My Action/Adventure/Superman/Batman/Detective Collection. PT BATMAN 12-Ct bks. SAT 1/20 @ 10AM EST
4 4

373 posts in this topic

I've been collecting Superman and Batman for quite a while, but I've been getting away from SA and BA books, so I'm going to be listing that part of my collection during the next few weeks.


I'm going to start with the BA books, then the SA books, then add quite a few 10 cent books, early SA/ Atom Age/GA...whatever you want to call them;)

 

I plan on listing books for about 2 hours at a time. I'll note the days in advance and the time. If I won't be able to be there at that time, I'll hopefully let you know in advance. There are at least 450 books that I'm going to be listing, so this will take a few weeks. Feel free to accumulate the books and pay at the end, unless you prefer not to wait.

 

 

There will be one thread for the BA, 1 for the SA and one for the early SA/Atom/GA books, but you can combine the books so that you can take advantage of the shipping discounts.

 

Since these are all raw books, I'm pricing by looking at completed prices on eBay, then I deduct what fees would cost me and a little more.

I accept Paypal, checks or Money orders. 

First :takeit: here or in a pm wins, by time stamp. If I can't determine the time stamp, the board take it wins.

I will send invoices at the end, once you get the invoice, payment is due within 3 days unless we have discussed other arrangements.

 

If you need time payments, it's not a problem, but please PM me before taking anything.

 

Prices are going to be low on these books (at least I think they are low) All the books are raw, A few notes. None to the best of my knowledge,have been pressed or cleaned.

I count the pages on every book. I look at the centerfolds to make sure they are attached, if they aren't, I note it. I look for missing coupons, and I grade the way I'd like someone else to grade for something I'm buying, but anyone can miss something or make a mistake.

 

So...If I left anything out, just ask.

 

I take returns on anything. If you aren't happy for any reason, plmk within 3 days of receipt. If I ask you to return the book, then I expect the return within 7 days, packed the same way I sent it. If you just changed your mind, shipping is on you. If I made a mistake, return shipping is on me.

 

Shipping, I will charge exact shipping, but I will discount if you buy a certain amount.

Spend $100 and get $5.00 off shipping, $200 and get $10 off shipping, if you spend $300 or more, I'll ship for free (in the US, in Canada  I'll split shipping with you if you spend more than $300). If you live anywhere else, just pm me for shipping estimates before you buy anything.

 

For the USA, I use regional boxes whenever it lowers the shipping price. I don't charge for handling. All books are bagged and boarded, most are going to be in new bags and boards. Most are in Mylite 2's and hardbacks.

 

I can ship 2 regular (1 Giant) books in a cardboard mailer for about $3.00

3-5 books in a flat rate envelope with very strong boards (one will have a wood veneer) for $6.00

 

12 books in a regional box A for about $8 east coast, $11 West coast. (if it's less I charge the exact amount.) A regional box B is slightly higher but holds at least 20 books.


I do not ship comics media mail, because the Post Office states they can not be shipped media (it's in their regulations) and I don't want to be responsible if there is a problem.

Tracking is included and so is insurance (I pay for private insurance.). If you buy more than $200 worth of books, signature required is a must, but I pay for that in the US, in Canada, those packages must go priority.

I can ship first class to Canada, but its not cheap. Max is 4lbs.

 

I'm going to add a lot of freebies on the thread. If the requirement is # of books, that can't be combined with one that has a money spent requirement. This way, hopefully a few different people will get the freebies;)

 

I also add some kind of free gift to each order.

 

No list people please.

RECAP 

Page 1

Action 295, a great looking copy with some hidden defects, the top staple is detached from the cover. There is a corner fold on the top of the centerfold (probably when it was printed, I unfolded it;) There is a tiny nick at the top of the spine. It's  Hard to grade, but without the staple pop it would be at least F/VF, so I'm going to price it at about half that. Bin is  $30

 

Page 2

 Action 317, One of those goofy but fun Red Kryptonite stories where Superman's face turns all kinds of colors. 2nd story is about Supergirl and Lena Thorul (Lex Luthor's sister) and their friendship. Lena is quite a different person in the Supergirl TV show, you'll have to read the story to see the difference;).

Nice color, lower staple pop. There are some ncb creases on the back With the old Overstreet guidelines, I'd call it a Gd/VG but it's much too nice for that. I'll let you guess the grade;) bin is $9.00

 

page 3

Action #318, Death of Luthor (on the Planet Lexor!) and Supergirl pledges a sorority .

Several long creases, grade is Gd/VG (3.0) maybe a tiny bit better. Bin is $8.00

 

Action #324, there is one , 1" or less  piece of tape in the inside of the back cover, covering a 1/2” tear. Creasing and a stain on the back. Grade is Gd/VG, Bin is $6.00

Action #328, Atomic Bomb hands! Supergirl and the intergallactic version of the FBI;)

Nice color, some creasing on the front with a reading crease on the left, stain on the back that goes through a few pages. Grade is VG – (3.5) lowered for stain (someone left this on the kitchen sink;) . Bin is $8
