As it stands now I'd say 5.5 - 6.5 without a press.

@WCollecbales When scanning a comic, ALWAYS remove it from the bag. Even with that, it looks like there MAY be some rippling from the glue. Hard to accurately tell

Lol, not happening, WAY to scared about damaging the book! I've examined the book extensively and shown it to a few collectors I know and I can't see any rippling. The stuff you see near the spine are shadows created by the scanner. I'm using my grandparents old model as I don't currently own a scanner of my own. I'm not gonna get it pressed... even if it comes back a 5.0 I could make a good profit. Not selling it though, I doubt i'll ever be able to replace it if I do. Thanks for the help, I submitted it today so it's out of my hands, I'll know the grade in a few weeks and let you all know what it is when I do.

Same here. Joey or CFP_Comics has pressed hundreds of books for me. Square bounds, pedigrees, Signature Series, Sketches. the whole nine yards. In fact, I have another batch I'm getting ready to send as we speak.

Was Marvel doing the MVS when this book came out?

Yes, but it doesn't have one.

I can't believe I just wasted my knowledge on a self-educated person.

Sorry for the glare. May need another light shot before submitting. The marks are foxing and some rubbing from the staples.
