I just purchased a huge lot of comics...

a whole lot of nothing Just purchased another lot of 18 long boxes of copper/modern comics. While I could post pics of your regular DC/Marvel keys from this time period like everyone else, I thought it would be interesting to see some of the more eclectic stuff from this era. This collection had a lot of independent books which I had never seen. To see old comments for this Journal entry, click here. New comments can be added below.

one week has passed since I moved into grading...nada yet

I guess I'll just keep waiting I've been waiting over a week for second set of books I submitted (15 book value) during C2E2 to go from graded to shipped/safe but nothing. In the meantime another set (modern, also submitted during C2E2) went from verified to scheduled to graded during this week. How much longer...? My wife has convinced me not to look at the grades when they've shipped but we agreed she would look and tell me for both sets the highest score and the lowest score. ARGH! Will follow up when they have arrived. To see old comments for this Journal entry, click here. New comments can be added below.

first times...they can be painful, joyous...satisfying and incomplete.

submitted my first 4 books...finally got the results quick summary...having been reading comics for over 30+ years. Got hooked on Spider-man, though eventually my brother's influence of Claremont's X-men won me over. went away and sold off all my collections time and time again but this time I'm back for good. I've read and collected almost all the main characters for both DC/Marvel, but I eventually came back to my first, Spider-Man. I'll tell the early stories later on, but today I was finally able to see what my first 4 submissions (using the coupons) yielded. I submitted ASM 121, ASM 41, and ASM 26. I also submitted an Iron Man 55. I obtained the ASM from a guy who purchased a storage locker, he ended up selling me about 100+ ASM comics, of which these 3 were a part of. I've been selling the lower grade, non key issues on ebay for months and using the money to obtain higher grade/key Marvel issues. Based on my grading, and those of other CGC copies I found on the internet, I predicted ASM121 at a 8, ASM41 at a 7.5 and ASM26 at a 7 The Iron Man comic I purchased from a local comic book store at a convention. The dealer said it was a very good to fine, however I thought for sure it was a 5.5 at best. So I handed those comics in at C2E2, along with about 30 others (Economy Tier) and have been checking the site every day since. Well the first 4 finally shipped. The scores; ASM 121 = Universal 7.0 (white pages) ASM 41 = Universal 8.5 (white pages) ASM 26 = Universal 7.5 (off white to white) and Iron Man 55? QUALIFIED 5.5. It appears there is a page missing AKA INCOMPLETE. I never bothered to look. I never do, I keep getting burned when I pick something up and forget to look and count the pages. Well at least the big winner was ASM41. I thought it looked good when I saw it, definitely a keeper. The other 3 will probably be sold and the money used to obtain a higher end ASM121. Moving forward, I will count the pages. 1,2,3,4,5....36. To see old comments for this Journal entry, click here. New comments can be added below.
