It was in the HA write up of the "Ed Sarley" collection last August. I had a local print shop develop me a customized doc to accompany the AF15 (forever). My idea, with the original words and scan (on sturdy thick paper with a yellow border). Here it is and a close up of the words:

Amazing provenance of the book! Maybe I should ask Sparkle if they can do a write-up like that as well for my copy hm

Good idea DK. Any accompanying doc keeps the history alive on the book. If I recall, your book has an OO story. :idea:

Wow, that is so cool there Brannon. :headbang: The colors of this Ed Sarley A15 is very different than other AF15's out there. The information you provided about the OO, makes the books in that collection unique and special. Not to mention some of the books are really sharp and rich in colors.

Yes it is (thumbs u I've already sent an email to Sparkle City and asked if they had any accompanying pictures when they first laid eyes on the collection and if they have a little write-up history on the OO.

Sadly, mine came back restored (married page). :( If anyone is looking to downgrade to raise some cash, let me know! I want a complete unrestored if possible.

Still a nice looking copy. What is a 1.0 restored worth/sell for? One day I MIGHT be able to afford a similar copy.

GPA has the last sale at 1500$ back in 2008. A 1.8 sold for 1900$ in Feb 2012 so I would think its got to be somewhere in that ball park.

Maybe who knows the book is crazy, I would think that its probably around 1800-2200 or so since a 1.8 went for 1900 this February.

Crazy how prices have soared.. I remember buying my first af 15 Cgc 5.0 back in 2005 I believe for $2500 unrestored.
My first copy was a fair back in 1994 for $300 :insane: Had a 5' vertical tear across the middle front cover and a hole through the fc

I noticed this on page 2 of this thread posted about four years ago!!

Acquired last year from Brent. I'm not a big spidey fan, but, he had it for sale and my son thought it would be cool. I got it signed this year. Not sure how much longer I'll keep it. But, for now, here you go...
