Don't Signature Service books get higher registry points ? Is a Stan Lee signed book really rare anymore ?


I thought I saw a DC book Stan signed last year. He must have thought Solomon Grundy was the Grey Hulk!

I think a silver age book that Stan actually wrote being signed by him is still neat, but not rare. I have one myself (Spectacular Spider-Man #1 from 1968). What I don't understand is getting Stan to sign a modern or copper age book that he didn't even work on. \(shrug\)

Not to open the flood gates of hate, but I don't think Sig Series books should get more registry points anyway as sigs do not change the structural integrity of the book (unless the person signing it does not handle it properly and damages it). A 9.4 SS is still just a 9.4 book. I won't say anymore as there are already several threads on the boards dedicated to this topic already. Just my opinion.

Page Quality of the book can also change while the book is in the slab. I have had books that went down in page quality upon resubmission.

And so can the grade. How does that matter. The discussion is should the Registry recognize higher Page Quality with more points.

Both grade and PQ can change on a resub, which reflects the inherent subjectivity of grading. But when a book is in the slab it is what it is. And a 9.4 with white pages has more desirability to many collectors than the same 9.4 with OW or CR-OW pages, and it will cost more, so the registry should reflect that.

Don't forget about added points for pedigrees!

Though I would like to see that happen, I don't think it will. For starters it would be more difficult to implement. All peds are not created equal. I would hate to see a Mohawk Valley get the same ped bump as a Mile High Church copy.

Bagofleas made a great comment on another journal- CGC has never kept track of Page Quality (or Pedigrees) so assigning point value based on that would be difficult. Better that they focus on easily fixed flaws in the current system.

Any time a book is listed in the registry it shows the PQ in the issue listing. If you used a multiplier like I suggested CGC wouldn't have to track anything. A book would get a base value like it does now, and then the PQ multiplier would be applied to that. One more instruction in the code would accomplish it easily.

I don't know that it makes a difference, but while page quality and pedigrees are listed on the registry, they're not listed on the census. If adding points for page quality is as simple as you say though, I'm all for it! \:\)
