Family Heirloom

Filed under: Uncategorized — lbej @ 10:05

I was on the lookout for a Thor #126 (who’s not, right?) and not having much luck.  It’s not a tough book to find, but a copy meeting my requirements (presentable cover, max grade g/vg, 1/2 OS or less) has proven elusive.  When I found this, I was compelled to relax my requirements.

This copy grades out at Good (2.o) and could price a little higher or lower depending on how you feel about writing on the cover.  I happen to love writing on the cover, especially if a kid back in the 50s or 60s decided to help the artist out by adding dialogue or facial hair where it was obviously lacking.  In this case, the original owner limited herself to a tasteful signature above Herc’s head.  And what a signature it is:

Needless to say, once I spied this young lady’s moniker, there was no question but that I would spare no expense to acquire this lost family treasure (and by ‘spare no expense’ I mean pay up to 80% of guide).  Who is Kathy Eure, you ask?  I have no idea.  But it’s clear that we share more than just a distant ancestral bond.
