This is why collecting is hard.

(This is paraphrased, but you get the idea.)

Me: “Hello again. I have purchased from you before,and hopefully you will also consider this offer.  We think that this could possibly grade at a VG, so I hope you will consider offer this from us. Thanks.”

Dealer reply: “I consider such an attempt to influence my consideration of your offer to be not only ridiculous [as stated above YOU have NOT inspected the book], but a calculated and arrogant assertion that is completely without merit.”

IF YOU ARE POSTING ‘BUY IT NOW OR BEST OFFER’ THEN DO NOT BLOW UP. WE ARE NOT FINDING A CURE FOR CANCER. THIS IS THE COMIC BOOK BUSINESS. GET. OVER. IT.

Many of my friends ask me if it’s worth getting into collecting older comics. I always say no. The above is the reason why.
