  1. If you like old funny books it's the place to be. I think you have to be a bit more wary of scammers than the boards but there is a big community of good people.
  2. I think message boards are a slightly antiquated medium. The IG comic collecting community might account for some of the decline. That community is very active.
  3. Don't quote me but I have a vague recollection that it had been destroyed in a fire.** **the possibility that I am totally wrong is very high.
  4. Wow! What a coup for Comic Connect. It will be interesting to see where this one lands! https://www.tmz.com/2020/10/13/first-punisher-cover-hits-auction-block-valued-2-million/
  5. What a thread! Wished I hadn't missed it. Very cool stuff!!!!!!
  6. I think it effects the price some. But you get a return for taking the risk of doing the CT removal and getting the blue label. This isn't as recognisable a book but it lends some credence to this point. Slight ct on a 9.0 Strange Suspense Stories 19 originally sold for $3120. 10 months later the same book sells in the same venue as an 8.5 blue for $11,400. https://comics.ha.com/itm/golden-age-1938-1955-/strange-suspense-stories-19-charlton-1954-cgc-apparent-vf-nm-90-slight-b-1-off-white-to-white-pages/a/7211-95264.s?ic4=GalleryView-ShortDescription-071515 https://comics.ha.com/itm/golden-age-1938-1955-/strange-suspense-stories-19-charlton-1954-cgc-vf-85-off-white-to-white-pages/a/7231-92073.s?ic4=GalleryView-ShortDescription-071515
  7. I don't own either book but I much prefer 2, it seems to come up for sale less often and census is lower (62 for #1 vs 47 for #2).
  8. +1 I also thought it would do a bit better. But I guess 174k is nothing to sneeze at.
  9. Less than a week left and the Tracy highest graded bondage cover is currently at $12 which is less than it cost to get graded!!
  10. Working with Kenny is always a pleasure.
