@Bronte - If it was a Neal Adams signature, or another person associated with the book, CBCS should have sent you an email asking you if you wanted to submit the signature for verification so you could get a red label. It hasn’t happened to me, but I know other posters have said that it happened to them.

@esaravo

Thank you very much for your input. I'll see if PGX gives any useful information. If they dont, I'll try to leave it be and just chuck the book in a corner.

@Bronte - No problem. I just submitted that same comic to CBCS in August, after I had it signed by Adams and O’Neill with a CBCS witness. But mine won’t grade as high as your copy. I bought it new off the rack and probably read it twenty or more times! You have a great copy. Let me know if you ever want to trade it away.

I generally never let go of anything I acquire, but if that changes, I'll let you know. =)

Not cool. Can CBCS pressing chime in?

I don't often share my new comics, but I really like the ones I got from Poka today!!! They are the Capt. Savage and the Brother Power. I also received my copy of "Stan's Soapbox Collection" from Hero Initiative today. The other two I got last week sometime.

The Batman was an 8.5 from PGX prior to press.
The Hulk was 2.0 from CGC prior to press.

My acquisitions this week. The FF fills one of those aggravating holes that's been in the collection for years. The X-Men are part of my on-again-off-again process of replacing stolen comics.

I like your pick ups.

I have been snatching up Sentry #1s and UF #4 whenever I see them in NM. They are good for trade material. I have been hunting for a NS version of the Sentry 1, not sure if the exist or not.

When I get back home and have time I may have to start a new thread on this. Needless to say I am a little disappointed after waiting 9 months.

Thank you sir. Im not too familiar with the Marvel Knights line other than the Punisher stuff. I thought there were some early MK newsstand books, but I couldn't be too sure. By the time that imprint came out I had my driver's license and started going to the comic store instead of walking up to the drug store to check out the spinner rack.

I wonder how many other people caught the fact that it was She-Hulk #1 in John Derek's hand? When I bought She-Hulk #1 waaaaay back in 1980 I remember being in the car with my mom and explaining to her that She-Hulk was Bruce Banner's (Hulk's) cousin and he gave her a transfusion and then she became She-Hulk. Ha, my mom just listened to me but I knew she didn't care about the topic. Then soon after, the People Magazine appeared in our home and I said to my mom "look, John Derek the movie actor has She-Hulk #1". From my perspective John Derek was a prominent well known actor & if he liked comic books then that made it just a little more acceptable for me to admit that I liked comic books.

I've never been ashamed of buying comics, but I don't mention it to most people because I don't want to hear their stories about what they used to own and what their mothers threw away. One guy swore he used to own a Thor #1 from the 60's. Was it an annual or a Giant-size? Not according to him.

You'll note that several of those X-Men covers feature Kitty Pryde.

And yes, having comics stolen stinks. It happened during a move. I'd mostly gotten out of the hobby (not acquiring anymore, but still holding on to my collection), so I didn't notice it for months afterward. I had some of my boxes labeled, and they took three of the most valuable. The least of those had X-men Giant Size 1, then X-men 94 through 200 (plus Hulk 180-182 and a few other first appearances). All probably 9.0 or better. The other two boxes were most of my Golden Age I acquired when I fell in love with GA books back in the '80s. Hurts to even think of them. I still have my old comics inventory list, but I can hardly stand to look at it. Highlights: Batman 18 through 43. Multiple Captain America, All-Select, Marvel Mystery, All-Star, All-Select and many EC titles.

The 9.8 Gods no longer smile on me:










First time using cgc. No Newton rings, but for being pressed, the 9.4 seems to have bends that I think would’ve been corrected by a press. But what do I know?

Collector GanaSoth private msg quote post Address this user
@Themaxx35 I agree with what you said about the 9.4 being that if it was "actually" pressed, then those bends would have been less noticeable.

They ran out of scratch paper that week.
