I have a really nice copy of X-men 97 that has no staples. Any restoration service out there that can handle this?

thanks

I guess you should start out by finding another book from roughly the same publication date to serve as a doner. Then the restorer can just worry about the transplant surgery.

Heck, here's a coverless copy of that same book

Although, it might be less of a hassle to just buy another copy since it doesn't appear to be too expensive a book. Unless it has some sort of sentimental value, I guess

To be honest, I wouldn't waste my time or money on it. There's a qualified 8.5 on eBay for sale for $81. Sounds like yours would be about the same??? Save up and buy the 9.2 for $200 on eBay would be my recommendation.

Sounds like this book was a donor. Need a donor for a donor?

Really though, between shipping and professional fees, you're better off buying another one or putting the staples in yourself
