  1. Unfortunately, it appears to be more than just the back cover---the water damage seems to have penetrated the entire book. If that's the case, it could significantly affect the grade...
  2. I don't have a problem with 3.0...but I think Doris needs to loosen up a bit, don't you?
  3. I think this is in the VG range...4.5 - 5.0 seems about right...
  4. My mom didn't say very much about Vampirella, but I know she didn't like the fact that her 10 year old son was buying magazines with scantily clad women on the covers. I remember her saying one time that she didn't understand why boys like things like that. Wow...if I have to explain it, that's pretty sad...
  5. I JUST WANTED TO LET YOU KNOW I'M GOING TO BE SELLING MY SWAMP THING #1 IN CGC 9.4 WITH WHITE PAGES (IT'S ALSO SIGNED BY THE GREAT BERNIE WRIGHTSON!) THE AUCTION IS STARTING TONIGHT (5/23/19) ON EBAY. IT WILL START AT 8:00 PM EST AND RUN FOR ONE WEEK (OR UNTIL SOMEONE MAKES ME AN OFFER I CAN'T REFUSE). THE BOOK AND CASE ARE IN BEAUTIFUL CONDITION. THANKS FOR LOOKING AND THANKS FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT!!!
  6. Now there's a picture that puts a smile on my face! I saw Chris play many times---he always seemed to be enjoying himself, and he was definitely one of the best bass players I've ever seen. RIP, Fish...
  7. To be perfectly honest, it greatly saddens me to hear my fellow board members talking this way. I understand that it's good to have a plan for the disposal of your collection, but it bothers me to think that we won't always be here to enjoy each other's company. I'm no stranger to the loss of friends and loved ones, but somehow it seems that this group will be together for a long, long time. In fact, I'd say that hanging out with all of you has been one of the best experiences of my life, certainly one that I'll remember until the day I pass into the void. Most of you should outlive me (I turn 60 this year). I've thought about downsizing my collection, and to some degree I've been successful, but it's really tough to part with certain books. With some of them, I can remember exactly where I purchased them and for how much. With others, I have no real memory of how or where I found them. All I can say is there are some books I can never part with, and after I pass, I hope my relatives keep them in the family for future generations to enjoy...
  8. Very appropriate to keep some of these items in the family. And I like your profile pic!
  9. I think you're in the right area...this book has "Good" written all over it...
