Re: VEI's December 2020 Solicitations

I notice that it is X-O maniwar cover A, B, C and an incentive cover and Rai cover A and B.

Are the pre-order bundles all finished now or did they just not list the pre-order covers.

(Although usually people use random number generators these days). I have never participated in one but have been around gro...

Re: Want to buy Valiant (V1) CGC 9.8

Michael: Thanks for the link. That seller frequently has valiant common issues slabbed but usually wants $100 to $225 for them so rarely sells any until they have sat their for half a year and he is willing to sell them for $50 a book. For these books I'll get in touch with him in half a years time.
