Re: First Valiant Comic Sells for $2,300

I get your point that it has nothing to do the Valiant Universe that we all know and love. However I think the Nintendo /WWF books are great too. They are at the start of Valiant and helped get the company off the ground. They had the same creators working on them and the same Valiant coloring proc...

Ask Dino to get the story from SPYMASTER Fred Pierce on the Midwest counterfeit Pre-Unity comics caper. And have one of them post it here!

Re: The Drop: Midnight, On Earth Podcast ft. Jim Shooter..4 hrs!

There's nothing really shocking here....except for the length. OMG! The "PHH" phone company promo seemed new. I may have an inkling of a lost promo but never anything that concrete. Also, I think we always knew Shooter wrote pretty much everything, but I am not sure I had ever heard that every writ...

Re: The Drop: Midnight, On Earth Podcast ft. Jim Shooter..4 hrs!

What is the approximate time stamp for the pre-unity counterfeit discussion? About 2:35. There really isn't a discussion, it is a colorful anecdote about Fred Pierce. There are no details there to actually go on, and the interviewer never got back to it. The good part is that Fred will probably fil...

Re: Some wild valiant related stuff is coming Mar 4th!

So few Valiant's are worth "counterfeiting" in the "thousands" range... Counterfeiting is not new. The best modern example is Cerebus, and the reason that was counterfeited is because it was so easy. Since it was created with small scale B&W technology it could be reproduced with the same. 1990's Va...

Re: 90’s Comics and page ‘yellowing’?

If the CGC data API records and gives access to page quality we could ask Greg to run the numbers on this. Books from 1991-1993 with page quality not WHITE and grade >= 9.8.

Re: 90’s Comics and page ‘yellowing’?

While CGC has a separate designations for page quality and grade, I believe there is a point at which the page quality is a factor in the grade. The Overstreet grading guide lays out guidelines for this, and CGC appears to have taken their model from Overstreet. So I don't think there can exist a 9....

Re: KT making her 1st cover appearance on BS #10 exclusive

So this is probably a naive question but why would Marvel ever bother to do such small runs of later printings? If Marvel needs 1000 copies of a book for reorders I would think that falls under the "sorry, deal with it Mr. Retailer" threshold.

Re: Some disappointing CGC results for someone...

My real issue with CGC is that the 9.8 is the appealing sort of market commanding grade. But the crapshoot between a 9.8 and a 9.6 is ridiculous at times - in many ways as it should be given the small difference on the scale. But I think everyone here knows that you could resubmit your 9.6 and prov...

Re: Some disappointing CGC results for someone...

It was me!!!

OK, it wasn't me.

The other option is the package/books were damaged in transit and CGC did not realize it.

Re: RE: Selling the rarest CGC 9.8 Old Valiant released book on eBay!

My best recollection is that it was in a group of other books and was not anything specific I purchased. Now I did buy stuff from people who were very close to valiant and the valiant publishing process. So you never know.

Re: RE: Selling the rarest CGC 9.8 Old Valiant released book on eBay!

For someone who was supposed to know everything about this stuff it was really just ignorance. I assumed it was equivalent to the other variants and when I saw there were no 9.8s in the census I used the other variants to decide whether or not to slab it. Given the existence of 9.9's for some of the...
