  1. Wormboy... I was just looking at the checklist uncut sheet images again and I realized it might be the checklist cards for the second test issue with the Topps 1975 / Marvel 1975 copyrights! I think there is a test commodity code of “T-47-3” or maybe “T-47-4” on the right side of the checklist side of the sheet! Better images would really be helpful or if you can confirm the copyright info and the code info. Thanks Federico
  2. Hello everybody!!! These are my two little boys... I bought them back in 2006 for amounts that back then looked very high... Giant Size X-Men #1 - CGC 9.4 $1800 X-Men #94 CGC 9.2 $1095 but if I look at GSX1 CGC 9.4 nowadays prices after all they have been a good investment...:
  3. Here I am again.... As you may have noticed in my first reply, I am looking for some very rare variations: 1974 Test Issue #1 Checklist 9-card SET released for the 1975 22-sticker test issue #1 tan back without character names SET 1975/1975 44-sticker tan back Test Issue #2 SET 1975/1975 Checklist 9-card SET released for the 1975/1975 44-sticker tan back Test Issue #2 SET I have posted some pics that show these variations below... I took the following pictures from this very interesting site: http://www.bubblegumcards.org/Topps Super Heroes/CBHeroes.html http://www.bubblegumcards.org/Topps Super Heroes/Marvel.html
  4. Thanks!!! it took me 20 years to build it ... you never find a 100% complete 1* or 2* collection... and the variant stickers are unknown to most people. It's also hard to find stickers without dents or other problems. I bought the super rare sample set (22 stickers with tan back and no char names) 20 years ago...but after that I never saw a similar set appear again for sale. So my collection was built with EXTREME PATIENCE... Acetate stickers are a recent discovery made by my friend Joe Nocera. They are made of transparent/acetate material that looks 3dmensional. SGC has recently accepted to consider them a sample printing by Topps. Nobody seems to own a compete set....I own 23 different only. No I don't have any shippers. Yes "Which way to the John exists" in both 1* and 2** Best regards Federico
  5. Hello everybody! I noticed this interesting thread only today... I own a quite complete 1975 and 1976 Marvel sticker collection. These sets are among the best Marvel collectibles ever made!! In the first posts I noticed that wormboy cited copyright/trademark variants and caption variants in 1975 and 1976 stickers. To be precise in 1975 set there are 4x copyright/trademark variants: Hulk-1 (Vertical copyright at same position of “A” of USA of horizontal) Kazar (Copyright on one line) Submariner (upside down Copyright) Thor-1 (upside down Copyright) There is a Dr. Doom Variant with Vertical copyright on the right side, but exclusive to 1975/1975 Test Issue #2 SET and 2 caption variants (only for white backs): Spider-Man-2 “Bug Off” Captain Marvel “Which way to the John” in 1976 set there are 6x caption variants, but no copyright/trademark variant: Conan - "Shall we dance?" Hercules - "Look, I Have a Hang-Nail!" Loki - "Who says I'm bull-headed?" Luke Cage - "Two All Beef Patties Please!" The Hulk - "Help cure athlete's feet!" Volstagg - "Fat is beautiful!"

  6. sorry BUT ... I can barely find few of my older journals.... all the other ones seem lost. Only these are present... missing the other 28!! so?
  7. ...once again no 9.9 HI Guys! I have been away for a while Mego World Greatest Superheroes are my new passion so CGC books have lost the top priority in my collection...but despite of this I keep on submitting books... I have just received 60 graded comics (mostly early copper age) I had shipped to CGC in February 2016. 39 working days to get the awaited "graded" status is a VERY LONG TIME in my opinion. Honestly, after 38 submissions, I need to say that this long waiting really demotivates me a lot. I think that 15-20 working days should be the maximum acceptable amount of time. These books were selected during 2015 and most of them came back in 9.4 (the minimum grade I usually accept for post 1980 books) or better... 2x 8.5 3x 9.0 9x9.2 13x9.4 17x9.6 16x9.8 ...with the gem being a complete DD 227-233 (Nocenti Miller) run...that resulted in an almost complete set in 9.6-9.8 (weirdly 227 came out in 8.5 ) Unfortunately after 38 submissions to CGC for a total of 880 books I still haven't received a single 9.9 TITLE ISSUE FORECAST CGC Amazing Spider-Man 255 9.4-9.6 // 9.6 Amazing Spider-Man 343 9.6-9.8 // 9.4 Avengers 299 9.6-9.8 // 9.6 Avengers 300 9.6-9.8 // 9.4 Cloak & Dagger 4 9.6-9.8 // 9.8 Daredevil 227 9.4-9.6 // 8.5 Daredevil 228 9.4-9.6 // 9.6 Daredevil 229 9.4-9.6 // 9.6 Daredevil 230 9.4-9.6 // 9.6 Daredevil 231 9.4-9.6 // 9.8 Daredevil 232 9.4-9.6 // 9.8 Daredevil 233 9.4-9.6 // 9.6 Elektra Assassin 3 9.4-9.6 // 9.2 Excalibur 1 9.6-9.8 // 9.8 Excalibur 6 9.6-9.8 // 9.8 Excalibur 7 9.6-9.8 // 9.8 Fantastic Four 322 9.6-9.8 // 9.8 Fantastic Four 323 9.6-9.8 // 9.6 Fantastic Four 336 9.6-9.8 // 9.8 Hulk 369 9.6-9.8 // 9.2 Spawn 9 9.4-9.6 // 9.6 Thor 392 9.6-9.8 // 9.6 Uncanny X-Men 275 9.6-9.8 // 9.8 Uncanny X-Men 276 9.6-9.8 // 9.8 Uncanny X-Men 169 9.4-9.6 // 9.2 Uncanny X-Men 198 9.6-9.8 // 9.6 Uncanny X-Men 231 9.6-9.8 // 9.4 Uncanny X-Men 234 9.6-9.8 // 9.6 Uncanny X-Men 236 9.6-9.8 // 9.4 Uncanny X-Men 238 9.6-9.8 // 9.6 Uncanny X-Men 262 9.6-9.8 // 9.2 Uncanny X-Men 270 9.6-9.8 // 9.2 Uncanny X-Men 280 9.6-9.8 // 9.6 Uncanny X-Men 284 9.6-9.8 // 9.4 Uncanny X-Men 285 9.6-9.8 // 9.8 Uncanny X-Men 294 9.6-9.8 // 9.4 Uncanny X-Men 295 9.6-9.8 // 9.2 Uncanny X-Men 296 9.6-9.8 // 9.6 Wolverine 4 9.6-9.8 // 9.0 Wolverine 5 9.6-9.8 // 9.4 X-Factor 12 9.6-9.8 // 9.4 X-Factor 14 9.6-9.8 // 9.6 X-Factor 33 9.6-9.8 // 9.2 X-Factor 35 9.6-9.8 // 9.4 X-Factor 71 9.6-9.8 // 9.8 X-Factor 84 9.2-9.4 // 9.0 X-Factor 85 9.6-9.8 // 9.0 X-Factor 86 9.6-9.8 // 8.5 X-Factor 19 9.6-9.8 // 9.6 Uncanny X-Men 186 9.6-9.8 // 9.8 Uncanny X-Men 193 9.6-9.8 // 9.4 Uncanny X-Men 197 9.6-9.8 // 9.4 Uncanny X-Men 267 9.6-9.8 // 9.2 Uncanny X-Men 279 9.6-9.8 // 9.4 Uncanny X-Men 287 9.6-9.8 // 9.6 Uncanny X-Men 288 9.6-9.8 // 9.4 Uncanny X-Men 289 9.6-9.8 // 9.8 Uncanny X-Men 290 9.6-9.8 // 9.8 Uncanny X-Men 291 9.6-9.8 // 9.2 Wolverine 2 9.6-9.8 // 9.8 Ciao!
