I found a coverless copy at a NY show about ten years ago. Was going to get Fedora Man to do one of his excellent cover reproductions but never did.

Be proud of that baby- cheap copies of Strange Tales 89 are even scarcer than high grade ones!

I can't remember seeing a worse one; of course, the ones you tape snag yourself FEEL worse than anything!

I'll say!

Of course, we're all preservation experts and know how to handle comics. Years of experience means that accidental tape pulls will never happen to us. I still think of that fact when I recall pulling a full square inch of cover colour off the centre of my otherwise NM ASM #33.

I got over it though. It's only a comic after all, isn't it. Heh heh...

Rejoining my clubs due to PB. I sold almost an entire Pre-Hero Marvel collection, but FFF stays home!

That's a really pretty 5.5 sir!  Looks much nicer than the assigned grade.

Thanks all!

There's a little bit of foxing on the top of the back cover and some corner bluntness and general wear but I liked it better than the other ones I was looking at in my price range.

Hopefully no one drew a bikini on FFF or put lipstick/wig on him like an old Superman comic I once owned.
