Forgot about this one now that I have a 9.8 grade of both 87 & 98 thinking of putting my 9.6 set up for sale.

@Batman66 It just came on my radar today, but I'd have interest in something in a 3.0-5.0 if you eventually let one go.

@EbayMafia 3 is probably the highest grade I have now, lol. I screwed up, a guy on Facebook was selling a graded 6.0 for 500, I offered 400, he said he would come down to 450, I offered 425, then he changed his mind about selling it. I should of paid the 500 😭

@00slim I heard about the rumor of blue beetle a couple of years ago, a bought a handful of cover A&B 9.8 candidates for a couple of bucks a piece. I kind of forgot about the rumor until recently. Now I'm glad I picked them up. Picked up a couple of copies of captain atom 83,84, blue beetle 1's as well. Posted recently an eBay auction I paid 60 for the lot

I've had some pretty big books come in recently (at least big books for me). The Uncanny X-Men 266 I submitted to CGC for the Claremont/Rubinstein signing. I never imagined it would come back with a 9.8.

@HairlessWookiee Great books!

You might want to crop the X-Men 94. That company’s slabs are banned from the forum (seriously).

I'd like to say I still turned out alright, but that would be a lie. flanders private msg quote post Address this user
I was able to complete this set recently. Wolverine 1 was one of my first purchases as a kid and the most money I spent on a comic until I became an adult.

@Batman66 Nowadays I feel like if anything is a reasonable price just buy it before it gets more expensive. Not just comics, but the world in general...nothing is going to get cheaper. Besides, don't you have a little dog that pops out Thousand Dollar bills every now and again? Got any update photos of the Frenchie Fries?

Sweet. Making me nostalgic for the 80's. That foursome has a nice combination of art and colors when seen together.

Been on the hunt for a high grade copy of this book for a while now. Always loved the Crime Syndicate. First SA appearance of Starman is a bonus.

So pleased with this I'm going to drop it in this thread too!!!

Did I go over what I wanted to pay = yes!
do I feel wronged by that =no!!!!

Lets say 25yrs ago when I was in my early 20's I found this antique place a few towns away that also had comics and magazines and they also had just the covers from comics for a few bucks - I have this comic but only the cover (a few others too that I need to dig out - maybe get the actual books!?)
Anyway..have wanted a copy for a long time, this is apparently rated a 7 on the scarcity index but now this beauty is mine!!

Heritage is calling this a 4 and I think that's fair (some staining on the back)
People can chase their ratio variants all day long...I will take this with only 17 on the CGC census...need to see if any on the CBCS..I know in the next few years this one will at least be on the CBCS list!!

Picked up a fox giant off heritage a couple years ago, only one in cgc is 5.0 restored.

Sent my copy into cbcs

Came back 5.0 unrestored. So only one there.

So yeah send that rare book in to be graded by cbcs 👍

@Batman66 Thanks! High grade of this book just doesn't show up often. Been on the hunt for a few years now and jumped on this one as soon as I saw it.

Love the Rogues Gallery! Despite what many sites say, Flash 130 is not their first appearance as a team, this book is.

Finally bought some cheaper things, been awhile. The first one is a miniature someone created. What is cool about it is the comic inside is perfect, all the interior pages are exactly like the real comic, in miniature. Get the feeling CGC didn’t get a cut.

Odds and ends part 3. Bought these recently for cheap. A few are low grade readers, but all are interesting to me.
