  1. What about Super Chuck (Mile High Comics) super ability to acquire more low value comics than anyone in the world and then price them at levels higher than Superman can jump???
  2. What a great book! Being a "math guy", I wondered what kind of a "return on investment" that would be. Some child's parents probably gave him a dime, back in 1940, and told him he should not waste his money on comic books. The child buys the book and now it has a FMV of $83K. How many other investments return an average of over 18.3% for 81 years? Good luck selling this awesome piece of comic history.
  3. Nice pick up. Congrats.
  4. I am not sure there are MORE collectors out there buying books. I am rather certain that many collectors who were once in their 20s and 30s with mortgages and babies, are now "older" and in poessesion of more "disposable income". This may be one of the key factors in the rise in "value".
  5. Fair enough. Thanks for the clarification and for taking all the time to write this up.
  6. I am not sure about all the rules for HOS. Thankfully these nominations do not come up as often as PL. Is it acceptable for Domo to nominate Dylan or does the aggrieved party (in this case @Polonsky have to make the nomination)? Just want to make sure everything is done in accordance to the rules.
  7. $10 . Seriously, this is absurd (as was the $12 nomination previously mentioned). If people don't care enough about their word to keep to their commitments, then why would anyone want to do business with them. If people would break their word over $10 or $12, then I am rather certain they would break it over larger sums as well. Once money becomes your master, that is a hard path to ever come off. Personally, I don't care if the tranaction was for a nickle (5 cents), if a person does not make good on the deal, then they should be nominated and kept on the list until they resolve
  8. Words cannot express what you are going through right now and I am certain that I do not have the right words to bring you comfort. Please know, however, that I am saddened by your loss and can only imagine the grief you must be experiencing. I will pray for you and your family.
  9. I believe the great detectives of the board have answered all the questions far better than I could have. I want to thank the OP for sharing this really cool piece of comic history. Awesome find. I also want to thank everyone who took the time to research the other information found in this thread. I found it a great read. When I first started reading the thread and saw "Letter to Superman", I was a little confused by the 1939 date, as I am pretty certain the first "letters to the editor" page did not show up until Action #245 (in 1958). Then I read further and saw that it wa
  10. 100% agree with this. or as we wrote before we had these "like" buttons..... +1
  11. This entire thread makes me sad; seriously sad. Given the book is now listed for sale (at a significant increase) leaves little doubt (at least in my mind) that RS was motivated by $$$$ and not simply the desire to keep the book for his own collection. Not that either reason would be acceptable, however, purely breaking your word for profit just makes me sad. This was a deal made here on the boards (which is kind of like "family"). How does one get up in the morning and decide to cheat someone else, let alone cheat someone who is part of their "family"? I am saddened by this. I h
  12. If books are priced at the correct price point (FMV), then it does not surprise me that MCS would be out of stock. If their business model is to sell as many books as possible (not hoard them), then they would price them fairly and move them quickly (thus often being out of stock until they can aquire more).
  13. Not to be technical, however, no one is going to call this a robbery OR at least no one who knows the definition of robbery. Robbery: The action of taking property unlawfully from a person or place by force or threat of force. No one was assaulted, threatened, or even aware of the theft taking place and as such no robbery occurred. IF this occurred as claimed, the correct term would be Burglary (entry into a building illegally with intent to commit a crime, especially theft). To be more specific, IF it occurred, I would think Burglary of a Motor Vehicle would be the correct cha
  14. I was a big fan of the first WW movie; considering it one of the better DC movies. I enjoyed the first 5 or so minutes of WW84. Then the scene changes, Diana is no longer on Themyscira, and the story line quickly turns to garbage (IMO). Maybe part of the disappointment comes from the fact that the first movie was so good and from the expectation that this movie would somehow measure up to its predcessor.
