Grade these comics8780

Collector ZZXMAN private msg quote post Address this user
Hello everyone,

Yesterday I bought these really cool comics.
In which condition do you think they are and what price they usually costs in that grade?

Thanks!

Fantastic four annual 6:
Only paid 12,50€ for it! ($14 approx)












Special Marvel Edition 15:
Paid 39,50€ (44$ approx) for this issue 15 and a copy of 16.
(note that it has blue ink on the top, bottom and on the right of the cover).










Amazing Spider-Man 66:
Paid 19,50€ ($22 approx)

They are actually in pretty great shape. Me I would say 7.0 -8.0. You would want them pressed and cleaned though for sure.

Wouldn't that crack on the spine limit the FF Annual 6 to a 6.5 at best?

@ZZXMAN I like the ASM 65 the most. Possibly 8.0 It is hard to tell from the picture. But a good purchase for $22.

Go collect has the Fair Market Value at $90 for an 8.0 Unfortunately no key book or first app.
Also I was wondering if that is a sheet of micro paper sticking out? It looks like something is extending past the edge of the book.

I'm just going off overstreet, which says a 6.5 can have upto an 1/8" split in the spine. I just wasn't sure where it's at on that book if it would be considered as corner wear

The back is clean. Staples are all there and the book is holding together well.

I was thinking between 4.0 - 5.0. I’d much prefer your top end of the spectrum.

if you got this pressed and cleaned and fix that spine roll I would say easy 6.5-8.0. Depends on how much of that color loss fades back together with heat pressing?

Heat pressing can and has fixed minor color loss in creases before👍 But if it’s ripped that’s gonna hurt real bad like real bad

That's a backing board.

Cbcs limits the size of the photos, so I upload 4K photos of that ASM 65 from google photos.

What’s the best way to have these books graded? I also have a few more keys from the SA that I want to send in.

Am I best going to a show or is it safe to mail them in? Never done this before, so I’m not sure.

go to a show for sure it’s the best and cheapest way!!! Plus they help you through the paper work. Just remember you want to screen and press!

There are two different topics in the same post and it's very confusing.
That's why I've told to @Haljordanfan that if he want to talk about his comics, please do it! but in a new post.

I was fearful that the cleaning and pressing could damage a book. Is that possible on these books?
