Just the one for me. I think I've seen it somewhere before... This auction house provided a back cover scan. Kudos to them.

Beautiful book. It's much nicer in hand than the MCS scans.

No idea why I bid on this one. Twitchy auction finger, I guess. Maybe I will trade it for something I actually collect or sell it. I don't have any other FF in my collection. Except for a FF Big Little Book

Good grab. That’s a highly regarded FF story. I don’t collect FF & I would have thrown in a low bid.

I think he'd pretty much have to be, being Ice Cream Man and all. 😉

UPS notified me that they delivered a DELL/Gold Key collection I won off of e-bay. Unfortunately, I won’t be home until Friday to open it. 😔

Have I told you about the time I dropped off 3,000 comics at SDCC? Scifinator private msg quote post Address this user
just got back some slight upgrades to my permanent collect...Now, if you have some upgrades to these that you'd be willing to sell to me or put in the June 10th CBCS 10th Anniversary Auction at CBCS, please do let me know.

@GAC What do you have that you'd be willing to part with? Doesn't have to be one-to-one trade. I am willing to take a couple of books that make the value equitable.

We have 9.4's of a few of those Surfer issues at MCS you could crossover. If you wanted to work something out direct without the MCS fees I can certainly recall them.

How could this book only be missing page 1, as per the label? Last time I checked < insert smart-ass remark here > comic pages always had 2 sides. Now I'm wondering what's going on with the 2 pages that are attached to the other half of the wrap. 🤔 Are there really 4 pages missing? Well, says I, the Grader's Notes will have more details because of the brevity required on labels. Nope. According to the CGC grader(s) the only page missing is page 1. What's up with that?

I'm no expert by any means, but I think major flaws such as missing multiple pages should be noted. Maybe the page is there but it's blank 🤔. Am I being unduly picky?

It's a mystery (to my feeble brain anyway). Maybe I should crack it open to see what's going on. My winning bid was only $12 (before the 250% buyer's premium of $29 was added).

Maybe I should leave it a mystery just in case I need something to lose sleep over.

One possibility is that there is an ad on the flip side that doesn't count as a story page.

@poka friends of mine bought 14 books including the gangsters can't win #2 6.0. Paid 3750 if I remember right. They are the guys who bought and sold the Bobby blue collection. They made about 2 million off that collection

A shoebox. Some of the smaller ones I might bag and put in a short box but most of the time, it's an old shoebox.
