Aloha CHUniverse, Alana here, and welcome to my second PGX unboxing. I was happy with my first 20 books sent to PGX so I sent another 20. Just like last time there’s good and bad, let’s see how I did.
Superman/Batman #8 SDCC Turner Virgin Variant.
I love this cover and I love all Turner Supergirl. I took a hint from my first attempt with PGX and sent a lot of store variants this time because they all came back last time as 9.8s.
Avenging Spider-Man #9 Double Signed.
This should be a 9.8. Looks like another back cover killed it with a small crease. Looks pressable, I asked all my books to be scanned for pressing looks like this slipped through the cracks. 😵 Regardless paid $9 free shipping on it.
Alias #1 Signed.
Just like the book above this should be a 9.8 so more back cover BS. This is one of those stupid overpriced Dynamic Forces Signed books. Shame on you DF for giving damaged books. Bought on eBay before season 1 for $28. Have another 9.8 candidate to send of this book.
Marvel Premiere #15
This sucks was never advertised as missing value stamp when I purchased it. Was about 7 years ago I didn’t pay much for it like $25, but still a little heartbreaking. I was thinking 8.0 complete.
This one really sucks! It was advertised as having its value stamp when I bought it about 7 years ago. It was so beat I sent it for grading to preserve what’s left was hoping for 1.5-2.0 complete. Paid $100 for it so still didn’t do too bad, but maybe I’ll upgrade my copy in the future.
Fantastic Four #52
Happy with a 4.0 on this paid $12 in auction about 7 years ago. I should of only been buying this book back then I would of been rich today.
Edge of Venomverse #1 Natali Sanders Signed
Most beautiful cover ever definitely needs to be encased and put on the wall!
Edge of Venomverse #1 Greg Horn
Going to notice a theme with all these E of V #1 9.8s. These are all going on the same shelf displayed in the open. Would be very sad for these to sit in boxes never to see the light of day.
Edge of Venomverse #1 Greg Horn
My favorite of the Horn renditions of Gwenom.
Edge of Venomverse #1 Greg Horn SDCC
Cha Ching 9.8 3 cover virgin set!
Edge of Venomverse #1 Mattina 1:50
And the cherry on top.
Iron Man #55
This is a win for me. I bought it advertised as a 2.5 for $165 came back 4.5 winner winner chicken dinner.
Star Wars #1
Was hoping 9.0-9.2, nope but still great considering I paid $10 in 2010 for it.
Luke Cage Hero for Hire #1
Was hoping for a 7.0 was close. Paid $30 a few years ago. You can tell I binged Defenders before packing this order up, I sent all my Defenders firsts off minus my Daredevil #1 because it hole punched.
Tales of Suspense #57
This came back as a nice surprise. Picked this up in a live auction with a stack of other old books including 1st Mr. Freeze for $40 back when there was a live auction house here.
Boo! I thought this was a 9.8- 9.9 with how sharp all the corners were. I guess the back cover has some tanning or staining Boo!! Paid $40 at the LCS when they first opened a couple years back.
Amazing Spider-Man #569 1:10 Variant
Should be a 9.8 no reason that it’s not. Dear PGX, I don’t think the comic market would come crashing down if you gave this a 9.8 instead of a 9.6. You did the same thing to me last order with my Gwenpool Howard the Duck variant.
Edge of Spiderverse #2
My copy I felt was perfect, came back that way. I know you love it Poyo ❤️
Wonder Woman #26 SDCC Foil Variant.
Happy to get a 9.8 it has some of those imperfections that people say are reflections, they are not they are creases that you can only see when viewing from one direction. Going to send off my other Wonder Woman foil from NYCC Anthony got me it’s absolutely flawless (because Anthony does rock).
All New Wolverine #2 1:25 Variant
Kinda mad they didn’t put fist Gabby on the label. Paid $40 for this because Mel talked up Gabby one day.
Happy and sad all at the same time, I love the anticipation of unboxing freshly graded books. I ask that you please share your grading service experiences for Anthony to post. I would love to see what other people are sending for encasing and grades they are receiving back. I can’t be the only one doing Show and Tell.
