I'm a new collector and have the opportunity to buy an ASM 300. I'm not experienced in attributing a grade and would like to get your perspective on the condition of this copy to assess if the price makes sense. 

I would also like to get your input on what looks like "ink transfer" (what looks like some slight ink smudges for a lack of better words) on some of the interior pages.

Thank you for your help!

Th ink transfer you see on that book is very common. Common with a ton of late 80s books. Might affect the grade if you had a high grade copy (ie might distiguish between a 9.6 and 9.8) but here, it plays little to no roll.

I would say 6.5-7.0 for this copy. The spine ticks and back cover wear along with some smudge marks in the price box have me putting it in this range. A press and clean could likely make it a strong case to guarantee 7.0. I cannot see 7.5 or higher.
