Beauties, all around! Just an FYI, you will want to censor the non-CGC labels, or else the post will probably get yanked. Still, great books!

Good call, never even thought about that! I'll just delete and start over.

This is too beautiful not to share. 

Fairly scarce book. Only a handful on the census. I used to own an undercopy. I tracked it back down, but the new owner didn't want to part with it. 

Two days later, I found this and tripped over my own feet to get to my wallet. Had it re-slabbed. The new pedigree label looks way better in person than I thought. 

This one is going to stay locked up for a LONG time. I just love that old school crazy fun cover. 

Hard to believe this is an 80 year old book. This Rockford copy is second highest graded of 5 universal copies. The top copy is a 9.6. I'm going to go ahead and assume that was a Mile High copy? Does anyone know?

I have always loved this cover. 

The early issues of this run are pretty hit and miss. Some are a bit cheesy, but this one always stood out. I passed on an opportunity to own one a few years ago and I've been kicking myself since. 

Of course, the later issues change to arguably LB Cole's best work.
