Hate to dissapoint you but I started my life out north of you ...

As for who will win.  Hmm it would appear than most people did not bid for the 1st ST1.  So it leaves the field completely open. I would really like to say Harami ... However the people with deep pockets tend to be very quiet.

We won't be bidding as we are probably going to sell our collection.

Good luck to those who are bidding.

You're still bidding on other items, Burnie (just noticed on that auction with myself and Mike <improvstone>).
Can't turn down a shot at some of the "old time" stuff?

We don't have any Alarums in our collection. Our bid was very low, just figured if we could pick them up cheap so we could look at the content before reslling.

That is just one of the items you are currently persuing ... hmm ... me thinks your attempts to convince us that you are leaving are in vain :-)

Can't quit collecting cold turkey. Might get the shakes. Besides, we are thinking of doing a little reselling since we know what to look for. :)

Burntcougar?

Great, just great... I think I preferred things when you had to lock up your finances in collection-form, rather than churning and leveraging the market. :roll:

Anyhow; I presumed you already did some reselling, no?
Otherwise would be difficult to explain all those multiple copies... ;)

Looking forward to developments: am sure you'll keep us posted!

We sell doubles that we get in lots. Also if an item that usually sells for $50 is only going for $10, who wouldn't buy it and then resell. Doing this you can get some extra cash to spend on your collection. We are going to be selling real soon(after we inventory everything and come up with a value). Unless someone comes forward with the money we would want for the entire collection it will be sold individually. I will keep everyone posted on our intentions so everyone interested will have a shot.

Tough question to ask when you don't know what's IN the collection.


If you hit a Rowsdower, you get to keep it.

Why in the heck do you want to sell your collection?

I'm seconding stormber's sentiment... why?  You guys have one of the best collections around.  You'll miss it if you let it all go.  Please think about it carefully before selling.  

Has the comic market ever recovered after the crash some 10 years ago?  I never collected comics (I think I have about 5 some place) so I never understood the attraction.  Sell the comics first and see how you feel about it.

I agree with the above sentiments burnie. . . . that's my point about comic collecting.  Why sell?  Someday you're just gonna want to buy it all over again.

Regarding comics. . . Silver Age comics (1960's) sell well, but unless they are high grade CGC, you gotta figure that you are only going to get 50% of guide value (at most).  Still, it's better than the 25% that your local shop owner is likely to offer.

Bronze sells okay (1970's) with the same guidelines.  

With a few exceptions, you are going to have to sell 80's and 90's comics in lots.  I filled massive holes in my collection (when I took about a decade off), by buying huge lots for almost nothing.  i.e. forty Incredible Hulks for $8.50, Thirty Daredevils for $9.99, etc.  (You can usually do this with Bronze Age as well). 8)
