Hulk 181 - Advice Needed6728

Collector cjbehr948 private msg quote post Address this user



So I joined the club today. Hulk 181, complete with Marvel Value Stamp AND the Mark Jewelers insert. Do I gamble & have it pressed and re-graded, or leave it as is? Here are the notes:

"spine roll, tears, wear, stress & creases breaks color. 2/3" bottom spine split
general wear & many creases to cover breaks color, some are long
1.25" corner piece off top right front cover
edge wear, creases & many tears"

That book would get damaged if pressed. The spine is too frail.

That's what I was wondering. My concern was the spine splitting in an attempt to remove the roll.

Yes for sure leave it as is, though it is tempting a pressing would probably bring it to a 2.0 but in the long run not worth it
Leave as is

Dude that is a book I submitted to CBCS. It will NOT be improved by a press. I'm not surprised the guy I sold it to flipped it though since prices have increased. I hope you didn't pay too much...

Some books are better left as is for preservation over conservation. The spine would certainly rip if attempting a spine roll fix.
