I bought this off of eBay in early 1999.

 

Final bid price was $61. With S&H, it was $66.

 

I had been looking to buy a copy for yearrrrrrs. My high bid was $125. ;)

 

It is a solid 9.2/9.4 candidate.

I have a feeling this is going to be a significantly smaller club than the Spawn one. hm

 

I wish I could join. I only have a 4th printing. :sorry:

Why not? We're not snobs, like those guys over in the AF #15 Club. ;)

 

Any printing will do.... :)

Hey now! AF 15 club isn't filled with snobs! :sumo:;)

 

I'll cash in a partial membership to this club with my 3rd print copy; of course I really, really want to pick up a 1st print copy. Sure, great investment and all, but let's face it: this book has makings of an actual grail book for more than just financial reasons. It's got decent artwork, a good story, and it is the groundwork for one of the major pop culture icons for a generation. Can't wait to own a copy of the book that kick started it off!

Nah, I was just kidding. ;)

 

I'm just jealous cause I don't have one.

 

Actually, I'm just too cheap to pay for one. :)

Love the book but can you guys tell me why this gets a universal grade when EVERY other book thats signed or sketched on gets the green label? I guess its just one of those special books. I was yelled at the nycc by CGC just for even asking about that.

I would guess that the cover with the sketches will get a yellow label if it was witnessed, otherwise if would get a green? Is yours a sig series, peasofcrap? To my knowledge there aren't any books that get preferential treatment, when it comes to autographed covers.

      Little Giant Comics OLD SCHOOL COMIC SHOW 
      Here's the deal, I wanted to create the kind of show I would want to attend.
      GREAT COMICS, GREAT ART & ARTISTS!
      I want to enter a room filled with amazing comics, incredible art and talented artists, I don't think that's too much to ask.
      Seems like every show I attend only has a small amount of comic vendors (usually the same 3 or 4 people I see at every show), the rest of the floor is fidget spinners, Cosplay stopping in front of your booth for photo shoots, sweaty ROOT BEER mugs everywhere dripping on your comics or art, Pirates running around, knick knack patty whacks, energy drinks, Ice Cream vendors and flea market fodder........
      NO MORE I SAY!!
