  1. PGM: X-Men # !

    Get it out of the bag ASAP. The bag is far too small. Looks like you're trying to fit a Silver Age comic into a current bag. Don't leave it in that bag. Unless you want to press the ripples out later.
  2. "Definitive" List of Bronze Age Marvel Keys

    On the DC list?
  3. AF15 Low grade

    I may be wrong, but I think the previous owner who had it graded probably already considered a press prior to submitting, especially with a book of that significance.
  4. Are you referring to the strip of the back cover showing in front? It's called a miswrap. It shouldn't affect the technical grade, because CGC considers it production related.
  5. I don't think you'll be able to get those people to step into a comic shop, no matter how well-lit, clean, and organized your shop is. Some people are perfectly content to order TPBs off Amazon or order digital. A lot of readers do not enjoy the experience of going to a shop like most of us. The internet has changed the way a lot of people get their comic fix. All you can do is try to make the experience enjoyable for those that are likely to go to a shop.
  6. Are the Boomers cashing out?

    I'm not looking to sell everything, but most of what I've accumulated. I intend to keep what I really want. Most of what I have I have no emotional attachment to. Even then, I have multiples of a lot of issues. How much do I really need? I'm a collector, not a dealer. I don't need the "stock." I've been a hoarder. Up to now, with the years creeping up on me, I haven't been willing to let go. It's time.
  7. Are the Boomers cashing out?

    But I'll have the memories. I have over 14,000 comics. I intend to keep just a few hundred. I can't see paying for storage for things I no longer need or want.
  8. Are the Boomers cashing out?

    As a Baby Boomer, I’m ready to cash out. Maybe I’m being naïve, but comic movies have nothing to do with my desire to sell off most of my collection. I don’t care whether or not comic movies will continue to make money. Yes, I understand that comic movies may affect the value of some comics. But at this point, it really doesn’t matter. Of course I will keep those few comics that are near and dear to my heart, but I’m ready to let most of them go. It’s time for me to let go. It’s certainly not because I think comic movies will or will not continue to be as popular as they are now. Bottom line-I’m ready to cash out because I’m getting older.
  9. Is this place deader than ever?

    Can't be too dead if this thread is 77 pages.
  10. Gun pointing atcha covers

    But mine's bigger.

  12. Craigslist Rant

    It's happened to me. And the opposite is true also. I have bought comics from sellers that made prior arrangements for somebody to come take a look. My money is as good as anybody else's. If I show up with the money first, why wouldn't the seller take it? Guaranteed money on the spot as opposed to the chance the other person doesn't show up or doesn't have the money. It sucks, but that's way it goes sometimes.
  13. Exactly. On paper it looks great. The practicality of having to dispose so much is not. Time and money tied up may not be good to your cash flow.
