Highest grade possible with missing pages1845

Collector Waddly private msg quote post Address this user
I was searching eBay for old graded Tarzan comics (CGC or CBCS) and found a comic graded by CGC at 7.5 Qualified grade with 4 missing pages. How is it possible to have a grade that high with ANY missing pages?

As far as I know .5 is the only grade a book can get with missing pages. I could also be very wrong.

CGC goes "qualified", CBCS stays true to classic grading and gives it a poor .5

@shrewbeer To be fair, you can request a blue label from CGC for any book that would get a qualified label and they'll take the defect into account. Of course you have to be aware of the defect as you submit otherwise a green label might arrive at your door without warning

Good to know thanks!

Green label = fake grade imo

A defect like missing pages shouldn't qualify for any "adjusted" value, especially in this case where the label indicates the missing pages effect the story line.
