  1. Yep, an infamous Fantazia classic! At least the ebay seller is not pimping the "file copy" element in the listing. This exact Spidey 28 copy popped up in a previous thread 7 years ago. See MasterChief's post in it with pictures showing the stamp/writing details on the following link: https://www.cgccomics.com/boards/topic/236332-file-copies/page/2/
  2. Did someone say "Flavor"? BTW, this guy turns 60 tomorrow (3/16)! (Gawd I feel old!)
  3. What a great idea! Perfect landing spot for this. Yes, Overstreet would be an excellent venue for this! (I feel the theme for Overstreet 50 in two years should be "The Collectors" and this would fit right into it!) Who is going to play Dave Jay in the inevitable movie? And who will play the narrator in it - sfcityduck? GREAT STUFF Duck!
  4. Not too much better, but showing more wall space behind
  5. This is one of those things that requires an explicit opt-out action on your part. It is their platform after all. You are correct Vodou. THANKS! Sign in and go to "Update My Profile" and then "Email & Text Preferences" and select here:
  6. Interesting. I always thought the "Make an Offer" was generated off of the following option in Heritage:
  7. I guess I'm not 100% sure, but I kept hearing the same paddle number called after each lot, and whoever paid that much for the last page had, I thought, a big incentive. Could well have been wrong and maybe 7 out of 8 went to one place Oops. Most likely it was page 5 of the Ditko Strange Tales 117 art that went to a different buyer than the rest of of the ST117 pages (INCREDIBLE prices BTW!) On the Heritage site, the page 5 art does not have a "Make Offer to Owner" on it, which is usually an option selected by the buyer (the other ST117 pages do have a "Make Offer" on them)
  8. Found this interesting from a link on the Cosmic Aeroplane on Wordpress (see following link) https://cosmicaeroplane.wordpress.com/2015/03/01/cosmic-aeroplane-comic-books-vol-i/ From Par (Parley) Holman: "Over the years I have read speculation from some Golden Age collectors as to the significance of the numbers and checkmarks. The consensus is some nonsense that the comics were part of an art service, which marked the books so their artists could re-draw the panels. This is what the checkmarks in the Cosmic Aeroplane Collection really signify: the original owner of the comics would check off panels he wanted to trace (crudely) in pencil on pieces of tracing paper. We took all of the tracing paper out of the comics before listing them for sale."
  9. Wondering if any of the GREAT books posted in this thread appeared on this rack back in the day? (Ken Sanders displaying comics at the Cosmic Aeroplane)
  10. You are basically on your own when it comes to insurance on a bank's safety deposit box. See the following link from the FDIC's web site about safety deposit boxes. Notice the following in item #2 - "A safe deposit box is not a deposit account. It is storage space provided by the bank, so the contents, including cash, checks or other valuables, are not insured by FDIC deposit insurance if damaged or stolen. Also, financial institutions generally do not insure the contents of safe deposit boxes. If you want protection for the valuables in your safe deposit box or home safe, talk to your homeowner's or renter's insurance agent about adding coverage under these policies" FDIC link on safety deposit boxes: https://www.fdic.gov/consumers/consumer/news/cnwin18/fivethings.html Also, another key thing to notice is where the bank's vault for the safety boxes is located. See the following article on how thieves broke into a bank's security box location in Queens, New York back in 2016. Nothing is full proof, but you like to cut down on the odds!

  11. I always use Google to search for things on the CGC boards. Find it easier to search there than the search engine here on the boards. Put "CGC safety box" in the Google search engine and eight separate CGC forum threads pop up immediately on the top. BTW, I have used bank safety deposit boxes for years with no issues

  13. Look's like St. Mark's Comics in NYC will be closing it's doors for good next month. Seems to be more related to the unrelenting Manhattan real estate market than anything else. A lot of long time similar businesses in NYC (i.e. record shops like Bleecker Bob's) have fallen similar victim to rent issues. With the advent of the internet, consumers had more choice (and better prices!) to go to. Still, I rather see these stores on the landscape than a Starbucks or Banana Republic replacing them!

  14. Ahhhh, ANOTHER mystery solved! Thank you! Did not know you were from "across the pond" Please carry on with the topic as I head over to the Bigfoot and JFK conspiracy boards!
