    Silver Age is okay, but much more expensive that late Bronze and Copper to buy. Due to acquisition costs, the late BA and CA books/collections generate a higher ROI right now IMHO.

    I always think of Silver Age and earlier as a keep and hold type of investment and look at Copper/Modern as buy and flip

    Bronze is a little of both

    eBay sales have been sporadic and mostly selling with offers, as opposed to the stated buy it now price

  2. Interesting thread , makes you think

    I always hoped my son or daughter would have some interest and take over the collection one day. This will apparently not happen!

     

    I like the idea of a trusted board member available to contact and if negotiated in advance, handling the liquidation of the comics.

    My fear would be that my wife or kids would end up selling the whole thing to a shop for pennies on the dollar.

    I bet I am close to the 80/20 rule (20% of my collection has 80% of the value) Having someone that could pull the big ticket items and handle the sale and then figure out what to do with the remainder would be worth quite a lot.

     

    I think I need to contact some local boardies about arranging this to happen

  3. Nomination for Dimebag_D to the PL.

     

    I posted a :takeit: on some books in a thread that he had back in July (7/11). Forgot about the books, but he finally invoiced for them at the end of October (10/25). :o

     

    I paid the next morning (10/26) with paypal. He told me the books would ship on the next day (10/27).

     

    I followed up on 11/16 when I had yet to see them. He responded the next day that he was printing the labels and that they would go out the next day (11/17).

     

    Two PM's since then have went unanswered, including one two days ago about taking it to the PL thread. doh!

     

    PP dispute opened.

     

    Seems like a nice enough person, but a quick search shows that this is multiple instances. (shrug)

     

     

    I have a similar issue with him. Bought a bunch of stuff 6 weeks ago, never arrived. He has not been answering PMs...

     

    My experience with DIMEBAG_D is the same

    Sent payment 11-1 no books as of the 16th

    He responded to a pm that they would go out tomorrow (the 17th)

    No response to email or PM and I have opened a paypal dispute

    He has also not responded to that complaint so I wait on paypal

  6. I want to thank everyone for their feedback/input on this matter, but I need to change the subject . I know that this is off-topic, but then again, it is more on-topic than you may know or feel.

     

    I started this post yesterday as a way to blow off steam for what I viewed as a slight by the artist in question. You know what? It really doesn't matter. It doesn't matter at all.

     

     

    I had a friend get killed in an automobile accident in Arizona on Monday. We worked together for over six years and we had our ups and downs. Unfortunately, one of our downs was right before he left the company about a year and a half ago. He went to work for a company out of San Antonio and they sent him to a project in Show Low, Arizona. He was on his way to work, with two other men, when an on-coming car crossed the center line. The cars hit head on and he was killed instantly. The front passenger is in a coma and the rear passenger had both of his legs broken. We found out about the accident on Tuesday morning as they had to identify the next of kin. His wife called here to tell us, and my heart sank. All I could think about were his three small girls. We knew that his wife was pregnant with his fourth daughter, but he never got to see her. His wife gave birth on the day that he was killed. I guess I have been in a sort of shock this week and have not been trying to think about it so much. Last night that all changed.

     

    I drove to the funeral home last night to see him and to attend the rosary. It was out of town so I got a little lost on the way and ended up getting there 5 minutes late. I snuck in the back so as not to disturb anyone in the family. I was looking but could not see anyone in the family. I saw alot of the guys I work with as they were scattered around the room. Once the rosary was over, people slowly started making their way to the front to pay their respects at the casket. I waited awhile to let other people go. When it was my turn, I finally saw where all of his family was....they were in an alcove that blocked their view from everyone else. Once I saw his wife and kids, I started crying. I couldn't have stopped if I wanted to. In his casket were two pictures that his girls had drawn and they had written a letter to him.

     

    Writing this is hard guys....i'm sorry if i ramble. I am crying as I type this.

     

    Their letter told him how much they would miss him and that they hoped he had fun. His girls are 10, 4, 2 and a week old. His wife had a look of intense pain on her face and I felt embarassed to be there. I felt like I was intruding and did not know what to say. She called me by name and thanked me for coming and hugged my neck for a long time. All I kept saying to her was that I was sorry....so sorry. When I looked at her face, all I could see was my wife's face and my kids sitting there. What if that was me lying up there. I feel so much hurt for his family. I know he is in a better place, but his girls are going to grow up not knowing their dad. He loved his girls. I know that. He used to bring them to the office and I saw them grow up just like mine. He loved his girls.

     

     

    All of this stuff about my artwork is just that.....stuff. It doesn't matter. Last night was a hard slap in the face to me. Iron fisted hard. I don't care about it. All I care about are my girls and my family. Noone should have to pass at age 32, but it happens. It doesn't make it easy though. I want all of you to hug your loved ones today and tell your kids how much you love them. They are all that matters.

     

    In an earlier post i said you live and learn. I learned alot last night once the realization came home to me that my friend was truly gone. Hopefully we all get the chance to live an learn for a long time.

     

    God bless you Ryan and keep you safe.

    Man that is a sad sad tale and it really puts out minor problems in perspective. I am sorry for you and for his wife and his little girls

    This really got to me

    " His wife gave birth on the day that he was killed"

    That is messed up!

    They gonna be OK? Did he make preparations? They need any help?

    By the way, compressed air falls in the same league as bottled water to me, useless.

     

    It's great for cleaning dirt and dust bunnies out of your computer. I did that recently and it ran much better.

     

    Try putting the computer on its side and repeatedly bang it on the desk. Problem solved and compressed air saved for "other uses"

     

    :signfunny:

     

    the harder you bang the cleaner it gets!
