JUNK SALE! Old Comics, Pulps and other surprises from my junk pile!

Howdy Gang the ole Robot Man is back with some more goodies from the junk pile. This stuff has been piling up for quite a while and it's time to move them out. I usually due my sales in one or maybe two days but I've got quite a pile so this will probably take all week.

Please read below about PMs and offers. I want to get this stuff listed and give everyone a chance so I probably won't be reading PMs until I am done. I get a few everytime that want me to drasticly reduce a price with in seconds of posting. It ain't fair to the rest of you or to me so I probably won't do discounts the first day.

Rules:

No problem children or HOS members.

Postage is $5.00 each for comics, very well packaged (unless noted in listing) I will combine postage on multiple purchases. All will come with tracking. 

I prefer to sell only to US addresses but might make an exception if I know you.

PM's and offers... I am trying to sell this stuff and want to get as much listed as I can. I try to price fairly. I probably won't have a lot of time to review PMs if I want to get this stuff listed. An "I'LL TAKE IT" icon takes it first. So, keep that in mind if you want something. When I get done, I will review PMs (in order of when they came in). If you have a question (other than a lower offer) post it and I will try to answer you.

Payment is by PayPal within 3 days FIRM. I will also take checks and money orders if you let me know after I send you an invoice.


Returns: No hassle returns within two weeks from when tracking says it was delivered. Return postage is on you unless I make a gross error and in that case I will "man-up" and pay return postage. I don't expect any returns though as I've only had 3 or 4 in 40 years. 

This stuff all comes from a smoke filled, varmit infested, mouldy junk house. (Just kidding!) Here we go...

Something a little different!

1937 Melvin Purvis Secret Operator Brass Ring and highest rank Captain Badge. Mail away items from Quaker Oats back in the lawless days of the 1930's. Nice shape with just a little wear mostly on the badge. The ring is pretty hard to find and in demand with premium collectors.

$85. for the pair + $2.50 postage
