@bc @ Pontoon Thanks for the kind words. It was a beautiful copy that I won off eBay many moons ago. Ah, the good ol' days :cloud9:

And this beauty just arrived in the mail. The spine (other than that top corner) and the color are ridiculous.

Assume you're talking about a Registry Competitive Set Type as you can create a Custom Set anytime.

Great question!

I've thought about this before - unless they can combine the existing sets into a master "PHM" set with those specific issues, there isn't much reason/demand to create a new separate set. Why would someone with the best TTA set (who has very little of the others) want to transfer to another competitive set where they have no ranking? More so with JIM & Strange Tales as those titles have more fanatics due to the PCH portion of their lifespan (Note that closest JIM set is from #1-82).

I use the existing PHM Competitive Set Types to record my books (NOTE: this is meant as an example only and is not intended to be non-inclusive):

Plus, several of the nicer sets are "Obscured" - like your TOS set :) - not sure how that would factor in as they are basically "private data".

IMHO - It's a great question to ask, but there is likely only a very small population that would actually utilize it (and most would be regular posters here). The existing sets (other than JIM) provide adequate functionality.

Just my 2c

Just got this back from CGC.  I sent in a bunch of PHM (thinking they were all about 6.0, but these 3 were the only ones that made it (I hate 5.5s).

For whatever reason I dislike half-grades as well.  I wonder how common that is.
