  1. The term "acid-free" is not used in relation to plastics. The terms "inert" and "stable" are used to describe plastics that can be safely used in preservation. Understanding plastics for preservation
  2. If anyone knows of a good company to have this done, feel free to reach out with a reference via PM. Thanks!

  5. I'd say a press for "reasons of security" isn't a bad idea if you're desperate and copies aren't readily available.... but doing it strictly for the purpose of a 9.9 or a 10.0? May as well set your money on fire.
  6. The crazy thing about 10s is that you could literally stand next to the press and pull a thousand books directly from the rollers...and 999 of them would probably fail to meet the standard.
  7. It's not rocket science. 10 = perfect 9.9 = 1 tiny manufacturing defect allowed; no handling defects; otherwise perfect Just because you can't see a given flaw does not mean it's not there.
  8. Premium for newsstand? hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  9. Looks like the debt collector coming for me after I max out my credit cards buying comics.
  10. I think we are just seeing the beginning...the road that led to his snap. Obviously, there is a lot of room for him to develop into something more...self-assured.
  11. 1. If you are expecting another "comic" movie, you will be disappointed. The film is a study of insanity. You will definitely get crazy, but I'm not sure if you'll be pleased with his "purpose". 2. By far this is the best DC related film since the Dark Knight. The acting is spectacular.
  12. Let me add that it is wrong for a buyer to lie about his intentions in order to secure a better price, but I don't understand the mindset of sellers who ask about the buyer's intentions. Come up with one price for the book and be done with it. I don't expect a discount if the book ends up in my vault forever, but I certainly don't appreciate sellers who make implied demands in regards to what I do with the book once it is mine. If you feel burnt when you see a book relisted a few weeks later at a higher price, then maybe you should revisit your pricing scheme. I sold a book on the boards for $800 and the buyer flipped it three weeks later for a $400 profit. In all fairness, he asked me if I wanted to buy it back before he sold it.... no one's fault but my own. I should have been far more aggressive with my pricing. People whining about flips is annoying. It's part of the game. Price accordingly.
  13. What happens with a book is nobody's business but the owners.
  14. I thought you hated decapitation covers Rick? Maybe that's why you sold it?
  15. I cursed out the IRS one time...after almost 2 years of attempting to find a resolution. I'd just had it with the red tape and waiting on the phone for HOURS. I blew a gasket. Completely lost it. F-bombs everywhere. I'm still waiting for the audit. *laughing* *not laughing*
  16. I'm done with eBay. By the time you tack on extra to cover all the fees, you've priced the book out of sensible range. Also, they have no love for the seller at all.
