  1. ok, second try - my first post was deleted by mods because of a new rule that has been created since the last time I sold something here. $770 for X-men #1 in Good minus SOLD First :takeit: gets itI picked up an x-men #1 at a local pawn shop last week (I traded some beer and coca-cola signs for it)The condition looks a bit below GOOD (see photos) and it looks nice when bagged and boarded. It is complete with all the pages. Defects include:1. cover completely detached2. top staple is missing, but bottom staple is there3. centerfold page is loose4. paper loss on the cover around the staplesI have been out of the comic market market for a few years, so I looked up some completed sales on ebay to get an idea on pricing.I saw 6 successful auctions for copies a bit worse than mine, the auction prices ranged from $620 to $817I saw a copy similar to mine sell for $850 on ebay, so I am looking to get $850 less the $80 in fees that I would have to pay to ebay. So my price is $770Buyer pays shipping and insurance and tracking. I did a lot of sales on this board a few years ago, so here is a KUDOS LINK to the largest sale I did, a $2500 money order sale I did on a golden age comic (at bottom of kudos page) xmen_1_02.jpg

  4. You cannot boil down Jordan in statistics. That's all I will say. I never said he was the best a this or that, I only said after he left the NBA, I stopped watching.






    This is correct.


    In the 1990's there were people that NEVER watched basketball but they would watch Jordan.


    He was bigger than the game.


    He also took athletes pitching products to new heights (for better or for worse)



  5. CLEVELAND -- When Shaquille O'Neal walked into Quicken Loans Arena, past the security checkpoint, through the loading dock and past the visitors locker room with a "Magic" decal magnetically affixed to the large steel door, there was a frown on his face.


    He arrived for his latest game against the Magic and his uncomfortable counterpart -- and, whether he likes it or not, his heir -- with some fresh wounds.


    O'Neal admits the club scene in Cleveland is rather tame, and says that living way out in the suburbs and in Greater Cleveland's often smothering snow belt keeps him in on most cold winter nights. He's been watching a lot of TV, a lot of "SportsCenter" in fact, and he couldn't have missed Dwight Howard's latest Superman imitation.


    Howard plays Clark Kent, who comes to check on Lois Lane stand-in Hannah Storm after she's just been saved from an office fire by Superman. "This is SportsCenter," the ad says. This is also what fuels O'Neal's apparent contempt for the young man who plays in his old city at his old position and uses his superhero persona.


    "Superman my a--," O'Neal said after the game, releasing the statement like he'd been waiting to say it for months and couldn't hold it in anymore.


    When the game began -- a contest that ended with the Cavs' 13th consecutive win, and second this season over Orlando -- O'Neal felt teammates coming to double-team Howard, and his anger boiled over.


    The first time Howard got the ball, he made a standard move, hopping to the middle of the lane and setting up to shoot over his left shoulder. Only O'Neal hacked him for no reason and picked up a needless foul, but it did send a message. Before long, the two were elbowing and shoving.


    Toward the end of the game, they were at it again. Each had five fouls and the game was on the line; the score was tied, with lots of the focus on the two big men around the basket. But the finish belonged to O'Neal.


    He had a dunk and a layup on Howard and pulled down three key defensive rebounds. Howard went scoreless over the final 7½ minutes and a close game turned lopsided. Some of it was because the Magic, as they tend to do when they lose, forgot about Howard and didn't feed him the ball. And some of it was because O'Neal refused to allow Howard to get position and refused to accept help to do so.


    Howard had 19 points and 11 rebounds in just 31 minutes. O'Neal had just 10 and six in less than 20 minutes, but O'Neal clearly felt it was one-sided.


    When the locker room opened, O'Neal was well-dressed and waiting. He had a plane ready to take him to Dallas, where he won't be an All-Star like Howard but instead will be a party host and a fan. But the jet could wait and so could a question about the Cavs' Black Heritage Celebration this night. He shooed the question away.





    When I was coming up and there was Pat Ewing and Hakeem [Olajuwon], I never doubled anybody. You tell me who the real Superman is.


    ” -- Cavs center Shaquille O'Neal


    All season he's held his tongue. Repeating quotes about accepting a sidekick role to LeBron James and just wanting to be a role player, often referring to himself as a "tender 38," when that birthday hasn't even arrived yet. But this time he was ready to be the old Shaq and do it at Howard's expense, apparently for liking the same superhero and playing the same position in the same town where O'Neal started.


    "When I was coming up and there was Pat Ewing and Hakeem [Olajuwon], I never doubled anybody," O'Neal said. "You tell me who the real Superman is."


    Then more he talked, the more venom he released, a soothing of his ego and a return to his years of waging psychological warfare on his opponents in the media. He even started quoting Jay-Z.


    "Don't compare me to nobody. I'd rather not be mentioned, I'm offended," O'Neal said.


    When O'Neal was introduced in Cleveland back in July, three different times he said the Cavs would not be double-teaming centers. Once he said it to Cavs coach Mike Brown's face, creating some discomfort on the stage.


    What O'Neal really meant was not double-teaming Howard, which O'Neal saw the Cavs do from a courtside seat in the Eastern Conference finals in Orlando. The Cavs haven't this season, and they're now 2-0 against the Magic.


    There's pride that it is working and pride that the Magic don't play him the same way, a green light to take more shots at Howard, the reigning Defensive Player of the Year.


    "Don't let them double-team me and make it a him versus me thing," O'Neal said. "Been doing it 18 years straight. Hakeem, Ewing, Rik Smits, [Tim] Duncan, [David] Robinson, the best of the best, straight up. I never doubled nobody. Nor have I ever asked for a double-team. If want to bang and push, let's bang and push. You're all giving away [superman] titles, it's crazy."


    There is indeed some craziness. It probably will be renewed a week from Sunday when the Cavs travel to Orlando for another meeting. A chance for O'Neal's personal rivalry to be restoked, whether Howard acknowledges it or not.


    His teammates know; they've seen the commercials, too.


    "The whole Superman thing kind of bothers him," James said with a smirk, purposely understating the situation. "That's definitely his nickname, and the fact that everybody kind of gave Dwight his name kind of bothers him a little bit."

  6. That collection sold for substantially less...though still a serious amount....than the appraisal.





    China economy has slowed down though (as has the rest of the world) so maybe this was a factor.


    Also sometimes the roadshow appraisers quote in terms of the value it would sell for in a shop, which tends to be higher than at auction.







    For the last year I have been buying pulp mags with “damsels in distress” covers, hot girls, good girl art, bad girl art, etc.


    But they are taking me away from my main focus of collecting Batman. :cloud9:


    So I am going to sell the mags. I am offering a lot of 105 mags here. They are from the 1930’s to the mid-1960’s.


    I will first offer them in one giant lot.


    If they do not sell as a lot, then I would be willing to sell specific issues or smaller groups of mags. So if you want some of my mags, but don’t want to buy all of them, then send me a PM so I know that you are interested.


    I will also consider trading the whole lot for quality low grade raw golden age books, or high grade pre-1980 CGC slabs.


    My price for all 105 pulp mags is $1500 including shipping and insurance within USA.


    That's the paypal personal price, if using regular paypal please add 3%


    First person to post :takeit: gets all 105 mags.


    If you are brand new to the boards then please pay by check or money order.


    Time payments are available, just give me a small down payment and I will hold them for you.


    I have plenty of kudos posted, if that matters to you.




    I have taken multiple photos of almost every pulp mag (except for a few late additions). You can download a ZIP file with all the photos at this





    Here are just some of the many great 105 mags you will receive:






















  8. Usually Canadian banks have a US partner/subsidiary that the funds are actually drawn on, like when I buy a US MO at TD Bank, I think it's actually drawn on Chase Manhattan, so those kind shouldn't be charged.


    This is correct info.


    If you get a US funds money order or draft in Canada make sure there is a US bank's name also somewhere on it. That means it clears inside the USA, and there will not be a problem cashing it.
