It’s nice to run across a couple of books you weren’t expecting to find in a shop. It’s been at least ten years since I found nice pre-hero at an LCS, but I’ll have to reset that clock now.

They look like they are in pretty nice shape at that! Congrats!

TOS 11 is super cool, but it didn't make my final cut.

Probably because my copy was utterly thrashed!

JIM 62 is one of my keeper books; what's your undercopy look like? :baiting:

My other copy is a CGC 7.0 that I bought raw from Rick Starr here on the boards. This copy looks like it may have a chance to get into that zip code of grade. I'm with you though, I love JIM #62 and simply couldn't leave this copy at the shop even though I already have one. One of these copies will eventually be available, I just have to decide which one!

A couple of lower grade Strange Tales I pulled from my raw collection the other day. They are some of the first back issues that I had purchased as a kid... :cloud9:and I read the heck out of them. (thumbsu

They both have some great colors ! You were a much gentler kid than I, almost nothing survived with a cover or without serious modification to the contents :devil:

xD Thanks, yeah my father was a collector also, so he tried to teach me to take care of my comics... I did my best, also still have the very first book I purchased off the spinner rack when I was 4 (ASM 129) , that one shows a lot more wear, but still in good shape. I tried lol

Added an upgrade for #3 and added #12 to complete the pre hero part of the run.

Looks like the ship has sailed on that last one #15....

Nice looking copies of both books!

In the same boat as you, ship has sailed on an AF15 unless a lottery win occurs...

They look beautiful, what are the grades? AA/AAF is one of my favorite pre-hero runs, and #3 is one of the toughest to find (in grade or even period).
