Can you guys take a look at this one and tell me what you think. Obviously it has writing in the upper left corner. There is also a small bend in the upper right corner of the back cover. The miss wrapped spine has always bugged me. I don’t know how CGC figures that in. It is a bindery flaw but should it grade the same as a similar copy with nice alignment? I don’t think so. I know the sigs wern’t witnessed by CGC and don’t really care. Would I get a grade devaluation because of them? 

Thanks in advance for your help!

.... I'm not sure that I'm qualified to answer all your questions, but I want to give my guesses :) 

Great Book BTW!!

I'm at 8.5/or 9.0 with a press....

I don't think they'll count off for the sigs inside the book, as they're clean and not messy or really any bleed through with the "pen"

the upper left front looks like pencil, but not sure how to handle that, if it is pencil: less of a deduction that "ink" for writing on cover

Should at least get blue label, I couldn't give this an "8.0" it's too nice, but 8.5 is more likely, with a press, I'm not sure if it will "help" due to flaws that are present that the press won't take care of (writing etc) :foryou: 

I think it's an AWESOME BOOK! and my hat's off to you! :) @Robot Man

My guess is 8.0. CGC won't worry too much about the bad wrap and the writing on the cover and first page.

Thanks guys. I had it at 8.0 or maybe 8.5 with a press. I just hate pressing books. I appreciate your opinions!

hm So only qualified/green label if on the cover? (I have a nice ASM #122 with a Romita sig on the bottom of the first page)

 

Sweet copy @Robot Man

My first reaction was 8.0 to 8.5. I'm gravitating towards 8.5. Nice book. :headbang:

8.5 was my first blush grade before scrolling through responses but the back cover looks to have a spine ding.  Still. I had one with a similar pen arrival date that got an 8.5 years ago
