Okay here goes.... Quite a few years ago I saw a ad on Craiglist for 6000 to 8000 comic books. I email the person and ask him what kind of comics they were, he told me there was a number of different brands.. Marvel, DC, Image, Dark horse and others. I asked him why he was selling them and if they were in good condition. He goes on to tell me they are all in NM to Mint condition and that was all he knew. He then tells me they were his uncles that had own a comic store in Minnesota and that he had passed away and he was they one the uncle left them too. He sent me some pics of the comics and they looked great. He even offered to delivar them to me which was a 3 hour one way trip. Now... here it comes.... when he arrivied, he had told me that this is a sight unseen sale, but he would let me look in a couple of boxes. So I looked at the two boxes I could get to and they looked great.. So after unloading them and paying the guy $1000.00.... he leave and I start going through the boxes...........Well out of that many comics I ended up with 3000 to 4000 of comics I kepted for myself... all the rest are double, tripes, quadruplts, and a lot have 10 to 20 of the same issue number....and they are Valiant, Image, Dark Horse and other brands.. Now I have sold a lot on Ebay and at garage sale that I have had but still have a large amount.....


Now here is the help I need...... Should I keep these and add them to my piles here on CBR or not even bother... I now some are going up in a little value...Like some of the Valiants.... Here is an example of what I'm dealing with..

Okay... this probally sounds stupid...but how many of you have problems with your Post Office opening packages sent Media Mail to you. I have argued and argued with my post office about this rule they have...and about opening my mail. They say any mail shipped media mail can be open for inspection and they say that any book that is NOT educational or has advertisment in them is not allow to be shipped media mail. They even showed me that rule in there books.

Is this happening to anyone else???????

Best Offer On Ebay... LOL

1872 views • Jan 7, '17 • (2) Comments

This just cracks me up.......  You have a seller that lists comics on Ebay.... they have a buy it now or best offer.....

Take for instands.....  4 comics with sellers grading of 6.5 for each one.. Okay, you look up how much they are worth at this grade.... There value is $3.00 each.... So you send a best offer that is $0.99 less than they are selling at Buy It Now price.... Then they turn around and send you a counter offer that is $0.50 less than their Buy It Now price.... LOL..... First off... dude your charging me $8.00 for Media Mail shipping... get a life... COMIC BOOKS CAN NOT BE SHIPPED MEDIA MAIL .... Plus I gave them best offers on other listings they had and what do you know.... Same thing, more counter offers....

LOOK.... If you put a counter offer on your listing... and its not a huge counter offer price difference .... DUDE... Its a sell.... accept it.... if you don't want to take offers.... then don't put a Best Offer on your listing.......

Sorry to everybody if this sounds rude..... I'm just venting.....

  Carrie Fisher, the actress who gave us the iconic character of Princess Leia, has died. She had a massive heart attack on Friday, December 23, 2016 on a flight from London to LAX. She had been rushed to a nearby hospital for treatment. Fisher died on Tuesday, December 27. She was 60 years old. “She was loved by the world and she will be missed profoundly,” her daughter Billie Lourd said. “Our entire family thanks you for your thoughts and prayers.” She became beloved by geek culture as Princess Leia Organa in the original Star Wars trilogy and then for reprising the role as General Leia for The Force Awakens in 2015.
   Fisher had many popular supporting roles and memorable cameos in other movies and as a writer she helped improve popular movie scripts. She also wrote about her life, dealing with mental health issues, and addiction in several books. Members of the Star Wars family and many other celebrities have taken to Twitter and social media outlets to express their grief.
