  1. Batavia, NY auction

    Ah, Batavia. They have a NY Penn league minor league team, which was affiliated with the Phillies back in the early-mid 90's. My parents had season tickets to the Oneonta Yankees, but we'd hit up some away games, too. Good times. Have fun, BUTM!
  2. I was pulling for Alf, but Groo would have been fine with me, too.
  3. I got Robbed

    Come's Friday. What really happened? This is the sort of thing I've been missing.
  4. When comic collecting becomes just checking a box

    @Reno McCoy I'm going through that phase right now. Well, I guess I have been for a year and a half, which is partially to blame for the lack of my presence on these boards. I've gone through a bunch of huge life events (marriage, kid, moving to a new state), so my time reading, searching and finding awesome comic treasures has shrunk considerably. I haven't even really sold that much either. My comics are just sitting there. That collecting and deal-finding hole has been filled temporarily with the stupid Star Wars Card Trader digital card trading app. It's actually quite addicting and was a perfect time killer when staying up with a crying infant. Recently, I've really started to miss discussing new books here and the weekly Friday meltdown, so I'm sure the passion will come back.
  5. I don't know. After looking at his outfit, you can see a big hat tip to the classic get up.
  6. Moderns that are heating up on ebay!

    Looks like I Kill Giants may take off again

    The recent news about Morbius has caused the 2nd Printing of ASM #101 to move a bit quicker than it had been.

    Wow. I didn't realize SMA #10 was selling like that. I can see why. I've been away for a little while, but is this a new development?
  9. Beckett

    Hmm.. Haven't been following Voldy, or much of anything for that matter, lately. Did they need this to keep the company going? Based on the phone call comments, sounds like the ship wasn't being run as tight as it may have been early on. It will be interesting to see how this plays out. Also, , everyone.
  10. Brubaker's Best Work?

    I need to start reading Kill or be Killed. I have many of the issues piled up, just haven't had time for comics in a little while. Velvet is/was amazing when I was reading it.
  11. Image Blind Box blank covers - perhaps not so rare?

    They usually sell. Just not as quickly as you'd like.
  12. Image Blind Box blank covers - perhaps not so rare?

    I'm sure a lot of the people purchasing these were doing so for spec purposes. Those who lucked out and got the blank covers threw the hot potato on eBay. Aside from the ones strictly for PCs, nobody wants to get stuck holding these, which is why many have hit eBay and will continue to do so.
  13. Books you just cant find in the Wild

    IIRC, there was a discussion about this book in the Copper section a couple years ago. I've searched for it, but the new boards drink my milkshake every time I try.

    Looks more like a floppy disk
