It's definitely European since it's HERO Turtles instead of NINJA Turtles.  The language looks Swedish. 

Is it a comic or a product catalog?

Comic. I had a German lady in a training course last week that confirmed not German, and also suspected Swedish.

It is from Sweden. In that back cover there is a coupon to order Turtles shirts and the address says Göteborg which is a city in Sweden. Maybe in this day and age with Google, Google Translate etc. it is not that difficult to find out things like this...

It's not that serious... Thought some fellow TMNT fans might find it interesting, so I shared...

Does anyone happen to have the last nycc #3 sales on record? 

Bumping this. I happened to have one sitting around which I've owned for 28 years. Would be interested to see what one would fetch.

Graded or raw? I sold my raw 8.5 condition one a few months ago in the $500-600 range. A quick ebay sold search turns up a graded 5.5 for $412, and a 9.0 Signature Series for $1,274, both in April.

That's really cool. I have two vending machine sticker ad pieces. I have doubles of both in case anyone wants to trade :baiting:

I have no idea what something like that would fetch in an open market, but I'm passively interested for nostalgia's sake.  I definitely had that exact Krang sticker in a place of prominence for years in my childhood room.  What kinds of things are you looking for?

I'd like to trade for other retail displays. But I collect lots of stuff.  Feel free to PM me.

Those are cool as well! I am sure I had most of those stickers!!

What I am most surprised about is that none of those keychains have fallen off!

Going for a bakers dozen run of TMNT books, picked up a lower grade copy of #3 (1st print) during FCBD sales. LCS has a good program where you get $10 cash back when you spend $100, so I used that and got the book for about $10 after discounts (very happy)! Still need #1, #2, #4, #12, but I'm getting there!

That looks like the standard "Hey, would you take $X to sell it to me offline?" result.

Whoa!!! I've never seen that done before. 

Welcome to your first month on ebay!

:jokealert:

It really does happen ALL THE TIME, despite being against eBay's Terms of Service.  It allows a seller to skirt the selling fees ebay charges even though they used eBay's infrastructure to connect to the buyer.  The seller will often make some quick money doing this, but many buyers will block the seller moving forward as they don't want to play games eBay's system.
