Greetings,

I'm listing several Bronze Age books from my collection for sale on this thread.

Condition and Grading

I'll describe each condition as best I can with photos, I'm not experienced with detecting restoration but I have checked each book, if a book you purchase from me is found to have restoration that I did not catch, the book maybe sent back for a refund.

As for grading, I only have experience submitting modern books for grading, I respect and understand that it is completely different than grading differences between 8.0 and 9.0. Some books will have scans, but scanner no longer so works I took pictures in its place. Please see photos for condition and feel free to ask any questions.

All books will be well packed.

The Terms

Please no hall of shamers or probies.

Payment

I will only ship to mainland U.S. only and I only accept Pay Pal (USD).

$10.00 for shipping, $2 per additional book.

First timestamped  :takeit: gets it. 

Feel free to ask any question before submitting the   :takeit: smilie.

Thank you for looking!

B

I'm not sure how to grade this one, so I took a bunch of pictures. The spines shows a lot of stress on both the front and back. The front cover also has several color breaking folds.

Batman #227 Very Good range with Off-White pages

$100 + 10.00 Shipping :news: Sold to Wipple

Neal Adams cover. Detective Comics #31 cover swipe.

This copy is complete but does show significant wear and reduction in cover reflectivity. This book also has it's share of spine stress and abraded corners. There is no staple rust.

DISCLAIMER
I purchased this book from my LCS when I was younger, consequently, I used a cloth lightly dampened with lens cleaning solution to remove one of the finger prints  from the cover. This was foolish of me and I would not do this today. I cannot recall exactly where this, I believe this took place around the "Gothos Mansion" lettering, I do not see any damage that was done. I took additional photos in the spoiler thread, I realize the piece is not in the best shape but I cannot sell this in good consciousness without disclosing this.
