He may very well be, Adam, but not with the username ramintas.
Most of us don't use the same ebay usernames as we do on here, if any of us. I couldn't spell his username from ComicsUK!

I'm sure if you ask nicely, he'll let himself be known to you if it's important that you know.

I think 'fair' and 'poor' mean about the same with many sellers!

I can't find any record of these two being sold before which might explain the amazing prices already bid

I probably have that complete run as well as Whizzer and Chips and TV Comic from 1972. I have a complete set of TV21 second series all in near mint condition. I'd like to sell them but scared they might get lost in post or buyer could deny receiving them.

Steve, make the buyer pay for insurance and then you're both covered. I sold a £1k lot at Christmas and charged £9.50 postage via Royal Mail which covered both of us. There were no problems. I've sold quite a few lots between £200 and £400 over the last year and they've all been OK. I've just checked Royal Mail and you can send a parcel up to 2kg for £12 and it will be covered up to £1000. Next day 1pm delivery as well. If I win them, I'll come and pick them up from you!

Wait until Ebay offer one of their £3 or £1 max fees as that will save you a bomb in fees

I've had people say they haven't received an item and, even though I had proof of posting including door number and postcode, I had to issue a refund. How do we know buyer wasn't lying? Luckily only a few quid but with TV 21 it would be a three figure sum. It would be intolerable to issue, say, a £500 refund and think maybe they have the items as well. I was thinking of selling them through phil-comics but not sure what his cut would be.

Anyway Millwall for the premier league? To be honest I'd prefer not to but the extra millions would help my club.

I've been wondering whether to bring that matter up or not, Steve. The problem is that you might then have been tempted to commiserate with me over Bolton's helter-skelter descent towards the obscurity of the Third Division, or League One as it's currently referred to.
