Restoration is only a bad thing if it's undisclosed.

I had the opportunity a few months back to finally get a Suspense 3 but it had amateur restoration. Quite poor on the back cover especially.  I have never had restoration work done and was looking into removal. Once I determined the removal would be too damaging the decision was made to have the work improved. Sanderson Studios (Kenny) did a very nice job and here are the before and after photos. 

For the longest time I never bought anything restored but now, having bought a handful and actually cracking a few out and holding them in my hand I don’t mind it anywhere as much as I thought I would.

Just picked this off ebay about two weeks ago. My first foray into "lower" graded GA books for me, but the higher-graded books were getting too damn expensive...

I just read this from page 1 of this thread (2003).  If the poster though higher graded GA books were getting expensive back in 2003, I would be curious what they thought of prices today.

For my first pickup of 2019 I simply couldn't be happier as I have been chasing this book for awhile now. Thanks so so much to @Ricksneatstuff for releasing this book back into the wild as I just missed it a couple times. Don't judge but you may see this book get posted a couple times haha!! A little group shot of some Patenaude goodness while I am at it :)
