Would you send this in for a press and clean to try and get a .5 bump

Yes. The foxing really hurts a grade, but it sounds like it isn't much. And all the bends, and some of the n.c.b. stress lines should get better.

No. It would not help or give you a grade bump. If it did, it would be a 0.5 at best and not justify the grading fees, shipping fees, and pressing fees.

he only reason I would was because the price difference on a .5 would justify it I figured on this comic I was thinking

A more weighted answer would require knowing if you plan on flipping or holding the book. If you have the luxury of time and plan to keep it, sure, invest and protect your collection. If quick flipping is the goal, probably not so much because the gains do not outweigh the costs

I defer to your pressing expertise, but a half grade bump on a Daredevil 1 seems worth the price.

Not for flipping just personal collection

You have a long time to get a return back from the expense, so I see it as a smart move to protect and do what you can to make your copy look better. I never question this for my own comics, only if my goal is resale.

All depends on the competence of the presser. A press will certainly help.

@Steverogers11 Someone like Excel Pressing may even get you more than a .5

The whole book wear is troubling, but the spine stress lines could be easy if they don't break color. Light Foxing and bend can be removed.

Got any pics of the book?

Most definitely good chance of a grade bump. When that was slabbed CGC was tighter on grades compared to how they are now. Couple that with a press and I think you’re looking really good

Some may do better than that.

Well I guess Steve Rogers will have to send it in to a pro for the experts to find out who was more right

FYI, @Steverogers11 if you decide to send it in for a press, I can tell you that I've use Joe at CFP Comics and he does excellent work. He was an official presser for CBCS before they brought it in-house.

Well, there was that one guy, who worked for them briefly in-between.

Pressing is restoration in my book, and should be noted on any book that has had that restoration done to it.

of course using that logic you shouldn't use bags or boards with comics either because they remove acidic content that was part of the original condition of the comic therefore restoring the paper back to a more virgin state, So perhaps they should all have notations now that say at one time someone used a bag and board on it thus restoring the comic
