  1. Even though I have been selling off and on for twenty years, my collecting has continued apace. I have sold many pricier pieces to help out my heirs, but I will likely die with a few pieces that will have instructions and provenance, estimates, etc. to help the family. And, a heck of a yard sale, I imagine. My mother tried to sell off stuff for years before she died and still managed to retain enough for a long weekend of selling at yard sale prices. We also have a good local auction house who uses Live Auctioneers for halfway decent material, though comic art is a little too speci
  2. I just got the color key film separations for TTA #7 (1980) Sub-Mariner showing the new version of the cityscape in the background. Original book shown on the right. Cool! David After the pic loads, click a couple times to zoom in. Sorry about the glare.
  3. Bronty said..."I suppose the counterpoint is that some of this is me waving my cane in the air as it’s all affordable from wages if you buy lower condition and or less desirable material. But the extremes are sooo extreme now that it’s hard to focus on much else." And their comment is right on the mark. I maintain a "focus" on the extremes to stay current on trends for the handful of high-end pieces I have chosen to keep. The interesting part of "lower condition or less desirable" within the realm of original comic art is that condition is not such a factor, so the fun of collect

  5. PM sent, don't want to spoil the guessing game for other collectors! David
  6. I bought a page from a dealer's site which had been posted ten years ago. I feared the worst in terms of lost, delayed, already sold or removed from inventory, price changed, etc. Result.......shipped the next day! YAY! Thanks to Anthony. To celebrate, and in anticipation, I created an oversized reference print. Happy New Year, David S. Albright

  10. Same as the differences between virtual galleries and brick and mortar galleries, I guess. I was just referencing the use of the word museum in the context of Felix original remark and the explosion of the internet. Did you know you can create your own gallery right here on the CGC boards? David
  11. Virtual museums exist on the internet, and may even be a more common use of the term, as time goes by, than brick and mortar usage. The Sleepwalker cover art I sold went to such a museum dedicated to the Sleepwalker character, and that collection is curated on Instagram. Best, David
  12. LINK TO DECICCO PEPOY MAN AGAINST TIME ART AUCTION ON EBAY Thanks for checking this out! I just listed a cool page with a $150 start that includes the minty book for MAN AGAINST TIME #1. Nice page with some condition issues, just go to eBay for details! Two panels were added at the top as corrections or revisions, and some word balloons are missing. Questions and comments always welcome in the thread or send me a personal message or message Best, David S. Albright
  13. Really got me wondering about the attempt to get books slabbed to achieve the maximum auction results. Fees and shipping keep most single books in a grey zone for slabbing. Thanks for showing your efforts! David
