Awesome!

@circumstances @Sagii you both have really awesome collections. Distinguished tastes if you will. I only have a handful of comics that I would consider cool, but I scroll through this thread and it just leaves me in awe. Not just in awe of the books, but the passion you both bring to the collections. It's very cool, so by all means "keep 'em coming".

@Sagii Ok, bear with me a second.

I wasn't familiar with Centaur comics before this thread. I'd heard of them, but I never really researched them.


Sorry for exposing you to all this Centaur goodness!!


LOL!! I'm enjoying it!!! I enjoy comics and I enjoy learning new things. This thread is a winner in my book!!!

Thanks!

I remember when I saw a Centaur (Amazing Mystery Funnies Vol. 2 #7) for the first time in a full color picture in my first Overstreet Price Guide (#6, 1976), I was hooked!

A Top 3 Centaur, a classic and elusive issue anyway you look at it, and oh so costly to obtain a copy.

I would love to get a Centaur book but they are rare here and the last one I saw was WAAAAAAAY over priced. (The person had the USD tag on it and then added CAD exchange and mark up so that a book that was probably on the low end of the VG ranges was priced at a fine. So like three or four times the USD price. The funny thing is it was NOT a brick and mortar seller and if it had that price in a brick and mortar I'm fairly certain this person would complain about the pricing. That's the way it works here, complain about the brick and mortar prices and the store in general only because they are selling a book for market prices. Meaning that that basement seller can't flip it right away for a profit. That's how it is here stores get dragged through the mud trying to profit off market demand. They will also claim that it isn't the stated grade.)

BTW nice books everyone!

@Oxbladder Thanks!
Well don't lose faith and stay patient: Many times the stars align and something comes your way at a price you can live with and a grade you're ok with.
