@Johnnyonthespot That is a horrible tade. Your book is worth 3-4 times more.

That's what I think...I have people making offers...low balling offers for it...like 400 for 101

No one is going to trade a high grade ASM 300 for a DC 880. You can buy a 9.8 880 on eBay right now for $475 OBO.

2 day modern if you opt out of pressing

I don't think X-Men 101 qualifies as modern does it?

Your X-Men 101 looks like a 9.2/9.4, considering the color breaking spine tick near the center of the spine, along with the other spine tick, which does not seem to break color, for the most part.It also seeems to have a slight stacking roll to the spine, that stacking roll can be pressed out. Don't see much else.

I would forego the 2 day grading in favor of fast tracked pressing and fast tracked grading.

CBCS's pressing rates are very cheap.

Fast tracked pressing & fast tracked grading combined will be cheaper than 2 day grading. And if there is a chance that your book will grade higher with a press, have it pressed

And to echo what the others have said, a VF ASM 300 is worth nowhere near what your book is worth.

I'm inclined to agree with having it pressed, especially if your intention is to sell.
