Sweet.

Was it a large selection, or just a few late run AMFs?

It's definitely prior to Pearl Harbor, but I don't know if the cover story is WWII related, or just some randos with planes.

Maybe i'm confusing it with #9? I know that one is also pre Pearl Harbor, but a Nazi is depicted on that cover, making it a more clear cut case.

Thanks! Hopefully it'll still be a census-buster if I ever send it in for slabbing!

This one is from the Billy Wright pedigree. Was the longest extended bidding time 'duel' i've ever had to go through to acquire a book through Comic Connect. One of the few books in the Pedigree to have Mr. Wright's name on it.

@Sagii Ok, bear with me a second.

I wasn't familiar with Centaur comics before this thread. I'd heard of them, but I never really researched them. So when I saw you post this earlier, I had kind of thought that "Billy Wright" was printed (not written) on the cover.

When I looked at it again in the calendar thread, I noticed it was smudged. So that got me thinking, which is almost never a good thing. Is that his signature? If it is, I can't help but wonder if CBCS (Beckett) could verify it. Since it is his pedigree, I can't imagine that it isn't or that verifying it (if possible) would even add any value to it. I'm not suggesting you do that (I wouldn't), but I'm curious if you have entertained the idea.

Edit - I also had no idea who Buddy Wright was until today.
Edit 2 - just to make clear, I know BSA probably can't verify it. Think of this like a "what if?" scenario.

@Jesse_O Hey Buddy! Well, on the comics Pedigree site it does mention that a small number of his books have his signature on them. The collection was assembled in the 30's to 40's so though i'm sure some hand writing samples could verify through an expert that it's his signature, i think it's just a 'given' being that many kids at that time did that sort of thing on their comic books.

There is a cool active Pedigree Thread right here on the CBCS forum.

In a sense because it's not one of those pedigrees that collectors rely on writing, date stamps or coding for identifying them, it makes this one one of a special few in this particular collection that does.

I never considered the Beckett angle as a counter 'benefit' to potentially reholdering it with CBCS as opposed to CGC's new Pedigree label. But it's certainly worth mulling over.

Now look what you've gone and done!!!

@circumstances @Sagii you both have really awesome collections. Distinguished tastes if you will. I only have a handful of comics that I would consider cool, but I scroll through this thread and it just leaves me in awe. Not just in awe of the books, but the passion you both bring to the collections. It's very cool, so by all means "keep 'em coming".
