Hi all,

Ok, it's time....I will post one book tonight to get this thread rolling, but I plan a thread of Gold and early Silver, between 60-70 books, over the next few nights. I will group them by genre, with round 1 being pre-code romance/GGA. (This will be about 1/3 of the thread). The romance books are mostly pretty sharp and fairly esoteric; it's hard to find many comps so I'm using multiple sources and taking the OSPG with a grain of salt. One book tonight, more beginning around 10 pm EST tomorrow. I will try to do a heads-up post shortly before beginning each round, and I will edit the headline with each new round. The back 2/3 of the thread should have a little something for everyone; Archies, heroes, horror, humor, war, Atlas/Marvel pre-hero, Tom Corbett, etc. 

:rulez:

Payment is money order or check -- I do not have Paypal.

Shipping -- $5 up to first three books U.S., actual thereafter. Canada is actual shipping.

Returns -- Sure, just notify me within three days of receipt and get it back to me in the same shape on your dime. (Unless I missed something.)

Don't be listy (tsk)

A word about the romance books -- while they may not be Grails of the genre, many of the romance books I will offer are not ones you see every day, and they are in fairly nice shape. If I were not expecting to be offered a Kirby page in about a month, I would probably just hoard them all. I will wait 24 hours before taking PM's on these mid- and higher grade books.

Many came from an LCS that acquired an OO collection; a couple came from a different LCS that says they came in from a retired Marvel employee's office copies; other lesser grade books were accumulated by me over the years.

Let's begin tonight with one uncommon book, then we will continue in earnest tomorrow evening. Thanks for checking this out!

:news:  SOLD! First up is the issue that followed the GGA Grail Daring Love #1...with the next issue, it became Radiant Love. And, is oftentimes the case, this one has an interior splash that, had it been the cover, this would have achieved grail status too. (See "Let me Die" below).

I'm grading this book at VG/FN 5.0, taking it down from 6.5-7 range for two main reasons: note color loss at left in the light blue above the bride's head, and a thin layer of paper missing top left back cover. Slight foxing/soiling on back. Comps are thin; only out there available that I can find is lower grade than this.

Radiant Love #2 VG/FN $200.

No question about it -- and yourself as well, Rick! 

But I don't want, you, Cav or anyone else to have the frustrating experience of 12-15 between books, as I have nothing else shot yet. I have an early day tomorrow so I will shoot a few now, a few in the a.m., a couple just before starting, and then be ready to roll 'em approximately 10 p.m. EST. I'll pop a heads-up a few minutes before starting.

There's probably 18 or 20 romance/GGA books in the stack, half of which are as nice or nicer as the Radiant Love #2, and about as common.

You think you can beat Cav? lol 

I think he has an "auto reply" that just says "take" as soon as anyone posts. :roflmao:

King Takebot never sleeps. :sumo:

Cav is a remorseless buying machine that leaves only broken comic book dreams in his wake (unless you are the seller).
