Some books I picked up all at my local flea market, for some great prices.

Thor 165, 4.5 $70

Thor 390, 9.2 $1.75

Avengers Annual 10, 8.0 $10

Iron Man 126, 6.0 $3

Moon Knight 1, 4.5 $5

As I'm not a huge marvel guy I'll probably trade/sell these books.

I imagine she forced it down his throat to knock him out and enable her to take possession of the figures

This room cost $20 at an auction today.....I was tempted just for the tubs alone....but in the end I passed as it would have taken me hours to go through the stuff and I didn't want to be in that house that long!

At $20 for the entire room? Hell, if I was in that auction ... I would go for that and take all the tubs! Then I will take my time going through them at home and weed out what is good. The mystery what’s among in the pile is too much for the cat and its curiosity, and I am that CAT! lol

You're right - I would have bought it for the tubs.

I am sure you could get more than that for the empty tubs.   I would have just recycled so much stuff.

Bad call.

You found those envelopes, so highly likely there would have been comics or comic related stuff in that room.

It may have all been junk, but that's how the 'lucky' people find the good stuff - by doing the hard work such as shifting and sorting this mess.

Wouldn't be the first or last time I made a bad call.....it is possible and even probable that there were a couple hidden gems in that steaming pile.....however my time is worth way more to me than to haul someone else's garbage way.  I was more than happy to pass up that room and the 4 other rooms they sold for nothing....good luck to the couple people that bought them.  Hope they find some good stuff to make it worth their time!

Bearcat, you done lost your mind on this one!

Even if you bought, quickly reviewed, and dumped, you are only out $20. 

Wish I had the opportunity of something like this one.  If it was all trash, you can help a brother out at the ARC.

@Bearcatcoach don’t feel bad about it

just looking at all those bins makes my head hurt!

Maybe there is something good in that mess but there is a lot of junk & many trips to the garbage there too!

Congrats! One of the best Heath war covers. Nothing quite like an in-expected surprise like that.

The last thing I need is more junk but I would have hit that. Looks like a lot of comics in there. It wouldn’t have taken that long to sort it out and dump the trash. I’m sure there was at least something good there. If not, you are only out $20. And a couple hours of your time. The empty tubs are worth that.
