My Harvey Collectibles (19) Casper Glass / 9.8 Condition

The never ending collection... As a Harvey collector there are a vast number of items that Harvey produced along with comic books. From promotional posters,games,toys, and just about anything you can imagine Harvey put out many items in the effort to sell their line of comic books. Most of the items in my collection are in what I would refer to as being in 9.8 condition and the rest are pretty close. I have taken a photograph of all my items to display here and strive to replace any that don't

Speaking Of Rare Ones

Don't Have it Just Yet At the moment I'm bidding on the Adventures Of Bob Hope 106, 1967, CGC 4.0, signature series signed by Neal Adams. These Bob Hope issues done by Adams are probably the most difficult books to find of all the work he did back in his heyday. This is the only one for this issue on the census, which tells you how hard it is to find in high grade. I won't even add it to my registry set if I win it due to the low grade.

GRADED

The word I have been hoping for... I currently have 5 different submissions into CGC and have been waiting, what feels like, forever. Today though, one order finally showed that lovely term we all love... Graded! It's just 3 modern comics, submitted on June 6th, and includes wonderful news! X-Men 205 Campbell Variant is a 9.8 White Pages New Avengers 17 Variant is a 9.8 White Pages - This is the X-Men 101 homage, one of my all time favorite covers... and one sad note: New Mutants A

Part 1 of 2

or Part 2 of 2??? Sometimes suspense is good. The kind a comic book gives you when you have no idea what is going to happen next. Sometimes it is at the end of an auction that you really want to win. And sometimes it is when you go to sleep and you have no idea what the morning is going to bring. Today was a lazy day, although I did accomplish a few items around the home I did so with the new Batman Trilogy I picked up on Blue Ray. I tend to pick up books from sets I want to complete. I have t

A Rock No More

This is NOT comic related, other than the path I described is what I sued to walk to the comic book shop. This is just something I had to share after the bad new received today. I had a dream this afternoon. During my slumber I dreamed of a location that I went to many times in my youth. This area was wooded, beautiful and serene. I walked this path between the ages of six until I was in my late teens. The only reason why this path existed was because so many people used it. This path crossed

Placing a Bid...Again

Or OK I know I said I wasn't going to bid on a book but... I couldn't resist. I saw a book that I liked. The page distinction wasn't that great but it was a copy of Daredevil #16. The book was graded by CGC at an 8.5. I decided to see what I could afford and tapped out at $135. The book was won at only a few dollars more. Could I have bid higher, sure, but then I'd be scrambling more than I am. With work slow and a vigorous plan to pay off what I owe a bit sooner than later winning that book

Science Fiction

So much more fun in the 50's and early 60's In the days when we truely knew nothing about the moon, the other planets in our solar system (remember Pluto?), or the bottom of the sea - I find those science fiction comics fun, or more fun than the current batch of sci-fi anyway. I'm really pleased with my recent acquisitions and the books I have at CGC or on their way back from CGC at the moment. My House of Mystery 133, is coming back as a 9.0 white. I just added a bunch of Strange Advent

My little Gamble

Or JACKPOT-JACKPOT-7 There's always pros and cons of any transactions. The books that I bought are going to be a long time to "flip". It's ok I need the learning curve. There are some books that I've viewed and thought, well they suck. Then of course there are others that I feel I have a chance and yes if takes money to make money. I have read the added commentary on my previous journal and for those offering to help I will get in contact with you. Thus however will be after the new year. No

NYCC: OK, I'm Scared

or, How can I get away with not telling my Dad how much I spent? The NYCC was the third major convention I went to this year. I only had a month to save up some kind of funds to go to the show properly. The transportation, although a minor financial setback, only cost me $80. Money I could have spent at the show but money if not spent I never would have been at the show. I am horrendously well erased in creating and recreating a budget. I kept in my mind how much I was spending never bother ad

Sending in Digital Copies

Or Just Tongue in Cheek. When digital copies first started to come onto the scene I thought it would be great for comic books to have a free digital copy. Since Marvel has been doing what I dreamed of on certain books I took advantage of this offer. I've been using those codes for the books I want to write about. I am also curious as to whether or not they will get a Blue Universal label or a Qualified Green label once the peel away is well, um peeled away. I haven't yet sent any of those book

Five Business Days

or So Far so good Just for the hell of it I decided to check my status, OK I actually been doing this every day since I turned the books over to CGC at the NYCC. On the seventeenth, the day I was charged the books were all in the received category. Two of my invoices jumped to "verified" rather quickly and today when I checked my New Mutants #54 was scheduled for grading. I was nervous cracking this book for signatures but I was also excited and decided that this would be worth the extra te

CGC trends for 2012

Or Why in the World did I get this Book Graded? Hey Guys, Although I have bought, sold, and collected comics since I am about 15(I am now 41), this was my first full year delving into CGC books. That being the case I only have this past year to gauge my progress and to see what kind of trends and economic practices have taken place. I also only sell on E-bay, since it is very easy compared to other sites and is the least expensive, or at least comparable. So my question is, do you see many m

WTF Spiderman!!!

Issue 700 1:200 Variant About a month ago I scored a spot in gaining a copy of the 1:200 Amazing Spider-Man #700 from a store in Austin, TX by paying a preorder amount of $160. This is a copy of the Ditko Variant of Spider-Man swinging in all his glory. As many may know I'm a variant addict. Usually the 1:25's I pass on without a second thought but know that I have a 1:100 or higher and the idea that its more rare is what intices me to usually go out and spend that extra dollar. So today m

1 year later....

after starting comics last year, this is my 1 year celebration. After I got big into comics almost a year ago and started learning the history of them I found myself in a comic frenzy. I was happy looking at all the old comics and how much I just wanted them all, after a while I was able to distinguish certain comics just from their covers. From number 1's to first appearances to back in the day big deals. After looking at both the 2 big names, DC and Marvel I found that I was a total DC fa

What if I'm Wrong?

Or is it a Sapling or an Oak? I have confirmation that my X-Men #109 is a Sugnature Series 9.8. The thing is this is only confirmed in my status area and not in the census. There is a mention of a 9.8 restored on the census but nowhere is there a mention about a 9.8 signature. I do know that a purple label can have a signature on it but wouldn't that be mentioned on the invoice. The books are on their way and although they will be delivered on Thursday, I won't get them to Wednesday of next

When is the Copper Age?

Or the newest set I want to complete. Every comic age seems to have a transitional period between the new and the old. Without argument, it is safe to say the Golden Age of comics began with Action Comics #1 which introduces Jerry Siegal and Joe Shuster's Superman. The Silver Age also unarguably begins with Showcase Comics #4 in 1956 with a reinvigorated Flash, but the definitive end of the Golden Age was never mentioned. Did it fizzle out, maybe linger on beyond its time, or did the last pa
