  1. Did you also watch Raiders on Netflix and also look it up on Wikipedia after and also just discover this Soderbergh experiment? Because I did! Thanks for the link.
  2. The DuoShade board of the next page left imprints on the back of this Rude Nexus page-
  3. Generally regarded as the most beautiful car ever designed.
  4. Imagine handing someone a VHS rewinder today. It's like the 20th century equivalent of a spitoon.
  5. We won't discuss how much money I spent on LDs back then. And people complain about Bluray prices... hah! $35 for your basic run-of-the-mill LD title. Criterion and MGM special releases were $50 and up. I remember when I got the '93 Star Wars remaster boxed set. It was a day long remembered.
  6. This triggered almost as much nostalgia for me as the Robotech opening you posted.
  7. In middle school, I saved some money and bought a NM- Showcase 30 (1st Aqualad) from a dealer in the back of the Overstreet Price Update (iirc). It arrived, looked great, was under Guide, and I was as happy as a middle school comic nerd can be having just scored his first high grade Silver minor key. I took it to one of the monthly Dallas Fantasy Fair shows and showed it off to a dealer I had befriended who was big into Silver DC too. He quickly pointed out the color touch on the inside spine. I didn't even know restoration was a thing! I was so upset, it never even occurred to me to send it back for a refund. I traded it at a loss that day on the show floor for a Batman Year Two set. I was so angry and determined to make my money back, I spent the rest of the day working the dealers in the room -- buying, selling, trading like a shark -- until I had made up for my loss. I'd love to know who sold that thing to me. (I wish I could remember the dealer who pointed out the resto. Does anyone remember a dealer who used to frequent the Dallas shows in the late 80s/early 90s -- who was from, I think, Virginia or the Carolinas, and had a sizable ultra high-grade DC Silver collection? He was very picky about condition. Youngish? Blond-ish maybe? My memory fails me.)
  8. This thread is waaay past caring about such proprieties! @Peter G You should just change this thread title to something random and start a new Heritage July thread.
  9. Probably pasted together and assembled that way for one of the USM hardcovers. Maybe some of the extras in the back. I don't think Bagley is that hard up for paper that he has to work so small!
