  1. Whenever I'm out searching for comics, I find that the methods that stir the most anticipation inside of me are whenever I go to garage sales, estate sales, flea markets or antique malls. You just never know what you're going to come across at one of these or at what price. I find comics other ways (eBay, the boards, online auctions, etc.) but my anticipation always seems to be higher with the old manual foot search methods. So post all of your great garage sale/estate sale/flea market/antique mall finds here. Doesn't have to be a comic either. It could be magazines, toys, posters or anything else you deem appropriate but try to keep it comic related if possible. One of the best finds I ever had was in Wisconsin on my way to a programming class in Minnesota a few years ago. About half-way there I stopped at an antique mall which was 3 levels high. Looked and looked and found nothing on the first 2 levels. Got to the 3rd level, made a left turn and looked down on the floor to my left. I just about had a heart attack. There sitting on the floor was an Exciting Comics #49 and an Adventure Comics #62. And what was the price on them? How about a nice low 10 bucks each? Needless to say, I snatched them up as faster than the Flash. I ended up selling both of them but made a nice healthy profit on each. I'll start it out with some comics and a lunch box. Picked up the first comic at a garage sale and the rest from a local antique mall. The lunch box came from another garage sale and I paid a whopping 50 cents for it.
  2. Well, I moved earlier in the year and had to leave my old comic room behind. It was hard... until I started to make plans for the new one!!! This is my comic lounge... I call it "Johnny G's Spot" Here we have the view from the doorway coming into the room. The framed portfolios on the wall are an autographed Writson Aparitions set and a few selected Starlin pieces. The 3 5x7's are some cool laser thingamajigs I purchased at last years ECCC. Next we have a shot of the comics themselves. There are multiple HC Books on artists as well as collected works. I have tons of other stuff to sort through and make adjustments where needed. This is my "lounge" the bulk of my books are in 2 5x10 storage lockers locked up tight! I also have an "overflow" room downstairs.... ahhhh the joys of being single again! Here we have a view from my reading position. The 2 sketches are Neal Adams' Black Canary and Deadman. I recently purchased the AF15 3-d cover (quite cool). Lastly, the closet... if I showed you what was in it, I'd have to snuff you out!!! I've got Tony Montana watching over things up above it... "So, you wanna play rough eh? OK... just not in here" And that folks is my little piece of heaven I am debating hanging McFarlane figures around the ceiling.... I think it may be overkill. I have 2 great Frazetta pieces that are currently being framed... they are going into the guest/overflow room. My good friend CrowsQB (boardie) will be the first to hang with me in it tomorrow. We plan on having a comic themed movie day I am sure he is also planning on harassing me to sell some books to him! Do you have a set-up? Show us what you've got! I know there have beem threads on this in the past... but who cares! I think we have all heard enough about CA #25... if there can be 20 threads on that, why not a few on this? John
  3. We need a sticky for a thread like this, what do you say Mods? I really like TWIYC Thread, but I think it would be cool to post some, doesn't have to be all, books you got back from your submission. Highs or lows, doesn't matter. From GA to MA. Books that you are pleased with as well as books that make you after seeing the grade received.
  4. Not a bad one for the CC collection. Raw GL/GA 76 IF 14 ASM 34 n 40 WNB 32-possible another WBN 32 by the end of the week Marvel Spotlight 2 CGC TOD 1 8.5
  5. When I first head this term I literally said, "Huh"... then it made sense... The stuff is addictive. I know that there are a few hardcore collectors on these boards and some very knowledgable people in this area. So share what you want, what you picked up and discuss anything you find interesting.
  6. New members join the CGC boards everyday, but some just lurk around without saying too much. The point of this thread is to give a heartfelt welcoming, and encourage our new boardies to introduce themselves and say hi. Hopefully, with your time spent here, you will learn some things, make some friends, and ultimately, enjoy yourselves. (thumbs u I'll start. I'm Andy. I love DC war comics, but have branched out into every which direction you can think of. Right now, I'm right into Golden Age books and classic covers. Don't be afraid to ask any questions. That's how you're going to learn. We do, however, have a search engine, and some people may end up asking you to use it. To save yourself a potential smidgen of ridicule, you could consider trying that first. So, without taking up any more of your valuable time, I'll step back from the podium and pass the microphone to you. Welcome to the boards, my friends!
  7. So I wake up this morning to some awesome personal sketches by alecholland. I see these great contributions from time to time, and always felt there should be a permanent ongoing thread for this type of work. So hopefully budding artists, pros, and amateurs alike can put up some of their goodness here. Here's something I slapped together a while back (had to join together parts, since scanner was too small).
  8. Just started my statue collection not long ago with the Joker Killing Joke statue, finally added a Batman statue to go along with him. Joker is pleased. Hope to add some cool Marvel statues to the collection sometime in the future.
  9. Here, here Lets post some AMAZING eBay wins in here... http://www.ebay.com/itm/322025735380?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT I guess thats what happens when you try to be cool and give a title a nickname.. You lose points on search terms
  10. What are you guys and gals reading right now, besides comic books? I know comics helped instill a love for reading in me and it's still a major focus in my life today. For me.... "Jack the Ripper, Case Closed" by Patricia Cornwell, "The Elegant Universe" by Brian Greene, Collected Short Stories by H.P. Lovecraft, "Souls on Fire" by Elie Weisel, "The Nature of Space and Time" by Hawkins and Penrose, and two biographies about AC / DC and Led Zeppelin. They're all great. GOD BLESS... -jimbo(a friend of jesus) (thumbs u
  11. Double Covers are rare and hard to find and most times bring $$$$ to the table. How many double covers do you have, how many are graded, post scans for all to see here mine... WEBHEAD
  12. Seeing that this question seems to show up in every single "what supplies should I be using?"-thread on these boards, I figured it was about time to show the visual differences between the various sizes of E Gerber mylar that can be purchased from board member Hotflips or E Gerber themselves. A couple of notes: - Mylites, Mylites2 and Archives are the same size across product numbers, the only difference between them is the weight (Mylites2 are twice the thickness of Mylites, Archives are twice the thickness of Mylites2) and the fact that the Archives are open at the top & have a 7/8" flap that cannot be folded over. - For this guide I'll be focusing on the 5 primary comic book sizes: Current (700), Standard (725), Silver/Gold (775), Gold (800), and Super Gold (825). The number in parantheses refers to the width of the product group - for instance all Gold-sized Mylites, Mylites2, and Archives are 8" wide. The height amongst these product groups never changes, however - it's always 10.5". - Picking out half-backs or full-backs for these mylars is easy - simply choose a half-back or full-back one size smaller than the mylar itself. For instance, the 700 half-back or full-back fits inside the 725 mylar. - I picked three random books to show inside the mylars: a Sandman #8 (modern book), a Daredevil #64 (silver age book), and a Black Terror #11 (golden age book), so feel free to ignore whatever doesn't apply to your specific collecting focus. - Yes, it annoys me as well that it's "Mylites2s" instead of "Mylite2s", but that's just how it is. - (Current) 700M2 and (Standard) 725M2 mylars are the only two sizes that will fit in a regular comic book box and a drawerbox - for all other sizes, you'll need to either use the E Gerber acid-free comic book boxes (which are wider than a regular comic book box), Magazine-sized boxes or CGC-sized boxes. Anyway ... on with the show - all scans have been cropped & resized to the same aspect ratio, so the mylar sizing differences should be obvious across the images. --------------------------------------- Modern book inside a Mylites2: For a modern book, my preferred size is the (Standard) 725M2 - it doesn't fit too tight, and can be used for BA and SA books as well. Stay clear of the (Current) 700M2 size - it's way too small for anything other than books printed within the last 10-15 years, and it just doesn't make sense to spend money on a mylar that only fits one very specific type of book. Modern book in Mylites2 (Current) 700M2 Modern book in Mylites2 (Standard) 725M2 Modern book in Mylites2 (Silver/Gold) 775M2 Modern book in Mylites2 (Gold) 800M2 Modern book in Mylites2 (Super Gold) 825M2 --------------------------------------- SA book inside a Mylites2: In a pinch, the SA book will fit inside a (Standard) 725M2 mylar, but I much prefer the larger sizes. A SA book will not fit inside a (Current) 700M2 mylar. SA book in Mylites2 (Standard) 725M2 SA book in Mylites2 (Silver/Gold) 775M2 SA book in Mylites2 (Gold) 800M2 SA book in Mylites2 (Super Gold) 825M2 --------------------------------------- GA book inside a Mylites2: My favorite here is the (Super Gold) 825M2 mylar - it takes oversize indies (like Cerebus #1) as well. A GA book will not fit inside anything smaller than a (Silver/Gold) 775M2 mylar, and even that feels a bit too tight for my liking. GA book in Mylites2 (Silver/Gold) 775M2 GA book in Mylites2 (Gold) 800M2 GA book in Mylites2 (Super Gold) 825M2 --------------------------------------- Modern book inside an Archive: Archives are open at the top, so make sure you stock up on E Gerber's grey acid-free boxes to store them in - I personally don't use Archives by themselves at all, only in combination with a Mylite or Mylite2 (the popular double-bagging combo). Seeing that Archives are a fair bit thicker than Mylites2 (which translates to a tighter fit around the book), you have to be much more careful sliding the books in & out - the reason I'm not attaching a scan of the (Current) 700R size below is because I was worried I'd damage my modern book trying to get it in there. Even the (Standard) 725R size seems too tight here because of the increased thickness. Modern book in Archive (Standard) 725R Modern book in Archive (Silver/Gold) 775R Modern book in Archive (Gold) 800R Modern book in Archive (Super Gold) 825R --------------------------------------- SA book inside an Archive: The SA book barely fits inside the (Standard) 725R mylar - I wouldn't recommend using it like this. SA book in Archive (Standard) 725R SA book in Archive (Silver/Gold) 775R SA book in Archive (Gold) 800R SA book in Archive (Super Gold) 825R --------------------------------------- GA book inside an Archive: The GA book barely fits inside the (Silver/Gold) 775R mylar - just like with the Mylites2, I much prefer the versatile (Super Gold) 825R size here. GA book in Archive (Silver/Gold) 775R GA book in Archive (Gold) 800R GA book in Archive (Super Gold) 825R --------------------------------------- Combos For more expensive books in my collection, I bust out the double-bagging Mylite+Archive or Mylites2+Archive combos - one combo for modern books, one combo for SA books. I've found that when you're doing combos there's really no need to use full-backs - half-backs will do just fine because you're doubling up the bag (you put one half-back in the inner bag next to the book, and one half-back in the outer bag for support). I also like using Mylites instead of Mylites2 - I find the Mylites too flimsy to use by themselves, but inside an Archive they work great. Of the SA combos below, my favorite is the one that uses the Mylites2 (Gold) 800M2 and the Archive (Super Gold) 825R. A tip: When you're using a combo, put the book inside the Mylite or Mylites2 with the flap at the bottom of the book - it makes it a lot easier to slide it in & out of the Archive. Modern book in Mylites2 (Standard) 725M2, which is then placed inside an Archive (Silver/Gold) 775R SA book in Mylites2 (Silver/Gold) 775M2, which is then placed inside an Archive (Gold) 800R SA book in Mylites2 (Silver/Gold) 775M2, which is then placed inside an Archive (Super Gold) 825R SA book in Mylites2 (Gold) 800M2, which is then placed inside an Archive (Super Gold) 825R --------------------------------------- CGC Bags For CGC slabs you have a couple of different options: Mylites2 (Legal Size) 914M2 fit a slab pretty well and look amazing, but are relatively pricey. Transplant also mentioned that due to their size & stiffness when put in a regular CGC box, they "make the box bow out some". He suggested using CGC Magazine-sized boxes instead. E Gerber, unfortunately, doesn't carry Mylites in the Legal Size, but Bill Cole Enterprises have 1 mil Mylar Arklites that are sized specifically for CGC slabs. Bill Cole & E Gerber share the same Mylar patent, so Arklites are completely identical to Mylites. Bill Cole products are horribly overpriced, though, so 50 CGC 1 mil Arklites actually cost more than 50 Legal Size Mylites2 (even though the Mylites2 are twice as thick). A lot of board members swear by the Hotflips CGC Flip-n-stick bags which are clear polybags with a reseable flap. Another option would be the Bags Unlimited resealable CGC bags which are very similar to the Hotflips Flip-n-stick bags; it seems like the Hotflips bags are clearer & cheaper, though.
  13. Anyone else collect these? Not talking about trade paperbacks or TPBs, but the 4 x 7 inch (apx.) books. Post 'em if you've got 'em!
  14. Instructions: Decide what/who wins. Then post your own comics-related face-off. You can elaborate on why you chose the winner - if you'd like.

  15. Hi all, I have been looking for a comic spinner rack for my home / collection and I am wondering if such a thing exists that will hold golden age and silver age books? The racks I have seen are all modern size only.
  16. I happened to check out the FS thread this morning and saw the Micronauts 9.8W for sale...which immediately brought back flooding memories of this... I remember desperately asking Santa for the Micronauts Battle Cruiser...I wanted it so badly...think my parents had to run all over looking for it, but there it was Christmas morning...and it was KICK AZZ! I loved this thing...especially the ship could fire the two side rockets and then had two smaller firing rockets that you could attach to the tail. Plus it was motorized...this was awsome...I played with it for years...although I did loose if for some time. You could pry off the orange heads of the rockets and essential fire the "sticks" --- they flew much faster and farther (essentially you could use the rocket launchers as hand guns ...all until I decided to shoot my younger brother...mom took 'em away for a while Anyway, this was the best toy I ever had...what say you....PS anyone else have this beast!!!!!
  17. http://www.cgcdata.com/cgc/images/cgclabeltypes.png I realize most of us lived it, so we don't need a reference... but I also added the dates of usage, which most people can't remember off the top of their heads.
  18. Was talking to porcupine tonight and he mentioned how long he'd been here and how important this place has been to him. Got me to thinking about how long I've hung out here and how it's changed the hobby for me. I First came here to learn about CGC books. Had none and had never seen one except in pictures. I didn't know any other collectors, rarely spent more than $200 on a book, hell rarely spent more than $50 on a book. I didn't know about pedigree books aside from the Mile Highs, pressing, grading standards, auction sites outside ebay, or restoration. Looking back it's startling to realize just how important this place has been to me and how much it's changed the hobby for me. I've talked to a lot of great people, met quite a few in person, bought some wonderful books, expanded my budget, learned so so much and overall found the hobby more rewarding. Thanks CGC.
