Here's a cool issue of Marvel Mystery. Issue #19 has a bunch of cool stories & art and another eye popping Alex Schomburg cover. Posted this beauty in the Rare High Grade thread earlier. This was one of my four Timely pick-ups at SDCC...

It's a raw book graded by Metropolis as 8.5 with the opinion that it may have had a very light cover cleaning. PQ is off white and supple.

Prices on books of this caliber are a judgment call. That said, early Marvel Mysterys with Schomburg covers in grade tend to bring a premium nowadays. Currently I'd estimate the value of this book at between $3000 to $4000 as currently graded.

That's my honest assessment. Of course, every collector's mileage varies on desirability, but in hand it's a crazy nice book, very clean & great color.

My sole non-Timely purchase at SDCC was one of "Busy" Arnold's Quality titles, HIT #9, with a stunning Lou Fine cover. This book is an early CGC holdered high grade (8.5) with White page quality...

One of my Timely acquisitions from SDCC has a weird kinda Grimm's fairy tale vibe to it. Alas, the real villain in Marvel Mystery #80 is the haberdashery. It's the Mad Hatter's attire that's truly cringeworthy! In spite of that, this terrific issue has a marquee appearance by Captain America, sharp color and registration, nice PQ topped off by high grade. What's not to like?...

My newest aquisiton.

Collector CatmanAmerica private msg quote post Address this user
My final 2018 SDCC Timely acquisition is another great issue of Cap, this one with a Syd Shores cover. His male villains frequectly have large noses (maybe Syd Shores was frightened as a youngster by a jimmy Durante performance). Anyway The Parrot keeps his torture victims in cages, which makes for a pretty creepy cover! This copy of Captain America #63 is an older label CGC graded 9.2 (OW/W)...

Great acquisitions all around Cat. Stunners. Are you going to have them slabbed?

Thanks, Sagii!

Two of the five books I acquired at SDCC are already slabbed, at least one of the others will be as well, and that will be through CBCS.

@Sagii there is another one on ebay for 125 that looks really nice at first glance. But has some issues when looking closer. A stain or two at bottom, some bent edges that may or may not be able to be straighten.
It's a tough book in high grade due to the inner comics is much smaler.than outer cover.

Jack Cole definitely had a GIANT sized inspiration when it came to skulls and claws. Here are two of my favorite examples of Cole's sense of exaggerated proportionality and artistic flexibility...

@martymann Love seeing GA interiors as well, Marty (please post more). Also, many of your comics were bought by you personally off the racks, which is doubly envious!

Wish I could display interiors of comics in my collection, but most copies are high grade and/or pedigree books in holders. For instance, this sweet copy of Plastic Man #7 was originally Edgar Church's copy. No plans on cracking it out any time soon, but I'm confident the interiors are glorious (you can even get a hint of it through the cover!)...




I'm not sure how CBCS moderators feel about scanning pages from reprints readily available on-line from eBay vendors. Occasionally I acquire reprint copies of slabbed books in my collection for personal reading and as display copies to pass around during GA history lectures at conventions, but I wouldn't post anything here that might violate board rules.
