Ed's X-Men Run11483

TRA LA LA esaravo private msg quote post Address this user
My collecting goal for the last few years has been to complete my X-Men run - that I started as a teenager - before I turned 60 this April. I accomplished my goal about a month or two ago, and I had a lot of help from several of you on these CBCS forums (especially MC). I thank you all for that.

A few people said that I should post scans showing the run. And since I am a high school teacher on my "April" vacation this week, I figured why not? So here's my X-Men collection.

This one's a bit beat-up, but will be on its way to CBCS for slabbing very soon.

If I get that 1k from the trumpster, I might put that towards an XMen 1.

Won this one raw in an eBay auction a while back and had it graded.

Bought this one graded, and like the #1, the price kept rising so fast, I had to just stop thinking about it and just buy the best copy I could find and afford. I thought this 3.5 looked better than most 4.0's and 4.5's that I saw for sale.

@esaravo nice number 4. Yep I agree some books graded lower then a 4.0 present better and the price is better too 👍

Somehow it took me years to obtain a copy of this issue, and then in a span of about four months, I ended up with 3 copies! This is the one I sent in for grading.

Issue 7 always makes me laugh, with the title block having that small remnant of the wings from issue 3 still visible...and issue 4, with the SCARLET witch in green no less....quality control wasn't quite on point back then!

@Darkseid_of_town - When I was first looking at #7's and saw that remnant wing on the "X," I thought some kid must have drawn on the cover! Then I saw it on all of them.

I saw it there and wondered how they got it on issue 7 but the others in between lack the artifact , always puzzled me

First of two books that I bought around 40 years ago that I submitted and came back trimmed. It definitely bummed me out. It also makes me wonder if I have any other raws that might be trimmed too.

Second trimmed book that I submitted for grading. Picked up an untrimmed copy that arrived today.
