  1. Wonderful idea, my donation is to my fave local charity. Lot 4, lot 10
  2. This is a fantastic offering. For those of you who do not know, CGC has just started to grade posters. I think there is a lot of corollary between the rock posters of the 60s and 70s and comics of the same era. I heartily approve of this thread. Thank you for offering these items on the boards.
  3. Obviously you're a Frank Thorne fan! The Morrow and Crandall pages feature wonderful cross-hatching. Best wishes with the sale.
  4. First subscription I ever ordered. Gaines-published, no ads, the usual gang of talented artists and writers. In that form, it hasn’t really existed for years, but I somehow assumed it’d always be around. MAD probably shaped my world view, warped as it is.
  5. Take Plastic and KurtzMan. Someone help me with my addiction. I am powerless.
  6. Sgt Fury 16 for (mostly) yellow. Great cover. Solar 10 - earliest all-black cover I can think of. Same for FF 371 - all-white (embossed); 2nd print is all-red. These may be cheating a bit, though...
  7. Here’s the rest of my ill-gotten gains from Greggy’s Mystery Box. Some from the board legend himself, some from Texas, and some from an unspecified secret locale deep in the forests of Canadia.
  8. You know, Canadia. Our neighbor to the North. Home of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Dudley Do-Right, thirdgreenham, and Greggy.
  9. After eagerly awaiting my Greggy mystery box, I was finally able to hold it in my hot little hands on Saturday February 23. It came all the way from Canadia. Lo and behold, I think he loves me. This was front and center among the other chit he sent. Nice package - (the Mystery Box, not Greggy’s).
  10. I actually like this error. Although it's a true manufacturing problem, to me it is not an unattractive defect. Frankly, to me the book is more cool - certainly more rare - without both staples. Having said that, I am less enamored of those books usually are dual-stapled that were manufactured with only one staple. CGC does not grade those with a qualified label, IIRC, but they do note the single staple on the label.
  11. Take.You know where I live.😄
  12. Namor’s pose in the second panel looks un-manly. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, just an observation.
  13. Arex is a true OG Boardie, no worries about purchasing from him. Hey Arex, if you still have that 9.4 white-paged old label Cap 109 I’ll buy it back from you...
  14. CGC does note Captain America Comics #3 as Stan Lee’s first published comic book work. Parenthetically, he had apparently used the Stanley Lieber byline prior to CA3, when he won a NYC newspaper contest
  15. Wallace Wood died in the mid-1980s. He had several chronic diseases including alcohol use disorder, and was a smoker. I believe he was 54 when he died, of self-inflicted gunshot. An amazingly talented artist with distinctive style.
  16. Somebody Robbed The Glendale Train New Riders of the Purple Sage
  17. For the non-cognoscenti like I am, my prize (listed as #64 MJI) means Mark Jewelers Insert. A total of TEN Marvel Avengers, Defenders, and Team-Up books. In respect to Mr. Ditko’s passing, I am also adding the Steve Ditko Marvel Visionaries hardback mint unread and still in shrinkwrap.
  18. 2nd prize - a week in Philadephia. (Apologies to WC Fields) How could I not choose a Boards Legend? Greggy Mystery Box! As always, thanks to Holiday Ham, Holly Jolly One, and everyone else who takes the time to set up this great gift exchange.
  19. Sqeggs, that Comics #8 has amazing colors. Can’t believe it graded a 1.5...Even if a rat chewed away the rest of the book, it’s a winnah!
