    Nice! They’ll be happy you did if they love comics! Thanks my friend.
  2. Oh man that's horrible. I can't imagine what you're going through. Glad you're all safe though. I'm not far away, and have an extra room if you guys need a place to crash let me know. Or if there's anything else I can do to help please let me know. Tim
  3. **** Case Swap video Real?

    Thanks Kevlar! I've been having a heck of a time getting the new CGC slabs open, finding dozens of plastic splinters on the floor for days/weeks after opening. Your method looks like it will resolve that problem. I do have two concerns. One, when you give it that little twist in the beginning, are you worried about creating any spine stress to the book? I realize it's still in the inner well, and it's a light twist, but I'm always worried about damaging the book (maybe too worried?). Two, I've always tried to completely separate the two sides of the slab for fear of scratching the book while pulling it out of the top as you show (which seems much easier). Again, I know it's in the inner well, but those cracked edges are oftentimes jagged, and I worry about making any impression on the book as it's removed. Am I overly concerned? Have you ever accidentally damaged a book while removing it from the slab? in any case, thanks for the video - very helpful trick with the screwdriver.
  4. Wow. Outstanding. That has to be the comic book cover with the most versions in existence, no?
  5. I can't beat six! I think you will rule the roost unless someone else surprises us.

  8. Thanks Marwood & I! Yes, we definitely have similar collecting tastes! There are a few of us wackos out there Thanks for the nice words. Here are a couple more. I thought I'd switch it up and post a few oddball items. Elektra Lives Again HC: Graphitti signed edition, Regular first edition, Second Printing.
  9. Yeah, so not all of them count Let's see yours?
  10. Silver Surfer speaks the truth. He's probably the #1 collector of high grade Canadian Editions in the world, and I don't think he's trying to hurt your feelings, just being honest. The buying pool for these books is tiny, especially when they're not 9.4+. In fact, we may all be here in this thread When I first sold a few of my Canadian duplicates at a show I was expecting people to be excited to find them. In reality, I had a few people put them back into the box after I excitedly told them it was a 'hard to find Canadian edition' saying, "I'm looking for a U.S. copy" For a book like this, I would personally price it at regular guide for the grade (for the US edition).
