Yee-Haw! That's the best find I've heard of in a long while. Way to go, Dad!

Went to about five garage sales saturday and only one had comics, he had them marked $1/book. He had about 150 comics...I looked through them all and found only junk, but if junk is cheap I'll buy it. I ask him how much he'd take for all of them and he threw out $120 and since I was thinking more along the line of $20 I didn't even bother to haggle. I just said "Alright, have a good day" and got in the minivan and left.

Funny how some people would rather hold on to junk than to cut their losses. They'll just drag it back into their garage and do it again next year.

Wow, great stuff!

My Dad was my hero and I still keep a picture of him in my wallet. We went to countless flea markets, garage sales and estate sales to find old comic books and he taught me how to deal. His best and still best negotiating line was "Well, what do you want for them?!"

Out of that, I completed all my Silver Age runs from Marvel and DC and then branched out into Golden Age.

Thank you for letting me reminisce...

I was coming home from a show that I didn't do so good at (selling) and I got a phone call from my Dad. He said he bought some comics for me and laid them in my office at work. He said the cleaning lady at work saw some of my comic related items on my desk and told him that a man in her neighborhood had been giving away TRASH BAGS full of comics to neighborhood kids. So Dad went over there and bought all he had left.

You know how that normally turns out. Nothing.

But I went by work anyway and there was comics laying everywhere. Right at 2000 of them. I looked through a few handfuls but it was mostly Archie type books. So went on home, came in the next day to work and started looking through them in earnest.

Started running into some really good books. Sgt. Fury 13, Spider-man 17, 15, 13. Then on to lower Spidey's. 9, 8, 5. WOW! Dad did really good!!! Then there stuck between a Archie and a Betty and Veronica was THE book; a Spider-man #1!!

Ended up being two long boxes plus of Archies and the rest silver age marvel.

He paid 100.00 for all of it.


Lawdy lawdy, if only that would happen down here

I found this baby at a local flea market in a box full of moderns. I paid $10.00 for a bunch of books which included ASM's #238, 173,212,213,214 and 215. Here is a scan of the 238, Not too shabby.

I went to an auction today and had a really great haul \:\) There were also these comic films on reels. I don't know if anyone collects these? I'll have to check ebay to see how much they go for.

WOW!
Well chosen.

In the midst of all the Baker and Fiction House, maybe no one else will notice the digests. Those look great! I'd like to finish off the Adventure set some day.

Have fun with your goodies!
