  1. Past hour
  2. OK, gonna kick off the rest of the books, these are all DCs ... Action Comics #266 Fair/Good $14 tape on front cover, tanning
  3. Something that just happened reinforced my belief in this matter... So as some saw I posted some Star Wars and other associated Lego sets this week. I received some views but not a single tire kicker. Now, I have been told before that my prices are too high with certain things. I posted the Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle here for $140. In case anyone made me an offer I would have dropped it probably down to $130 and maybe $125. There were not even any tire kickers... so I pulled them late yesterday afternoon and listed the Harry Potter set on eBay for $155. I am about to box it up as it just sold for that amount. I have no problem selling things I no longer want here and even at a discount... but without that rule listed I really should always be offering everything on eBay first.
  4. Ideally, I would prefer to sell to a fellow collector who would enjoy my collection hopefully as much as I did. However, a sale is a sale and getting what I feel is a fair offer is what matters at the end of the day regardless of selling to a collector or dealer. The one thing I can't stand is selling to someone who claims they are a collector and not a dealer and then just wants to flip the books anyways. I'd rather have you be honest with me from the start. If you want to buy the books to flip that's fine. There are so many posts out there on social media that say they're a collector and sell to them because of that but they're just flippers who don't sell comics full time.

  7. Got some good advice to add more pictures of the intricacies of the book as to ease anyone on the fence or questioning the quality of the book. I understand it's raw and can be dicey buying a book this expensive that way. I wouldn't even be listing this book if funds weren't needed for a more important purchase, it's one of if not my favorite book! With that said, it was bought from a super reputable seller that looked it over for me prior to purchase and assured there was no surprises or restoration. So I am open to offers on the book. The new pictures have been added to the mix. Thanks everyone!
  8. They make a gross profit (i.e. we sell more than the Diamond cost), but not enough to make a net profit when you factor in the staff time, and the overhead cost of the space they occupy.

  12. In no particular order: Yes, no,no,no,yes, yes, yes and yes.
  13. Bingo! Finally decided to have it graded since it was too nice of a copy to read and I figured if I ever sell it then it should be graded. Came back a 9.8 so I guess either the rest of the book was that nice or the printers crease wasn't counted as a defect. This was a really nice looking book raw and the crease was small, pretty much unnoticeable in the CGC case. Honestly, I think this book presented much nicer in hand and in the case than other 9.8's with smaller defects (small bends, small spine tick, extra ink from manufacturer). Just figured I would post in case people were curious about PC and how they affect grading. You can see the PC clearly in the original post above.
  14. Yeah, but I never thought of the Living Tribunal as a key character...
  15. where are our international brethren, many of whom are bound to have seen it by now?!?!?!
  16. You're still young, Chris. I'm 65 now, and have already sold off my entire collection of SA slabs, along with the first few longboxes of Bronze and Copper comics that I bought off the rack. So the mindset of being in a selling mode to raise the cash and free the space is already familiar.
  17. So... Interesting... As I have mentioned I only use the eBay Global Shipping Program to ship internationally. The fees were quite prohibitive especially for a $90 comic book. However, there is absolutely no way I am shipping anything to Brazil without the extra layer of protection that is offered. Aside from that, my fees are assessed only at the $90 as well as the $9 part of the shipping and handling that it costs to send it to Kentucky. I know GSP is not a favorite of many people but for many areas of the world, it is the only method I will use to ship it to certain nations.
