Well, hey...if Spawn #1 can have one....;)

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:

Here's a scan of mine! :banana: I bought this raw off of eBay in 2002 or so, got it graded last year? I can't remember.

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.
