I remember that All-Star 58. I'm shocked it graded that highly after I drooled on it.
Seriously, that was a sweet copy. After I pressed it, I knew you had the 9.6.
I have a nice copy, but yours was just fantastic. Congrats on the grades.

Tough books to find in those grades.

I had all three in the same grades but sold two of them. Now I only have the Look Sharp book (my copy is below.

@Darkga - I should have either sold you this copy, or I should have sent it to Steve before I had it graded.

I remembered that you got that 9.4 on your other copy you submitted straight up, so I was pleasantly surprised by the 9.6 on this one. The press put it over the top though. You definitely should have pressed yours. In fact, if I were you, I'd gamble on a CPR for your book. You might luck out on a 9.8.

I use a lot of moisture. I read them while I shower, the press.
