Congrats @SuperGrover and @mwotka on your Planet 12 pick ups.  A book I really like that’s a bit underrated in my opinion. I love how you can see the end of the chain in the man’s hand as he was going to assist the tied up woman before being frozen while in the act.  Not an easy book to acquire.

Wow, about an hour to go in the CC auction and the prices on several of the Planets are already nuts!  

Good luck to all the boardies bidding in this one.

You and your love of Planet 17! I tapped out at $3,800 or so.  

Honestly, I think this is the prettiest copy of this book I have ever seen.  The reds are amazing and white pages too!

Congrats Rick

Two pickups tonight that I thought looked really good for their respective grades.

Very nice! I especially like the deep reddish-orange background on that 40 :cloud9:

Thanks bud! It felt like the right companion to my Toledo copy of Planet 18.

Yes, both your new 17 and your 18 are unicorns.  Those colors are unreal. (worship)(worship)

The Toledo Planets are not very high grade on average but tend to have very strong colors.

Managed to pick up the 2, 5, 7, and 10.  Overpaid for the 2, but it's my favorite Planet and will never leave my collection.  

You got some great ones

I assume you mean the Berk copy.  Exceptional book!  Well done Tim.  

I was the under bidder on the 5, the last rivet issue I needed.  I’ll finish off the rivets someday!

Congrats on your pick ups!

That 40 is stunning.  I meant to bid on that one but got distracted with the CC auction tonight.  Great pickup!

Yeah, the Berk copy.  This Planet collecting business is incredibly addicting.

It is indeed my friend.  And the rivet issues are especially intoxicating.  You did very well tonight.

Thanks.  I also really wanted the 17.  Glad to see it went to you.  That's a beauty.

Well done, fellow Planeteers! Some radiant copies landed here! I know Rick had been hunting down this particular copy of Planet #17 ever since it first popped up, then disappeared from sight before eventually surfacing again after long months. Did anyone keep a record of the CC results on those Rivets? :foryou: Looked like most of them were on track to finish strongly, which if so is heartening after the extraordinarily variable results of the Church auction. Last time I looked, the weakest bidding seemed to be on the #19 - cannot understand why that book does not get the same love as #17 and #18 [apart from the Church copy of course].
