    FACT if I stop posting, trillions and trillions of transistors would be out of work.

  1. Saw this thread and thought Conan #1 and Nic Cage would at least be in the first five posts.
  2. Yep, he's definitely a good dude. One of the better dealers out there by far! YMMV
  3. I don't know ANYTHING about this obscure book. It may be extremely rare too, I DON'T KNOW. Well I didn't know anything about this book either, except it fits the same "ordering screen" criteria as ASM 667 Dell'Otto (i.e 1 case pack with single comic dimensions). So I looked it up. Looks like MCS has at least 2 copies available, for $3.20 and $2.40. https://www.mycomicshop.com/search?q=kirby+genesis+3&pubid=&PubRng= And there are 2 more for sale currently on eBay. Again, no one is saying 667 DO isn't rare; we are saying -- just like Comichron -- one cannot determine number of copies based on this data alone. Again, if you have further proof -- hard, physical proof -- supply it. Or tell someone else how to get it; if your "friend" can dig up this info, why can't others? Otherwise this is just a multi-year troll exercise.
  4. Are the screenshots valiantman is posting your evidence of the one case pack, or do you have something different? I believe these are the conclusions of the last few dozen pages of this thread: 1. One cannot determine the number of ratio variants printed of any book. 2. ASM #667 Dell'Otto is a rare book. 3. One cannot say how rare ASM #667 is (see #1), unless new, hard evidence comes to light.
  5. No, what I'm asking you is "why" do you think Diamond would send out "singles" of the 667 Dell'otto, and not the 648 Campbell, both of which were 1:100's, from the same time frame, with what one would expect to be comparable order numbers (under normal circumstances, which this is clearly not, but let's say so for the sake of argument)? -J. Are you suggesting someone knew ahead of time only 1 "case pack" would be created of the 667? Or someone went in after the fact, and updated that page to say how many were actually sent out after all orders were placed? I may be getting my variants confused, but wasn't the 667 Dell'Otto added to the site late in the game?
  6. I'm not a diamond account holder. But there are other people on here who are, other than this guy (or at least they claim to be). The individual who provided me the info saw the original ASM 667 thread, saw some of the things that were being said and decided to investigate for himself. My own investigations were limited to public record. He reached out to some contacts at diamond and got the info. Since this info is not supposed to be public (as we are constantly being told by certain boardies through their multiple sock puppet accounts), I was asked not to publicize it, lest it be traced back to either him, or his source. I gave my word, and I will keep it until/unless he says I can post it myself or he posts it himself. -J. Not to volunteer anyone, but maybe @Chuck Gower can get this same info? @Jaydogrules - Are you able to provide him with the special password and handshakes to get to what you're alluding to?
  7. What if the Pedigree comic is not Universal?

  9. With the touch-ups, I wouldn't be so quick to call the top trimming a production miscut. Looks to me like when someone tries to cut a stack of paper on a large cutting board and the paper shifts halfway through the cut. Despite it's flaws, that is one great presenting copy. I’m not calling the cut one way or the other. I’m srating away from this one, though it does look very nice.
  10. It's a mock-up done for the banner, not an actual CGC 9.2 graded and slabbed Incredible Hulk #1. Yep. Soon after I typed that out I figured it was something made up for the display, and probably 2 merged items (Hulk #1 and Hulk #1 CGC 9.2 case) rather than a legit item.
  11. With an unrestored 2.0 going for $4k, I think it's got a long way to go... Depends on what "minor touch ups" means. And if someone is willing to take a chance it's a typical St. John's miscut and not a trim.
