  1. Again, I'm not saying that fakes don't exist, but this is still bending the argument. The FBI warns that around 70% and higher. Not 90%. Second point, it's specific to sports memorabilia. Also, old sports memorabilia, as in, Babe Ruth, Mickie, etc etc. These are not comic facts in any regard. I would agree that I'm sure fakes have increased substantially over the last few years with the quickly intensifying market, but I still have a hard time applying the above quote, to what's reality today.
  2. This is a gross and disgusting attitude. Period. People were getting signatures on books decades before the Heavens opened up and blessed us with the unmeasurable CGC Signature Series. I also appreciate the CGC SS line, but I severely disagree with this mentality. It fosters elitism.
  3. still looking. If anyone is interested in selling the above, please PM me thanks all!
  4. I think it boils down to the type of collector. For you, you are a sketch/artist collector/supporter. Much like even myself where I hadn't bothered to even get sketches graded and submitted, I just kept them raw because I wanted the sketch! But I feel like the majority of collectors are either, inexperienced, or speculators. Maybe not a vast majority? I don't know, but my feeling is that the perceived value on CGC grades of books in the last year or so have really changed the game on the hobby... sketch covers included.
  5. Sadly, 9.8 will be more desired and will heighten a sketch cover's value over a superior 9.6 sketch by the same artist.
  6. well, now yeah! LOL! Someone else tried to personalize my book for me too, and I said no as well and got a funny look... who was it... they were personalizing everyone's book in line too... I can't remember who it was for the life of me. I want to say it was Jim Lee, but I don't remember. Anyway, I have some pretty bad sketch cover stories too... some really disappointing ones. One sketch cover that I have to say was amazing though was Jae Lee. What a hero. I should post that story up of what he did for me in a separate story. I've had a few run ins with Neal Adams too
  7. I'd be curious to see these, can you post a link?
  8. Are people truly interested in these things? I think they look absolutely awful... Cheesy, lazy... unimaginative... And they now seem to be coming out in droves! Is this the new trend?
  9. LOL This is easily the funniest, best thing I will see all week, and I am confident for saying that, knowing that today is only Monday.
  10. Can someone please explain to me why WOLVERINE VOLUME 2 #88 with DEADPOOL on the cover is so hot?? How on earth is a mid 90s comic at 9.8 blue label fetching $500 usd
