    Books that money CAN'T buy...

    I think that’s missing the point. Say he has some emergency and needs or wants 5m. He can sell other mint golden age from his collection to raise the money without touching the very best books at all. For him to sell the very best, he’d have to have some kind of 8 figure emergency. I don’t know Jack about his collection. But I’ve heard he has MH action 1-23. Even if that was his whole collection (it’s obviously just the top of the iceberg), he could raise a lot of money just selling 11-23 and keeping 1-10. He’s just never going to need to sell his very best books because there are so many good books that could be sold first

    I like the cats eyes... that cat looks fully crazy - I like to think that’s what he was going for

    Yeah I hear that. Don’t get me wrong I am sure it’s very rare. But cash brings stuff out of the woodwork like nothing else does

    That might help but it also might not change things. I’m thinking of a boardie with a house full of stuff and a 10000 sq ft warehouse full of stuff. Many things he knows he owns he doesn’t know where they are. Even if he hears of this offer and is offered, what , a grand or two for a photocopy, he’s not looking for it, too much hassle. Offer him a mil though and he’s putting on the miners cap and digging

    Fair enough about the dump. Point is though, if someone is trying to buy something like this, cash can counteract the inertia and apathy that might otherwise be there

    Books that money CAN'T buy...

    Yes I can. Because if I’ve had them that long I like them too. Theres also an excellent chance I’ve never heard of the offer. But a million bucks gets it on the news, an owner hears about it, voila

    Nooooo.... big difference between saying you’re looking for something and publicly posting a massive amount of money. I ignore WTBs for stuff I have regularly . However if someone shows me they are dead $$erious it’s theirs. Most people posting WTBs aren’t really offering significantly more than FMV. Hence, ignored

    Tell him to publicly offer a million for a copy, and he will find six. It’s not the sexy answer, but anything that exists generally has an owner that can be persuaded

    I don’t think there’s any comic that can’t be found if you put a big enough offer out.

    I know you're kidding, but I'm surprised yellowing doesn't bother more people. I get that there's only one, but there's also always something else just as cool to spend your money on (such as an equally great piece that isn't toned). I've never had a toned board whitened but maybe it can be done without damaging the inks too much. If its safe to do maybe people ignore the yellowing; I don't know much about it and wouldn't want to try my luck.

    Yeah. And you know the scans are never WORSE than what they look like in real life...

    Agreed. its crazy how toned some of the boards from this era are. Who’s storing them in their toaster ovens?

    agreed although it won't go for nearly as much of course. Your guess, Scott?
