Re: Needs to be said....Dinesh is one of the classiest i've ever encountered.

You are correct in saying that your encounter with Dinesh is one that many of us have had through out the years with him. He bends over backwards for fans. All I can say is wait until you meet him (and I highly suggest you attempt to make that happen). He has non-stop energy, and will talk to you al...

Re: New Valiant CGC 9.8s for sale!

I bought “The Valiant” #1 1:100 CGC 9.8, “The Valiant” #2 and #3 1:50 CGC 9.8s, and Book of Death #3 Sound of Thunder CGC 9.8 SS. Whoever got “The Valiant” #4 1:50 got a great deal on a key first appearance book. I have that one already and am happy to have filled in with other variant issues to wh...

Re: CGC Signature Series Sketches on Blank Covers

I've done this once, but with a signature series book, and it was quite similar to what Devilsrain said. The one thing I would add is make sure the artist gives basic information (phone number, address, etc) as they will try and contact them. I did this with Kekai Kotaki (X-O #15 1:50), and I was ve...

There will be some ebay sales here coming up this weekend (Sunday - Sunday), if I can remember, I will post them here. Thinking Greg walked away with a prize the other day, such a great pick-up on that X-O #25 variant! Think a simple cleaning/press makes that book a 9.8!

That X-O Manowar story from Dysart... Such a good one-shot! All the feels of a Dysart book, has to be #1

I've been really enjoying the Rai story, it's been very solid. His internal conflict between AI and Human is intriguing.

Like a “limited edition” kind of thing although I can’t find any current info. However, it seems like ...

Re: Rarest Bloodshot Comic book?

About all I know regarding this book, is that these books were beat up when sent out. Very few shipped with care, so the one or two 9.8's will sell for a pretty penny. No clue about print run, except whatever it might have been, they sold out. Again though, they were beat up when shipped, so if that...

From what I can remember, Valiant had a CGC witness at the time, and they worked out a deal with CGC that they could be signed and stamped (I think they were stamped), and sent out to the retailers and would be accepted by CGC up until a specific date. All books that were produced were signed and wi...

I'd add the X-O Manowar Humble Bundle "Unsigned" to your list. While we don't have a print run number on those, you can check CGC and see that there are two blue lable and two sig series (yellow label) that are out there.

They exist.
