CGC did say that having the book dry-cleaned and pressed would increase the grade a lot but I cant afford to do that right now.. Signed by Stan Lee and he is 94 years old and retiring from signing any more books...Keep in mind that the Flash from the camera may be reflecting off the cover. The book is stunning and the cover amazingly clean and crisp given its over 50+ years old old it is and you can see the flaws from the photo I posted of it but its still in decent shape considering. The case is flawless, having remained in the plastic sleeve I received it back when I got it so many years ago, and this issue introduced the world to the X-Men for the first time in a lower print run. Finding this book (Published over 50+ years ago in of 1963) in this condition with NO restoration is tough, finding it in this grade for this price is nearly impossible. Not posting it here because I'm in the photo and the video is too large to upload.
The over all book is amazing and minimal marvel chipping with moister as seen in the photo of the cover. It holds a high value. CGC warned me to not take the book out of the plastic bag as the spine and staples of these books are very fragile and could disconnect so handle with care. There are stains and water like crinkles as seen from the photos.
Some soot dust that can be wiped off as well as seen in the photos as well. FYI: All sales are final.
