Preacher #1 - 1st Appearance of Jesse Custer - Grading Opinion Fine/Very Fine
All “raw” back issue comics come housed in a E. Gerber Mylite 4 (heavy duty 4 mil Mylar bag) with a E. Gerber “Full Back” board. This is the “Golden Standard” for preserving comic books that have yet to be encapsulated by CGC /CBCS.
Mainstream Comics uses a very conservative three tier grading system for our “raw” back issue comics.
Very Fine / Near Mint (our grading opinion is this book would grade between 9.0 and above)
Fine / Very Fine (our grading opinion is this book would grade between 7.0 and up but not 9.0)
Very Good / Fine (our grading opinion is this book would grade between 5.0 and up but not 7.0)
We do not offer “raw” back issue comics that in our opinion would grade below Very Good /Fine.
Even with our simplified conservative grading system our “opinion” of the grade of a “raw” book may be different then yours. We include high quality photography for each book we offer, but if you desire a specific grade for any book you must purchase a CGC / CBCS Graded book. We do not guarantee that any “raw” book will return from a grading company with the grade you want.
