Check out my Hulk 181 I got yesterday all the way across the pond from Australia. I love it.


































What grade do you think this would get? She's not perfect, but neither am I

TIA

From Australia with 25¢ on the cover??
Think there might be too many spine cracks to be worth a press.

I was initially thinking 5.5, but my TOS 53 got a 6.0 & it had more wear on the cover. So, 6.0-6.5.

Did you black light it?

That’s my next step. My black light broken I’m waiting on a replacement in two days because I’m too lazy to drive to the store

This book is on my list for SDCC this year. This and/or a Spidey 14 are coming home with me.

I'm leaning towards a slabbed copy. Buying a book of this caliber raw scares me.

5.5

Assuming you’re gonna fix that spine alignment before submitting?

If this helps, CGC gave this a 6.0 as is. Later it was CPR'd to a 7.0

Though yours has more surface wear, it's also brighter and cleaner.

I'd say yours is at least a 6.0- I have a hard time seeing those 2 big spine tics getting a 7.0, but...

5.5-6.0
The cover alignment is the only thing fixable with a press, imho.

COLLECTOR kaptainmyke private msg quote post Address this user
The cover alignment is not fixable. If you look at the back cover you can tell it was printed that way. I do wonder how miswraps effect grade.

I am in agreement with most of you. Figure on a 5.5 or 6.0, and if it comes back higher, even better.

except don't forget about that 181 9.2 that was floating around from CGC a couple yrs ago...had something like 8 moderate spine ticks. It was absurd

how did it get a 9.2?!

With some good trivial pressing see that getting a 6-6.5.

I will grade it for you just like CBCS would.

I will get back to you in, oh, about 4 months.

Send me money first.

I'd agree with the 6.5 area but there are others here better suited to grade it.
Nice book though.
