@brysb I need to be stopped. In the last 2w, I bought a NM+ Blue Lizard, a NM-/NM Platinum Raw, a Sealed (seemingly NM or better) Diamond TPB and a raw Diamond TPB.

I've got doubles of some pretty rare books for trade/sale.

CGC 9.2 Diamond TPB
Raw Diamond TPB (8.5-9.0 estimate)
Raw Blue Lizard (9.8 Candidate, but foxing on rear cover)
Raw Blue Lizard (9.8 Candidate)

As long as you are happy that is all that matters.

I'm still trying to convince myself to bite the built on a Blue Lizard. I had the biggest grin on my face the day I found both McFarlane signed/stamped covers at my LCS for $10 each. I wish I had something to offer for trade but it looks like you are much further along in the collection than I am lol!

Great collection!

@bythegram The Blue Lizards are the coolest. I even have a Copper Lizard, the reverse of the Blue Lizard (all yellow, no blue).


Also, there are 3 Signed & Stamped Covers (2 greens):

Just a heads up, the current Black Widow series (‘Web of Black Widow’) has a cover swipe of this book as a variant cover for #1.

@Ladic No, there was never a Gold Bagged copy. Any Gold Bagged you see are fake.

@00slim There are hundreds of Homages, but I stick the the McFarlane ones only. There are more than enough. Ha!

@Ladic Yes, it is 100% fake. MCS does not verify what their customers want to sell. Be careful with them, I've seen books mislabeled, and sold for the wrong prices. They also can't give you additional photos ever, and sometimes only show the front cover of a book. I'm not a fan of theirs.

If the viagra is working you should be well over a 9.8. xkonk private msg quote post Address this user
Going through my boxes, I was reminded that Deadpool Back in Black 5 is a Spidey 1 swipe. Unfortunately I guess I sold it already.

@dartelum Thanks, and that's a cool book, but I don't collect non-McFarlane homages. There are just too many.

Is one more rare than the other? Mine all seem to be the purple webbing. I am also wondering if you know when CGC started noting the “blue lizard”. I already had one of mine in an original blue holder when I first remember hearing about it.

CGC stopped noting the Blue Lizard, they did previously. Only CBCS nots it on the label today.

I believe the Green with the Silver Webbing is the Poly-Bagged version. Roughly the same value.

@BigRonnie Very nice collection. I don't have anywhere near as many as you do, here's the couple I have. I may pick up a Gold UPC at some point, I don't know lol

Collector BigRonnie private msg quote post Address this user
@mattness Thank you very much. I believe the Gold UPC, Diamond TPB, Platinum Cover and UK/Amiga are real investment-grade books at high grades. The Gold UPC you see in my set, I bought from WalMart originally, and never cracked the cover. 9.8 candidate for sure. Going to submit it at NYCC along with a raw Platinum Cover I just picked up. Also submitting 2 Diamond TPBs, one of which is still sealed and has no color rubs anywhere. I'm hoping for another 9.6. We'll see.

@mattness @PhantomEwan @Siggy @xkonk @dartelum @Ladic @bythegram @00slim @brysb :

Im trying to get my hands on more of these, please LMK if you find one in the wild:

Spider-Man Torment Trade Paperback - Diamond Distributors Edition
Print Run: 700
Graded: 9 (2 x 9.6, 2 x 9.4, 3 x 9.2, 1 x 8.5 & 1 x 7.5)

This was an incentive book, given to the 700 top comic sops selling Spider-Man in 1990. When the book was shipped, it was heat shrink-wrapped too tightly, and most/all copies were damaged. The vast majority of copies have bad color rub around the edges of the front and back cover. This book is notoriously difficult to find in high grades (CGC 9.6 is top grade). There are 4 on eBay now ranging in price from $190 to $450, but they are all beat up with color rubs. Every one. They are VG/F to F/VF at best. There isn't a NM- or better book available at the moment.

I'm up to 4 copies (CGC 9.6, CGC 9.2, high grade raw (Sealed), and a F/VF raw copy). The sealed copy will be submitted for grading next Friday. Hoping for a 9.6 or better. I can't see anything wrong with it, but the plastic is still on, so I can't be sure. We will see.
