    Maybe its more like a bad case of lack-of-perspectivus.

    Pre- Hero Marvels!!!!

    That may qualify as a "greatie" not a "goodie". Another issue that is elusive in higher grades, yours has really good cover wrap and the corners look like they could cut you. Rock on man!

    Pre- Hero Marvels!!!!

    That's a tough book in any grade above VG and a pedigree to boot! Very very nice way to start!
  6. Looks like it is to me. Check out the protruding covers about a 1/3 of the way down the bundle and then again about 1/2 way down.

    Where is your sense of adventure? "Inside the house there is also a very old basalt millstone used for the olive pressing."
  12. The biking years were between '68 and '76 when I lived in Cleveland. Once we moved out to the "sticks" in southern Medina county in '77, the biking didn't cut it as the stores were pretty far apart (but I still did it on a smaller scale). Once I could drive it was back to game on, but then I discovered the conventions (Mid-Ohio Con), monthly Medina County Fairgrounds shows (thank you Nelson Dodd) and found a few LCS in the region, I started to sell off the dupes and focus my collection. I still speculated on books like Alpha Flight 1 (bought 50 copies for cover and sold them for $5 each out of the back of my car at one Mid-Ohio Con show). I sold off four complete sets of X-Men 94-125, 2 sets of Iron Man 1-25 and one set of Subby 1-25 at one show (maybe '82?) and remember my mom freaking out when I showed her the ball of cash (at the time X-Men 94 was a whopping $50 book). She kept asking me if it was drug money because no one would pay that much for comic books! Man, wish I would have kept some of those books now.
  13. Ehh that's trivial. Makes it easy to see where the fields are located in the different iterations since the data is the same
