FACT if I stop posting, trillions and trillions of transistors would be out of work.
I know the Oakland Collection doesnít always get a lot of respect because it only goes back to the mid 60s. And nobody would ever claim that itís the same league as the Curators, WMs, or PCs. That said, I think itís a pretty great collection. Theyíre structurally beautiful and also have good gloss and colors.
Looking back, I think that Vincent Z., Mike C., and Bob S. did a great job on grading the collection. Almost every Oakland book Iíve submitted to CGC came back with the same grade (or better) as listed on the original labels.
To buy the books when Vincent first got the collection, I played hooky from work and took the longest subway ride ever to his parentís place in Far Rockaway. I still think it was worth every second on the A train.
