    Collector is an understatement.

  2. This is the most generous OCD offer I have seen! I'll keep an eye out for you
  3. https://www.ebay.com/itm/164190854292 Let me know if you are interested
  4. I've sold some of my lessor books recently, and they have all gone to booze / wine. In other words, I drank all my comics during pandemic
  5. If anyone finds CGC 8.5 White Pages, @DST is willing to entertain as well, because he can then trade for 8.0 with another collector ..... wonder who that guy is Good luck
  6. Really enjoying the quick sales lately on the boards, hopefully this is another quick sale! For Sale: Amazing Spider-Man 344 CGC 9.8 *** First Appearance of Cletus Kasady (Carnage) *** Last sale was $215 on GPA, and GoCollect has this at $190 FMV. Asking: $160 + Exact Shipping (All Sales Final and No Returns) This item is located in Canada. PayPal or EMT (If in Canada) References available upon request
  7. I think during a downturn, everyone looks for value. It can be comics, gold, real estate, stocks, magic cards, you name it!! Heck, have you seen the value of sports cards lately??? Tons of cards have gone 10x in value! I'll agree with your last statement: "just don't spend beyond your means" ..... AMEN!
  8. To answer @Hollywood1892 , I like @theCapraAegagrus 's answer. You make the assumption that the value of comics never drop, and the method of transaction is fee-less / tax-less. Whenever someone like me buys from HA, CL, or even eBay, I am subject to taxes or customs. And don't forget about the ridiculous shipping prices I will have to endure. A $1000 comic that I buy off HA, might end up costing me $1200-$1300 after it is all said and done. GPA will record it as a $1000 sale. You really think I can sell my $1000 for $1300 the next month if I lose my job? Now lets expand that dollar amount to $10K or $100K books. Sorry, I don't want to play that game. I am also very adverse to risk. Having said that, before I make any comic purchase, I basically tell myself, if I can only get 50% of the value I paid, do I still want to purchase? If the answer is yes, then I will make the purchase To enjoy owning something I love! Additionally, if I see a nice book I have been looking for, and I really want it.... I'm still making purchases right now. I'm just more careful with my money these days.
  9. For some reason, I have the same thought. To some degree, I'm just nervous I'll lose my job the next day after I make a big purchase.
