  1. @Phill the Governor hooked me up several years ago. Don't know if he is still doing them but it was a LOT less than $500 a page. I tagged him so he could chime in if he is still active
  2. If I was the owner of the cover and Neal asked for 10$ to promote and encourage bidding, I would consider it. If I felt that Neal was trying to place doubt on its authenticity just so he could strong arm me into giving 10%+, I would tell him to pound sand. I think that's what bothers me th most. He is casting doubt on its authenticity without any basis.
  3. Forgot that clink charges sales tax now. That was an expensive reminder... I will have to factor that in next time.
  4. I loved Garfield as a kid. I will definitely get a strip. If they drop to the $150-250 range, I will grab a bunch
  5. I have not shipped internationally in years. Does anyone have advice? The buyer wants to pay through Paypal and I think they require tracking. However, it appears I would need global priority for tracking and that is like $100. How do people usually handle this? Is there another option? The buyer looks to be legit. He has quite a few pieces up on CAF. He is in Italy. I did a search for "International Shipping" but I didn't find anything. Sorry if this topic has been discussed before.
  6. In the focused Aug 2015 clink auction, that cover sold for $2250.

    $250. Maybe $350 on a good/great day.
  8. I'd be willing to bet that there are more people that love the art than worry about the ROI. The more i think about it, the higher my estimate increases. TWD, especially the first 48 issues, was amazing.
  9. I think this is what he is talking about. Personally, I think it is very hard to predict Adlard TWD pricing nowadays. Pricing seemed to collapse for some pages while others have held value.
  10. I had that page from issue 6. I loved it but let it go because of the yellowing. I was looking for my scan but i cant find it. It was definitely yellow but i am unsure about the marker. If i can find a scan tonight, i will upload. I have to have one somewhere...
  11. I am not basing things solely on number of complaints. I am basing them on my experience as well. The fact that he has a lot of volume does factor into my thinking. I was willing to give him the benefit of the doubt at the beginning. I dealt with him in 2005 or 2006 and bought my beautiful Doomsday splash from him. I will always be grateful for that. But in 2007ish, I bought a GL page from him. That transaction left me less than satisfied. I didn't buy again from him until 2012. I placed two orders within days of each other. I paid twice for shipping because I knew he was busy and I didn't want to bother him with coordinating the two orders. Besides, one order was before the sale and the other was after. He sent one package and I thanked him. I asked about my second order. He said it was included in the first box. I felt like he was accusing me of trying to rip him off. I was shocked. The missing art amounted to about 150 bucks. The art I received was significantly more valuable. After a couple of days the art arrived. The whole time he couldn't find a record of the package. In his last email, he talked about having a stern conversation with his assistant. That kind of put me off. If he had read my emails, he should have been able to track the package easily. The reason I spoke out after all this time is because I can definitely see how miscommunication occurred. The OP has communication issues. I believe that Spencer does as well. Putting both together is just a recipe for disaster. All that said, I wouldn't completely rule out doing business with him again. I think he is rude and disorganized but I do think he is honest as well.
