While its not the best way to hold a comic lol....it doesnt hurt them if done properly.

I have held many like that and they grade 9.8

Remember his photos are being taken vertically but posting sideways....that changes things

I cant tell if he is just rounding them (i hope) or causing creases...if creases NOT GOOD

Not to mention, his fingers better be CLEAN lol

He lists them as "High Grade" I would recommend he put asterisk *Must Press book to reach grade I am describing.

You might b able to get a good deal on them....if others are scared away by his handling and he hasn't damaged them. I'm more concerne about fingerprints...

sigh...Ill give you respect and share a video due to your post count...but cmon now...

Again, Im NOT advocating this at all. I have a massive library of comics from collecting since mid 80's I keep sacred and hundreds graded BUT it doesnt scare me AS LONG as his fingers are clean lol

@Bontchimuz Now do it to a NM comic that's 20+ years old and actually of some value (for the drama).

Im actually really considering it.

I LOVE XMEN....so doing it even to that one "hurt"

How about a xmen #101 in NM?

I seriously might do it....thats how much confidence I have in "bending" versus "creasing" lol

These are the pictures from buyers I actually buy from. Because I know so many will be weeded out from the condition paranoia and mania. I recognize it seems sacrilegious but it works with finding outstanding deals for... yes... high grade comics. So everyone please do continue to turn away in disgust from this. Please

WOW! Being bold?

I'd never do it to an XM 101....but then again, I don't own an XM101.

Collector thelastbard private msg quote post Address this user
I'm always thankful I have stupid level dry hands most of the time, BUT I get freaked out even touching my own comics (God help people who breathe on my books - STOP LOOKING AT MY PICTURES!!!). The bend doesn't bother me toooooo much, but I also know that it's not about the bend, but the pressure between the thumb and fingers/hand beneath and the damage that connection can make to the book, plus the residual fingerprints/oils on the cover. Twitching like a good Legion cover...

Did I have a proper comic geek-out moment? Oh $%#@... I should shut up.
