    What makes you say this? Their slabs make excellent sandwich trays.

    All raw books in the thread have now sold. With that in mind i will make a one and only reduction on that very nice JIF # 12 slab. $395 shipped if anyone wants it. I certainly don't mind keeping it. Ciao. Thanks to all previous/loyal buyers, watchers, likers, lurkers etc. paul

    No. I haven't. The point is that NR are a fact, and they have been since inception, as I stated before. My point is they are not a problem unless they are in extreme. I agree the process is inconsistent, but we are dealing with plastics here and there are a multitude of factors which differ on any given day relating to temperatures, handling, integrity of materials etc. etc. If people are being so OCD about this, then they should stay away until a measure of satisfaction (for them) is attained. Like I said, you have other Companies. It's not a monopoly.

    No one puts a gun to your head to buy slabs. Keep your books raw until CGC have perfected the process to your satisfaction, or use a different company. Simple.
  8. Controversial, but I can definitely feel your POV. I remember many moons ago when I was posting the interiors to SC # 3 to the GRR, I was very disappointed at the content. OK its an awesome cover, but for me a book has to have more going for it than that. (See GRR Page 105). On the other hand SC # 8 (See GRR Page 151) has not only an arguably better cover (by the Guv'nor himself), well it certainly has great artistic merit, but the interior of the book is better just on face value. The splashes are absolutely awesome whereas SC #3 hasn't got a decent splash in sight. So I would have to agree with you...never thought about it before...and even tho' it's a moot point because I'll never own either...in a parallel universe somewhere i hope I would pick 8 over 3. Of course the argument is flawed, because it's all subjective.

    Strangely the two best raw books, condition-wise are left. Awesome covers too. They are very reasonably priced. Of course the slab is also up for grabs. Just a reminder that going forward, anyone who has bought in this thread will not pay shipping in the future, for the duration of this thread, which I hope to keep going as an occasional ongoing thread. As stated before PMs welcome with your potential interest in the remaining (now 3) books. Ciao.

    The next best thing to a great cover is a good 'ol SPLASH!
