Just ran into this auction. Is this a reputable operation? Are they a regular comic auction house? They have a higher BP than HA! I was thinking on bidding on something but I have never heard of them before.

FACT if I stop posting, trillions and trillions of transistors would be out of work.
I watched some of the auctions. Lots of healthy bidding. There were a number of graded golden-age Planet Comics that went for respectable sums. My favorite was a Planet #2 in CGC 5.0 which went for I think $950.
There was also a big stack of comics with condition problems that went for around $1,800. It included several Timelys such as Blonde Phantom #20 and an early Captain America, as well as dozens of comics that could not be seen in the photos, so who knows what else was in there. It's always tempting to go after such lots just on the off-chance that there might be a hidden treasure like an early Action or something.
There was lots of silver age and the prices were pretty variable.

Morphy is top notch. I've known Dan Morphy for quite a while and he's got one the best run operations in the business. Having said that, he's new to comics and they are not his niche but his recent coupling with Sparkle City should close the gap for him.
