The Comic Book Listings Blog: I Found this Beautiful Marvel Silver Age Comic "The Avengers No.1" at auction on ebay and just Had to blog it.
Seller says it has White Pages, and if the pic is of the actual comic, it has one of the Brightest covers I have ever seen.
Seller's Description: (Partial)
This listing is for an Avengers #1 in VFN- to VFN condition with white pages and the brightest cover colors I've ever seen on this issue due to incredibly preserved paper quality.
The comic is glossy, clean, complete, and has no tape, repairs, or restoration of any kind.
THE BEST & ONLY TOTAL PURCHASE PROTECTION, RAW COMIC RESTORATION GUARANTEE ON EBAY: If this comic is submitted to CGC or PGX and is returned either restored, repaired, trimmed, or qualified (a purple or green label), a full refund of auction price plus postage, the grading fee, and all postage incurred to send to and from grading, plus the postage to send it back for a refund will be reimbursed upon return to me.
This comic is numerically graded by me using the published Overstreet guidelines. The grade assessed is not a CGC grade, a guarantee or implication of CGC grade. It is my opinion of what the comic should grade at CGC, but not a guarantee of what it will grade.
A specific numerical CGC grade cannot be guaranteed because CGC themselves do not guarantee grades, and there are no published CGC grading guidelines.
This is made evident by the thousands upon thousands of CGC graded comics that have graded differently when resubmitted a second time, one extreme case being a comic that once CGC Universal graded 4.0 eventually being given a 9.0 Universal grade by CGC, the same company that graded it 4.0 in the past!
What exactly does CGC guarantee?
I quote from the CGC label itself: "CGC guarantees this comic book to be genuine and be inspected by a minimum of three graders. The assigned grade represents our opinion, as grading is subjective."
As my regular buyers well know, on a whole, my comics do very well at CGC. Some grade slightly higher than the grades I list them at, an equal number grade slightly lower, and the majority grade the same, most notably of late an AS #129 that I listed at NM/MT that was graded 9.8 by CGC, an AS #9 I listed as NM/NM+ (meaning a high end 9.4, but not quite a solid 9.6) that was CGC graded 9.4, an AS #37 that I Iisted as 9.2, I was given a negative on by the buyer for "overgrading", yet 2 months later was graded CGC 9.4 for the second chance buyer, and many, many others.
***Also, recently a restored raw AF 15 auctioned at $16,950 that graded CGC 9.4 (sl) for the buyer!***
In other words, there is an averaging out when it comes to the subjective art of grading, even among the best.
