Well, I am almost done with this game.  I have 3 more books to submit, all FF.  I think I am going to send them to Joeypost this time just to try something new and see what happens.  It is not really about the money.  Is this a taboo subject?  Maybe oops...

well, it was steep, but i do love the new upgrade.  the under-9.0 list shortened by one today.

hmmm very interesting.  A 9.0 list for these old books is great.  I think for me an 8.0 list is good enough.  Besides I got the kirby sig on my FF13 and you dont just discard a book like that no matter what the grade.  I am just not a very serious collector.  KirbyJack and I will go cry in the corner now.  That book looks awesome but I do find it interesting that there is still mini dirt on it.  It must be a very hard issue to find.  I like it a lot!

The almost invisible subscription crease killed mine.

It's just a peculiarity of the scan.  Here's another:

The QP on the Don and Maggie is just exceptional …. I would actually prefer it to several of the copies that have higher grades, which aren't many. Congrats, Parker …. I know you must be stoked. GOD BLESS....

Seeing Jim’s FF 13 was one of the earliest jaw droppers I experienced on the boards.

i've loved it unconditionally--but the lure of that "9"...

at the urging [nagging?] of kj, i kept lengthening my ff run out later and later, 'til i got 'em complete thru kirby's work [102], and even added his partial book [108].  here are the books that don't cut 9.-something muster.   i hope to upgrade a few, but will never get 'em all, i'm afraid.
