  1. A Dispatch from the Department of Useless Information: Instead of going out and licking doorknobs, I decided to update this little study of the Picture Frame census. I hadn't done this since last April. Eight first-time 9.8s were graded in the past year or so. Six first-time 9.6s were graded. No first-time 9.4s were graded. Sheldon's Oakland books probably accounted for many of the new additions. Bob's Westerns probably made a nice dent too. Millie the Model is still an incredibly elusive vixen. Harvey is still in hiding. If there are any mistakes, it's a known side effect of sheltering in place. Of the 388 Picture Frame books, there are: 108 books without a 9.8 or better (was 116) 36 books without a 9.6 or better (was 42) 14 books without a 9.4 or better (was 14) 18 books with 1 9.4 or better 2 books without a 9.0 or better (was 3) 0 copies in 9.0 or better Millie the Model #197 (2 in 8.5) My Love #20 (2 in 8.0) No copies in 9.4 or better Harvey #3 (1 in 9.2) Harvey #5 (1 in 9.2) Li'l Kids #7 (2 in 9.2, 1 in 9.0) Li'l Kids #9 (1 in 9.2, 1 in 9.0) Millie the Model #194 (1 in 9.0) Millie the Model #195 (1 9.0) Millie the Model #196 (1 in 9.2, 1 9.0) Millie the Model #197 (2 in 8.5) Millie the Model #198 ((1 in 9.0) Millie the Model #199 (1 in 9.0) My Love #20 (2 in 8.0 ) Our Love Story #20 (1 in 9.2) Ringo Kid #17 (2 in 9.2, 2 in 9.0) Special Marvel Edition #4 (9 in 9.2!) 1 copy in 9.4 or better Chili #18 Chili #19 Chili #20 Harvey #6 Li'l Kids #4 Li'l Kids #5 Li'l Kids #6 Li'l Pals #2 My Love #16 My Love #18 (9.6) My Love #19 Our Love Story #17 Our Love Story #19 Rawhide Kid #103 (9.6) Ringo Kid #14 Western Gunfighters #8 Western Gunfighters #10 (9.8) 1 copy in 9.0 or better Chili #18 (9.4) Chili #19 (9.4) Chili #20 (9.4) Harvey #3 (9.2) Harvey #5 (9.2) Harvey #6 (9.4) Li'l Kids #6 (9.4) Millie the Model #199 (9.0) Rawhide Kid #103 (9.6) Toughest hero books in CGC 9.6 or better (They're all black covers except one dark blue and one dark brown) Amazing Adventures #9 (1 in 9.8, 3 in 9.6) Astonishing Tales #12 (1 in 9.8, 5 in 9.6) Avengers #103 (12 in 9.6) Avengers #105 (8 in 9.6) Captain Marvel #22 (4 in 9.6) Daredevil #86 (2 9.8, 5 in 9.6) Incredible Hulk #158 (7 in 9.6) Iron Man #44 (6 in 9.6) Sub-Mariner #43 (1 in 9.8, 7 in 9.6) X-Men #76 (6 in 9.6) X-Men #79 (2 in 9.8, 4 in 9.6) Most 9.8s (They're all white covers except the TOD #1) Amazing Spider-Man #105 – 66 Fantastic Four #121 – 53 Avengers #98 – 52 Marvel Premiere #2 – 52 Tomb of Dracula #1 – 51 Thor #202 – 50 Avengers #102 – 44 Most Submissions: Marvel Spotlight #5 – 2897 Hero For Hire #1 – 2428 Tomb of Dracula #1 – 1632 Marvel Premiere #1 - 1475 Defenders #1 - 1274
  2. True. True. True. And also, getting the PF set in registry probably played some part. Who was the insufficiently_thoughtful_person who kept bugging Gemma to create the PF set? I hate that guy.
  3. Great stuff, Bob. I'm happy the inadvertently terrible timing of the auction didn't hurt your overall sale prices. Of course, I happily contributed to your overall sales prices and I'm looking forward to that FedEx package coming from Maine in a few weeks.
  4. Helpful? Helpful! I think Paul's work is done, unless he's willing to get really specific about the shades of color. It's funny, I guess my color naming skills aren't very well honed. I look at Creatures on the Loose #20 in Bob's post and it looks brown to me.
  5. Yep, it was from the Pedigree auction. I'm glad the ow-w pages scared you away. The hammer price was pretty reasonable.
  6. Great colors. Beautiful book, Black Adam.
  7. Closed. Please PM If you're interested in anything.
