Whats wrong with 8.0!!!

Where does Mid-grade end and High-grade begin? I have noticed in the new Overstreet Price Guide 8.0 Silver Age Comics have gone slightly down in price. This has not been my experince in the market place on Ebay or elsewhere. And can I get some feedback from fellow collecters out there where does high grade begin for the Silver age I keep getting different opions on the subject. Some say 8.0-8.5 others say 9.2. I would love to have a collection of all NM Silver Age Comics but I am very happy wi

The feeling is like a peak of a rollercoaster

...and now time for the ride! I tell ya, it's something to attain #1 over the years of collecting, especially with a series that has more than 4 issues and a vast of varients. It was a learning experience, and expensive one also. MARVEL MADNESS, your a great person, and thank you for your offers on comics on LADY DEATH. You unknownly set a goal for me, and I attained that goal. It's funny, I finish up my collection just as I finish up my career in the Air Force. All the best to you and yo

Its NM price is a wopping $10,000!!! that thousands of dollars more than the one before it or even after it.

Did you know???

Comics have (----) in them which makes them rot. Old comics have acid in there pages because pulp paper was used, the acid eats away at the comic itself, and no matter how hard you try, comics will eventually eat away at themselves. Thats is why comics are made with waxed paper now so they cant rot away at themselfs. Thx for reading and hope you will read some more of my articles.

amazing spider-man collection almost there

yay cant wait From Amazing Spider-man 1 to present i am missing 44 issues and out of the entire collection i have 101 cgc. It took two generations and a whole lot of money but it's worth it. In a couple of weeks i'll be taking my family to the NY Comic Con in Javitts and hope to narrow my missing issues to half. What's even cool, Stan "The Man" Lee is going to be there. Last year it was impossible to get his signature but hoping to get it this year even if it does cost 200 to get his signature

Too close to #1

...so I sent my LADY DEATH's in! I keep looking at those empty spaces in my registry, and it just bugs the hell out of me. I had (yes, past tense) the comics for grading, but one thing or another prevented me from actually sending them out (alright, it was the wife) BUT APART FROM THAT, I started adding up some possible registry points, and realized that I'm not too far off from getting #1 in the Lady Death set. Yes, I'll have to claim temporary insanity and sell some things later, but, wel

Iron Man and Sub-Mariner # 1

This is my "pet" comic book. I can find a reason to like ANY comic book, but this particular Issue was one that I could not afford when I was a young boy. I vowed that one day that I was going to own at least one. And keep it forever. This IMSM was a "true" one-shot - it was never intended to go to Issue # 2. Marvel Comics had just obtained permission to add extra titles to their Statements of Publications, so they gave Captain America and the Hulk their own titles immediately. But Marvel could

Incredible Hulk 172 CGC 9.6

Latest addition. What can I say? I love high grade Marvel comics from the 1970's featuring guest appearances of my favorite characters and GREAT covers like this! Hulk #172 CGC 9.6= $200. Hulk and Juggernaut smashing through a wall together causing untold amounts of destruction= priceless. This is what comic book collecting should be! Sure, if you're lucky you can find a Hulk #181 CGC 5.0 for around the same price, but keep in mind there are currently 2976 copies of that book on record at t

How to identify a lost Green River pedigree book!

TALES TO ASTONISH #75 Green River! Because of the ubiquitous date stamps on these books, it's possible to identify slabbed and raw books that lost their pedigree label or were never slabbed as a pedigree book from the collection. This copy of Tales to Astonish #75 is the latest addition to the worlds top Green River Collection. It was spotted on a dealers website and identified by the date stamp, (in faint red - just below the white box with the number 75) which was a dead ringer for the dat

Brand New Day

Spidey's Brand New Day I just got my Amazing Spider-man# 546 (CGC 9.6) The Brian Hitch Variant cover and read finally read a non cgc issue. Is anyone out there happy with the results? How many times does Aunt May have to be reincarnated? The timeline has got me lost. So "The Other"no longer exists? Peter Parker goes back to web shooters? What was Joe Quesada thinking of resetting time. Sure he wiped out the whole Civil War incident. But at what cost? At least bring back Gwen Stacy.

CGC lessons learned

Collecting CGC books is not so easy. When I first started collecting CGC books about a year ago I thought, OK, the first thing I'll do is go through my 1500+ comics and slab my favorite books if they are in decent condition. Some I even sent to be pressed to get the best possible grade (note- for those who may not know, "pressing" is the process of flattening your book and getting the creases/spine roll out...this process is not considered "restoration" so you will still get a Universal Blue l

How did I start collecting Moderns?

Bronze Age collector gets sucked into great Zombie series. A few years ago, I admit...I collected all of the Ultimate titles...but I didn't really enjoy or even read the titles. This time...it's different. Thanks to the CGC Boards, I've been sucked into a popular series of Zombie survival. With all of the Zombie craze lately, you might think I'm referring to Marvel Zombies or some of the other short lived mini series. Nope, I'm talking about The Walking Dead... In short, I purchased the TP
