Hi Everyone,

Am I losing my mind or is the 9.8 below I am potentially looking to make an offer on faded? Upon closer inspecttion some 9.2 raw copies seem to be colorful and vibrant. Thank you so much for any feedback everyone I really appreciiate it.

It looks ridiculously blurry, but not faded.

It doesn't have the look that faded comics/magazines have. There can be color variations within a print run. Some copies look brighter and more colorful and some look less so. Maybe that's what we're looking at here. Kinda hard to tell with that crappy picture :makepoint:

It's still an LQ photo, and images of raw comics will always appear better than pictures of slabs.

Educated guess: Side-by-side, the raw and the encapsulated comics would look quite the same.

A high resolution photo would be large. That one is is thumbnail sized, about 500 x 700 pixels.

Crappy picture notwithstanding, it doesn’t look faded to me, and the variations from the 2 pictures are most likely because they were made on 2 different scanners with different settings to boot, and one was trying to capture the image though the slab. With different settings and adjustments, they might look like this:
