  1. I was looking for 'brittle pages' on the label notes... Amazing how they get that effect. I guess eye appeal isn't a prerequisite for a 9.8 anymore.
  2. That is something I've never seen before. My older brother collected Strange Tales when we were kids, and I definitely remember that issue in his collection! He used to write his initials on the covers of his books, maybe I'll come across one that he once owned. That would be great.
  3. Congratulations! Well done, Gino!
  4. I had a similar experience when my dad gave me 7 cents to go buy him a newspaper. When I got there, the price had jumped to 10 cents. It's strange that a comic was only slightly more expensive than a newspaper back then. Now it's 3 or 4 times the price.
  5. I thought 'Tunas' was slang for 'dollars'. 300000 tunas. Still too much.
  6. Amazing Spider-Man #7 - "The Vulture's Return !". I was 7 years old. I can vividly remember flipping through the comics on the spinner rack and seeing that cover. Had to buy it. The funny thing is, I don't remember any of the other comics on that rack.
  7. Add Ohio to the list of Ebay sales tax states. I was going to use the 10% Ebay bucks offer to buy a few things. I noticed the sales tax as I was about to checkout. I quickly removed the items from my cart. 10% - 7.25 % isn't much of an incentive. Oh well. I haven't bought from Heritage since they imposed Ohio tax either.
  8. It seems like I get more bucks offers when I don't buy as much on Ebay. I'll buy comics on Ebay, but for everything else, Amazon. You can't beat free 2 day shipping and 5% cash back.
  9. Mandela Effect. I have no memory of such a thread.
  10. I thought silver bullets were for werewolves. I should have shuttup and finished reading. He was a werewolf.
  11. That was a beautiful tribute to your dad. He was a special man, always there for those who needed him. I'm so sorry for your loss, Scott.
  12. That's sad. We went to an Indians' game in Toronto years ago. I was very impressed with how cordial and polite the people were, even to the opposing fans. When Roberto Alomar came up to bat, he was loudly booed. I asked a young boy of 8 or so, "Why are they booing Alomar ?" . He quickly replied, "Because he spat on an umpire!" .
  13. Just some friendly advice. Combine all the books you want to sell in one sales thread. The moderators will close multiple threads for using too much screen real estate.
