Double covers are rare especially for GA and SA books. I once had a double cover of Detective Comics #48 that graded out as a CGC 8.0.. That was a beauty! Miss it everyday

i've owned a few SA double covers and even triple covers. what's more rare is a comic cover with the wrong interior. :whistle:

Quite rare from what I've seen. Not one book I bought off the rack or in a multi pack in the 70's had a double cover. Of all the books I've bought and been given, and I must have about 12K-15k, I have 2 double covers that I can think of. I have Space 1999 with a double, and a ASM 127

 

Triple covers or more, never even seen one. I have heard of triple covers though.

I have about forty double covers of various comics and five triple covers. All my Triple covers are Avengers ranging from 39 to 106.

I've never come across one in the wild. All mine were bought as DC or TCs.

The double cover thread. http://boards.collectors-society.com/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=5116121#Post5116121

 

Start at the link, work backwards.

 

There's a book with 7 covers on the last page of this thread.... Yes.. 7!!

 

Unbelievable. That would have to be some kind of record and CGC would have to charge for submission times if that was common

A friend showed me a Charlton comic that was all covers, no interior pages.

I have a Wolverine #2 (1990 series) that I bought off the newsstand myself, and when I got home I realized it was a double cover.

 

Only one I own. And I still have it.

Obviously there are double cover collectors, but out of 15k+ comics I own, mostly picked up as back issues, I have only one. So there u go.

Same with me. I don't have 15,000 books, but of the several thousand I do own only one is a double cover.

I've personally found only three in my entire 24+ years of collecting.

 

The first two, I passed on, because I was young and dumb.

 

The last one, I found about six months ago, and the store owner whined so much about it, I let him have it.
