Really quick turnaround from CGC on some books I sent in. I sent the books in on 10/9. It was verified on 10/12. Scheduled for grading on 10/17. Graded on 10/22. Graded/QC on 10/31. Shipped on 11/2 and received on 11/8. I'm very pleased with how fast I got these books back.
I honestly thought the 9.8 had a shot at 9.9 or even a 10.0, but I'm happy with how the books graded.
Really nice Fiddy!! That 10.0 should fetch top dollar (if you are selling)! There is a 10.0 on eBay right now with highest bid at $284 and still 6 days left to go on the auction.
Thanks Bryan. I don't plan on selling the 9.9 or 10.0, but if the price keeps going up on these then I may change my mind. I've already sold the 9.8's so those are my two remaining copies.
Adding a few new purchases. I am thinking about starting a run of Jonah Hex books since some of the covers are pretty cool. I like the cheesecake artwork on #87, so I try to pick up any copies I can find that are cheap.
A couple other books I pick up whenever I can find them cheap. That Archie is getting harder to find cheap but they're still out there. I've been picking up copies of Brightest Day #5 whenever I find them. It's the first appearance of Siren, Merra's sister. She appeared in Aquaman #22 but this is the first time she is called Siren...I think.
I purchased these back in November before they started their recent climb up in price. They were advertised as VF, but I think they're in much better shape than that. I considered just flipping them, but I may hold off on that for a bit.
I was a huge Turok fan back in the 90s, around the time Valiant released their version of the character. I started to acquire books whenever I could and since it was a short run I decided to collect the series. I thought I had all of the books, but I'm missing one regular issue (#126), one of the SF price variants, and a few of the Whitman reprints.
Here is my Turok collection starting with #1 graded and raw copy.
Ditch Fahrenheit: Just clippers. First time in the pandemic my hair was long, so I just shaved my head. The next time I did a buzz cut with a fade on the sides using different spacers. Did the same thing again this time. It's almost 3/4" long on top...

Ditch Fahrenheit: ...and about half that on the sides. I might keep this up. It's kinda cool not to have to rely on a barber or stylist.

StuDaBaker: Johanna refuses to cut my hair. My hair is currently the longest it's been in 20 years.
