That is super cool.  Did he do all his Planet covers?

No.  I don't know how many he did.

Well I didn’t even know these existed. These are amazing and are now grail items for me.  Thanks for sharing!

Someone just listed a Planets #1 & #2 on ebay.

Wonder how long before they are picked up at 6 grand each.

They've been up a day or so. Someone trying to cash in on the craze/post Church fever. They claim there are only 20-30 issues of #2 in existence. I would love to know where that fascinating 'fact' comes from. :sumo:

I guess this was expected..

For this "They claim there are only 20-30 issues of #2 in existence. I would love to know where that fascinating 'fact' comes from.", in Gerber's issue #2 has a SI of 7 which claims there are around 21-50 in existence.

You're pushing this hard.

The eBay guy says, "I'm not a grader."

Then he says that the books "will be sold as-is." 

I'll take a hard pass on that one.

Ahhh..the old greedybay chestnut..

Anyone who states this sets alarm bells ringing because anyone who even mentions grading knows more than they are letting on.

I can't even see the listings, which is something I hate about Ebay.

Gerber made a lot of guesses based on information from the late 1980s.  They are interesting but very limited in accuracy.

Given how hot the market is for the #1 and #2, I'm sure the seller is already talking to people (a few of them boardies as well) about picking them up.  Even if they have restoration they are worth a gamble at the right price.

restored? (most likely especially looking at the number 1.)

Both look to have amateur restoration.  The #1 definitely, the #2 likely.

I'm no expert on resto, but discounting the tape on #1, it looks to have had a staple replacement unless that's camera flash glare, and on the right side there looks to be a tear thats been sealed, and some CT...and that's just after a quick appraisal.
