@Thearrow - I don’t have that issue, but there’s a reader copy for $9 on Mycomicshop.com.

If you don't find one by this evening, I'll look in my box at home. I just bought some long boxes that had some sporadic Metal Men in them but I can't recall what was there.

Roy at VintageComics.com grades very tightly, and he does not price gouge books.

I would recommend buying from him to anyone.

His web site does not have much of any inventory listed except a few high end keys but he has thousands of higher grade gold thru copper books.Mostly silver age.

I know he runs a raw and slabbed sales threads occasionally on the CGC Forum and offers a want list service.

Drop him an email thru his site, Facebook page or on the CGCForums.he has ample feedback from CGC board is on there.

I'm a huge Metal Men fan.
Here's a link to one on ComicConnect's site graded as a raw 7.5 for $35. Looks decent.

You may be able to score that slabbed 8.0 on the cheap.

GPA has a 8.0 at $50...With a Boston pedigree 9.0 at $60...Both in 2015.

Didn't check Overstreet but I'd guess that CC'S 7.5 price is likely around Overstreet for VF-.

I think the actual value on virtually all non key 2nd tier titles like Metal Men in later numbers like this one, raw 7.0/7.5. ..is ten bucks.

Basically, about 25-50% of Ovetstreet is what silver/bronze actually sells at.

If you want to sell it.

That's how I price point my books at cons.

Books like this will sell for say $30 + shipping via an eBay BIN...FC/BC scans supplied and not softly graded.It may take a year or two.It may take a week.

If I listed a book like this, I'd put it slightly below Overstreet.

But I sell at shoes, so it makes practical sense to blow books put, essentially.

I'd rather pop these sorts of books into Mylite2 and Full Backs, filed into my $10 boxes at shows. They sell well at those sorts of discounted figures.

The funny thing is, some guys will pull out 3 books like a Metal Men #26 in 7.0-ish.... basically books that would have a cumulative Overstreet value at $50 to $100,for the 3 books, out of my labeled $10.00/EACH boxes at shows and than say:

"How about $20 for these?".

Sir, those books are $10 each.😩

"Would you do $25?"

No, sir. Thanks, but that doesn't work for me.

"Alright, how about we just call it even at 27 bucks.That's only 10% off your stickered price.".





Like the kids say nowadays....

The struggle is real.
