Would you rather have a hole punched comic or marker scribbled on cover by child?

even with all the holes punched in like that Sub Mariner? Maybe they will eventually recognize hole punches like tape and just ignore it when grading?? Lol

So using @dielinfinite Sub Mariner comic as a reference. Would you be able to "Trim" a comic using a hole puncher and get no restoration or notation on the label? LOL

Seeing as that Sub mariner got no notation. I think I found a new scam...

I'm not a fan of scribbles by any means, so this "would you rather" is sort of a tough one.
If I had to choose...hypothetically speaking....LOL....

Scribble...because a hole punch could affect the story or possibly a panel.

How much would it cost to restore It? Any guesses? I believe restored comics are worth about half their assigned grade (key issues). Then an 8.5 would be worth a 4.0 to 4.5 vice the 0.5 to 1.5 this comic will likely receive. Just a thought.

@Drogio Tough to answer. Honestly restored comics are a tough sell. I would think buying a comic knowing it was restored, you would just keep it forever. Trying to sell restored comic would give me a headache, lots of low ballers out there.

If I had to sell a restored comic I would just have Stan lee sign it, lol.

@HarRes are they actual "punched" holes like that craziness @Truck posted (or the complete abortion @diel posted)? Or are they binder tear holes (ie someone jammed it into a three ring).

If its the latter, its a complete book and could get a higher grade as it would just be small tears. I've seen one of those pressed well enough that from inside slab it was very difficult to tell it had been ever been speared.

They are punched holes.... with a hole puncher. They are perfect circles.

Not the slightest clue, hence the curiosity 😁

Its really a grey area, and depends on if CBCS considers it incomplete or just damaged. The others on here are probably right, 3.0 is my top of grade guess as well

I don't understand how the hole punches in ASM 1 didn't result in a grade lower than 2.0.

Every single page is hole punched three times. That seems like such extensive damage that the book would/should have received a 1.0 or worse.

Learn something new every day.

This person may have actually reasoned they were taking care of it rather than putting it in their back pocket. lol Not a lot of people back then thinking like we do today.

Whoever did it probably had others set up like this for easy reading on the go. They, in there own way, did exactly what was expected of them in the 1960's; They read them.

And you can believe comics were not published for the nit picky collectors we've become. They are now, of course, but not in the 1960s

Grading is subjective. If it were resubmitted, it could very well come back 1.0

Happens quite often with resubs.
