Of the folks that visit the forum- have to guess 50 percent are here for nothing but flipping

Nothing anyone can do and most careless- so why worry yourself

Hell - mondo built a flipper barn with all the sale money :wink:

They probably account for a growing austin economy with all the goods prints they are selling to the locals, who are flipping in mass.... See avengers sales

I've sold three posters in nearly 4 years of collecting. Sometimes I wish I could bring myself to trade more so the wallet wouldn't get diddle'd but the urge to hoard is too great.

there's nothing wrong with making a decision to sell a print .... :pint:

My collection got to the point where it's hard to even manage and still appreciate- right now I can't find a print with a $750 offer from an EB'r :hanging: :hanging:
