i got this copy about 3 years ago right before it latest surge in value. bought it on ebay from a UK seller and used ebay escrow for payment. solid book with nice pages. spine wear and soiling on BC are its only real defects!

my records show i bought it in march of 2005.the escrow service i mentioned above was very nice although i had to eat all the fees of course and pay the "buy it now" price of $4226(not sure what is was in pounds) to get him to do it. After the shipping and escrow fees i have a grand total of $4531 invested in this book. I am very happy with this deal right now.

thanx guys. i haven't hardly looked at it in the last 4 years. i knew if i sold it though a day would come when i would regret it. i'll never own another copy this nice i'm sure as the price is just soaring on this book. Some day i may have to sell it but until then i think i can resist cashing out.

It was only a matter of time before someone was going to do this, once prices exploded. Seller is a boardie. It will be interesting to see how they do.

Didn't someone -- perhaps the same person -- sell a couple of pages on the boards a few weeks ago? Or did I see these pages on eBay earlier? hm

 

jgallo had some for sale here on the Boards, but if I'm not mistaken, none sold.

 

He did sell one of them--the 5th page slab--on eBay recently for 315.00 :whatthe: (BIN was 499.99). Don't know if it'll be any kind of a trend, but still a pretty incredible price.

I don't think it's right to tell people you are a serious comic book collector unless you can say you have one of these.

 

 

Not every serious comic book collector can afford one of these. :makepoint: Does not make you any less serious of a collector. I collected for 20 years before I owed one. I still loved the hobby during those 20 years and I was a pretty serious collector during that time. 2c

This will be my third time.

 

Feeling charmed

 

Don't expect to be moving this one on for a very long time. :banana:

 

I never didn't feel like a serious collector, even when I didn't have one.

 

They just keep going up....it's kinda painful

Mysterio, you posted a couple weeks back about an interest in the Library of Congress AF files. Check out page 46 of this thread for some links I posted then (years old, but still active links. I checked.) And further down the page, another pic of AF 15 original art contributed by another boardie.

Other than going to the first page and paging forward a few pages at a time, is there an easier way to get to page 46 on a thread that is 650 pages long?(under default posts per page settings)

The fastest way is to go to Topic Options, and choose threaded mode. That will list many more on the same page. It's not easy but it is much faster to do it that way.

Just go into the URL "readout" on your browser and replace the current page with the one you want and hit enter. i.e, replace 434 with 46 in the example below.
