  1. Ha ha. Good one!
  2. Thanks. I'm the only person on the entire planet with these 5 books. Over the past 8 years I've sold all my other ashcans - but not these.
  3. Bob Overstreet Alan Light Steve Geppi Stephen Fishler Don & Maggie Bob is Numero Uno because without him only D&M would still be on this list.
  4. The response I use to let people know that what they have isn't worth anything goes like this. "Everything has value, but not everything is valuable. If a dealer had your small stack of books at a swap meet or convention he would probably ask $1.00 each. That's value - but at one dollar it's not valuable. And because it sells for a dollar, a dealer would not be interested at any price. Now you know that your comics have no value. That information in itself is VERY valuable. You can recycle them knowing you're not throwing out a million dollars." People get this.
  5. Steranko in Chicago Hi Everyone, in case you didn't know, Jim Steranko will be the Guest of Honor at the Windy City Pulp and Paper Convention April 21-23, 2017 at the Westin Lombard Yorktown Center. He'll be giving a talk Saturday night. If you're in town for C2E2 you may want to take a drive out to Lombard to catch Steranko Saturday night.
  6. I don't see how the $57K copy can be upgraded. It was pressed by CCS. Unless the back cover can be bleached in some new manner that can remove the tide lines, and some new paper added to the small abrasion, all in a manner that's undetectable, this book is maxed out. Now, could it be cracked and resubbed and get a 6.0 because on that day the graders looked at the beautiful FC and said to themselves, "9.0 FC+ 3.0 BC = 6.0. Yes, that's possible.
  7. An 8.0 just sold for $825 on ComicConnect. That sounds reasonable to me.
  8. Yes, but I don't believe it would have sold for more if it had white pages. The collectors who wanted this book wanted it for the front cover.
  9. I agree regarding PQ. The $57K 5.0 had c/ow pages...
  10. Always so much fun to see someone score like this. Congrats!
  11. I told the owners of the 8.0 FF 1 that I thought it would sell for $30,000-$35,000. I was very pleased with the $35K.
  12. Prior to all the craziness of the past few months I would have thought $50,000 or so. Now $65,000? Things are just so volatile it's hard to say.
