Concrete finisher by day and comic collector and CBR vampire by night
Hey out there, As most of you know or well the Marvel collectors know that back the in the 1974 - 1976, Marvel ran a promotional progrom known as Marvel Value Stamps, Series A and Series B. These stamps are the bane of many a collector including me. I recently found this web site dedicated to Marvel Stamps.
With the help of the web site I was able to go through my collection and check on the books that had stamps in them. Much to my dismay I found many books with these little stamps cut out or the entire page ripped out of the comic. Reducing some of my VF-NM comics to a nice G-VG or if you get them CGCed a GLOD(Green Label Of Death). I now need to replace this comics in my collection. I now hate Marvel Stamps and Marvel for doing this. and the comics being from the 1970's are not cheap to replace.
So if you have old Marvel comics in your collection or are into collecting 1970's Marvel, I suggest that you check out that site. Also check the books you buy to may sure that these little stamps haven't gone missing.. Could be the difference between $100 or $10 for the comic.
POI- Hulk 181 is one of the books with a marvel stamp
