You forgot the 9.8 Western Gunfighters #7, Joe. Freaking amateur.

But he threw in a couple of nice Team Ups to make up for it.

Thanks to Doc Joe for being susceptible to my Jedi mind trick and selling me this book.

The book survived some kind of adventure before I got my hands on it. I asked Joe to send it to CGC for a beholder (the case had a small crack in it). But CGC refused delivery from the post office and sent it back to Joe. CGC told me they refuse delivery when the box sustains obvious damage. When Joe got the box it looked like the Amphibian man from The Shape of Water had taken it for a swim. The book somehow survived the experience.

That WMD is fantastic.

Here's another batch from my living room.  I don't think I've scanned these before-pretty sure they're more Wizard Chicago books.

All beauties there, Paul.

You might want to consider sending the MGC #34 to CGC. That book is incredibly tough in high grade. And it looks like a stellar copy.

A recent addition to my own modest collection of picture frames. 9.6 w/ White pages.

From the Boston show last weekend. Both were absolute bargains.

Just looked back through the thread and noticed how many photobucket images are missing after the update.  Real shame.  Then I noticed on of my links was now broken.  I wish people could edit those posts, but there's no option to do so.  Here's my lame attempt to recover some great images.  From Boston 2016

There's nothing modest about this copy, Sean. It's very sweet.

Separately, GCD lists Gil Kane as the cover artist with Romita inks. Most of the characters have the Kane look. But I can't image Kane drew Sue Storm. It looks like she was cut and pasted from an early Silver Age book.

OK, some more Chicago books (I think), going back to 2007 or so. Including another copy of SME 4.  This copy has to have the best production quality of any copy of this issue I've ever seen.  No ink issues, no transfer and super glossy.  Too bad it spent most of it's life mistreated in a long box of unwanted reprints.  I'm fairly sure I never scanned this, since I didn't even remember I had it.

I think these may be more victims of the great photobucket massacre.  My apologies if they've been posted before (I have a vague recollection of the Bob commenting on the Jungle Action before).

Sweet looking PFS! But are those price stickers still on the bags? I've had problems before with glue from price stickers eating through the bag in time and damaging the comic :sorry:

Wow.  In 40 years of collecting and going through decades old inventory, I've never seen that. I think there's probably other environmental stuff going on to cause that kind of reaction.  Between a job, a business, and three kids, I don't have time to re-bag every book.

So, here's a real puzzler.  I sub very few books.  Found this at WW Philly about 10 years ago, $5 box.  Not only did I and multiple boardees look at it, but so did some of the tighter-grading dealers we know.  Thought it was an easy 9.2, maybe a 9.4.  Somewhere there's a magical "stain" no one can see.  

Oh yeah, one of my all time PF and Kane covers.
