You'll be astonished by the overall pleasing quality of this 1960s Marvel "Tales to Astonish" run. Offered are (10) consecutive issues that are all graded by CGC. Aged for more than five decades, this prime package hails from the title's Silver Age super-hero era, when the Hulk and the Sub-Mariner first started sharing space in this series. Featured issues are: #70 (FN-VF 7.0), #71 (VG-FN 5.0), #72 (FN- 5.5), #73 (FN-VF 7.0), #74 (VF- 7.5), #75 (GD-VG 3.0), #76 (VG- 3.5), #77 (VF- 7.5), #78 (FN 6.0) and #79 (VG-FN 5.0).
This new to the market comic offering comes from the estate of a lifetime collector who purchased his collection at time of publication in the 1960s. One of sixty-six such comic book lots in the current H&S May 2020 auction, these Silver Age classics were held by the original owner until his demise last year, at which point his collection was bequeathed to a longtime friend, who though reluctant to let go of his friend's nostalgic possessions, has decided they should be enjoyed by dedicated collectors. Many of the comics that are graded were submitted to CGC c.2001-2003 and along with those that are not graded, were lovingly stored for more than fifty years regardless of condition. Enjoy this vintage selection from the fabulous "Ford Collection."
