Alright guys let’s put your grading to the test. I know the before and post grades so I’m wandering what y’all think it was and it’s current grade that was handed down today

Before: 8.5/9.0; After: 9.6 - very nice pressing job. Did you do it yourself?

It was a 9.0 and only came back a 9.2 I am so disappointed. The only note is light bend on X. There’s no way in the world that a slight bend could take off that much. I may be wrong but my 9.6’s have more dings than this.

Isn’t the before grade shown in the background of the before pic?

@bige31 - We must be missing something, because that spine looks great. Who did the pressing for you?

I will post a scan of my 9.8 copy when I get home from work for comparison.

@esaravo I think so to. Or they really take off for a bend like that. A guy that works for trinity comics convention services that I met. I have him press and clean all my books.

@gotham44 I thought so to. That’s were I thought it would reach a 9.6 because there’s zero spine ticks after the pressing

I'm surprised at both the before and after grades.

Before: thought it was lower than a 9.0
After: thought it was higher than a 9.2

The last 2 before & after's were quite impressive- No pun intended.

A pressed book doesnt a perfect book make...must be other issues with it. Especially on a modern, little room for forgiveness. What's the page color? Any staining? How are all of the corners? We need to see the book front and back to get a better idea.

Either way, still an awesome book!

@comic_book_man white pages. No staining or round corners. I feel that would of been noted. Or it has on other comics of mine.

Here’s the before it got sent off to pressing

@bige31

Isn’t the signature series status forfeited because CGC/CCS didn’t press it?

@CaptainCanuck no. Because it was a CBCS comic and pressed and cleaned by an authorized CBCS facilitator.

@bige31

Oops. Still though, I thought Ricketts and Co. had to press it to keep Signature status.

@esaravo I don’t know how to get good grades anymore. It seems like everything I submit gets graded into oblivion.
