This is my last purchase of 2016

And probably your first sale of 2017! :baiting:

 

:applause: This will make it til at least March, Tony!

 

I don't sell everything, you know? Just 75% - I pan a lot of gold and a little stays in my jar. Tony Beets "Gold Rush" reference.

 

The stuff I do sell gets to swirl around in the community and keep the GGA titles in the first page of the Gold sales forum a lot, which I think is a good thing. I like hunting, I like buying, I like selling for extremely marginal profits at best, and occasionally I like keeping too.

Here's my last pickup in 2016. Not the best of condition, but it's a Pep that I've wanted to find for a long time!

This Christmas Eve buy came in; it will stand as my last GA buy of 2016, but my last 2016 buy period is early SA, (House of Mystery 84, the Negative Man prototype issue, from the $1 bin of one of those sad comic shops where no one buys back issues....more and more I see them...)

This was my last purchase for December. It is the single highest graded copy. A very welcome addition to my collection. I will probably have it put into a new holder.

Nice pickup from Jeff! Having owned the Mile High run of Sensation Comics from #2-30 plus 40 others, I can tell you the #15 was damaged. Your copy is quite probably the best copy in existence!

Just kiddin ya! I think we all do some catch and release. A lot of great books out there and we all have budgets -- except Gator!

 

Have another great year in 2017, my friend!

I remember talking to a big dealer once and asking him about his collection. He said "My collection is my current inventory" Me, I'm a collector. I hang on to what I buy because I love my books or I wouldn't have bought them in the first place. Different strokes though, everybody's motivation is different.

 

That being said, it's Jan 1st Rick. Time for a new sales thread? I've got a new budget...?

Thank you! Coming from someone who at one time owned the Mile High run of Sensation Comics 2-30 plus 40 others that means a lot to me. It's a very nice feeling owning the best copy in existence!

I buy to keep, but the problem is I end up wanting something even more and so I must sell something I had earlier planned on keeping. Make sense? :ohnoez:(shrug)
