BECKETT is hiring Graders.

What are "DIGITAL COLLECTIBLES" and how are they graded?

Marty - these are the things I called NFTs in one of the email Newsletters. You can't really grade them. It's basically another one of these crypto things where a digital record on the Internet says you are the owner of an image. It was a trendy craze awhile back but has cooled off a lot. Have a great holiday Marty!

Truly appreciated viewer site over at CBCS FORUM where members are selecting their favorite
comics from my PARK AVENUE COLLECTION site. Will be interesting to see what books are
selected. I am really honored to have this kind of interest in my collection from such an elite
and informed group of collectors.

In the My Comic Shop auction which ended yesterday...

MARVEL FAMILY #1 CGC graded 5.5 sold for $10,600
CGC graded 1.5 sold for $ 2,650


I guess my CGC graded copy at 3.0 might bring a good return.

DC's STAR SPANGLED WAR STORIES begins with #131 thru #133 and begins again with #3...
making it really #4 in the series...I wonder why?
My copy of STAR SPANGLED WARS STORIES is a #3 also a remainder copy.

Coverless are no longer books to be ignored Marty! Many collectors are now happy with any copy, and will take a coverless. Same with remaindered copies. On the Star Spangled War, the usual scenario here is a title starts to flounder and slip in sales (here Star Spangled Comics), so they would try switching the content and tweaking the title just a bit. If it looked promising, they would restart the numbering. They probably just made a mistake on this one and should have started at #4.

Tommy I have a few remainder issues that appear to be collectible like...

MYSTERY IN SPACE #1
DANGER TRAIL #1
HAUNT OF FEAR #16
TALES FROM THE CRYPT #20

...except for the missing top third of the cover they are in great shape.
When I was buying these books for 5 cents the only thing I was looking for was the story inside.
