Thief of Thieves #1

691 views • Nov 27, '17 • (2) Comments

I haven't ordered from eBay in a LOOOOONG time- I find that I usually pay top dollar for books when I do.  I have had Thief of thieves #1 on my list of comics to own for quite some time now- I read the TPB and I enjoyed the story.  About 2 years ago, this book was super hot on eBay because Hollywood decided that they would turn this into a show.  Now that the buzz has worn off and the show deal is still in the works, I figured I would try and grab a book from an auction.  5 minutes to go an no one bid on it yet?  Starting bid was 19.99... way better than the last time I tried to pick it up!!!  As time expired, I was the only bidder and walked away with what was sold as a mint copy of #1 for $25 after shipping!!!

The comic showed up today, and looks great for the most part- except that this comic is clearly not mint.  The description read:


9.8 NM/MT

To me, that means this should be flawless.  looking at the upper right corner, you can see a triangle dog ear less than a mm- that one doesnt bother me so much.  I don't know if that would be enough to knock it down from a 9.8, but then, looking down the spine, there are a series of ticks- and 2 of them appear to break the color.  I don't know if I am being overly knit-picky here, but when a seller says things like Mint and 9.8 I don't think there should be any issues!

So what should I do in this situation?  The book isnt perfect by any means, but this wasn't a million dollar comic.  What do you think of these spine ticks?

  • It cost $25.00. I can understand that you are disappointed but I would be happy I got a great comic for that price. Michael

    • I sent a message to the seller to that effect- that it is great and I know I got a great deal, but that it wasn't 9.8 M as stated. They guy was very nice and wanted to make it right- he issued me a partial refund and everyone was happy!
