    Heritage BP increasing

    I think people will bid what they would have already bid. Likely they figure it will create a little more revenue for them that goes towards improving their bottom line.

    Any body ever go to "The Dump"? Find anything?

    Haha, I remember a former boss of mine telling a story about when she was younger and recently married. Her newlywed husband was a member of the RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police) and he had been stationed to a small rural community. On his days off he would take her to the local dump and she would shoot the rats crawling around in the garbage piles so she could practice her shooting skills!
  7. They might grad them, the marquis posters are usually huge, I thought no these are 27 by 41 or something like that
  8. I don’t think so, probably just sell them as they are 😀
  9. I don’t often get to hit the garage sale circuit but got a stellar find this morning. 5 original vintage move posters dating the earliest from 1947. The Marilyn Monroe film poster is worth some substantial $$$. Grand total paid=$50 Canadian. The Heavy Metal poster I picked from someone’s garbage when they cleaned the house to move the week before=$0 for that one 😀

    Metropolis is Suing Voldemort

    Interesting, I googled it up, looks like the McDonalds Monopoly games are also printed up to reflect the local geography as well, just like the board games.

    I'm getting priced out of collecting

    Pricing on books, especially GA non-keys is a tricky thing. So much is dependent on it being in the right sale (assuming auction sale) and having at least a couple of buyers chasing after it. Sometimes it falls under the radar, or perhaps people are just focused on other books in the sale and it sells for much less. If you want to chase after popular books, whether they be keys or cool covers (which seems to be on fire at the moment and only getting hotter for GA books) then you are going to have to pay, in some cases a lot for even a beat up copy. Price trends don't last forever and there are corrections and shifts up and down in all collectable markets, and sometimes even market collapses. I think its naïve to think that high demand Key books are going to ever be cheap again. There may be corrections, but finding that key book for a song within any major buying venue is a thing of the past. Accept it or move along to collecting another form of comics that you can enjoy. I love abstract art and paintings and I think Picasso is amazing in the work he has done. I don't grumble about not being able to afford one (which I cant). I enjoy other artists work who I can acquire and hang on my wall to enjoy.
  13. Yeah, but would it rival a beautiful Lancashire kitchen?
