Grading Help Needed

Does this need to be pressed?14146

Hi All,
This book is super clean. The only thing I see is a sort of bulging along the spine (not sure what that's called). Is that something that would lower the grade? Does this need to get pressed before sending in for grading?

spine roll
Yes - it will lower the grade; yes - absolutely press. It will come right out

When in doubt, always press. You could do a press screen in for it also.

Yoosh, a press will take care of that spine roll and the bologna sandwich between page 16 and 17.

yes press it. That a stacking crease or the pages have been rolled over when read.

Spine roll is different (also fixable); that’s when the spine itself has literally been rolled over and no longer folds at its original crease.

Definition:
Spine roll is the misalignment, or shifting, of the spine to either the front or back of the comic. Spine roll repair is an invasive process and is not performed on a comic that has a fragile spine. In most cases, spine roll can be greatly improved, if not eliminated completely.

When in doubt press. An experienced presser won’t damage a book so it will rarely if ever hurt to press a book with someone who knows what they’re doing.
