I know this is an old tread. It came up on a Google search while trying to track down some high grade issues I'm missing.

 

I've been collecting this series for a while now (2 years or so) and have to say...the latter issues are so hard to find in a high grade.

 

I've been picking up raw copies when I can find them with Jungle Action 19 being the hardest to find on a consistent basis.

 

Has there been any new news on #19? Any 9.8's yet? And lastly...does anybody have or know where I can buy a copy "raw" high grade?

 

Thanks

There hasn't been any #19 that is a 9.8, I've looked for awhile for raw copies and have not came across any that would even get that grade. Which books have you acquired so far (graded)?

Thank you.

 

I have a few I purchased on-line that were advertised as NM (none of them actually are)...one of them has black ink color touch on the cover.

 

I recently picked up a raw 8.5 from Metropolis Collectibles and was able to pick it up in person. Very nice copy with little to no color breaks. Maybe a 9.0 with professional press.

 

I missed the boat on a 9.0 cgc auction 3 months back but no big loss...it was a miswrap with tons of white on left margin.

 

Never seen one in a LCS back issue bin or wall. Lots of lower grade copies on various sites. 6.5's or lower.

 

I suspect more will come into the market one people catch on but not for the price I'm looking for.

And as far as the series? I have every issue starting with #5. Waiting to submit entire run for grading one I find or press a few I already have.

 

Think the best I'll do is 9.0 or so on the run.

 

Purchased my #5 and #6 before the movie spec. ..luckily.

That's good to hear. I purchased mine also before any movie spec, around 4-5 years ago. My goal was to complete the 5-24 in 9.8 White Pages.

 

I purchased many off of www.metropoliscomics.com and/or www.comicconnect.com when suscha news was just being released and no one was looking at collecting the JA series. Others were on www.wwcomics.com, and the only one I received from a private seller was JA #5, think it was on EBay.

 

1) Jungle Action #11, got outbid on comicconnect (now looking back at it, would of just bet $10 more. lol). There are three 9.8's on census

 

2) Jungle Action #19 - Like you've found out, haven't seen any high grade

 

3) Jungle Action #21 - One board member has it, reached out, but haven't heard from or even seen the member on the boards in awhile, his copy contains white pages (Only 2 on the census)

 

4) Jungle Action #23 - Batman_fan has this one, I actually know where it was purchased from , www.wwcomics.com I acquired a number of my graded ones from that site as I said before, just caught wind of this issue late. :( (Only 2 on the census, his copy contains white pages, and the other was purchased off of Heritage (off-white-white)

 

The closest I've come to acquiring a JA #23 was this piece, painted on a canvas material. A co-worker knew I liked the Black Panther and asked his daughter to do something for me. Surprisingly it was an issue I'm looking for, even though he didn't know about it. :banana:

5) Jungle Action #24 - Haven't seen anyone with this out there available, though there are 7 total on the census at 9.8

 

The most recent one I bought is the JA #22 CGC 9.8, this was difficult because of the common mis-wrap of the cover, but someone finally had one available. There are 9 on the census, and I've seen a couple that had mis-wrap covers (if that's important to you).

There’s a Boardee who hoards JA 23. Can’t remember his name, but he has posted group shots before. Has a gajillion copies of it. Maybe someone can chime in as to who it is...
