Does not make any sense at all. wtf. :whatev:

I won it. Today is my birthday and I really like Mark Bright Iron Man art:) It’s not easy to find great examples. The only thing in the entire auction I targeted.

Oh man I was mildly interested in this as that was during my nostalgic zone but that's crazy!

I PM'ed a boardie offering to step aside on a lot I expect that he will want but he hasn't read it, so I guess it will be a duel in the sun at noon!

Tony Daniel pieces for under $1K, I guess it is only Batman that goes wild.

I don't know his market at all, just surprised.

I thought the Doc figure in that Avengers page by Finch/Miki was very overworked. Still a nice page though.

New to the board. I got the TTA 64 Attuma Page for $600. Silver Age Marvel. Seems like a steal but maybe it’s just the market correcting. Thoughts?

I was fortunate enough to win the Monster Hunters #1 painting by Don Newton, a blast from my past and also the Hulk/Silver Surfer illustration by Perez and Weiss.  The informational caption doesn't mention but the Hulk/Surfer art was used for the 1979 Hulk calendar, one of the first Marvel items I ever had when I was a kid.

I will never understand why people are willing to rely on technology working perfectly at critical moments. 

Maybe I'm just too risk averse but if it was something that I really really wanted, I would never put myself in a position that an ill-timed outage in the internet/HA site/audio/video (take your pick) would cause me to lose out on a piece.  

You mean on a site and in a bidding process that I’ve been using for well over 10 years wiithout a single issue before yesterday?

especially when I had tried phone bidding in the past and missed items when the call didn’t come?

Short  of flying in a week ahead of time to bid in person (to avoid travel issues), drinking only bottled water and eating saltines at every meal (to avoid food poisoning ) , and dressing only in a hazmat suit ( to avoid the random disease or outbreak ), all to bid live in the room,  I’m pretty satisfied with my efforts and precautions on this one. 

Or just put in your bid before online bidding closes so you'll know that it's in for sure. (shrug)

You may not have personally experienced a problem with live bidding before, but others have previously described live bidding problems, so it's not exactly a black swan event.    

Anyways, you clearly have all the answers, so I'll just shut up now.

Thanks!  The Lucy one was my favorite piece but I thought for sure I would loss it so I went for my 2nd favorite.  The last auction that had a bunch of Peanuts I took the opposite approach and came away empty handed and a little crushed.

You clearly learned from that auction and raised your game in response. :golfclap:

Clearly there's at least one other big Bright fan out there.
