  1. Less than a week to go! We will have 20-30 new $2 boxes, a few new $5, $10 and $20 boxes, and lots of new priced stuff that we haven't had to a show. Here is a sample of some of the better priced stuff.... Sunday looks to be a great day in Columbus....come out for some good comic fun!
  2. Not very quick unfortunately....sometimes the window to sell "hot" stuff at a premium closes before I get to digging them out....case in point these Marvel Age 41's....before Stan passed they were going for good money....now not so much. I just uncovered these a few months ago going through some boxes so lost opportunity.....
  3. LOL....A man after my own heart!! Although I think I lost rookie status long ago after 1000+ long boxes, 200+ mag boxes, 1000's of posters, cards, toys, pulps, graphic novels, etc.....
  4. I think comics like that are Marvel Whitman variants.... There is an old thread around here somewhere that gives a detailed explanation on them....
  5. I don't think the gentleman had looked at his comics for years and years (the layer of crud on the bags was a giveaway) so I don't think he even remembered what he had. At the show he said he had late 80's and early 90's comics which a lot of it was but obviously there was quite a few that were not. When I evaluated the collection I wrote down separate prices for key books. Before I showed him what my offer was going to be I asked him what he wanted. Of course he said as much as he could get but he figured that by selling it all together he wouldn't get more than 10 cents each. At which time I told him it was good I had evaluated the comics first because my offer was way more than what he was expecting. We as informed comic people assume that everyone else should also know which comics are valuable and which ones are not.....but to the average person a comic is just a comic....
  6. Buckeye Comic Con coming to Columbus OH on Nov 24......Long running show with a nice amount of comics....if you are in the area definately worthwhile to make it a day comic shopping..... Link... http://m.harpercomics.com/ We'll have a couple tables and will be introducing comics from a new collection just purchased.....
  7. Here are a few group shot pics of some X-Men and Wolverine (and a few others) from the collection.....nice to get a decent amount of good books all together at one time.....
  8. Hadn't opened the boxes for years? Didn't care? Who knows? Most comics didn't have prices....No pics forthcoming of the boxes of that drek.... Most likely he knew that several comics had more value....he was just expecting that by selling everything at once to have to sell them at bulk prices I guess.....he was happy that didn't end up being the case....
  9. A few more pics from the collection.... X-men, Daredevil and Avengers were his 3 favorite titles so more of them than any other title...
  10. I actually drove 10 miles to him but sometimes people are just caught up in every day life for them to sell stuff piecemeal to get maximum profit....
  11. But of course for every collection like that one you have 20 like these.... On Sat drove I 2 hours west to look at a collection of "50's, 60's 70's & 80's" of around 800 comics....righttttt....it was literally so bad that I didn't want it at any price.....wouldn't have paid him $50 for all of it..... Makes the nice collections that much sweeter.....
  12. Thanks....for sure they are out there...need some luck and do some footwork....ironic that I drive 2 hours to find a collection 10 miles from me....
  13. Truthfully didn't even look at the sticker prices....just evaluated them on condition and gave him a price based on that....if I was going to really lowball him I would have gave him the 10 cent each he was expecting and been on my way.....not how I do biz though....
