The right edge may not allow higher. Is that the dreaded "thumb crease?"

@Darkseid_of_town not 9.8 unless you have that sticker that verifies that is a 9.8

Just for educational purposes (I'm still working on my grading skills) what makes this an 8/8.5? I see the blunted corners and a couple of spine ticks on the back cover, what else am I missing?

There appears to be a thumb/finger crease to the right of "VENOM IS BACK!"

This, along with the color breaks associated with the spine ticks on the back. No lower than an 8.0, but I feel 8.0 is more likely than a 8.5 due to the crease on the front?

Thanks everyone. It has tiny indents on cover too from me probably writing on top of it back in 89. I guess if I sub I'll press.

The pressing will definitely help out the indents. I'm thinking 8.5

Let's not get carried away now. Maybe a 17 and 5/8.

Always press IMO, coming back with a 9.6. That would of been a 9.8 with a press is frustrating to say the least
