Sorry, there is no way that TTA #1 should be ranked higher than ST #1 in horror comics. That is just ludicrous. And TOS #1 failing to make either the horror or the Sci-Fi lists is just about as bad a call. Terrible.

:gossip: Three of the top 4 are actually PHM: JIM #1, TTA #1, ST #1.

EDIT: Noticed a typo in the rankings for 2019. Looks like the values placed the books in the "correct" order, but TTA #1 is #4 and ST #1 (below TTA) is ranked #3. Weird.

Good eye on the typo!

IMHO JIM1 & ST1 are PCH until Lee,Kirby & Ditko came along - but why quibble over minutiae :)

Here are the other contents of the box. Very excited to add all these to the collection, but I will be washing some dishes, collecting aluminum cans, and considering the Seinfeld trip up to Michigan with a box truck full of bottles to return... Many thanks to the boardie who was kind enough to sell these to me, I will let him out himself if he would like!! (Sorry if the image is rotated, damn iPhones...)

Yowza ! Bringing out the big guns this summer  :headbang:

Very high quality additions m ! Page quality is off the hook. Can you please post the TOS 33 so I can drool on my keyboard (that one has eluded me so far).

Congrats again on an awesome score!

PS - Plasma Alliance kept me in beer money thru college.

I'd argue that TTA #1 belongs on the Sci-Fi list more than the horror list, but that would just be more quibbling.

Not to quibble over a quibble, but I agree.

Thank you!!

Yeah, the TOS #33 was the last pre-hero I needed to complete the #1-38 run, now I just need to upgrade my #13 & 17 to 6.0 or better slabs and I'll be set.

Thanks for this :cloud9:

Double Congrats on finishing the set! I will be tipping a pint in your honor in a few hours.

If I can ever find an upgrade to my 6.5 TOS17, you'll be the first to know :)

Well if @batman_fan can own a superb PHM Kirby splash page, then Commissioner Gordon can gladly join in the PHM madness as well !

Congratulations to @RICK STARR on his recognition for the one of the best GA Registry sets of 2019 for his Strange Tales 1-100 collection !

Best Golden Age Sets

RICK STARR - TALES OF THE STRANGE - Strange Tales #1-#100
Any Atlas collector appreciates the true scarcity of these '50s issues, particularly the highly sought after horror titles. Rick Starr's run of Strange Tales is over 75% complete and boasts many issues in the 8.0 to 9.2 range, incredibly tough to find, making this one of the nicest existing runs of Strange Tales in existence. If not the nicest!

A pint (or 4) is raised in your honor sir! :tink:

Wow, I just found out about this. Actually, I was not aware of such awards. Very cool. Is there a list of the winners somewhere on this site? Thanks, bc and others for keeping this thread alive!

List of the major winners on page 1 of that thread.

No problem keeping this thread alive - seeing some new blood posting in this thread is very encouraging :)
