It has indentation fold lines at the spine, but has never actually been folded or attached to a book. It measures approximately 9" by 12 1/2", and is in very good undisplayed condition, but please note there is some fading/scuffing of the red background color along the left side edge and some bleed-through of the red coloring on the back (as part of the production process, it may have been one of the first covers printed to check/correct the colors and printing). Please note that this is NOT a mass-produced print or lithograph.It is a production art cover that is created during the production process. As the most important price guide in the hobby, The Comic Book Price Guide by Robert M. Overstreet was a game-changer, and this is an incredibly important and early piece.
This is a beautiful historic piece that would look fantastic framed and prominently displayed, and would be a great piece in the collection of any comic book collector. Please note that this is an authentic piece from the 1970's, not something made for a later reprint or collection book.
We have been told there are reprint production art pieces being listed by other sellers that make them seem to be old and from original printings, even though they are not for example, older production art did not have the words on a separate sheet from the images. Those kinds of things were only done much more recently, using computer technology.
We advise buyers to be careful, as there are disreputable sellers tricking many people into believing they are purchasing items that are older and more valuable than what they actually are. Some sellers simply do not state their items are from reprints, while others make very long listings and put a tiny mention about reprints buried deep in the listing, and/or use a hard-to-read font color (like yellow) to prevent buyers from seeing this information. Unfortunately, everything else in the listing the title, pictures of the cover of the comic from the 1st printing, etc.This item is a genuine piece from the'70's, not something made for a reprint.
