@SecondBlight , did you ever think .......... ( that should keep him in bed for the next 4 days with a migraine :gossip: )

For the rest of you .... familiar with the ‘iceberg theory’? You see the 10% above water - if you saw the other 90%, an iceberg would take on a completely different size, shape, SOPHISTICATION and complexity. A peak at me “below the water line”. I collect ( in part / with passion! ) factory sealed Comics, and Sportscards - all either key issues, Rookies, Origins, etc etc - all with limited / preferably  loooooow production numbers. Over time, this population of sealed items will ALWAYS get smaller, as Collectors can’t wait to tear open that packaging, and grade those items. Well... you can open a sealed bag to grade a comic, but you can never “ungrade” it, and seal it back in the bag! Now... I ALSO collect some pretty sweet, non-bagged, KEY Moderns that I DON’T post here — only post a small percentage ~~ iceberg!
Pics- some of my recent “factory sealed” eBay purchases ...

Did a bit of speculating lol

Been a long time if ever since I did so, but my LCS celebrating 30 years had nice prices! I guess supporting them is "an" excuse ...

3 Batman beyond #25's

2 Batman beyond #37's (1 reg & 1variant)

$20 for #37? Damn

what I thought was a kick in the pants, was I was in this LCS around when it came out, saw the cover and thought "surely she's appeared before!" and didn't pick it up ......

I was too focused on the sales appearing this month....

Damn unlucky, I picked it up just for the cover :)

My LCS only ordered in a handful and they were for call orders only, if they had more I'm sure it would be selling for $40 now haha. They have upped the price for #25 to $23 which is just crazy to me.

I got #25 for $6.99 as you can see, a comfortable price also for #37 too... imo

They seemed to order these out the wazoo! As they have some left!

If this isn’t a slam dunk 🏀 CGC 9.8 after pressing 📚, then I give up! :pullhair: ... and I’m switching to Stamp Collecting  (and I HATE Stamps!:tonofbricks:)

I get the feeling you like blowing money...alot of money....on "hot" "hyped" modern books, without a grasp on how the modern market works.

Aren't you just a ray of sunshine. :eyeroll:

P.S. "alot" is not a word.

My moderns are pretty much down to Spawn, Usagi Yojimbo & Dr. Aphra...

The last 6 weeks have been maddening for Spawn  :pullhair:   I started ordering with Things From Another World, joined a Facebook group, and still miss so much of what's released.

Ross B&W exclusive.  Also have the Crain virgin exclusive coming in ~2 weeks.

The 302 d & e covers were solicited late & not avail for preorder on TFAW. Had to buy these off the Fb group.

Seems like about half of collectors missed these. (shrug)

Bought a nice lot of 40 NM Marvel Angela books off FeeBay (85c shipped each). Digital downloads unpopped.

Also included Original Sin 5.1-5.5, Asguardians ot Galaxy 1-10, Asgard's Assassin 1-6

Only buying books from TFAW is your first mistake.  There's Westfield, Graham Cracker, Midtown, Ebay....I could keep going....

Got these 2 for local comic shop day, as far as I was told the New Mutants #1 is very limited, my LCS was only able to order in 1 copy, they were also the only ones participating in the LCS day so this could possibly be the only one in the country at the moment :) I did queue there early to make sure I was first in line to choose, no way I was letting that one get away.
