TALES OF SUSPENSE #98 VG+ MARVEL COMICS SILVER AGE (CAPTAIN AMERICA, IRON MAN)
MARVEL COMICS' TALES OF SUSPENSE #98 VG+
PLEASE READ THIS!
All of my Silver & Bronze Age books were graded by Overstreet standards BY AN OVERSTREET ADVISOR. Being graded by an Overstreet advisor, and this particular advisor, these books are STRICTLY GRADED, and there should be no argument to the grading you receive with your book(s) because you're in for a real surprise when you get them. You can even tell by some of the pictures that the grade may not be as high as the book actually is, and this is how selling raw, vintage books on eBay should be sold. There is nothing worse when buying vintage books than thinking you're buying a VF and getting a VG/FN, or whatever. Better to set the expectation lower so the book is a better purchase for you.
Let me explain the reasons behind me not actually grading the books myself:
(1) Time – I’m a very busy person and I literally do not have the time to spend hours grading comics,
(2) Honesty – since these books were part of my collection and I have to admit to some emotional feelings towards many of the books being sold and as such, it was possible that my grading would ‘suffer’ under these conditions – thus I hired an expert to grade the books, someone who had no emotional ties to the books being sold.
I purchased many comics via eBay over the years and have suffered at the hands of supposed ‘professional’ graders, or rank amateurs having to send many comics back – with my auctions I am determined that will NOT happen. All books are graded and guaranteed their grade within one tier, and there's a VERY GOOD chance you'll be pleasantly surprised by the condition of the books you receive. Again, he's a grading animal and very conservative and strict in his grading! Believe me, I'd love to list these higher than what's stated but I'm biting my tongue here and once you receive these books, you'll be watching future auctions. There's a lot of garbage grading on eBay with dealers/sellers over-grading the Hell out of their books to make extra money but you will NOT find that here.
2. MY BOOKS:
These books are all from my personal collection, and all of my books are DIRECT EDITIONS. You won't find any garbage newsstand editions in my books. If I absolutely had to get a low grade on a book, then it's a low grade with excellent eye appeal at least. All of my Silver & Bronze Age books are triple-boarded with Comic Care boards and placed inside mylar bags with 2 pieces of tape. If you have any questions, please ask!
Single to several books can fit in a Priority Flat Rate Envelope with support on each sides is $6.00 and includes tracking. I've been the victim of MANY post office problems and lack of respect for packages, but you won't be! I can fit about 20-30 books being triple-boarded in a Priority Medium Flat-Rate box. If you buy a short box worth of stuff or if you're buying one or more of my complete runs that I have up on eBay, here's how I ship a short box: First, the comic short box is lined with cardboard on the sides to keep the books from shifting. If the books don't fill a box completely, styrofoam will be placed in the front and/or back of the box to keep them from shifting as well. Next, the lid is placed on the box, and the box is wrapped in plastic shipping wrap. Next the whole wrapped box is placed in another box lined inside with 1" styrofoam (or 2" if the value of the package is high), and finally the entire box is taped and sealed. Check out my feedback as a buyer and a seller and especially on my shipping and have absolutely no fear or worry there and take comfort in the fact that you're buying from a reliable seller.
I will combine shipping for multiple auction wins so please REQUEST A TOTAL or WAIT FOR AN INVOICE.
No international shipping whatsoever, please don't ask. Positive feedback will be left once payment has been completed!
