Collector Doran private msg quote post Address this user
Hello everyone, new to this board and hobby. Sent a few books in to CBCS but I’m inpatient and would like the thoughts of more experienced collectors.

There’s a stain on the cover, I’m ignorant about how much this affects a grade.

I'd say it looks like a 3.5 - 4.0
Stains really hurt a comics grade.

your book would benefit from a clean and press. not sure if the stains would come out but if they did you might get a 4.5.

It has good color, however the cover stains, a lot of creasing on the cover and numerous spine ticks and a split on the spine will hold it back.

I am going to go with GanaSoth on the low side with a 3.5 as it is, and then agree with GAC that a cleaning and pressing would push it up to a 4.0 and maybe a 4.5.

Great! This has me optimistic. It did get sent for cleaning and pressing before grading.
