    Golden Age Comic Racks

    Nice! I’m looking forward to seeing it. I’d like to find the old lady a Dell rack as she primarily collects 40’s LTMM.

    To Slab or not to Slab?

    I wouldn’t expect much help. Several people have pointed out where to get the answers you’re looking for.

    @Point Five The creases on my book seem to be accordion type folds. For what reason, I have absolutely no clue. I was aware of the color touch. I think those two issues made the copy somewhat affordable. Had they not been present, I probably wouldn’t have ended up with it. I sent it to CGC so we’ll see what they have to say.

    Good grief with this thread.

    Thank you sir. I felt like I wasn’t going to get another opportunity to snag it so I went for it. Happy it worked out.

    That’s an awesome COC @X_Phile! I’m not sure if you spoke to the seller that much but he told me that he purchased the COC 19 along with several other PCH books in the 70s. He said it was like that when he got it.

    @Jayman and @X_Phile, I’m in the same boat. They’re definitely very fine crease lines. The ones on the COC are worse on the front cover than the back. I spent about a hour yesterday with a friend trying to figure out what might have occurred. Very, very odd.

    I try not to double post, but I will, just this once.

    Well, no sense in a long, drawn out preamble. So, here it is.

    Seeding bins at a convention - how do you do it?

    Bingo! Thank you Bob for pointing this out. I cannot tell you how many times I’ve walked past a booth with dirty, stained long boxes and gross yellowed bags poking out the top of them. Presentation is very important to me. Even more so when I’m contemplating purchasing a “big book”. So many times I see dealers in my area displaying keys on their walls in bags that look like they’re 20 years old. I just shake my head. A nasty, old bag makes a low grade key book look worse. A new bag or Mylar can make a world of difference on that same low grade key.
