I dropped a bit more than usual on comics this week.
As I do every other week, I went to the local flea market again. Much like every other week, same guys selling the same comics. However, I noticed a guy had a new stack on his table- with some comics in mylars. I was excited to find something new, so I headed over and started searching!
The vast majority of his new stock was low to mid grade early Daredevil issues. Prior to this, I had a couple of keys in the vol 1 run, but no issues under number 102. In all, the pile had 40 Daredevil issues, with lower grade copies of 11,12, and 13, plus a smattering of decent mid to higher grade issues up through 138. Someone had clearly gone through the stack and pulled all the good keys, but I figured it might be a chance to get a deal on a bundle of older books- Daredevil doesn't usually fetch the highest prices, so I decided to take a chance.
