Just saw the buyer of my copy decided to list it on eBay... Told me he was saving it for his newborn daughter... That lasted a month...

 

That's pretty shady. Was this a board member?

 

Doesn't do much on the boards... Mention him a few pages back

It's the same individual I was asking references for a few pages back; the person vouching for him was like, "He's not going to resell it".... It was 6k cash in hand... Anyhow he said he had a baby due the same day and it was a treasured gift he would pass down to her... It was a solid cash transaction but why all the fluff?!?

 

He sold you the story, whether or not he needed it to get the comic. His listing on the bay has a different story - buying a new house.

I checked periodically with anticipation... then now its listed... I'm happy I made a sale... just don't understand the pretense...

If it takes a story of hardship (or joy) to explain why someone wants a discount on an expensive comic book they want to hold for years, then the storyteller likely can't afford the book. People who can't afford expensive things have to give them back or sell them.

 

The story was always a clue to the outcome... by saying the opposite.

I hope someone flagged it as a fraudulent listing.

People who lie to others for their betterment really gets on my goat :mad:

I recently bought a #1 2nd print and two # 2's. I'm curious about the later books. How glossy is the cover on the counterfeit?

Nice. Would love to upgrade to an 8.5 at some point. That's my ideal grade for this book.
