Funny Sales Listings

For some of the old timers, this ad of Theo Holstein's OSPG ad always resonates when I think about funny sales listings.  Not sure if you can make out his Burt Reynolds pose (nakedness) but it jumped out at you in the OSPG.

He was selling on Ebay with wildly high prices for books under the name of preduction, I believe but not sure if he still does.

And kind of a sales ad for his comics, Stan Lee also did the full monty.

The thing that always gets me about this pic is that I'm sure Stan was saying "Oh, it's just for fun, you know?" But somewhere deep inside he was thinking "I am a stone cold hunk."

Looks better in that picture than I do recently...

More like ‘most comic book writers would only need a regular size comic book for this pose, but I need to use a larger  Treasury Edition.‘

He’s clearly bragging.

Offering the same amount for a Marvel Comics #1 and a Marvel Mystery #2? Was there ever a time when the two books were even close to being similarly valued? 

Spider man #1 (spelling) is mentioned in the sale section, but AF #15 isn't mentioned at all?

He should've used "Giant Size Man-Thing" for the comic.
