Peter was there.... *** Nevertheless, when I looked up THE STARJONGLEUR COLLECTION in the price guide, it went from STARJAMMERS right past 'Star-Jong'. So! ______ It's.. NOT there! {I exclaimed aloud!} {I was REALLY HAPPY; I figured out what stalled CGC.} {...no wonder!} These books were.. 'NOT IN GUIDE'. The ONLY places I found this title, or this press was.. on the Michigan State University database of publishers, (...nice archaic list! Thanks MSU!), ..., and at comicbookdb.com, but they just had a listing, too, ... and there were NO IMAGES.... *** Eventually, it's my user error, that keeps me from getting all the images into one 'photo' that shows the wraparound covers, of BOTH of these books. Also, you'll have to wait for CGC to ADD these as Competitive Sets, before these will be.. setting examples, 30 years on. Happy Hunting Sports Fans
