  1. NOBODY wants to answer? No opinions? I simply can't see CGC grading it the way they did, unless cover condition supersedes the overall condition of the book.
  2.

  7. Thrilling Crime Cases 49 is the toughest of the run to collect, and that copy is really nice, congrats!
  8. Prices severely dropped on the remaining six EC's.
  9. Not only nice, but somewhat uncommon, as it was out at the end of the pre code era, when fever against "those awful comic books" was running high.
