All True Romance!

Last time I did a sales thread I let one of these go really cheap. Turns out they aren't quite so easy to find! Live and learn.

Or maybe don't learn, because I have a feeling I'm still pricing these too cheap.

But here's #25, 26 and 27, - $65 each, or $175 for all three. 

All True Romance #25 - 4.0 - dust shadows

All True Romance #26 - 2.5 - spine split at top, some tanning

All True Romance #27 - 4.5

SOLD!!

Girls' Romances #52 - 4.5 - $49

One of my absolute favorite romance comics and covers, period. And one that is gaining some steam. Awesome greaser cover with moody wash background. So great.

This one is just a nice, solid copy. There is one issue - there are some light scratches on the hair of the male figure, as seen in the scans.

I love this one! Which is why I paid through the nose for a high grade copy, freeing up this awesome undercopy!

 

SOLD!

Love Romances #27 - 2.0 - $70

This has spine roll, and there's a small tear through the spine which goes through the book. The right edge of the fc has some tanning and a little brittleness, and some pieces have flaked off. Inside pages are actually supple enough. 

This is an awesome Empire State Building cover by Al Hartley. I have no idea what this is "worth," but I know how much it will take to get it out of my hands!

My Own Romance #50 - 3.5 - $39

Great gloss and color on cover. There's a tear up by the CCA stamp Page quality is actually really nice, except a few pages the bottom corner got some sun and a couple little pieces came off of a few - doesn't affect art. Not really sure how it happened since otherwise the PQ is really nice. Jay Scott Pike art throughout.

Revealing Romances #6 - 1.5 - $15

Cover is detached, staples are rusty, book is dirty. Someone did not care for this the way it deserved!

But it does have that cool Ace painted cover!

Betty and Veronica #41 - CGC 7.0 - $840 shipped

This is tied with two other copies for second highest graded behind a single 7.5.

Classic cover by the great Harry Lucey.

I'm just guessing randomly at the price here, I don't even have GPA, so it's possible I just shot myself in the face. But hopefully this is a good deal for both you and me. 

A couple notes: I have no idea if this has been pressed, I just know I didn't do anything to it, it's exactly as I received it. I have closeups of some of the defects - I can't see this getting a higher grade than it has. Big things are a small tear and crease bottom front right, small piece out of cover above logo, some overhang of fc and some overspray on back. Some slight tanning by the looks?

There are some faint smudge lines on the case itself I never noticed until just now. Not sure if they will clean off, but I don't want to mess with it.

My Own Romance #13 - 2.5 - $25

52 page pages from Timely Comics!

This one has some small kinks in it where it was bent at some point. Those could come out. The main issue is the top of the front cover got whammied with something at some point, so it's quite tan. Back cover has some broad tanning as well. FC has one chip out, small tear, and the inside of top fc has some foxing. 

The rest of the book is solid though.

Okay, I have run out of steam, so I will try to finish up tomorrow night.

Still to come: L.B. Cole, All-American Men of War #89 with the Lichtenstein swipes, Matt Baker, more romance, and a weird anti-communism/pro-democracy propaaganda giveaway from the 50's that even the people on the boards here didn't seem to know a lot about. And so much more.

Plus! You can still get a chance to spark up a bromance with me, free with any purchase! No promises it will take off, but you never know. Besties?!

Okay, round two. I'm having some computer issues, so I may not get through everything tonight, but we'll see.

First, for anyone interested in those Journey Into Mystery books, if you buy both you can get the pair for $350!

And if you're on the fence, I should tell you that there has been a Thor movie announced, so get these before the movie speculation drives prices crazy!!

 

And now, on to the new stuff.

Girls in Love #57 - 2.5 - $45

This is what they call an "ebay 5.0." And by they, I mean the ebay seller who sold this to me. 

What wasn't mentioned in that listing is the sad fact that there are two small holes punched completely through the book (arm and pants pocket of the guy on fc). There are also two other small holes that go partway through the book. I initially suspected a BB-gun and target practice, but one of the holes is only on some interior pages, so I have to reluctantly conclude this was the work of a bored kid wielding either a pencil or possibly a screwdriver. 

On the other hand, it presents really well despite this, and it's a great, late Matt Baker cover. Not one of those late covers where some inker messed things, up, one where's it's obviously Matt Baker. :x

I also like to think that this is Clark Kent and Lana Lang in Smallville. Sure, he calls her Nancy, but otherwise... you all see it, right?

Just trying to cut my losses.

 

SOLD!

Millie the Model #64 - 3.5 - $45

Great colors, some gloss, great DeCarlo art. This one has a dust shadow on bottom edge. The right edge also got wet at some point - don't worry, it's dry now! - so it's a little wavy.

 

SOLD
