  1. Counterfeits, forgeries...is no hobby safe?

    I saw at a local comic show a fellow vendor had a Hulk 181 offered for sale. Upon looking through the book it had the page that has the Marvel value stamp on it swapped with the page from a Hulk 179. Page numbers are the same, the story is now completely different. What is disgusting is after the vendor was told of the books fraud he continued to market it.
  2. Collection Organization Tips

    Thanks for this post. I am a drawer box user, and I love mine. I like being able to pull out the bottom box and look through it and easily replace it. I HATE trying to get at the bottom box in a stack of longs.
  3. 'PLANET COMICS' (is deserving of its own thread)

    glad to hear it. After looking more carefully I do see it is just the bag that is ripped. Nice book! As I mentioned previously in the thread, Planet 41 was the book that got me started on the complete run. I have the Lost valley copy:
  4. Arguing with people on Craigslist (or Kijiji)

    He expects a wealthy industrialist named Pennypacker will come to his home and purchase his comics for copious volumes of cash and take them away lovingly.

    Grats. I assume the slab was damaged in shipping?
  6. 'PLANET COMICS' (is deserving of its own thread)

    I am still proud of the fact that the Planet 15 in the PS Artbooks compendium is my book. Scanned it front cover to back and sent it to Mr. Roy Thomas himself.
  7. 'PLANET COMICS' (is deserving of its own thread)

    When are you getting 41? I am on pins and needles waiting for some company in the complete run room.
  8. my favorite memory of the Black Panther is when I sold my CGC 5.5 copy of FF52
  9. I can't defeat 8 year olds in a race up and down the street. You are on your own.
  10. 'PLANET COMICS' (is deserving of its own thread)

    I might as well. About 30% of my collection is raw
  11. Wolverine is not pain free. He is in constant pain all day long as his body rejects the adamantium and then he heals. All day long.
  12. I see no reason to move us around. We have been in the same spot for quite a few years. I guess the motivation was for our buyers to be lost and unable to find us. Not a fan at all.
  13. Arguing with people on Craigslist (or Kijiji)

    I did recently talk to a guy who listed his entire collection for sale on Kijiji. His listing had a picture of a Hulk 181, not disclosing the MVS is missing of course. The entire valuation was what the Hulk 181 would be priced at if it had the stamp. The pictures were of longboxes with some books pulled up slightly so you can see what is there. Some keys, Xmen 266, Xmen 244, etc. The price was $2.95 per book take it all. It was about 10 longs. Once I contacted him I quickly learned the Hulk 181 was no longer part of the deal as he had promised it to someone else. The price of $2.95 per book still stands. I started to explained to him that without the Hulk 181 his valuation is to high as Deathmate isn't a $2.95 book. He got very hostile, accused me of being a dealer and he said he has no interest in doing business with any dealers who are just going to rip him off. I told him that if the Hulk 181 is no longer part of the deal he needs to remove the pictures he prominently displayed as he is misleading his potential buyers. He responded with more hostility so I just said "ok, good luck" and said goodbye. No need to waste time.
  14. Arguing with people on Craigslist (or Kijiji)

    I typically don't like to waste my time. If I am even interested in making an offer for what they have I just make it and move on. Around these parts the competition is fierce for comic collections. The ones I find available on Craigslist are still there available for a reason.
