I don't think ending the call was inappropriate on our part.


I've no idea what else was stated in the back and forth up to that point. Nonetheless, I would have backed away from the conversation, as that's edging up to a line I wouldn't go towards in a conversation with anyone.

Agree...if that statement is true, not appropriate in any day and age.

Yeah, that crossed the line, IMO. Threaten someone over a comic book? Nah. I wouldn't put up with that either, not for a second. Life's too short to let some yahoo prattle on with tough-guy posturing. And the over-the-top insinuations? The jerkoff comments about people in Maine and "participation trophies?" Forget it ... guy's not worth talking to.

@Drogio I keep a small bottle of olive oil in the cupboard. I don't cook with it, it's strickly for removing CL stickers. Peel off the sticker (I use a hair blower to warm it up first), then use a Q-tip to smear some olive oil on the residue. Wipe it clean with a tissue. Works perfect and takes about 5 minutes total.

ps - I wish I had ranger buddies.

I would never by from these people just because of the Sticker. Way to much trouble trying to remove it and nor should I have to remove a proprietary sticker. I don't care for or use ANY of these big Auction Houses.

Yeah, I hate the sticker too. They should give us a rebate for free promotion

Agree with BigRed..hate the stickers...why should everyone know where I bought it which gives insight as to when and for how much....and then I have to worry about getting it off without scratching the slab unless I want to patiently keep reapplying an oil to soften it up. Why? I own the book not the auction house..they get their PR with the auction itself. put a flyer in the box and call it a day.
