Show Your 3 Ring Binder Hole Punched Comics

Going through a box and found these books that were hole punched to clip
into a 3 ring binder! I didn't do this. Knew I had them, but haven't seen them
in awhile.  Some kid back in the day probably thought that it was a cool way
to carry their comics. Maybe stealth read them in class with the teacher
thinking that they were reading the assignment!?

Cool books otherwise and great readers. I know I have a few more
somewhere. I remember a BA Joker 1. Will have to look for that.

I know this really isn't that uncommon, so show them if you got them...

I dunno what the plan was with this one, only one punch hole and just through the cover not the pages :(

I sent it in for grading a few years ago, it came back a 4.0 I think

I had the same reaction as Bob/RobotMan when I ran across these back in 1976.  Several hundred sweet Atlas at $1 each.  :whatthe:  Needless to say, I bought the dealer out.  :devil:  Here's just a small sample of what I added to my permanent collection that day:

This is what's referred to as a cut-out.  In the old days, unsold books and record albums that had been returned to the manufacturer or distributor were marked with either a punched hole or a clipped corner.  These returns were then sold at a steep discount.  The punched hole or clipped corner allowed retailers to immediately recognize the book/record as a discounted return copy, should anyone present it requesting a refund of the original/undiscounted sale price.

The punched hole in this example is at the bottom-left corner:
