Really for GA? What sort of books. Most shops I go to never have GA.

Last time I was there the basement was full ( it’s a 4 story building full of comic related items ) of slabbed GA books. I remember a lot of Timelys.

You are only saying that because he gives out free breath mints.

I've bought a few items from them before through their Ebay store.  Lots of listings and good service.  All BINs, I believe.  Here's a link

Not much here.  The only thing we have for GA as far as a physical venue is the once a year OAFCON.

Lots of great comic shops in Georgia...

 

Oh wait that's not the GA you were referring to...

Last year I finally ordered something from Eides (after calling them on the phone and getting a discount...heh, heh)...the prices were reasonable and the grading was accurate...

Almost always the case for me as well.  Actually got lucky last week and came across a small stash at a shop's dollar bin of early 50's little lulus.  Hey, I take what I can get sometimes :)

 

Are there any decent shops in Seattle that anyone knows of?

Comics Dungeon is probably the best store for GA in the Seattle area right now that I know of.  I don't often get up there, but I see them at Emerald City and Jet City every year, and they have at least some stuff.

Seattle has never really been a great location for GA books, other than perhaps Dells.  I don't think the distribution was great up here back in the day; some stores have a box or three but it's been hit or miss all my life.  O'Leary's was the best, but even then it was relative rather than absolute, perhaps.

I would have to agree, this is one of the best comic stores!

yeh, Richard's back issue inventory is extraordinary deep, strong, and most important, accessible.  Raw and boxes and boxes of slabs.  I think he brings more slabs than anybody else to shows as well, I'm talking in addition to the wall.

Buddy Saunders has more stock than anybody, but you can't just stroll into the warehouse and start pulling boxes.  Set up an appointment with Mr. Bedrock and boom.

Thanks for the response.  Browsing their website, can't see really what they  have, but it looks like a sale will be coming up in a few months!

I might have to get over on that side of the mountains :)
