  1. you missed the neal adams avengers 96 page that tanked on comic link!
  2. yes, some really good portfolios from sqp- the Black Widow by Gulacy, 2 really good Marvel Team Ups, the Michael Golden Doctor Strange, the Starlin Metamorphosis Odyssey............... there is a really nice one by Frank Brunner called "Stormbringer, the world of Elric"............
  3. it is the Jack Kirby Masterworks, Carlo.
  4. albert moy owns (or owned) the original art to the 1977 card. it is on his CAF gallery. BWS sent me and autographed that first card in 2002 when i purchased some art from him.
  5. for the material that i follow- the stronger, more desirable pieces, things like the byrne ff page, the buscema ff 112 pages, etc..... i was very surprised at the final hammer for the j g jones black widow cover. everything else was kind of blah. it was a buyer's market for sure. could be that what gene says, that the market has cooled for non-A material.
  6. I agree with you others. While i have not bought from tom in a long time, i did pick up many things from him early on. he did business the right way, in a friendly, professional matter and was quick to reply to questions. i wish him the best.
  7. wow, what a great job on that! congratulations on owning a nice book!
  8. Hi folks- opinions on this would be appreciated- I know that there is what appears to be a chip in the upper left corner, I know that this would benefit from being cleaned- any other comments?
  9. no comment from paypal on how an 11 x 17 piece of art morphed into 8.5 x 11?
  10. As far as dealing with the auction houses themselves, that has gone quite well. Every one has been very professional and helpful and flexible with me so no complaints there. As for the actual auctions themselves, that is another story. While it can be debated as to the quality of the material I have submitted to them, in my mind, in general, the pieces have all been at least respectable and probably deserved better fates. If I was not able to negotiate waiving the BP with heritage, I would really get hammered but even with that, my results, in my mind, are at least 15-20% below expectation, in general. I have also done much better in private deals. I am constantly amazed at the prices some pieces get (which mine don't)
  11. the starlin cosmic piece went from nowhere to somewhere in a hurry!
  12. I guess it tells you that you should always think about a reserve on something that is not slam dunk A-material. That was a great piece and deserved a better fate................... that poor guy probably is devastated but HA got their cut so they moved on..................
