ASM 300 CGC 9.6 : CPR For 9.8 CANDIDATE4796

https://m.ebay.com/itm/Amazing-Spider-Man-300-CGC-9-6-1st-Venom-UNPRESSED-CPR-9-8-CANDIDATE/202111589910?hash=item2f0eca1e16:g:T~kAAOSwTQtaBRmQ

Picked this slab up, along with about 15 other CGC slabs, over this past week, from the original owner/original submitter.

He did not have any of his books pressed, before subbing them.

I have yet to list most of the slabs, they are all going up on eBay tomorrow.

This ASM 300 has favorable potential to CPR at 9.8.

If I were taking bets, I'd give it at a minimum a coin toss, at a 9.8 with a CPR.

Likely, 60 to 40 odds of fetching a 9.8 with a CPR.

@CopperAgeKids if odds are in favour - why not try to get it pressed and slabbed yourself?

It looks more like about a 9.68 to me after all the measuring/mechanical devices that determine the objective grade are finished grading the comic... oh yea... that's right... it's subjective

I'll have to remember this. When I go to sell my unpressed 9.8's, I'll market them as potential 10.0's and bump up the price

I always wonder the same exact thing when someone markets a book this way...especially someone who considers themselves a professional presser.

It can go either way.

If I were absolutely certain thst I can get a 9.8 by CPR'ing it myself, I would wait intil I sub books to CGC at WinterCon, the first week of December, and prep it for grading myself.

I do not like subbing raws through the mail to CGC or CBCS.

I strongly prefer (for numerous reasons) to sub books in person to either CGC or CBCS, at conventions.

If I can get $800 for the book now, as is, I will take it.

If not, I will crack her open before I go to WinterCon in December, and press it, myself.

That is not what I am doing.

At all.

The book is not priced above recent sales for CGC 9.6, per GPA.

A CGC 9.6 sold for $800, last week.

The book has mulgiple spine ticks thst do not break color.

Note the slight recess at the top staple, which would be corrected with a press.This recess would be resposible for uneven pressure on a book's spine, shich is what would have caused non color breaking spine ticks, originally.

The downstream effect of the pressure was not significant enough to break color, save a tiny CB near the top staple.

There is a non-color breaking finger bend on the top RC of the FC.

Another pressable defect.

The only defect I can see thst could possibly deter the book from definitively hitting a 9.8 is the 2 small dings, at the top of the FC, middle of the cover.The slightly larger ding looks to be a finger bend, the paper is bent forward.

Pressing will flatten the larger ding, where the paper is visibly bent.

There will likely be a color break present at that area, after pressing.

A press will remove 3,out of the 4,visible and noted defects.

Here is the breakdown:

1)
Spine ticks

2)
Top staple recession

3)
Finger bend at RC of FC.

4)

Tiny edge wear & finger bend top middle of FC,

The fourth defect will be partially remedied with a press.There will still be a minute color break after the top mid area of the FC (2nd pic) is pressed out, with a much smaller minute edge abrasion to the left of it, clearly visible in the second picture...and 2 other close up shots I provided.

Conservatively speaking, this works out to a coin toss.

I spent over 2K this past week on books.

I have thousands more tied up, in unpressed books,

Ya wanna see a pic of 3 desks with stacks of books that I need to press before I have them graded?

Than pics of every single flat surface in my basement....it is not pretty.

The question is do I want to wait another 2 months to *possibly* maximize my profit or just cash out at what a recent CGC 9.6 sold at?

Answer:

I have a hundred books, easy, that I need to press and sub at WinterCon.

Sitting right next to me is a Journey Into Mystery 103 that will.likely get an 8.0, after I press and sub it.

It will take an hour just to dry clean it....and the Ragnarok movie is already in theaters.

I bought this JIM #103 around 2 years ago for around $150, IIRC.

I have plenty of books like this.

This slabbed ASM 300 may catch a 9.8 with a press but it may stay at 9.6.

It is not pressed, but it is already slabbed.

I probably..well....I really should just CPR the ASM 300 myself, but at the same time, I need to rein myself in from hoarding books.

Why does every post sound like a tutorial or a used car sales pitch?

If you are going to sell a book, list it and sell it. It really is that simple.

I wasn't saying anything about the price. Seems fair enough, you have it about in the middle of other similarly graded books. I was commenting on the seed you planted by suggesting it has the possibility of grading higher if the buyer cracks it open, has it pressed and regraded. I also didn't say there was anything wrong with it, just that it was an interesting marketing tactic. More power to ya!

It is actually priced on the higher side, 90 day GPA average is $680 & trending upward.

High sale for 2017 in cgc 9.6 is $1050, low sale for 2017 is at $350.Low sale had to be before the Venom movie was confirmed, high at $1050 was probably right around when the movie was confirmed.

Most recent 3 sales were $598,$800 and $700.

It likely would have already sold within a day, if I priced it at just under $700 i.e. 90 day GPA.

I'd feel like a chump though, if I listed it at $680, knowing it has a decent chance at a 9.8 with a CPR.

Point taken, I am probably wasting my time...buuuut, I was asked a question by Poka and Logan510 made a comment, which I felt should have been responded to in detail.

Damn dude, did you have many friends growing up? You are really difficult to get along with. I was trying to give you the benefit of a doubt. You don't need to be so concise and correct every little thing.

That meme wasn't directed at you.

I was being honest.I could have accepted your compliment and agreed that "yeah, my price is fair" etc etc...

You said my BIN price was fair and in line with other CGC 9.6's on eBay.

I said my price was a bit on the high side.

It would be disingenuous, on my part, to reply otherwise.

I will happily let it go, but duuuude....I can't, in good conscience, let the last post in a thread which I started....end up with a Little Mermaid meme.

How about we agree to (mildly) disagree over a bit of mutual ball polishing, courtesy of The Big Lebowski?

Sounds pretty good to me.👌

That's a pretty unsettling image.

Why did ya have to take a perfectly acceptable Thor meme and render it into something so unnerving?
