While for many here these are not big books they certainly were for me

My 4 better consigned books were delayed to the March 5-8 Signature Auction.

 All scans are available, and the bidding actually opened a few days ago. 

 Special Edition 1 CGC 6.5

Seven Seas 1 Big Apple CGC 8.5

New Book of Comics 2 CGC 5.5

Uncle Sam Quarterly 1 CGC 7.5

These books have not been up for sale for nearly 20 years, and were part of one of my last major comic investments.

Also hitting the blocks in the NEXT Sunday-Monday Weekly (FEB 17-24) auction are two of my better Silver/Bronze books that are recently back for grading. Hulk 181 7.0 and Aquaman 29 8.0

https://comics.ha.com/itm/bronze-age-1970-1979-/the-incredible-hulk-181-marvel-1974-cgc-fn-vf-70-white-pages/p/122008-101001.s?

Besides my 7.0 there is also an 8.0 in the same auction.  Hope mine comes after the higher grade one.

https://comics.ha.com/itm/silver-age-1956-1969-/aquaman-29-dc-1966-cgc-vf-80-off-white-to-white-pages/p/122008-101002.s?

That still leaves 2 other recently slabbed books (Cap 100 and Aquaman 11) to be scheduled.

As I mentioned previously if you win one or more of my auctions I will use the net proceeds to buy missing or upgrade FOUR COLOR issues for my collection.  I am currently missing just over 100 issues and want to upgrade at least another 200 issues.  For example if you win the Hulk 181 with a hammer of $2,000, you will pay $2,400 with BP and I will net $1,800 after SP.  That will leave me with $1,800 to spend on your NICE, but often hard to move Four Colors.  Net result, for $600 and a pile of Four Colors you can have a nice Hulk 181.  Call it a QUID-PRO-QUO if you will, but more like a perfect transaction to me.

Feel free to pm me with questions

All 6 books are open for bidding

Led off by the Hulk 181  already at $1,250

Hoping all of my sales via Heritage auctions yield enough to pay for the  2016 Mercedes B250e  I bought my wife last year just prior to consigning last September

To paraphrase  Chicago voting  "Bid Early  and Bid Often"

 

Thanks for looking

Hulk closed at 2001.  nipping the other bidder who was at 2000

 

The 4 books I bought as an investment back about 15 years ago are closing this week  starting off with the Special Edition #1  TOMORROW.  This is the nicest copy of the first book devoted to Captain Marvel in well over a decade

 

During that closing I will likely be at the Retina specialist  getting a pelet inserted into my EYE via needle.  Hoping to stop the diabetic retinopathy

 

Remember if you win one of my books I will purchase some of your FOUR COLORS
