Saddle River Comics - New eBay ID & Link drchaos Jump to first page38Jump to last page 1 daydrchaos (6844): Buyer failed to pay so this book has been relisted and can be all yours.
WTB - Uncanny X-Men #101 ThorneArt 5 2 daysThorneArt (310): Nothing like a restoration check, I just figured that it would be easier and more cost efficient to get a graded copy than it would be to get a raw copy and pay to get it graded myself. It is a grail for me this year. But thanks to a board member, that grail will be in my hands! Now onto a #95 or a #100 :)

When Will We See The New Mutants Trailer? JLS_Comics Jump to first page36Jump to last page 3 daysneyko (535): And hopefully original. That trailer is bland as can be. Is the story that unique or that bland?

What's in the box? - a different type thelastbard Jump to first page38Jump to last page 5 daysthelastbard (814): Just found another few things in a box... Nothing crazy, but since I was always buying anything X-Men, I thought they were notable. Has anyone else read these Christopher Golden books? Personally, I think they were the best. They were the first, too, go figure. The other reprints issues 110, 123, & 124 of Uncanny. ...

I'm probably going to shoot for a lower mid-grade copy. I feel like that fits within my budget the best. It's got to have the stamp and present well.

Secret Wars 8 Collection + Cover Swipes Masochism 8 26 daysBabaLament (376): Cover swipe collections are always cool. I completed the official ASM #300 swipe collection, the Spider-Man #1 (McFarlane/Torment) swipe collection, and now I'm also working on the Secret Wars swipes; but only the Marvel characters. After I get this set worked out, I'll probably move on to the rest of the connecting cover(s) sets.
Rusty staple (And migration) affect on grade QuaBrot 8 26 daysdoog (286): 8.5 is probably the best you can hope for, but, roll them bones if you can! Then let us know. Had a 9.4 but I sold it, I personally like the 199 cover better for my wall.

My Turn to Ask for a Grade Opinion Drogio 11 2 monthsKhumbu (106): It's funny, from what I can tell it is a book I would normally grade about 5.0 - 5.5 or so in my store. I just don't like those large color breaking creases. It also depends if the "punch thru hole" goes into the pages. Although I would be very careful to mention that flaw, it may be considered "pieces missing" by the grading guide. :(

I remember being at Halley's Comics in Pleasanton, CA in the spring or summer of 1990...all of 17-18 years old...and the clerk working there was hyping Death in the Family (Batman #426-429.) He was telling some customer how it had "only gone up" and was a "great investment." I'd been steadily watching this particular set for a while, and knew it was on the the downward slope. In...

FS 0.99 Bronze Age Ebay Auctions Ending Soon RyanHicks 4 2 monthsRyanHicks (769): Thanks guys, that is some good feedback. I am always torn about throwing that line in there because i have always kinda felt the same way when i read that; however, i always convinced myself that it is giving me a little added protection if a buyer ever disagreed with my grade; but ultimately, it doesn't matter cause if they disagree with the grade, they can always return it no matter what. I will likely take that out of my future listings; as...

Hulk #181 CaptainCanuck 20 3 monthsDocBrown (15328): That link tells you about the program. It's an interesting piece of Marvel history. An MVS cutout automatically reduces the book to the Fair's a perfect example of why a "Qualified" grade exists.
The Punisher is Coming JLS_Comics 7 3 monthsBigRedOne1944 (1615): Looks like the same ole same ole.... BORING Why can't someone make a Traditional Super Hero type Punisher Movie with an actually intriguing plotline. Secret Hide out, Battle Van, Micro Chip and a Super Villians. A more Super vigilante along the lines of the Batman Movies. But, Nooo.....

You talk about how the US is now "ranked below all other major countries" (without even defining what a "major country" is...that is, it's just a talking point)...and then try and tie that into "what is best for yourself" is "inherently flawed."

House of Secrets 92 - printing defect? jeranimal 9 3 monthskaptainmyke (12205): to me it looks like the book took some moisture at some point and those could be the "lifting" of ink spots being stuck to another comic. I see gloss loss in this most recent zoom, too?
LEN WEIN has passed det_tobor 1 3 monthsdet_tobor (652): December 2017 issues of DC has the newest 2 page spread of a famed staff member's passing. I saw Len at many cons over the decades and he was ALWAYS someone who cared as much as he wanted to have fun there. He was as big a fan after he became a pro as he was long before then. Great character creator too!

And also sent me a "reading copy" that was at least a VF copy. I was floored 2 for 1 :cool:. If Steve's around or if anyone else know does CBCS grade these? Oh and for the price on the one above usually when I see these they want 100 or so for them so not too bad of a price on that.

A very honest response from an e-bay seller! 00slim 25 6 monthsverbogyrater (217): They really do take you for an ass raping. I brought it up during a phone call to the billing dept and their rebuttal was that if you had a brick and mortar business you'd be paying for the costs of keeping that business afloat. My response was the whole idea of an internet business is to get away from those costs not pay just a little less...Frigging idiots. So you make 30 ...before all the ancillary costs and end up giving 10 percent off...

Opinion: 1973 Shazam Comic Negrito68 7 6 months50AE_DE (367): I agree. This book and #25 are books that will probably be valued higher than #1. Another book that may be a good book to get in the series is #27. I believe this is the first Bronze appearance of Kid Eternity.

Grading thoughts -HOS 92 vabchgent 28 6 monthsFUEGOMUSIC (397): This book has more tanning than the other one. However there córner creases are less. But it does have that stain. Might be a wash. However, make extremely sure that there is no color touch. Hope you have a UV light or check back cover to see if you see any bleed thru of color. Show a close up of the whole spine.

COVER CONTEST WEEK 41: BAD WEATHER JLS_Comics Jump to first page87Jump to last page 7 monthsDarthLego (20485): That is a really tough question. Each movie has its own unique greatness. I think probably though just going with which movie I had the absolute most fun watching would be Rogue One, it just had me on the edge of my seat for the whole movie, and then Darth Vader stealing the show was just icing on top.
DC Super Pack ... break open or not? Tedsaid 28 7 monthsBigRedOne1944 (1615): I agree, open them. If your planning on Subbing them for grading you need to be able to access the book's condition and that can only be achieved by opening them.

Stolen comics report ivegotneatstuff 18 10 monthsearthshaker01 (5695): Well let's keep it in perspective were talking comics not the Hope diamond. No surprise the only people that care about a stolen comic are a few comic collectors and the guy that owns the comic. I mean if it had a ton of value it would be insured. If it's not worth very much no one is going to say they found a stolen comic even if they could identify it.

How to Value Restored Comics??? QuaBrot 11 1 yearjrs (1453): I think it's generally wise to defer to the market price, however you would like to determine that. Although ebay prices often seem to reflect market euphoria when a movie hits or some other development occurs involving a particular character, at the very least it reflects the price someone is willing to pay for a given book. For restored books, I have sometimes seen very little difference in purchase price as compared to Overstreet pricing. ...

Grading Strictness Sliding Scale GAC 16 1 yearJWKyle (3292): @Jesse_O Great answers Jesse. If I remember correctly I've listened to interviews with Steve Borock where he basically stated the same thing. There is no Golden age "curve" but all books were not created equally and that is taken into consideration when grading. I do understand the argument though if I take a 9.6 modern and a 9.6 silver age book the modern will exhibit better eye appeal and seem to have almost no noticeable flaws.

Newsstand marks on older books jmh722 11 1 yearesaravo (7612): If you look at the CBCS grading guidelines, a comic in Fine/Very Fine condition can have one fairly obvious defect if the rest of the book is okay. So it's entirely possible that the books could at least grade at 7.0. If you can obtain them at the cost of a lower grade than that, like a 5.0 or 6.0, it should be worth it.

What book did you tape? Huffmaster 21 1 yearThemaxx35 (1708): It wasn't tape, but I recently dropped an otherwise pristine copy of my favorite Adam Hughes variant. The glossy cover just slipped through my fingers as I removed it from the bag. Resulted in spine stress on the back cover. The irony was I was prepping the book to be signed and sent in for grading. Plans changed pretty quick. I am hoping the damage will press out, but still seething over that one.

Has Grading Gotten More Strict? Jcorlin87 Jump to first page33Jump to last page 1 yearResurrection (637): Grading strict vs. loose with CGC/CBCS is usually a +1/2 or - 1/2.

Grading fluctuates very little, last year I received about 160-180 9.8s from CGC, this year they are a little more harsh. My submission with CBCS last year was tight, this year I don't know. But if you are seeing a 9.6 and it gets a 9.2. It...
