  1. Well it certainly looks the part in the scans. Any info on its history? Seems a bit brighter than my copy [which I dont think is a candidate, though I will be taking another look!].
  2. I used to own a few Baker St John romance that were supposedly Church copies, bought in a Heritage auction long back. They were by no means pristine copies, and I seem to recall a discussion some time ago on the boards in which it was suggested that when Edgar could not get copies from his newstand, he went in search of other copies. I only mention this because I wonder if poor distribution of certain 'late period' books might have been a factor, and we know that Planet #65 is/was a scarcer than average Planet. Any thoughts?
  3. My favourite Jumbo... and for some reason, one of the toughest, especially in grade.
  4. Hi grade structure, but a tiny corner off bottom right.
  5. Speaking of favorites, this was my sole win from the Nic Cage Heritage Auction so many years ago [sold and reacquired since!] There is an entire Game of Thrones in this epic cover!
  6. In reality the purple [magenta] is even deeper than the scan shows. I've never seen another FH cover quite like it.
  7. ..so what's everyone else's number one FH pick?
  8. Well, it would have to be this one, but it's the colors, not the cover, if you see what I mean.
  9. Wonderful group. My top 6 are in here somewhere, I just cant decide.
  10. It continues to surprise me that a higher grade copy has not yet surfaced after so many years. Nor is it easy to account for its relative scarcity.
  11. Undoubtedly marked down because of the page quality - but I can live with it! Flew under the radar at the time IMO. [Those were the days!]
  12. Does anyone else have any 'ex-cheetah' Planets to show?
  13. #29 is a pretty tough book - if cheetah had not sold his set some years ago I would still be looking for a high grade copy.
  14. I had the same issue but was able to sign in via The Collectors Society.
  15. Those of you who have followed the story of Roshni will be pleased to hear that with Purnabha's support they have taken the next step in their development. They asked Purnabha to help them with a funding application to IPartner India, and I'm delighted to report that the application was successful. Here's Purnabha: 'Importantly, with this funding Roshni will be able to secure its future(if the Roshni group members want to). Current funding will secure their base and provide some financial support to the group as well (If they utilize this fund properly) for their growth. This two year funding is about 20lakh for two years starting from 2019. ' 20 lakhs is approximately $28,000. https://ipartnerindia.org/about/
  16. I believe Suspense Comics #3 often has the centerfold missing. [This is a replica]
