    Collector is an understatement.

  1. A few randoms I sent in a while ago. They weren't really books that I collect specifically, but for whatever reason I liked them when I saw them at different local comic shops. Plus, who doesn't love a Super Villain Team Up? Lol
  2. I went to Motor City on Friday. I'm not really a Convention guy, so I really don't have a point of reference . Think I was at Motor City about 20 years ago, and that's it. $30 for one day, $10 to park. Additional fees for anything involving the celebrities. Seemed like a fair mix of things to see. Graded books, some guys had decent key ungraded, and plenty of lower grade stuff too. Can't say I recall being blown away by any particular books, but I was also kind of rushed as I arrived later than I would have liked. Saw some of the Walking Dead stars, and Neve Campbell. I think Henry Winkler may have waved at me. I was kind of staring trying to figure out if the old guy sitting there was The Fonz - then he waved - which made me realize I was in fact staring at him. After reading the previous posts, I probably would have liked to have seen the big dealers there, but I had a good time. I'd return next year.
  3. Hi, just checking to see if anyone would be interested in trading one of their later Amazing Spiderman books in 9.8, for my earlier ASM book in 9.6? Pictured is ASM #183 in 9.6. That's what I have for trade. I'd swap for any one of these in 9.8 White (not keys just gaps in my run): ASM 270, 279, 284, 285, 286, 290, 291. Hopefully that's a fair offer. I've no preference from that list I provided BTW, any of those would help. P.S. Trade within the U.S. only, please.
  4. ...and the rest of what came along with the ASM books....
  5. Some Spidey books that arrived today... The 9.8s fill holes in a run I'm making.
  6. I appreciate the input folks. Not a key book, but one I'd submit if I thought it could be corrected (it's an Amazing Spiderman book, modern). I normally just buy them already slabbed, but this was one I didn't have yet in my run (graded, I mean).
  7. For anyone more knowledgeable than myself.... this book has a "dent/crease" (for lack of a better term). Hopefully the pic is helpful. Just don't know enough about the pressing process to know if it's worth doing , any thoughts would be appreciated.
  8. I stopped into a shop near me recently, and he told me he stopped carrying new comics.... just dealing in older books (the shop does other things too, anime, etc). Just seemed odd, with at least 3 other shops in town, seems like he'd definitely drive some folks away....
  9. Those are my favorite Action #1000 covers. Nice .
  10. I didn't say I paid their price lol. I just left them in their bags for now.
  11. Some books I bought at Fantasticon in Toledo this weekend. They are all very nice looking in person. (I might add, I thought all the vendors at the show were very personable, and that it was a pleasant experience dealing with / interacting with them.)
