This was the first silver-age key I ever had, got it close to 20 years ago as a real youngin' collector. Still have it. Tons of warm and fuzzies, beaten to hell, but I don't care. :cloud9:

Posting this again but since i'm officially part of the club it wouldn't hurt to post it again. Very stoked! It's not payed off for a couple weeks but it's still mine.

 

Ext. restoration includes color touch, piece added, and staple reinforcement

Metropolis has it graded as a 4.0 apparent and I think that's fairly accurate.

 

With my big tax return coming and all my other 1-66 run i've been buying being in the VF range, this book is a good place holder but not up to par with the others. So I might save the money and use it on a 5.0 unrestored graded or so and either sell this or trade it. OR keep a reading copy haha.

3.5/4.0 is my goal. I really can't swing much higher, that is already a stretch.

This was the first CGC slab I ever bought back in late 2000. Note it's not only an old-style slab, but it's OLD-OLD-style--one of the original CGC cases before they introduced the inner well.

It's a second-generation label, though, since it actually lists the page quality.
