    MMC 27 9.6 Single Highest

    Not that anybody cares, but this book used to belong to another nice Timely collector guy named Dan Bennett. He sold it to John Verzyl and I got it from him.

    1st of all, I never said Ritter or anyone did anything wrong, I just made an observation. A guy who absolutely loves to up grade his books? Realy? Um, you don't know me as well as you think you do. 99% of the books on my collection were not pressed, at least not by me or by my instruction to do so. I think the last time I had a book in my collection pressed was in 2009 or so. Poking my head in? Yes, I hope that freedom is still allowed! I know you occasionally like to do some head poking of your own.

    That was my 9.4 copy. Looks like the spine defects got moved to the back. https://comics.ha.com/itm/golden-age-1938-1955-/marvel-mystery-comics-27-timely-1942-cgc-nm-94-cream-to-off-white-pages/a/7192-92129.s?ic4=OtherResults-SampleItem-Thumbnail-022817&tab=ArchiveSearchResults-012417
  4. Back in January 1996 I wrote a "history making checklist" on Hitler covers for the ComicBook Marketplace (issue #31) . I made a few errors on that list and have found several more since then. I am covering the years from 1954 and earlier. Am I missing any covers that you know of that are not on my list below? So far I have found 82 covers. Let me know if I missed any or if you have anything else to add, thanks!

    Spidey super stories OA advice requested

    These would probably do well on comiclink. Is there only 2?
  7. I'm hoping once you see this thread more of you will show the Timely's you have tucked away in your collections. Alex Schomburg is my favorite artist, so I'll start out this thread with one of his best works. Timely.
  8. I've got 7 N64 games & 1 Sega Genesis game to sell, all of which I bought new. Actually, the N64 Star Wars game I never opened, still factory sealed!

    This is that one-off "What if Hitler was a cow poacher?" issue!

    Especially over the last 2 decades...

    Heritage Feb 2019 Auction

    To varying degrees, 99% of them do, whether on the cover, back cover or page edges. But, I will say some only have a few spots of foxing while some are quite excessive.

    Heritage Feb 2019 Auction

    Out of the 1000 or so Larson Copies, only a few have graded higher than 9.2. While I agree many are lower grade due to handling defects, most IMO are not in the 9.4+ range due to the conditions they were exposed to, regardless of other additional handling defects they incurred.
  16. I'd ask them to split it into 2 lots, or simply take the color guide back if it is of minimal value.

    Stolen comics

    With only 3 books, Cap #1, AA #16 & MC #1, Verzyl could be ranked #1 with over 6,000,000 points. Now, add in the other 10,000+ books in the collection... you get the idea!

    Heritage Feb 2019 Auction

    99% of the Larson Copies have rust, foxing & other moisture damage. They were kept in a barn for a few decades after all! If you cannot accept those flaws, then Larson's are probably not the pedigree for you.
  19. This 8.5 Highest Graded Copy is for sale in the next Heritage... along with many more Caps & Marvel Mystery's! https://comics.ha.com/itm/golden-age-1938-1955-/captain-america-comics-26-timely-1943-cgc-vf-85-off-white-pages/p/7204-13022.s?ic4=ListView-Thumbnail-071515
