  1. Are the Boomers cashing out?

    +1 on hot artists being important Also, origin stories were considered much more important back then. The same goes for any 'change' ... like Captain Marvel's mega-bands. And X-overs. Things were different last century. signed a boomer <---- been thinking about selling it off to help with my son's education
  2. eBay The eBay Official eBay Thread eBay

    I'm pretty sure skypinkblu is right. As long as the tracking says 'delivered', Ebay will side with you.
  3. Marvel First Printing L Miller Variants

    A very colorful shuttlecock?
  4. current turn around rates at CGC

    Those must be some nice magazines.
  5. Legal Size Scanner thread.

    Got an HP 8250 about 3 years ago on Ebay for $25. Works like a charm. The only thing I don't like is the fact that I don't have room for it by the computer, so I keep it in the closet & get it out whenever I need to use it - and it's heavy! Does anyone know if there is a legal-size wireless scanner out there?
  6. Ebay 20% off

    Just curious. I've read that a lot of people get upset (rightfully so) if someone submits an offer, but when it's accepted they don't buy the book. If you submit offers, don't you run the risk of the seller not getting back to you until after the coupon expires? If they accept the offer, but too late to use the coupon, are we still 'obligated' to purchase the item?
  7. How do you protect yourself as a seller on eBay

    Don't skimp on the packing. Pack it very good so that he can't/shouldn't claim to have received a damaged slab. Check his feedback BEFORE shipping it out. From what I understand (and I may be wrong), if the tracking says it's been delivered, Ebay will side with you on any "not delivered' claim.
  8. Any one hear of Passaic Book Center?

    By all means - I love hearing these kind of stories. When I was a kid, back in the 70's, I lived a couple of blocks from The Book Stop in Wyoming, Mi. It was about 50/50 - paperbacks and comics. I used to love going there and buying my back issues. The owner, John, knew what I collected and kept the books that he knew I'd want behind the counter. He even sourced a DD #1 for my 13th Bday. When they were remodelling one year, they moved all of their comics to the 'dungeon'. It had plaster/concrete walls that were falling apart. Ceilings so low that I, as a kid, had to duck now and then. And it's light source was bulbs hanging from the ceiling. It was great!

    This sounds interesting. Can you elaborate, please?
  10. eBay non paying bidders

    For me, communication is the key. I don't care if you need some time to pay me, but let me know. Talk to me. I hate it when people don't communicate with me.
  11. Went right for But I Digress, then to the other columns, then to the articles. Last was the ads. On a side note ... I hated throwing them away, but a weekly paper like that really adds up fast. The pile of old CBGs in the corner got pretty big.
  12. When buying a car, who gets the Carfax?
