Topic: Misprints
Some people may collect certain misprints but the market is pretty damn small. AS for how they affect the grade, that will depend on the defect and how common that defect was. If it is found to affect the entire run than it may have little to no effect. If it is a o0ne or two off it could make the book little more than a valueless oddity.

I never quit collecting so nothing got me started again. I did slow down collecting between 1988 and 1992 but I never stopped.

As for the pace around here. It was completely the doing of the folks who run the site. Even before the crash there was little attention and care paid to not only the forum, but the site. Then the crash pretty much polished off what was left. You simply cannot have a forum down for MONTHS with no indication of when it will come back. Forums are also dying out to some extent as people seem to much prefer other social media for communication.

Honestly I don't think it will be worth much. I got #2 & #3 both cgc 9.8 a few years ago and only paid $10 and $8.65 each on EBay from auctions that had a starting bid of $1. Looking at mycomicshop.com issues are going for $1.70 to $2.60 in very fine for first prints. Second and later printings are higher in same grade but not much more.
If I was selling that second copy at 9.8 I'd start the auction at $25, with a "buy now" of $50 and see what happens.

Try using a "advanced search" on eBay. Select "completed" auctions. See if any sold and what prices they sold for.
I tried but didn't have any come up in search, and it doesn't come up in a regular search, but I didn't try hard.
Love the Ross cover for the second print, pretty awesome.

Haha, that almost sounds like me. Even though at the time I had no business buying anything above cover price I was convinced I wanted to share an interest with my son down the road. When he was born my wife and I were going through what I like to call the "dog food days". I made next to nothing at that time but we're a lot better off now.

Well, I'll tell my story in case anybody decides to check out the thread. It sure would be nice to have an active board along the lines of the old CBR boards, but it's a different world over there now (I was banned because I didn't fall in line with their pc agenda, and they
don't like opposing viewpoints), and the other forums I've found are pretty dead. Anyway, this is actually my third venture into comics.
The first comic I got was either Avengers 130 or ASM 139, I'm not sure which. I just remember that I was hooked pretty quick after that, and would buy Marvel comics whenever we made a trip to the drugstore or grocery store. I used to sit a the magazine rack reading comics while Mom shopped for groceries, and back then, nobody cared. I remember reading Hulk 180 in the grocery store,
and I also remember the day I bought Giant Size X-Men 1, all because I saw it had Wolverine in it. When I got a little older, I began to focus on Amazing Spider-Man & Avengers only. A friend and I set the goal to get both series 100-up, in Mint condition (there was no NM back then), and I got a lot of them. But I started having other interests and eventually quit buying the new issues, and after
working the entire summer of my 15th birthday, I was able to get my first car, and fixing it up was my main priority then. I sold what was left of my collection after I burned off my first set of tires and had no way to replace them. Then, in my senior year of high school, I was at a friend's and noticed a stack of X-Men. This was in 1984, and he had issues going back to the 120's, and he let me take them home and read them. That reignited my passion, and I started collecting again. No real goals this time, but I was able to acquire some really nice books, and even got a summer job at a comic shop. Once again, I sold my collection (except for my cream of the crop books) so I would have some money in the bank at Auburn. The first weekend after I moved there, I got a DUI.
Since I wasn't working and could barely survive on my meager finances, I had to sell the remaining comics to pay for fines, lawyer fees, etc. That was in 1986. I didn't buy another comic until 2010. I assume it's because I watched all the superhero movies, and they always brought back memories, but it just took that long for me to finally get the itch. I wasn't even sure I would still enjoy reading comics anymore, but I ordered some back issues and also bought a few new ones from the lcs in town, and I had a good time. Slowly, I began ordering back issues and eventually became a Weds regular at my lcs. After awhile it became an obsession. I easily completed my childhood goals (not in Mint condition though) and actually went much further. I've completed or very nearly
completed a large chunk of the Marvel titles since 1962, and even have a ton of DC. I'm in a position where I only have utitilies, insurance, and living expenses every month, and the rest I can spend how I want, which has been comics for the last 7 years. The only thing about buying at that rate is that I fell behind reading a long time ago, and that's become a source of stress for me. When I'm able to overcome the mental block I've created, I'll have a lot to choose from. Until then, I'll just keep adding.


Great story. And yes, what KDS said, we're still here. This place isn't quite what it used to be but maybe we can bring it back.

Sorry in advance if I am in the wrong place. Can anyone tell me a ballpark price that a copy of Justice #5 second print CGC 9.8 would be worth? Thanks

I thought that was cool too. I really enjoyed the movie, well written, and the sound on it was killer on my sound system.

I won't say too much a out the film other than that I enjoyed it.

I love it when I see comics appearing in a film and there is an uber cool moment when the main character (played by Ben Afflek), goes into this trailer where he keeps money, some original art (Money, Pollock)...... he slides open a draw and there sits high grade copies of Action Comics #1 and All American Comics #16, as well as some baseball cards that I am sure are mega rare.
