Off Topic / Re: Jokes you've made up...
« on: 14 May, 2021, 06:21:30 AM »
I fell down a hill the other day, that's just the way I roll.

I've been investing in grains recently. A friend asked how on earth I make money at it, I said "I just see what crop's up."

My little girl said to me, "When I grow up I want to be a Dentist."
I said, "what have you got against dents?"

I just recycled it last week, it was so heavily read it was falling apart!

You....   what?
Yep. RESYK job. Kindest thing for it. It's being broken down into its constituent parts as I type this I suspect!

Although I have plenty left in my classifieds thread that you are welcome to try to save from a similar fate... that needs an update fwiw - I have sold a few runs since I posted last.

If I'm not mistaken, I think the prog that Barrington Boots started this thread with is one from a little bundle I just sold him!

You know, even though 424 was the first one I read, actually, I always consider my first to be the glorious wraparound on 425. I just recycled it last week, it was so heavily read it was falling apart!

I read prog 424 on the school bus, a friend showed me it, I went home, asked my mum to swap my regular Beano for 2000ad at the newsagent, the following Wednesday, Prog 425 came in! Slavers of Drule. Part 2 of Midnight Surfer, Rogue Trooper with some incredible Jose Ortiz art, Anderson and Slaine too. I was seriously hooked.

This is great PJ. Just the sort of thing I loved about 2000ad as a kid.

Whether you were a weirdo with a head for a knee, a geezer with freaky glowing eyes, a time displaced Viking, a vampire, a knobble headed drunk, a mutant freak with a fist like growth on your head or an over-sensitive alien with weak hearts, or even if you just felt like one, Dave would welcome you as a friend... and probably try to convince you to do something for Futurequake with his winning smile and infectious enthusiasm.

That's the worst news.

Spent a few cons happily chatting to Dave and Richmond when I was doing the circuit trying to get work...

My thoughts are with those that loved him most (and that includes you too Rich).

Sh*t, don't know how to process this.

I’m back with another update! I thought my prices were pretty good anyway, but I do want to shift the remainder asap and so I have made a few more reductions.

Well, we’re doing quite well, I’ve sold a good chunk of the Progs now, just a few more and I might even be forced to use the word “Ghafflebette!”. I still have the majority of the Megazines though. I’ve also added more specials and some variants.

As before, prices don’t include postage or fees. I will post at cost.

I may consider splitting bundles in half within reason but I’m still trying to shift the whole collection so I’m unlikely to just sell single issues. I’m still happy to take photos though.

PROGS:
1 - reduced! £75 - missing spinner (mould spots) tear in front consistent with most issues. Part of Mach 1 first page missing (still readable - as shown). Open to very near offers if you think my price is slightly out.
501-550 £30 for bundle (1st Durham Red 505)
551-600 £27.50 for bundle
601-650, 651-700 £25 for each bundle

Borag Thungg, Squaxx dek Thargo!
Some of the collection has now begun to leave my house and find homes with some of you. Thanks to all of you who’ve bought from me!

Sorry for bombarding you all with another post but I still have most of the Progs and all the Megs left, so please consider if you can help me out by giving some of these progs a better future than the local recycling centre, and also stop me posting updates to this every couple of days ;-).

I’m happy to send within the UK, most likely via Hermes. Up to 5Kg is around £7, 10Kg is approx £9, up to 15Kg is approx £12 - progs are surprisingly heavy - of course, they're full of thrill-power! I’m happy to look into Royal Mail prices too for smaller lots or for rarer issues.

I’ve changed the approach a little here and there and altered some of my prices too. Some things I’m happy to hear offers on, but mostly I think I’ve got these very reasonably priced. If I am out by a large degree, please do let me know. Prices don’t include postage or Paypal fees, I am happy to quote all that though. If you’re willing to pick up large bundles from me in Cambridge, I’m liable to throw things in!

Happy to provide photos too if an issue/condition is important.

My problem is I have every prog since 1990 in my attic and want to shift them all. Any ideas? I don’t think eBay is a goer as there are around 1500 progs, so they’d need to go in large, extremely heavy bundles. I haven’t checked but I guess 1208 is in there.

Kev Levell of these pastures has a thread detailing his selling of his collection and you might get some ideas there

https://forums.2000ad.com/index.php?topic=47466.0

I couldn't get any interest in the whole collection at an acceptable figure.
I was a bit cranky about it though, so may have put the odd person off, irrespective of that, I honestly don't think I would have got anywhere close to what I think it was worth... and don't anticipate that even selling as chunks/bundles.
Unfortunately it really has to be chunks/bundles too. I'm realising they need to be buyer friendly as well. I think the places to sell are facebook tat, facebook 77 and here.
The progs aren't going to appeal to dealers, the offers I had were pretty much for the first hundred only. One dealer actually laughed and then said "no, I really don't want them".
I think you might have a wider audience with ebay, but the risk is higher IMO.
I've met a couple of really nice real fans and dealt with a few too... it's not all plain sailing though and it's a lot of work getting the postage costs right, weight and volume are tricksy and at the prices I'm selling at there's not much meat on the bone to absorb any discrepancy.
