  1. here are the last couple I got from Blissard and even included another First Series
  2. Here are a couple Roy Rogers from my recent batch from Blissard
  3. I will see your Magoo And raise you Two Mousketeers
  4. many of the upgrades I got from Bliss are file copies , so that is always nice I was very weak on Little LuLu's. Not so much after these. Still missing the First #74
  5. Well I got absolutely hosed on my entries in the March signature auctions My New Book of Comics #2 5.5 sold for barely half of either guide or the last heritage sale from just December. Never heard one word from my heritage rep, nor do I expect to. What can he say? " sorry we suck" Once they had my books last September their communications were basically non existent
  6. here are a few I recently picked up from Blissard. WHile none of these filled holes, they were all nice upgrades
  7. So is there any discussion of the actual movie in this thread? I saw it last weekend and enjoyed it. Going to see The Invisible Man in an hour. It is comic related as I have an invisible man comic
  8. Finished, at least for now, a redesign of my spreadsheet to be able to produce a concise 1 page want list that distinguishes missing from upgrades. Many thanks to kaculler for providing me with the Title Index so I could import the data While the new style is much more cluttered than the one I came up with a few years ago, I think that adding the title and and current grade is very valuable
  9. And my last book just closed at well under either value or even 10% the last comp for the book from 6 years ago
  10. ANd my Seven Seas Big Apple was 1/3rd less than the book sold for last year
  11. OUCH my New Book #2 closed at barely 1/2 what the same book sold for in Decmeber
  12. I had to go back and read what I actually wrote. Meant to say biggest of the 25 lots I consigned through heritage, and the biggest sale of a book for me in my 55 years as a reader/collector/part-time dealer/investor/four color collector in comic books. Got a few other Early golden age books closing tomorrow like New Book of Comics #2
  13. For the first time ever I watched the live streaming of the Thursday session It was fun seeing several of the books increase 5 fold in the 2 minutes it took. I sold the biggest lot in that session Was both happy and disappointed for the Highest graded Special Edition #1 to reach auction in well over a decade to only jump from 3100 to 3700. To me that is a big book. Could not even imagine paying/owning a 50K book
  14. Updating my spreadsheets to track all the new books since last year. I realized that upping my average grade to a 5.0 is going to be the most difficult of my 2020 goals Since I have about 1250 books, increasing the average grade by even .1 would take an additional 125 "points" which translates to replacing 25 at 2.5 with 7.5's Making it even harder I am focusing on adding books that are either First Series or under 100 which are usually going to below my current 4.6 average grade Here are two of my most recent additions/upgrades from MCS
  15. Hulk closed at 2001. nipping the other bidder who was at 2000 The 4 books I bought as an investment back about 15 years ago are closing this week starting off with the Special Edition #1 TOMORROW. This is the nicest copy of the first book devoted to Captain Marvel in well over a decade During that closing I will likely be at the Retina specialist getting a pelet inserted into my EYE via needle. Hoping to stop the diabetic retinopathy Remember if you win one of my books I will purchase some of your FOUR COLORS
