Well I almost feel embarrassed to post after these great books but I have been busy trying to slowly get this run completed. I’ve got my work cut out for me...

side note got my Everett Subby sketch back from from framers not the correct thread but it’s appropriate imo and I don’t think anyone would mind .

Never apologize for Timelys! :foryou: You have an outstanding run started and I hope you keep going. My collection is all over the place in terms of grades because I'm always looking for a "deal". lol  Well, except for my All Select set. I've gotten a leeeetle carried away on it.:fear:

Is this issue scarce ? 

Not especially, at least according to the CGC census data. Sub-Mariner #7 may be uncommon, but with 25 universal copies and 9 restored (34 total, assuming no duplicate resubmissions), several of which are high grade, scarcity would probably be considered a borderline case based on demand and availability.  That’s just my 2 cents (other’s mileage may vary, as all Subbies are desirable books).

One thing I’m really learning is respect in trying to collect these . I’m totally understanding the difficulty in obtaining and buying at a decent price is not an easy task.

I knew from the start I would be on lower end of collecting Subby’s I wanted to stay in 2-4.0 range but my goal is no restored books. So far so good .

The difficult part is accepting that even with money in hand finding a particular issue is not like Silver Age era and beyond. You have to get in line and wait . When one does come up it’s eye opening how fast and expensive a book can rocket up. The other point I wanted to make is not all issues exist in low grades. I have a cgc census from last year I printed off to use as a guide on issues I’m after and what’s been graded . Some books exist only above 3.0 or more which puts me in more pricey buy in and more competitive bracket to obtain these . 

Im learning and having fun collecting these . It’s been most rewarding for me over any other period as it also feeds my urge for the hunt!

I have found the personally at least that there is a lot of fun in the hunt for the perfect copy. A surprising amount of Sub-Mariner books are available at any given time. Heck if you have the money there are 3 different copies of Submariner Comics 1 on eBay right now. Finding a book in the right grade at the right price is a much more challenging task and rewarding process, at least for me.
