Wow, after reading these comments, I HAD to login and comment! Wow, you guys really don't know what a Marvel Value Stamp is? You guys need to quit buying the latest drivel and get out there and read a lot more! These were in nearly ALL the Marvel comics through the mid 70s and if you're buying stuff from the 80s or 90s as collectors, quit wasting your time. The stories and the art from these books FAR outstrip the stuff you have been picking up. Get on the stick and learn why Marvel was once considered great. Then dare I say try taking a look at the 60s too? You won't regret it for a second and you'll absolutely forget the 80s, the 90s and the 00's ever even happened! Long live the King Jack Kirby!

Also, the CGC "GUARANTEES" they've gone over the comic. Hence the G. They aren't going to lie if there's a Value stamp missing, they will grade it lower accordingly. Sheesh!

To each his own. That's my motto.

Not having the stamp is pretty significant, if sent to CGC it would come back qualified. I would return a book with the stamp cut out or at least ask for a partial refund, depends upon how much you paid I suppose. The stamps are kind of their own category when it comes to grading, personally I grade a book FR if part of the story is missing and GD if it just affects an ad page (CCL doesn't allow qualified grades). They started at the tail end of the 20 centers & ran through the 25 centers. Not all books have them.

I had a Hulk 181 that was a qualified 8.0 with the stamp cut out, still got decent money for it, $320 a couple years ago, I think that was about half guide.

Lol

I can think of a dozen or so instances where people have unslabbed books only to find major errors in the CGC grading, including restoration. Anyone can guarantee anything if they dont actually have a guarantee,lol.

As to the Marvel Stamp I would ask for refund!

Wow, learn something new everyday! I've been collecting for over 20 years and never new about that. Well, at least I don't remember hearing that! I may have heard about it and then completely forgotten. Silly

That would really irk me, if I spent a large sum of money on a book and found 1/4 of a page was missing!!

Wow. Condescending, bossy, AND informative. That's one way to teach newer collector's about the history of Marvel Comics.


A 3.0 Hulk #181 with a Green Label sold for $92 5 years ago. A 9.6 GL sold for $950 last year.
If all one cares about is owning the book, it's the affordable way to get one.

I accidentally sold a comic with the stamp missing one time and now I make sure to double check every time. It's an easy thing to miss, you have to be looking for it.

As far as CGC goes, I was under the impression that several people grade each book and they take the average. Is that right? If so, then you'd think one of them would notice a missing stamp.
Quality. Consistency. Variety. Reliable. Fair. Friendly

Yes, they would. It's one of the things they look for in books from that era.
I don't believe it was stated that the book in question was third party graded, just that it was sold to the original poster with the missing stamp undisclosed by the seller. Which is a big no-no if they knew.Shame on You
