  1. Yep, I counted at least 10:
  2. Definitely not the craziest price ever, just the most recent crazy price - saw this yesterday:
  3. What's the most ridiculous Stan lee SS???...

    Oh geez, please make it stop! He couldn't even hit the white. Yet another very high-grade mega-key destroyed.
  4. How many cb-ticks can you spot on this 9.6?
  5. A very different way to sell a colllection.

    This. Seller seems like a loon. Seller has ALREADY cherry-picked and arranged his collection into particular boxes in particular order to show you. So turn it around and tell him you understand that he doesn't want to get cherry-picked - and neither do you! Buh-bye!
  6. Ebay issue and I am seeking some advice

    Don't know about that but I do know this - sending $700 through the mail without signature-receipt required is an expensive mistake. Just saw it was to Canada to Brazil. Ouch.
  7. Wow! That is a big line-up!
  8. Robert Kirkmans History of Comics

    Yeah, definitely felt like he was lawyerly parsing his words at that point. Maybe Jack didn't tell him directly at that time, or maybe he did and gave various reasons. But clearly over the years it has become known what problems Kirby was having with Marvel and Stan so to just come out and say "I don't know" left a lot still to be said.
  9. What's the most ridiculous Stan lee SS???...

    I think it resembles shenanigans more than tomfoolery. But, just like grading, tomfoolery is subjective.
  10. Yeah, all I hear whenever Smith was talking was Charlie Brown's teacher.
  11. What's the most ridiculous Stan lee SS???...

    And King probably thinks he's doing the guy a favor since the book will obviously end up selling on Ebay for hundreds of dollars in a couple days anyway.
  12. The quibble-zone would probably be whether VF is high-grade or not. Since most collectors never ever see a 10.0 or a 9.9, those two grades should be in their own category of "super-high-grade". One may even make the case of a 9.8/9.6 being "super-high-grade" since the flaws may be ever so slight. Maybe the grade brackets can be something like: 10.0-9.6 "Super-High-Grade/ Nearly Flawless Or Perfect" 8.0-9.4 "High Grade/ Great Looking" 4.0-7.5 "Mid-Grade/ Average Looking" 0.5-3.5 "Low-grade/ Shabby Looking"
  13. Interesting. Based on numbers of books graded (not in this chart but in other data), the majority of books graded are less than 20 years old and nearly all of them are 9.8s. Most people who send books to grade probably self-select the higher-grades to send in across most ages of books. So even for GA/SA/BA books in the chart abovve, the "median" and "average" grade books are most likely from a set of cherry-picked books and not representative of typical books of that age.
