Yep, and a nice looking copy https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Beano-comic- ... Swf31bUaPp

It's not a bad price to ask in the recent climate. If I was selling it, I'd probably start at a similar level with fingers crossed! If I bought it, I'd be scared to keep it in the house though!

Best copy in extistence I think. Pity it hadn’t got the mask.

I think the starting price is too high.

Hope you don't outbid me at the last second on this one.

I'd say that it is bang on the money. But you are buying them at the retail price not the wholesale price. If I had the money, I would pay that, but as I don't have the money, I am not going to lose sleep over not being able to afford these.
I started to say something sensible but my parents took over my brain!

You'd better make sure your initial bid is big enough then!

I've got them all except the Dandy and Eagle and I'd say they are worth about £450.....less as they're being sold in one lot.

Overpriced when you consider some of the gifts are used or incomplete. Listed individually should see around £400-500. As they are it's not even worth considering an offer.

Yes the collection of gifts is overpriced - £300-400 seems right. Beano No. 1 is cheap - it's Britain's "Action Comics #1" and this is the best copy. It could easily go stratospheric in years to come. Now if only I had £25K...

Interesting thought as I was thinking that there's a good chance of no bids at that level. If it had started at £19,999 I think there would have been quite a bit of interest.
