  5. Honestly, I think that the prices listed on generic Kirby pieces are “organically” high, and this sort of analysis supports my thinking. Don’t forget that he could churn out as many as 3 pages per day at Marvel, when 1 is considered good. That means there is an awful lot of material, and some of it can’t be too good.
  6. Cool story and one well worth going the extra mile for!

  9. You can Google images of graded copies. Some copies of SM #17 show a bit more of the right side, but given the typical production cut of this issue this appears to be within the margin of error. Note: The right bottom corner does look odd in the photo, but that may just be an image distortion caused by a slight forward bend on the bottom right edge as indicated by both back and front cover images. Barring other issues, that book might press to better than mid-grade. Since it's been over a year since the original post, I wonder if it's been graded in the interim?
  10. Im not interested in buying these video games.... however, I don't agree pristine copies now slabbed and selling for huge numbers are somehow invalidated because they may have been unsold store stock. Thats never been a consideration that trumps condition before in comics or baseball cards, or movie posters etc etc. If a box of unsold Marvels comics from 1961 turned up today, would these books in miraculously high grade be less valuable than Curator or Western Penn copies because they never circulated? How about the cases of 1952 Topps that contained around 40 Mantle rookies? Is no one buying them because they weren't left untouched in a kids sock drawer for 50 years and not in bicycle spokes or a plastic slab? Or movie posters obtained from a printer but never displayed in a theatre lobby the sat in a collectors flat files ? Mint condition is mint condition, and when the demand is there they will sell for big dollars regardless of how they survived. What I would be concerned about with toy and game packaged collectibles would be re-cellophane wrapped items. If done right aren't there extremely hard to tell apart from real plastic wrapping? assuming there are opened pieces in HG so as not to be obvious used VGs in new plastic.
  11. Better late than never - an entertaining roundup of eBay's top sales from Sep to Dec 2019!
  12. which number one did you get? Famous Funnies Series 1 with panels separated by angled straight borders? or Famous Funnies #1 with the golfing cover?
  13. Yes, but isn't this really what it's all about and where the real fun is, like in this following set of pictures here: Yet, even with all of that handling, the Fantastic 3 was still able to acheive a grade of CGC 9.4 NM when it came time to have it graded.

  15. Thanks for organizing the show Kevin. It definitely looked busier. Family zone was a great idea too, after I was done my stuff in the first day, I just brought my son back to have him enjoy family zone the other 2 days. Malvin
  16. Yep, it was from the Pedigree auction. I'm glad the ow-w pages scared you away. The hammer price was pretty reasonable.
  17. Sorry about your friend . He sound like a wonderful guy. All men over 40 should go and get checked for colon cancer . Could you share the story for the “Paul” collection ? It’s the first time i have heard about it.
  18. Thanks man! And yeah, there was lots of fun to be had at that meeting
  19. Awesome! And great story I was late back to the collecting game, more around 2014 for me. I know that Barnes and noble carried some newsstands, not any around me, or I checked and never saw any but B&N was an outlet and one of the last to carry newsstands. Glad to hear about you meeting Jock!
  20. I never collected Shadow but recent focus on Pulps made this amazing Rozen babe cover stand out... One of the cooler covers in the run... Actually not much good girl art in the run so love this...
  21. How's that possible? Jon McClure only discovered them in 1998...
