This name sounds familiar (e-bay seller)6334

kellyssuperheroes has had a raw TOS 52 up for sale for a while now. They claim it’s a 9.6.

No way I’d buy it raw at that price, but it does look sharp.

I bring it up because the name sounded familiar. Has anyone on here purchased from them? Was there a high grade book that came back from grading with either a sig that couldn’t be verified or some other issue?

I don't recognize the book - but if I were selling a book of that age and claiming that quality and asking that price I would spend a couple bucks to get it graded and then probably get multiples of what is being asked.

Not a fan of raw books for anything above say $300ish

Description states: “Very slight professional color-touch, slightly trimmed”.

Good catch @CaptainCanuck, it was right there & I missed it.

The way it was broken up confused me. Asking that much for a restored book, they’re shooting for the moon.

I remember a year or so ago I came across this seller, and then noticed that some of his listings said "unrestored" and others didn't - and then I noticed he likes to restore his books. I didn't recognize the name, but I scrolled through the other listings and it came back.

I wouldn't touch any of the restored books.

The non-restored books are softly graded, as well.

From what I read on the CGC Forums, this is either Danny Dupak or a Danny D front.

I wouldn't give this character 20 bucks for an Action #1.

Please read his descriptions carefully as I believe most have some restoration

Yeah. As @CopperAgeKids said, soft grading for sure according to the CGC forum. And not noting restoration in the title is an understandable thing, but I’d certainly disclose it there if I was selling it.
