I just noticed the WINDY CITY batch of #1 issues only has 3% of its numbers listed in the CGC directory - so sez this pedigree web site.

 

 

Hey Bob, good to hear you'll be at the NY show. There's several ways to look at that 3%...one is that the Windy City collection is huge, and many books in it would not rate CGC grading because of their lower value. Also, the collection was split up many years ago, and I'm sure a lot of them are not marked as Windy City anymore. And several of those that are worthy of grading are likely sitting in collections that haven't been touched in years.

 

A collection like Gaines will have a very high % CGC graded, since most copies are extremely high grade and active in the market. Crippens will too since they just came out, and the family opted to have many graded for auction.

 

San Frans were broken up a long time ago, but I'm assuming most had either the stamp or the arrival date, so they stand out. And most are incredible grade and the type of books that warrant CGC grading. Given the thousands that should be in the collection, 3% is kinda small.

Hi everyone!

 

 

 

4. It appears that the Pennsylvania collection original list is lost. Does anyone know of big key issues from this collection?

 

 

Thanks for reading…I hope we see some interesting feedback and discussions here.

 

Matt Nelson

 

 

 

When I get home I can provide you with a couple Penn book scans. And don't you forget to add my Fight Comics #19 Church book either!

Sure, email them to me. No promise as to what will make the book, but we'll add them to the database.

Here's a Penn book. Certainly not a key, but a cool book nonetheless...

I think this is a great idea Matt. I'd considered trying to do something somewhat similar on the boards, but your website will be an even better resource given the publicity & audience your book will (hopefully) find.
