A Couple Golden Age Purchases

I bought a couple Golden Age comics during the Virtual Comic Convention a few weekends ago and am just now getting around to taking a look at them.  I haven't had a chance to read them yet though.

I bought Vault of Horror #34.  The spine is in pretty rough shape, but I paid about half of what I saw similar copies go for on eBay.  I've always thought these old EC titles were kind of cool so when I saw one at a reasonable price, I grabbed it.  I think  it's too expensive to go after many more though.

I also bought Jumbo Comics #113 from 1948.  It has four or five stories inside.  This copy is in pretty nice shape.  I couldn't find any issues that had sold on eBay, but the only one that was similar in price to this one was in such terrible shape, I wouldn't want to touch it.  It looked like it had mold on it.  Someone is also selling just the front and back cover (no comic) for more than I paid for this one.

I've had pretty good luck selling my duplicate comics on eBay.  I don't have any listed right now, but I plan on listing some more this weekend.
