  1. I will never pass on The Real Ghostbusters stuff if possible. I think that line and the 2000's Harley Quinn series are the only ones that I'm all too happy to have multiples upon multiples of.
  2. I went to my first flea market in forever yesterday because a vendor there was advertising $1 books for a $0.25 and priced books at 50% off. Silly me, being out of the game so long, I didn't have an updated list to really dig into the priced books and got there a bit late so the $1 boxes (of which there were a lot) were picked through rather well. Still I found some things I'm sure I didn't have yet, plus a few little oddities. The last photo with Son of Satan were a couple books from a different flea market.
  3. I'm loving those toys, especially the Saba and Real Ghostbusters stuff.
  4. I definitely appreciate all the input, gang. I tend to stray from collecting signatures, unless they are already signed at the time of purchase. I personally find the process of figuring out the perfect book to get signed, time spent in lines, and the cost of both the signiature and grading not worth it. The signiatures I have graded current that are personalized are an “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” #1 photo variant signed by Ming-Na Wen and a “Jay and Silent Bob” photo cover signed by Jason Mewes. They are definitely books I would be hard pressed to sell (if anyone would even want them lol) but I have been trying to organize and was curious how they would effect the values (if any). And I think I have the answer. Again, I appreciate all the comments!
  5. I think I just got insanely lucky because they were in a box with a bunch of other comic mags, like Wizard Magizine. So most of the hunters around here probably saw those sticking out of the box and moved on. I, on the other hand, have no reservations about digging through a box of throwaways in the hopes of finding something unique.
  6. I figured that may be the case. I’ve only ever had it done twice out of the handful of signed books I have. Thank you for the reply.
  7. So really random question. I have a few yellow labeled signed photo variant comics that are signed by the actors on the cover. They personalized them by signing “To X...” and then their names. Do you think it lowers the value or if someone wants their signitature then it doesn’t matter?
  8. If you ever decided to do it, let me know. I’m thinking these are cool, but not really within the focus of what I’m hunting for.
  9. So I’m not sure if this belongs here or in another forum, but I wanted everyone’s opinion on these. A couple summers ago, I hit up a yard sale that was advertising $0.25 comics. It was mostly modern stuff (of course I got there late), but I found a few of these. I bought them mostly on a whim because I’d never seen them before and I loved the black and white art work. Anyways, I’ve seen them vary in price online and I’d say these are about a 7-8.5, but I’m not the greatest at grading books in the 60’s and 70’s. My question is less about the grade and more about if anyone thinks they are worth officially graded? I only have the 6 issues and not the full set, so I’m conflicted on submitting them vs just throwing them in a box and calling it a day.
  10. After years of collecting, with a focus in the last several on Harley Quinn, I finally added a copy of Batman Adventures #12 to the collection. The price was so great I just had to snag a second copy. And my first comic purchases of 2020 to boot. ... ... Okay, that sounded funnier in my head.
  11. Not from this week, but I was organizing my stuff from last year and came across my favorite find (this). It was easily my luckiest purchase too because of the price paid.
