You could hire a 3D printer and knock out a dozen more.

That was not a price paid, that was a declaration of insanity!
I started to say something sensible but my parents took over my brain!

I'm convinced some people think Phil is the only person selling old comics and related material. :lol: (Good for him though. He's mastered some magic that attracts high bidders on everything so make the most of it, I say.)

It was sold to an Aussie as well so postage wouldn't have been cheap.

Even funnier was this listing that I saw this morning.........I seriously spat out my coffee when I read this: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/391894288334? ... noapp=true

Hmm... There have been numerous frisbees given away with comics over the years. I'm not convinced that's the 2000AD one. Even if it is, who's going to buy a damaged gift?

I sold the full first volume of eagle this year for less than he got for #1. lol.

The one sale he's made this week that beggars belief was the Sparky #1.

That really was terrible condition. Whoever gets that will surely experience huge buyers remorse.

Good luck to Phil though I must say, the only concern is whether the people buying think they're getting value for money? - if the person that bought the Sparky were to try and resell would it even go over £100?

For instance there was a guy selling the first ten Beano summer specials not so long ago asking a very high price (excluding the combined '63), and part of his listing was that he'd bought the '64 from Phil and at what price - like that was going to make his asking price worth it... Weird.

Phil is just selling stuff that other people consign to him after all.

I remember a few months ago someone trying to sell Dandy #2 with its free gift jumping frog for about £25,000. Well he didn't sell it but has relisted it for 99p. Its actually been bid up to over £1,000 at present.

I thought that was a bit cheeky, I sent him a message asking why he had Phil-comics in his title - 'Is it the name of one of the comic characters in the Dandy?' I asked, got no reply !!
