Grading Help Needed

Is this worth pressing/grading?4016

I decided that after all these years of collecting, slabbing/preserving key issues is a good idea, I go back and forth on weather or not I should slab my copy of SW #37, Will pressing improve it's score any? And then should it be slabbed?...

Not worth it to slab. Even if pressed, it's not going to improve the grade by much if any.

I see too many big defects to bother with slabbing it.

Would cost more to press and grade than it's worth right now. Use the funds towards a nicer copy

Not worth a slab. A pressing may help it's overall appearance but not much in terms of actual grade.

What everyone else said.

Pointless side note: ST #37 begins the "American Gothic" storyline that ran from #37 to #50, exploring all the tropes and legends of American mythology.

It's quite the fun ride!

Cool cover art though. If you like it and want to keep it for your own collection ...

when the value itself is too low to press and slab, that is well you make the decision based on sentimental reasons. Does this specific copy mean something to you? If not, buy a better copy.

@VictorCreed & DarthLego....

Yeah it's staying in my collection - it doesn't display too badly though I might put it in a top loader (bagged & boarded as it is a key issue).

I do hope I come across a good copy one day but this will have to do for now.

100% agree. I sent in 11 comics to CBCS for slabbin. 7 for value reasons. 4 will be worthless value wise, but priceless personal wize.....
