New Case

Perfect Just received today, it's a thicker book that would have the thicker old case. Centering perfect,no Newton effect, book is secure and not moving, no ripples book is flat with no undo pressure on staples. I could not ask for a better displayed and preserved book. The only problems I'm finding is their more reflective when taking pictures ( that my ceiling reflect on the left ) To see old comments for this Journal entry, click here.

Motor City Comic Con 2013

Met the Man! Went to the Con on Sat. The 18th. The line was wraped around the building to get in. . Had a great time. Met Stan Lee, had him sign a copy of FOOM #17 ( love that cover. Met Colin Baker and Adrain Paul as well, gentelmen all. Managed to get a good deal on a couple of comics as well. A 9.4 copy of Amazing Adventures #11 (1st Beast with fur) and a 6.0 copy of Marvel Mystery #51 ( my second Timely and first War Cover) Met some people from CGC as well (forgive me, I can't remember your names) but they were all great and very friendly. All in all I had a blast To see old comments for this Journal entry, click here. New comments can be added below.

No you didn't

PGX For those who say they are switching to PGX. I will never buy those books. I will be forever in the CGC team. The expertise and quality are there, I will never settle for second best to save a few dollars ...

Big mistake

Original Art I added Marvel Two in One #64 signed by George Perez today. In the 80's I had owned the original art for the cover. I believe I paid $75 dollars for it at the time. I also owned some double slash pages from Ragman and Tarzan by Joe Kubert and Superman Swan pages. I sold them all with my first comic collection for $200 dollars because there wasn't a market for them in 1984. Probably the biggest mistake I ever made.

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 with VF for the books from the 60's I think the quality is still great. TJ.
