  1. Why not both if you’re local (or localish)?
  2. Normally I’d agree, but if the convention center rolls the con’s money over to 2021 then that puts the con in a sticky spot. I’ve seen several shows in that position, but if requested they usually do process refunds on a case by case basis.
  3. I imagine it was! Congrats, that’s a great book! I’m quite content with my 6.0 I bought raw and had graded, picked up at the first show I’d been to in over a decade (grad school and collecting don’t often mix). Anyone get any of those nice Strange Tales on Comic Connect last night? I put in bids I was only slightly uncomfortable with and managed to go 0-7. Figured I’d get at least one but .
  4. I’d prefer a 6.0-7.0, but this copy will make me very happy for the time being. I’ve been spending a lot lately as well, and may have a few more bids come in by the end of the week. It’s been a great, but expensive, month for auctions!
  5. ASM #17 comes to mind for this as well. I’d like a copy that has a nice stretch of blue to the right of the number box and a full ear on the guy in the lower right corner.
  6. I was the underbidder, but the winner got it for a full hundred above me. No telling what their max was, but it was stout. My bid was above my comfort zone and still didn’t get the job done. While surfing last night I found a 5.5 copy on Comic Connect that I ended up getting to salve the wound. Considerably less expensive than the 8.0!
  7. Looks like that 7.0 was a smokin deal at that price, the 8.0 went for double that. And not to me.
  8. Very envious of anyone who gets to attend this. Already counting the days to June and that makeup show happens.
  9. Kind of assuming this book will have a 1 in front, but I hope I'm wrong...
  10. I can see that. Hard to judge without the book in hand.
  11. I think you answered your own question there. 9.0+ with damage can be a 7.0. My 3.5 would be a 9.0+ as well if not for all the spine stress and creasing.
  12. Yes (was just messing with you, by the way), but technically the PHM crowd would be expected to present the biggest possible source of competition... I’m not sure I have a realistic shot anyway, that book is tough even without the 8.0 in the upper corner. The nosebleed grade makes it even worse.
  13. Oh goodie, now everyone can bid me up.
  14. That’s why I added “respectfully”, to each his/her own.
  15. I’ve never been to a panel either.
  16. I respectfully disagree. I'd go to a con every weekend if I could.
  17. Could still be one, I could see him becoming an influencer over this. Millions of views and mountains of ad revenue.
  18. Pretty spectacular week for my Strange Tales run. Picked up nice books from @RICK STARR and @Sweet Lou 14 (checks will be in the mail guys, I promise!) and then got these on the last day of the "assorted" section in the last Clink auction (not sure how these got put in there but I'll take it). Will need to see about listing some undercopies soon...
  19. Another club I'm fortunate to be able to join.
  20. Pretty sure this post explains why so many of these are difficult to find.
  21. Quite an amazing flurry of discoveries over the past few weeks.
  22. Very pretty! I was an underbidder on that one, but let it go as I’ve already spent a LOT in this auction. Glad you got it!
