Buy My Collectibles has acquired over 50,000+ comic books. The books date back to the Golden Age thru to the present. Many hard to find, key issues & runs of titles from Charlton, Classic Illustrated, DC, DELL, Gold Key, Marvel, Independent/Underground publishers, variant/certified signed editions & CGC graded books. All genres, Super Hero, Horror, Western, Romance, War, Disney, Archie, Casper & so much more!
The books range in condition from 0.5 POOR to "HIGH GRADE" NEAR MINT. I have been brought on board to organize this massive collection. I bring with me over 35 years experience of collecting, grading & selling comic books. I grade very conservatively using the 10 Point Grading Scale per The Overstreet Price Guide. Please note that I am not a professional grader and that grading is not a science and can vary from person to person. Because of time constraints and trying to list as many books possible, a majority of the time general letter grades will be given to the book/s that they fall under and or range between. There will also be times when a more specific numerical grade is provided along with corresponding letter/word grades. In The Overstreet price guide section there are 6 grading categories/scales for which they price books GD (2.0), VG (4.0), FN (6.0), VF (8.0), VF/NM (9.0) & NM- (9.2). So for example if a book is listed as or described as VG/FN, in my estimation the book ranges in VG (4.0) condition to FN (6.0) condition. I will try to note anything that does not show in scans/pics. like spine splits, gloss/reflectivity issues, loose pages/covers, large stains/discoloration & paper brittleness. Most books will be starting at ONLY .99 with NO RESERVE so you/the market decides on price of these books. Remember any price guide is just that a GUIDE! So if you feel compelled to debate whether the book grade should have been a 4.0 VERY GOOD instead of 4.5 VERY GOOD+ or 5.0 VERY GOOD/FINE then these auctions may not be for you. Please see scans/pics. and or ask questions to assist in your grading and decision to bid. The scans/pics. are of the actual book/s that will be shipped to you. Please put us in your favorites as hundreds of books will be listed weekly. All books come bagged & boarded.
Offered for your consideration is a "RARE" STRANGE TALES #147! Published by Marvel Comics way back in 1966. Written by Stan Lee & Dennis O'Neil, art by Don Heck & Bill Everett with cover by "industry legend" Jack Kirby! (check out pics./excuse glare) 1st appearance of KALUU! Vintage "KEY" STRANGE TALES issue and a "MUST HAVE" for any Marvel Comics, Bill Everett, NICK FURY and DR. STRANGE completist/collector! In my estimation the book ranges in "NICE" (5.0) VERY GOOD/FINE to (5.5) FINE- condition. Moderate wear to cover, spine, corners & edges. Covers, inside & out have minor age discoloration/staining/soiling. Small scrape on first interior page that does not affect ability to read & enjoy book. There are no other real glaring flaws/defects/imperfections to note or that is not typical to books falling under the grade ranges indicated above. Really a sharp looking copy with NO SPINE SPLITS! Book is very tight/solid/structurally sound with no loose cover/pages. Cover is clean, has super high gloss/reflectivity with bright, vivid colors. Cover inks still have that wet fresh look. Inside paper is yellowed yet supple. Definitely in CGC worthy condition. A highly desirable collectible/investment copy with strong eye appeal. Don't snooze & miss your chance on this "pivotal" STRANGE TALES issue that in (9.2) NEAR MINT- condition would set you back around $100! DON'T WAIT!
