1979 Popeye the Sailor Oct #151 Western Comic Bag Board VG Free US Shipping
Now to the store shelf comes this comic book.
These originated with a gentleman who previously owned and operated a card and comics shop. Representing some of the left overs that ended up in boxes in his spare room, an incredible find for the collector.
The treasure trove he dropped off included numerous collectible items. This tidbit represents one of the terrific items again available for sale.
All comics stored/shipped in bag with hard back unless otherwise indicated. Bag may or may not be of archival quality.

Condition Definitions (Source - Overstreet Comic Price Guide #32)
- Mint - Near perfect in every way. Only the most subtle bindery or printing defects allowed. Cover is flat with no surface wear. Cover inks are bright with high reflectivity and minimal fading. Corners are cut square and sharp. Staples are generally centered, clean with no rust. Paper is supple and fresh. Spine is tight and flat.
- Near Mint - Nearly perfect with only minor imperfections. No corner or impact creases, almost invisible stress marks. Bindery tears less than 1/16 inch. A couple of very tiny color flecks, or a combination of the above that keeps the book form being perfect, where the overall eye appeal is less than Mint drops the book into this grade. Only the most subtle binding and/or printing defects allowed. Cover is flat with no surface wear. Cover inks are bright with high reflectivity and minimum of fading. Corners are cut square and sharp with ever so slight blunting permitted. Staples are generally centered and firmly secured to interior pages. Paper is supple and like new. Spine is tight and flat.
- Very Fine - A excellent copy with outstanding eye appeal. Sharp, bright and clean with supple pages. Cover is relatively flat with almost no surface wear. Cover inks are generally bright with moderate to high reflectivity. Staples may show some discoloration. Spine may have a couple of almost insignificant transverse stress lines and is almost completely flat. A barely unnoticeable 1/4 inch crease is acceptable, if color is not broken. Pages and covers can be yellowish/tannish (at the least, but not brown and will usually be off-white to white).
- Fine - An above-average copy that shows minor wear but is still relatively flat and clean with no significant creasing or other serious defects. Eye appeal is somewhat reduced because of slight surface wear and possibly a small defect such as a few slight cross stress marks on spine or a very slight spine split (1/4"). A Fine condition comic book appears to have been read a few times and has been handled with moderate care. Compared to a VF, cover inks are beginning to show a significant reduction in reflectivity but it is still highly collectible and desirable book. Pages and interior covers may be tan, but pages must still be fairly supple with no signs of brittleness.
- Very Good - The average used comic book. A comic in this grade shows some wear, can have a reading or center crease or a moderately rolled spine, but has not accumulated enough total defects to reduce eye appeal to the point that it is not a desirable copy. Some discoloration, fading and ever minor soiling is allowed. As much as 1/4" triangle can be missing out of the corner edge. A missing square piece (1/8" by 1/8") is also acceptable. Store stamps, name stamps, arrival dates, initials, etc. have no effect on this grade. Cover and interior pages can have some minor tears and folds and the centerfold may be detached at one staple. The cover may also be loose, but not completely detached. Common bindery and printing defects do not affect grade. Pages and inside cover may be brown but not brittle. Tape should never be used for comic book repair; however many VG comics have minor tape repair.
- Good - A copy in this grade has all pages and covers, although there may be small pieces missing inside; the largest piece allowed from front or back cover and is a 1/2" triangle or a square 1/4" by 1/4". Books in this grade are commonly creased, scuffed, abraded, soiled and may have as much as a 2" spine split, but are still completely readable. Often paper quality is low but not brittle. Cover reflectivity is low and in some cases completely absent. This grade can have a moderate accumulation of defects but still maintains its basic structural integrity.
- Fair - A copy in this grade is usually soiled, ragged and possibly unattractive. Creases, tears and/or folds are prevalent. Spine may be split up to 2/3rds its entire length. Staples may be gone. Up to 1/10th of the front cover may be missing. These books are readable although soiling, staining, tears, markings or chunks missing may moderately interfere with reading the complete story. Some collectors consider this the lowest collectible grade because comic books in lesser condition are usually defaced and/or brittle. Very often paper quality is low and may have slight brittleness around the edges but not in the central portions of the pages. Comic books in this grade may have a clipped coupon so long as it is noted along side of the nomenclature; i.e. "Fair (1.0) Coupon Clipped.: Valued at 10-70% of good.
- Poor - Most comic books in the grade have been sufficiently degraded to the point that copies may have extremely severe stains, missing staples, brittleness, mildew or moderate to heavy cover abrasion to the point that some cover inks are indistinct/absent. Comic books in this grade can have small chunks missing and pieces out of pages. They may have been defaced with paints, varnishes, glues, oil, indelible markers or dyes. Covers may be split the entire length of the book, but both halves must be present and basically still there with some chunks missing. A page(s) may be missing as long as it is noted along side of the nomenclature; ie: "POOR (0.5) 2nd Page Missing." Value depends on extent of defects but would average about 1/3 of GOOD.
