Another Planet off the list. I don't know about what other Planet collectors think, but I think that 12-20 are all tough to find with an extra level of "tough" to 13,14,15, and 17. Ultimately 15 is the toughest of all. Anyway, I digress to this Planet #17. I was super excited to not only find a #17, but it is in great condition with only two graded higher ( a 9.4 I will never ever see and an 8.0). This one is no where near as red as Parkers copy, but I will definitely cherish my copy.

 

Also on a seperate note.......man I love Zolnerowich covers!!

parker's FORMER copy--the whole rivet run, 'cept for 1 and 22 [needed for my p'gree run--toledo] were sold this week to an anonymous boardie. kel recalls well; the old boy is red.

...always interested in the true reds! I believe that the colors in #17 could have been even more vivid - I once just missed out on a really low grade copy on ebay that indicated as much - but the scan was too small to be worth keeping.The search goes on...

...and here is my upgrade, just in today from its journey across the pond - some small trace of red, but the book is a bit yellower than my scanner translates:

Nice books.

Where from "across the pond" did you find those?

Cross posting this here. I gotta say that all of these Planets are making it hard to stay focused.

I almost bit when Parker showed his rivet run. Each week is getting harder than the last to not bite the bullet and add some to the collection.

Well, I don't collect Jungles (only Fights). These were purchased off eBay on a night of boredom :shrug: but thanks!! I like them :) I am about 6 away from the Lorna run.
