I finally completed my Blue Bolt 102-119 run back in late 2018 but my goal was to have them all in 7.5 or higher condition. I only needed to upgrade my 6.5 Blue Bolt 118 but that almost seemed like an impossible task.

I got a message out of the blue a month ago from a guy I didn’t know saying he had a 118 at CGC that he thought would grade around 8.5. It almost sounded to good to be true but a month later this arrived:banana::banana::banana:

Congrats!  Tough book in grade, tough run in grade.

I think I might have posted this before, but this is an interesting issue.  It's a Rockford, but I bought it from Terry O'Neil in 1994 before the Rockford collection came to market.  It must be one of the stolen Rockford's from when the owner moved to California...but I don't know where Terry got it, and he can't remember...:whatthe:

Such a great cover, love the perspective!

My favorite BBW cover, and the related interior story is pretty good as well! (thumbsu

Just found this one on the bay.  I know it's a rip off of Popular Teen-Agers Secrets of Love #14, but I still wanted it.  s-l1600.jpg

Never seen it before but I agree with you, I'd buy it in a heartbeat.  Great cover.

FYI, here's the original, not my copy but I do have one - the whole run actually.  ;)

Notable that it looks like they used the original LB Cole art to make this new cover, which was not always the case. (thumbsu

Ah, so you're the one that grabbed that. I had it on my watchlist forever and couldn't bring myself to pull the trigger.
