"Vintage" comics from Ebay Seller


So I am still new to the internet era when it comes to buy comics. Between me and you guys... I just spent about $250 on ebay beefing up my collection. Found lots of great deals and got some of the comics that I cherished as a teenager like Cable #1 and Deadpool The Circle Chase #1. I remember picking those off the store shelf! Internet buying has me a bit disapointed at the moment.

So, I made an offer on a lot of 10 "vintage" comics. The seller had 1 group pic and I could see that there was quite a bit of ware... I was thinking between fair and good (I'm on comic grader). Well, let's just say everyone's definition of "vintage" may not be the same.

Today the packages started rolling in. I got 6 packages today. The first one I open is the "Vintage" pack. Ugh.... I wanted to cry! It literally looked like someone had used this stack as a seat cushion and was constantly shifting their weight to get comfortable! (Okay, I put a little too much thought into that! lol). A few of the comics had a pretty good value of around $12. There wasn't one that was under $4. I graded most as good... had one that was a .5.

So, my question to you is... what do you think there grade could be (guesstamation). These are the 3 worst. Are they even gradable? (I know the pic isn't the best and most flaws you won't be able to see) i.e. Binding rolled, multiple creases, corners bent/torn
