These were the four golden age books I found in my dad's collection. Three Timely comics ain't bad. Don't mind the EC in the top right corner, this is the only pic on my phone of em!!

That is outstanding!!!! Wow, a Human Torch #13 and a Marvel Mystery #48 as highlights of the stack (for ME anyway!)!!! Congratulations!!!  :applause:

Did the grades and PQ hold? One of the reasons I'm hesitant to reholder

They look great Ricky!!! The new holder looks SO much better than the older ones!!! Plus, the pedigree label looks oh so sweet!!!  :banana:

I've been holding back for a while sending some books in for reholdering – I wasn't sure if they would come out ok, but this post has emboldened me.

And totally agree - the current slabs are WAAAAAY better than the older ones. I love the little lip they have on the back for carrying them, and they don't have that stupid strip of paper glued to the top.

The clarity of the newest gen is SO much better than anything I'd even thought possible, due to the layers of material between you and the book! Superior indeed!

The only draw back are those darn newton rings . Sometimes they are there and just ruin the visual appeal other they are not .
