These are the full length folds from when they were mailed out. They must not have totally flattened them though because there is not a color breaking crease. These are mostly DC's from the early 60's. I was (attempting) to help a buddy grade a collection he bought, and the guy he bought them from told him he got them in the mail folded. Some of them look pretty nice except for the wave in the middle from where they where folded. We weren't sure how much to grade them down so we were just calling them VG whenever we came across one.
This same guy bought almost all of these books off the rack and they are marked with a letter b in ink. I am thinking this was something the store did. Is this a big ding on the books? Once again they are very nice books for the most part other than the B.
One more question! What is a good cut off point for CGC'ing silver age books for resale? Do you say cut it off at a book of 500 dollars in value or just cgc keys?

I tend to agree...a sub crease = VG. Breaks your heart sometimes to see really nice books but they were mailed folded in half in the day. Most of these look very good slabbed as you can hardly see some of the creases. Bought a Hulk 181 once that was graded 4.0 which looked like a VF...cracked it out and the book was very floppy and almost folded in half by itself.

I was posting here when you were in diapers.
If that's the case, if anyone has an ASM 1 that would grade around a 8.0 but has a subscription crease, feel free to offer it to me for sale. I don't mind the creases
Always looking for John Broome/Gardner Fox manuscripts from the silver age "Flash" comic (Infantino used these to pencil the series). Also always interested in Jim Valentino art from "Guardians of the Galaxy"
