WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
"Metropolis Collectibles stands out as a comic dealer by their selection and stability. What's more, the people who work there are true lovers of comic book art."
- Sean S., New York The Metropolis Survey
I just got back from Wonder Con. I went to walk the show and do some
buying. While the show was very slow for big-ticket items according to
many dealers I spoke with, I was able to make several major purchases. I
bought a large high grade CGC graded collection filled with many
golden age keys and runs. Many of these books will be listed next month, as
I have not been able to process the books before this update. I also
bought an original owner horror/western/crime collection- once again
these books will be listed next month.
As for the Overstreet Price Guide…hmmm. While I respect Bob
Overstreet tremendously I believe that many prices rose too high. I hope
there are no long-term repercussions and I hope he won't have to bring
prices back down like he did in 1997. Please do not get me wrong I do not
think every increase was a mistake I just think it is better to move up in a
slow and cautious manner rather than make huge incremental increases.
On the upside anybody who has a nice collection just increased his or her
net worth. On the downside anybody starting to put together a new
collection is going to have to pony up a lot of bread.
Regardless, I believe that things will work out in the long run and the market
will find it's proper price level as it usually does. I would like to
know what many of you think so please email me and let me know.
