    It's possible the seller cleans out houses or storage lockers and lists his/her findings on eBay. Granted, many of these sellers are unfamiliar with comic books, so the grading is almost always wrong, but you can find some real treasures. When buying from sellers like this, you need to use your own judgement on the grade, and it doesn't hurt to contact the seller regarding the packaging of the item.

    Taxes on Ebay

    I don't believe eBay will automatically collect it and disseminate the taxes. From what I read in the posted link and experienced when testing it out a few years ago, you need to set up a tax table. This will automatically charge the buyer the appropriate sales tax for their state, but it is then up to the seller to report and pay taxes. I read through most of the regulations in the states above and there does appear to be an exemption if you gross less than 10K in sales in the state. I'm not a tax professional, so my understanding may be a little off, but I wanted to provide some additional info.

    No. That book is not even in NM condition. The whole top of the front looks wavy and/or rough. The bottom corner of the spine looks blunted from what I’m seeing on my phone. Who knows what surprises the back will hold. Not to mention how poorly the seller is going to pack the book. Judging by how poorly they presented a book for sale, I am not optimistic it will be packed well enough to preserve its current condition.
