  1. As always, I appreciate all the "experts" chiming in -- I knew there were some of you out there who knew the book. Based on what I've heard so far, I'm happy with the purchase -- definitely much better price than pre-slab $$ Harley seemed to be asking. I'm sure he didn't want the same thing to happen to him again.-- anyway, I think he was fair knowing what he knew and me not knowing. Still don't understand the 1.8 "brittleness" from CGC - both Primetime and myself certainly can't see why PQ is such an issue here. But like Gator said, it IS unrestored at the least. Thanks again, Happy Fish P.S. PT -- do I have your Action #13 by chance? -- I know Harley had a poor copy that he sold to a neighbor @ the Spring Toronto show, whom I bought it from subsequently (which, BTW, was also too "brittle" to restore according to Matt @ Classics Inc.)
  2. Gator, you know I'm saving up for it!!!!!!!! I'll check with you first , though, so I don't get scammed -- you are the MAN! FISH
  3. Finally, as promised months ago, my run to #10 (minus #1 of course). Enjoy all! Fishbone
  4. My latest Timely pick-up from Toronto FanFest..............enjoy a great cover!! Fishbone
  5. Here's my latest pickup - from Toronto FanFest from Harley............any of you experts seen this particular one before. If so , do share anything you know of it's history....... Fishbone
  6. Yeah, I know.........searched and searched and finally couldn't wait, so I grabbed a "slightly" restored from Metro (posted not too long ago on this thread). Although a beauty, and expensive enough, would love to score an unrestored.......and you found it on an e-bay store no less........F'n congratulations, Man!!!!!! Fish
  7. Forget about having the wife or girlfriend there when you buy your ASM#1 --- how about completing the whole ASM run totally behind the wife's back...............................................yeah, think about it......... FISH (sneaky, very sneaky)
  8. I have a question for anyone willing to make an educated guess re: Detective Comics #29 (especially since I have one now). I'm wondering, with all your collective experience, how many unrestored Tec #29's would you guess are still in the world as we know it ? ...and what logic do GA comic experts like yourselves use to come up with such an answer ?? Fishbone the Curious
  9. I'm done!!.............didn't even need the scan............
  10. ...........My lord!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!What a SICK book!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I've been avoiding so much porn over the last week because of you guys....Thank you all !!! Did I see an actual Action#1 while looking back pages and pages the other night , or was I dreaming ?? Was it also owned by you BangZoom ?? Could you do the new guy a favour and post it again?? Does anyone else own a copy of any condition of #1 and could you post it for me ?? (Rick - do you still have it ??) FISH (ready to explode)
  11. Sorry -- no 8 or 9 ---- 7 , 10 , 15 , 17, 19, 20 ..... who can guess the collecting pattern and what is STILL missing !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  12. some more before I hit the sack.............................
  13. e-mail on it's way to Matt -- you guys are way too smart for me!!!!
  14. Sorry, rick -- I must have been reading your comment at 2 in the AM and half-asleep!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yes, it seems it is THAT E-bay to Metro book. And seven bills sealed it. How the heck does a guy pay 8 on E-bay and 2 weeks later sells and gets 7 less Metro's cut ?? Anyway, thanks for your expert opinions -- makes me feel like I did alright........... FISH
  15. I know one thing -- it would cetainly strain the relationship with one wife of mine if I even thought of keeping a coolection that big in her house....... PWed
  16. I'm up to about 1500 in just under 2 years, with just over 500 (obviously) being the complete ASM run and about 50 being 1938 to 1940 GA Supes/Batman/Timely's -- now if only my bank account could increase a bit more..........
  17. Damn!!!!!!! Just heard back from Matt Nelson -- my Action #10 's interior is deemed too brittle to restore ---- although cover is apparently very restorable. Anyone own a coverless #10 they don't need anymore ???? FISH
  18. re: Tec 29 from Fishbone: Well, you're sort of correct----------it was from Metro but it wasn't listed only 2 or so weeks ago -- more like 3+ months ago, so I'm not sure about the timing you have-- did another TEC 29 possibly come and go at Metro that I'm not aware of ?? Also, I haven't been on e-Bay for awhile so I'm not sure about that part either....................but I did jump on it pretty quickly (it was only about one or two days at the most listed)...it was described by Stephen as "VG cover but overall GD due to "some" brittleness of interior pages".....it actually looks a lot better than his description over the phone to me , which I was really happy about..I'd be curious if anyone could hazard a guess as to what I paid for it, or even what they would have OFFERED Stephen based on that description and based on my scan (just for fun....I really wanted it, so I paid what I paid, but I guess I need some affirmation.......) Fish PS Oh yeah-----it actually is unrestored as well..........
  19. and one more before I call it a night..............
  20. For those of you who can't get enough of the Holy Grail of the SA............. my 2.5 and my 4.5..................... Fishbone
  21. ...........love this one too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  22. I'm new to this thread and this book is new to my GA collection.......could look at this book over and over and never stop loving it !!! Fishbone
  23. You're right - I don't think I'll ever outpost you Detective27kid, but as a newcomer I thought I'd share a few of my Timely's as my first post on this thread.............................and what was up with early Timely's and all that bondage (though I LOVE those bondage covers for sure!)
  24. Thanks......I thought I'd need to show some credibility to join this elite group!! The #10 is banged up , but I'm sure you and every other serious collector knows how freakin' hard it is to find a half-decent sub-#20 Action that won't set you back a few mortgage payments !!!!! Still searching for a #13 (like everyone else here I guess) - my "dream" is to have every Superman-cover Action from 1938 thru 1940 (minus #1 of course ---- well, it is a dream isn't it??). I just need #23 , #29 , and of course #13. Any sellers ?? Also, would love to own Superman numbers 1 thru 10 -- just need #1 to complete -------- easy, right ?? Fishbone PS I'm considering restoring my #10 -- any opinions/comments/concerns from anyone???
  25. OK -- I will try this..............Here are some of my Superman "treasures":
