RELUCTANTLY SELLING COLLECTION

Post by big bad bri » 01 Sep 2019, 21:54

i have decided to sell my collection of 1000's uk and us comics and annuals, but am deciding whether to use Phil's comics as i want to pull the plaster of quick as they say or take on the stress of it all myself on ebay.i intend to keep those lovely thick and heavy Marvel omnibus i just recently started collecting and will carry on with those.But i am only in a small flat and have no room and hopefully have the gf move in next year if all goes to plan, i have near full run of buster only missing about 200 issues out of 1902, whizzer and chips missing 32 out of 1087, whoopee full run, cheeky only missing 2 .knockout 70s full run dracula lives full run , misty full run and years worth of beano and dandy etc to name a few. probably not going to split sets as want to sell runs of whoopee, buster etc whole together.
I'll probably regret it like i did years ago selling my american collection full of keys etc for next to nothing but not getting any younger and cant take them with you but want to clear debts and start afresh.

I'll take the full run of MISTY off your hands, Bri. Just name your price, and include the postage and packing costs. You will at least know that they will be with a genuine collector, and therefore appreciated and looked after.

So sorry to hear that you have to sell them Bri, that must be a really tough decision. I’d also be interested in the Misty set as well as possibly the Busters. Drop me a message when you get a chance please with prices as well as where you are as it may be easier for me to pick them up than you to post them. If you’ve got a list of your whole collection, I’d love to see that too please.

I am sorry to hear too, Bri. I know how much important our collections are to us Collectors.

I assume, Bri, that when you wrote Misry, you meant MISTY. Why did you sell your full run of MISTY without giving me a chance to bid? You knew perfectly well that I had stated that I would buy the full run from you, paying your asking price plus your p&p costs. I do expect a reply, Bri, as I am very disappointed.

Hi Brian,
I'd be interested in any summer holiday specials that aren't already sold (depending on the price, of course).
