Yeah, trading up, especially if you are not a dealer and don't have an established eBay selling account with followers etc, don't set up at cons, you will make out pretty good.

Downside being that you will give up much more in FMV.

I actually want to do this, myself.

Give up all of my convention stock, all og my alphabetical/numerical orginized $2, $3, $5, $10 stock...all bagged/boarded (mostly in mylite2's and full backs,all the $10th are, half of my $5's, rest are in regular BCW poly bags with 2-3 boards per bag. )

Basically an instant stock for doing shows and eBay, if you want to pull out the cherry $10's, which are often $15+ shipping BIN's on eBay.

Hell, I would take .25 cents on the dollar in trade, don't even need mega keys.

As long as I get raws and slabs that are worth $50 or more...I'll take a beating in a trade.

I'll be set up at the VA Comic Con next month (vacomiccon.com), if anyone wants to take my booth (all table booxes of $2, $3, $5, $10 books, not my wall and my 2 priced as marked books/sets) in trade, shoot me a PM.

Give me a [b]quarter on the dollar
of my already discounted $2, $3, $5, $10 sticker in trade towards books that are worth $50 and up (at eBay sold prices for raws and 90 day average GPA for slabs), shoot me a PM.

You can take over my booth (6 foot table) right away (with 16 short boxes of organized stock), at VA Comic Con, as soon as I get your books.👌👍

The spot is already paid for, Liefeld is the headliner, he will be there both days.As will CBCS, there will be CGC SS facilitators present as well.

I plan to do this one day.

Set up at a Con & sell what I can, then sell the rest on e-bay for an AF 15.Or see a about a cash + trade for the rest at a shop.

The FMV has gone crazy for that book. A 4.0 was $10k a few years ago. It has doubled since.

I traded a short box of 90's Valiant for my AF #15 just before the market collapsed. The retailer made his money back the same day, so it was a good trade for him also.

Not only did I pick up the AF15 - also was able to grab the Hulk! As soon as I get back to the house I’ll add pics.

Good decision in my opinion.

I love reading stories like this. Thanks for sharing, @Stu.

I look forward to this sort of trade in the future. It will allow me to start over & prioritize.

Awesome pick ups. You must have had some really nice books in those boxes for the dealer to make the trade.

yes, it’s surreal at the moment. Pleased I was able to obtain the two books - still working on the rest of my collection with my LCS. Still have some books to go over and see what they will do for the rest. There are a few other books I’d like to pick up as well.

CONGRATS!

I would do the same if I had the opportunity. I'm not certain what grade the AF15 would need to be in, making the swap attractive, but I would do it.

All the LCS that I go to do not have those 2 key books let alone 1 of them. They must have a really nice back selection. Congrats Stu.

I am confused at your statement. "Don't set up at cons, you will make out pretty good" that does not make sense. It also looks like your desperate to get rid of your books in the following post. Have you lost interest?
