  1. Any idea how to price these?

    Not my friend - (shadrock is OP ) - just going by the description of store displays.
  2. Any idea how to price these?

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/Fisher-Price-Imaginext-DC-Super-Friends-Batbot-Xtreme-DISPLAY-READ-DESC/323051968300?hash=item4b3765d72c:g:E18AAOSwp7FadpNP Hard to really say what the "display version" would add to the value - this guy has a lot of 6 of the batbots ( one sold) - and the description would indicate that the functionality of the display versions is limited.... You can get NIB ones for under $100. Like any collectible - cost varies on the desirability and scarcity... Three batbot displays in this auction alone - and a "Wal Mart" display... I would think that the market of people who purchase these is very limited - and the fact that they are for wal mart makes them pretty common...
  3. The Most Bid Retractions I've Ever Seen.......

    Hahaha, karma gonna do what karma does! Wonder what happened this time. Don't think anything extra happened -- but he was banned form ebay and set up another account. Ebay probably did him a favor - if his CGC transactions were real, he was losing $50 or more per transaction......He was flipping most for less than he paid, many times before any fees applied ( per GPA prices) ....

  6. No dad - we have already has this talk - as soon as you depart, I back the truck up and remove the burden from the rest of the family........
  7. If they don't sell for $2 - they go in the dollar bin! Best bet really is to learn what covers to look for for better modern books - do a sort - pull everything you think is of value
  8. I think everyone is missing the most important part of this thread..... strangest Friday ever---- a simple straightforward exchange of thoughts and a boardie changes his opinion.....
  9. CGC will open an office in London in April

    Looks like only a drop off point - then ship back... A step forward for sure ( as the footprint there could lead to on site activities), but short term, just easier than trying to find them at a local con or shipping overseas yourself. Likely not any change for international lead times ...
  10. The Most Bid Retractions I've Ever Seen.......

    I had a look at the completed Hulk 181, Hulk 5, and All-Star 58 as well as the currently running X-Men 94. If it is Kaftor, it doesn't appear he's gotten back into bid shilling on eBay (not yet anyway, who knows --- it is definitely him His slab sales are strange -- cant really say if anything is going on, but he is losing money on every sale. Most are sold underwater ( so lose $$ and the ebay/paypal cut) - and most of the ones where he gets a slight bump over what he paid- are underwater with the vig..... ( info readily available on GPA). If you look at his feedback - very strange as a buyer- says he has 60 bid retractions in the last year.
  11. The Most Bid Retractions I've Ever Seen.......

    I did not see anything fishy with the visible auctions - but I am no expert by far. Just wanted the radar out again. Never saw the guy post out a mea culpa of any sort - so unknown if he is trying it the right way this time, or trying to fly under the radar a lot more......
  12. The Most Bid Retractions I've Ever Seen.......

    the original thread is gone ( so harder to check aliases) ... but it looks like "good news" is back - he was posting on the SD comics facebook bragging bout ebay sales - also posted pics of IH 181 and ASM 129 - both CGC 3.5 living_room_con had ebay sales of the same books after the post ( and from San Diego) ..... not a ton of bidding history ( most of the auctions are private bidders) ...... but worth a look from the "CGC PI Squad" ......
  13. You should look up green labels - this is a qualified grade - where the book looks a lot better than grade- and they list the reason. This book looks like a 7.5 --- but has a detached cover........
  14. http://hbsbusiness.com/index.php/site/articles/avoiding_the_hobby_tax_trap/ While a little old - this is a decent read on the subject for those who do this on the side. Part of the classification s well - is that you should be running your side project as a business. Things like a separate phone line, insurance, business bank accounts, and the like - are all items that can help your case if the IRS comes knocking....
