CGC horror story from mega con watch Zombie_Head 22 5 dayssoutherncross (28206): Yeah I saw that video but not knowing the graders notes I presume the book has defects that keep it as a 3.5 No matter taking out the spine roll and pressing and starching a book that has defects that can't be pressed away and keeps it a 3.5 is ever going to change. Though he did say he had a conversation with Matt we were not there to hear. It was possible that Matt said the book could increase in grade and it's possible he said it may...
Upcoming Shows drchaos Jump to first page85Jump to last page 5 daysRush_is_a_band (898): For anyone in or near the Austin Tx area, there is a comic book swap meet group that gets together regularly. We’ve got an event on April 27. Free to attend. Free to set up a single 6 foot table (first come, first served) Some crazy trades have taken place at previous events, like original Wrightson art for Avergers issue 2. For anyone in the area, here is a link to the event page on Facebook:...
Silver Surfer...Is this announcement a belated April fools joke? Scifinator Jump to first page34Jump to last page 13 daysSiggy (25333): Marvel and Disney can certainly pander to this particular crowd if they wish, and I'll never say they can't, but what makes me laugh is when they, the millionaire movie stars, the critics, and the mainstream media start demanding that we like it, accept it, and pay for it. The MCU already covered most of my childhood favorites with phases 1-3, and did a fine job with most of it (except for Iron Man 3), so I can just pop in one of those dvd's.

Mid-to-Low Grade Mail Call dielinfinite 7 1 monthdielinfinite (26345): Thanks guys! @Nuffsaid111 Thank you! That was actually a book my dad picked out and bought on his own. Not sure if he got whiff of them trying to get a movie off the ground or if it was something he remembered from his childhood but it was a good pick! Last year at SDCC I noticed a lot more localized manga books (Pokemon, Ghost in the Shell, Akira, etc) on dealers’ walls so it looks like there is interest out there!
A Great Story About Acquiring A Grail 00slim 4 1 month00slim (17323): @Belarak I only found him recently. I was watching a lot of “Froggy Flips” videos, who specializes more in hunting for vintage toys. I was looking for a YouTuber that did the same, but with vintage comics. It didn’t take too long to find Lunch Money Comics.
Worst looking CGC 9.4 NM graded book I have seen.. My 7.0 FVF..

If it comes back 7.5, then I'm good with it, but I'm convinced someone at CGC thought the cover was supposed to be white originally.

ASM #20 to remove staples or not? Joachim 14 2 monthsGAC (67968): From a purely presentation standpoint, having the spine roll removed is the priority.

The policies were too annoying to read through and compare. I'd set aside the weekend after I moved everything into storage as when I would officially purchase it. If only they'd waited a few more days to ransack the place. Gahh.. so frustratinmg :(

The only comic books lost would be the ones that people have forgotten about or not even known what they were in an attic somewhere.

He said he could always tell when a batch of mine came across his grading desk, due to the obscurity and higher grades. I haven't really talked to him about my collect too much since he went to comic link. He thinks it's very unique in rhese grades. I'm just at a point in my life that I want it all gone within the next few years. Kind of waiting to...

For Sale: X-Men #11 Signed by Jack Kirby (Raw) AcuMan 3 1 yearNuffsaid111 (18458): The old comic lover me loves subscription creases as well. That's when the comic mattered. Stories mattered. CGC and CBCS did not matter because they weren't around. Then, along came grading companies and made that subscription crease a maximum 5.0 (or so) grade. Which then translates into lower revenue. And now that I just dump this stuff after it's slabbed, I no longer like subscription creases since it makes an impact on my revenue.

Any Locking UV Protected Display Options For High End Books? 00slim 13 1 year00slim (17323): We have cameras on the outside of the house and an alarm system in place. And my collection is insured. The UV protection is certainly the main thing keeping me from just putting my AF 15 on a shelf. I’m not really expecting anyone to grab it and walk out with it. This is more like, “hey kids, look, don’t touch. Oh, but even if you wanted to, you can’t”. 😌

Quandary - What would you do? Scifinator Jump to first page41Jump to last page 2 yearsmulti007 (3851): I’d like to use the Walking Dead #1 pricing. As the popularity of the show skyrocketed, so did the price of that book. But as the show dropped in ratings (significantly I might add) the books prices dropped. I say SS popularity will continue to increase as the character has more exposure.

What grade would this fetch? Cosmic_Surfer 17 2 yearsByrdibyrd (24736): The book may not necessarily be trimmed. Try looking at the edge in question edge-on, as in looking straight at the cut edge. Is that edge where it's cut lighter than the rest of the paper? That's a sure sign that the edge has been exposed to the elements for a shorter period of time than the rest of the book, and the book has been trimmed. That's a lot of wear on the edge in that 3rd photo. I imagine that if it were trimmed it might show less....

Curious... What is the MINIMUM Slab Grade You Allow When Purchasing? MurrayC 13 3 yearskidhuman (1438): I have never purchased a slabbed book. For modern, I feel someone will have a raw copy given all the online stores out there. If I was to buy an older, bronze, silver etc. It would depend on the book and all. An Xmen #1, if I happen to have the $$$ at the time, I would go low grade, 1.0 but it would all depend upon the mood, the cover itself since that is what would be displayed mostly, and the timing of everything.

Revisiting RAW Grading ReCollecting 21 3 yearsReCollecting (41): One of the best advantages of RAW grading is that it provides a third option. The biggest question when purchasing a comic virtually is grading. You won't know the condition of the issue until it's in your hands whether RAW or slabbed. Yes, slabbed offers a higher level of physical protection, but not grading. And I've seen my fair share of damaged comic books inside slabs. In addition, there is a group of collectors who also include the...

CBCS vs cgc Scifinator Jump to first page59Jump to last page 3 yearsScifinator (14840): For the most part, I buy the CBCS label as I feel more confident that the grade is accurate. I only buy cgc if it is way underpriced or I just can't get it in CBCS.

Question: AF 15 00slim Jump to first page91Jump to last page 3 years00slim (17323): Given how sparingly the tape was used on the spine, my instinct is that they’re very small pieces to cover tears. And since the two pieces are noted as being on “interior cover”, I don’t think they’re on the staples. But it is a bit unnerving. I’m considering waiting for a crossover grading promotion at CBCS & have them look at the tape & see if it’s safe to remove it. Plus a Press screening.

Anyone relying on their comic collection to pay for retirement? agamoto Jump to first page47Jump to last page 4 yearsdrchaos (27359): I don't have a time machine but I did have the foresight to take good care of the roughly 2,800 books I bought between 1984 and 1994. I left collecting around 1994 and came back into the hobby as a dealer when my mother moved to California in 2009 to be with my brother's children. It was much easier to stay away from comics when storing my collection was easy. The learning curve involved with selling comics has been a long one but it has...

The seller is Chaucer Auction in the UK. They said the book was authenticated by Gary King of Autographica in the UK, but it's Beckett back here in the usa I need to worry about pleasing. Chaucer...

Best Boxes for Silver/Gold Mylites? Drogio 9 5 yearsX51 (14744): You can go with acid-free boxes, but I wouldn't sweat over the decision.

What grade would you give ASM 30? QuaBrot 20 7 yearsthecollector1 (4): The real question you have to ask is are you slabbing for future sale or just to confirm the grade. If so, i would have one of top dealers in your area grade it out. if its not a 9.2 or better there's no value in slabbing to confirm it.

I think all the ones I have aquired are easily 9.4 to 9.8. Plus if things go well I'll have atleast 3 of the 4 artists signed on the cover when I am all done next week.

Stolen comics report ivegotneatstuff 18 7 yearsearthshaker01 (19810): Well let's keep it in perspective were talking comics not the Hope diamond. No surprise the only people that care about a stolen comic are a few comic collectors and the guy that owns the comic. I mean if it had a ton of value it would be insured. If it's not worth very much no one is going to say they found a stolen comic even if they could identify it.
"Sun" Shadows on Comics QuaBrot 6 7 yearsCFP_Comics (3850): They can be caused by dust or oxidation from the sun. In some instances, the sun can cause the edges to become brittle which would greatly impact the grade. In most cases they are done on a sliding scale, the greater the shadow and brittleness, the greater the impact on the overall grade. There is no way to say it is half a grade hit or one full grade, etc.

Mine came with a little notation on the invoice. I ask because the only option in the pull down menu when submitting a book is the "Pennsylvania Copy," which I assume is the actual Steve Geppi Pennsylvania Pedigree. Would I just put in under the variant?
Should I risk a press or just reholder it? Darkga 16 7 yearsearthshaker01 (19810): Never had a problem with square bound. I have done tons of Dell giants and other square bounds. I tell ya based on the minor flaws @Stronguy pointed out, plus any other things that could happen once removed I would stick with the 9.6 as is, buy a 9.8 , then sell the 9.6 to recoup some of the 9.8 cost and be done with it. I mean you have to pay a presser, pay for regrading, and run the risk of something happening to the book once it's out and...

Grading Strictness Sliding Scale GAC 16 7 yearsJWKyle (3300): @Jesse_O Great answers Jesse. If I remember correctly I've listened to interviews with Steve Borock where he basically stated the same thing. There is no Golden age "curve" but all books were not created equally and that is taken into consideration when grading. I do understand the argument though if I take a 9.6 modern and a 9.6 silver age book the modern will exhibit better eye appeal and seem to have almost no noticeable flaws.

Where to get size guide (check trimming)? QuaBrot 4 7 yearsPovRow (568): Basically the centerfold should stick out a little more and, as you approach the first/last page (this is when the book is folded normally) gradually stick out less. It forms a > shape when looked at edgewise from the top or bottom. Just get a newspaper and you will see it easily. Some books have the illusion of being trimmed because more art is cut off on the right edge or the top or bottom. This can be caused by mis-wrapping where the...

How do you grade comics with loose pieces? kaptainmyke 20 8 yearskaptainmyke (27076): What's interesting to me is the prices of ASM jacked up tremendously from last years guides to this year. So, that 1.5 grade last year was worth around $1500 but this year shot up to $3500. This book will continue to go up in value so the 1.5 grade doesn't bother me much. Intrinsically being unrestored and complete is evident. When I bought the book, it was alleged as a 2.5 but when it changed hands the book literally was so fragile it...

Newsstand marks on older books jmh722 11 8 yearsesaravo (91984): If you look at the CBCS grading guidelines, a comic in Fine/Very Fine condition can have one fairly obvious defect if the rest of the book is okay. So it's entirely possible that the books could at least grade at 7.0. If you can obtain them at the cost of a lower grade than that, like a 5.0 or 6.0, it should be worth it.
