  1. Feedback thread - newshane

    Shane snagged one of my beloved Planets from me. Was super friendly and made payment within minutes of my invoice. Can't ask for more than that! Thanks buddy!
  2. Ok folks, that's a wrap. What a ride! I hope it was as entertaining for you as it was for me. I must say, selling them was (almost) as fun as buying them, but alas, I will have to ship them out soon and that will hurt a bit. (cue empathy) This community is great and I've always come here first. In fact, I've bought more than half of my various collections here over the years. You just can't beat buying from trusted friends. While I have a few more books to sell over the next few months (don't get excited, they aren't too remarkable), I'm nominally no longer a comic collector. It's hard to say that as I've been one, off and on, for decades. The decision to sell now wasn't just to help out with a house, but more a personal decision to focus on other things for the second half. I had more fun than I should admit tracking down these books, and then putting together one-by-one to suit my tastes. It's been gratifying beyond-words that all of you share the admiration I have for these books. I'm happy they are all going to friends, new and old. Invoices will go out tomorrow morning, and shipping will begin on Wednesday and Thursday. Please check your invoices to make sure that I've got you down for the right books. I've done well to keep things organized, but more eyes are always a help. Anyway, as I said before, thank you all for the well-wishes, concern, advice, and of course, purchases. I just told my wife that we'll be able to afford a downpayment on a house in the spring and she started crying. Couldn't have done that without everyone's support these past few days. Thank you for making this sale successful, but more than that, memorable. What a great way to go out!

  5. #4 - Former Restored (Moderate) CGC 8.0 - $1050 NOW $750 - SOLD TO GOLDENCASE Such a great cover, you almost never see it. Formerly from a bound volume, fully restored by the renowned Susan Cicconi at Restoration Lab. Fantastic copy, you'll never see another one this nice for so cheap. The colors on this cover must be seen to be believed. Deeeep blues, hard to find on this issue. Absolutely newstand fresh. It's clear that this book was protected since the month it was printed. Comes with label. SCARCE BOOK. Take a minute and try to imagine what the price is for its unrestored counterpart....Better yet - look it up. (it's probably the Church copy...)
  6. #3 - Former Restored (Moderate) CGC 7.0 - $1200 NOW - $850 SOLD TO MYSTERRMYSTERY - An Eisner classic AND A HARD book to find. Rest assured, this one is a nice as all the others, which are consistently graded at 8.0-9.0. Must a have been an off-day when this one came through. As before, this is formerly from a bound volume, fully restored by the renowned Susan Cicconi at Restoration Lab. Fantastic copy, you'll never see another one this nice for so cheap. The colors on this cover must be seen to be believed. Acid yellows and inky blacks on this cover, truly hard to find on this issue. Absolutely newstand fresh. It's clear that this book was protected since the month it was printed. Comes with label. SCARCE BOOK. Take a minute and try to imagine what the price is for its unrestored counterpart....Better yet - look it up.
  7. #29 - VF - $1150 - NOW $950 - SOLD TO DAYZEN - (A no-brainer at this price) This book is one of the crowning jewels of my collection. Just about perfect in every way, save the staple pull/tear visible on front cover. Color saturation is the best I've seen for this issue. She's not cheap, but you won't see another like her.
  8. #54 - VG/FN - $150 - NOW $115 - SOLD TO N2WDW - Very nice book, only issue is one piece of masking tape exterior, sealing a tear. Otherwise a solid & attractive copy of this GGA issue! White/Off-White Pages.
  9. Ok, let's try this again... #73 - VG - $85 - NOW $60 SOLD TO BIGHALEY - Jan 21, 1954 Date Stamp. Last Issue, Whitman Cover. Some tears back page, sealed with archival tape very neatly. Both staples reinforced. Solid reader, glossy cover with nice color.

  11. The following discounts represent final prices. I'm happy to do bundle deals though. As always, first wins the book. Stay tuned.....
  12. Hi Friends, First, I wanted to thank EVERYONE who has made this sale a resounding success for me. I couldn't have hoped for a better outcome, and you all have contributed in a big way to the next chapter of my life. I would like to make a clean sweep and will be offering the remaining 7 (seven !!!) books at significant discounts over the next hour or two. The books left are by no-means "Leftovers". Issues like #29 & #36 are pretty special, and #3 & #4 are, well, hardly ever available at any grade....
  13. Recap on 2nd post and last-ish post. -J
  14. BOOOM!! That's how you do it my friend. Congrats, you are now part of a very small club.
