LCS in Orlando. They bought it off a collector and I took it off their hands.

I'm pretty stoked about it

Congrats, but I'm still jealous over your NM Annual #2 grade.

Doesn't the high humidity cause fits on the books?

lol no.. The humidity doesn't persist everywhere(indoors)

There are so many assumptions about Florida/Weather/Collectibles that make me laugh.

True but we all know how older folks don't keep the house as cool or as warm as they should.

When I was big into paper currency you should have heard the misconceptions at bid conventions I would attend in Chicago and Baltimore... people would always say you can't get any high grade notes in Florida because the humidity would ruin them.

Then notice that one of the largest currency graders is in Sarasota lol

Yeah I'm in St. Louis so basically the humidity is the same except during winter months. I still hold to older folks tend to not keep their homes at a reasonable temp, its like its a game like my grandparents did all the time thinking they would save a bunch of money.

BTW I'm not sure if anyone has brought this up here but remember the bags from the late 80's and 90's that lots of shops had (poly bags I think). Anyways I found a few comic books that weren't worth anything but were stored in those bags and I got to tell you not only were the bags yellowed already but the comic books looking dingy inside. I would think many books are stored in basements or storage lockers in some of these old bags would affect the number of high grades that are out there. They are nowhere near as strong, thick, or sturdy like the bags today. Any thoughts?
