I would also like to make a suggestion...

If you are only looking to sell these books and want max value I would suggest you send them to CGC to have them graded.

Very slight edge wear, very slight corner rounding, cover is flat with minor discoloration, slight discoloration of the staples, the biggest flaw I see are the spine creases with color break.

Considering the overall shape of the book, IMO FN/VF 7.0, the stress line prevent this book from being a VF 8.0 , VF- 7.5???

7.0 FINE/VERY FINE (FN/VF):  Back to Top
An above-average copy that shows minor wear but is still relatively flat and clean with outstanding eye appeal. A small accumulation of minor bindery/printing defects is allowed. Minor cover wear beginning to show, possibly including minor creases. Corners may be blunted. Inks are generally bright with a moderate reduction in reflectivity. Stamped or inked arrival dates may be present. Minor foxing. The slightest spine roll may be present, as well as a possible moderate color break. Staples may show some discoloration. Slight staple tears and a small accumulation of light stress lines may be present. Slight rust migration. Paper is cream to tan. Centerfold is mostly secure. Minor interior tears at the margin may be present

Hi, 

The intent is to send it for grading but I just wanted to see what the grades would be for a few. There are over 200 comics to go through but it's hard to determine the value. I took it to one dealer in my area and they gave me a very low figure.

 

We're going to send the most valuable for grading but I'm not sure what we're going do with the rest. 

 

Any advice would be appreciated.

My guesstimate is 7.0 - 7.5.

There you go, Joe, +1  7.0, and pressing might visually aid that right edge attached-chip in massaging it up into the 7.5 to 8.0 range, but no more, due to flaked spine stresses and margin tone all the way around, a real 139 to be proud of owning.

Very nice!  6.5-7.0 but I agree a wonderful copy.  Sell all the books to boardies!:)
