Sticky stuff ;)3573

A comic that I am interested in is graded at a VF+ due to sticker residue from price tag. Can this be easily removed and bring the grade up??

@Mickee92 give Giles a call at Asgard Comics.. Just had a couple of my books back from him and he got all of the sticker residue off one of my books. Top dude and UK as well!!

Hmm the seller wants £60 for VF+ UNCANNY X-MEN #266 & NM x-men #8 FIRST APP GAMBIT + BELLA DONNA MARVEL COMIC LOT

If the sticker residue is removed will that take the grade up?

I like the look of that asgard comics cheers!!

@Mickee92 where is the sticker located and what is the sticker? is it a price label?

It depends on how old the residue is and how much there is and if it stained the paper fibers beneath it

Apparently off of a price label and top left front cover.

@Mickee92 Giles will only charge you a tenner for the effort. Its worth getting it off to preserve the book for the future either way and if it gets a grade bump then even better. He can also press it for you in with that cost. That alone may even jump the grade.

use a q-tip and GOO GONE.

I use it every day on turtle toys that have card backers with price tags on them. will not damage the comic and gives it a nice citrus aroma

When it comes to modern comics (anything 90's & up) I'd highly recommend holding out for solid Near Mint copies. Books from this era are common in Very Fine & Near Mint Minus.

Removing the residue might raise the grade, but, it's not a hard book to find that book in higher grade.

You need instructions on how to use a q-tip and rub one out?
