Tonight I will be listing about 22 Raw, Rare or in some cases, Scarce Batman and Detective  Comics. All are raw, I've owned them for at least 15 years, maybe more. I have a smoke free home.

At one time I was trying to fill in all the Action , Adventure, Batman, Superman etc comics from 100 and up. A lot of these books were hard to find, still are, so all I found were low grades and after a while, I just gave up. For most of these, unless in the case of the Wonder Womans I have a recent upgrade to base the prices on, I'm basing the prices on what I see closed on eBay

 

I will consider reasonable offers, esp. for more than 1 book), otherwise I'll just list the leftovers on eBay and keep my fingers crossed;) I wanted to offer them here first:)

This thread will stay open until Sunday night at 8 pm.

 

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, although I've had to combine because I try to replace all bags and boards and I'm running out;).

 

I can ship 2 regular (1 Giant) books in a cardboard mailer for about $3.50

3-5 books in a flat rate envelope with very strong boards (one will have a wood veneer) for $6.50

 

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.  

 

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

I'll be posting a lot of pictures, please click on the spoilers, they are all full size.

 

Batman #87 1954

Batman falls in love. Nice color, nice gloss, there are 2 hard creases at the corners and it looks like a bug chewed down the spine about 1.5” at the cover , and for about 1/4” at the top of the pages. There is a stain of some sort on the woman's face, not sure if it's crayon. There is a small tear at the right edge, less than 1”. I'm iffy about the grade. Would be VG/F or better without the stain and the chew. I'm going to guess VG- (3.5) 2 books in the fair to gd range sold on eBay for around $70 each. I saw a few marked higher (that looked a lot lower than this one ) and one sold for $90. Bin is $85.00 Sold to Norrin's Lawyer.

Batman #120, 1958 . 1st Whirlybirds. Nice gloss, one crease at the tom, a little bit of creasing at the bottom, relatively flat, but there is a piece missing at the lower left on the front. It would be in the Fine range if not for the piece missing. Although I have SEEN books graded Fine or a little better with a piece this size missing (lately). I'm going to grade this a really nice looking Gd/VG (3.0) Bin is $65 sold to Norrin's Lawyer

Detective #194, 1953, More Vats spilling!  Scarce (the book, not the vat, there seem to be plenty of huge vats in Gotham;) , there are 11 (I restored) books on the census. There is 1 for sale from England, a 3.0 for $197. OR you could take this nifty copy, it's really easy to read because the cover is detached, and if you wanted to use the front cover as a poster, you could, because it's also detached from the back cover. It's a Fair copy of a fairly hard to find book;) Complete and if you don't hate tape you could fix it up;) Bin is $41.27 or  21 % of what they are asking for a 3.0;) (and don't forget they are also asking $25+ in shipping;)

 

sold to Kevin J

Detective 195, 1953,The ORIGINAL Batman (unlike the story in a book I will post later, the FIRST Batman;) Great color and the gloss is more of a matt finish. There is a small change in color under the “s”, ½ “ because that was one of two places where a cup or glass was put down on the book. There is a cover spine split bottom, and a few creases lower right and writing (in pencil) on the first page of the Robot Man story. A 6.0 just old on eBay for $422 Grade is VG- (3.5) (because of the rings) or a little better, the book is very solid feeling, the bin is $245.00
