Bragging rights - your best deal of late?

Post by x-omatic »

We had this topic before. It's a good way to remember that there are still deals to be found.

Here is what I picked up yesterday. Although it is not Valiant it is connected.
I got all of the following books in fn or better condition for less than 300.

Dell Turok 13,15

Gold Key Giant Turok 1

Gold Key Turok 37 ,39, 50, 56, 57, 60, 62, 64, 65, 68, 69, 73, 74, 76, 77, 80, 84, 85, 90, 94, 99, 108, 110, 114, 116

Gold Key Magnus 1, 3, 6(2), 7, 8, 9, 10(2), 11, 12, 13, 15, 17, 19, 20(2), 21, 23, 24(2), 25, 28, 29, 30, 32, 33, 35, 37(2), 38, 40, 43, 44

Solar #10 (1st)
X-O Manowar #1

$4.00 each!

So far, I've got three issues of Valiant (the above and A&A #0 Gold).

I've got four trades, Solar #0, X-O, Rai (haven't gotten to it, yet), Magnus: SN (haven't gotten to it, yet).

Yeah, its sad, but hey, I've only been collecting since mid last year!

:D

Dr Solar 8, 10(2), 15, 25, 26
Quite a haul, x. The trick though is to get Gold Keys in VF or higher.
Are any of your Magnus 10,15,24,25,28 in that grade? If so, are you selling? They are all I need for the set!

Every time I find a lot of Gold Keys for sale, most have the original owners intials at the top of the comic. Ive found that was an extremely common practice in those years, when comics were loaned to your friends.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... %3AIT&rd=1

290 valiant books $46.00 shipped.
Got all the books today an all are NM. Some good finds like last few issues of Solar,Magnus, X-O, Bloodshot last stand, Harbinger 7, Some unity books.
But at only 16 cents each I don't think I could go wrong.

Unity 0 Red NM--$4.50
Nearly every post-Unity Valiant/Acclaim book(including variants)--$.25 each(most of the last issues 5-6 deep)
All-Star Western #11(2nd app. Jonah Hex)VF--$10
GI joe #127-155 NM--cover price($1.25-1.75)
Akira #38(LAST ISSUE NM--cover price($6.95)
Lone Wolf and Cub #45(LAST ISSUE) NM--cover price($3.25)

The best part about these is that aside from the A-SW#11, more of all of these are still available to me at the same prices.

...but that doesn't even come close to what I stumbled upon the other day!!!
More to come....
