Value is in the eye of the beholder. To me, it's worth diddley. To someone else, a fortune.

Ian's post reminded me why so many people here disliked him.

I never knew him on the forums. And I still say what a weird hill to die on. Capitulating while still grasping for immortality.

"Yes. I spent a fortune."
"Sold them for a fraction of their value."
"They will be forever known as the "Ian Levine Collection."

Sad. Probably not even that. Not if they are sold separately with out the CGC Stamp Of Approval. What a life. Spending hundreds of thousands. Miss one issue. Get "beaten by a girl", have a stroke, sell the books for gas and lotto ticket money. Whew. Like the elderly golfer dying of a heart attack on the golf course in the movie "Fallen Down":

"MY...golf...course!"
"Yeah! And now you are gonna die on it. Wearing that stupid looking hat! Now. Don't you feel silly?"

Sounds like you don't know how to pick them the first 2 times so i don't know if i would trust your opinion :baiting:its still unrestored coverless with centerfold :jokealert:

I finally found a woman worth being with. She takes good care of me and I her. Be surprised how many women out there like to be taken care of but don't know ANYTHING about caring for their man. They aren't rare. 21 years married to her, now. Even when a new book shows up in the mail, she will take it from me and look at it and say "neat". She has no idea what she's looking at but she knows it makes me momentarily happy. Who could ask for anything more?

Is that so? Some joke. A few of us didn't have Mama and Pop-Pop propping us up. Some of us weren't born with a silver spoon in their behinds. 3rd time's a charm. Tell me about your life and all the good things you have done and perfect decisions you have made. I probably lived more life in a week than you have in a decade.

I Believe you (worship)

Yeah I mean it’s tough to know what the winning bidder was willing to go to. Maybe if I went to the next bid or $7400 it gets the job done, maybe they were willing to go further. I just knew I wasn’t going to bid more than $7K. Will have to wait for my next chance lol. Anyone remember this badass complete coverless copy? $83K seems like a solid deal now I would think lol.

Imagine what it was like trying to deal with him in person.

He got hold of Christine's number once and called her up. The next day he calls me to complain that she wouldn't let him have whatever book he wanted from her, and I'm sitting there thinking what a terrible thing to do, to call someone you don't know, when you've been told not to, and then complain when they don't want anything to do with you...I think the word I'm looking for is 'entitled'.

Christine told me about that when I met her, she was really upset about it.

It was quite funny when his computer crashed and he was bleating on about having lost Robbie Williams ' phone number though.

Sadly, there are plenty more like that not only in the comic book world but in the comic book art world...
