The Robert Pedigree... so tough!

There's another Robert book that I posted in the Xmas cover thread.  lol  I got the 3 of them from his brother, along with this, which I had restored:

The guy was out watering his lawn one day in 1994 in my hometown.  I stopped and asked him he ever saved any old comics.  The 4 books were his answer.  $5ea...so you can joke about the Robert Pedigree all you want...:roflmao:

I think I'm going to try that.  Just walk down the street and ask everyone I see if they have any old comics.  That's awesome.

Here's an early Flessel cover that just slips in under the wire.

I would love to buy a big stack of books in 6.0 that looked like that (worship)

Yes indeed, wonder what were the major defects (besides the dried glue) that CGC didn't like which brought the book all the way down to only a Fine 6.0 grade.  ???

Especially in light of the fact that Chuck had it listed as a NM+ copy in his original MH Catalogue.  Of course we know that Chuck tends to over grade at times, but to this extent?  (shrug)

That book looks way better than the grade. I would be unhappy with that grade hmunless they thought the glue was holding a spine split (shrug)

I recently acquired a nice chuck of a 40 year old collection which were mostly graded books. 

I'm looking to move a few, but it's so hard without data to go off of. Can someone provide anything to go off of on this book?

Thanks for your time and happy holidays!

I believe the Katzies are the Katzenjammer kids since they were syndicated by King Features.
