  1. Lasted 7 mins. Appears the sellers lists an auction with a Best Offer option. That is an awfully small amount of time to notice, send an offer, have offer accepted, and have no one put in a starting bid. I've put in Best Offers on books without an auction and no one get back to me in 24 hours. My favorite are the auctions that start at $0.99 with a Best Offer option; the seller usually never responds to the offer before someone else bids $1. What's the point?

  2. Rumored to be in the GOTG 3 movie. Not sure how high it can go since it already had a hefty price tag for a copper book and there is a ton in high grade. I think the Canadian price variant is the way to go with this one. Potential dumb Q: Are all of the Canadian price variants newsstands?
  3. This book has been up and down multiple times; any particular reason this time?
  4. Don't forget Cap #217. I really hope I held onto some of the copies I hoarded. I buy up a stuff very pre-hype pricing, wait for the price surge, never see it, sell, then it explodes. Ive sold both in raw very well for the last couple of years. Currently 217 sells for me, but I can see Hulk 234 catching up. I went back and looked; out of probably a dozen of each (Hulk and Cap) I found 2 Caps. There are a couple more boxes to go, but I think I included the Hulks in a couple short boxes for $1 each.
  5. Based on my own experience, this PayPal refund policy will wreak havoc on raw GA sales.
  6. The ONLY value to the seller for this is to see what the actual market interest price is for that item and how close it comes to their reserve price. Then they can go ahead and decide if it's worth listing for a price that might sell. Generally a waste of time but if it's a book that might be in high demand they don't risk leaving money on the table. If it's a book that has little to no interest, they then know not to try selling it on ebay. One reason I might do this is if I had a rare comic that doesn't have much recent sales data on ebay or GPA I could put it up for auction with a ridiculous reserve price and see where the interest is and if it gets to where I'd be comfortable dropping the reserve price to near the current bid price I could do that or relist with it at that price. If it shoots past my ridiculous reserve then I know I've not left any money on the table. If I get nothing but crickets, then I have my answer. The only downside is many will ignore auctions with reserve prices so it won't be a complete market view. Seems you've talked yourself out of the potential value in a Reserve auction. Can't determine a real market interest/price if one is immediately turning off part of that base.
