New purchase!! Woohoo!! I am in the club! I usually like to think my comics are better than the grade, but I fear this one may be slightly overgraded. I am ok with it, as its a great book, but its not as sharp as some of the other 5.0s out there. It is well centered, lays flat, and not a single cover crease other than a very light corner crease, but the spine has some significant wear, and even a few small tears. thoughts?

Very rare...and I honestly had no idea how until I started really looking into these books. Very cool to get a copy with both of them. Congrats!

Great book. Uncommonly good centering of the front cover. That's a real beauty. :cloud9:

Thanks for the comments all. The full quote never occurred to me, I'm glad to have this forum to inform me! I looked at 7 or 8 TOS 39 examples on ebay, and none had 2 full quotes.It will be a good thing to remember if I ever need to sell the book.

That is a nice looking example for a 3.0 Erndog!! It looks like a higher grade to me.

 

I dont know if it is just the cream background on the cover in the pictures of a TOS39, but these books often look higher than their designated grade to me via pictures.

 

Anyways, that is me spidervacc, and I definitely got bit by the comic bug! I also purchased a low grade X-men 1 and Incredible Hulk 181. Really keeping my eyes open for an Incredible Hulk 1 blue label with a grade of 1.8-2.5 for a reasonable price.

It's pretty uncommon. I've only seen a handful with both quotes. Don't really know how to quantify it, but if I had to make a wild guess, I'd say less than 10%. This one really doesn't qualify as it appears to only have part of the second quote.
