Howdy!

I will be listing roughly 10 raw GA books from low grade to mid grade.  Shipping will be $8 no matter how many books you purchase.

First person to say :takeit: wins and this trumps ongoing PM negotiations.  I would like payment by either PayPal or check.

Returns are fine as long as it is stated that you want to do so within 3 days of receiving a said book.  Buyer will have to pay return shipping costs. Keep in mind that I'm more than happy to take as many pictures as you'd like of each book to try and avoid potential returns :smile:

First book up is Teen-Age Romances #20

Matt Baker cover and lots of Baker interior art!  Only 7 on the census.  Biggest defects on this book is 2" tear to right of the word 'gypsy' on the front cover as well as a tear on the spine by the woman's head and above that at top of spine.   Interior pages are cream colored.  One page has a 1/2" tear and a 1" tear at bottom.  Small (less than 1") tears on a few other pages from the right edge.  Other than that, there's the usual staining and creasing you'd expect from a lower grade book.  Only other copy I could find online is a heavily miscut raw "good" that looks worse than mine for $175..so I'll ask for a tad more at $180

Next up is Blue Bolt vol. 6 #8

Color breaking creases at the spine, a crease lower right front cover and a tiny piece out of top of spine on back cover.  A 3/4" tear on right edge of one interior page that doesn't affect the art.  Solid book considering it came out in 1946!  Only 2 on the census.  $75

Another Baker cover in Wild Boy of the Congo #14

This is a low grade copy as there is a 2" spine split at the top and a 1" spine split at the bottom.  Minor chipping on back cover as well as a dust shadow.  3 on the census.  A 5.5 sold for $300 earlier this year.  Make this one yours for $75

Here's a book you don't see everyday!  Justice Comics #8

Nice tight flat copy.  Small chip out of top right corner of front cover and a chip two inches from right edge on bottom.  A dust shadow on bottom of back cover.  A tiny tear three inches up by the word 'send' on the back cover as well.  Only 1 of the census.  There's a 7.0 on eBay for BIN $199.  Take this one home for $80

Up next is a Phantom Lady #22

The front and back cover are detached and split from the interior.  The back cover originally went with this interior but the front cover is from another PL22.  So...it's complete but made up from two different books.  The interior is fantastic.  Only thing I could say is slight staple discoloration.  14 on census.  So this would grade a 1.0Q "married front cover" probably.  A 3.5 just sold for $1,315 six months ago...so $350    (shrug)

A book that needs no introduction... The Rifleman #10

Low grade copy.  Several chips out of spine and chip out of lower right front cover.  The staples are still attached.  Two tears on back cover.  Interior pages are off-white.  51 on census.  The lowest graded copy (1.5) is on eBay BIN for $199.  My copy presents better and will cost you less at $130

Here's a Mystic #6

You don't see this too often.  Only 9 on the census.  I would grade this as a fine-.  Beautiful book!  It has the great "Eye of Doom" story and art by Basil Wolverton.  Just a great book from a great series.  There are two poor copies on eBay ranging from $72 - $108.  I probably won't get a chance to get this one back anytime soon.  Don't mind keeping this one.  $600

Alan Class Uncanny Tales #22

From Wikipedia:

"The British reprint-specialist Alan Class Comics published an unrelated Uncanny Tales in the UK that ran 187 issues from 1963 through an unknown final date.(The company did not print cover dates.) The series, digest-sized rather than in standard comic-book size, with color covers but black-and-white interior pages, reprinted stories from the American Comics Group, Atlas Comics, Charlton Comics, Marvel Comics, and Tower Comics, as well as occasional stories from such defunct publishers as Novelty Press and Fox Comics."

Spine split at bottom.  Decent copy.  $5

Final book is...Giant Comics Editions #15

Certainly a low grade book as can be seen in the photos/scans provided.  Some spine issues, a piece missing from bottom right corner of front cover, a 2" tear on right side of front cover.  A 1" tear on back cover.  Some evidence of water damage on front and back covers.  Top staple appears to be rusted. The interior pages are really quite good compared to the covers/spine.  Other than a piece out of one page (which I show) they're solid.  Needless to say, tons of great Baker GGA inside!  13 on the census.  Last sale I know of was for a raw 'fine' on eBay in May that hammered at $2,619.88.  Take home this for $750
