My books are back!7498

The time finally came today. The books I left at the CBCS booth made it back home.

I must say I am pleased with the grades; this was my 2nd submission and in my 1st I got “recalibrated” on my grading when I got back a 7.5 and 8.5 on books I thought were 9+.
After this batch I’m feeling more grading confidence.

Big shout out to CBCS Pressing @SteveRicketts for the work on Maximum Carnage and Spider-Man 2099 2nd print; fantastic work! The 2099 book I surgically removed from an unopened toy packaging because that was the only way I could get a high grade one. Even then it was already full of spine bends; fortunately they hadn’t broken color. The cover on this book is flimsy, not anything like the 1st prints.

Warlock Infinity Watch 1
Thor 500
Venom: Dark Origins 1 & 5
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 78
Maximum Carnage 1
Spider-Man 2099 1 2nd print
Silver Surfer 6

@Hcanes submitted at Great Lakes Comic Con 2/24/18, received at CBCS 3/14.
Some were clean/press, so all had to wait for those.

The SS6 was purchased at the same con the year prior for $5. Best find of my life so far. $10 bin half off!

Holy cow, a Silver Surfer #6 at 9.6! Where did you pick up that beauty??? That's just awesome. It's probably my favorite issue of the run... great story.

@Joosh

Great comics which you are obviously pleased with, and rightly so.

Thanks! Surprisingly enough I got it out of a $10 box at a con, seller had everything half off. It looked really dirty and scuffed, but it turned out it was only the plastic sleeve that was bad looking.

I did read this particular copy cover to cover before submitting for grading, it was an experience I thoroughly enjoyed. The story is a good one.

Thanks! It has all the hallmarks of a Newsstand edition, but it was only ever available packaged with the Spider-Man 2099 ToyBiz action figure.
I compared it with my 1st print newsie and you can see that Marvel simply took the 1st print newsstand edition and reprinted it on cheap cover stock without foil; the barcode is identical.
Nothing earth shattering but I find it interesting.
EDIT: Just want to point out CGC has no 9.8’s of Spider-Man 2099 1 2nd print in their census.

The story makes it cooler because someone like me does not open his toys unless I buy 2 of them. One to open, one to keep.

Well close...I get two to keep and then a third to open if I can.

Very cool. Congratulations! There are zero 9.8 copies of that Spidey 2099 2nd Print on the CGC census, by the way. (Edit: I missed the fact you mention that in another post)

I have 3 copies that I had them press. Hoping MAYBE one will get a 9.8.
