    Description

    Comic Book Marketplace Group (Gary Carter/Gemstone, 1991-99). Those pioneers in comic book collecting who brought the hobby where it is today were usually men (and a few women) who grew up in the late 1950s-early 60s Silver Age heyday. Early serious commentary on the medium was first issued in self-published "fanzines" from this group, but later publications, featuring articles and "comics for sale" ads, were more polished affairs, like Gary Carter's Comic Book Marketplace. Our offering is a short box including #2-21 inclusive and 55 other issues, the highest being #74. Of note is the copy of #37, an alternate-cover copy showing the Terrific #5 cover, and an outer wrapper indicating it was for the 1996 AACC annual meeting. Lots of great, informative reading, essential for serious collectors. All issues were subscription copies; later editions come in their mailing envelopes. Overall average condition ranges from VG/FN to NM. Not listed in Overstreet.
