WHAT'S THIS ABOUT?
Welcome! Sellmycomicbooks.com would like to thank you for your interest in this unique course, A Video Course on Grading Comic Book Scans.
We are very excited to offer this essential lesson plan.
From feedback sent in by students of our other training materials, we know that it will help all those who watch it to have a more satisfying eBay comic book buying experience, and hopefully make bucketloads of extra money!
Before we dive into the material (we know you are dying to), we need to be clear on one thing...
You will NOT learn how to grade comic books.
That's right. We can't teach you to grade comic books with any number of videos.
Regardless of what anyone tells you, you can only grade a comic book when it is in your hand out of the bag.
This skill can only be developed from experience, and by handling hundreds of comic books, so you can compare faults from one to another.
What this video series will do is eliminate some of the risk in buying comic books on eBay.
In other words, we will teach you to grade comic book scans. But I want to emphasize "some of the risk".
We at sellmycomicbooks.com have a combined 30 years' experience in the vintage comic book industry and we still, on rare occasion, buy books on eBay expecting a 9.4 and receive an 8.0.
The harsh reality is that if you want to guarantee a book will be a specific grade, then you need to shell out the cash for an expensive CGC or CBCS certified book.
The good news is, once you master the techniques in the video course, the books you buy will start to meet (and often even exceed) your grade expectations.
You will then be able to save hundreds, if not thousands of dollars, by buying raw books and certifying them yourself.
What You WILL Get From the Course!
Now I'm sure you are asking yourself, "What WILL I get from the course, then?"
- You will discover the difference between a 2.0, 4.0, 6.0, 8.0, 9.0, and even 9.8 NM/MT (in scan form, of course).
- We will show you how to spot obvious and 'hidden' defects, and how they translate to a probable grade.
- You will find out about how to mark down for printer's creases, distributor overspray, foxing, what a detached cover means to a grade, how to read the faults in a super-low grade key issue, how to compare the book you're assessing with known high-grade examples, and loads more tips and tricks.
- You'll get bonus money-making and money-saving hints, and see some of the bad practices that eBay traders try.
Here is a sample video showing how we teach you to grade comic books from scans.
CGC vs Overstreet Grading
Before we get on to the vids (we're almost there, we promise), we would like to take a quick moment to discuss grading standards.
You read it all the time in eBay listings: "This book is graded by Overstreet standards."
We do NOT use Overstreet standards. We grade by estimated CGC standards.
I say "estimated," because CGC does not publish their standards, but we have handled and submitted tens of thousands of CGC graded books.
From this experience, we can predict a book's CGC grade with staggering accuracy when we have one in our hands, and with tremendous success rate from scans.
Whether you like CGC or not, they have changed the hobby forever, and it is in our option that this change has been for the better.
When we buy books we plan on certifying them, so we estimate CGC grades before buying.
That is the PRIMARY skill you will take away from this course:
The ability to predict what grade CGC will assign to a book you're looking at on eBay or another online site.
