Thanks,

I've been lurking for a long time, but for a thread like this, I just had to
chip in. Been a long-time Dr. Strange fan, especially the 126-127 pair.

Ros,

The 103 I got from a private collector in a big trade back in early 2004 (he actually got my 9.6 White Mountain copy and i'm still kicking myself for letting that go). I did get a book I had wanted in that trade but giving up a 9.6 ST #103 hurts (in any language, etc.). One of the "ones that got away" but I have a nice 9.4 and I'm not going to lose any more sleep over it (didn't get much for that calendar year!!).

The #108 I got from a dealer a bunch of years ago, probably in 2003. Definitely the nicest copy I have ever seen. I've always loved that cover too. If my memory serves me correctly (it usually does), I got it as part of a larger deal and it was "only" a 9.4 but I could not believe how perfect it looked and I immediately resubmitted it. Sure enough, it came back a 9.6, off-white/white pages!! I had a killer PC copy that was undergraded (shown in this thread) It received a 9.2 but it's a 9.4 in my mind. That book is gorgeous!!

Thanks, Ros. I have to admit that reminiscing about this stuff is as much a part of collecting for me as having the books themselves.

Doug

Great books! Strange Tales is such a quality title. Here is my #101, from the Golden State collection.



Wow, that's a beauty! I had not realized that the GS collection ran that far back.

Ros,

That Winnipeg 104 is nicer than a 9.2. CGC deducts about a quarter grade or so for the original owner (Dennis Kjolso) penning his name in ink at the top of the cover. That's a 9.4 (at leat). I bought the early SA Winnipegs and they were severely undergraded by the CGC. I remember that 104 and its killer!

Doug, have you found it to be worthwhile to send many books in for re-grading after careful examination.??
