FENSTHE SPOOK- I enjoy this guy’s channel. He covers older books, and underrepresented genres like WAR and HORROR comics, that I really have gotten into.
He does not post often, but that just gives you more time to catch up with his older videos. Great content, and naturally personable. Great channel.
And his take on graded/CGC books is similar to mine. I do not mind them for select, more valuable books, but I really find it more cost effective to just purchase the slabbed books I want, at the grade I want , rather than the expense and INSANE delay to get the book back from one of the grading organizations. And since I am a very good deal hunter, I find it typically more cost effective as well. Time is also a big factor in any purchase decision.
I hear some people on Youtube going on ‘Well I’ve wanted and searched for this book for three years, but I didn’t want to pay $10 for it but I found it today in a $1 bin. Yay.’ Now you do not have to be the smartest person in the world to figure out 3 years , of even semi-actively scouring and thinking of a book, gas, mileage, and TIME, adds up to a lot more than $10. P
Seriously I hear some of these people crow about finding a book after multiple years of looking, and having paid $10 or $20 less for it. I’m not an immediate satisfaction guy, but I am a cost analysis,time and effort factored in guy. And in no crunching of the #s, does that type of minor savings outweight the time and effort expended even just thinking about the purchase. Much less the multiple boxes scoured just looking for the book.
It is that kind of poor thinking, that has Trump in office right now. 🙂
People not being adequately able to see the real cost of one situation over another.
Okay, that was a pretty large diversion, rant I just went on, I do that.
It’s my thing. 🙂
