Since 1970, the name "Overstreet" has symbolized a vast knowledge of American comic books. While The Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide helps you learn about comic values, this book teaches you the importance of condition (a factor that is often the key to real collectability) and how to grade accurately. The Overstreet Guide To Grading Comics includes the 10-point grading system, as well as exhaustive descriptions of Primary and Split Grades. It spotlights each grade with more than 200 full-color images in all, as well as articles on storage, preservation, and restoration, a look at the independent, third-party grading companies, and much more! Available for the first time ever in a hardcover edition!
