Claim the Mystic comics #8

Heh, I just gave with the beautiful Marvel Mystery #16 I picked from Bill last month. More than happy with that for now!
But if I had to strive for a Timely, now it would absolutely be a Cap #46… tough to find a super-low grade within my comfortable price range, though!

I did not know that about the Mystic #5 back cover. That might explain why I once had a copy with an attractive front cover and no back cover. The front looked like it had been neatly cut from the spine, and not separated due to splitting.

last one:  one of the best timely motorcycle covers.  this came from a bound volume.  tho' it is exactly the same dimensions as the 8, I think the right edge is trimmed.  you see all the thread holes, there is tape up the spine, an extra staple and the big chip out of top spine.  a restored mid-grade sold for over 2k last year.  how 'bout $1,250 here.  SOLD!

 Been on my want list (eh, maybe I should start calling it a fantasy list) for ages.  Congrats to buyer.

3, 4 & 5 all dropped 10% from the listed price.  only reduction.  i'll just hand 'em over to cgc next weekend for slabbing if they don't go, and they'll become auction-bait as well.

i'll take it on thread trumps p.m.'s, but i'll listen to reasonable counters.  returns accepted.  s/h on me domestic, on you otherwise.  p'pal fine.

the 5 slabs are off to auction.  the raws are for sale here.

#3--pretty book, with issues:  cover was detached prior to my ownership, and a dabs of glue on inside spine reattached it.  couple pieces of tape at c.f.   some c.t. at staples.  tape on spine.  o/w pages.  not alot of trading of this book, and coincidentally, the 2 most recent copies are both mid-grade resto, and about a grand

$800 for this'un.

no doubt the reason.  there could be a "large" size comedy book with the same back cover, in and out, but unlikely.
