Nothing says 'buy me' quite as well as 'CGC it' in an eBay listing.

 

Except maybe for CAPITAL LETTERS AND EXCLAMATION MARKS!!! meh

Yeah, terribly overgraded, but at least there's big pics so you can see how overgraded it is. The envelope is pretty cool though.

And it's nice to see an owner who appreciates a treasure like this enough to keep it for many years.

If valued at $10K, why don't you CGC it yourself and sell it for $10K?

-Because that would involve the hassle of sending it to CGC, not to mention the extreme likelihood that the book will NOT grade that high, or is restored, in which case, the seller can't get some unsuspecting rube to overpay for the book.

The envelope is what I would want! I would buy that separately.

if CGC notes this as the second comic, what do they note as the first?

Burpmachine? That sounds like an ebay handle that a spouse would pick for you. Well at least is wasn't Gasmachine.

"Overgraded" yes but "Restored"? It's got the original mailer, as well as extremely obvious and easily repairable defects like spine splits and tears. All of which indicates it is neither high grade nor restored. An "unsuspecting rube" would have to ignore the obvious defects and be completely unaware of how this book compares to other books graded (not just by CGC but by anyone) at 7.5. So, the unsuspecting rube who thinks this rare book would get a high grade in a slab would be about as clueless as... well, as a guy who would pay too much for a common book just because it's in a high grade slab.

Funnies on Parade.

 

But there are arguements for other books as the first comic. Depends on who you ask.

if it doesn't sell, i'm going too. i'm not a professional grader, but i've taken it to two shops and a local collector and they all called it "very fine" or very fine + or -. but yeah, if it doesn't sell, i'll probably get it graded. and hopefully not get disappointed. what do you think it would grade at? cause i looked at a few 2.0 and 4.0 and a 7.5...and this book was in just as good shape as the 7.5. much much better than the 2 or 4.

 

and caps sell on eBay. hahaha. whatever

 

and its definitely not restored. its been inside that envelope for about 80+ years. pretty wild.

 

and i looked it up here... Comics Price Guide value

 

WOW!

 

what would you say it's worth?

I would predict a 5.0 2c

I can't imagine any experienced collector or shop giving that book a grade

anywhere near VF. The spine damage appears pretty extensive. The good

news is that it is a wonderful book, good luck with the sale.
