A few pick-ups from the last couple months...I seem to collect too many genre's...or too many covers from too many genre's...

 

That’s a common problem in collecting. 

Enjoy it cuz’ there’s no cure once you start...

It's almost embarrassing, I just walked down to the box and found another delivery from the postman that came in this weekend! I seem to collect in streaks. This was purchased from AlphaOmega here on the boards! Kudos!

Beautiful copy.  What a great Romita cover.  I can see why this is such a desirable book.  We need a thread of best silver age covers.  You should start it with that gorgeous copy of Amazing Spider-Man #70.  I'm always reluctant to encapsulate anything other than a key issue.  There are some great frames available now with full UV protection and beautiful covers can be showcased very nicely.  Of course I say this because my old comics are not in such pristine condition, but I think they are still suitable for display.  I actually have a very clean copy of Amazing Spider-Man #28 - the Ditko cover with Molten Man and lots of black.  I'll add that one in the best covers thread, I think.

Thanks man! I don't know if it's specific with this issue but there seem to be more high grade cream to off white or just off white copies than other ASMs from its time? Noticed by skimming down the GPA sold list. Maybe it's just a coincidence? Have you thought of submitting the 28? 

There's already a thread here on classic SA covers that was dug some pages back. I'll post this again in new holder in the SA spider-man collecting thread

I don't want to submit the ASM 28 after reading the grader's notes on the keys I've graded.  Even a slight rounding on the corners or a tiny color break on the spine or a spot of dirt on the back cover is enough to degrade a book down to a 6 and that's not valuable.  It's better to invest in books already graded if you desire the encapsulated ones.

All the comics I've had graded were my own childhood comics and I wanted to preserve them.  My wife can sell them when I'm dead.  They aren't worth so much money wise, but as personal keepsakes.

Yesterday.....

I like to think this very copy was the inspiration for the New 52 series... ;)
