Hey everyone,

As part of my effort to pare down my collection, I've decided to sell the handful of ECs I've accumulated over the last 20 years.

I purchased all of these books raw and had them slabbed at the beginning of this year. None of them have been pressed while in my possession.

The main reason I only have a handful as opposed to a bunch is because I'm very particular when I purchase raw books. With this noted, none of these books have the following defects unless called out:

  • Loose or detached staples
  • Rusty staples
  • A loose or detached centerfold
  • Spine splitting
  • Soiling, water damage, stains or fingerprints
  • Tears
  • Chipping or dents
  • Major creases
  • Writing on the front cover
  • Any printing defects (printers creases, smudges, etc.)
  • Any interior defects unless noted (tears, missing page corner chips, etc.)

For those of you who collect ECs, you know that being this strict (along with looking for copies in Fine or better) somewhat limits your purchasing opportunities. :smile:

Here's a list of the books I'm selling:

  • Crime Suspenstories #9 CGC 6.0 Fine SOLD
  • Crime Suspenstories #14 CGC 6.0 Fine SOLD
  • Crime Suspenstories #15 CGC 9.0 VF/NM SOLD
  • Haunt of Fear #19 CGC 7.0 FN/VF
  • Haunt of Fear #21 CGC 7.5 VF- SOLD
  • Shock Suspenstories #3 CGC 7.0 FN/VF SOLD
  • Shock Suspenstories #17 CGC 8.0 VF SOLD
  • Tales From the Crypt #29 CGC 7.5 VF- SOLD
  • Tales From the Crypt #38 CGC 6.0 Fine SOLD
  • Vault of Horror #15 CGC 7.0 FN/VF SOLD
  • Vault of Horror #36 CGC 8.0 VF SOLD
  • Weird Fantasy #11 CGC 7.0 FN/VF

I charge exact shipping to ship these books insured via USPS Priority Mail, and the shipping cost will depend on your location (I'm willing to ship anywhere in the world, but know there may be shipping restrictions in light of what's going on right now).

I accept PayPal, checks or money orders.

The first :takeit: gets the book, but I'll also listen to offers via PM. I do not accept returns on CGC-graded books, but will work with you should there be an issue with a purchase.

Please no probies and HOSers, and thanks for looking!

Next up is Crime Suspenstories #14 CGC 6.0 Fine - $220 $200 SOLD

Purchased raw from Motor City Comics (if I remember correctly) back in 2001!

Graders notes:

  • light staining to cover
  • light wear all corners of cover
  • moderate spine stress lines to cover
  • multiple crease left top of front cover breaks color

I'm not exactly sure what's meant by "staining" in these notes, as there are no water stains on the book (I would not have bought it otherwise)...the only stains I see are some tan spots.

Art, you indeed are a “picky” collector (like me) and you have a very good eye; I’m sure these EC books will be stellar! :foryou:

I'm really sorry, but I need to take a quick dinner break...took me more time than anticipated to get this sales thread going.

Will be back in a bit with the last five books...
