Re: Pressing a Solar 10 or other Card Stock Covers

Embossed covers are definitely pressable BTW, CCS just doesn't want to take the time and effort to do it at their cut rates. It can be done with proper care and would probably take multiple pressings to see results on the card stock. As long as there is no color breaks or scratches on that black cov...

Congrats on that sale. :clap: At prices like that I should look at seller mine.
Yeah, I still have another copy in 9.8 and I'm thinking "Why am I bothering to hold on at these prices?"

Re: Valiant Nintendo books all CGC

Good luck with the sale. I'll be watching it with keen interest. I have half the Valiant Nintendo books in CGC 9.8 but at current prices I'll never finish as I was mostly putting it together as part of trying to have all Valiant books in CGC 9.8 as opposed to having a massive love of Nintendo (alth...

Re: Odinn's Eye

This is a great looking book and was highly anticipated by myself.... but I really didn't really care for the story much. There was probably some artistic allegory that went over my head because I'm not really sure what I was reading. :lol:

Other Bad Idea releases have been way better IMO.

Re: Proliferation of CBCS Slabs

I have not submitted to CBCS yet but have submitted many hundreds to CGC. I also own MANY slabs (thousands) and they are 99% CGC. One service that intrigues me about CBCS that I'll eventually take advantage of is Signature verification though I wonder if its really worth the money. I have some Spide...

Re: Pressing for a X-O Manowar 2017 Book

Heavy stock and card stock covers can be pressed of minor imperfections but will likely require multiple pressing sessions. I recently pressed a few dozen Valiant Nintendo games from the early 90s and most books needed 2-6 times in the press to get rid of even minor flaws.
