  1. Closed thread - Item no longer available.
  2. I recently purchased a CGC 9.6 graded comic from a seller, and was surprised to see the jagged edge on the back top cover. I assume this is from the factory and in production the cut wasn't as clean as it should be? Given the book is a 9.6 grade, is it safe to assume that CGC does not penalize for this type of production "defect"? Anyone have experience with something like this? Thanks.

  4. Been in touch with John over the course of several months and have always been responsive to my inquiries ... which led to a very smooth exchange involving a sale of a variant that I hold dear to me. But knowing it will go to the right collector in a good "home" is all I can ask for. Thanks, John, for the business, but more importantly, for your passion!
  5. and hopefully they'll figure out the newton rings by then
  6. If that's a Weiner Bang ... then what's this heat sealed to one of my Spider-Man #1 Platinum books???
  7. You make a great point ... so very true. I do pull it out on bad days and no matter how many times I look at it, it brings this euphoria to me. Sometimes it's weird to think that none of my wife, kids, family or friends get it ... and it's just me and my comics. An unspoken relationship.
  8. Even if it's for home insurance/theft coverage purposes, it's recommended to catalogue everything with estimated values ... so if you need to make an insurance claim, you'll have it all. I've been starting to do this and it kinda kills two birds with one stone. I've actually been meaning to ask CGC if they have all of our historical submissions on their system that maybe we can get our hands on as proof of valuables for insurance purposes. Our submissions drops off after several months, but would be great to get a list of all submissions from the beginning of time ... similar to PSA where they
  9. Agreed ... now they are. And that's sort of my point that several years ago, there were far fewer in the open market. Now it's being flooded with them, even the CPVs ... as they're all coming out of the woodwork. So unless you've got a 9.8/9.9/10.0 ... I wouldn't really say they've got long term growth potential. But great books to read though!
  10. So very true. I guess I should have titled this thread as Succession Planning for your Comics ... I find this topic isn't discussed enough and with the seriousness it needs. Mismanagement could definitely kill off the spirit we are all trying to keep alive in the hobby. I am doing the exact same thing as you with the sticky notes. Great points!
  11. Death does tend to do that to people ... bummer wouldn't you say?
