Comics Silver AgeGrading Help Needed

Batman 136 grading help please6903

Collector Joosh private msg quote post Address this user
So I mentioned I got this Batman comic as part of a package deal with the wrecked Iron Man 1. After being stared at in Mr Meeseeks, I had to show it.
I call it mid grade, but hesitate to give a single number.
What do you guys think?

Send it along with the Iron Man #1.

Do you think the soiling on the back cover would benefit from a clean?
Even if it doesn't help grade, the visual value would be worth it I think.

@Joosh I like this book a lot more than the I.M #1 you showed first. Thanks for showing it.

Press the book it looks really goood. The biggest problem I see with it is the rusted staples.

I agree with @Joosh. A pressing would probably clean it up a bit. I'd give it a 5.0

It looks like a nice book but rusty staples?

If I wanted this book to fill in a gap in my collection I would have no problem paying the guide price for 4.5 but a really, really avid collector who wanted this comic to fill said gap might pay a 5.0 price.

Excellent candidate for a press and clean. 5.0-5.5, maybe even a 6.0. Just the fact it has Yogi, Whitey and Micky on the back cover raises it grade!!!

I agree it is 5.5 as-is, but I'm pretty sure it will go 6.0 with a clean and press. Pretty tight staples, looks like some gloss left on the cover - which is fantastic for that age - and inside page quality looks good.

Staples don’t look rusty to me, guys. They do appear dark in the first pics.
I’ll likely be submitting this book to CBCS, just not sure when. Thanks for all the graded and advice!
