After checking out your collection on myslabbedcomics.com, I would have thought you’d say LB Cole is the best ever.  That Blue Bolt #105 you just put up is awesome.  I wonder if that cover’s why Star Trek directors put a lot of sexy green alien women In episodes?  (Sorry for the Golden Age diversion)

Thanks. Cole has my vote for best cover artist, particularly his sci-fi covers.

Woah, in that condition? That's officially in the Top #6 of the highest comics of its like - there's none above 9.2.

The only grader notes.... "Right Bottom Whole Book Bend"....

Thanks... I bought it new off the racks in '82.

Congratulations and kudos for keeping that copy in such nice shape!  (thumbsu

I've been looking for a high grade copy forever but I'm afraid it's going to run away on price.  Really impressive copy!

was curious if you had it pressed? it's ok to say no, just curious if the "press" didn't take the bend out lol

Had it pressed by a board member that a bunch of us love to send work too.... Just got it back recently and was thinking of asking his opinion about the bend (which I actually don't see in the slab). Imagine climbing above the 9.2 mark.

Ya no worries and it presents great, I guess I was just curious :foryou:

I don't usually press except in extreme cases like a high dollar book and it opportunity arises lol

I did buy a slab the other day that was a 9.4 and had an overlap bend, I guess I was curious if it happened after slabbing or if indeed it is a 9.4.

I'll take it as a 9.4 for the win!

Thanks...

I did a bit of research and not many out there.. a few 7's and 8.'s sold on ebay recently but no data available on GoCollect and not much on the auction sites... good luck with your search.

I have been trying for years to get a 9.8 of this TPB.  I finally got sick of waiting and sent in this unread copy.  Just got it back from CGC and was thrilled that it didn't get lower than a 9.0.  Luckily I still have the copy I bought when it first came out so I can still enjoy the badass Totleben watercolor paintings that grace the introduction.  Even though it's a 9.2 it's still the highest graded copy, however, it is the only one in the census so it is also the lowest graded copy.

I don’t see how anyone gets 9.8’s on these trade paperbacks.  People will pay over $1500 for the Olympus one.  That being said, I think you have the right idea buying it raw and sending it in yourself.

True lol

But is it even worth it sending it in in that condition though ?~
