  1. As of now it is the highest graded copy! 1961 grey tone Grandenetti & Adler cover. Oops! I just added the pic!
  2. Just picked this one up from an eBay auction last week for a good price!
  3. Correct, along with 25+ others
  4. Today is my thirtieth wedding anniversary. When my wife was out shopping my six foot tall First Order storm trooper arrived. Upon coming home, as she passed him in the hallway, excused herself and smiled.
  5. I know I post mostly about the GI Combat comics but I do have other titles! Sadly I have neglected these while on a mission to build the GIC set.
  6. I have come to appreciate their use of red, yellow , orange and pink colors in the backgrounds of these Grandenetti and Kubert covers!
  7. This has been a really great year for adding to and upgrading my GI Combat set. Possibly as many as 30 upgrades this year alone. The one pictured is the latest one. A really nice 1961 Kubert cover. The downside is that I have many very nice graded duplicates now and I'm really not sure what to do with them. Sure, I could sell them, but would much rather trade for someone else's extras. And I pretty much don't care what they are! As kids growing up in the 50s and 60s we read everything, but war comics were big. We read Superman, Batman and Hawkman too along with many others. Spidey came later. Can I be the only collector with duplicate graded copies? Here are some of my extras: https://comics.www.collectors-society.com/registry/comics/PeopleSetDetail.aspx?PeopleSetID=92871 Thanks for reading and looking! Rich
  8. Won this one at auction recently! 1958 Joe Kubert Cover http://comics.www.collectors-society.com/registry/comics/PeopleSetDetail.aspx?PeopleSetID=80699
  9. Just arrived yesterday! Picked this one up off of eBay. It replaces the 7.0 I had. http://comics.www.collectors-society.com/registry/comics/PeopleSetDetail.aspx?PeopleSetID=80699
  10. I got this one as an upgrade to my set! http://comics.www.collectors-society.com/registry/comics/PeopleSetDetail.aspx?PeopleSetID=80699
  11. Did you get them back yet? Or at least see the grades?
  12. Thank you! I too am a big fan of the grey tone covers!
  13. If your shipment has been marked as "received", then it will just require patience. Sometimes orders will sit as received or verified for quite some time, but once they are marked scheduled for grading the process moves along pretty quickly. Depending on which tier you selected, it could take a few months.
