Very strong eye appeal for the grade with no real glaring defects. Just accumulative defects resulting in the CGC 8.0 grade. Book is well centred, back cover is clean and free of markings. The CGC scan does make the book look a little darker but the book presents well and bright in hand. Thought this had a shot at 8.5 when I submitted it. These have been selling well (as witnessed here on the boards), have been trending upwards from $2100-$2550 over the past 2 years and I recently sold a copy privately for $2500. Asking $2350 for this one.
