Just leave it up to the judgment and means of the giver. We are all adults here. To some of us $50 is lunch money, but to some of us $10 is a tidy sum this time of year especially.

If I gift someone a 9.6 copy of Plan 9 From Outer Space, they should be excited. On the CGC census there is only one listed and it is an 8.5 But the book value of it is maybe $3.00 currently.

You will get what I give you, and LIKE IT!

In all seriousness. I'm good no matter what you "suggest". I have no problem ignoring your wishes. Never have.


^^^ This right here x 10!!!

There is joy in giving and there is joy in receiving. Don't get hung up on the "legalities" of it. I think it's understood that we are talking"book" value here. And the amount is TOTALLY a suggestion! It's something so that everyone has an idea of what is expected. For $20, no one is expecting a slab (well, maybe SOME of you are - LOL). Just do what you can and have fun with it!

Okay, sign me up. Old stuff if possible, please, like Silver Age
Adventure Comics and/or Batman/Detective Comics; or just something out of the ordinary like a foreign comic.
Thanks for setting this up, Jesse.

I have MOST people's information. I am still waiting on two people to get back to me. So, if you haven't pmed me your address, check your messages and send me the info asap!! I also have had some unexpected (but welcome) visitors this weekend so I probably would not have gotten it out today anyway. If I don't hear from the two I am waiting for by tomorrow 2 pm (CST), I will match up the rest and go from there. I'll try to get it all out tomorrow late afternoon or evening.

Happy Holidays everyone!!!

Just a quote note. It's advisable to add tracking when you mail your package. With the mail getting so behind this time of year, it's good to have that.

Hey. I just thought of something.

What if all of us were designated as Secret Santa's for some guy named Jesse Oyeababy?

SCORE!

The person I got is going to get a sweet package from me.

I asked my local comic store, who agreed to mail them for me so the person I got doesn't know who his secret Santa is..

Funny how giving away comics can be just as fun as buying them 😁

I got a little carried away, and didnt stick to the $20...

Merry Christmas! 🎄🎄🎄

My Secret Santa gift sending didn't go as I had planned. I left the return address off the package (to remain a secret santa), and the post office would not let me mail it without a return address.

I thought about using a different address but since the item is insured I was afraid that might be a problem if things went south.

Best Laid Plans of Mice and Men.

Speaking of Christmas Presents. I ordered a couple of slabs from Comixology aka Comic Mint, for presents to me from my wife. I will give them to her to wrap when they finally get here. I also ordered a few raw books from a private person.

None of them have arrived yet. No notice of having been shipped either. They were ordered on Nov. 28th.

My wife has 10 presents under our tree, from me. I have one (a sweatshirt I bought and gave her to wrap to me) (It is sweet).

But we are going to have Christmas at our youngest sons home on a different day than the 25th, and there will be plenty of presents for me there, from my three sons and their wives.

So I'm good. But my wife is concerned about my lack of presents under our tree.

I might be able to use this to my advantage and get something BIG. Like a NM 98.

@conditionfreak I am 🤷‍♂️. I thought your wife asked you to get rid of some comics but now you managed her to give you more! How did you end up with this achievement? 😂

Hope all arrives on time!

Honestly, I think it is because I am always on deaths doorstep, and she wants me to be happy in the time I have left.

WINNING!
