I think there is another thread out there with the same or a similar theme, but it's a very interesting topic, so another one seems fine by me.

(Although it should be "fewer than 10 copies" -- a pet peeve of mine! :))

A lot of Baker St John romance books fall into this category.  Here's one that has only one copy on the census (we were discussing these recently in the Baker thread):

Fewer!!

my guess is the majority of centaurs are 10 or less, so just head over to my centaur a day thread (shameless plug) to see them, rather than cross posting and filling up duplicate space

I'm finding it a little funny that this thread is based on the assumption that if a book doesn't have a lot of copies on the Census it is "rare," yet most of the books posted on the thread are raw.

All of mine will be raw. I had to pick a cut off number, and browsing the CGC census was what gave me the idea. It is funny, but we all know there's more books in the wild than are reflected in the census.

Love all those Weird Comics! Fascinated at how few there are.

Thanks! I'm a big fan of the title, and spent 8 years collecting the run. Here's a link to a thread I made featuring the books:

To sfcityduck's point, there are certainly far more raw copies than slabbed ones. But man, not an easy collect by any means. The mid-to-late issues are particularly tough.

I agree with what you are writing here, but the thread isn't about "rare" comics.  Some might be, but maybe the intent here is to call-out collectors to submit their books in order to help populate the census and create a better/more accurate report?

Not my intent. I just wanted to pose the question, see other posters' books, and discuss them. While we don't know how many copies of a book exist if ten (or fewer) are listed in the census, if there are fifty (or whatever number) listed we know for sure there's at least that many.
