@GAC Thanks man. The Hawk and Bats presents nicely. Spin splits will kill a grade but don't usually effect the appearance of the book.

Just picked these up today. All but one are books belonging to an older guy I know who isn't comfortable dealing with things like "slabbing" and "online selling," so I do it for him. The unfortunate part of that is I just took his "these are all in near-perfect shape" statement at face value and didn't inspect the books myself before sending them in. He'd managed to put a massive crease in the back cover of one of them when he bagged it. See if you can figure out which one.

These will all be for sale, btw.

The grader notes on that Detective 880 are painful. "light spine stress barely breaks color"

Granted I'm looking at it through the slab, but I don't see it (I'm sure it's there, but damn it must be tiny). Any other day that could have gotten a 9.8 and no one would have blinked.

I forgot to add OO...everything GA I post was purchased by me
new off the newsstand or new from W.T. GRANTS.
With these three, I just realized my total of Graded Comics is
102.

so I got part of my last submission to cbcs. There are 9 more that are in grading now. The showcase I knew had restoration, was told color touch only and after I took it home could tell there was more work done. I knew it going in so really didn't care but the page missing was a oh crap moment. I got a hold of the store I bought it from and I'll be seeing him this week to see what we can work out, a full refund or a partial refund. He wasn't happy but neither was I. The other 2 books was in a set I bought from a dealer before the pandemic all three raw for 1300. The Grendel is the only 9.8 signature on either census

@Batman66 Sucks on that Showcase. Nice finds otherwise. I had that TTA 13 once upon a time. It was part of a big collection of Silvers that I had purchased. Ended up selling some of the lower valued ones to make some of my money back. At the time it was only about $10.
