I need that wood! 

Although that's not a stamp of quality, I'd buy my own strain of anthrax, a rabid possum or a dead hooker, as long as it had the marvel logo on it.

I think the boards have had great impact, for good and ill. Personally, I got into the boards way back when I discovered the Infinite Picture Frames thread. I had no idea that anyone else liked these covers, or that there was even a term for them. It definitely drove my interest in those books, and many others, over the years. Lots of folks have gotten turned on to really cool stuff because of the boards. The flipside is that I don't think there was as much of a focus on nosebleed grades before the boards and slabbing in general, which has sucked some of the fun out of the hobby. I personally still just buy books I like in condition that is good enough for my standards, but you see a lot of people who aren't content with anything below 9.8, which is a shame, because there are a lot of beautiful 9.4's and 9.6's out there!

TBH I like vintage comics in <9.5 better than 9.8. It gives the book a look of history. A sort of vintage style.

The same way Moderns look best in 9.8. They just don't look right otherwise (to me).

My thread on Charlton pence variants has sent prices through the roof! Comics that used to command as little as one pound fifty each now command as much as one pound seventy five each.

The power of advertising.

Any book I have purchased or even thought of purchasing has only depreciated in value since the inception of my thought.:(
