Theres a new product called "2019 Historic Autographs Comic Book Autograph Avalanche Box" which is pushed by many card dealers currently:

What it is basically, is a collection that was obtained by a dealer which supposedly contained plenty of autographed comics. They devised a plan to market these as Collectors packages:

Nice to know that we live in an era where the grab bags of the past made such a breakthrough with the aid of your friendly neighborhood card dealer

The sell sheet lists "Hae Lee" as one of the creator autographs you might pull.

This autograph nonsense is too much now.  I genuinely worry that in a few years, when these inexperienced collectors drop comics and the fad they created, we're going to be stuck with piles of signed books no one will want.

They can't sell their fake sports auto's now due to operation bullpen so they moved onto something else.

Amazing to see so many first edition Walking Deads pulled out of those cartons. 

It's almost as if they were from the early series.

The price point may be just affordable enough to ensure they make an obscene profit on their grossly overpriced, raw books.

:whistle:

I know a guy who has a slight issue with misophonia...which means "hatred of sound", usually referring to human sound, usually referring to people chewing.

I have it for the "scritch, scretch" sound of comic bags being moved and slid around on microphone...same thing with the sound of leafing through books as the pages scrape each other.

It's like fingernails on the chalkboard.

Not a problem in real life...but through a mic? Bleagh.

That already happened in the 90’s. I’ve pulled plenty of signed comics out of bargain bins. Even the polybagged platinum variant editions with COA’s

Thank you for the screen shot.  I thought I saw some texture in those books.  Someone should tell him that you can't toss around a comic in a bag and board the same way you can handle a card in a topload.

What kind of maniac needs every single issue of the same series signed by the creators?
