No need to ask if this is a steal.... THIS IS A STEAL!
 
Ever see all the threads on here of people asking if what they got was a steal??

well this isnt one of those threads, THIS IS A STEAL.

so i go to one of my comic shops yesterday and im browsing the back issues.

im in a long cabinet looking under "c" for some old silver age captain america comics.

i go threw them and at the very back mixed in between captain america issues i think 170-190 i find not 1 not 2 not 3 but FOUR of these bagged and boarded mint condition never even opened.

oh and the best part is they were marked for.......... get ready..... .25 each.

yes you read that right a freaking quarter each!!! dont ask me how.

so i grabbed all 4 with the quickness and went to the register thinking they must have known these were marked wrong and the guy says man we had those sitting in there for years we marked them down like 2 years ago finally someone is buying these.

im thinking they got lost between the captain america comics and no one ever knew they were there.

i was just astonished on the inside.

needless to say i came home for a total of $1.08 including tax with 4 of these bagged and boarded litterally 9.8 condition!


one of the most underrated modern books right now in my opinion.

Nice score, I can imagine what was going through your head when you went to the register. Either the guy had no clue or possibly he would say oops that is a mistake they are actually not for sale.

I have been looking for one of those the past month and just can't pull the trigger on eBay or amazon. If you plan to sell one let me know :D

Might have to check out captain America at my lcs

I was happy finding 4 infinity gauntlet #1 in good shape in the .25 bin! no where near your steal

Maybe this should be the steal of the day thread. Today I was searching through boxes of comics at a shop I never visited before and I found walking dead run 55-70 in the $1 bin. I will definitely return to the store when I have more time to search.

Also I ordered 2 infinity gauntlets from an online comic shop and when they arrived today I found one of them has a signature in gold pen under the title. I can't make it out so I will try and post a picture this weekend, maybe you guys could help. The other issue is in better shape but still excited to get a sig for 2.50.

Edit... Figured it out, George perez

Yeah, I've found Capes in .25 boxes. Most people don't know how important it is in regards to Walking Dead. Nice score!
