can you show a picture of what it is talking about? I don't see it in the Laird Sign.

CPG has it at $160. With the rare Eastman "pedigree" who knows, it's a one of a kind.

Some things don't have a price guide value...yet. Especially when they are one-of-a-kind. I honestly wouldn't sell it for less than $3000-$5000. It's a piece of history imo.

It's my most treasured TMNT item, that, and my Mint, on card, Shogun Triceraton with purple weapons!

NOW I'm bragging.

Those are STUPID RIDICULOUS hard toys to track down. Even harder mint on card.

Shogun Triceraton: $700-$800
Shogun Shoate: $400
Scratch: $1400
Hot Spot: $500

That's it? That's the "rare" error? Yeah, that's worth it


It is cool that it was his personal copy, tho.

@Stelbert_Stylton The "worth" comes from the fact that only 500 with the messed up blue error ever existed.

But why is there demand for something so stupid? Because: fanboys.

Cool, I see it now. How one is white and the other is light blue.

When I get home, I will have to check my copy.

Anything rare will always be desirable. TMNT #3 is already a high demand book without the error. It just adds more to the collector's chase if they want to track down an error copy.

Everyone collects differently. I think Pokemon is stupid, but millions of people are obsessed with it.

Good God, that's the truth. I've never seen so many grown men in my life who played Pokemon when I was in the Navy. They were hardcore about it too.

Pokemon "is" stupid. Now, Yu Gi Oh on the other hand kicks butt.

Thank you. I spent years tracking that down. Then more years trying to get him to sign it. Then a year for a frame. It's been a journey .

For movie serial fans there are a variety of interesting collectibles ranging from lobby cards and posters to props and sales kits, but one of the holy grails for most serial collectors is the limited edition Valley of The Cliffhangers, an oversized book privately published by the late Jack Mathis in the mid-1970's.

This gold embossed leatherette bound, fully illustrated volume covers the entire history of Republic Studios serial unit with detailed entrees and synopsis of every production. An amazing labor of love, Mathis's magnificent book is highly prized by serial lovers and exceedingly rare. My copy...





There's a supplement that's also desirable, but less elaborate and much less rare. Both are a prized part of my collection.

That's an interesting piece. I collect movie posters and try to get in person autographs so the serial world has crossed into my domain once or twice and I've only HEARD of this book once in 30 years.

Great find
