Mike Carbo is the man, he is literally the hardest working comic convention promoter that I have ever met.... why ya gotta break his balls, brah?

Regarding the pic you posted, if I owned those books, they would not be displayed on a free standing comic wall.They'd be under lock and key, like Carbo had them on display.

Also, Carbo primarily attends or sets up at shows to promote his Big Apple, Eternal Con and NY WinterCon shows....not to sell books.He sells online and by appointment, at his office/warehouse in NY.

Nope, Rogofsky was one of the biggest mail order dealers back in the 60's thru 80's, you have no idea

...I went to that sale, scored a couple of BA and SA keys, at very fair prices.

Not breaking balls dude. If anything, the fact that comics like that were on display like that, is a testament to who he is (like its no big deal to him). If it were me I'd have bought the most flashy display I could possibly find lol, cause I'll never own comics such as those 👌🏻

@shrewbeer Even though the display was bland and did not do the books justice, they are much safer in the display case than up on a wall display. Too many sticky fingers at these shows. And I don't mean the Rolling Stones Sticky fingers lol.

Oh hell I'm not saying to put it out in the open. It was just shocking to stand next to a 7.0 action1 in a plain display like that right out front like it was any other nice book.

I suppose I just had it in my head that If I ever saw a 7.0 action on display the heavens would open a nice sunbeam down and there would be a pile of fkng diamonds and glitter sprinkled all over that shit 😆😆
