Up for sale tonight…a small stack of original-owner Golden Age comics and Big Little Books, all offered for sale at a single lot price.

I'm selling these on behalf of a close friend.  Everything in this thread belonged to his father-in-law, who passed away last year, and who bought all of them, straight off the rack, during his childhood.  These books have been in family storage for a very long time, and are guaranteed to be unrestored.
All books are 100% complete and readable with very good paper quality (NO brittleness).  Any defects not visible in the scans are noted in the descriptions below.



:takeit: in the thread rules.

• PayPal ONLY for this sale.

• No HOS'ers/probies/etc.

• Payment is due within 2 days of closing the deal unless we've made other arrangements.

DOMESTIC US SHIPPING (fully insured Priority Mail w/extremely secure packaging):

• FREE for a flat rate USPS Priority Mail BOX.

• NOTE: I am sometimes able to ship the same day that payment is received, but usually no later than one day after payment is received.

***VERY IMPORTANT NOTE -- US shipping only, very sorry!***


• Shouldn't be necessary, but…I'm reasonable -- if there's a problem of ANY kind, please PM me and we WILL work it out to your satisfaction.

Need larger scans? Detail pics? Interior pics? More info? Please feel free to PM me.

Finally, my feedback thread is located here (under my old username, but it's still me):
