Nothing special about this issue other than its being a good example of covers from this period.  Seems as if they used a variation of this gag a zillion times over the years.  You'd think Juggie would have eventually figured out that Archie has a different definition of fun! :)

Colors are nice on that copy. Surprised that corner crease didn’t get dinged harder.  VG + old school Overstreet I’d say.

Can't remember if I already posted this one. Another gag that they used a lot in one form or another, although Juggie in a dress is an unusual, ah, variant.

I think it's actually a scratch on the slab. Otherwise, yeah, definitely overgraded.

I don’t think CGC dings creases nearly as hard. Shoot subscription creases can get 6.5/7.0.

I just got a cover for my coverless Pep #32!   The cover perfectly aligns with the staples on the coverless comic so it doesn't look like a married cover but instead looks like a book with the cover detached.  It makes me wonder if I'm really just reuniting the comic book with its original cover.

 

Nice!  :headbang:

(I forgot to bid at the end... lucky you)  lol

Any chance you have a cover for Archie 8 or a coverless Archie 7 kicking around in your parts box ?!

Anybody here get that Blue Ribbon #14 on the bay last night? Gino? What a barn burner! The last two minutes it just kept going up every few seconds. Was real low grade but presented nice. 

I love the Mr Justice issues and still need 3. Thought I had a chance for a while but quickly realized there was someone who wanted it REAL bad. I got left in the dust...

Congrats to the buyer. Great book!

If only we could all be like MrBedrock.  He never passes up an opportunity to buy a great book.
