  1. I read them, but anything debating my price or the validity of their generous offer is ignored. I will, however, sometimes lean towards accepting a borderline offer if they say something like I had this issue as a kid, I need it to fill a hole in a run and don't plan on reselling it, etc...
  2. I remember the thread...I'm thinking 10+ years ago. At that time, I am pretty sure he said he had recently came across the boxes in a gas station out in the desert somewhere. I remember lots and lots of pictures of minty FF48's and other 1966 Marvels. We all went nuts. He did sell a bunch on eBay, like others I bid on several and lost every time. I also remember he got crazy and had blow-ups with a few boardies, I believe he made some threats or something. Is that thread too old to find?
  3. much fun looking through all these, thanks for taking the time to upload all the pics! Just curious, why so many multiples on some issues?
  4. Loved it back in the 80's when it was the "eBay" of the time. Sold most of my original collection with a series of ads when I was a sophomore in college...actually have a copy of the last ad I placed, and a pic of that issue of Comic Buyers Guide!
  5. Hilarious. He's also listed it twice, with two different BIN prices But for more entertainment, check out his other listings at bargain prices...including a painting with a BIN of $1.5 million that he claims was the inspiration for the Disney "Pirates of the Caribbean" ride. Here's an awesome quote from the listing: " I have studied Thurl Ravens face from this I’ve determined that he was the model for this first Captain Jack Painting! He was also used as a model in the talking head in the Haunted Mansion which was verified by a him admitting this on a Disney movie video! This is a one of a kind theme park prop painting of what i " "believed" to be the first "Captain jack Sparrow" titled " Captain one eyed Jack" what appears to be from the first Disneyland 1967 Pirates of the Caribbean ride!,
  6. WOW!!!! Always a thrill to set GPA record lows with your purchases...sadly I've set more as a seller!
  7. Agreed, I take all mine with my camera phone in bright light with flash on, angled so reflection/glare is minimal. I lay them on white paper on kitchen counter, and take them standing on a kitchen stool. The height helps to deflect the glare and then I just zoom in and crop them with photo editor. They come out pretty good...
  8. Yep. Spreading a little kindness is always a good thing, particularly in the grand scheme of things
  9. Actually I think that's part of the problem...they find a CGC 9.8 copy listed as a Buy It Now on eBay at triple the last GPA sale and decide their G/VG copy is worth that much!
  10. Make sure you check SOLD completed auctions, all completed auctions includes every overpriced book that didn't sell.
  11. Glad it worked out for you, congrats! I don't check CL that often, but here in Orlando I've been checking periodically for years and have NEVER seen anything of any value like that....the vast majority of comic-related ads are tons of "I BUY COMICS" solicitations. The only stuff for sale is overpriced drek or dirt common $1-5 books. I think if anything of value that wasn't dramatically overpriced ever showed up on Orlando CL they'd have 100 emails and phone calls in seconds....
  12. Apologies if this has been posted or discussed elsewhere: Very impressive complete Spider-Man collection on eBay including AF15, ASM #1-700 and all associated titles plus several other key issues not related to Spidey. Anybody know who this belongs to? I wonder if the $250K asking price is even close to reasonable...looks like the AF15 has some resto. Check it out...
