1965 was a great year!

I guess ASM 28 won't be rare in high grade anymore.

Kudos to greggy for pointing this out first.

Heres the quick background. I recently bought five "original" 48 pack boxes of comics from a beer distributor in Central Utah. The comics were meant for distribution into local gas stations and such in 1965 but somehow never made it out. So the boxes sat in the warehouse for a few years until the owners son saw them, thought they might be valuable and locked them up in the safe, there they sat for another 30 years or so, until the son (now the owner) came across the books again. He put a notice out of Old Comics for sale. I answered the ad and the contents of those boxes is what you see now.

Each box contained the exact same books, all the boxes were sealed and the books have never seen sunlight with the exception of the pics I just took of them.
The result is some of the most pristine books you will ever find. They are all 1965 books from varied months. And all the gems are up for auction. Want more, please see my other auctions.
The condition is near mint if not mint. The corners are sharp, the pages are white with vibrant colors, the covers are magnificent with no fading, marks or blemishes. Please look closely at the pics and you will see what Im talking about. Want bigger pics, please email me for high res images. I WILL NOT end these auctions early for any reason.
Books guaranteed to be exactly as represented and shown or full refund will be issued upon return of the item.

You can bet a couple HG ASM #28 owners are beating their heads against the wall about now...

Another find with some nice FF 48s...
That must be the most common major key of the Silver Age now by far!
If prices stay surpressed I'll take a shot at one of them.

What a dummy for telling everybody he's got 48 boxes filled with the same comics.
48 high grade FF 48s...

He sould have put them up a few at a time and kept his mouth shut.
And CGCed the sharp ones too...

What a great find!

A couple of keys and one of the most notoriously difficult books in high grade with ASM 28.

Thing is the scan isn't "NM to M" and you can see his finger print marks on the book when he went to scan it

Yeah, most are probably VFish to 9.0 with a few 9.4+ gems.

But I'll take a white paged 8.5 FF 48 please!

Not the greatest marketing ploy I've ever seen. I guess it all depends how quickly he releases the contents of all 48 boxes. If indeed this particular guy even bought them all.

The way I'm reading it, he has 5 boxes with 48 comics each in them.

Still, what a lucky find!

You are correct! I just re-read the auction description after skimming it the first time. Only five copies of each comic likely, so I don't see the high grade market crashing just yet.

And if you look at the pics it's the same pic for each comic.
Not the pic of the comic you'll get.
