Re: How important is colour?

Not sure how to answer the question, but I know that I've seen Cary Nord Valiant issues without color and thought they actually looked better. That being said, I'm not ready to give up on colored books.... at least not in an ongoing fashion.

Re: Valiant NY Offices are Permanently Closed

While it has ominous overtones with the demise of Valiant's publishing numbers under Heather Antos, I agree with Ken that there's no way they needed to be at such a ritzy address. After my first tour of the office five or six years ago, I was already wondering if they really needed to be there, when...

Re: WTB DIVINITY #1 LAROSA (1:40) 9.8

Your 9.6 looks great. Hopefully it gets sold. It sure beats the remaining raw copy on E-Bay with a couple of issues that probably drops the grade a little. Honestly, I will never understand what kind of Ouija board, coin flip, or rock-paper-scissors-lizard-spock game CGC uses to divine a 9.6 from a...

Re: WTB DIVINITY #1 LAROSA (1:40) 9.8

If a raw went for $300, I figured I'd list my 9.6 at $295 and see what happens. It can't hurt to test the market, I suppose. If anyone is interested, I'll knock 5% off the price and cover the shipping.

Priority Mail got more expensive

After being raped by Ebay and Paypal, I went to ship the slabs as promised via Priority Mail. Which is now $15.05 each. Yikes. Over $30 to ship just two books. :!:

How are you guys shipping slabs these days?

Re: X-O Slabs heating up

I don't remember how many at this point. There's what you see there and I think 17 that didn't pass the 9.6 pre-screen. They all look pretty perfect to me... I wished I had just screened for 9.8 and then kept resubmitting.

It's just silly.

The proud owner of that stack of X-O #1s that sold on eBay a couple of years ago has to be happy now.

Hat tip to Ken for giving me a heads up on the Cena tweet. Thanks, buddy!
