It appears that a STUNTMAN #3 has been obtained by MILE HIGH COMICS.

I think I have the Oldest Original Owner Collection
of Golden Age Comics on the Boards.

I know that a seller can ask whatever he wants to and it's up to the buyer
to be willing to pay it but...COMIC CONNECT has a copy of MARVEL FAMILY #1
cgc graded 5.0 for the Buy Now price of $49,999.00.

Not only does my copy of SENSATION #68 feature the first appearance of the
Original Golden Age HUNTRESS but might contain the first image of the
BLACK CANARY in a promotional page for FLASH COMICS #86. Both books
were August 1947 issues with on sale dates of June 1947.

Hard to believe but it;s been 80 years since I bought my first comic book off a
newsstand...ALL WINNERS #4 graded at a 3.0 by CGC and it still looks great.

How time does fly!

Costing more and taking longer to get a GA book graded...grading + image + postage
both ways to CGC is over $125.00 per book with standard grading time of 28 days.
Getting just a little too much for me.

Two very underrated comics: HEADLINE COMICS #16 Origin and first appearance of
ATOMIC MAN...might be the first ATOMIC SUPERHERO.

HEADLINE COMICS #17 First ATOMIC MAN cover.

Going through my box of remainder comics from the early 50's I can see
even in their condition they have grown in value. Ones like TALES FROM
THE CRYPT #20, MYSTERY IN SPACE #1, DANGER TRAIL #1 and CAPTAIN
SCIENCE #4. All of the EC's also seem to be of interest to collectors even
with a third of the cover missing.

Speaking of Remaindered Comics, there is an interesting thread on the CGC
Golden Age Chat Board about "THE THRIFTY GROCER COLLECTION", a large
group of Remaindered and Coverless Comics.

Anyone notice any activity with MARVEL FAMILY #1 with the opening of the ADAM movie?

Reviewing the current results of the latest ComicConnect auction it appears to me
that there were a lot of books that sold at a lower price like TOMB OF DRACULA #1
CBCS 5.5 for $210.00. Haven't had the time to go through all the auction prices
but they do look like some real bargains.

Went to the Saratoga Comic Con on Sunday and was very surprised by the total lack
of Golden Age Comics. One dealer I spoke to had a ZAGO #1 graded at 8.0 by CGC
selling for $475.00. He said he wasn't sure how to price it as he was having a hard
time selling it...no interest for it. He wasn't sure about any of his prices, seemed
like the only interest at least at this show was in low priced current, modern titles.

It will be interesting to see what amount is bid for the ALL WINNERS #4 CGC Graded 3.5
in HERITAGE'S current weekly auction. My copy is CGC graded at 3.0 (0199552001).
This was the very first comic book I ever bought, back in 1942 off a newsstand in
Philadelphia.
