These are CGC professional graded copies of the Captain America comic book covers i did in 2002. CGC (Certified Guaranty Company )will take a comic book and three professional graders will go over them, then the three totals are averaged out to make it a fair and correct grading. The grades run from 1 which is the worst, to 10 which is near mint. The book is then “slabbed”, which means it encased in a protective casing and is un-openable which will preserve the grading as authentic till the end of time. these CGC’s are “signature series” which means i was in Sarasota to at their offices to sign my signature with a grader witnessing me. This way not only is the condition graded, but the signature is authenticated as well. These are very high graded books, 9.4 to 9.6.

with the coop! got to meet alice cooper at the rock hall today for the unveiling of his new pinball machine…pictured left to right, alice cooper, ashley, me and dennis dunaway (alice cooper band).
now…my first alice cooper record, which was the second record i bought (kiss destroyer was first) was ‘welcome to my nightmare’, yes i was a late bloomer, but give the kid a break i was 13…anyway, i quickly got up to speed with acquiring the back catalog…thanks to my friend craig who was an amazing shop lifter. anyway welcome to my nightmare is an awesome record, i know some folks (yes the some folks song is on there), the purist frowned on it because it was the first record he did without the alice cooper band. as a kid, the song ‘steven’ made a huge impression, especially when smoking a substance (yes i did that as a kid). the art work is amazing as well, the painting of alice on the cover is really well done, no flaws, i especially like the way the hands were done, if you know what i’m talking about, you know what i’m talking about. alice continued to put out great work, i’m especially drawn to a few that we’re underrated, ‘flush the fashion , ‘da da’, and ‘special forces’, which i was lucky enough to see that tour in a venue in cleveland that was called the ‘front row’. the front row was one of those places that was small and in the round. the stage was round and the seats where all around it, the stage slowly rotated, very cool, i miss that place.
