    Thanks for all of the PMs. One thing is clear - there are a lot of people interested in pre-Robin Tecs! I'm really only interested in trades for mine. Would love to hear from someone open to trading up or down or would like to do a larger deal on some combination of selling and/or trading of some GA keys/want list books. Please feel free to reach out - happy to discuss any potential deal!

    I think we all believe, or at least have the inclination that, the other company made CGC better. It kickstarted them hiring more people, improving TATs, and taking greater interest in customer concerns.

    Speaking of all of this - relevant new sale that hit GPA: My Comic Shop Amazing Fantasy (1962-1996) #15 CGC 3.5 $18,975

    I know the guy that runs Heronext and from my experience he's above board. In fact he told me he wouldn't do a deal if he couldn't report the actual sales price to GPA. So that 'sold' price should accurately reflect the price it sold for.

    Since your post is indirectly questioning my integrity as the buyer, I will respond. If I post an in a sales thread, if it was my last dollar, I would make good. I may not post much on these boards but that doesn't mean I'm not a well known entity in good standing in the hobby. Chris and I have done deals together and he worked with me on the price to the extent that it was a no brainer to buy this book. I am a frequent lurker on the GA forum and honestly all of the exposure that these books have been given over the last year has really sparked my interest beyond the traditional GA superhero keys. Yes, seeing the sale on HA for the raw copy was an eye opener and I didn't know that less than 10 copies were on the CGC census. So when Chris put his copy up for sale I thought this was a great opportunity to buy this book with such a great cover at a price that made it worthwhile just to have any copy. There's always price compression at the bottom where any copy will sell for a minimum not too much lower than a better low grade copy. Also, people suffer from the recency effect where seeing 3 copies in short time frame makes collectors think that a book is common when it clearly is not. So if I didn't pick up this copy, its likely another one wasn't going to show up for a very long time. And I'm also confident that if I didn't buy this book, someone else would have soon after.

    I held the book in hand. It had the 'look and feel' of a 9.2. I had no issue with the grade and it was by far the nicest copy I had ever seen.
