Title: the back issue bins vs eBay
Post by: Gay Titan on May 18, 2021, 08:09:50 AM
Now that almost everything is digitized, do you still scour the bins for back issues? who still shops for deals on eBay?

Yeah, same here. Of course I was mostly using Ebay to sell rather than buy in the first. I would put up books that I would read just to recoup some of the funds I using to buy them in the first place.
 ;D

It is a lot easier now having a tablet in my hand and not having that worry about damaging the books I was reading before I had a chance to sell them. Ha, it seemed to never fail that I would end up slightly damaging a low print run #2 issue before I resold.
 :-\

From the "buyer" (collector/investor) side of course I can only assume Ebay is still the place to be to find those needed issues, but I haven't been there in some time now so that is only an assumption.

I don't buy anything -at all- anymore. If it's not on MU or DCI, I just don't even try anymore.

Kids, man. Kids...
