Topic: Comic Book History
TODAY'S FEATURE IS BLOG #3882 - I noticed that the archived blog post of mine from Saturday, December 1st of 2007 was seeing several hits during this week.
The format of the blog was in the eBay blog format, so it doesn't appear too well in this newer Tripod blog format. So I'm going to re-blog it here, and post a link to where YOU can purchase an OWL Card for a minimal amount!
Here's the original post:
'Whiteness' Guide For Collectors of Comic Books !!
However, after you have checked out your comics with the OWL Card, and find that you want to upgrade to a better grade of the comic book, check out our CGC encapsulated comic books in our eBay Featured Comic Book Store for high grade collectibles!
Here is a little more history of the card since the above blog was posted:
Originally produced in conjunction with the First Edition of The Overstreet Comic Book Grading Guide, the OWL (or "Overstreet's Whiteness Level") Card is a comic book grading tool used to evaluate paper color.
Okay, so much for the history of the OWL Card... So where do YOU get one?
Well... the Gemstone Publishing company appears to be selling the card via their web site online. Here is the link to where you should be able to purchase a card.
Have some fun with the OWL Card!
