  1. Some recent upgrades to the registry set. Particularly happy with the Amazing Adventures #36. When I first joined the boards, I sold my copy of AA #36 30 cent variant (CGC 9.2) that I had had for years and regretted it ever since. Not the same copy, but I like this one better. Paul~
  2. Standing back a bit from the screen, I still like Option #1 the best.
  3. Thanks to everyone who responded. I've decided to leave it as is. Just too many issues for a CPR candidate. Anyone want to move a 9.6 Amazing Adventures #11? Paul~
  4. Creatures on the Loose #22 Classic bondage Jim Steranko cover on the first appearance of Thongor! Warrior of Lost Lemuria! Written by George Alec Effinger, pencils by Val Mayerik, and inked by Vince Colleta. Adapted from the original stories by Lin Carter. Case: Older style case with four posts intact, no significant scratches or blemishes, but minor surface scuffing. Label on top is sharp and crisp. No lifting or creasing. All slabs shipped boxed with plenty of packing material (bubblewrap/packing peanuts) to ensure safe arrival. ASKING $60.00
  5. Thanks for thoughts so far. I'll shoot some pictures of the back cover this evening and post them. I'll also shoot close up shots of the front corners as well. BTW, I agree about "lite" versus "light". Paul~
  6. I'm really on the fence on this one. I know a clean won't really help with the fingerprints, but the bends should come out. Was graded in 2001. Grader notes attached. Opinions requested, please.

  7. 1973 GTO. Bored and stroked to 468. Sold at auction 2 years ago. My last restoration.
  8. Not sure if this is the right location for this. If not, let me know and I'll take it down. Thanks, Paul~ I have a complete run of raw Back Issue Magazine from 1-100 (all high grade as I bought multiple collections and culled the best issues out). This is the magazine published by TwoMorrows Publishing. Many are out of print at the publisher, (although to be transparent, they do have issues 27-28, 30-32, 37, 39-42, 45-47, 49, 51-55, 57, 59-60, 64-80, 82-87, and 91-98 still available). If there is enough interest, I will post copies. Thanks, Paul~ Here's a picture of one of my favorites from the run. (Not the actual book, just a pull from the 'net).
  9. Oops, You are correct. AA #16, not a picture frame. I'll take it down. Paul~
  10. Recently added some upgrades. I'm happy to have the Creatures on the Loose #15, but I think the Suscha News copy has a slightly better wrap. Paul~
