Buying: BUYING COMIC BOOKS / / TOP $ $ $ PAID

Hello I am buying Superhero and Horror related comic books from the 1930's - 1970's. I will also consider key or hot books from later dates.

I have been a dealer / collector for over 30 years. I will be fair, honest and friendly. No BS sales pitch, No lowballing. Call / Text / Email : 347 471 9371

Re: Feedback

I emailed expecting a answer and was ignored after a few emails was exchanged. Poor communication.

Warning to anyone emailing the person: will nitpick to death ; i emailed a picture that which can see all faults clearly but went on there's a tiny spot there, tiny spot here not even worth mentioning those faults would only degrade very little. If commons had those little faults still could get normal price, i did when i was selling commons individually easy including indys, valiant for one example. I would only email the person unless you need money awfully bad.

Ask for a quote, would not give me one. So i emailed with the lowest i would go which was cheap according to guide even cheap enough to get to resell elsewhere and make at least a few hundred (that's at least, it should be more), no answer. If wasn't interested in the comic itself would not have kept emailing me about it. So basically his/her no lowballing is a lie.

Before you respond buyer saying my price was too high just think about this: i've had several that wanted it at 1900.00 and each one said they get it if they had the money. They were comic freaks just like me. My price i gave was less than half that amount. Quite a drop cause i needed the money to pay bills and debt.

When am i ever going to learn everytime i see a ad similiar to this it's always wanted me to give it away / lowball as you say. 900 shipped; offer was cheaper if you used not paypal is way low, you said i'll pay top price. 15 - 20 just on shipping by itself to ship properly with tracking, signature, insurance

Re: Feedback

I have been buying and selling books for over 30 years, and I have bought and sold books from a few dollars to thousands of dollars. I have many customers who were not only satisfied as to how I treated them, but also kept in touch with me through the years and even at times recommended their friends to me.

The person who posted this response was trying to sell a Brave and Bold #34, and sent me 1 photo of the book. They wanted to know what I would pay. I responed that I woud need to know more information, as I was not close to them and could not see the book in person. As anyone knows who has ever bought or sold a book, pictures can be deceiving. I asked them if the book had a spine split, which was hard to tell from the photo. NO answer , said look at the picture. I asked them if the book was restored, NO answer, again said look at the book. Then responed that they were not going to "study" the book to determine condition, and I should be able to tell from the photo all the issues I raised. As to his claim that I lowballed him, this is a total lie, as I never even made him an offer. Anyone who can not take the time to even answer simple condition issues, then on my end I would have no interest in buying their items. That is exactly what happened.

Re: Feedback

1 photo was all i had uploaded, i answered why i did not have the back uploaded. I did offer to upload if you quote a price that i liked. I'm on a slow connection and it's a pain to upload photos, there was no sense in taking the time to upload the other when you would not price me which i asked i don't know how many times. You sent no money amount. Quoting someone is not a confirmation of buying, you may not have liked the back. I said i would if i liked the quote.

If you are afraid photos are fake, you should not be requesting books online and see them in person at all times. I could post a billion photos of every single inch but it's possible all can be fake or even edit them. Anyone can snatch pictures anywhere and edit them easy and there's no way in this situation or asking for comics online you can tell it's 100% real. One can put a note saying date, so it can edited in easy, picture of the actual seller again could be anyone you wouldn't know it. This is pretty stupid though if you use paypal, you can file whether it's like described or not and i would lose; if i don't agree with it paypal will force it. Losing paypal when selling online is very very bad. Option was allowed. Was taking a chance offering it, it's a big mistake using this selling something expensive because of that term.

You asked spine, fox, etc lots lots of issues which can be seen from the photo; the people who would have bought it if they had the money had the same 1 photo. Yes i did say wasn't going to study it, studying it means looking at every inch nitpicking it to death which i don't do, you was asking so many it was crazy. If it was off the spine or pages cut liked you asked that would make it a Reader Copy and i said it wasn't. If it was a reader copy then my quote i gave you would have been bad. I said worst thing you can clearly see was the writting on the front that means it's not possible for the book to be off the spine because that's worse than writting. With the experience you presented you should know off the spine is worse than writting.

You did not have to give a price or say lowball in the email, i received the answer by you not answering back thus rejecting the low amount i gave which is LOW. You kept responding asking several things about it so you was interested the comic but for some stupid reason no quote. Making it lower than the amount that i gave is lowballing.

Not responding emails when someone is expecting you too is not friendly, that leans more toward rude.

This post is still on the 1st page yet you posted a duplicate post. That is Spam.

So we have spam, poor communication, lowballing, nitpicking, telling me i didn't describe it properly but yet you knew and seen all faults except for a slight roll which i told you about this is what is called a liar. 30 years or more and you are guilty in all of the following that's bad. At least it's not the worst i've seen, i've seen people with over 1 billion + feedback all plus and they still don't know how to pack a item properly to ship why just recently i ordered something from a high end company and what'd they do poorly pack it lucky it didn't get damaged.

You can find suckers on craigslist for your low balls. Everyone knows buyers there are the worst low ballers around join the community. You can also meet with them, nitpick the comic to get it for less if you find someone who doesn't know a thing about comics. Reminds of me of what 'pickers' do.

Oh i almost forgot the stupidest thing in your emails. My first email was how much you give and gave a link to a picture. You responded something very similiar like "Got a Picture" which i had to repeat then you finally visited the link. Then you said something like looks like pretty good shape and then you started to nitpick it to death. Saying good shape showed that you can see the picture clearly. I should have not responded back after the 1st reply from you "got a picture" acting like a dummy. Not quoting word for word but it's similiar to what you said.
