THIS BOOK IS FROM THE HOLLYWOOD HILLS COLLECTION.
Forty years ago, from late 1965 to early 1968, a young collector would purchase
multiple copies of each issue of such titles as Amazing Spider-Man,
Daredevil, Fantastic Four, Tales of Suspense and
X-Men. One copy would be read, and the others would be meticulously
placed away for safe-keeping. Ultimately approximately 1,000 books were amassed,
of which nearly 400 have been acquired by EsquireComics.com and Southern California Comics (about half of
those have been CGC certified and the remaining books were retained by the
owner's son for sale on eBay). The majority of the books fall within the 9.2 - 9.6 range, and often have pure white pages.
this collection is designated a "pedigree" on my site, it is just a
"collection". In order to key the collection my website only recognizes
"pedigree" designations. None of the books are marked or come with a
certificate of authenticity, nor has the history of the collection
impacted the prices.
The sale of these books is being handled
by Southern California Comics which mantains physical possession of the
Colllection. If you are interested in purchasing this book or have a
