Yeah. My buying-power will have to come in the form of trades. Buying at face from the original source and trading-up for those that I can't live without. I'm a patient noob, it will take time to build-up my collection of worthy trades. Meanwhile, while I wait for that certain Horkey to drop, I'll try and up my game by improving my buying-techniques, boosting pc and browser performance, net-connection, etc. It's a whole new game out there now and I'm crazy enough to love it.

Yeah, that's the method I'd use. Of course, I haven't come across any print that I'd be willing to pay that kind of mark-up. (That's just me.) If you really want the prints and have the money...I say, go for it.
Really? There are so many prints that are 5-10x face value and that doesn't stop me from buying. It sucks sometimes about the inflated rate but that is the fun of this hobby.
Oh for sure. I'll pay $800 for a '98 Jay Ryan Fugazi but I would never drop proper coin for some fudge I missed a week ago. Oh no no no :)

Never considered it...not once. If I miss...then it becomes all about the *next one*.

But what if you still want the Stout set a year for now, and it's up to $1000 a set? :)

I was looking for a smiley banging his head against a wall, but was disappointed.

They should delay shipping to make the insta-flippers sweat it out
