Prog 71
« on: 09 November, 2013, 10:19:27 PM »
I'm flogging a copy of Prog 71 (one of the Burger War ones) that is in quite good nick, but for a newsagent name.

On a non-comicy front there is some stuff you may (may!) be interested in: Rogue Leader for the Wii, a Head Crab plush from Half Life 2, Primevals 1-4, the Complete Dangermouse, Rock Band with guitars and, um, In the Night Garden.

I'm clearing space for Christmas. And my missus is getting rid of a shed-load of perfume samples she bought. Dunno why. They all smell like soap to me.

I'm also flogging a Complete Zenith. But please don't hate me. I want to buy an Xbox One.

Look! Buy! Consume!

Looks like £650 to me and postage of £4.50, nice.

I ain't proud. I'm hoping to get enough for an Xbox One. On balance, that will give me more fun. If these things are going for £500 then I couldn't live with myself having something so valuable and not punting it.

At the end of the day, it's a book that I'd otherwise read once or twice. But I'm actually terrified to open it. It's like buying a new car and having the depreciation hit as soon as you drive out the garage - the idea that taking off the celophane would cost me a few £100s is somthing I can't get my head around.

So, on balance, I'm getting rid. Did I buy it to speculate? No. I feel more like one of those folks on Antiques Roadshow who finds that the old vase they've been sticking flowers into is actually a 15th century relic. My reaction is always the same: flog it before you break it!

... or flog it while it's still a rarity. When the inevitable £30 paperback editions come out, the scarcity component of the value of those books evapourates.
