CBCS Pressing

Should I consider getting this pressed? (Amazing Spider Man 300)16998

Collector Skywatching private msg quote post Address this user
Hi,

I am new to the forum and grading of comics. Just going through my collection and looking for ones that have value. My Amazing Spider Man #300 is one of them, and I plan to get it graded. My question is, should it also be pressed? I've looked at some of the discussions about what makes a good candidate, and I don't really see much that applies to this book. Considering the huge delays currently for pressing, I am thinking I shouldn't bother, and should just get it graded. I'd love to hear anyones thoughts on it.

Thanks!

No brainer, actually.

Have it pressed (full book press, including spot pressing as needed) and slabbed.

WTTB.

Welcome to the forum!

Fantastic book! I'd be inclined to get modern books pressed because they get hit harder on grade for defects. Yiu maximize your grade potential with a press. That book appears high grade!

Congrats!!

Press it, the only thing you have to lose is time.

Nice book! I got my ASM 300 pressed and it jumped from a 9.4 to 9.6. On a different note, McFarlane signed it too.

If the viagra is working you should be well over a 9.8. xkonk private msg quote post Address this user
As long as there isn't anything grade-limiting that pressing can't fix (like a tear), I would get it pressed. A book that expensive will go through pressing fairly quickly anyway.

For future reference, pressing and grading should always go together, unless the book is so fragile it won't allow a press. Welcome aboard.

You won't regret pressing. But you may regret not

I’d be happy to press if you don’t want to do pressing in house so you can get your book back quicker if you like

I'd send it in for press & grade, but add a press screen. If whoever inspects the book thinks it has no pressable defects (and that looks like a very nice book), then it won't get pressed and it'll go straight to grading.

If it's worth slabbing, it's worth a press and clean. Always.

I think its a given that you need to send to a reputable presser.

and always take into account the starting condition of the book i.e. a fragile book barely hanging on to a staple might not be a good idea....this ASM 300 doesn't appear to have any of those types of risk factors.

I think where I am just beginning I will take the slow mainstream approach, but thanks for the offer.

@HexView, if your pressor knows his or her stuff, they will improve the grade of even a rag like you have pictured there. Believe dat.

Not my rag. Someone sent it to Joeypost after the amateur presser ruined it.
