Whats your current inventory?

Can you break it down to:

Books you will sell in <45 days, 45-180 days, >180 days

That was harder to do then I thought but I do have some comics I know I want to sell in 30-45 days if possible.

 

IH 180 CGC 5.0 SS

FF 53 CGC 7.0

Immortal Ion Fist 17 CGC 9.8

He was being sarcastic. Neither book is considered hot or really a book you should be buying at near the going rate if you want to make a profit.

Is that a $15 profit after all fees etc?

 

Just another word of advice...spending $115 to net $15 is not the best business model, especially when you don't deal in volume 2c
