  1. I just saw the promo for the 2nd series and I have to go back and rewatch the 1st series. Just a fantastic series with so much potential to get even bigger this year.
  2. But seriously - thanks for the spelling correction. I kept messing up that word so bad that autocorrect didn't come to my aid.
  3. The thread had some potential to make people think about the current rules but I think the only outcome was to destroy the perception of the OP. It’s been awhile since a newb has come across with the right mixture of cocky and distain to make my gag reflex kick in.
  4. We have watched up to episode 6 and it’s a good show for us. Good drama but also some good action at times. CGI does look pretty bad at points but overall a good show to watch during downtime.
  5. What would be the intent of said “thread crapping”? Alert newb buyers? Prevent spam listings? Inform ignorant sellers? The problem I see is how slippery the slope is when it comes to comments in a sales thread. We all would be ok with commenting on a thread selling a common $50 book for $1,0000. But then someone would say something about a great presenting, ultra hot book that is currently $200 but could explode up to $400 any minute that the seller wants to sell for $300. It’s far easier to just outlaw the discussions in a thread and require all the discussions be via PM.
  6. I went to the antique store yesterday and bought another 4 long boxes of books - last trip of the year. I won't bore you with pictures this time since there would be a lot of pictures of stacks of copies. Best score was a mid grade Avengers 48 that got mixed into the $18 books. My first copy since the price exploded. My favorite grab was a nice high grade set of Conan 6 - 22 that I may get graded. Love me some early Conan issues.
  7. Does every new book have a 1st appearance at this point?
  8. Stay out of the modern thread and the amount of hot books you see drops off substantially. Problem solved!
  9. I think it's completely overblow in the current market. 50% hit to price because of some tiny color touches and a bit of glue? I obviously don't like it when people try to do restoration without disclosure but a book with a tiny bit of restoration should not be 50 - 70% off the price of an untouched book.
  10. I knew we had a new beanie baby on our hands when a couple local dealers where telling me they sell twice as much Pops as they do comics at local Cons. They specialize in the limited edition Pops and people were clambering over each other to get the rare glow in the dark version or whatever. Most of them are pretty ugly. Seems like someone is mixing stuff together in the classic beanie baby craze cookbook to me.
  11. I'd say yes - Babe Ruth cards still sell. Inverted stamps still sell. Heck - I'd think the key beanie babies may still sell. The true key books should do very well over the next 25 years - the rest of the stuff I'm more worried about.
  12. Yep - see them now. I just got excited and started searching for books I wanted and skipped over the banner and the links. The book I bought outside the spin a deal section was only a $25 book so it's good. It is addictive especially when you haven't gotten a big discount - the next one will definitely get it!
