I felt like I had to spend a bit more than I wanted to, but this one was just so pretty, and this book has always brought back memories for me.

That one is actually more desirable than the Pacific coast copy you had asked about! 

I submitted a 9.6 cbcs for a crossover that I thought had a shot at upgrade but I knew it was an outside shot because of those pesky little spine ticks on the back spine that are barely visible :pullhair:. I've seen 9.8s with more color break than my 9.6. Anyone claiming that grading is not strict anymore is full of it!

Thanks...(thumbsu

Someone had one graded at 9.8 this month. The census went up to 14 -9.8s.

I just happened to see it on ebay today (auction :popcorn:) , and it's white pages too. I'll be watching to see how close it comes to, or if it passes, that $5K comiclink sale.

You know what the funny thing is about OCD...that marvel banner being even a bit misaligned on that 9.8 would bug the heck out of me lol. Believe it or not I'd rather have yours over that one. Just goes to show how weird I am about eye appeal. I'd rather have a small white border so long as the banner is aligned. Crazy hobby :S

Agree, 100%.

I'm happier with this 9.6 than I would be with that 9.8 too.

I'll be selling my 9.2 , and eye appeal was the reason. lol.

Actually now that I think of it I'd probably come to my senses  and go with the 9.8 due to sheer value but you get how it wouldn't be a slam dunk. Still a wacky hobby we got ;)

One on my favorites.  Very nostalgic issue for me as well.

There's a page I read a fair few times as a kid. I swear if Warren wasn't in sight I'd have shot me bolt and missed the turkey.

They're comparatively hard to find aren't they, especially in high grade. Great alternative cover isn't it. I remember my old copy was covered in blue ink spray. And it wasn't a 9.2!

Believe it or not, there is only one CGC graded copy of #34. 

It's a 9.8.

To get a nicer looking wrap than the #35 9.8s that I've seen, with white pages, really surprised me.

Yes, do think that's a pretty neat cover.
