  1. BIg Bad Toy Store has Fett for $14.99 if you don't mind paying two bucks extra.
  2. MTU #141 & SS-M #90 came out the same month as ASM #252. Although, ASM #252 came out on the first week of Feb.1984, SS-M #90 came out on the third week and MTU #141 came out on the last week of Feb.1984. The only reason that MTU #141 gets more love and is usually worth more than SS-M #90 is because Spidey is actually wearing the black costume on the cover, unlike SS-M #90. Also, it doesn't hurt that CGC wrote on it's label for MTU #141 "Ties with AMS #252 for, for 1st appearance of the black costume" Unlike SS-M #90 where it wrote "1st black costume in title".
  3. How much are you paying for raw 9.8's & graded 9.8's? Also, how many do you need?
  4. I totally agree about big money eventually bring out 9.8's. But, what if there's not really many 9.8's out there to begin with? I think it's fair to say that 9.4's to 9.6's will be the new 9.8's when it comes to newsies.
  5. Anything with printed in China is a 2nd print. It's usually in the back of the omnibus.
  6. I once had a ebayer who won a mid grade Spidey #361 newsie that he claimed that he couldn't pay for it because some emergency popped up. Since I already had the book all packed up, I just decided to ship it to him for free. It fair to say that he was a happy camper and left positive FB.
  7. I am sure that eventually they will grade Yu-Gi-Oh cards.
  8. He actually called me today after a couple of years of not hearing from him. I told him about this thread, and he got a kick out of it. He still lives in the Bay area and is still buying books. He actually recently made a couple of purchases from the Blazing One. He did ask about Burntboy, and I told him that he hasn't posted in forever. Hopefully he's doing well.
