My wife set up an outdoor festival a year ago and I got the gentleman's information there (put up a little sign that "We Buy Comics!").....bought 80 boxes from him last fall.  Gave him a buzz last week and went back and bought the 10 more boxes this week....

Wow, Bearcatcoach, your finds are amazing!!

 

Thanks!  Got to do some legwork to pick up stuff like this but if you can put in the time (and have an understanding wife!) then it's out there to be had!

Going to look at a 20k+ comic collection next weekend that I have a lead on....Taking the big van, some $$$ and hoping we can work out a reasonable deal....

Just curious, do you bring cash with you? I would worry I'm being set up to be robbed with that much cash.

I remember when I met a guy one time to buy some McFarlane Sportspicks figures. We were supposed to met a mall and he told me to meet him at the back. I drove to the back and there was very little lighting.  I got a bad feeling about it and bailed ...

I also want to add, it's great that you have the intensity to keep locking down great stuff after buying collections not fully processed.

My friend who owned a shop used to go to these potential purchases if it looked like a lot of $ with off duty police/customers. When I look at nyc craigs list ads there is no way I am walking into these with thousands in my pocket.

Grabbed these for $30 at the flea market on Sunday.  Highlights were Batman 85 and 92 (first Ace the Bat Hound - no back cover, but not complaining for the price 😎)ADA938F7-B6D9-4920-AD59-1B662DF57FA3.thumb.jpeg.3992ec6ba499a7325bff4fcaf7737189.jpeg
