  1. Oh! by Jingo, that one's a corker! In the land of San Domingo, Lived a girl called Oh! by Jingo, Ja da Ja da da da da da, ump-a, ump-a, ump-a, ump-a, From the fields and from the marshes, Came the old and young by goshes, Ja da Ja da da da da da da, ump-a, ump-a, ump-a, ump-a, They all spoke with a diff’rent lingo, But they all loved Oh by Jingo, And ev’ry night they sang in the pale moonlight.
  2. Of these early ones, #4 is my favorite. sacentaur has a stunning copy of this issue.
  3. Copies of #7 consistently seem to have fairly strong colors, so far as I have seen. The pre-Zolnerowitz covers seem to belong to a different age.
  4. 'Sneaky difficult.' Love that! I would say #6 falls into the sneaky D category as well...
  5. #16 doesn't get the love like surrounding issues, even though it is GGA ('Good God Art')
  6. Nice one, Karl. For years I thought that #32 was also a yellow cover as standard, until I happened to search for Planets on Heritage and to my amazement discovered a huge variation from one copy to another. A lot of covers don't work well when the colors are less layered, but in the case of #32, it works pretty well regardless.
  7. This cover has all of the classic ingredients and I like the yellow background. I really like the run from #17- #29.
  8. Check out the census, guys. It looks like they've been graded now.
  9. As far as I know the run is still essentially intact. What I was thinking, but thanks for the coroboration. I have wondered if we might eventually see them all in a CC auction... It would be cool. To my knowledge the run is missing a couple of books but I don't know for certain. #15

  11. My turn! Shall we start discussing trade? Busted!
  12. Here's another one of cheetah's ex's. Very misleading scan makes the book look miscut - in fact its the microchamber paper peeking out.
  13. Yes, it sure looks a lot nicer than 7.5.
  14. Nice Rangers, adam - I'd not seen that one before. I was lucky to pick up a handful of cheetah's Planets when they came up on Heritage, this one among them. Does anyone else have any of Jeff's ex-copies?
  15. Which is why I'll never complete the title! I've never had more than half the run at any given time, but I've owned almost every issue at sometime or another. (I've had at least three copies of #15 and - I think - four of #14 at various times in the past two decades). #44 is another favorite. The first time I saw Harley set up in London - it was probably around 1993 - I remember he had a deep run of high grade Planets. It was not my collecting area at the time, but for some reason this cover is the one that stuck in my memory, along with #49.
  16. And here is my #23. Not one of my favorite covers but a very strong 9.2.
  17. Nice! I have a cage book in my Planet run, #6 Great copy Jason. This is my fave Cage
  18. That #13 presents nicely. In my head, #13, #17,#18 and #19 form a rivet 'superfecta'. Here are my #18 and #19. (#18 is the Toledo copy.)
