Another Rick and Morty #1 Spine Wear Edition2776

Collector Thanatos private msg quote post Address this user
Hey everyone,

Still on the hunt for a NM+ copy of Rick and Morty #1 that I would like to eventually get signed by Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland before getting graded. I think my last post is still the closest to perfect that I've found for a decent price. I recently picked this copy up for $25 shipped but it has a lot of spine wear and the corners are "meh". We always talk about spine ticks and color breaking dents/folds but I have a few comics that appear to be perfect from the front but have this wear along the spine edge as seen in these pictures. What causes this kind of wear and how does it affect a comics grade? As always, I appreciate your advice!

Yeah, definitely harder to come by at a good price. I got really lucky with this one from an online store, they realized their mistake when I said I wanted all of them and would only sell me one copy at that price and the others increased to $150 (which is why I think I got the roughest copy of the bunch). The first one I got was from an ebay auction for a little over $80 but seeing the prices now makes me happy I bought when I did.

I wish I wasn't three hours late on this.

It went on sale four weeks ago and sold out in a few minutes.

I really do wonder what the condition of these books were.

who here watches Rick and Morty the cartoon on adult swim?

So far my favorite was EP4 M. Night Shaym-Aliens where they were in a simulation of a simulation inside a simulation that was one big giant simulation. The last 5 seconds of that episode had me laughing hysterically like a hyena for the next 10 minutes

I have two copies of #1 currently, not sure if I want to part with either of them yet. Holding out hope I can get them signed and graded eventually. Rick and Morty is amazing, I don't think I've enjoyed a show this much in years. I'd say my favorite episode thus far has been Season 2 Ep 6 "The Ricks Must Be Crazy" where they go into the microverse that Rick created and flipping the inhabitants the bird means "Peace among worlds" to them hahaha. So fantastic.

On another note, how does this kind of spine wear affect a CBCS grade?

At least you tried You going to just pick up one of the standard covers then? At least those prices seem to be slowly coming back to earth but I imagine once Season 3 kicks off it's going to skyrocket again

Daylight Curfew released the spring R&M collection Friday. Most sold out fast but there's still some left, you can use code HOLLERYO to save 10% for about another hour or so.

There's someone on eBay selling the gold foil shirts for $350 right now.

I've had my eye on the #16 Last of Us variant cover for a while, only ones on eBay are extremely expensive though.

Looking forward to Fanexpo Canada so I can get some Justin Roiland yellow labels.

The season 1 DVD set came with a printed version of "The Good Morty" pamphlet from Close Rick-counters of the Rick Kind that I'm also going to get signed. Wonder if CBCS would slab it?

I finally am caught up with Seasons 1 and Season 2. I do not like the finale. Not happy. ARG!

WHY RICK WHY?!?!?!

BTW if you look up Rick in the galactic federation database he's not found
