HI, THIS COLLECTION IS NOW ON SALE UNTIL DECEMBER 12TH AT $6,500 FOR 20 HALF-BOXES (COMIC BOOK BOXES) FILLED VERY TIGHTLY.
FIRST COME FIRST SERVED. MUST GO BEFORE MOVING.
Hello fellow collector,
I have recently spent hours re-organizing my comics in smaller half-box sizes. It looks like there are 27 or so as I am not totally finished. In this picture are only 18 of the 27 boxes as the other ones aren't labelled yet and I need to buy four more of those same boxes.
However, what I have done this time is to film a video of myself showing what is in all the boxes instead of typing everything. You will see that there are no repeats to speak of, all different comics.
For the serious buyers, I will mail the DVD. Please note that I am asking $9,375 for my collection that I have been building for about 40 years. So, I would appreciate no insulting offers from those that offer ridiculous prices for people's collections to then make big profits to sell the items separately. You know who I am talking about, the guys who are supposedly friends with others until their friends go to college and then they convince their friend's parents to sell them their buddy's collections. Of course, these buddies never find out what really happened have never seem to share good relationships with their parents again.
I am selling this to finance my schooling and to raise money to help teach the youth my Sustainability and Humanics Program. If my other sources of funding pay off I won't even sell my collection. I need to keep this collection to read when I am in an old age home because maybe it will help me fight off dementia.
The lowest price I would go for a quick sale of the entire collection is $8,000. If anyone offers between $4,840 and $8,000, any amount from $9,375 offered will find boxes removed from the collection. Please note that I WILL BE THE ONE TO CHOOSE WHAT TO REMOVE as I will then choose my favourites to be re-reading for the future. If this all seems strict to you, you probably have no clue what it takes in time, money, passion, chance and care and concern to create a collection such as this.
It is my hope that this collection will find a good home with a parent that wants to offer their child the gift of reading, wonder and imagination from some of the best super-hero storylines of the last four decades.
I would say it is 70% Marvel, 20% DC and 10% Other Publishing Companies such as Dark Horse. Note that depending on the ages to read this, I would advise you that some have a mature reader rating that should be followed.
PS I will add two boxes of French Comic Books for another $225. These are the same super-hero characters but are translated in French from an old Québec publisher called "Heritage."
