  1. I like the registration on your so much more that mine. it looks great. I'm very happy with mine, but having yours to compare, its a no brainer - super nice book!
  2. So I sometimes save images of books that I like just as a reference or a trigger to what I might want to search to purchase in the future. I purchased this 8.5 earlier this year. I was looking thru my image file and found what looks to be the same book that was formerly residing in a 9.0 old label case. What happened? Was this book once owned by a boardie? Check out "Nancy" on the "N" and the "D" in the title. I hope I saved some $$ buying it at the 8.5 grade vs. the 9.0. Either way, I really like this Phantom. If you do know anything about what happened here, I'd be very interested in hearing it's story.

    PGM Witchcraft No. 2

    There is a 1/2" split on the bottom and a 3/4" split on the top. Between the H and C is a smudge and below that what I would describe as a tape pull, not a hole.

    I'm confused by this Conserved grade...

    Not sure what is happening with CGC as late. I saw a 4.5 blue this weekend with a hole in the cover about the size of a quarter. How it was a 4.5 is amazing. I thought I knew basic grading, but books like this "Conserved" Avengers book and many, many others have me scratching my head. Someone please explain.

    Batavia Comic Thing 2018 - Report

    I'll try to make you feel a bit better. 2 years ago, I drove 45 minutes to a John Haines show in Batavia only to find that the show had been canceled. No email, no facebook, no communication of cancellation. To top it off, I received one of his mailers about a week prior announcing the CosmicCon.

    namisgr, thanks for your input. I know nothing of pressing so I will leave well enough alone.

    I didn't have them pressed. Perhaps I should have?? I've never had any of my books pressed am I missing out?

    These FF's came back from CGC this week. I bought these books many years ago. I am slowly getting my key's graded - very happy with the grades.

FF 32 - This book was purchased already graded by the "P" company as a 8.5 and came back from CGC 7.0 FF 52 - Purchased this book from Ted at Superworld Comics in the early 2000's. Very pleased with the grade and purchase price! FF 55 - Purchased this one from a local show as a 9.0. Again, very pleased with the grade.
