I think because CGC didn't have slabs for them till now. Next they need to do is Treasury Size and all will be right in the world
----------

slabbed magazines are of an unmanageable size. i have no problem with regular size magazines as they fit just fine in a magazine size box, which most comic shops tend to carry because many GA books and some SA doesn't fit in a regular box anyway. i prefer magazine boxes.

Here's my #1, which is one of the first books I had slabbed. I purchased it as a VG/F on eBay for a song. Shows how much that site has regressed. These days, many sellers would call it NM.

I almost forgot my favorite of the bunch. The pics aren't great, but this one looks much better in hand and I think the grade is kinda tight. \(shrug\)

You should send them to CGC to be re-slabbed and you might get a upgrade in the grade because I think all of your books are nice.

Fantastic copy! I am sure you could get much more than a song for that now. Probably a whole iPod's worth of songs...

Okay, so let me get the ball rolling on some of my favorite foreign Mad issues. These are from my collection. First, here are some foreign #1 copies:



Starting from the upper left and going clockwise, that's the Great Britain #1, the Netherlands #1, the Turkey #1, and the Argentina #1.

(Just got the French #1 on eBay, and it's supposedly in the mail from Europe. Can't wait to get it!)

Here are two of my favorite foreign issues in a sequence together. The one on the left is German issue #83. The one on the right is Argentina #1. (This cover concept was based on a Mad article that showed the aftermath of various Mad covers -- I can't remember which issue this was, but it fascinated me when I was a kid, and I longed to enter an alternative reality where such issues existed. Little did I know, they did in fact exist with foreign issues.)

Here's one of my all-time favorite foreign issues. The cover art is absolutely disgusting and disturbing, and that's why I love it. This is Swedish Mad issue #44.
