tough to see the corner creases and staple stress

7.0 - 7.5 seems reasonable

It's hard to tell but is that a tear on the back cover (bottom left)?

If it's a hair from the carpet, then it looks about an 8.0 lower if it's an actual tear.

yeah....7.5 seems right.
A press might bring it to 8 (get rid of that dent over the 'VEL' in marvel)

Yup - going with 8

Yeah..I thought that was one of those weird cover creases from production - if a tear then like 5!!

Back cover is a printer's crease.

Get it cleaned and pressed and you might be surprised.

Looks pretty good to me. 7.5? I'd say pressing would help. The press comes with a clean and this thing will look spectacular (eye appeal) afterwards. Pressing will add considerable time to getting the comic back, but if you're in no hurry, do it. edit: Based on ebay right now (which probably shouldn't be the bench mark but is the fastest to look-up), if it's a 7.0 or 7.5 and presses to an 8.0 it adds over $100 in value. If it's a 7.0 and presses to a 7.5 it adds basically no value.
