  1. Wow so sad to hear. I interacted with him on here many(memorable) times. Had to sign in to pay my respects.
  2. I buy a copy every year. Sometimes through Gem usually through Amazon. Most years I pre-purchase & get it late June/early July. Still waiting for my copy to ship since I checked last night though. Would be nice since I paid for it a month ago.
  3. While not venturing a guess as to what the grade might be today I would say that after close inspection of the slab I do not see alot of damage to the book itself. I do see age wear & a ton of it. IMO it does not appear to have been pressed aside from being squeezed by the holder itself. Correct me if I'm wrong but there's no quantifiable damage to the outside of the book . No CBC's, no soft corners, no ticks along the spine, no dents or creases. Its a beautiful book & even has a square wrap. It could have qualified for a 9.4 or a 9.6 once upon a time however the one thing we all see is discoloration galore.
  4. Unless something has drastically changed recently CGC does not factor page color into the grade they assign. The page quality may have an effect on the grade but since these are newer books that should not ding it much. Page color will be denoted on the CGC label & the market will determine what a potential buyer will give you $ wise. It factors into "eye appeal". Not being rude but for grades above 9.0 theres no 9.5 . It goes in .2 increments. (9.0/9.2/9.4/9.6/9.8/9.9/10.0) below that it in .5 increments(8.5/8.0 etc.)
  5. Another thing you could do in the future in your sales threads is state a clear window for returns to be accepted. Right up front state :2 weeks, 1 month, 3 days, etc. Regardless the boards have a generally accepted time frame for a buyer to initiate a refund. Pretty sure it is way less than a year. Something like 1/12 of that in fact. Not just unfair that the buyer would request a refund after a year but rather completely ludicrous.
  6. My eBay is : https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2334524.m570.l1313&_nkw=collectible+comics+cgc+amazingspiderman+%2350&_sacat=0&LH_TitleDesc=0&_osacat=0&_odkw=collectible+comics+cgc If there's anything else I can help you do to make the world a better place send me a message at : https://www.cgccomics.com/boards/forum/92-moderation-review-request/
  7. Well that does not change the fact that that is the price it sells for. Not seeing what would drop the book to a 2.0. Are there chunks missing from the cover? Are there tics all up and down the spine? Are there any tears? It even looks like a fairly square wrap.
  8. My opinion would be this comic sells for $500-1000 in midgrade. Although there's alot of glare looks to me that it would grade at least that. Keep in mind when you say 'not looking to sell it at this time', itcan take months for a comic to go through the cleaning & grading process. You should at least post it in the PGM section so you'll have that to reference in the future.
  9. I would completely agree that one will not get the bleeding on the inside of the book out without a chemical cleaning. That however would be more than I would do to the book & lies quite far outside the realm of restoration since its the side effect of the indentation cause by the scribbling. I have never once seen scribing or writing on a books cover to be restoration. So with just that 1 touch up itshould avoid the "writing on front cover " notation and stay blue.The bleeding would ding the grade but I'd say it's 25/75 that it would be blue label regardless. So to answer the OP it would probably be blue either way but definitely blue with it erased. The veterans here usually use this sticky to answer this question so I would defer to that :
  10. A professional comic restoration expert can use an ordinary eraser on pencil graphite. You might get blue if you left it as is. Up to the collector what they want to put into it.
  11. A professional cleaning would be unnoticeable and let you get the blue label you most likely desire.
  12. I would second this and suggest putting the detailed photos/scans in the PGM section. Kill 2 birds with one stone so to speak. After of course reading forum guidelines.
  13. Ok I'll bite. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles # 1 &2 could be worth a ton of money depending on what printing and the condition. If they're 3rd print $60 would be about right however. No idea about theothers. If you want more information you are going to have to put up some scans &/or detailed pictures of the front & back inside covers of these books. There are plenty of people here that know far more than I & could tell you at a glance but you will have to put in some work. It will be worth your while.
  14. Yep. Wanted to say something to this effect. Haven't there been lots of posts about cracked books subbed for sigs coming back lower? In some instances much lower then .2 points if I recall. CGC says...?
  15. I doubt he would get the message. I my years I have never seen him post here. I would not want this to come across as a personal attack on him or his business.
