Before the Carnage begins I want to pause and address a couple of questions I get every sales thread. hm

 

1.) International buyers especially new board members - There is no way to ship cheaply overseas none. 1st class is almost as expensive now as flat rate is which is your best option. I say this because almost every time I get an international buyer that freaks when they get the shipping bill at end of my sale. I ship at my cost and packing. I wish I could ship it cheaper to you its just not possible.

 

2.) Grading - I grade no higher then NM+ 9.6 and NM+ is perfect to me. I don't care if the book is perfect in every form its still NM+ for me. Why? To protect my reputation as a seller and to allow the buyer if they so choose to slab the book to get a higher grade. Ask Junkdrawer I sold him 4 Scooby 12s newsstands last sale as 9.6 they all came back 9.8. He got the benefit and my reputation doesn't take a hit.

 

Either of those two questions PM will get referred to this post this time around.

 

Let the Carnage begin

This will be a very long sales thread. It run for several weeks and have around 600+ books in it I think.

 

It consists of 50% modern, 40% Copper 8% Bronze and 1% Silver. The other 1% I have no clue what age they are in.

For those that don’t know me I am 100% ebay feedback seller for over 16+ years here is a link to my feedback HERE I grade and pack my comics well and my feedback shows as much. I dont grade above 9.6 NM+ on any raw book. I do this to both protect my reputation and to benefit the buyer on the chance it does grade higher. I have a Kudo's thread as well HERE

 

Packing

I ship in 10 x 15 bubble mailers(Media only) with tons of oversized cardboard to protect the books and switch over to boxes after like 8 books or so. Your books will get to you safely I pack very well. I use a ton of oversized cardboard and secure books inside double bagged taped down, so they wont move or get corner dinged in shipping.

 

Flat rate envelopes get the same treatment and I ship long version so I can get a little longer cardboard in the mailer. I ship my comics how I would like them shipped to me.

 

Payment Methods

Paypal, Money Order/Cashier Check, and Personal Check (Business Hold will apply). I send out spreedsheets at the end of each sales thread to double check and to make sure everything is correct.

 

Shipping

US Shipping

 

Priority Mail Flat Rate

$6.00 for up to 12-14 books. Remember more books means less packing. I use legal flat rates so they are much longer and packing is much better in them.

 

Media Mail

I got no problem using Media mail, but the buyer must accept the fact that it may be opened and damaged in inspection. Which is out of my hands. If you are not comfortable with this then don't select media mail when I send you a quote. If you are okay with that risk then its $5.50 unlimited books. I will pack them in a cardboard brick for safe transit. It will take you time to open them.

 

International Shipping

I am sorry to say, but shipping internationally got much more expensive with a rate change this past year.

 

Canada

Flat Rate Envelope - $24.50 (12-14 books is max) Again I use legal flat rates which are longer so I can pack better. First Class Shipping - $7.50 one book add $.50 per book after that up to about 4-6 books then the weight makes it unable to do more and will have to switch to flat rate.

 

Rest of World

Flat Rate Envelope - $32.50 (12-14 book max) (Post Office Rate Change)

I can also ship flat rate box as well. I can get your quotes on med or large box if needed. It is cheaper to ship in a Priority Long box then 2 flat rate envelopes. It is slightly cheaper to some countries via flat rate and I will refund if it is.

 

Priority Box Version - I can fit about 28 books well packed with cardboard in a priority regular long box. This cost would be subject to weight and location of shipment. It is still much cheaper then a Medium Flat rate long box.

 

I ship all over the world, but please inquire on rates. Some international buyers still don't understand there is no way to ship comics cheap international. Once you pass a flat rate envelope of say 12-15 books the cost sky rockets.

 

Disclaimer

HOS members please don't bother as me I wont honor your transactions no matter what. You earned your spot there. There are two board members who I would suggest not to participate in this thread. They know who they are and have been told in the past not to purchase from me.

 

Return Policy

Notify me and simply return the book if you are unhappy I will refund no issues. Please keep it within a month's time I think that is more then enough time to review a book.

Superman Man of Steel 18 5th print DC Universe

 

I grade this a 5.0/5.5 F- due to a sticker removal on back cover.

God I hate shops that do that. Then someone removes it.

 

Very attractive front cover. Back cover not so much.

 

$35.00
