I had previously owned them( the batman comics), and sold them to Ron M, with full disclosure. i had also prviously disclosed the numbers to the board list before selling off my collection. The 220 has rediculouly sharp edges, as for the rest who knows. I'm sure he ( ewert) only searched out the best....

How about Pedigree charging an illegal paypal surcharge, not only that but at 5.5% instead of the 3.4% it really is.




And you're surprised by that after Mr Schmell trying to 'lose' his Ewert book in a new Blue label, pressing everything that moves, asking for Page Quality to be upgraded without having to have the book regraded and renumbered...oh, and being disbarred as a lawyer for robbing clients?

One of the parties in the chain of custody on these books burned me for $2,400 on a raw book that ended up being restored.
