Nice colors! How are the stories?

Just read the Suspense 10 last night.  The last story was pretty good, but the first, illustrated by Russ Heath, was killer!

That's one of the two reasons I don't like slabs;  First, you can't read the book, and second, slabbing puts it on another tier, jacking the "value" up tremendously, thus keeping it out of the hands of most collectors.  JMO.

You are not the target for slabbed books. They are for high grade collectors and those that transact their books regularly. I know when the time comes for me to start selling off the better books in my collection, they will be, without a question, slabbed. Until that time, I will keep them in nice shiny mylars so that I can enjoy them in their entirely anytime I want to.

One of the reasons I like slabs is that they are so much fun to crack open. Sort of like a Christmas present any time you want one!

All of these were slabbed at one time or another...

This one looked so much sweeter out of its prison!

Yeah slabs are a total drag, but I love mylar!  Its like putting a protective gloss coat over a fantastic paint job.  And you can still "feel" the book.  I see they have clear backing boards now, which sounds interesting, It would be nice to see both sides.

Thanks! That video is now out of date but we did do a new one for the latest version of the CGC holder. I should probably do one for the other company's holder as most sane folks are scrambling to remove every hint of their existence.
