  1. He could do it 1st class for $4 and change
  2. I had the same problem a while back, now I only buy the 7.25" Silvers. Problem solved.
  3. I have rebooted 3 times: Started collecting in '72, sold almost all of it as a HS senior in '80 Worked nights in a comic shop in '87-88 and put together a very modest collection, then life happened. Revisited it all in 2007 and started buying/collecting selling. Sold almost all my "big books" in '15-'16, and now focused on a filling a short box with a few things for my collection . Still have a few thousand books I take to shows to sell/trade. Rebooting is fun, and makes the hobby fun and occasionally lucrative.
  4. I got the same thing in the 80's when I was buying 12 cent Marvels for a buck or two each.
  5. I was thinking the same thing. I have bought maybe 1000 GA/SA books in the last 10 years, and have graded probably about 75 of them.
  6. In general, buy the best copy you can afford. Ideally one that is graded.
  7. Some WWII comics were put together this way as a way to save paper.
  8. I am of the opinion that there is a strong chance this is trimmed. This is mostly due to the fact that the corners opposite the spine are pretty sharp, but the spine wear indicates a more worn book.
  9. Thanks for sharing. It did make me a bit nauseous though.
  10. 2 ever-changing shorties is perfect for me. The other 7 longs and 15 shorties are all inventory.
  11. First class box mailer for raw under 1# is about $4, priority box under 2# for slab is about $10. I would keep it in the slab.
