1.  :takeit:  in thread trumps PM conversations.

2. In the case of multiple PMs, or take its, I will go by time stamp. 

3. no HoS/probation people please. I'm Crimebuster, not Crimeenabler

4. shipping is FREE to the U.S., or $25 to Canada. Any import fees to Canada to be paid by the recipient. I wish this was easier, but they have made things real messy to ship up to Canada. 

5. Paypal for books under $1k - check for books over $1k

6. please pay promptly, I have a crimefighting monkey sidekick to feed

7. If there's any kind of issue with the books, let me know within one week of receiving it and we can figure out some kind of return. But I don't anticipate any issues!

SOLD

Ghost Rider #1

5.5 (?) - $475

This is a really nice copy of Ghost Rider #1 from 1973. It looks and feels like an 8.0. However, it has three small pin holes above the logo, in "supernatural superhero." This makes it a little hard to grade, but fot technical reasons I'm going to knock it down to a 5.5 and price it accordingly. You won't see a nicer looking copy in this range!

Wow Comics #38

6.0 - $1400 shipped

First, for this book, I'd prefer to be paid by check rather than PayPal. 

I bought this here on the boards about nine years ago. The boardie who sold it to me had it at a 6.5, I'm going to say 6.0 to be conservative. It has slight tanning. Small patch of paper loss back cover. 

A copy that was around a 4.5 sold a little while ago on ebay for around $830. Prior to that, another copy that was much lower grade, a 2.5 with terribly rusty staples, also sold for about the same price. I'm going with my gut as this is an all-time classic that you don't see all that often.

I waffled for an hour on this :takeit: before someone else does and I regret it.

Journey Into Mystery #103

3.5 - $300

There's a small spine split at the bottom, though it's just slightly off the spine itself so it's a little more like a tear I guess. 

Colors are great for the grade!

A couple small water spots on lower fc, some slight water damage ripples middle right edge bc.

SOLD!

Lobo #1

2.5 - $100

In addition to what you can see in the pictures, the middle three wraps or so are detached from the staples. From my limited experience with this comic, it seems to be a pretty common defect. Book is complete though.

That's it for tonight, but I have three more batches of comics coming. You can let me know which one you want me to do next: a batch of low grade Bronze Age keys (MP 15, HfH 1, etc.), a couple of random lower grade Golden Age books (including Sensation 66), or a group of romance books (including Baker, Cole, and a Lichtenstein key).

Whatever it is, I'll try and have the next group up some time tomorrow. 

Thanks everyone!
