MY MEMORABILIA COLLECTION
Books, Framed Items, and Magazine Conditions:
Fine (F) – Much like As New in condition, except that the book has been opened or (carefully) read.
Very Good (VG) – Shows signs of use, but is still a very nice copy.
Good (G) – A good condition book should have all pages present and a fully intact cover. It can show significant wear, including wear to the dust jacket, boards, or text block.
Fair – Noticeable wear, with the potential for non-essential pages to be missing or damaged. All other pages and illustrations should be present.
Poor – Significant wear, damage, or flaws. The book’s full text is still readable.
Prices: see individual packages. All prices will get shipping charges added unless the packages will be picked up in the Los Angeles area.
