In this weeks installment of "Please grade my" (PGM) I present to you:

1969 DC Comics WONDER WOMAN #180
**Triple Cover**
Mid Grade.
Death of Steve Trevor.
Key issue.

An old lady wrote a small grocery list in cursive writing on inside most inner rear cover (if that makes any sense at all). I hope she got her dye, large rollers and lipstick. Cool book that tells a cool story.

Cover cleaned. There was terrible staining on covers, dirt, oil, and debris. Small tear upper left corner of frontmost cover. Wavy bends and creases on all 3 covers, scratches and color breaking creases. An old lady wrote a small grocery list in cursive writing on inside most inner rear cover (if that makes any sense at all). I hope she got her dye, large rollers and lipstick. Edgewear on right side and bottom edge with some tiny creasing. Centerfold attached at both staples. Spine has bumps, edgewear, back cover has a tear folded over, some sort of paper scuff from another book underneath, several wavy bends, and few crease lines. Dark staining/scuff on back cover lower left corner. Stains could not be completely removed without being too invasive or aggressive. Staples not rusty.

That is not only very cool, but I can also say, I have never seen a triple cover error. Two, yes.....three, no.

Wow! thanks for posting, myke.

All three covers will be graded, as well as the inside of the book (but that doesn't get noted on the label). Based on your description and photos, the second cover will receive the highest grade, and that's generally the real grade the book will get. The inner cover has a shopping list so it's probably a 4.0 at best, and the outside cover has tears and other issues as well. So I'm going to say the book will grade somewhere in the 6.0 to 7.0 range (but difficult to tell since we can't really see the whole of the second cover). A very cool book!

Nice Book! Only had one book with more than one cover in my time collecting. Would have been very happy with a triple cover WW.

Very nice...Curious why someone would write on the inside of the cover. My folks would write on anything laying around especially when talking on the phone and need to write a phone number / address. But odd to open a comic (or anything) in order to write something.

Makes me think of the movie "Christmas Story" where Ralph hides a Red Ryder ad in his moms magazine...maybe this was someones Christmas list that the kid would see at the end of the comic and "be tricked" into buying some of that stuff for his mom

@CLT I voted your post up, not because of what you said but because I'm a Bumble the Abominable Snow Monster fan!
