I've purchased one slab from them about 6 months ago and the charge was only $12.


I usually drive in to the city and have them load up my car.

USPS can't damage my books that way.

@flanders

Nice pickup.

After pretty much everything went wrong in Baltimore yesterday, I ended up not bothering with the last day of the auction.

Allstate Motor Club is the absolute worst. The four hours they left me stranded on the highway meant no day one at the show for me.

At least I was able to pick up my vendor pass so I can get an early start Sat and Sun.

@drchaos hope the rest of the weekend treats you better. As a former Allstate employee I can confirm that they are the absolute worst.

Last one for today. This one is interesting. Al Williamson written bottom right corner. When I get it need to check whether the sig is legit.

Yeah - cannot say based on pic. It is written in pencil and is a bit vague. Will have a better idea when I hold the book.

Just won this on eBay. It will complete my Steranko cover (and interior art on 1-3 & 5) run for Nick Fury Agent of Shield (1-7). I hope this seller doesn't let me down like the last one did (I never did receive that Swamp Thing - eBay had to refund my money).

I was so busy getting books to my pressing guy for my big Rhode Island submission this weekend that I forgot all about last night's auction even though there were a couple books I was going to focus on.

Next time then.

Building on my GIJoe newsstand collection. Grabbed this last night. Description had it at an 8.0, and i got a decent price for it (plus used a $10 off coupon). It has a good spine curl, but no signs of any Spine ticks or creases other than in areas already white (no ink). Front and back appear clean.

So I took a small gamble and will see what a press can do thinking it’s a good candidate. A 9.0 would be worth the investment!

Oh, wow ... Nice catch! You know, I used to try searches with misspelled words, or using a range of numbers instead of the key issue number. But it never struck gold, and I just stopped trying. But man! Nice to know it still happens.

Only won two items tonight.

Most items I wanted went for too much.

Also, I was zonked out from attending two shows this weekend and took a nap through about half of the auction.
