  1. It was actually the one talking about the collection.
  2. Just saw the Promise collection thread got locked.
  3. Is that Vlad’s Comics and Cards on Van Buren?
  4. That is a fantasy piece for a 7 year old. Nothing cooler than a secret compartment.
  5. No one in their right mind would kick that copy out of bed.
  6. I had to scroll down and use the filters on the left to pick Golden Age. That seemed to work for me. Ebay, constantly searching for ways to make their site suck more.
  7. I am really looking forward to the 50s Batman's. Hopefully there will be a few in the 7.5 to 8.5 range that are "affordable":
  8. I don't disagree with disappointment, I certainly am but unfortunately it is what it is and their customer based has voted with their wallets. New competitors are hard pressed to gain any real traction it seems
  9. CGC has had a well known history of inconsistent grading basically since day 1. Shouldn't comes as a surprise to anyone but for anyone that isn't aware of CGC's history on grading 1. Grading is inconsistent. They go through periods of being strict and being lax. Watch the boards to find out what their current trend is. 2. CGC misses restoration 3. CGC sees restoration where there is none 4. Taking a book apart is not restoration 5. Pressing is not restoration 6. Using non-archival tape to reattach a cover is not restoration and can boost the grade 7.
  10. reminds me of that South Park episode where they are junior detectives and solve the case of the missing pie.
  11. I don't know why folks don't do what they have been doing for over a decade and constantly touting on the boards "buy the book, not the label". If you think the book looks overgrazed, take a pass. If you think it looks overgraded but is going for a decent price bid on it. If you think the grade is spot on, go hard after it. Remember, we are the folks that would literally buy from Hitler or Satan if they had something we "needed".
  12. Graders notes: severe bindery chip, lower left
