Of course you know that since 1970, the name Overstreet has come to symbolize a vast array of intricate knowledge about American comic books, but did you know that you can own an original, uncirculated copy of the pioneering work on comic book grading?
Published in 1994, this book was the first real attempt to standardize the process of comic book grading! It predates CGC and independent, third-party grading (and the now-industry-standard 10-point grading scale) by almost a decade!
Authors Robert M. Overstreet and Gary M. Carter detail the original 100-point grading system, as well as the ins and outs and controversial issues of grading comic books.
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!
