  1. Nah, a sales thread sounds like too much work and I am still filling gaps, if I sold anything I would be compelled to fill that gap again
  2. 10 years ago I gave away about 100k+ books, not sure where that leaves me now but still too many. This what I have left not including the loft and garage
  3. I have a few Bernie Wrightson books and his sig is not identical on any of them, I think its genuine Soz about the poor pic but I cant scan slabs
  4. If you dont live in the US and want to buy here, it can be tough, some sellers wont sell elsewhere as its too expensive, too risky etc Reputation is everything here and the Kudos thread can make a tiny bit of difference, not much but it has made the difference in some deals. Thanks to all the boardies who have sold me great books over the years
  5. A few years ago I was taking pics of my Tomb of Dracula #1 (9.8 candidate ) before sending it to CGC and missed the bag as I put it back in and caused a 2" rip in the cover didnt send it in after that. Before I knew better I caught the bag tape on the front of a Amazing Spidey #100 and caused a big tape pull - I now always remove the tape before taking it out of the bag Just today I was climbing down the ladder in my comic room and walked backwards in to 3 boxes of slabs piled up waiting to be sorted, put all my weight on the top box and heard lots of cracking, just shut the door and walked away, dont have a clue what is in there or the extent of the damage
  6. I think I have 3 or 4 but cant remember what they are This is the only one I can find
  7. Yeah I could do with a Batman 181 too, mine is still sealed and doesnt fit into my filing cabinet and my OCD goes into overdrive when I think of the gap
  8. Showcase #4 is pretty much the only silver age book that I dont own, I could have bought a HG copy back in the day but thought it was overpriced and it would come down eventually, that ship has long since sailed I dunno why I havent bought it, maybe it would finish my collection and end my collecting bug. I still need a lot of GA, so anything from 1940s I guess for the others
  9. PS Artbooks I picked up a lot of these Hardcovers for around $10-$20 on ebay a year or so ago, the reproduction is great on some and not so much on others but still a cheap way to just read the stories
  10. All Marvel complete up to the 1990s except a few gaps in the romance and war titles DC mostly complete from the mid 1950s to the 1990s Most other companies I have long runs with a few gaps here and there from the 1960s onwards
  11. My copy is the only copy I found in the wild in 30 years, seen a few from time to time on ebay in low grade but not plentiful by any means here in the UK either tbh
