I was contacted by someone with a very small lot of books they inherited (less than 100). One of those one sentence emails along the lines of "I have a box of old comics" that usually yields little. So he starts sending a couple group photos and it's all random 70s Charlton... a 70s marvel here and there... some coverless.. then I'm stopped in my tracks. He just happened to luck out that he had one huge book. I paid him well for it. The other 3 better books I got in the lot (pictured) were not bad either by any means for low-mid grade copies.

Thor and Ka-Zar I picked up together at a trade day in Canton, Texas. Didn't get a great deal, but thinking about getting the Thor graded. 

This is the 2nd Bloodstone #1 I've picked up in the past month. This one at an antique store with #2 and #3 all in one package for $2.00. I was shocked because the seller had racks of comics all over the store and had most of them priced a little crazy. As in beat up Bronze Age for $10 each. Also saw a Star Trek 1 with the title cut off for $50, so I was no expecting any good deals.

Fair enough, this was a local pick-up from a person liquidating a house, which is where these came from (the OO gathered a lot of things and had unopened multiples of you name it).  I was fortunate enough to purchase the comics.  There are a few in this batch in remarkedly good condition for 70+ year old books.

Man, nice score! The two big obvious ones are lucky indeed. Looks like they probably belonged to a girl. Usually girl collections are a little dim but little Joanne had good taste!

Thank you!  I love books like these...  Here's one of the two big books:(:

Kidding aside, here is one of them (it's unfortunately the lowest grade of the bunch but awesome nonetheless):
