  2. Bump and Price Drop to $1,800.00. That's tax free and free shipping. The previous sales in 2019 on this book according to gocollect have been 2,495 2,075, 2,650 2,241 and 2,114.
  3. Hi. I have an Amazing Spider-Man 5 to sell. Graded CGC 7.5 Off White to White pages. CGC # 2037455004. Case is perfect and has been bagged and boxed since new. The price is $1,800.00 which is much lower than it has been selling for. I'll pay shipping USPS insured priority shipping with signature confirmation.

USA only please. Thanks. I bought and sold a few things prior to making a kudos page. I'm easy to deal with.
  5. Sure were some nice books sold today. I almost pulled the trigger on this one but controlled myself because its an Action 19 that I really want. Looks pretty nice for a 3.0 - $2,880.00
  6. I just saw a few past sales on Heritage. These go for a lot more than I thought. Nice.
  7. Hi, so you had the first 9.8 ever graded? Wow. So if this 90K sale is legit I suppose this is a good day for you.
  8. Really? Thanks, I really needed that boost today. I was wondering if Bid History is available on Heritage. Probably not. Could this have been two or maybe three people just bidding each other up? Once it hit around 45 or 50K I would think most everyone would have just bailed. Also if This turns out to be a bad sale meaning a deadbeat high bidder does Heritage make that known? And my final question to anybody who may want to chime in is do you think this will set a precedent or do you think the next 9.8 will come back down to the around previous level price wise?
  9. This is why I don't post on internet forums much. I obviously got the year wrong. It was 2018 not 2019. But instead of just pointing that know. OH boy do I feel stupid now!
  10. Haha nothing like a good natured ribbing. I was serious when I said Am I missing something. I thought I may have been. I can't believe a comic of that value would more than double in price since the previous known sale. From 38k two months ago to 90k? I can't help but feel something might be not quite right.
  11. Didn't get much last minute action. Looks like 915K w/bp
  12. 780K with 14 hours left. I think its going to sell for between ONE MILLION DOLLARS and 1.1 million, So about 850k without the bp. Some nice stuff going off later today. That TMNT #1 9.8 is at 75k w/bp ? Yikes, I believe the record is 38k.
  13. Very cool. You can't tell they are that big you're right.
  14. Hi Everybody, I recently won my 1st graded comic on Heritage last night. I usually use ebuy and Comiclink , but to test the waters with Heritage I bid on a cheaper book and I got it. I just want to verify how this works please. I bid on it about 10 minutes before it ended. It ended with no more bids so I thought I won it. But then each auction went to a live bid. A few hours later my book came up and no one bid. So is that how all Heritage auctions operate? Kind of like in 2 stages? Thanks
  15. Yep I think many people feel that way. Those Shomburg covers were the best and they'll always be the most desirable I suppose. He was the best of the best that guy. I do think that Avison and Shores did a pretty good job as well overall with backgrounds and foregrounds. Even Caps body looks pretty good on most covers. To me it seems they just couldn't get his face right in a way that Shomburg could or all that extra detail that he could.
  16. Most of my Silver and Bronze want list is complete so I've been considering looking for some Golden Age books. Thinking one early example of each of the DC and Timely Superhero. While researching the Timely Caps I've noted a few thing: Issue 4 I feel is undervalued. Its got Kirby, Simon, and Lee plus its a Shomburg cover. He drew Cap different for that cover, not with a crazed I'm gonna kill you look on his face. Very pleasing to look at cover. Issue 11 is cool as its not a WWII cover and Cap is drawn bigger than in most. The cover of #17 I think is Avison's best. Awesome horror cover and Cap looks huge and ripped. 20 & 22 are 2 great Syd Shores battlefield covers. 26 of course the return of Shomburg. 29 ,31 ,33 pure awesomeness. 37 seems to be the most popular of the Battlefield covers and goes for crazy money I suppose because the cover seems to depict the defeat of Germany. I'd like to get a Shomburg cover but eyes keep taking me back to issues 17 and 22.
  17. Funny how the first 10 to 15 appearances of Superman and Batman (In Action and Detective) go for huge money, but with Captain America Comics issues 4 to about 50 go for close to the same money with only a few exceptions. Well that 9.4 is up to 410K with 11 days to go.
  18. I definitely see you point. Personally I sold almost all my raw comics over the years and concentrated on key issue slabs mostly so when I'm gone my son can sell them easily and for top dollar. I was really just wondering how it has been stored all these years. So old and such high grade......and so valuable. I have a friend, 66 years old. He started buying comics in the late 50's through the late 70's. He kept them all. He has almost every comic produced from those years aside from the romance titles. (No BS, even obscure stuff). I helped him inventory and organize it over about a 3 year period and what a thrill that was, it was incredible how he missed pretty much no issues in all those years. He just bought every issue of every series every month for all those years. Well my point is that he stored them boxed mostly unbagged in Xerox paper boxes. And man did time do a number on them. He read them all so they had wear. Just sitting in those boxes for decades messed a lot of them up. He has a Detective 33 for example , in a bag since the mid 60's, when he took it out it practically crumbled. Just crazy what time can do to these things even if they aren't handled. I see pedigrees like the Fantucchio collection and can't help but wonder how he handled and stored them to keep them so well preserved. So I wonder how that Action 1 and other high grade Golden books like it are stored in a way in which time doesnt affect them so much, if at all.
  19. If I owned that Dentists copy of Action 1 I might consider getting it graded just for preservation of it. I wonder how it has been stored for the past 30 years or so.
  20. Interesting. I never new about this. So the ad in More Fun 51 came out in the previous issue in which Spectre was introduced in a story. The Detective 27 ad in Action 12 came out the same publishing month as Detective 27, May 1939. Did Action 12 hit the stands Detective 27?
  21. Ok Thank you. I didn't read all 56 pages of comments to see if that was discussed before I commented on the 9.8. I read Timely's and others explanations of how the 9.6 became a 9.8.
