and you paid a lot less than the £150 the seller was originally listing it for!


You're right there!

Started at £150, dropped to £75 then £25. I asked him to confirm it was an original, not a copy, told him it would have to pass the 'sniff' test if I bought it, or it would be going back. Turns out he was a really nice chap, but I still gave it a good checking over. Happy with it, looked, smelled and tasted (only joking) right.

Yesterday, I bought two more Broons books (and hope to buy a few more Oor Wullie books in the not too distant future,)

I also bought Hibernia's Fleetway Files book.

Not bad for £80 inc p&p.

Same seller sold off the '69 and '68 - he'd been after the '67 but looks like he's given up and sold his collection off when he didn't get it.

Yep, happy with £8 each all in thanks. 3 are now doubles so they’ll be back on EBay when I get time

I know it's a bit late, but just got back from my high school reunion as we have all met up for the first time since we left high school back in mumble mumble mumble! The clue I will give as to why we met this year is that we are all the same age as Gnasher!

However, before I left, I had been given a batch of 27 Commandos and a Battle Picture Library and I also bought 35 other picture libraries of which four were Battle Picture Library series 2, two were War Picture Library series 2, a solitary Eagle picture library, 8 Football Picture Story Monthly and the rest were Commandos.

However a special mention has to go out for the Battle and War series 2 as they are in almost mint condition and not the find I normally expect in a charity shop.

A few weeks ago, I had won a small bundle of issues from 1999 of the Dandy, but sadly most of the issues have had pieces taken out of the comics (probably for decoupage. :( )

I have made up for it by buying the entire year (all save for No . 2991) today for £12.32(ex. P+H)

That works out at around 24p an issue.

At Covent Garden antique market I picked up 62 issues of Buddy for £20 and four Thomson story paper free gift booklets from 1937 for £13. Then leapt onto an old Routemaster bus and had a nice trip to Tower Hill.

My win over the weekend has become a better value win, with the additional purchase of the missing issue (No. 2991, which costs £2.99, the average cost of all the 1999 issues actually comes out a little over 12p per issue.

Also bought today, a replacement issue of Buster from 1970 (14/2/1970)

Ching-Ching's Own, nos 53 to 75 from 1889.

Ordered free gift novelette which came with Ching-Ching's own #1, but it appears to have been lost in the post as its been a week now since it was posted.

Free gift space gun and flying saucers from Tiger comic #1, also Tiger's Roar free gift Tiger comic #2, both in their original packets.

What a brilliant find! Very jealous of the gun and saucers as it's one of the only #1 gifts I don't have from that period. well done!
