You know what makes me even madder than the GA section of eBay?

 

The lack of people selling GA Batman's I need in the sells forum. Now that really has me fuming :sumo:

 

That's because hardly anyone sells DC on these boards :(

 

I'm tired of seeing 1st app of Impulse in my saved search of Flash Comics #92 lol

 

Tired of seeing a lack of More Fun Comics. Its usually all late Green Arrow covers.

 

And of course low grade keys at high grade prices. Just sitting there.

I can tell you the GA I am not tired of seeing on ebay.

Among it there would be the early year runs of Topix: they never seem to be listed… :(

Im tired of seeing all those 1950s Actions for ridiculous prices, like $2000 for single highest graded copy (at 7.0)

Pricing is what kills me. How people think they can full guide + on westerns and Dells is beyond me. Everything is VERY aggressivly priced and graded. I have made a few very fair offers on average books in the past and turned down. I wish I could just avoid their auctions all together.

It's funny, but what's occurred on The Bay seems to be exactly what took place out here at the local swap meet, which had been going on for years at the local speedway. Races on Saturday night, then the swap meet on Sunday, where ppl would clean out their garages and such and bring the items, spread out on a blanket.

 

Then, little by little, "dealers" would begin to display their wares, usually selling off-price seconds. Before you knew it, the "dealers" were almost taking over, and that's when we stopped going, a good 20 years ago or so.

 

AFA the golden age horror and sci-fi listings at eBay, it's a real PITA to have to wade through the damn DVD's and novel pocket books, which ARE NOT comics books, and in addition, see the wayyyy overpriced comics from dealers like DTA Col or Mycomicshop, cluttering things up.

 

Back when I started on eBay in '98, there were only about TWO pages of G/A horror, and they were ALL practically from individuals, no slabs, and affordable, for the most part.

 

I've posted full runs of a number of different titles here, ALL from eBay purchases, transacted about 10-17 years ago. No way that I'd be able to do that today; it's changed, thank you very much, and for the worse.

Yeah, the GA section is pretty bad! Then when you do see a book you "have to have" and get outbid even when you go +1.5% guide :mad: ...doesn't help.

I have gotton outbid going 5-8 times guide on some things. There is just so little great stuff that anything good brings a frenzy it seems. A week or so I saw a Millie the Model #41 in around vg go for over $900.!!! It does have a GREAT DeCarlo cover but it probably "books" for $30. You do the math.

 

On the other side of the coin, I regularly get undergraded cool books from Adam Anderson (Blizzard) on the bay. Gotta step a little on the better stuff but love his Sunday auctions. Rest of the week is pretty much a bore fest...

I know I miss a lot but I set my ebay search parameters only for items that have at least one bid and over a certain price. No buy it now stuff but plenty of good deals.
