Since 1970, the name "Overstreet" has come to symbolize a vast array of intricate knowledge about American comic books. While The Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide helps you decide what comics to look for, this original edition of The Overstreet Comic Book Grading Guide teaches you the tell-tale signs of condition that are the keys to real collectibility! If you have a comic book collection or you're thinking about starting one, you need this book!
Published in 1994, this book was the first real attempt to standarize the criteria and process of comic book grading, predating CGC third-party grading and the now-industry-standard 10-point grading scale by almost 10 years. In addition to the issues surrounding grading, this book is your key to learning the 100-point grading system!
Also included in this edition:
- Exhaustive descriptions of Primary and Split Grades!
- Over 200 Full-Color Photographs!
- Tips for evaluating comics from the 1800s to the present!
- Overstreet's OWL card pocket grading reference
- Much More!
