  1. I have a individual series budget and an individual book cap for a key (ie. ASM 14) and First issues (TOS 39). Some series budgets are higher like ASM and FF, and some are lower like DD. I try to use Overstreet as a baseline as the general consesus from what I've gathered on forums here and others is that Overstreet undervalues books. So far I've gotten every book at par or cheaper than Overstreet guide value including shipping for my online purchases. Quote this

  4. This reminds me of the time I had a guy invite me over to his house to view his 9.8s. That was all he said not what books they were. It was the most pristine and well presented collection of 90s Image, Valiant and Malibu comics I've ever seen. He believed they were going to be worth millions as soon as the movies got made. It was like the anti-Jon Berk Collection.?
  5. I'm really enjoying the constructive discussions going on. It's nice to hear from others where they think the grading standard is going. I feel it's important for the collector/dealer voice to be heard, as the last time that the standards were changed/tightened/reinterpreted they seemed to be made with very little input from the majority of the collecting/dealer community. As it has been 15 years since those changes I feel that we are due for some new ones soon. My hope would be that these discussions would help to give voice to any concerns we may have. But as always if you like the look of a book and it is a price you're comfortable with paying then the numbers don't matter so much. Cheers.
  6. Absurd to think the grading increments could change or it would be absurd if they actually did? If I were to ask another question it would be if collectors who invested a lot of money into the current grades of their collections would be happy with such a change if it did happen? Would you resubmit in hopes of getting that higher grade ie. a current 9.2 book that is definitely not a 9.4 but could be the hypothetical 9.3?
  7. I'm more interested in the opinions and thoughts of the collecting community about this topic. Hence the post to the Discussion forum rather than a Q&A.
  8. Have fun. It's pretty challenging but rewarding when you put restrictions on it and get that book for the right price.
  9. Hi, Everyone. Coming out of the Arkham Comics hates CGC thread I had a few thoughts from watching his videos. He predicts that CGC is running out of leeway in conventional grading numbers and in order to maximize profit CGC will eventually go to a 0.1 increment scale ie. 9.0, 9.1, 9.2, 9.3 etc. Normally, I wouldn't put stock into it but he was right about the introduction of specialized labeling for a fee (The Walking Dead labels as an example). Thoughts on this or any of your own predictions?
  10. The company Comico published the Robotech comics. Super Dimensional Space Fortress Macross started as an Anime not a Manga. The EBay listing you linked to is basically a book that they assembled with dialogue put to animation cell stills. So in the states I would say the Comico issues would be the first.
  11. New for this week. Love how the covers can give so much anticipation for what's inside.
