  1. I thought another message of explanation was needed. If you gaze throughout my account, for the past 3 years I have posted on numerous subjects based on signatures, autographs of comic writers and artists (either responding to threads on the subject of signatures or starting my own threads). I started a thread initially retrospecting the “worst” Lee SS books (AF 15’s with Stan signatures on Spiderman’s face, etc.) which although began as plain curiosity, fun and overall admiration for Stan, to see the many signed books which did not turn out so well, once Stan passed along and a boardie m
  2. Here is the proof of these books never entering the market again. now they will never be considered “authentic” by any one at any time.
  3. Hello, This will be the final message I write on the boards before my banning, which I am sending CGC a direct message asking if they may do so. I do not expect to be forgiven nor do I expect to justify my most heinous actions to our most virtuous and loyal comic hobbyists community, which has been nothing but kind and gracious to me. I do not deserve to call myself a boardie nor to have any interaction with any of you all most honest collectors on this forum, my reason is as follows: Last evening at about 10:30 I received a call that my financially week and very feeble grandmot
  4. I found sufficient reason based against my claims of the signature's authenticity and am asking the board to ban my account for doing this. It was a pleasure being on the boards for the past 3 years, but I am accepting responsibility for my actions and feel as though it would be right to delete any mention of me as I find that the CGC boards would appreciate it thus.
  5. I have thoroughly studied Stan and Steve Ditko's signatures throughout the years and I am almost certain this is not any good. The "s" is far too enclosed within itself, and the double "e" at the end is a wretched mockery of a forgery. Of course, "This above all: to thine own self be true" But if it were me I would say a certain no. But once again, that is just my own opinion, I could be wrong. Hopefully it turns out well for you at the end, and I hope you the best with them/
  6. Ahhh, okay, I think I am getting it now. So, yes that is the 5th physical sheet of paper (page) from Cap 1 which is why they refer to it as the 5th page meaning the 5th sheet of page in the book, but when CGC says it is page 5 it means the actual story page either front or back. So if that page you have had a piece out and it only affected the story on the front side they would say "piece out from page 9" or at least I think so...
  7. these were a few of the past sales which I was basing the copy I purchased with. The CGC census has only recorded 63 copies of Detective Comics 29 with 29 of those restored so there are only 33 unrestored copies in the census. It is a very scarce book and although I do believe the cover is what made this book at some points even beat tec 28 even though it is Batman's third appearance and not second. But this book is the book which started my love for collecting comics and I have been looking for decades and I always seem to miss out on the deals since they sell so fast. I figure
  8. Hello guys, I recently purchased this copy of Detective Comics Issue 29 CGC and it is quite beat, but my question was, the CGC label says puece out of page 5, affects story. my question is when they refer to “page 5” are they referring to the 5th leaf? So back and front, the front of a page being page 1 and the back being page 2 (so 2 “pages” on one page) or does this refer to page 5 being both front and back counted as 1 page. also when they mention,” piece out affects story” would this have to be a rather big piece or can this mean a very minor flaw, perhaps a few words cut

  10. You have a very nice piece indeed. Yes I apologize it must have been my miscount in general of the pages. This would be page 22 not 21 and I believed this is the other page I had seen, or perhaps it was a differnt one, I cannot remember. If so I do not intend to adress that there are only my page and one other, i just mean in essence it is a rather scarce piece to find out there and I would not assume those who own a page such as this would not intend to sell it off. Truly a great piece. Congratulations!
  11. Hello, up for sale is the 21st page of Captain America issue 1, which is, of course, the first appearance of Captain America, Bucky and of the Red Skull. This page is quite phenomenal and in my opinion, there is not any page which is better. This is the first fight which cap and red skull ever have and as seen in the pictures, Red Skull is exceptionally prominent in this page (leaf) and it is just classic Kirby. This books record sale was $343,000 and are obviously a holy grail for any collection, so for anyone who cannot afford a copy, this is the second to best thing. Some argue
  12. Hello, I am selling these comic books as a lot, together. For sale are 3 silver age marvel key issues and 3 stan lee signatures! First the strange tales 89 which is a bey hard book to find. It is the first appearance of Fin Fang Foom. This copy is in my opinion a 2.0, in the Mylar it looms phenomenal, sharp colors and gloss and complete only problem is the spine is completely split and the cover is fully detached but still a true beauty. Next is a copy of Avengers 2 the second appearance of the avengers and the issue Hulk leaves the team. A beautiful copy it is missing an ad
