Collector poka private msg quote post Address this user
Next flash sale - Next Sunday May 12th 2nd at 8pm EST

After the success of the previous sale this will be another charity sale where 100% of the proceeds will go to https://www.worldlandtrust.org/donate for the first $133 to benefit jaguars in Belize and remaining funds will go to https://www.rainforesttrust.org/projects/safeguarding-snow-leopard-lakes-of-the-himalayas-2/ to benefit snow leopards in Nepal.

As usual - the receipts of the donated proceeds will be uploaded to this post subsequently.

--------------

The flash sale will contain titles starting with N through S. it will be a mix of modern regular, variants and older stuff.

The free giveaway this time will be a big one - TEC #1000 Ross cover (currently selling for $170!). For the same reason this time the winner will be chosen through a draw but there will be a different free title for the fast one

T&C:

First person who claims a lot buys it. You need to clearly indicate which lot you are claiming by either stating the name of the lot or replying to the picture.

During the sale a free comic will be offered, the first buyer who replies to the picture gets it. Note - you do need to reply to the picture - anything else will not count. In order to qualify to claim the comic you will need to have bought beforehand during the sale by the time the comic is offered. In addition, a free comic - TEC 1000 Ross - will be given through a draw (drawing rules will be providing during the week)

Shipping will be done from Hong Kong. Most packages will reach their destination within 7-10 days. I will charge actual. For US expect $4.95 for the first 2 comics (not lots) and $0.75 for each subsequent comic. For other locations - let me know and I will you an estimate. For lots with multiple comics I will reduce the shipping cost as much as possible.

Payment is via PayPal. Please wait paying until invoiced.

Any purchases can be returned at buyer’s cost within 14 days of receipt.

Any items not sold during the Flash sale will be available to buy for 1-2 days

See you next Sunday.

Those are great causes to donate too. I actually have a portion of my life insurance as a donation to the World Wildlife Federation. I think it is 25%. I am very passionate about wildlife preservation. Thanks for the heads up!

Currently trying to decide to either just donate or "adopt" a Manatee.
My son is 11 so maybe 'adopt', we have done it before and it was neat to get what I'm sure is personalized updates on our manatee - they also have GPS on them so you can see where they are day to day and their winter migrations.

The reasons I chose those two charities is because they work towards conservation of nature and by default - hopefully the wildlife living there.

As in picking a name from a hat? Google 'random name picker' and you'll have your choice of places where you can type in a list of buyer's usernames and it will split one back out for you. But maybe you have a different idea in mind?

The Belize fundraising has been fully funded.

https://www.worldlandtrust.org/news/2019/05/1818-acres-saved/

This means that all proceeds will go to the safeguarding snow leopards in Nepal project.

Unrelated but it reminds me of a story.

My instructor was lazy as hell. For exams he was dreading grading exams. I told him to use scantrons. He said what's that? Nevermind. If you do the scantrons for me, your exempt from exam. Instant A.

More useless info. It was at s state university. And it was in FL. Lol

ok - these are the details of the draw of the TEC1000 Ross cover.

anyone who make a guess before sales starts, buys within the sale and up to 12 hours after the sale starts are included in the draw.

1. make a guess of the total $ the sale will generate - the person who gets closest (must buy during the sale) will get 3 entries (1 guess per person)
2. any person who buys at the sale will get 1 entry
3. if buying for more than $75 - you will get 1 additional entry for each $75
4. for each 10 lots purchased - you will get 1 additional entry for each 10 lots


example:
1. you buy for $74 or less and less that 10 lots - 1 entry
2. you buy for $75 and less than 10 lots - 2 entries
3. you buy 10 lots - 2 entries
4. you buy 20 lots - 3 entries
5. you buy $150 and 10 lots - 4 entries ( 1 for buying, 2 per $75, 1 per 10 lot)

any questions let me know

ok - pre-sale competition - person who gets closest gets 3 additional entries in the draw (guess will only be counted if the person buys during the sale)

1 guess per person and must be done before the sale starts

simply answer this question

how much $ will the sale generate?

Not knowing how many books you're going to sell or how valuable they are, I'll take a flailing stab at it and say $1,750.
