  1. Hello all, looking for thoughts on this one. Some rust on one staple, appears to be minor tears around that staple on cover but not detached. Last five pages are chipped off on the top corner (not folded over, just missing). There's also one picture I marked with red in photoshop, it appears like the gloss is missing along the edge, hard to show but it just looks a bit like a shadow because it doesn't reflect light the same way. I'm not sure if this leads me to believe it was just gloss wear, if someone took an eraser to it, or if it may have been previously wet in that spot? Hard to
  2. If you don't show up at the start, you might as well not even show up.
  3. That's cool those 94 fleer ultra look nothing like the 94 fleer ultra set.
  4. Seller responded fairly quickly to me and asked if I wanted a partial refund and to keep the items or if I just wanted to return them. I was not about to negotiate FMV with this guy so they are all going back, he didn't seem to mind. I called ebay CS and they basically recommended I just use the "return this item" that shows up right in the order history. Problem is I have to do a return on each individual item, there isn't an option for the whole order... so it gave me three pre-paid but seperate return labels. The ebay rep also recommended I send the items back using all three labels w
  5. Hilarious they can scam that many people, with 11,000+ transactions, and still have an account. https://www.ebay.com/fdbk/feedback_profile/pcbcomicsandsports?filter=feedback_page:All&_trksid=p2545226.m2531.l4585
  6. Yeah it has me very confused because there are certain aspects where there are similarities, for example the nightmare #9 bottom squarebound edge the paper appears to have folded over slightly and showing white paper which is also present in the seller's scan, but none of the color breaking is there on any of the edges. Why put all that effort into touching up images, it would take 5-10 minutes per book at least just to blend things and this is a person with 11000 feedback so not a smart time investment. If they were stock images you'd have to expect they would be misrepresented. That top e
  7. Mo' purchases Mo' problems. I bought these books on ebay and received them today. I've attached the top three scans that were in the seller's listing, and then I've attached the books how they arrived. All three of them appear to have issues that were not present in any of the pictures... I'm questioning if these are even the right copies of the books?
  8. I like the data.. is there a way to convert this to a chart of some type? Also if there was a choice to change showing data from weekly to monthly to yearly, it could be much easier to read the data at a glance.
  9. That's super cool you should post the original art, somewhere.
  10. Rule of 25 doesn't seem to apply to the awesome marvel x-men cards that came out between 93-96, those things were the pinnacle of collecting back then, kids cared more about collecting the cards than the actual comics of the characters they were based on. Depending on some of the brands you can get complete sets of '94 fleer ultra x-men for example for $20-30. Pokemon was just a few short years later, I was around during the peak of that as well, and it wasn't too different. "1st edition" packs were artificially rare, they weren't super exclusive like everyone thinks, if you're pegging t
  11. Yeah that 4.5 look like a 5.5-6.0 compared to the other one I got... I've seen that one sitting there on mycomicshop for a while now with no biters.. it presents well but I guess demand for low grade isn't there. Seems like a nice copy though. I've just gotten tired of waiting for Fine/VF copies to show up because it doesn't happen in the 5 or so years I've really paid attention. As for the next Frankenstein issue I picked that up as well, it was a slightly better "6.0" but had to pay the price at $150. I've tried to get a good copy on the boards for a while but very few people selli
  12. $65 each, not a steal I've seen them cheaper on ebay but I don't know what kind of demand there is really if resold.
  13. I summon the mag guru's with a question on this one.. I found these hard to find first issues in the comiclink exchange, the one on the left had a picture but the other one on the right did not, I bought both anyway, both assigned a 4.0 grade. Seemed like a no brainer at the time but the second copy to my eye looked significantly worse, oxidized staples, color fade/color loss, and one of the worst odors I've had in a while from a comic, likely mold or something similar. I just wanted to close it up and put it away, it was difficult to deal with. I've already asked comiclink on their return
  14. Yeah the same insufficiently_thoughtful_person who went into japan and was filming bodies in the suicide forest in 2018 and it made national news. Then he put on some boxing show that did way better than it ever deserved to, fighting some other UK youtube rival. Then he did it again. Everything he does is a publicity stunt. I wouldn't take a single thing posted on his youtube as anything other than an attempt to rope in more viewers and attention to himself.
