  1. I received these awesome gifts from Francisco, which included a some Hawaiian goodies. I've never received a Mele Kalikimaka card, so that was fun, too. I'm especially looking forward to reading the Marvel Masterworks, as I'm new to collecting GA books and have never read these stories. Sorry for the delay in posting, but the presents were shipped to my office and I've been on vacation since Christmas Day. I finally went in today to get ready for Monday and had the pleasure of opening Francisco's package. Your wrapping job put mine to shame. Thanks so much!!! By the way, does anyone happen to know Francisco's board name? Regards, Tim Weaver
  2. I'm glad you enjoyed the gifts. I'm a relative newbie when it comes to comics, and this is the first time I've participated in this event. It was a little stressful but a lot of fun picking out your presents. I'm already looking forward to next year. Merry Christmas!
  3. I agree that 12--especially when it has a decent color strike--is one of the better rivets. For me, the top tier is 1, 2, 8, 10, and 17 (when it has the red color strike). My second tier is 6, 12, 13, 14, 18, and 19. Both tiers are full of awesome books.
  4. I purchased a Planet 3 (Locker) from Asif. The book was very well packed and arrived in a timely manner. A very smooth transaction! I look forward to future deals.
  5. 1 and 2 have to be on the most coveted list (especially if the list is 15+ books), don't they?
  6. Of the Planets I was watching, the prices were as follows: #18 in 9.4 $14,000 #18 in 6.5 $4550 #44 in 9.6 $3250 #50 on 9.6 $3600 #55 in 7.5 $836
  7. Awesome pickups. The colors look really nice on the 2 in particular. I love a lot of the Planet covers, but 2 is my absolute favorite. Congrats!
  8. I’m down to 3 books to complete the run, and had hoped that finishing the run would be the cure. Now I find the disease is mutating—some of my lower grade books need upgrading and some of my higher grade books need to be replaced with better color strikes. Does this sickness ever end?
  9. Thanks. Jason put together a beautiful collection of books. I wasn't planning on a purchase of this magnitude, but opportunities to acquire a group of books like this don't come along very often. For a Planet collector, it doesn't get much better than this! And to think that a little over a year ago, I was a simple Silver collector working to finish off some Marvel runs. Then typhoid Rick (aka Ricksneatstuff) infected me with the Planet disease. Now I obsess over Planets, constantly seek them out, and spend what used to seem like ridiculous amounts of money on comic books .
  10. Purchased 5 significant books from Jason, including Planet 1. Excellent packing, fast shipping, and great communication. In short, everything went smoothly and I am very pleased with our transaction. I look forward to future dealings with Jason.
  11. Time to bump the Planet thread with this week's goodies. I can't imagine I will ever have a better mail call Many thanks to the boardie who parted with these beauties.
