I Wanna get Married!

This might prove to be a useful but I think it'd be nice to marry coverless books/centerfolds with either cover only or comics missing a centerfold (or more). Post the list of books where you have just the cover or need inner wraps. I think posting coverless copies might get overwhelming though I'm sure folks would love to see lists of high dollar coverless issues out there.

 

I'd be curious to hear how folks view value for something like this. Lets say a person owns a VG cover (sans staple rip) and another person has a pretty nice complete coverless. Market price for a Good is $1000 and putting them together probably warrants a Good. Pretend its an All American 61 (Solomon Grundy) for a visual.

 

There'd be two tough aspects, the first in finding the male and female parts to marry and the second is valuing the two of them. What % would the VG cover be compared to the coverless copy as described above? I'd guess 2/3 to 1/3 cover over coverless. I'd also guess that independently they'd sell for similar amounts at lower dollar value but at higher dollar the cover would garner more and more %. I'm thinking Detective 35 front cover on Heritage as a case in point - though I think it was bought by mistake or some such.

 

I'd guess $100 complete comics and up make it worth the search but you really never know. Early 50s coverless Supermans and Batmans only go for $20 or so and adding a cover really only makes it a $50 book, but why not.

 

BTW here's website that is trying/tried to do the same thing but doesn't get a lot of traffic it appears.

BTW I have an Archie #1 cover only where I'd love to get a hold of a coverless copy. Too bad Metropolis wants over $2000 for their POS #1 but then again the cover I have is only slightly better.

Interesting thread.

 

I need the CF for Captain Marvel Adventures 10 & 30, Blue Beetle 8, Spirit 18, Blackhawk 20, Superman 5, and Superman 43. I need cover and outer fold for Superman 2, cover for Superman 5, and cover plus outer folds for Superman 9, cover for Superman 17

 

Who can hook me up?

 

Crappy-but-complete copies also considered on the Superman books

Great thread idea!

 

I know I have:

Cap 7 missing centerfold

Cap 5 missing some internal wraps and a bad-amateur-resto cover. (wraps salvaged for a different copy of the book that had a better cover)

 

And a bunch more. I'll try to post them when I get home. :)

I could use a cover for Superman 8, Hangman 8, Terrytoons 1 and Sure Fire 3a. Centerfolds are

needed for Hangman 5, Action 40, Jackpot 9 and Blackhood 9. I have covers for

Pep 33 and Marvel Mystery 36. I am also looking for the cover and first wrap of

Detective 39. Send me a note if you have anything. I have two boxes of coverless

comics and half of them are golden age.

I am also looking for any of the following covers or incomplete issues: USA Comics 2, Captain America Comics 71, Detective Comics 15, 18, 21, 22.

Thank you to Welborn for coming up with a coverless Batman 9.

 

Here's a consolidated list of full covers only. Again, I haven't listed the coverless as I imagine it'd really be tougher to find a cover to a coverless than vice versa. These are also issue that may only need a centerfold where a coverless would be useful.

 

Looks like catrick 339 either has a cover for Superman 5 or a coverless Superman 5 not sure what he has but a coverless superman 5 would be needed here twice over.
