Owner's Description

An amazing book with perfect cover centering and orientation, and with pure white pages. In June 2014 only 6 books were graded 9.8 and none better, so this book is nearly as rare as albino white rhinoceros in African Congo - and probably one of the finest of the 6 books due to it's pedigree status and pure White Pages (and no date stamps).

The book contains the first New Vulture (Blackie Drago) appearance in "The Wings of the Vulture." Script by Stan Lee, art and cover by John Romita Sr. Reprinted in Marvel Tales # 34 and 188. Cover price $0.12.

Furthermore this book is part of the Curator Pedigree Collection:

"The Curator pedigree is arguably the first or second best collections in existence when concerning Silver Age books. The books are among the highest and even some of the absolute highest graded books around. Its breadth includes some pre-hero books from the early 1950’s (the early books are not of top tier quality) to the 1980’s. The books were not exceptionally well preserved by the owner until November of 1962. The collection is well known for its high grade Silver Age runs of Marvel and DC books.
The Curator collection bears the highest known existing copy of X-men #1 (CGC graded at a 9.8) and Tales of Suspense #47 (CGC graded at a 9.9). A great deal of the collection is unaccounted for as it has largely been split up. The current whereabouts of many of the Curators is unknown either for books being unaccounted for, or the current owner not wanting to be revealed to the public.
The collection was owned by a man who was not ignorant to the potential value of comics, and knew that their condition was a great influence to their value. This knowledge of comics led to a very strange method of storage which was unheard of for its time. The books were stored in a walk-in vault of a museum in what is called, “bricks”. A “brick” is a group of five comics packed together as tightly as possible in a bag. This tight packing is what gives the Curators their amazing spine and crispness."
