I would not buy another Cap book for six months after my CGC 1.8 Cap #72 in November of 2016 on eBay. I would actually end up selling the Cap #72 in April 2017 to a board member. Why? I just felt the grade was a tad too low being a 1.8. The next book I would pick up was a Captain America Comics #69 CGC 3.0 Canadian edition off the boards a month later in May of 2017. It was actually the board member who sold me my Cap #74 Canadian edition that notified me that this book was for sale, so now I owe him even more
I had missed out on a raw US edition of this issue on the boards maybe a year or so prior so I quickly snapped this one up!
Off white to white pages and wonderfully presenting for a 3.0. What more could one ask for? It also has an interesting maple leaf stamp on the cover. Never seen that before
The next book I bought was a complete but coverless Captain America Comics #27 off eBay in September. I had not bought a coverless Cap issue before but this was issue #27! It was one of my favorite issues and I figured I had time to wait for a cover while I continued on the rest of the collection.
I did not have to wait long as four days later someone listed a Captain America Comics #27 front cover only on eBay! Crazy! I was a bit hesitant to purchase it since it was only the front cover. What were my chances of getting just a back cover? Better just to wait for a complete front and back cover I thought, but I still pulled the trigger since it was pretty well presenting.
So now I had an almost complete copy of Cap #27! Not bad!
Now this isn't a GA Captain America Comic but while perusing the November ComicLink auction I came across a Wow Comics #38 CGC 4.0. I had never seen this cover before and it really struck me as beautiful. Quite simple in it's design with Mary Marvel soaring above the clouds with arms outstretched and a little lightning bolt off in the distance. It has become one of my favorite GA covers and I'm glad a won it.
Now to find who owns the CGC 9.2 Crowley/File Copy, even though that has cream to off-white pages and mine is off-white to white pages
My last Cap book bought in 2017 was a Captain America Comics #67 CGC 2.5 off the boards in December. It's the 2nd lowest graded copy on the census (of 30) but that's where I expect most of my books to be so it fit in perfect with my collection.
Finally I am caught up to 2018 so this this journal will soon be in real time!
