FULL COLLECTION FOR SALE! Prog 1 onwards!
« on: 30 March, 2021, 03:28:07 PM »
I have 99% decided to part with my 2000ad collection. It's just about complete up to about April 2017. I just don't have the space to keep it anymore. It's pretty much all packed into heavy duty 35L Really Useful Boxes. A good chunk of the first 1000 are bagged iirc. Possibly more.
Progs 1-2028 (none missing) and prog 3 has the free gift, and most of the later progs have their gifts too - I think I'm missing a 30 year old hubba bubba though 😉.
Megs Vol 1, 2, 3, 4, current run up to 383 (none missing)
All the Annuals & yearbooks
Many of the reprint monthlies up to the early 90s
Most Sci-Fi & winter specials etc. inc. '77, '78, '79.
Crisis 1-25, Diceman 1-5
Ideally I'd like it to go to a good home and be kept together. I've looked on ebay and can see the best way to sell would be in chunks, initially I'm reluctant to do that if I can find the right buyer and agree a reasonable price for it... condition is mostly pretty good to very good even many of the early bog paper ones were ok last time I looked - I'd like to think I've looked after them well.
Was hoping for circa £4000-£5000.
It's up in my loft currently and is hernia inducing to move for photos... with lockdown lifting I wondered whether now might be a good time to try selling it as a whole, buyer to collect (you'll need a van).
I'm in Cambridge fwiw. Happy to listen to sense and/or other offers if I'm out to lunch on this. I'd appreciate any thoughts whatsoever actually.

Okay, I've done a bit more looking about and going by individual sales on ebay and then reducing by 30% looks like £3000 would be a more reasonable price as a job lot.
I'm probably going to divide the lot now anyway if no one's interested at that price though. I'll add sales details to this topic, hopefully sometime tomorrow, if not before!

Suspect anyone willing to pay big money on a complete set has already collected a good chunk - or it'll go to a shop/dealer that can will it in chunks anyway, but happy to link this on twitter if you like, Kev.

Thanks PJ. I'm taking pics and stuff right now, I'm gonna split it up I think... just been looking at the earlier progs actually, some of them aren't in the most amazing condition to be fair. Still probably worth a look for someone though.
When I update, I'd be really grateful if you tweeted - it would be much appreciated ;-).
Cheers.

I have now decided to split up my 2000ad collection.

It's just about complete up to about April 2017. I just don't have the space to keep it anymore. It's all packed into heavy duty 35L Really Useful Boxes as shown.

General note on condition:
Some issues are bagged, a handful are boarded too. Some are in fair condition, most are very much readable, some of the earliest ones are perhaps a little tired, but as far as I recall none are truly terrible, there are newsagent marks, cut-out coupons, there might be a bit of water damage, mildew or mould on some of them too… but I think I’ve allowed for that in my prices.

There are a few pics of the collection and the early issues in my flickr stream for anyone who is interested.
Price for everything is £2900 just in case anyone actually was interested in the bulk. Otherwise, I’m willing to split it up as follows.
PROGS:
1 - £90 ono - missing spinner (mould spots)
2 - £75 ono -no biotronic stickers (mould spots)
3 - £90 ono - with red alert wallet (damage to prog - loose/removed pages & mould spots)
4 - £25 ono
5 - £15 ono
6-9 - £10 each ono
10 - £15 ono
11-20 £50 for bundle
21-30 £45 for bundle
31-40 £45 for bundle
41-50 £45 for bundle
51-60 £40 for bundle
61-70 £40 for bundle
71-80 £100 for bundle (includes the “banned” issues)
81-90 £40 for bundle
91-100 £45 for bundle
101-200 £100 for bundle
201-300 £125 for bundle (some key issues in there!)
301-400 £100 for bundle
401-500 £100 for bundle
501-600 £65 for bundle
601-700 £65 for bundle
701-800 £50 for bundle
801-900 £50 for bundle
901-1000 £50 for bundle
1001-1100 £50 for bundle
1101-1200 £50 for bundle
1201-1300 £65 for bundle (includes 1208)
1301-1400 £50 for bundle
1401-1500 £50 for bundle
1501-1600 £50 for bundle
1601-1700 £50 for bundle
1701-1800 £50 for bundle
1801-1900 £50 for bundle
1901-2000 £50 for bundle
2001-2028 £14 for bundle
(year end specials are included within the runs)

MEGS
Vol 1. 1-20 £30 for bundle
Vol 2. 1-83 £100 for bundle ono
Vol 3. 1-79 £100 for bundle ono
Vol 4. 1-18 £36 for bundle
201-250 £100
251-300 £100
301-350 £100
351-383 £66

ANNUALS, BEST OFs & SPECIALS
2000ad annuals £50
Judge Dredd Annuals £40
2000ad Yearbooks £25
Judge Dredd Yearbooks £25
Sci-Fi & Winter Specials £50
Best Of 2000ad monthly £25
Complete Judge Dredd £10
Other Best ofs & specials £20

I'm located in Cambridge city, buyers will need to collect as I am without access to transport most of the time, cash (or paypal will be required as f&f) on pick-up please.

Please DM me with offers or requests. If you require individual issues, sorry, but tough, these bundles are priced extremely reasonably IMO and I’m looking to shift everything as quick as I can! I might consider the odd nicely worded offer, but I will ignore pi$$-takers.
FWIW I’m willing to send Progs 1-10 within the UK via special delivery at your cost (+fees and probably a +15% hassle insurance charge unless you’re happy to trust me as f&f). I might be prepared to send the bundles of 10 too, and I’m happy to photograph and double check issues. Beware, though, if on receipt you quibble about the quality of what is essentially a comic printed on bog paper, that’s on you, sorry - early 2000ad is shite quality, we all know it… if you want top quality guaranteed, you know where to find that.
The bigger bundles will need collection, I won’t even entertain the possibility of Hermes on this - sorry.
I’ve sold stuff on ebay and on various groups and before the ‘C’ word, I was a five star seller: https://www.ebay.co.uk/fdbk/feedback_profile/legospod
Hopefully anyone who’s dealt with me can vouch for my character.
I’m not looking to rip anyone off, it’s gutting to be selling my collection and the realisation that it’s monetary worth is way, way below what it should be, so go gently please.

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.

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.

Vol 3. 1-10, 11-20, 21-30, 31-40, 41-50, 51-60, 61-70 & 71-79 £14 each bundle (or £10 each if picked up)
Vol 4. 1-18 £26 for bundle (or £20 if picked up)
226-250 £22.50 for bundle (or £15 if picked up)

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. With the exception of a few of the choice or rarer items (that I think I’m happy to store and sell later) I might be open to considering an offer or a deal. If you’re interested in coming and taking some of the last bulk away, I might even be open to a cheeky offer, remember, that’s a cheeky offer - not an unreasonable one!

RECENT (RE)DISCOVERIES:
Judge Dredd Mega Special ‘88 neatly signed by Brian Bolland on Dredd’s shoulder pad - £40 ono

“40 Years Creep” Subscriber T-shirt, worn a handful of times. size XL - I think the print is beginning to fade, but there’s still quite a bit of wear left in it - £7?

Thrill-Power Overload (40th anniversary update, hardback) - one dink to back cover and stupid bookshop pricing on inside flyleaf/endpaper - £30

PROGS:
501-550, 551-600 £22.50 for each run (or £17.50 each if picked up)
601-650, 651-700, 701-750, 751-800 £20 for each run (or £15 each if picked up)

I have a big bundle of non-consecutive duplicates of varying quality from approx 233 to around 1226 (some are mint & unread, some earlier ones are frankly unsaleable, but perhaps still readable) - I’m happy to dig through and include a couple for free if you’re buying something else!
Cheers,
