Retail value is $ 40
Now, if there is an obvious error like no scan, no price, incomplete information, contradictory description, etc.
Please, I mean... PLEASE... contact me so I can correct the problem prior to bidding as changes cannot be made after a bid is place, and I end up just having to cancel the auction. We reserve the right to cancel the auction or not
sell book after auction ending if there is an error. So please let us know before bids take place so we can fix the auction.
Even though this auction page is lengthy, please read it once through and we will have a much more enjoyable
transaction together. And just think, you only have to read it once. These books came from my personal collection
where we put them in archival mylars and have not seen the light of day in over 20 years! NICE Issue!
Don't let this item get away. We examined the staples and centerfold and whiteness of interior pages and cover.
Bigger than life scan shows any exterior cover defects. Any interior defects affecting grade are noted above.
This book is bagged and boarded. See scan for additional details. We often hear how we have under-graded these books.
Check our feedback. We unconditionally guarantee our comics, see detail below. Scan is high rez and is set at larger than life size so any defects you see are really smaller than actual size.
I don't mean to sound redundant, but If no scan appears with the auction starting or if the scan is of the incorrect issue,
please email us. If the incorrect scan or there is NO SCAN at all in place at auction ending, assume the item is NOT
for sale as we cannot honor auctions without proper scan, so please notify us if there is no scan. 95% of the time if
there is an obvious error, somebody has already bid on the auction. So I send them an email asking why they bid on
this instead of contacting me, and every time they say, "Oh, I didn't read the description, I just bid on it" (duh!)
Don't wait until the last minute to bid!
You know how Ebay gets locked up or your computer can go down!
No Minimum, No Reserve!
Don't wait to bid on this item and since there is no reserve, so somebody is going to take this home! What a deal.
We have a great 'no hassle', 'no questions asked' return policy. However, we do reserve the right
that if Ebay's system fouls up before auction ending to not honor final bids if bidding is not available.
Save $1.00 off ... or Get freebie $10 book...
and/or same day shipping by READING this:
Regarding USA SHIPMENTS: Discount Shipping Costs
We can take Master Card, Visa, Discover and American Express and Papal or you can mail in your payment. Shipping and handling is $5.99 for
first book and then $1.99 for each book afterwards. Called, faxed, emailed Credit cards can be used, but if you do not have a feedback rating over 15,
and not using Paypal, then you must fax us a letter with credit card info, amount and signature authorizing charge. We have a 7 day return policy
(except shipping related charges) on everything we sell, except CGC items. Although we package VERY securely, All auction winning totals over
$200.00 will have a small fee added for insurance as we will not take the risk of mailing damage or claims of loss this is for your protection.
Remember that international shipments can be delayed by customs, so while we don't mind at all if you check on the status of an order, b
ut don't blame us if it takes a long time. All items MUST be paid immediate of auction ending..
1. If you want freebie stuff & 2. You must note this with your paypal payment not by sending me
an email, because the shipping department gives out the free stuff.
NOTE: After 10 days without payment, ebay will send you an alert; your item will be relisted at 14 days & the auction
will be canceled. Ebay only allows us 32 days to file for a credit which means the transaction has to be completed
during that time so we have to allow time to receive payment, mail out item, you receive it and finish the transaction,
so that time allotment is very minimal. Certain Items Require Mandatory Insurance
If you win a single item or a few combined, expensive items and CGC items (over $150 each), we will add insurance
to your shipping costs. This protects both of us.
We are a reasonable EBAY seller. We are easy to deal with. We offer these books at a No Minimum, No Reserve price, starting at 1 cent,
so THIS item WILL SELL to the highest bidder. That being said, and since our shipping & handling costs are what they are, please be aware
that is you win a lot of auctions, your shipping costs may appear high. Otherwise, our shipping costs are NON-NEGOTICIABLE. If you win 40
of our auctions and your S&H is about 50 bucks, so be it. This just means you GOT A REALLY GOOD DEAL on the books you won.
And if You just bought 40 books, likely about 10 to 20 cents on the dollar so what is the big deal for you pay another $1.89 for the shipping?
You already got a KILLER deal.
If I am willing to sell, let's say, a $50.00 book for the highest bid of $9.00 because of no minimum, no reserve, starting at a penny, and you win
a bunch of my auctions, just cough up the shipping & handling costs and remember how you got a great deal. When submitting feedback,
we still expect YOU to give us 5 stars, even on shipping costs, because we are willing to sell this item at a greatly reduced price, and since
we out-source our S&H, we can't afford to lose money there too. If you don't give us 5 stars, we lose our 20% discount on ebay fees and that
will force us to to put a reserve price on our books and that will not be good for either of us. We have had 50,000 ebay auctions.
We are not here to give anyone the shaft, but we expect you to hold up your end on the deal too, by paying for your auctions and not trying
to renegotiate shipping costs. Ebay & paypal fees account for about 13.5% of the sale. We can only sell these books this cheap if you give us 5 stars.
In other words, if you can't give us 5 stars, please look at somebody else's auctions, or return your items for a full refund and we can both walk away.
Please note: If you notice any errors like wrong scans or incorrect issues numbers; please email me so I can fix it prior to any bids.
Scans normally when auction begins if so image is there please conatc me prior to bidding otherwise I'll have to cancel the auction.
You only need to read this once... but it will save both of us
a big headache if you read this now, not after the auction ends.
So What happens if you win one of SAMCO1's auctions?
COMBINED SHIPPING INFORMATION
We will send you an invoice the night the auction ends. Shipping costs may appear high, but please keep in mind
that we often include free silver age marvel titles similar to what you win for FREE if you are a repeat winner or
make a request. The free stuff we send offsets the shipping costs. If you win some of our auctions, you do not have
to wait for an email from us. You can calculate the total and make payment. Please note: On the average, each month,
we receive about 40-60 emails asking us if (1) we will hold their auction items, which is OK but they did not note this
with their Paypal payment. (2) Don't try renegotiate shipping costs because you won a lot of auctions. (3) Please Tell
us there is no scan or there is an obvious error in the listing, because if you have already bid on it anyway,
If you win more that one item use which means we now we can't fix the auction and have to cancel it & start over.
this as a basis for figuring your total for USA (First Class/Priority Mail with delivery confirmation) shipping:
1 comic is $5.99; each additional comic is $1.99 Please Note: We encourage you to pay for your item after the auction
ends even if it is prior to us sending you an invoice but please remember to include sufficient shipping. Canadian shipping is $9.99 for first comic and then $1.99 each after that. INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING:
We ship anywhere in the world. Up to 6 comics can be safely shipped via AIRMAIL POST or Global Priority
(in a Global Priority Envelope) with strong side boards for $14.99 plus $1.99 per comic (up to 6 comics) plus insurance.
If you win more than 6 comics, the shipping costs start over again. If you purchase over 6 comics and wish to have them
insured, we will send them registered mail/insured, which costs about $16.00 for up to six books, insured for $200.00
Additional insurance is not much more on registered mail. We send out books Mondays through Thursday each week. PAYMENTS ...
We think Paypal is great, and if you are using PAYPAL, we just need a Confirmed Shipping Address or you must
email us your name, phone number and address. After you've logged into Paypal, you must type in Paypal's message
box the comic book name and issue number or your item WILL be delayed. and not just the ebay item number
Please send along a copy of the auction ending page or its general information. Now, if you have special shipping
requests, you must include it in the message box of Paypal and do not just send an email telling us some special
request as this will not be cross-referenced. . Mailing Payments (SAVE $2.00-$22.00) on Shipping
If you mail in your payment, postmarked by the same or next business day, you can deduct $2.00
from your total. If your total is over $100.00 you may also deduct an additional $1.00 for each
$100.00 in winnings you have up to $20.00 in savings making a total of $22.00 in savings. It is Great
to mail in your payment, we accept virtually any payment type.
Please Do not mail a payment and then send an email telling us to hold on to the comic until our next
batch of auctions ends, as we will not notice it. You need to include this information on your paypal
payment or include an item list and your name/address if mailing payment. This is the same address if you have a return to make.

See our Feedback and Buy with Confidence!
We want to EARN 5 OUT OF 5 STARS! SAMCO1 works very hard to earn those Stars from you...so if there's ANY reason
you feel we HAVE NOT earned 5 Stars in the DSR Categories of 'Item as Described', 'Communication', 'Shipping Time' and
'S&H Charges', please email us or call me personally at 509-521-2912 & allow us the opportunity to earn those Stars from you.
According to eBay, miscommunication and the lack of good communication are the number one reason Sellers and Buyers
have problems. Let's all make sure that doesn't happen. Thanks.
We're here to make a Customer for life, not for just one sale.
Non U.S. Buyers/International shipping:
SAMCO1 shipping is open Monday through Wednesday and all payment clearing our banks or PayPal will be mailed that day.
But, it may take up to 30 DAYS for your item(s) to arrive to you through your county’s Customs and post systems, however.
Although this rarely happens, we can only start a claim AFTER 30 DAYS and would greatly appreciate your patience for shipping
issues that are beyond our control. Please remember, we ship within 24 hours of your payment clearing on our workdays so that
you normally will get your item within a week to 10 days but it it takes longer and although frustrating for everyone, we can't
be responsible for delays caused by your country's Customs and mailing systems. Please keep this in mind when leaving your
Feedback and DSRs. Thank you for your understanding and your purchase! – SAMCO1
Returns / Exchanges
We offer a 100% satisfaction on all our items. Buyer is responsible for ALL return postage but we will allow you to take a future
auction credit on any shipping money you spent. Refunds (if available and at our discretion) are paid minus S&H charges.
If you have further questions, please email us. If we haven't responded in a timely fashion it is because I am out of the office
at a comic show or buying a collection. If so please call me at 509-521-2912. Please don't be a jerk and leave a neg-feedback
because you sent me 20 emails in a relatively short time & you think I am avoiding you. That is NOT THE CASE.
If you have any concerns, CALL ME. This means you pick up a phone and call my number and talk to me.
Do you have Buyer’s Phobia?
Please do not feel intimidated to talk to me. I am not an ogre and do not carry the plague. I am friendly and easy
to deal with but sometimes I am difficult to reach by email. If you have Anthropophobia (fear of people), it would
compelled to leave negative feedbacks after sending 6 emails in 2 days, please BUY FROM OTHER PEOPLE,
NOT FROM ME. Apparently, the goofballs that have left me negative feedback must have phonophobia (fear of
talking on the phone) as NOT ONE of them has ever called me to discuss a matter, one cornball left me 5 negative
feedbacks because he returned 4 items out of 5, which I had refunded his money immediately and somehow
he didn't realize that he had his money back in his paypal account because he spent it and so without contacting
me, he left me all those wonderful feedbacks (and ebay won’t do anything about it). Every single negative
feedback we received, the buyer regretted doing so but with Ebay’s new policies, you cannot change it unless
it is threatening or ethnic derogatory. So please, if you feel compelled to leave a negative because you have
not truly communicated with me and don’t want me to fix your problem, at least threaten me with my life
so I can get the feedback removed. Thank you.
Read our S A M CO 1's SOAPBOX
& get Free stuff!
Let's talk about our UNBELIEVABLE PERSONAL GUARANTEE.
If you win an auction from SAMCO1 and you later have second thoughts or your item does not meet up to your expectations, what should you do?
1. Can you return an item?
2. When should you file a dispute? 3. How do I get a refund back?
First of all, let me say that I have been on ebay about 16 years, since July, 1998 and we are here for the long haul.
We only seek to have satisfied customers and as you can see from our feedback most people have bought from us
an average of 4-5 times our unique feedback number. The reason why so many people come back and buy from us
again and again is that we always take care of our customers. If you experience a problem, we always make up
for it 110-130%! If we goof something up and you are nice about it and bring it to our attention through a nice email,
we'll not only fix the problem, we may give you free future credit, free valuable silver age marvel comics, etc., etc.
You can't lose. We do not intend on giving anyone the shaft or displeasing anyone with their auction purchase.
We sell many 1000's of silver age marvels on ebay. Now, I guess I should restate what I said earlier about 'you can't
lose'. Actually you can lose. You see let’s say if it were to occur that, on the slim chance that we missed a notable
defect or sent an incorrect item or there is a delay in shipping, please DO NOT send emails that whine and complain,
threaten us, deride or abuse and make sordid demands on us. Please do not go into a plethora of details about what
is wrong with a comic. This is the wrong way to get us to fix a problem. You see, if you win something from us, and
you are nice about it, we will bend over backwards to make you happy and make you a repeat buyer. But if you are
the type that carries a big chip on the shoulder and if we make a small goof, you get bent out of shape and take
personal offense that we were trying to purposely give you the shaft, and you want to threaten us, leave negative
feedback or file a dispute without even communicating with us first, we would prefer that you take your business
elsewhere. It almost seems funny and absurd that, on the rare occurrence, rather than the auction winner to try
to be a nice person and give us an opportunity to fix any sort of problem by either refunding, or giving some
instant or future credit or free silver age marvel comics so that the buyer comes out 'smelling like a rose'
on the transaction, there seems to be a few people out there that must be paranoid delusional because they
simply cannot prevent themselves from 'blowing up' or having a coronary in their emails, being nasty and
threatening, thinking that we purposely sent them an inadequate and defective item, then making demands
on us that we refund the item and refund shipping costs both ways or they'll leave neg feedback. Well, if that
is what you want, we may do that, but you are still the loser because you could have taken advantage of
personal guarantee and got a bunch of free stuff or discounts.
In short, if we goof something up, it is actually to your benefit, because we try so hard to make it right for you
by giving free comics, credit and discounts, or a combination of them, that will more than make up for any
problem. But if you are just naturally a mean and nasty person with a demanding, unreasonable temper,
and you send caustic emails, you'll find that although we will still be accommodating and fix the problem,
you will also find that you'll never bid on our auctions again as we will put you on our no-bidder's list,
because we only want to deal with nice friendly people.
I guarantee to give you a positive auction experience, and the only thing that depends on you is to be a
nice person AND Not be mean, bitter, a jerk, etc.
RETURNING AN ITEM:
No problem with returning any item within 7 days of receipt or within 18 days of auction ending, which ever
comes first. This means you need to act promptly and if you are an international buyer you need to make
payment immediately to fit in the time frame. We will refund your auction ending price, no questions asked
(and we prefer none) and if we made a serious error in grading judgment, we'll also give you future auction
credit toward to offset shipping both ways you would have paid (what a deal). But, Insurance is NOT refundable,
no matter what, because... duh.. that is why you are paying for it, to cover your butt. For example, If you wrecked
your car, insurance covers the replacement of the car or its value, you don't get your insurance premiums back too.
This is OUR POLICY, live with it or do not bid. Of course, we prefer you bid because we have nice silver age
marvel comics. Returns received 35 days after auction ending with lose 15% of value and 25% after 45 days
since we lose our final value fee credit. Your refund will be the same form of payment you made or if you are
willing to take your refund as a credit toward our future auctions then we will increase the amount your refund
(what a deal!).
FILING A DISPUTE:
I personally guarantee you that there is NEVER a reason to contact ebay/Paypal to file a dispute over an
auction of ours REGARDLESS of what the problem is, because I WILL Fix your problem so much better than how
ebay/Paypal will. This means if you contact ebay or Paypal with out trying to fix a problem with me first, even
though ebay and Paypal will ask you if youhave tried working this our with the buyer and you answer 'Yes' but
you are actually telling a BIG untruth because EVERY SINGLE person that has every filed a dispute has not tried
first calling me on the phone and/or sought email resolution, but because the buyer gets so antsy and has
NO patience they jump at contacting ebay/paypal is somewhat of an ugly subject because although we fully
back ebay's policies, we find an inherent problem when a buyer files a paypal/ebay dispute. Besides the issues
discussed above, you see, let's say you won 10 books from us and you wanted to return one of them because
your great grandma bought you the same thing and you want to return the one you bought from us and you
emailed us on Friday and we didn't return your email on Monday and you panicked because you thought you
might get stuck with two of the same things so you initiated a DISPUTE. Well, this is a problem because once
a dispute is made there is only 2 possible outcomes: Either the dispute is ended or a FULL refund is made.
Well, if you only deserve a partial refund, then we have a problem. Also, I feel that filing a dispute means you
don't trust me and I have never given anyone the shaft on eBay! As ferverously stated above, I want this to
be a positive transaction and am willing to always make things right for the buyer. I take it as a personal
offense that a person filing a dispute feels I am cheating them. If you have a problem that needs resolved,
just call me on the phone at 509-521-2912. That being said, if you feel that you are inadequately qualified to
call but would rather be the type to initiate a dispute, buy from another seller who does not offer the guarantee
that I do. Do you understand? Either communicate or don't bid. Just because I have not responded back to you
yet does not mean you have communicated. I am gone to comic shows most weeks and have travel for work
too so I get behind on emails but I NEVER cheat anyone. If I haven't responded to you there is a reason why.
It doesn't matter how many emails you send, if I am out of town, sick or whatever, I can only get back with
you when I am able, please be patient or if you can't wait ... CALL ME ON MY PHONE, but do not threaten me
with negative feedbacks or if you file a dispute you will likely be put on my NO BIDDERS LIST and what is
REALLY stupid is that if you follow my directions, you will get NICE, FREE Silver Age Comics Free---
did you hear that? FREE! I PROMISE, I will take care of you if you are patient and friendly, you can ONLY
BENEFIT by getting discounts/free stuff/super deals. There is NEVER a reason to file a dispute; I can personally
guarantee you that we will take care of you to your satisfaction by offering a refund, refund and credit, partial
refund or credit and you keep the book. Sometimes we even give you future credit too in addition to everything
else as you get. We want you to be happy with your transaction. But as noted above, if you file a dispute,
you'll NEVER reap any of these benefits and you will never bid on our items again. But do you know what?
90+% of people apparently do not even read this because without even talking to me first... they file a dispute...
This is soooo stupid, because you forfeit all the free stuff and my personal guarantee of extra satisfaction all
because some buyers have a briar up their pa-toody.
And one other thing that can be REALLY irritating is that since I do not live my life on the computer, (as some
seem to think that I personally sit in front of the computer 24 hours a day just waiting for you to email us),
if you have a question, please do not send 20 emails in a row. If we haven't responded to your first email,
it is because we are not online and sending a whole bunch of emails within a short time is not going to speed
up the matter. It seems the more emails a person sends, the more unpleasant they become. The best & fastest
way to get a response is to send nice and friendly emails, so please re-read what you write before you send it.
Have You Ever Said...
WHERE'S THE ITEM
THAT I PAID FOR?
I am very fortunate that over 99.8% are so wonderful to deal with. But the tiny .2%, make life miserable for
reputable sellers. If you have not received your item in a timely fashion, this is what you do: 1.
DON'T PANIC We did mail out your item in a timely fashion, but
international orders can be delayed at customs for up to 6 weeks, sometimes longer; it's not our fault if
this happens. Don't worry, we will protect you, just don't get 'all huffy' thinking we took your money and
didn't send you the item you won. We guarantee that you will get it, just be patient. If you are going to
worry about this either pay for express mail with tracking or Don't bid on our items. 2.
DON'T FILE A DISPUTE
Some people carry a large chip on their shoulder because they think that if an item is delivered when they
think it should be or it doesn't meet their expectation, rather than call or wait for an email response from us,
they file a dispute. Just because you can file a dispute doesn't mean you need to. Do you realize that we
will 'bend over backwards' for you to please you, but it you have a question or concern, do not file a dispute
as if you think that this will make things happen more quickly. IT WILL NOT. This will drag on for an additional
month or more. Actually, I will personally guarantee you this: You file a dispute, you will NEVER bid on our
items again, period. If you do not have the courage to call me if you need an answer more quickly than our
email, that DON't bid on our auctions. We seek to give you the best deal possible, but did you realize when
you file a dispute that ebay cancels our 'top seller discount and we lose 15% of our monthly fee credit for
up to 3 months and that means we lose about $1000.00 over a $20 book, because you thought it was only
worth $15. We try to keep our handling rices low but a few numbskulls, who should never be allowed to bid
on ebay, want to see how big of a jerk they can be. And I can guarantee you that every person that files a
dispute has not read this paragraph. 3.
DON'T SEND EMAILS TO US EVERY COUPLE HOURS
Referring to the above numbskulls, this is what they almost almost do: They receive an item, maybe they
changed their mind, thought a VG they paid for should be a NM, or maybe have a legitimate issue with a book,
but REGARDLESS when their item arrives and they open their mail, let's say Thursday night at 7:00pm at 8:00pm
they send me an email about the making a return, then Friday they send another email as a second request.
Finally, after worrying all day about this book, they can't sleep and so at 1:00am on Saturday they file a dispute
with ebay! Yep, 3 days went by al right, of course it was only about 30 hours, but to them it was Thur-Sat and
so they had within their right to file a dispute. As you read our soapbox, you'll see that we are only online
a couple times a week, so we haven't yet seen the quickly sent emails, but now we have to deal with the filed
dispute. And if they only read the soapbox below they would know that we would have taken care of them 125%
if they had only been patient with us. Sadly, the person who files a dispute has never read this. If you cannot
wait for us to answer an email, or be willing to call me, Please save both of us a headache, by NOT
PARTICIPATING IN OUR AUCTIONS. I am SO EASY to work with and will help you any way I can to make this a
very positive transaction, but I am gone 4 days a week buying comic collections & sometimes can't respond to
emails for a week. But if you have a problem, I GUARANTEE I will fix it to your satisfaction, just be patient with me. **********************************************************
International shipping must have declared value. Please don't expect to buy a $500 book and
ask us to put a $4 customs value on it so you can evade taxes and make it impossible to protect
ourselves from tracking. Do you have any idea the risks involved if the item gets lost or damaged?
We want you to get your item safe and sound. Please don't ask us to do something illegal or what
could make this a turn into a nightmare. We want you to be happy with your purchase.
