Stopped collecting when I was 17. Now am 54 and am taking some time during Covid isolation to try to come up with values and determine whether I should have some pressed, etc.

Welcome. It looks like it's in VG (4.0) condition. Pressing will definitely help but the foxing on the interior covers will likely hold it down in grade.

@Geohans can't wait to see what other books you have. I got back into collecting in '17 and am the same age as you

Based on the number of allowable defects as per Overstreet in it's current state, I would have to give this a 3.0. However, a number of these defects can be removed with a clean and a press and give it a well deserved bump. Either case a gem to own this early Ditko work of art.

Just an FYI, Go Collect has the FMV of this book at $425 in a 3.0 and $475 in a 4.0. Good to know I'm not the only one in their 50's in this chat....Nuff said.

I am in the 50's club too. I was also just looking at that data. @Geohans Welcome aboard. The only reason you would not want to get it cleaned,pressed, and slabbed is if you have higher grade books or key books that would be more desirable to get graded. It also depends if you were looking to sell some of them or keep them. This could influence your decision too. If you are looking to sell it, you will maximize your profits getting it graded. It will help rule out restoration like color touch and trimming. The buyer will feel more comfortable with purchasing a $400 book.

@Geohans - Welcome aboard! Can't wait to see what other beauties you have to show us. I believe a press and clean would make that book look nicer, but also think that the foxing/staining will probably limit the grade to around a 4.0. It is still a great early SA book that you do not see very often. Thanks for posting it.
