  1. Grab bags are for bored suckers. A seller doesn't put up a grab bag and pack them full of books they know they can sell. You may get an ok deal of a bunch of hard to sell left over books but even that is a stretch with most e-bay grab bags. Just avoid them.
  2. And here I thought the magazines would take the longest: Fast Track Value - Received 11/11/19 Magazine Economy - Received 11/11/19 - Scheduled for Grading 11/18/19 Magazine Modern - Received 11/11/19 Reholder - Received 11/11/19, Grading QA/QC 11/13/19, Shipped 11/14/19 Modern Slow Boat Prescreen - Received 11/11/19
  3. I find their packing for small batches (2 or 3 books) to be terrible. I've had slabs arrive cracked - I've had slabs with weird bubble scuff marks all over the front. I've had almost no issues with larger (20-25 slabs) orders where they are able to use the large boxes padded with cardboard. Maybe they could look into how they ship the smaller packages.
  4. If Action 1's cover was taken I'd have to go with a classic Zeck cover. Reminds me of when i first started reading books.
  5. Could be - I think I got the gold and silver variants mixed up. The number of copies seem to be slowing down but I do see a large uptick on the Coyote book so it must all be related to the signing.
  6. I get the vibe he was happy about his first sub
  7. That didn't take long at all. The reholder books were shipped out this morning.

  8. ugh - I'm so conflicted with this next season. i dearly miss my Dr. Who fix but I this despised the previous season. So preachy and written with a political slant rather then the sci-fi popcorn shows I like. My wife and her female friends loved the last season but i've yet to find a old school fan who didn't do more then tolerate it.
  9. Not sure about slabbed copies but I'm seeing batches of 10 copies selling for $200 (thought this was still a $5 book) and quite a few $20 copies sold yesterday. None were newsstand copies.
  10. What the heck is going on with Spidey 1 (McFarlane)?? The gold variant seems to be flying off the shelves.
  11. But how will the increase in price be qualtified - the book will eventually be sold off or it stinks of a ponzi scheme.
  12. So many issues with this concept. Take the AF 15 for example - who set the $125,000 price tag? A 7.5 just sold for $120k and it had Off-White pages. So a Cream 7.0 would be worth what - $90K. So the owner of this book puts it up on the site and pockets the $125k and then the investors only have a $90K book to show for it. And then the auction house takes 10% so the book is basically worth $80K and investors ponied up $125K for the privilege of owning a piece of a key book. It will be awhile for that book to reach $140K so that the investors will even get their money back when it goes up for sale. So much risk and so little reward it's just foolish.
