    Not the best example in the world but it’s one of the best trades I have ever made in my life. I swapped a 1984 Donruss baseball card set and five Jose Canseco rookies for this book in the late 80s. I’m glad I did , Spider-Man seems to have had a better career than Canseco.......

    Congrats on the trade!!  Great copy.

    Been trying out camscanner app. I use android - it creates pdfs.  If there is a setting to have the images come out as jpegs - would love to know. Updated a bunch of CAF art already.

     

    With respect to the comment that lighting/shadows is tricky - I usedthe setting to have the flash/torch on. I put the art vertical on my desk, leaning to the wall and shot the pictures.  A real pleasure to see the app adjust the image so it flattens out.

    I usually camscan the piece, take a screenshot of it from the phone and crop out the top/bottom borders

    I don't believe I've posted this before and since we are looking at ASM #3 mine happens to be a 5.5 as well. Bought this raw back in the '90's and submitted myself in August of 2009. Was not pressed(I don't think I even knew about pressing then, when did it become more prevalent?)

    Beautiful copy.


  4. Hey guys.  Just a heads up.   An item popped up on Ebay titled "Amazing Spiderman 797 Mayhew Variant Original Cover Art Red Goblin Only One!".  I cant post the eBay link currently cuz Im at a work comp.   Its listed for 1800 or best offer.  It was confusing because the title mentions "original cover art" but the description includes "original cover/production art and hand sketch".    I contacted Mike Mayhew via email regarding it because he just recently sold his original cover art for that issue.  This was his reply:

    "I appreciate it.  I contacted the buyer.  It is very strange over all.  I sold the cover this week and it is in transit.  The art in the picture is a cover sketch that I sold today and mailed today."    

    I just wanted you guys to know that the item listed on Ebay is not the final original art for that issue but just a sketch.  Not going after the eBayer's intentions.  He has 100% positive feedback.   Just didn't want anyone thinking they were getting the OA for that issue.
