Grading Help NeededQuestions

Misprinted Comic5766

I bought a variant issue of Infinity Countdown #1 this past week, but when I got home I noticed that the cover was bound upside down and there are pages that weren't bound in the book. Is this a mistake that could make it more valuable? Is it worth getting graded?

YES! IT IS SUPER RARE! DON't let HUMIDITY get in to with, flip the pages with a tweezer if you need to read it.. also, I think you can get like $80 for the super duper rare staples that didn't bound the comic.. lol

Printing and binding errors are typically deemed to be an undesirable defect.

FYI, if there are pages mossing,it will get a point-five grade. Production error or not.

This reminds me of an x-factor book I once had that had an extra piece of paper on the top right corner of every page connecting pg. 1 to pg.2, pg. 3 to pg. 4 and so on.

That type of production goof is frowned upon, but double covers are not. Why is that?

I thought i saw somewhere double covers are desirable.

Double covers are more desirable. It preserves the inner.

Ah. Well that kind of makes sense, but it still boils down to production defect, no?

I own a couple of double covers, but never submitted one for grading until about 5 months ago (make sure you note double cover on your invoice). Got it back last Friday. Both covers get a grade and the book receives the highest grade listed.

The strangest misprinted comic I own has a Wolverine cover, but a Ghost Rider story inside. I bought it graded at an auction.

Pretty strange. I got it fairly cheap (in my opinion) at an auction a few years ago because I think no one read the description and just thought it was an 8.5 Wolverine #25. Not sure what it’s worth, but I think it’s pretty unique. The only thing I own that’s close to this is my copy of the Superman vs Ali Treasury-sized comic. That book repeats several wraps at the center.

I have 3 double covers books (ASM 148 CGC 9.6 W, Longshot 1, and Powerman 24 1st Bill Foster as Goliath), all 3 discovered after the purchase. I dont think I own any others kind of 'defect' besides bindery.

Siamese pages! I’ve owned a few of those, its a tough grade hit if someone rips them apart as well.

So technically, this book should have gotten a 0.5.

In all my years of purchasing comics (since 1966, maybe), I don't think I ever bought a book with a double cover,so, IMO, they must be pretty rare out there.

I bought a Hulk #191 (I think) off the newsstand with a double cover. I think it had Glorian & the Shaper in it.

Well, the grade label is totally wrong. That isn't a Wolverine comic with Ghost Rider guts; it's a Ghost Rider comic with a Wolverine cover. The guts IS the comic. Or, are the comic. Whatever. Point is, the cover just advertises what's inside.

I'm really surprised CBCS made such an error. I wonder if they still do it that way.

I have a few double covers. This is my oldest one. And it is a pedigree copy.

The only error I own (that I'm aware of) is a copy of Witchblade vs The Darkness 1/2 where the centerfold was incredibly off center and miscut, exposing the registration marks and losing nearly a page of the story
