  1. Past hour
  2. We were only saying the other week how things were thin on the ground re Charlton pence copies, now there's hope. Nice catch Steve
  3. A murderous model to a loveable model...
  4. Alas, ...are we actually seeing the beginnings of an after-after market NR removal service?
  5. Far from it because the value of high grade books has increased dramatically over the past 10 years, ...victory lap notwithstanding. You're right about OA being popular and having it's own issues, but heated debate over pressing and resubmission of comics has never subsided, not really. What's been done can't be undone, that's true enough, but this could begin a discussion about reexamining the value of books graded prior to the crack & press culture, Newton Rings and billboard labels. IOW, views toward books that haven't been resubmitted yet as part of the bump merry-go-round. Why shouldn't a graded book that hasn't been futzed with three or four times be more desirable to collectors than recently graded copies of the same book with a bumped opinion? If it's about the book and not the grade on the label, wouldn't older grading be more desirable to collectors bidding in auctions? Opinions? Sorry 'bout getting off the beaten path discussing the San Francisco Cap #1 (let's just call this the path less taken).
  6. Saw it tonight on a whim. Hadn't heard of it before. It was ok. Nothing special. Tried to make it much too much like a horror movie. Could have been a LOT better, especially if they'd focused on Not bad, not great.
  7. I whole heartedly have to agree with you on all aspects of your post. Most importantly I would love to see your new list. I very much enjoyed your last list.
  8. Look... there in the corner, that damp patch looks just like a bunny rabbit!
  9. The advisability of referring to CGC's graders as "random strangers" on their own message board aside, I'm pretty sure that's how they would like everyone to see them, too: restoration detection and ease of selling books. The only books that are permanently slabbed in my collection are yellow labels and blue label 9.9s and 10s. Everything else is fair game for either the crack/press/sign/resub, or the straight sale. Comic books don't need to be stored in slabs, and, indeed, take up much more space when doing so.
  10. The Action 1 ad is also in More Fun 32, New Adventure 26-27, and Tec 15,16.
  11. I’ve seen 9.8s with that snip. I guess you’re right and it depends whether there’s a fold to it.
  12. Both! The new releases have brought me back into the realm in all honesty.
  13. Today
  14. I'll be closing this up tomorrow as I'm about to get busy. I'll have another thread in a week probably. The last books available are the pair of TOS #65 & 66. The price was $35, but they are now $25 for the pair. Anyone can claim them until tomorrow when I close up and send invoice messages.
  15. Savage Tales #1 is well under Vampi #1 prices right now. I have to wonder if it’s where Vampi was a few years ago before prices started a steady climb upward. It’s got the “low distribution” tag attached to it, a pretty killer Conan cover, the first appearance and origin of the Man-Thing and it’s a Marvel Mag. Their first really to begin their revived 1970’s magazine line. After Savage Tales Conan gets a nice long Continued run in Savage Sword in 1974.The prices today on it might seem like a steal in few years. Just my opinion...
  16. That doesn't sound right. Could he be confused? Nope. Here is the link to the Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and DC Press Release for the Shazam! 4K UHD Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD Special Edition
  17. There’s no way to tell exactly but a rough guide to CGC copies of Vampi #1 look like this with at least OW/W PQ: CGC 8.0 $1000.00+ CGC 8.5 $1250.00-$1500.00 CGC 9.0 $1500.00-$2000.00 CGC 9.2 $2000.00-$3000.00 CGC 9.4 ? CGC 9.6 $7500.00-? The 9.4 is tough to guess since I haven’t seen one sold for around 5 years. Maybe 5k+ on that one? Also any copies with cream pages like most bronze books feel the hit. A CGC 8.5 with C/OW pages went for $900.00 recently. Just like any copies with White Pages will hit higher.
  18. CGC 9.0’s were around $1500.00 last year and CGC 9.2’s hit as high as $2000.00. PQ is OW/W but I don’t think they did a great job with pictures. I would be disappointed with anything under 2k, would hope for something around $2500.00, and be happy if approaches 3k. But it’s ebay and craziness flows both directions there...
