If you think it will be worth it, depending on the price you'd fetch for it, you could always re-submit it. Maybe one day you'd like to add signatures or something (Cary Nord or VDitti or both), then you could have CGC crack it (at a Con), get your sigs, then ensure that it gets pressed prior to slabbing!

Then again, I am more of a gambler when it comes to that kind of thing.

I got this back from CGC today... It looks Awsome... But the grade is pretty low... Graders notes said "light bends to cover" and " indent lower right cover"... I will crack and press if I ever get a chance to have signed.

The top says "Manufactered with cover printed off-register"

This isn't a registration issue; it's a trimming issue. I found an issue of Imperium that was similar to this, but the trimming issue was left to right rather than top to bottom. Didn't bother picking it up though.

What does "registration issue" mean? I understand that "cutting error"means it was cut wrong.

I thought the bar at the top showing a PDF file looked cool and showed the use of computer files in making the book. That's why I stabbed it. I also thought it may have been a computer error causing the cover to be off center... But Greg explained differently (miscut).

That's kinda crazy... The whole cover was shifted before stapling.

Typically printing is done with 4 colors; Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black. A registration error is when the one of those separations is offset from the others.

Yes, you are correct. There doesn't seem to be anything off with the colors (I have compared it to a normal issue of X-O #29). Strictly seems that the cover shifted down about 1/4 inch before being cut.
