:

I just acquired 1700 books all from that time frame. I have all those books....I'll send them to CGC. Ive sent 13 books in so far as a "test". 9 x9.8 ..3 x 9.6 ..and a sole 9.2 ASM 300. Nothing Pressed.

I probably have your books and others of that era if you're looking for others....

No, not yet. Another member is submitting one and I have dibs if it comes back 9.8 though. Do you have one?
