yep, that's purty!

What did Bob have it graded at?  Spot-on, or did you get a deal?

I have had 3 too, keeping my latest

yeah, I hated to give up my first copy, which I bought when I worked at a comic shop 20+ years ago, and was my prized possession. Graded at a 7.5, but sold it during a stretch where I didn't have much choice. Bought a beater copy later, but sold it as it wasn't as pretty as I liked. Got a pretty good deal on this one a couple of years ago, just got around to slabbing it this summer. I think it's my keeper unless I find a nicer one at a bargain, or I decide there's something else I want more (which is always a possibility with me. I have wandering eyes from time to time.)

 I paid $175 for my first one, which was a lot at the time, I was 19 or 20 and working at a comic shop, so I didn't have a lot of cash. Had to put it on layaway. Loved that book. Got it slabbed a few years later and sold it. A few years ago I bought a beater for around $150, but was never happy with it. I also paid up for this copy, but luckily got it before the run up in price of the last year or so.

Thanks! This one came back an 8.5 with OW/W pages. There is a VERY slight DS on B/c. I think I still have my 9.2 White I bought from Roy about 7 or 8 years ago and I have a 9.0 white pager lying around somewhere. Can't find them in the stack o' comics. This book was always my grail and I can't seem to pass it up when I get a good deal. I am waiting for the book to uptick to sell a copy or two.
