  1. I respect the dealers in that they have to put in the risk $10k-$50k to get the 3-5% profit margin. Honest assessment because weekend warriors can go to to eBay or the auction houses. So the margin is set/capped at approximately 10 percent give or take. For a sure thing I sell to dealers on high end books.
  2. The internet can never be erased once posted
  3. Amazing spider man annual 1 Cgc 0.5-1.5 Paying gpa
  4. Just don’t expect to flip it in a year. Hold and enjoy and if when it does go up then revisit. If it doesn’t then hopefully it isn’t a big loss. Pretty simple really
  5. Af15s have been good to me. Net effect is in the positive margin for me. buy low, sell high. That being said, everyone come over to the smurfs club spirou 1071. It’s a silver age book thats still low. One can apply the buy low theory still. Smurfs a big pop culture phenomenon similar to spidey but of course on a lower scale
  6. CGC has now started separating the Spirou 1071 either as Belgian or French edition. I guess the first 24 graded were not classified therefore their clumped into 24 graded without specifying if they are the French or Belgian edition

  8. Thanks for your input. I know you have a lot of experience with these so it’s cool that you chimed in
  9. I won the action 1 pages from heritage a few years ago. Had them graded separately. The pages were brittle so I WAS SWEATING BULLETS separating the staples from the pages and bagging and boarding them to send to CGC. The pages had already separated so the staples were not original. Eventually sold all 7 pages of the super man pages. I even offered it here on the boards, on the Sales forum. no interest at all initially. Page 5 seemed to be the most popular. Didn't realize that page 1 had the capability of beating page 5. The moral of the lesson is ask for the Moon and you might get it. Theres not that many action 1s available. I guess its really in the eye of the beholder on which page is more/less desireable
  10. Curious what board members view of the top 3 pages of action 1 are. Price wise page 1 and pg 5(car lift) are number 1 and 2. Which one is #3?
  11. Daredevil 1 Cgc 0.5-1.8 universal blue Paying 12 month gpa average
  12. Batman vs Superman coverles and single pages at its best!!! Maybe if its listed at $15,000 buy it now price, it might fetch closer to $15,000?
  13. Looks good to me Uhhhhh cgc quality control out of whack. I had the same problem with my cap 1 pages only reasonable if they pay your postage and free postage back. Should be walk through speed with re enclapsalation
  14. How about holding on? I’ve had grades in the 5-7.0 in the last 10 years. Always sold them quickly whenever I needed to
  15. Looking for slabbed or raw Spirou 1071
