Need Help: Sketch Cover Grading Question5124

Collector HammitChris private msg quote post Address this user
I just got this Walking Dead sketch cover, which was done by Steve Lydic, who has done some work on The Walking Dead cards. The book is in near mint condition in my opinion, but on the back where he signed his name, there are some ink or pencil streaks. Would this drop the grade at all since it is a sketch cover or no? I am wanting to submit this book for a Verified Signature label. Thanks in advance!

You sure it isn't part of the signature?

No, they are light marks, almost like a drawing done in pencil would make on paper if another sheet of paper were rubbed up against it.

Transfer ink? One grade bye-bye if unable to be removed.

So do you think it would drop from like a 9.8 to a 9.6 or like a 9.8 to a 8.0 (hypothetically speaking)?

Just clean it off if you’re worried about it. Soft eraser.

Or hire someone to do it.

Yeah I was thinking about getting someone to dry clean it, do you think that would do the trick?

@SteveRicketts would know the answer to all these questions, and would be the man to clean it as well

why can't those zombies pull that off as fast as when they are ripping off flesh?

Because nothing motivates like hunger.

It may get a restored grade if there is any bleed thru on the spine.

There is no bleed thru on the spine or cover.
