Re: 29 years of collecting Valiant...

The 29th year of Valiant brought us a legit Hollywood movie of a Valiant character. That has to count for something even if a pandemic blew the wind out of it's sails.

Re: X-O Manowar #1/2 Gold - CGC census jump 8/18/2020

Sure but they all have condition issues! Well maybe not 39 of them but the rest! This book is printed on terrible paper, wavy, easily torn at the spine. I am shocked we got to 39. Given there was uncirculated stock, it should be many hundreds. If it was untouched stock then pressing could do wonder...

Re: 2020 CGC Registry Awards

The point value for variants is also wacky. VEI variants are no different in value than regular issues. I always thought it was that the creation of new sets with moderns that every book got the base 24 pts and just stayed at 24 pts indefinitely until a request was submitted to change the score. I ...

Re: Lobo's CGC submission thread

After a very lengthy pause in submissions, I decided to rush out 25 moderns along with some emergency reslabbing books at the beginning of June. Managed to get some Valiants in this bunch and all were "natural" 9.8s that didn't need the pressing treatment. It's been awhile since I had all 25 books c...

Re: Case of 100 Deathmate books on eBay

10 cases! Shipping is $76 for me, which is nutso! I know a guy with a case of 500 X-O 0s or something along those lines. He bought them new and it's still sealed. He just can't bring himself to sell them at a reasonable price. Yeah but what is a reasonable price to you? Less than 50 cents a copy? H...

Re: Was everyone sleeping on this?

9.8 slabs may be the default for modern slab collecting but I'm surprised people would turn up their noses at a 9.6 of a book that is next to impossible to find raw never mind in grade. Check the census, there is only one 9.8 and 4 9.6s out of 14 books graded. Holding out for a 9.8 may be forever an...

That is fascinating. What does yours look like condition-wise? The edges of mine are immaculate, but there is one small bend on the back of the spine that isn’t visible on the front. Mine is pretty sharp. The chromium cover very slight curls up at the corners when lying flat but no other 'defects' ...

Saw that too. Does something look off with this Plat to you? I have a CGC 8.5, and have seen others, but the distortion in the logo doesn't seem to be consistent with the others. Kind of curious (and suspect) as to why it hasn't been graded. I think this book is legit. I have a raw copy that looks ...
