    Great ish, one I still need! Mom also disapproved of my budding interest in ECs, but not enough to tear any of them up!

    I imagine Harvey did it with their permission/blessing.

    Beautiful books and backdrop as always, Gabe!

    Well, to each their own; #2 is definitely my favorite of the whole run of GHOST (though all are excellent covers.) You can't ask for better cheesecake since Phantom Lady #17, in my opinion!

    Not only a great and (now) more appreciated cover, but geez, that one's in nice shape.

    This book was part of a trade I did for dupes I had of lower-grade GA, years ago.

    Heritage May auction

    I would agree, the Sunday auctions of the past, I was able to pick up a few things still pleased to have in my collection; ever since they moved to a different system for bidding (no more ending at a particular time) it's prevented me from getting even one win. Such is life.

    Please post it on the recent PCH thread! I would agree that seems like a fine deal in the current PCH market. Here's mine:

    Great cover, indeed! I'm still in awe at some of the recent PCH results that comics4less had on eBay. Time to admire again, some of the books I'm glad I got long ago!

    Action Comics #1 CGC 8.5 for Sale On ComicConnect

    Congrats to whomever the new owner is! I would love that book and the rusty staples wouldn't bother me a bit, in this case.

    Heritage BP increasing

    It's no mistake to call them the machine, because that's what they are. Entirely up to you whether to bid or not with them. The ultimate price paid is fully within the bidder's control. Just gotta do math.

    I agree with the fact that a GFC kind of reduces the appeal of an otherwise very cherry EC slightly, just because the GFC's are so perfect, the grades of other very nice books can't help but suffer in comparison. In the case of a non-GFC that was truly every bit as nice as a given GFC, it becomes slightly less special if there are 10-ish GFC's like it out there. Good thing I love my EC's no matter what!

    Love EC Romance -- need to add more when I can find something suitable. Few and far between!

    Agreed on the need for Crypt 17! If strictly discussing value, Haunt 15(1) is also worthy of notice.
