  1. Hello all, just noticed this thread. I saw a gallery near me selling this horse manure for crazy money about 18months ago. I just checked and they are now selling more at even crazier prices , have a look if you fancy a laugh: https://www.castlegalleries.com/artists/stan-lee#collection unbelievable that people pay these prices for this stuff ! WTF
  2. Unfortunately the majority of my collection was thrown away by my Nan back in the early 80's, I had all my books stacked away in a couple of suitcases in her loft (near complete runs of Amazing Spiderman and Fantastic four up to the mid 70's mainly) for years. When she decided to clear out her loft she just thought it was all clutter and binned the lot. I only found out a couple of years after the event when I went round there to pick them up and asked her where my old suitcases of comics were. Gutted beyond belief, but i couldn't bring myself to complain to her, she was such a beautiful lady so totally innocent, honest and genuine. So i have only have the remnants of my collection left , no pedigree for me ! Could do with them now though
  3. Another book that I could do with some advice on. I'm not sure how the tape on the top left of the cover will affect the grade! Is it worth sending to cgc? Thanks in advance for all your advice and insight Rye
  4. Many thanks for your help, i'll post the result when I get it back
  5. as bob surmised it's probably rust from the book it was on top of !
  6. They have all been bagged and boarded for decades, (Bags and boards changed every 2/3 years) I think this must have occurred back in the dark old days when it was actually being read/used, I think the initials on the front may actually be from my cousin! Remind me to thank him when i see him next
  7. Apologist everyone for my ignorance regarding posting limits, in my haste I forgot to check the post rules. I stopped posting as soon as I discovered my error. thanks for your help Bob Apologies rye
  8. Hi Bob, just taken a couple of pics that may help
  9. sorry bob, as i mentioned in a previous message, i was in such a rush to get things done I failed to see your messages in time. Apologies to everyone I have irritated, that was not my intention, just in a blind panic to get things in order on my side. Best regards Rye
  10. Apologies to everybody on this post, in my ignorance I blindly went hell for leather and rapidly posted too many posts. I was in such a rush I failed to even read the guidance notes at the beginning of the thread. Thank you to Bob for attempting to reign me in before I overdid it. Apologies once again for my poor etiquette. Best regards Rye
  11. Really sorry Bob, didn't realize, in such a rush to get things done I've only just started reading the replies. Once again sorry for my ignorance, and thank you for your posts
  12. Sorry guys, huge apologies, I didn't realize that there was a daily limit. Im stopping now ! Just in a real panic to get things going on my end. Thank you all for your replies. By the way the staples are all secure
  13. Hi everyone, Due to crazy happening I've finally decided that I shall have to liquidate my complete original owner (90% bought off the newstand) collection and I am debating what books are worth sending to CGC, please let me know your thoughts guys, Ive been out of the game for a decade or so, so all feedback is greatly appreciated. I'll be putting up a selection of books that I feel may justify being sent, if I've got it wrong please let me know, I can't afford to mess this decision up!!! All grade advice and guidance is invaluable to me. Also In doing my research today I have discovered something called pressing (wasn't around in my collecting heyday) so if any books look like they may benefit from this please let me know. thanks in advance guys Rye.
