  1. 2017 NEW COMPETITIVE SET REQUEST

    Hi Mollie, Could you please add "Rebirth" Aquaman and Green Arrow 2016 sets? Thanks
  2. 2017 SET EXPANSION REQUEST

    Hello Mollie, Could you please expand the 2011 Green Arrow set to include issue #47, the poly-bagged sketch edition (0289525013)? Thank you!
  3. Latest Upgrades!

    Both of these came through eBay! The 168 (1974) is an Adams cover and the 199 (1977) is Kubert. Both with white pages!
  4. Horror From Neal

    War From Neal Got this one the other day from eBay. Highest graded (1 of 3) with white pages. This was the first of only three, 168, 201 and 204.
  5. I used CCS twice. The first time the book didn't look like it was pressed. The second time I sent in a book, it was ruined. They did refunded most of what I had into the book, but in the end, I owned a low grade overpriced book. Needless to say I found another presser. 2017 seems to be a particularly tough year for grading for CGC and inconsistency has always been an issue. Recently I sent in 4 books that had been graded previously by CGC (all 9.6) - the second time I got back a 9.8, a 9.6, a 9.4 and a 9.2. Not really terrible but bothersome. What bugs me most about your story is the difference in the pics of the comics.
  6. 2017 NEW COMPETITIVE SET REQUEST

    Hi Mollie, Could you please add G.I. Combat - 2012 2nd series? The full set consists of #0 - #7 with a single variant of #1 (I only have #1 - #4 now) thanks
  7. 1956 GI Combat 9.4 Quality Comics

    Single highest graded and one of the last couple before DC took over. Only 3 of this number have been graded so far. These are easily found in low grade, but high grades are very scarce. The black covers make it even tougher.
  8. Dover Delaware comic con

    Nope. You live near there?
  9. Dover Delaware comic con

    We drove to Dover this morning to attend the comic con, about an hour each way. I live in Milton Delaware where we don't even have a LCS. Lots of costumes, food but not a lot of comics. Most were priced at $1 - $3, with very few silvers or golds. Lots of artists though and plenty of novelties. Harry potter wand booth, toys everywhere, costume contest and all kinds of neat crafts. The stay puft marshmallow man (turns out to be a woman) looks a bit deflated and smaller than I remember. It was a fun time!
  10. The Haunted Tank!

    GI Combat 152,This arrived yesterday! An upgrade for my set. Highest grade, 1 of 3. Almost sounds like a Borg designation! Anyway picked this one up from eBay for a reasonable price. If anyone has something higher than what I have in my set, and you might consider selling it, let me know! Thanks!
  11. GI Combat 1979

    Just picked this one up from eBay last week. One of two in this grade and only seven graded in total.
  12. Have these slabs been tampered with?

    I just looked at some of mine and they have those marks too. Must be from the manufacturing process.
  13. 2017 SET EXPANSION REQUEST

    Hi, Could you please add to the Green Arrow (2011) set? Green Arrow #28 - 0247896004, #29 - 0247896005, #30 - 0247896006, #35 - 0247896008 Thanks Rich
  14. Impeding traffic

    I thought impeding traffic citations were for little old ladies going 35 on the beltway...
