  1. I use blue tape ( painters tape) - for interior packaging when I ship. It has a very low release point - so much lower chance of an accidental tape pull if someone is rushing to unbox the package. From the picture - it looks like they are protecting the edges of the bag with this - so making the window somewhat stronger to prevent pulling. I would not recommend putting right on the book. I did test the tape on some modern books - did not appear to do any damage, but the adhesive on my "blue" ( 3m painters tape) - does change a little over time. Plus - with a modern you are really hoping for that 9.8 so I would not really want anything to touch the book.......
  2. True on two fronts - Some collectors consider pressing restoration - and do not want pressed books regardless if it is "detectable" or not. Some - look for a grade bump in any book - and books that have never been pressed many times can get a bigger bump ( some pressed books - can still get a bump)...
  3. Here's hoping you have at least TWO hunters looking for it............
  4. good luck! - any idea how the Canada edition performs vs standard??? I am actually thinking of putting up my ASM 3 in that auction.... - financing more buys!!!!!!
  5. Though --- they can see the results of bad pressing like flaring, pebbling, etc ( they have articles about a lot of these items). They will hammer grades for these issues, but still not mark as pressed. For the OP --- CGC has in house pressing - so they could label those as "pressed" --- but this would not be a good business decision as they would mark only their own books. Since most would have a preference for purchasing non-pressed books, this would potentially have a negative impact on the slabs desirability and also lead more people to go outside for pressing so they do not get that mark.
  6. these guys.........
  7. I think you can do this individually --- I use turbo lister and it has an option to turn on global for a single listing. I do not know if I trust that entirely (tutbo lister) - but it is also available as an edit option on ebay. I would try loading one without international, then edit and add the global option. Then - CHECK your other listings, --- ebay has a habit of trying to get everyone on global shipping when they make updates....
  8. one last bundle in the box..... batman shadowbox..... to cool
  9. and the really stupid part of the excuse......... people who do not want to ship overseas - can use the ebay global program. It is NOT the best for a buyer (with all of the discussed overbilling for fees) -- but as as seller it is really simple and low risk. You ship to the US location - and done.
  10. Pics !!!!!!!
  11. pics from the FIRST 2 bundles......
  12. so ---- my reveal ---- I was lucky enough that Azkaban's mini mystery box was available --- right off the bat - I was thrown a fun curve..... Dwayne asked me what I collect..... I know that he is beyond generous with this stuff, but my go to answer would usually be golden age hero comics ( those are my keepers from collections I buy -- or mu board purchases)..... I wanted to choose something I would read ---- so another good catch all is batman related..... so - "smaller than the raffle one" ------ looks like this and a little tease of the inside....
  13. - benefited from one of those random HA occurrences... I was on vacation a fer years ago, and threw in some low-ball bids on three different large groups of GL..... Monday morning - somehow picked them all up ( and at lower than my max bids too). I still have lots of overlap/duplicates from like 30-130....
  14. ---- me assuming they had a store....... I believe this issue here was after the seller shipped---- but the store vacation setting is nice to have.....
