  1. 2nd Ant Man as a true costumed Super Hero, TTA 27 is more of a horror story that later morphed into a superhero story after they took a vote from fans. Hulk 180 will always be the 1st appearance of the Wolverine to me also, not 181. LOL
  2. Paypal or money order/checks are great, First at $875 takes the prize. Most recent GPA sale was $895 so not only am I cheaper with perfect White pages, but also offering FREE USA SHIPPING! Canada will have to pay a reasonable amount more to ship, if UK PM me. I have massive perfect feedback on major keys here on the boards, if you want the link, just ask.
  3. Why? What is the Wolvie buzz I am missing? That's a 50% premium over GPA!
  4. Need coverless or other entry level price range rags/poor copies. Will pay at or Above fair going market price, let me know what you got and how much $ you need. Much appreciated! P.S. If you see one for auction or sale somewhere, that would be awesome to let me know. Thanks!
  5. Flat $10 USPS shipping. Paypal, money order or check all good. No return on CGC graded books. 1st wins, or first take by PM also. Years of high dollar book kudos CHECK OUT MY KUDOS PAGE: Adventure Comics #247 1st Legion of Super Heroes CGC 1.5 due to some light water contact and color fading (it really needs a press!), the cover paper is intact and in great condition, paper looks like a solid VG+ structurally, not sure but press and just straight color touch resto might make this book look really nice with just a slight/moderate designation? Comicconnect had an auction about a month or so ago and a restored/trimmed 2.0 that looked way worse than this sold for over $1,100, so I think this book has been trending up a lot lately. $750 Marvel Preview #4 CGC 8.5 WHITE PAGES, 1ST STAR LORD! $320 Marvel Preview #7 CGC 5.5 WHITE PAGES, 1ST ROCKET RACCOON! $175 These prices are very fair for highly desired CGC graded keys with nearly perfect to perfect White pages, I can maybe work in a reasonable multi book discount etc, but please no low ball offers. If you are in the market for a Tales to Astonish #27 Intro & Origin Ant Man that has just slight resto in the beautiful VF grade range for about $3K, PM me and we can work something out.
  6. No returns on CGC books, paypal or check/money order great, Flat $8 USPS PRIORITY SHIPPING (Below Cost!) First wins, PM also OK if it beats out any other takers. I have years of perfect kudos on many high dollar books, just ask me if you need to see. X-Force #2 CGC NM/MT 9.8 White Pages, 2nd Ever Deadpool! $64 Was that a great/funny movie or what! Watchmen #1, CGC NM 9.2 White Pages $69 Watchmen #1 CGC VF 7.5 White Pages (looks like a 9.2 except for one minor spine ding) $48
  7. 1st WW is truly a grail and your price is getting close to target, if you had the 1st wrap, I bet it would be sold by now! I imagine most people probably want either a complete copy or would rather pay 4x more for a lower range complete restored copy with cover? Someone out there might have an incomplete copy and just need some interior pages and would jump all over this, but that market that you are appealing to most for a copy like this is obviously much smaller. GLWTS!
  8. Yes, cleaning gets purple label, or perhaps semi purple/blue conserved label if nothing else but support is done. Cover is not brittle, a cleaning will do wonders for it and help preserve it for much longer to boot! The turnaround times and costs at the big 2 (Matt and Susan), make that prohibitive, so that is why I was looking for another option here on the boards. Feel free to PM me if anyone has the talent or contacts to help out. Thanks!
  9. That is for dry cleaning dirt and other similar rub marks. Something you can do much better with a quality soft eraser. This is a whole different kind of cleaning that involves a chemical bath to make tanned whites look truly white again. That is something bread will never do! If wonder bread could truly make tan paper white again, they would have to call it MAGIC bread!
  10. I know there are several restoration pros on the boards. Looking for some recommendations, simple question guys!
  11. I would like to get this comic cover cleaned to brighten it up for obvious reasons, (that white background is no longer white!) Can someone refer me to a boardie that will clean 1/2 a cover for me (there is no back cover) for a reasonable price and a fairy good turnaround time? Thanks!
  12. Also a sweet NM- Action 521 1st Vixen Appearance and others! Check out my Low Priced auctions closing soon. Free shipping on any additional lots won after the first.
  13. Looking for around $500 range or below beater copies of either, but nice find!
  14. If anyone can track down a cheap low grade with the cover mostly intact, I can give you a finders fee.
  15. Actual GPA for ( 5.0 ) (2) $3,375 (1) $2,380 (2) $2,540 (1) $2,700 $2,700 Mar-2018 ( 7.0 ) - (1) $18,000 (1) $18,000 - $18,000 Jun-2017 ( 6.5 ) (1) $4,749 - - - $4,749 Feb-2016 ( 6.0 ) (1) $6,000 (1) $6,100 (1) $6,100 - $6,100 Jul-2017 Because of scarcity in higher grades, there can be a big gap in 1/2 to 1 grade differences, so its best not to use the higher grades for you comparisons while ignoring actual same grade sales, not a very fair comparison.
  16. Sounds like it won't affect the grade, but tape will be noted on the label and we are talking a 1 millimeter micro piece of tape, so perhaps its best to try and remove it to make the label more neat and clean/book more desirable, so it has no label note about tape. Worth the effort/risk?
  17. I have what looks like on the surface to be a silver age key 7.0 range book I am getting ready to submit for grading. Problem is on the front cover is a 3/4 inch tear near the corner edge and it has a teeny tiny micro piece of tape on interior to prevent the tear from going further. Question, should I try to remove the tape before getting it graded, or since it is so small and is there for a reason, just leave it and hope for the best on the grading? Really interested in seeing how CGC will grade this given that one minor defect given how nice the rest of the book looks. Thanks!
  18. Great communication and buying transaction on a $1K+ early Golden Age Key! Thanks! A++
