Well, I gotta say, thank you Rich. I wasn't going to read this event until Trade. So after I saw this article, I went looking for Newsstand Copies of Batman & Batgirl (couldn't find any of the others). Found a bunch in BAM, where they ship a week or two after the direct market. Spent $33 bucks getting all the copies they had of both (leaving some Batman behind because I wanted to sell them as a set and they had more Batman than Batgirl on the shelf, still do as of yesterday). Anywho, I've so far made $78.66 off of 4 different auctions. That's $46 bucks. Take away the $9.00 for fees and damn, Made $37 in profit...and still have a copy of each left (that I'm saving for later as I start the makings of a multi-issue future auction).
NOT BAD for two books. I'm sure I would have cleaned up really nice if I had found more than just the two books. Minimum effort on my part as well, I ship from home.
Thanks for a little extra cash making opportunity, Rich. Here's is how they did, as you can see, it fluctuated:
The news stand Catwoman #13s were selling for $25 each.
Couldn't find any store in Jacksonville that had the newsstand copies of Catwoman. I don't know any store in Jax that has Catwoman other than direct market retailers, and they were all sold out of the direct market versions. Ah well, I'm happy with my small investment and my modest return
