Ooops! I didn't realize that you were going for Only graded example. I totally got the Highlander / There can be only one reference. But then in my irrational exuberance, I read HIGH into Highlander and errantly thought you were making a double entendre...My bad as you clearly spelled it out but i clearly didn't read your spelling. So, in that light....

ONLY Graded Example of -

I'm not sure I understand. Wouldn't the "only" copy suggest drek, or if its a hot book, odds are it won't stay the "only" copy in the census for long?

Or am I reading that wrong?
Not every game is for everyone

There's always that one person!!!

LOL

Just kidding @Siggy. The temptation was too hard to resist with a setup like that. But seriously, one man's drek is another man's treasure. That's the joy of our hobby, there is no wrong way to collect!!


It wasn't my intent to ruffle feathers, and I wasn't specifying any one person's book. And I did say "drek" OR "hot book"

The way I read it, it just seems like a person's post could be "disqualified" 30 seconds after it's posted if another book pops up on the census. A viewer sees the post, checks the census, sees 2 books, and wonders what the "rules" are.

I was just looking for clarification if I was missing something.

@Siggy no worries. My feathers weren't too ruffled, but I couldn't resist the urge to make a Highlander comment!! But as far as drek or hot books goes, I'm sure you've already seen examples of books posted here that are neither. And once @earthshaker01 gets wind of this thread, I'm sure there will be more examples that most collectors would never consider drek or hot.

Edit, btw, I am a Highlander nerd!!! I LOVED the original movie and I enjoyed the sequels and the tv series.

Oops! My bad!

I got excited having the only one of something, I jumped at a chance to share it!

I’ve got less than 10 slabs so I feel a little like Charlie Bucket telling his math teacher he only opened two Wonka bars when I look at all these beautiful books!

There are two entries in the census for this book but they are the same book. I cracked it, got another sig, and resubmitted

I don't think so. I agree that if it's a hot book, it won't be the only one on the census. Graded non-keys or drek will pretty much guarantee you a lone census book.

Only copy on the CBCS census. Transparency here: The addition of a census, has me now firmly deciding to leave these in their CBCS slabs. Was tempted to swap these out for CGC's new pedigree labels, but 1) thought about the possibility of a down grade in the regrade 2)as far as CBCS books go, i'm really a fan of the original label (sorry). Won't look uniform with the rest of my books in the run, but hey..

It might be interesting to post when any of these books in the thread are no longer the only book on the census, just to see how long it holds.

I see what’s happening, there’s two listings for this book. One is listed as “akklaim” variant.

Are you maybe putting the 316 in the title instead of separately in the issue box?

I've noticed that so far the lower the grades, the cooler the books. The higher the grades, the "drekkier" the books.

@Scifinator it was the drop down title that contained an extra space and was throwing my search off. So if your searching for “Amazing Spider-Man”, just type it out instead of selecting from the drop down box. Thank you though.

The search is pretty strict. I couldn't find Ms. Marvel because I left out the period, and finding All-New Marvel Now! Point One took some work. My experience was that you have to let the drop-down do the work for you.

I would like to think so. I remember waiting a three hour line and his scheduled nap lol to get the signature. When it was my turn in line and presented the book to him he grinned ear to ear.
