Well, I'll take any feedback that thou wisheth to grant. I figure if I have done something stupid here, eh, it's only X-men trades Cheesy

So..yeah, lets see how much commitment I put towards this. Would like to think I'll keep the wherewithal to continue on past growing pains....

Only thing I can honestly say is I think you may be a tad high on your set of two trades. And by a "tad", I mean extremely high.
 Wink

I mean, In Stock Trades, HERE, has the Miller one for $9.34 and Blood for $7.12 = $16.46.

I guess you may get a guy that cares if it is a first printing, so crossing my fingers there for ya, but you usually have to offer a pretty good deal for trades on EBAY as Amazon or InStock is just gonna be a better deal.

Still waiting for your comics however  Smiley

Ah.....WHOOPS.

Call it sloppy typing; so I'll just do an edit to that...and still hope for someone to just take it anyhoo. Cheesy

Also wasn't going to do any comics (quite yet) until I get the hang of some post office trips and hopefully some feedback. That, and deciding what I can kind of off-load, to get experience, and to not cry about just tossing comics out the window.

Oh no, that's a good strategy. Also builds up your feedback to increase chances of higher bids later down the line. I wasn't rushing ya  Wink

And both positive responses, so that was okay, and my stress is gone.

With that more trades are up!!

Feeling much more confident, more auctions up, and getting ready to start putting up comic lots now. Thinking of a few big splashes at first:

Flash:Rebirth (SO not impressed by this, so what ever I get from this, I'm okay with)
GL: Blackest Night (I got the HC last year for an Xmas gift, so I might as well turn this one out to the world. AT least I have issue 0 for it as well)
Superman: Secret Origin (I kinda wanted the trade of this from the start)
Superman: Birthright (I think I would like to find this in trade still)
Batman Inc & Leviathan (I got the pre New Morrison in trades, but I'm not sure I cared for how it all really finished)
