Wow, your Mary Jane and Sniffles is in amazing shape! Is there a story behind it?

Only that it's my third try to get a decent copy, it took me years of looking to find ANY copy.

Then MCS screwed up on their listing, I suspect.  I think they meant to call it an 8.0... which is pretty much the highest grade I ever see them give an unslabbed book... but it got listed as a 5.0.  I grabbed it fast when I saw it.

My undercopies.  The Looney Tunes thread has dubbed the first one the "Sniffles chewed" copy.

priced and entered the 300's and 200's.  now up to 1201 with "costs"  entered.   FOr these columns I had to enter way more than I had previously  entered  and raised the average  costs significantly,  I found missing books like 386 which I had won off ebay  well prior to my actually collecting the series.  Still one of my favorite covers and likely my first slab purchases  with a PLOD 6.0.  Even with this  the average continued to fall , but only  down to 45.31.  I am projecting  that the additions in the first series  and first 200  of the second  will actually increase the average

 

 

coming across many from current or former board members  Reality Consensus, Catrick , fiberbisket, Honky Cat,  ft88, and House of COmics.  All of these trades were totally by mail and email and each of which resulted in the addition of 26+ books 

 

Included below is one of the lowest grade books.  It has been on my upgrade list since I first created it.  Still have to thank shark for plugging  the 228 hole

Just got this bright beauty in the mail today. Actually, #1 and the last one I needed. Great to be able to find something so fun and so cheap!

So you're the one who outbid me on that book on ebay...:pullhair:  I wouldn't have bid if I'd seen those creases at the top right.  The seller conveniently blurred those out... :whatthe:

Hi All-

 

I hope your year end is going well. This week Heritage is auctioning off my Santa/Frosty related issues. While overall my books have been going at a pretty good price there is always at least one issue a week that goes for less than what I paid. Last weeks the Francis issues were up for auction and given how scarce they are in high grade I'm surprised a few went as cheap as they did. Anyway, here is a link to this week's Santa/Frosty issues if you want to taje a look. These are very tough to find in high grade.

 

You can view  my entire consignment in auction #122250 at the following link: http://comics.ha.com/c/search.zx?saleNo=122250&collection=51&FC=0&type=friend-consignorpreview-notice

I don’t know your circumstances, but I do hate that you have to sell those and break them up. It must’ve been quite the dedicated labor of love to put together a run like that!  :x

Hey Glen

Nice to see you in this thread again, even if it is to pimp your own auctions.  I wwas gonig to comment  the heritage did a nice job in offering your Xmas books right before the holiday

 

I try to bid on all of your books  that are either missing  or significant upgrades.  Unfortunately I am rarely available to  bid live so i rarely win. I believe I am top bidder on 7 books, mostly upgrades,  as I type this but have tapped out on two of the books that I am still missing.  Adding your former books will certainly raise both the  Grade Point Average (GPA?)  and Price Point Average (PPA?)  of my collection

added the first series and the first 99 sections along with a few internal audits,  raised the PPA to 47.82  with all 1280 books entered   .  Current GPA  is 4.812 

Since I last published my combined missing/upgrade list I have knocked off 5 , but more dramatically I have eliminated 25  of  the upgrade candidates.  I am sure that I actually acquired some of those books,  but most were because I increased their cost basis above the minimum hold value of 38 thus they fell off my active update candidate. 

 

Well soon I will be faced with a dilemma.  Do I keep my want list at a perpetual 6 columns of 58 or let it drop to only 5 columns?  At least with 5 columns I will feel a sense of accomplishment  and  expand some of the remaining columns.  If I keep 6 columns do I increase the grade to 3.5?   do I raise the minimum hold value  and try to upgrade a more expensive book where I already  have 50 into my 2.5 copy?  The current structure filled the empty space in numeric order if the book is either under 3.5  or under the hold value.  This means that all 30 spots are filled with 00's  which I was fortunate to find at all, but will not likely upgrade
