I can see when it would be confusing sometimes.  :eyeroll:

I think I know what happened. They got so confused that someone would send a Nightstalkers 10 for slabbing that they put it in upside down.

Ooooh, nice one!

He's lucky it wasn't an 8.9

Wouldn't that be 8.6?

Hey, this could be a news article headline. Florida Man encapsulates comic book upside down. 

But I have trouble picturing anyone who works for CGC looking like a wrung out crack whore

That's the worst case of shaken comic syndrome.

It is a GA UK book.  I sent two of the the title - one they got right, the other was backwards.  I am posting both so folks can see although I only scanned the front of the correct one.

Thanks for this. I never saw these books before, post them in this thread when you can if there are less than 10 on census: 

I will say though that I can understand how those specific comics ended up that way. the back and front both look like comic panels and I am assuming CGC doesn't get a lot of these in. Of course, the staples show the right orientation but I can see how someone could make a mistake in this specific scenario.

Also, damn, CGC really doesn't like stains.

Yeah, I Haven't post books in that thread but like to see what others post.  I collect a lot of eclectic titles so I have many would fit there.  Some of the books I am grading now, I picked up back in the 70s so kind of fun to see them again.  None of my GA non-US books were acquired that long ago.
