Fantastic Four #19

I think I've been too anxious to buy something lately.  I bought this Fantastic Four #19 on eBay based on one picture and not much of a description.  For the price, it was a good deal, but it's not quite in the shape I would have liked it to be.

I normally shy away from an auction if the picture or description isn't complete and clear.  The book has some pretty bad spine roll, not very noticeable on the front, but horribly noticeable on the back.  Spine roll is one of my pet peeves, and normally don't buy books with the defect.

Anyway, the cover really isn't in bad shape, but there are two rips from the spine, almost an inch long, that goes through all the pages.  But it's complete, presentable and readable.  I paid about half the book value of this issue in Good condition, so overall, I'm satisfied.  Not thrilled.  But satisfied.
