Captain Britain 8

From the UK

Just got myself this very cool UK comic. It's big and paper and it's from 1976. Features the first appearance of Elizabeth "Betsy" Braddock, who later becomes Psylocke. I've decided I'm gonna ship this one off to CGC for grading. Really hard to tell how to grade this. It looks quite nice, but I'm going try and be hard on myself... I'm guessing the pages will be off-white and it grades 8.5 - This is my "posted" guess at a grade, so we'll see how i do. I'm probably way off and it returns a 6 or 7 or something....

While I'm at it, plan to include a couple modern comics - new avengers 17 variant w/ ms marvel in the X-Men #101 pose - I jsut love this re-invent of a classic cover - And I've got a campbell variant for X-Men 205 Messiah (1st Hope Summers) - i bought it with a seller convinced it's a 9.8 - What are my odds it comes back 9.6 or 9.4... 2 in 10?

and lastly... I was pretty skeptical about the AVX, but I'm totally in! I love the premise!
