Hey all,

I mostly deal in vintage cards, but have been getting into comics as of late. 

I've never submitted a book for grading before so I'd appreciate any advice on the grading process and how I should move forward.

And, of course, what do we think this will grade?

IMO with a book of this significance you definitely want to get it graded regardless of the condition. To me, this looks like a 1.5 or 1.8 at present. But since it is FF1, it might be preferable to have a professional do cleaning and restoration. Even with a qualified grade, it would command a healthy price. I'd definitely give you a crisp $10 bill in its current condition 🙂

I’d say 2.0 or 2.5 based on the cover alone. Would be good to see what condition the internal pages and staples are in, if you fancy updating your post with some extra pics.

A clean and press would definitely be of benefit.

A 1.8 to 2.0, with a maybe a gentle press from someone very experienced - mostly to keep those edge pieces from folding over, etc.  a press will likely make it look a bit nicer in a slab, but it won’t likely affect the grade in this case.  Awesome book!  A grail that kept getting away, and now it’s too expensive for me these days.
