  1. I’m looking forward to seeing what other newsstands are in this lot. I bought it for a few reasons. The first being the 1st Appearance of Supergirl in #8. Secondly Michael Turner and $12 including shipping. I’ll post any other newsstands when I receive them. As well picked up another New X-Men #134. I believe it’s my 8th copy of that particular newsstand.
  2. I have a similar situation that happened to me within the last week. I pocket paid for an order before being invoiced by the seller. I can’t tell you how it possibly happened or the luck involved. It was 3 separate screens that I went through in my pocket to complete the transaction. So if someone comes to you with one of those stories about a kid, pet, pocket order give them the benefit of the doubt. Because it can and does happen.
  3. You need to block him. I knew I wasn’t getting paid when he messaged me about a book he bought from someone else. Like he copied and pasted to save time when sending messages to all the sellers he stiffed.
  4. Very Nice!! I’ve run across a few but their either not a high enough grade or to expensive. So as of yet I’ve not picked up a copy.
  5. @Motor City RobSo exactly what are you disagreeing with? I said the same thing as you using different words.
  6. Yeah I definitely wouldn’t send it back after having it graded and finding out it was trimmed. Partial refund or store credit would be the only choices.
  7. To be honest a fair amount of these posts telling people to block someone need more information. Not pointing out anyone specifically but typing in a username and brief description isn’t enough to block someone. At least for me it isn’t. I’d need to see copies of messages before blocking anyone. Not doubting anyone but we’re only getting one side of the story. I also think if you’re going to call someone out, by username, real name, address and phone numbers they should be invited to the forum to give their side. Obviously unpaid items don’t need a ton of info unless coupled with threats and inappropriate behavior.

  9. Some non newsstand bargains I found online. Ended up being 72 cents each shipping included.
  10. I haven’t stopped collecting but just haven’t been posting everything. It really just depends on the sellers pics, as that’s what I use to post them. These were all $1 each and any stickers are on the bags. If you don’t know I love the late Marvel Newsstands. However I do pick up the occasional DC book as well. Nothing major that I know of.
  11. I had heard about this from a potential eBay buyer a few months ago. They had messaged me to check ads in the books as that was an indicator of it being a variant. They even took some time to explain it to me. It’s not of much interest to me as I’m more into Post 2000 Marvel Newsstands. I will pickup DC’s as well but I’m more picky and try to only get keys/firsts.
  12. Exactly!! They used different cheaper paper in the Image Newsstands as well. At least all of mine do.
  13. From what I’ve read they got lazy or cheap and stopped changing out the plates during the printing process. I’m not sure when they stopped putting the actual title there. I see a lot of people listing them as errors which they aren’t to my knowledge.
