Its more likely that the specialized labels only come in blue.  If the resto were on the notes but not on the label then I would be concerned.  I actually like the look a lot and bet more people who have restored books will do the same.  Great looking copy!

I feel like this is pretty irresponsible on CGC's part. If they don't have the special labels in purple they should use the standard restored label and cancel the fee for the special label. Just listing the restoration notes on a blue label is going to lead to someone eventually getting scammed.

Gorgeous books everyone and continuing to enjoy this thread!  Had the nice fortune to pick up a Spidey #23 that just arrived.  I've always loved this Goblin cover and feel it's right up there with Ditko's best work!  Also trying to add some more symmetry to the Spidey collection:

They could just change the top stripe to purple and the text from "Universal" to "Restored"  But I agree, they did not think it through.

That's what they do for the signature series. Seems like a no brainer to do it for these as well.

Thanks! :bigsmile: Sweet Lou saved me from my ignorance there, but I swear I spent 5 minutes souring that cover. Stupidity is stubborn!

you are not stupid!   [just a little slow].

Good job! These are all some amazing books and I too value the consistency. I do however give me the space of one whole grade range for my graded silver age Spidey run (7.5 - 8.5).

Issue 24 is one of my favourite SA issues. Both the cover but mostly the story - its cool, entertaining and a tad psychedelic. I still haven't got around to add a nice copy to my run though!

Thank you!  I'm with you on that, giving yourself a whole grade range adds flexibility and more options with the books! And it's still a fun challenge (thumbsu

I’m thinking of down grading my ASM 5 9.2 to a 9.0 in a cash and trade and am having trouble finding recent sales in 9.0 to help guide my sales thread. Last 2 sales I found were both in 2018 - one for $4100.00 on GPA and another (which was my book) sold for $4950.00 on CL.

If anyone has any data I would appreciate it and apologies if this isn’t the right thread for this type of thing. 

A 9.2 goes for big money and 8 want to be fair with value for a 9.0

Hey Jeff, I just texted you a couple prices not in GPA (both of which I just realized were on your post).  On december 18th 2018 a 9.0 sold for $8500.  That seems like a ton for a 9.0 compared to neighboring grade sales but would think somewhere in between those extremes is the sweet spot.

Looks like the $8500 sale is invalid.  eBay has no record of it and neither does GPA.

3 more of the big order at cgc missed the 9.0 threshold.   grabbed one of 'em today.   will get the slabbed uc on the market when it comes in.

#66 has the nicest Mysterio cover of the run in my opinion. I love it and actually have my copy often displayed. 

Which issues didn't reach the 9.0 threshold? Sounds like they would be perfect for someone who collects 7.5 - 8.5s  :foryou:
