The $2 variant!  I think this is a Canadian price.  Regular price was $1.50.

Picked this one up off of ebay . There is some creasing on the back cover. I usually buy thinking that the item is at least one grade lower than sold as. This was sold as an 8.0. I'm calling it a 7.5 and am happy with it as it still has a glossy cover and a great spine.

Even though I have FM 57 as a digital copy, this is one I wanted to have on hand. Picked up in trade as a 5.0. FM 63 from the same trade graded as a 5.5.

Two new arrivals. Never tried CREEPS but I have a few more coming. This is issue 15. Hopefully half of the stories will live up to the enticing covers. Also a 1964 Famous MOnsters Yearbook that stretches to grade out at  4.0.

That's a really nice copy! Looking for a reader but prices are insane.

I have 2 of them. the one posted is the lower grade copy of the two, the other copy is around a 7.5 and is going to CGC for slabbing.

Both copies came out of the massive collection we acquired in Red Deer, Alberta Canada which you can read about here if you are interested:

Hard to believe that's the lower grade copy!

it has enough defects that I would say it is a 4.5 maybe a 5.0 at best. The photo is flattering to the book.

Finally sent these in after a decade sitting in a box. Got the grades and images today. Happy with the results.

@Buck Biggins did you get the Imaging Service from CGC on these?  Or did you scan them yourself?  Was curious to know what Scanner you used if so.

 

Also opening this up to the thread.  Anyone know of good scanners for Magazine Sized CGC Slabs? (shrug)

 

BTW CONGRATS on these Stunning grades.

Fresh in today.  5 issues to go, or 6 if you include the Deadliest Heroes one-shot.

I need to replace my recently deceased scanner, but there are so many books I want more!

I love my Epson GT-15000.  There is also a legal size scanner thread:
