I’ve never gotten comics graded before, I’m new to this and I was wondering are these 2 comics even worth submitting for grading? The captain America is being held together with tape. There are no pages missing but they’re in awful shape. I’m guessing they would receive the lowest grade available. Would they even be encapsulated and would it be worth it?

They seem better candidates to line the bottom of a bird cage.

A nice copy of Cap 111 is well worth grading but the one in the picture is beat to hell.

I'd save your grading money for a book in better condition

Before you do anything, make sure that you read that Cap, do not miss the opportunity of discovering Jim Steranko's works.

@Torr102 The only reason to encapsulate these would be sentimental value if you wanted them to be preserved in their current state for a longer period of time with a nice presentation.

They will gain no value other than what your emotions say.

Cool books!

Don’t waste your money on getting a grade assigned. If you want a hard piece of plastic around them go with comic skins.

Create your own label. And be able to open the case if you want to hold or read it again. Same price as a graded slab...a lot less waiting!

This is a good alernative @Drogio !

@Torr102 This could be an option for you. It all depends on what you want.
I assume by coming here you want a graded book, but if you don't there are other options...including just putting them in mylar bags with boards.

@Torr102 ~ Take the above advise, it comes from experienced members. I would strongly suggest that you look at why you want to slab, what are your alternatives, the (often surprisingly high)cost(s)in doing so and also rushing into a system that may noe work for you. Good luck with whatever you decide.
