I got the same feeling when I listed some books there last month @DavidTheDavid

I didn't like the extended bidding on ComicConnect at first, it took away some of the "eBay" auction feel for me and that's where I really had spent most of my bidding time. However, after listing a few books on there, losing a few last second bids on there and talking to some very smart friends, I think they are doing themselves a disservice by not having extended bidding.

No extended bidding is only good for the discount looking buyer which is not good for the seller and I can't imagine it's good for the bottom line of the auction house.  ComicConnect has no issue getting buyers for books so I don't think there is really any reason to not have extended bidding at this point.

Flash 123 in 7.0 for $6700? Am I seeing that right? Even mid grade DC's are crushing GPA highs by a factor of 4x now? 

Can't imagine that's real. One sold this month for $1700, and I can't think of any reason for that issue to pop.

that reminds me - I need to crack mine out.  But what exactly are you saying here?

This is my one win from the auction. Asking with a joke about the threads from people concerned that their comics are listed on some auction site.

On a separate note, the stuff I had for sale at auction did decidedly meh. 

Nice pick up - looks really nice.  Did you set a new low, pay through the nose, or get it for about average?

Speaking of Comiclink - are any of you bothered by the stickers they slap on the slabs they sell? Do you remove them? And if yes, how? Flamethrower? :flamed:

 

I hate them and so usually buy elsewhere. When I do buy from them I use olive oil to remove them.

What about the Mister Miracle 1 in 9.4 for $875? That was surprising.

@lizards2 about average, it's a nice looking copy for the grade, unless the back cover is atrocious. :)

It's an outlier alright. By "not real", you're thinking it got shilled that high? Wonder what CL would do about that if you're right.

Maybe supremely pressable to a 9.2 or something ridiculous?

It's very surprising that the Avengers #6 in CGC 7.5 just sold for $851 on ComicLink...is this book heating up again?

Anyone else had any issue with receiving payment from Comiclink for previous auctions? Normally it takes no more than two months, but I sold some books there last year (November) and still haven't received payment. I contacted them a month ago and they said the check must have been lost in the mail and they would send another ASAP. Asked them last week to confirm whether a replacement check had been sent and was told they were busy but would look into it and get back to me. Still haven't heard anything... :censored:

They're busy?  Not the best response in the world.

Yeck. I've never had it take more than a month, and I've always had prompt replies. I'm curious how this resolves. It'd make me rethink using them.

I love this book.  Tough as nails in high grade too.  Great pickup!

Alright, I made my preview earlier today of the auction starting tomorrow and bookmarked several items. Probably just after four in particular though.
