I'm continuing to consolidate my collection a little bit and I'm still doing some house renovations so it inspired me to pull another 50+ books.

 

I'll probably have to do 3 sessions, this morning till about 11:30 EST, Tonight from 8 pm till about 10 pm and the rest tomorrow night at 8.

The slabs have not been listed before, some of the raw books were listed previously at higher prices so they should be bargains now. I added them in because some of the slabbed books are a little more expensive and I wanted books in all price ranges in the thread..

 

The raw books have not been cleaned or pressed.

As for the slabs,I submitted most of the books and many were pressed by Joey Post. I marked the ones that I know for sure were not pressed or cleaned (because I don't have all of my books pressed or cleaned).

I'm going to do shipping at my cost to be fair to those who are out of the Country or across the Country or near me. If you need a shipping quote, just ask. I use regional boxes whenever it's practical and I pay for private insurance and if you spend more than $200, I will pay for the signature that my insurance requires.

I accept Paypal, Checks or Money Orders. Payment is due in 7 days unless we have made arrangements before you hit the Take it sign. I expect payment within 7 days unless we have made other arrangements before you take a book.

First take it wins. In case of a tie, the one visible on the boards wins.

 

Returns for any reason, but the book must be returned in the same manner it was shipped within 7 days of receipt. Return shipping costs are to be paid by the buyer unless I made an error..

 

No list people please.

 

As for time payments.

Time payments are accepted, I require a 20% non refundable downpayment is due in 3 days, after that you have 3 months to complete the payments, just give me a schedule you will follow before taking the book.

For the slabbed books, I have scans of all the slabs, front and back, but my scanner is an older model that will fit slabs and in some cases it washes out the color so I also took pictures of some of the books because I think the colors came out closer.

Back cover scans are in spoilers.

Action Comics #242 CGC 3.0 ow/w, The first appearance of Brainiac! Plus the first appearance of the City of Kandor.

A note about this issue, it's very difficult to find a decent looking copy in lower grade, usually the purples are faded, look pink, or the book has a lot of white lines showing pages are most often Cream/ow. I've always loved this issue, and this is one of the nicest copies I've had, but I was lucky enough to just buy an upgrade from a friend. Bin is $1200  $1150 Sold to Norrin's Lawyer.

Magnets :)

I found a few that I had hidden, so I do have a few doubles, but not many. Pick one for each purchase. Once these are gone, they are gone, I don't think I'll be getting any more.

Adventure #190, 1953


This book was published during a relatively scarce period for Superheroes. There are only 7 copies on the CGC census.

The book is one os the rather scarce 20 pages issues (10 leaves on each side of the center staple, plus the covers)

This issue has a very slight overhang at the top and there is some wear front and back. The color is nice, with a small “invisible” stain on the front and some small tears near the staples.and there is quite a bit of non color breaking creasing including a long center bend (subscription crease).

The grade now is VG- (3.5) maybe a drop better

Bin is $60 Sold to Tfitz

Wups,  I misremembered it.   That   was ANOTHER   cartoon   villain  mouse.   That  catchphrase  is  from  a  Pixie  and  Dixie  and  Mr.  Jinx  cartoon.
Mark  of the Mouse (think  Zorro)

Turns  out  Klondike  Kat's  nemesis  was  Savoir-Faire,  whose  catchphrase  was   "Savoir-Faire  is  EVERYWHERE!"
