Welcome to my "store", where I'll perpetually offer up my undercopies and things that I've decided to no longer collect. Unless otherwise mentioned in individual book grading notes, all books are complete with no missing pages, cutouts, etc., and no known restoration or pressing. 

Here's a link to my KUDOS THREAD

I try to grade conservatively and cut to the chase on prices from the get-go. Of course, if you think I'm off on something, I'm happy to discuss. Thanks for looking/shopping! :foryou:

General Rules

  • No PL/HOS members, and I reserve the right to ask for references if you are a new/low post count boardie making a large purchase. Aside from that, the first taker wins, whether in the thread or via PM, based on time stamp.
  • The new board software does not display precise times that posts were made (either in PMs or in sales threads). So, although I don't like it, the first "take it" posted in the thread wins (whether a straight thread take it, or a "take it via PM" if we reached a deal via PM). I'll mark books SOLD as soon as reasonably possible; if I put a book ON HOLD, that book is not available for purchase until it comes back off HOLD


  • I'll take PayPal, personal checks, or USPS money orders;
  • I'll expect payment within 10 calendar days, or the book will be available for sale again (unless we've made other payment arrangements)
  • I'll gladly consider longer-term time payments, but PM me to discuss terms before taking a book if you need that.

Shipping Terms

  • USA:
    - Raw Comics: shipping via priority mail, $6 for up to 5 books, $10 for 6 or more books
    - Graded Comics: shipping via priority mail, $12 each book
    - Mad Magazines: qualify for media mail shipping, $4 flat regardless how many you buy
    - Other (non-Mad) Magazines: have ads, so have to go priority mail, at cost (around 10-12 mags will fit in a flat rate box for $12)
    - Of course, I'll combine shipping for multiple purchases to minimize your total shipping cost
  • Canada, UK or Australia:
    - we'll figure incremental shipping charges (either via first class or priority mail international, depending on package value and destination)
  • Other International Destinations:
    - case by case basis...I'll need to see if I'm comfortable with available shipping options


  • General Policy: I will accept returns for any reason within two weeks of your receipt of the books, as long as the books are returned to me as they were when you received them (note then that pressing of books will render them unreturnable). On raw book returns, you cover shipping cost back to me unless I messed up. On graded book returns, you cover shipping cost both ways. After two weeks, books are not returnable for any reason, except as specified below in the section entitled “Restoration and raw books.”
  • Restoration and raw books: I will offer a six month return policy for any raw books I have sold as unrestored that you submit for grading that come back as restored (or conserved). Upon the return to me of the slabbed book within six months of the date I shipped the book to you, I will refund your original amount paid to me (for the book plus shipping them to you). I will not refund any fees associated with grading/slabbing, including shipping the books to the grading company, or return shipping to me. Per the above “General policy,” if you have the book pressed in the process of grading it, it is unreturnable.

Here's a group lot of old Mad Annuals - these will provide hours and hours of reading insanity :insane:

Here's what you get, along with approximate grades:

Mad Follies #3 (VG/FN), #5 (GD) (total OSPG $15)
More Trash From Mad #11 (GD) (OSPG $2)
Mad Special #1 (GD) (OSPG $4)

Bonus inserts are missing from all books. If they had the bonus inserts, OSPG would be about $280 for the group...without inserts, OSPG gets cut in half to $140'ish...

Get this pile out of my house for $50 shipped in the USA. :insane:
