#5642228 - 04/30/1211:23 PMThe Walking Dead #1, and How I got my copy for $300...
I was posting here when you were in diapers.
So-- long story short, I was visiting some friends this past weekend, and one of the girls' fiances strikes up a conversation on new movies, which then quickly turned into a conversation on popular TV/Pop Culture.
I mentioned that I'm a big Homeland fan, but that I loved what was happening on AMC with The Walking Dead.
He then said, oh, you like The Walking Dead, huh? And I said, yeah, it was actually a comic before the show. And he said, "Oh yeah, I know."
The guy then left and returned with this in his hand:
He told me he bought about 15 copies of No.1 when they came out from his local shop and online on a hunch, and he now sells raw copies when he needs extra cash. He also showed me a ton of other No. 1's he has that haven't neccesarily panned out well. It's his means of gambling (shrug). He has about eight or nine left, all in pristine condition like the one i have. I will #OccupyCGC if it doesn't come back a 9.8.
The best part! He sells me the comic for $300 bucks. I owe him some more beers (a lot!), but just wanted to share my fun story that's gotten me into TWD #1 club!
I feel like whether it's a garage sale find, or discovery in your grandma's closet, everyone's got one of those "GTFO" stories. That's mine!
And just to update you before you ask: -I didn't want to buy the rest after he'd already done the awesome deed -And I definitely spoke to him about CGC grading and how it could increase his take.
Loc: The placement is PERFECT!
I don't pick fights. I simply toss what I call cuddly, little fun bombs. Often these are mistaken for digs or digs in disguise. Despite not attaching an rsvp nor sase, they always seem to elicit a response nevertheless. I am told this is because I have a pugnacious, jackassery style of posting which requires me to be regularly reminded of how unpleasant I can be. - hockey&comicsguy
