it should be worth a little than the 5.0 copy.





Just checked and the bid's at $1,833 with 7 days left...wonder how
high the 5.0 copy will go?

Ran across this one that I hadn't looked at for a very long time
while placing reference images to the NOSTOMANIA census.

That is awesome, glad to hear it will be treated well!

BS imo. Original owner should count towards something.
Absolutely! Marty is a board personality, both boards for that matter, and I am sure there are many who would pay at least a slight premium for a genuine "Marty Mann Collection" book.

Actually I do read them on a random basis and it's surprising
how much I forgot over the years...it's always a pleasure to run
across a forgotten treasure.

@martymann I’ve reread books that I got as a kid and it can be really fun. There were references and concepts in the text that went way over my head as a kid. Re-reading them now is always a joy.

@Badger I don’t see why CBCS couldn’t notate on the label “From the private collection of Marty Mann” like they do for the Mr Magik Woo collection. It’s not considered a Pedigree but still gets recognition on the label.

They have offered to do this for me but it would have to be a
sizable quantity at one time...out of reach for me monetarily.

Is that the same for a pedigree? Seems like your collection should easily qualify. At the very least CBCS should make this treasure a sticky. You could edit out any dead weight (my posts for example) and have one of the greatest historical collection hightlighted on the web!!! Clean out some of the older stickys and Move Marty into the Mix!!!!

This was always the best time of the year to go downtown to
W.T. GRANTS...they would have two racks of comics instead of
the usual one and I'd always be able to find "treasures" like
this...

This early 1944 PLASTIC MAN, NN(#2) is one of many in my collection
that I bought at a newsroom that marked the cover with a N or E for
some reason. I only noticed it a few years back when I read about
the date markings made by distributors and/or sellers.
This issue also contains a message inside the back cover about wartime conditions and the Wartime Production Board.

Looking at this cover of TREASURE COMICS made me realize there
could be an entire thread devoted to "CAPES" worn by both Heroes
and Villains.
