Thanks for the NEAR PERFECT 5-STAR (5.0/4.9) ACROSS the BOARD DSR RATING!…Thanks to you I am now a TR-SELLER!…and for the rest of the year I’ll be auctioning off a super-selection of HIGH GRADE Silver/Bronze/Modern Age Comics, Autographed Comics w/COA’s, CGC Graded Comics and Baseball Cards, Sport Cards/Sets and Autographed Memorabilia, Non-Sport Cards/Sets, and loads of other great stuff. Lots of items will include FREE SHIPPING! Always willing to make a fair deal so…feel free to drop me an e-mail if you have something in mind.

The 1961 premere of this self-proclaimed : World’s Greatest Comic Magazine” ushered in the Marvel Age of Comics. It all starts when Reed Richards, Susan Storm, Johnny Storm, and Ben Grimm take part in a space launch. Everything goes perfectly until they are bombarded with cosmic rays. Their inadequately shielded spaceship does not protect them, and suddenly the four find themselves altered by the radiation. Reed’s body becomes elastic ; Susan finds herself able to turn invisible at will ; Ben becomes mutated into a the scaled-rock skined Thing ; and Johnny becomes a Human Torch. Together, they become The Fantastic Four.

9.0 VERY FINE/NEAR MINT (VF/NM): Nearly perfect with outstanding eye appeal. A limited number of bindery/printing defects are allowed. Almost flat cover with almost imperceptible wear. Inks are bright with slightly diminished reflectivity. An 1/8″ bend is allowed if color is not broken. Corners are cut square and sharp with ever-so-slight blunting permitted but no creases. Several lightly penciled, stamped or inked arrival dates are acceptable. No obvious soiling, staining or other discoloration except for very minor foxing. Spine is tight and flat. No spine roll or split allowed. Staples may show some discoloration. Only the slightest staple tears are allowed. A very minor accumulation of stress lines may be present if they are nearly imperceptible. No rust migration. In rare cases, a comic was not stapled at the bindery and therefore has a missing staple; this is not considered a defect. Any staple can be replaced on books up to Fine, but only vintage staples can be used on books from Very Fine to Near Mint. Mint books must have original staples. Paper is (no worse than) cream to off-white and supple. No hint of acidity in the odor of the newsprint. Centerfold is firmly secure. Very minor interior tears may be present.

        I’ve Guaranteed Satisfaction on all my items sold on eBay for the last 19-years (since my 1st sale…way back in 1998) and my single goal is to make you happy! Just like the asterisk in my eBay I.D. (smittys*stuff), from now on you’ll always see them in my item titles…you can rest assure that there’s “never a risk when you see the asterisk!” As with all my shipping fees INSURANCE IS INCLUDED. I now offer a 30-day return for full refund/exchange/credit/trade whatever makes you happy, but on winning-bid amount only!…all postage – non-refundable. Items must be returned in the same condition that I sent ’em. I accept CREDIT CARDS through PAYPAL (items will be shipped when payment is received), items ship in 24 hrs…happy? I will be glad to combine multiple items brought or won to save you $$$ on shipping fees! Buyer pays for shipping and a small nominal fee for handling/packaging, it take’s time/effort to make sure your item gets to you in a safe/secure manner as my shipping & handling charges for items sold on my auctions ensure the lowest possible fee to the buyer. Most of the cost for handling fees actually comes from the expense of high quality packing, insurance/tracking, advanced product evaluation, product protection and rigorous quality control (I do check every page, cover to cover)…does that make you happy? FREE SHIPPING with BIN price only! I can ship your item Media Rate/1st Class/Priority/Special Standard/Next-Day/Pony Express/Carrier Pigeon, whatever I can do to make you happy, besides…shipping costs really add up, that’s why I give you the option. One more thing…insurance is included in the shipping fee (international shipments MUST be insured). Seller (that being me!) is not liable/responsable for uninsured items that are lost, stolen or damaged in the mail. Thanks for lookin’ at my stuff!…Happy Hunting and Good Luck!
