I was pretty much ripped off through OfferUp...my fault really I wanted it so bad and he never mentioned the back cover and when I asked him if he could take it out so I can look at it...he complained said he was in a hurry...so I bought it for $250...Ouch is right

Nope. Never. You ask to see both sides. Hurry or not.

If someone is in a hurry to get your money and doesn't want you to inspect their wares, that is Red Flag number one!

@Johnnyonthespot What is Offer Up? Is that like Craigs list? You got screwed big time. Do not put that comic book with your other books. Mold will find new hosts.

The guys at my local comic book shop (LCS) told me it would be a good idea to keep it away from my other books...and I meant is there any sort of restoration,.I heard pressing and dry cleaned..so far...I'm just going to keep it as a reader.

Send it back for a refund, as long as you paid via PayPal, you will get your $250 back.

Most credit card companies also offer PURCHASE protection, as the item clearly had an undisclosed and significant defect, you should be covered either way.

FYI, the last time I had a copy of this book it was a raw VF, sold it for $200 at a show in CT, about 3 years ago.

Slabbed 8.0's were going for around $250 at that time, they probably are still averaging $250 in 8.0.

You essentially paid the price of a slabbed 8.0, for what is likely a raw 1.5.

I wish it were that easy...I met him in person and he would get out of his car claiming he was in a hurry saying he needed to pick up his daughter and that he was already late in doing so.,and he doesn't even respond to any of my emails at all...and furthermore he has the book still listed for sale so as I can't give a bad review..

Well, a lesson with some cost to it, but worth every penny if you learn from it. Relatively speaking, the lesson was fairly cheap.
