  1. Anyone wishing to pass along their collection to one of their kids that will appreciate comic collecting, I am available for adoption
  2. My GT-15000 had deep scratches in the glass. I just carefully removed it and had a glass shop cut me a new one. The plastic strips that are part of the scanner bed peel off easily and for the gray glass line borders there is nice gray cellophane like tape that looks perfect when applied.(to the underside of the new glass) It all depends how much that kind of thing bothers you. Mine is like new with the glass and that tape. The new glass is tempered with edges polished and was very inexpensive to buy.
  3. I am looking for First printings of Fat Freddy's Cat issue 1 with no creases along the spine (just has "By Gilbert Shelton".... no other names on cover. Red cover with $.75 cents price) Willing to pay from $25 to $100 per piece depending on how nice of a copy. Also, looking for 1st printing of Issue 5 ($1.00 cover price and Purple border) with no spine creases. and issues 6 (yellow theme with $2.00 U.S. price) and 7 (pied piper theme) 1st prints.

  6. So, I finally got around to submitting my Fat Freddy's Cat comics. This was one of my favorite series from back when it came out. I am so happy I also created a set that is now #1 in the Fat Freddy's Cat category complete with detailed descriptions and high quality scans. I had to build the synopsis from scratch for each issue from my reader copies so in case any of you were wondering about the actual main stories contained within each issue Here is the link to my set: https://comics.www.collectors-society.com/registry/comics/PeopleSetDetail.aspx?PeopleSetID=127326
  7. Hi Mollie, Both of the below issues are graded and on the way back from CGC and need to be added as I post this. Thanks! Set: Fat Freddy's Cat Issue: Fat Freddy's Cat 1 Fourth Printing On the above, I have a request in already to have the fourth printing added for issue #1. When I was looking at the census, I notice there are no graded copies of issue #2 third print. Can you remove that one when you get the 4th printing of #1 added? Set: NYX: No Way Home Issues: NYX: No Way Home 5 NYX: No Way Home 6
  8. No PL/HOS members. Payment via PayPal. First gets it. If via PM, then the earliest PM gets it. Please pay within 2 days of invoice, or the book will be available for sale again. Look at the nice, high-res scans before committing. No returns as I intend to pay off some recent acquisitions of my own and I'm just not that into Venom (this was just re-slabbed so it's pristine!)

  10. NEW PRICE $420 (plus shipping) -- THAT'S 15% OFF COMBINED GPA! Up for sale is a set of X-23 (2010) Issues #1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 19, 21 ALL CGC 9.8s! I am asking $450 for all as a package deal (plus shipping) The combined GPA on the last sale for each these is $494. A patient person could make a nice profit off of these very easily, especially if Marvel pursues X-23 as a potential main movie character. I am just looking to recoup some ridiculous school fees now that my son is in highschool and the cost of education is apparently higher when you hit that stage!

  11. Record sale was around $3850. I will beat that. Anyone have one of the 5 copies? Message me to discuss. I am not looking for this as a return on investment by any means. I just want it and as luck would have it, had taken brief breaks in my search that apparently are the only times there were 9.8s up for auction. ?
  12. Well I got my non deluxe 88 finally and recently found another. What is it with me and rare ones x 2 for this set! When it rains it pours, so best to keep em in a dry place when that happens

  15. Crease on front thru the "O"? You have noticeable colorbreaks thru the black in the lower left logo. I know it is part of the printing issue, but the 9.8s I've seen have only a single super small barely noticeable color break there that look like less than 1/8" I have submitted personally 20 or so with way less defects that got rejected prescreen. I think some of the early 9.8s were graded a little less stringent. The later graded ones are in much better shape in my opinion.
