  1. I've only seen a few brief YouTube clips. I saw the new Klingons and decided I couldn't deal.
  2. I'm not at all familiar with the Discovery series. I really have no interest. It just doesn't seem like Star Trek. I'll have to look into the spore drive!
  3. GAH! I forgot to post the rules. Sorry! TERMS OF SALE: * * * PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE TERMS OF SALE BEFORE PLACING A BID. I DO NOT MAKE EXCEPTIONS TO THE TERMS LISTED BELOW * * * I will not conduct business with members on the probation list, members listed in the hall of shame, or the handful of members on my ignore list. I do not participate in third-party deals. When you enter into a contract with me, you acknowledge that you are directly responsible for the deal. First in the sales thread wins. Private sales can be arranged and negotiations are entertained
  4. Yes. You need to send it to the CGC regardless of your decision to sell or keep. You need to know exactly what you have, and so do potential buyers. Yes. You need insurance if you keep it. Check with your home insurer and ask about a rider to cover the market value of the book at any given time. Then, compare that number with a policy from Shop around and carefully read the policy. You should also consider safe and secure ways of physically storing the book. Dark, cool, crisp air. Don't tell anyone where the book is. Don't store it out in the light. Don't stor
  5. Starship: Galaxy class retrofitted with upgraded weaponry. The Sovereign and Intrepid classes are incredible, but I didn't pick them because of the bio-neural computers. They are a lot faster but susceptible to biological attack. Besides, I am just drawn to the Galaxy class. I think it's the sexiest Enterprise by far. Captain: Picard (intelligence, discipline, moral compass, charisma) First Officer: Spock (intelligence, logic, physical strength, limited emphatic powers - imagine what a team he'd make with Picard!) Chief Engineer: (LaForge - genius. Dedicated. Unique vision, can even sp
  6. Rules: Look at the template below. Pick a starship, then pick one character for each role. Any starship or character from the cannon is acceptable. I am defining "cannon" as ships or characters from any of the TV series or motion pictures. Feel free to explain your choices if you feel the need. Explanation: I've included all of the major staff positions. In order to give everyone an opportunity to really load their rosters, I've also included a position for transporter chief and mess hall/bartender. I did not include counselor or yeoman because these roles were specific to a certain seri
  7. Four of the very coolest comics of all time IMHO. Drool worthy in any grade. I look forward to upgrading when the wife goes back to work.
  8. SOLD Please accept my apologies for the photographs. My scanner is out of commission at the moment. The colors are pretty good on this copy!
  9. FOR SALE - Blue Circle 6 - CGC Universal Grade of 6.5 (Fine +) with Off-white to white pages. FROM THE JON BERK COLLECTION Gerber rarity index - 8 (RARE - estimated 11-20 copies). Special notation: may not exist There are five graded copies on the census, including Berk's book. Interesting book. I have copied and pasted the following information directly from "Contents do not match cover. The sixth issue of this run consisted of a new cover used to recover different remaindered comics dating from the late 1940's to early 1950's and several variations
  10. I live out in the middle of BFE, but we recently got fiber gig-speed Internet through a grant. I can hit over 1,000 MBPS when I'm hooked directly into the router. Fortunately for some, the bottleneck happens to be in my wallet, not my connection.
  11. That's actually leagues above "spinner rack condition" which makes it even more unbelievable. I'd be hard pressed to find a modern era 9.8 copy of anything off the shelves at my LCS, let alone a book that's older than my dad, who is pushing 70.
  12. I will allow Takebot to take. I'm holding out for a 9.9 copy, but it's a beauty nonetheless.
  13. Of all the amazing sales threads I've seen here over the past 10 years or so, this is one of the most amazing in every way. INCREDIBLE!
  14. Yes. It is extremely unrealistic to submit 30 comics and expect a 10....or even a 9.9 As others have already pointed out, they are statistically rare. And don't let people tell you there is no difference in a 9.8 or a 9.9 or a 10. There is. Now. Are they worth the price premiums? That's for everyone to decide on their own. I used to lay down the heavy premiums for 9.9s (I owned around 16 at one time) but it was a foolish mistake, in retrospect. EDIT: Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that I have subbed hundreds of books. I've never gotten a 9.9 or a 10.0. I even purc
  15. I'm setting a timer for 60 minutes. Then the thread will close for good. During this time, take an extra 5% off the prices listed at the bottom of page one! Nuts!
