Yes.  Its the fairytale story.  And She named the dragon lockheed in the fairytale .

Technically its a 1st appearance within a story for Lockheed( wagging his tail beside her).

Just joined the chat rooms..Love Bronze Age. I picked this one up off eBay for 120 bucks raw. It was my first submission. I guessed a 9.6 but was happy anyhow. More to follow.. I have 3 Bronze Age X-men at CGC right now that are going to score much lower. Like anyone cares haha go ahead and roast me.

No roasting from me. You found an unrestored NM on eBay. I certainly never have.  (thumbsu

Thanks! It’s my best book.. the seller I didn’t really understand why he wouldn’t slab it and why he was selling it raw for so cheap. I still don’t get it🤔

As someone who didn't collect until the late 90s, what were some of those books priced during the 1980s? $5 a piece?

I remember early 90s late 80s they were on the wall behind the counter. I can vouch for that.

No, the New X-men were the most popular comic of the 80's so back issues were relatively expensive for the time. I recall I paid about $35 for the X-men 94 at an auction in 82 or 83 which was a good price because it was valued at around $70 NM in the Overstreet guide at the time. The 101 and 129 I bought in the mid 90's for about $20 and $10-15 maybe. The 117 and 140 were bought in the 80's in the 5 to 12$ range though.

Some folks will avoid the huge turnaround and others just want to sell because they need money. When you submit to CGC you have to invest approx $45 for a book like this. Shipping there. Shipping back including insurance. And then down the road you'll get your book back and be able to sell. So there's time and investment to consider. For a collector like yourself it's a no-brainer - you're getting a great book at a great price. For others there might be a few other things involved. And believe it or not, a lot of folks don't even know about CGC and third party grading. They just collected comics.
