IF 14

 

What were the grades on these two and how much did you pay if you don't mind my asking. I am in the market for IF 14, but would like to get a VF copy at around 50% guide....it's just a matter of time.

nikos:

 

did you buy Metro's raw Boston copy of Cap 110, or did you buy one of the slabbed Boston copies off of Comiclink?

Well with those two issues right now you'd have to deal with a insufficiently_thoughtful_person or real nice person, as they are selling for at least 65-75% of guide right now in 7.5 or better(from my knowledge). Your best chance for 50% of guide would be GL/GA 76 in 6.5-7.0, the IF 14 is still pulling down 80%-90% of guide in 8.0 or better.

 

GL/GA 76 7.0-7.5 for $66

IF 14 8.5-9.0 for $89

ASM 126 9.4 (Q)

I tested out ComicSupply's VF/NM - NM/M and got a NM ASM twofiftysomething.

DD 25 Ohio and DD 62 from the Blazing One, probably a bit over a week ago.

 

Otherwise my purchases in previous weeks of a half-dozen Northland Sgt Furys, two Green River Sgt Furys and 9 Ohio Tales to Astonish have sapped me for a bit.

Metros, I still kick myself for not picking up Bacheras raw copie awhile back at the Boston show, and picking up Superman 233 Boston copy instead.

yeah... Metro wanted $290 for their raw Boston 9.4 -- now isn't a slabbed Boston 9.4 White pager up on Comiclink?

 

I passed on the Metro one because some of the Bostons are 9.2s not 9.4s but the page quality on all of them is beautiful, so I'm sure you got a sweet book.

They do have great page quality, no doubt. The one I passed on a while back was truly awesome, it looked to be in 9.4/9.6 grade and he was asking $250 foreheadslap.gif

I will find one. All it takes is a few months looking on eBay for a poorly listed copy with a small scan. I have a GL/GA already...it's about a 7.0 and I got it for about the same price as you.

ohhhh..... damn man! you should have jumped on that! 110 is without a doubt the most valued of the Steranko Cap issues. At worst a 9.4 and sellable for $350, at best a 9.6 and sellable for $550. good pickup regardless though. did you think Metro's was a true 9.4?

I know frown.gif, still kicking myself over that one. The one from Metro should be here anyday. As for CL, its a clusterf.. in there, so I just avoid it.

Oh yeah, Batman #244 from a buddy of mine for $40. Looks like a NM except for some small invisable creases, maybe pressing candidate 893scratchchin-thumb.gifpoke2.gif

This week in your collection?

Due to computer problems, my internet is down. So no comics this week (or last week). I was going to bid on a run of Mr. Monster. Now I'll have to start looking again when I get my computer back up.

      Visit the "Official 2017 CGC Chat Boards Holiday Gift Exchange Sign-Up Thread" for all the details.
      CLICK HERE FOR LINK
      But clicking is a lot of work, so for those interested, the details can be found below.

       
      Welcome to the 2017 CGC Chat Boards Gift Exchange
      For those who are new to the Program or otherwise have a very bad memory, the idea is simple. Basically you will give a gift to a fellow board member, and also receive a gift yourself from a different boardie. This way, each person will get to interact with two fellow boardies in the Gift Exchange Program. It does not matter what seasonal Holiday you celebrate, what creed or religion you claim, this Gift Exchange is more about giving and getting a gift than celebrating a specific holiday. We are celebrating comics and our community. Times may currently be tough for some, but it is worth pausing to recognize the importance the CGC community brings to each of you.
      Some Details on the Gift Exchange Program
      How much should my gift be for? Up to you. There are people that send gifts that have values that are all over the place. $15-20? Sure. $50-$100? Sure. You are certainly welcome to send more expensive gifts, but the gift should be worth at least $15. Lots of people just give something from their own collection, so the cost is negligible.
      Does my gift have to be new? No
      Does it have to be comic related? Yes
      Am I supposed to sign who my gift was from? Yes, you should - your identity is only secret till they open their gift.
      Do I have to wrap my gift in a Holiday fashion? Yes. Extra points for wrapping it in the Sunday Comics
      Am I supposed to wait until Christmas to open my gift? Yes, unless you celebrate another holiday in which case, follow your traditional holiday gift opening program
      How will I know who I am Santa for? You will receive a PM your recipients details once sign up is over.
      When is sign up over? Friday, November 24th at 11pm (ET).
      PMs with your Secret Santa information will be sent out over the weekend. Everyone who signs up will have their PM by Sunday night (11/26).
      What if I miss sign up but want to participate? PM me, we will try to work something out.
      What if I never receive my gift? There will be people who will be assigned as a back up Santa. Everyone who signs up will get a gift... sooner or later.
      Who is eligible to participate? You are eligible if you registered for the CGC boards before November 9th, 2016 and/or have a post count of at least 150 by November 9, 2017, provided that you are a member in good standing with the community, i.e., not on the CGC Chat Board Marketplace Probation List.
      (This way, those who have become active members of the CGC Chat Boards after the change in Feb. 2016 may still participate.)
      What and when is the Holiday raffle? People will be donating comic related prizes that will be given away after the Holiday is over in a blind drawing. More details about that will be in another thread.
      Participating in the exchange does not automatically enter you into the raffle. Anyone who wants to be part of the raffle must donate an item. This assures everyone who joins is guaranteed to receive a prize. If you don't join in with the gift exchange, but would still like to join in with the raffle, just donate a prize to the raffle and you'll be entered. Not participating in the gift exchange? Not donating a prize for the raffle? That's okay, as well
      If you decide, after submitting the form, that you would like to donate something simply bump our PM.
      The rules are simple, but need to be followed to make sure everyone who signs up gets a present by Christmas. If you sign up, please follow through and don't wait until after the fact to fulfill your duties. 
      To officially "sign-up" Fill out the questions below then PM this info (cut and paste fashion) to me... HollyJollyOne <---- linked here 
      ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      **Please make sure to create the PM with your BOARD NAME AND 2017 as the title.**
      CGC Board name:
      Real name:
      Mailing address:
      Collecting preferences (what you might like to receive):
      Who were you Santa for last year:
      Who was your Santa last year:
      Would you be willing to ship to board members outside the United States?
      Do you live outside the United States? If yes, what's the fastest way for your Santa to ship to you?:
      Would you like to participate in the CGC Holiday Raffle?
      What is that Raffle Gift? (description and/or url with a link to the item)
      Would you be willing to be a back up Santa in case some cannot follow through?
      ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      And that's all there is to it!
      Happy Holidays everyone!
