  1. Past hour
  2. Looking to make a big purchase and so will be selling my Fantastic Four #49 CGC 6.5 with off-white to white pages. Scans will come this afternoon after work. Sold copies I've seen range from $688 for a 6.5 cream to off-white (5/16/19) to $788 for a 6.5 cream to off-white (11/4/18). I'll do $700 for my copy with the better page quality. First gets the book. No HOS. Payment by PayPal within 24hrs. No returns on CGC graded books. Pics will come later today and possibly some other CGC graded books.
  3. I do want to see this as a film. When I watch the story videos that summarize each game, they definitely convey an interesting story to me.
  4. On April 21st Tristan Esteph posted the on three comics I was selling. I closed the thread on April 22nd and send him the invoice the same day. After not receiving an answer, I sent him a reminder on May 7th He contacted me on May 10th, apologizing for the delay and stating he would pay the day after, May 11th. He did not pay and he contacted me again on May 14th asking me if I still have the comics. The same day, May 14th, I tell him that I still have the comics and I am still waiting for the payment. Still no answer, so on May 15th I send him another reminder, asking for payment within 24h. Still no answer from him, so I sent him a new PM on May 18th informing him that if payment is not sent by May 22nd, I will nominate him for the probation list. He did not answer my new PM and he did not pay.
  5. You should be fine then, good score! As @Buzzetta mentioned, the 1995 Classic Edition 4-Pack rereleased Luke along with Vader, Chewie and Solo. If I recall correctly, one leg is marked Kenner China, the other leg says 1995 LFL. They are actually slightly smaller as well. They do appear in auction lots, often not disclosed properly as being a reissued figure.
  6. My wife has the app downloaded on her phone. I think it's great.
  7. Pricing is a challenge and were constantly refining the values but we're working on some things that might help out with that. I always encourage anyone to reach out if there is pricing that seems off bearing in mind that it is true price guidance, not a precise collection evaluation which I explain in another response in this thread
  8. I hope that's not what my expression comes off as but it was the only stillshot I could take that wasn't blurry. I think in the actual video I was motioning toward a Batman snowglobe
  9. That's reasonable conclusion to make but I would look at it from the angle that its more about what was and is missing from the hobby that is connecting with collectors of every experience level. If you are in the group that only sees this as a speculation app then I invite you to spend some time checking it out for what it really is.
  10. We're getting rooted here and then we'll decide where to go next but I've had some conversations. I appreciate you bringing it up. I know less about the market for collectibles like sportscards but would have no trouble building the database and its good to get a feel for how many would find it useful
  11. I appreciate your concerns. Again, speculation is a single digit percentile of what information exists on the app. To your point about artificially inflating prices, you're right, that is a legitimate concern which is why we don't sell comics on the app or personally on the side. There are no conflicts of interest in providing accurate information and we never say someone should buy this or that. There is no advertising or sponsorships that occur on the app unless it is very clear why that is happening. For example, Neal Adams does a giveaway to get attention on Detective 1000 or Alex Ross does a giveaway for Immortal Hulk to create awareness of his blogpost. The valuation comes from ebay sold prices. We focus only on raw books and take a sample of 8-10 recent high grade sales (more if there is a significant disparity in data, eliminating outliers) to come up with an average. Then we pull back on that number by approximately 10%. The app is meant to be an acquisition resource. If someone can negotiate a book for the values listed and later check to see what its sells for, realizing they got a good deal, chances are they'll be energized about the hobby.
  12. That's funny. "You made me go back and look." Then, "experienced collectors don't need the app." You definitely have the wrong idea about the app. I don't think collecting key issues discourages anyone from reading a comic book and I think if they're inclined to read, they're going to do it. I can tell you that I get emails on a daily basis that express how easily Key Collector helped someone get into comics or back into comics. An email I haven't received yet is someone saying it destroyed their love for comics. If young collectors are using the app then its getting them more engaged in the hobby and in doing so, while being in the community or seeing something that piques their curiosity on the app, there's a better possibility they'll put the effort forth to read. There are a lot of categories that focus on the interesting points of a run and there are plans for future features that helps to onboard readers to titles.
  13. I hate passwords too and since getting into this mobile app game I have about 30 new sign-ins. Its the worst.You can use Facebook if you have it to sign in so that eliminates that problem. Also you can store your password on your phone so that it auto logs you in.
  14. I love little bits of info like this and I added it to the description. Thank you. Also, we don't add every first appearance. There are criteria but we have a lot of first appearances that might not be considered keys to certain collectors. A majority of the keys added since launching have been requests. To your point, we're working on filters that will allow a more personalized experience.
  15. I dont tell anyone to buy anything. I offer concise information
  16. Thank you for the awesome testimonial. This picture is a little embarrassing.
