Do you peeps think selling comics through an online format including ebay is a bad idea for now? Should I hold off or is now a good time to sell?

How many conventions will not be held this year and how many comic shops will go away if people don't go into them to shop?

You can't catch a virus from a package in the mail. Do your business.

But seriously, in the other thread people are saying that comics go up when the markets go down. So shouldn't it be a good time to sell now? Or at least not worse than any other time?

Not entirely true. The virus cannot live on surfaces for long, that's true - but I would still be wiping down packages and packaging for food if others have touched it still.

Selling on line is good as long as things don’t get worse and they close the post office and have quarantines in cities. Then you can sell and collect money , but have no way to send items to people

I'm more worried about banks and credit cards failing before long and we can't pay for anything.

As most of you are aware of, I am in a long term care facility after my health concerns this fall. Yesterday afternoon the head nurse came around to tell me of the changes that are in place as of this morning. I am in the rehab portion of the facility and there is a separate entrance into it. That entrance will now be locked and everyone must go through the main entrance. When visitors enter, they will have to sign in and answer a few questions. Questions like: "Have you recently traveled?", "Do you feel ill?" etc.

If things get worse in Minnesota, the place may go on lockdown. This is a Catholic affiliated center. There are a lot of elderly nuns and a few priests here. Plus your normal assortment of elderly and infirm. I do agree with them taking these precautions.

God bless my man. I hope things go well.

@Haljordanfan thanks. I am not too worried. The flu hit here a couple months ago and I got to see their quarantine procedures then. They know what they are doing. I'm more concerned about the elderly patients here.

I just had a thought, this is probably going to mean no WWE events for the near future. So no Wrestlemania in April. Plus, the start up wrestling group, All Elite Wrestling (AEW), could really be hurt by this.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

I love AEW and a couple of their main wrestlers are supposed to be in Ontario CA for a Con next month.

So, if CA has shutdown gatherings of 250 or more are places like Disneyland still open?

@sportshort Nothing is for sure yet. But I just had a thought. The WWE could probably have the matches with no or little attendance and put the shows on the WWE Network and survive a short term hiatus. But I think AEW is screwed. If they have to shut down because of this, it could mean the end for them.

I think the over-the-top fans with their posters and angry gestures are kind of an important part of the Professional Wrestling spectacle.

It depends on personal goals and whether the owner is a collector or a flipper. Buying and selling of comics is often impacted by predictable criteria totally unrelated to the rise and fall of global stocks. That said, in times of financial crisis collectibles seem to do very well overall.

If fans are discouraged from attending sporting events I’d have to assume they’re also being discouraged from congregating at staged performances.

To varying degrees, local (city and state) governments are discouraging close quarter group activities such as concerts, sporting events, church services, lines at travel terminals, crowded bars, restaurants, etc. High risk folks especially ...such as the elderly and immune suppressed individuals... are advised to be stay indoors and avoid personal contact as much as possible.

The biggest risk may be younger asymptomatic folks carrying the infection to older folks who are at greatest risk of Covid-19 exposure turning into a life threatening illness. From what information we have, this virus doesn’t behave like the flu. It’s more infectious and with no vaccine available everyone is at similar risk of infection. Note: It's telling that some middle-school aged kids have taken to calling this coronavirus "boomer remover."

Most responsible adults are self-regulating, minimizing their exposure through common sense means such as soap and water or use of alcohol based hand sanitizers. Frequent hand washing is becoming the norm.
