See?  Romita!!!

His signature being mostly printed certainly helps make them very clear and legible. It’s too bad I only have one of his signatures. I hope to change that and get him to sign my 39.

Yeah, Len Wein the same way. Romita even signs page onlys in the best possible place.

I've been collecting ASM 1-300 for a few years now and I'm about 40% complete...🙄

My goal is to get if possible...

#100-300 in cgc 9.8,

#50-100 in 9.0-9.8,

#20-49 in 8.0-9.6 cgc

#1-20 in 4.0-9.0 cgc

 

I was able to buy a few from fellow CGC forum members...Hopefully I can find some more for sale here at the forum 👍😁, Auction/Ebay fees just add too much to the prices...🤬

I created an art print with ASM covers 1-100 and another 101-200 and it helps me keep track of my comics...  I also put it in a video/slideshow for my other ASM collertor friends...  I hope you find it useful as well...  you can see it here:

John Romita seems to be approximately 1,000,000,000 times more careful about his signature placement than Stan Lee ever was.  Don't get me wrong, I have no problem with the placement of both signatures on your gorgeous 8.5 ... but let's just say I've never seen a poorly-placed Romita signature, and the same simply can't be said for Stan the Man.

Romita has to have one of the cleanest and most well placed sigs out there!  Haven't seen too many bad ones yet.

This is my favorite back cover of all time! Interesting trivia - the official nba logo was designed after Jerry West.

It had been bothering me that I didn’t have a Green Goblin appearance anywhere in my tiny ASM collection. 

Resolved.

I lost several pics when my last laptop puked, but I do have a few pics of some of my Romita signed Spidey copies. I'm happy with the signature placement on all of the copies I own.

I have around a half dozen more that I'll need to take new pics of when I can get to it. Here's a later Silver Age Spidey :)

Did the Twin Cities collection have 2 7's?  9.6 and 9.8?

Looking at the scans they appear to be different , not a CPR book.

Quite the collection he is selling this month

Don't know who's collection this is, but pretty sick when his ASM #3 CGC 9.4 Twin Cities copy is one of the "low grade" issues in the collection :whatthe:

Don't like the wrap on it, was offered on the market this year for 35k however, wouldn't surprise me if it broke that with the way that issues has been going.

Just repeat after me there is no 11, there is no 11 :P
