Re: Undervalued Gems

It's not that the art is worth more or that slabs are worth more or that real estate is worth more or that the stock market it worth more. It is that cash (pick your currency) is worth less so asset values are ballooning. The Fed, BoJ, ECB, etc are printing money like mad. Unfortunately only a very...

Re: Discuss Hard To Find Or Currently Hot Comics Of Any Era

There are more than 500 hard core Spawn collectors. Strangely, only about 200 of them know about Spawn #1 newsstand. :lol: What do you mean? It was sort of a "back-of-the-envelope" thought that if a new variant sells for $710 then the Spawn #1 newsstand selling for around 40% of that price might in...

Re: Does CGC know how to grade?

Generally they are softer by Age, starting from Golden Age and up, look at 9.4 GA or SA book and then compared to CA or MA, crazy.

Re: How to sell Magic cards

Wheel of Fortune used to be a $5 to $10 card for nearly 20 years and then it jumped and its between $300 to $400. There is common stuff worth money in lots, like 4x Priests of Tatania from Urza's Saga. They are commons and playsets sell from $30 to $40.

Re: How to sell Magic cards

Some cards from that time are worth staggering money Gaea's cradle as example. I would go to card kingdom and check their prices, easier than ebay as you can search by set. If you want pm, me, I can give you my cell number and give a list to cut down on the time for you looking through stuff.

Re: Question about cgc tier system, which tier???

Sometimes they do not upcharge you. A few years ago I sent in multiple Harbinger #1's and 3 or 4 came back at 9.8 and they did not charge me the higher price tier fee.

Re: G.I. Joe art recommendation

You could try David Michael Beck, he did some nice painted covers on the Image Joe run in the early 2000's. Here is a link to his art dealer:

Re: The Bloodshot movie...what would have happened

I think the budget was rather high considering Valiant is not a household name. I think more traditional effects could have been used, and a cheaper up and coming star could have been cast in the main role. I'm not trying to *SQUEE* on the movie, as I do like it, just my thoughts.

Re: Who won the EW 27 9.8 VVSS?

Assuming the seller knew it was the only 9.8, you think they would have put it up for a buy it now to control the total amount.

Best Way to Ship Multiple CGC Books

Hey guys, going to be selling some sets of CGC books and I've never had to ship mutiple in one box. What is the safest, most economical way? Any odd priority boxes that I can use?

Re: CGC Grading - Rai #0 slides into 2nd place behind Spawn #1

I am surprised Saga hasn't been submitted in a higher quantity. I remember you being able to buy very large quantities of it on eBay when or right before it was released from a number of sellers. I wonder how many of them still have hundreds if not thousands of copies.

Is Geoff Johns still a creative force there? He might not be bad as publisher or they should try and get Karen Burger back. Why they ever left her leave is beyond me.

Re: How is this CGC 8.5?

CGC IHMO grades the different era's based on a different set of standards and allows more defects for grades on the older eras. If that was a copper age or modern age book it would be something crazy like a 7.0.
