  1. I think it's a good thing. Maybe I can get some good deals on ebay like I could 25 years ago since things will be harder to find and you have to really search for them. Fine by me.
  2. Virtually no one living has any genuine childhood nostalgia for anything golden age either. I have no genuine childhood nostalgia for anything at all that I collect. All the comics, movies, records, everything I like has absolutely nothing to do with nostalgia or my childhood. Plus platinum age stuff is more popular and more collected than ever so I don't know what you are talking about. It used to be easy to get any of it dirt cheap. Not any more.
  3. Highest prices paid for Platinum age comic books... $9.560 - The Adventures of Mr. Obadiah Oldbuck (Brother Jonathan Extra IX Bookstand Edition) 1842 $7,170 - Mickey Mouse the Mail Pilot Big Little Book 1933 $6,572 - The Yellow Kid in McFadden's Flats 1897 $5,377 - The Adventures of Mr. Obadiah Oldbuck (Brother Jonathan Extra IX Bookstand Edition) 1842 $4,780 - The Adventures of Mr. Obadiah Oldbuck (Brother Jonathan Extra IX Bookstand Edition) 1842 $4,481 - Dreams of the Rarebit Fiend 1905 $4,182 - The Yellow Kid in McFadden's Flats 1897 $3,883 - Detecti
  4. The highest price paid for a non superhero comic book... $262,000 - Suspense Comics #3 $167,000 - Archie #1 $138,000 - Archie #1 $116,000 - Walt Disney's Comics and Stories #1 $108,000 - Planet Comics #1 $101,000 - Startling Comics #49
  5. 1. Suspense Comics #3 or Archie #1 probably 2. see above 3.The Adventures of Mr. Obadiah Oldbuck
  6. Broncho (brŏn´kō), n. {Sp. bronco rough, wild.} A native or a Mexican horse of small size. {Western U.S.} There was an outlaw that went by that name in the late 1800s and the spelling of his name sometimes had and "H" and sometimes didn't depending on the source. There was also silent film actor who mainly starred in westerns that went by "Broncho Billy" and his name too was spelled both ways constantly.
  7. Nope. The bad printing and defects are one of the things that make old comics more interesting to me.
  8. I have seen a Green Lantern #1 with a double cover before.
