  1. It really is great. My wife loves this book and insists I buy every copy we find in the wild, if it is not beat up. That limits the purchases quite a bit! Still, I have 4 copies. Now that the prices are going up a LOT she may not insist so much.
  2. Whereas the #26 was driven by both and got $5200 in 9.2 in 2014. IN 2019 and 2020, the #26 in 9.0 sold twice for more than $1600. Makes you wonder what it would get now. I thought $5200, at the time, was ridiculous but now, if I had the money, I would buy it.
  3. On one hand, I love hearing that Barks is getting the love he deserves. On the other hand, I waited too long to buy a nice copy!
  4. I love the fact that you are going to try and complete the run! When you do, you'll have to start a thread to show it off.
  5. Not to Badger a point, it looks like it has ink loss on Penguin's hat, head, and coat. Lou_Fine says its total .
  6. I've only bought one and it was previously MRBedrock's copy so that should tell you how rare it is.
  7. So what about this one? To me this is just insane that it even exists above 9.4. Black cover picks up and shows off everything, as you know. This is stunning and I'm going to be watching its auction just waiting for it to break $50,000.
  8. Sorry, but I do not see what you are talking about. I see a spine that due to gloss is hyper reflective due to the light box Heritage is using. The things going on with the staples, maybe tears, maybe color breaking stress, I think are stress that outside the light box are much less intrusive. Again, I suspect, I have not held these books in hand, that they are so glossy that your normal critiques from scan/picture are not working. This book, in hand, would blow your lou_fine mind. I'll also add that this book would be one of the highlights of my collection if I could afford it. Absolutely stu
