Looking for the following in case anyone wants to deal. My reference for fair pricing is “adjusted” auction (HA, ebay, CL etc). The adjustment is simple - splitting the difference of what the buyer and seller are paying to the sites (eg for HA would be transacted price divided by 1.1). This gives a sense of where I would be. If raw books then a discount, of course.


Here are the books and grade ranges I am looking for - (are all under 8.0 with minimums below):
* Detective Comics 225 (4.0+)
* Superman 30 (5.0+)
* Adv Comics 283 (5.0+)
* Superboy 68 (5.0+ but strongly prefer 6.0+)
* AC 252 (5.0+)
* SC 22 (4.0+)
* JLA 1 (5.0+)

Unlikely to close a deal fast but keeping eyes open:
* BB 28 (any grade <6)
* AC 23 (any grade <7)
* SC 4 (any grade <6)

For all of the above I am not saying I would necessarily do a deal but I have been actively looking … so if you are considering selling, perhaps we can strike a deal!

@beastboy1980 thanks.

Making lists is the easy part though. I am kicking myself for not buying another SC4 a few weeks ago on HA. Just couldnt stomach the thought the seller and I could have struck a better deal without that 20%… I just don’t get the massive fees for facilitating sales on graded books…

JLA 1 is now off the list.

My “priority” list is now Supes 30 and Tec225… both of which I thought I was close only to be foiled by unrealistic seller expectations haha

@Davethebrave Have you checked out Myslabs.com? The inventory is minimal and anything priced competitively sells pretty fast. But the seller fee is only 1% and the there is no sales tax obligation if you and the seller are in different states.

Definitely - if I recall last I checked they didnt have much inventory and what was there… lots of “spam” listings like reprints for big $$$ etc

@KatKomics I have been working on a B&B at a higher grade. If that falls through will widen my search.

Okay so Superman 30 is off the list. Leaves just Tec 225 as a “priority” find for the near term.

What grade did you get the Superman 30 in if you don’t mind divulging?

Also, what grades are you interested in the 225?

@Haljordanfan will update on Superman 30 in next few days.

Tec 225 I am looking at 4.5-5.5 graded and wont consider ungraded because of price points. Plenty of options online but at price points that are seeing the books sit. It is a key I want but not willing to pay over my interpretation of market. I think my market view is accurate given how I am tracking sales or lack thereof…

I ended up diverting more time to another bunch of books instead.

Let me correct on tec225 - I would consider ungraded from a highly reputable seller but not from broad searching…

Well it is a raw copy as I couldn’t get the ones listed to deal at my version of “market”…

It has a bad spine roll but I had some time to inspect it on delivery and think it can be corrected as paper seems really nice overall and staples appear secure. Probably could grade in 2.5-5.0 range after correction but who knows? I am okay with any grade as it is more for completion than anything. Happy with how it presents even with its heavy flaws…

Tec225 may just wait at this point. Will be watching it closely and still at the 5.0 or so target level…
