Our Book Grading Process

As lifelong comic book lovers, we understand how important it is to ensure honesty is priority 1 in our business practice. We do our absolute best to inspect our comic books inside and out for any flaws or damages before determining a fair price for our customers. WE ARE, IN NO WAY, PROFESSIONAL COMIC BOOK GRADERS. However, we base the condition of all of our comic books on the immensely knowledgeable teachings from the 6th edition of The Overstreet Guide to Grading Comics by Robert M. Overstreet. This book has guided our ongoing learning process, and is one of the many resources we use to help us determine the most fair prices for all of our back-issue comics. The grades presented for our books represent our best assessment to gauge a fair and honest price for every product we offer, while helping us maintain business costs.

Grading is a subjective art form, and each grade given to a comic can and will vary from person to person. Our promise to you is that we take a close look at each comic individually, examining the covers, the centerfold and all of its pages. Our best fair estimates based on our examinations of the book’s condition are final.

We base all of our grading from the following scale:

  • 10.0 GM Gem Mint High Grade Low Grade
  • 9.9 MT Mint High Grade
  • 9.8 NM/MT Near Mint / Mint High Grade
  • 9.6 NM+ Near Mint+ High Grade
  • 9.4 NM Near Mint High Grade
  • 9.2 NM- Near Mint- High Grade
  • 9.0 VF/NM Very Fine / Near Mint Mid Grade
  • 8.5 VF+ Very Fine+ Mid Grade
  • 8.0 VF Very Fine Mid Grade
  • 7.5 VF- Very Fine- Mid Grade
  • 7.0 FN/VF Fine / Very Fine Mid Grade
  • 6.5 FN+ Fine+ Mid Grade
  • 6.0 FN Fine Mid Grade
  • 5.5 FN- Fine- Mid Grade
  • 5.0 VG/FN Very Good / Fine Low Grade
  • 4.5 VG+ Very Good+ Low Grade
  • 4.0 VG Very Good Low Grade
  • 3.5 VG- Very Good- Low Grade
  • 3.0 GD/VG Good / Very Good Low Grade

  • 1.5 FR/GD Fair / Good Low Grade
  • 1.0 FR Fair Low Grade
  • 0.5 PR Poor Low Grade

  • 0.1 INC Incomplete Low Grade

We continue to learn more of the grading techniques necessary to ensure quality and honesty within our practice, and we will always promise to maintain the highest quality of integrity when pricing our books.
