To slab or not to slab!
(Coral Springs, Florida)
I think that slabbed books show a much better return than "raw" books. So many raw books are overgraded or retouched that it is very difficult to spend your hard earned cash on them. There are some very honest sellers of raw books but they are few and far between. But with a slabbed book, you know what you are getting and that's a good thing! True it's expensive. But it's worth the expense. Remember, not every book is a candidate for slabbing. With me, I will slab only Golden or Silver Age books, mainly "key" books and ones like Hulk #181. It's a great hobby! It can be a great business too! Just spend your hard earned cash wisely!
