If they detect it. From what I understand, an aqueous bath is easy to detect, while some chemical baths are a lot harder. 

What is a wash conserving?

There could be corrosive contaminants on the cover.  A wash, in some cases, can extend the paper's life.

I asked Dylan directly on IG if he disassembled those AF 15s.  He said he didn’t.  Can you wet wash a whole comic?:insane:

Yes, in fact there's a post on IG of someone doing it to a book with mold.

You can do a lot to a comic IF you don't plan on sending it in for grading. Lots of defects and stains can be removed to make the book look better, but the book obviously is now conserved or restored.

More importantly, can you wet wash someone's involvement in the hobby?  Just reading about these shenanigans makes one dirty and in need of restoration.

 

I can’t believe the amount of shenanigans going on when it comes to grade manipulation.  I thought I was fairly well informed, but now I’m starting to feel like a newb.:facepalm:

Never listened to his music, but I absolutely cannot stand that six nine guy.  However, he’s definitely seeming more and more appealing to hang out with rather than the destroyer.

Your head would spin if I shared what some of my ex customers asked me to do to certain books. When I refused they said they would find someone else to do it.

It used to be that we’d buy CGC books because we knew what we were getting.  
 

Now the slab is a way to hide shenanigans behind plastic.

 

Feel like CGC is jumping the shark.

I can’t wait until the 51st edition of Overstreet comes out to see if they’ve trimmed the advisor section by 1.

I wonder if Overstreet has been advised of this?  hm
