I have quite a few raw and slabbed duplicates. Would anyone be interested in trading/filling the gaps in our collections?

Newb here and late to the party but if this is not a stale inquiry I would be :)

Bumping @Ron C.'s terrific thread as it is germane to the L&R discussion in the Black CAT thread, and also because it's full of gorgeous books.

Ron, do please drop a message when you end up doing your sale, if I haven't already missed it!

It's going to take some time to put things together and work is pretty busy right now. I am shooting for sometime in May.

May would be great, as I'm sure I'd pick up a few things, but I just bought a collection and also had to pay the taxman, so funds are tight! Looking forward to it, whenever it happens!

I would have done a sales thread sooner, but these books are hard to put a value on. Many (actually quite a few) of these 1st printings, I have the only two on the CGC census. I don't know why Fantagraphics used this type of staple, but it is hard to find these books without rust on them. I preserve what I have with desiccant gel packets, but after 35-40 years, much of the damage has been done.

A few more... some I will bring to Motor City for signatures. The first two rows are all first printings... a few from 14-20 with rusty staples. Next 2 rows are V.2.

Are rusty staples also commonplace  in the first 1-13?
