I have one signed by Gil Kane and Julius Schwartz.

I do, I just don't own a scanner. And I wouldn't want to sully such a glorious book with a phone pic. 8-)

I've always admired your copy, Oak. The colors are beautiful!

Definitely a cool book to have.

SC22 is on the move upwards in all grades. Should be the #2 all-time SA book behind SC4.

Maybe he meant DC only? I think SC #22 has surpassed B&B #28.

I'd prefer SC22 over B&B28. Much cooler cover, and character for that matter. There are so many older DC books out there I just can't take seriously. Sometimes having a DC hero on hand feels like using a top of the line Jaguar just for driving to the end of the driveway and back to get the mail. That's why I was a Marvel kid. Marvel comics actually gave me a reason to care.

In terms of importance, I'll even put FF1 ahead of AF15. I honestly don't have any "fan" interest in B&B28 at all. As for SC4 & 22, I won't say which I think wins for importance to the hobby, but I'd rather have 22. Speedsters are a tricky type of character to get right, and remain consistent. A character that can move so fast that time seems to stop should be unbeatable, period. Yet they always seem compelled to have a conversation with their enemy instead of attacking before the villain's lips even part.

I've heard tell that FF #1 is actually a lot harder to get, as there are less copies out there

Yeah, I think it's going to be very difficult for me to get even a beater.

I believe it has as well. It is currently the #2 DC SA book.
