  1. A second upvote for Camelot. Kim and Tony are great to work with. I frequently purchase books and have the rights to my limited set through their store. They're professional, friendly, and super helpful. I couldn't recommend them enough.
  2. To anyone interested, I'm selling my #500 set of SubPress Game of Thrones, Clash of Kings, and Knight of the Seven Kingdoms (as well as rights to future #500s in the series direct from Sub Press). Asking $2,750. Send offers and inquiries!
  3. Glod--how much are you asking for the SubPress FFC?



  4. Great advice from Becca and I echo it. I think the value of a lettered set won't change a thing with regard to its value unless the particular buyer wants or sees something unique in it. With regard to insurance, I went through the bidding process and found that insurance can be exorbitant. My recollection is that paying the premiums each year would quickly chew up the value of the books within a handful of years. Maybe I just got bad quotes, but it ultimately wasn't worth it to me. Accordingly, I try to self-insure: books are kept away from direct sunlight in a barrister bookcase in a moisture and temperature controlled-room. If there's a catastrophe at my home (storm, fire, etc.) I think I'll chalk up a loss of any collector's items as a sunk cost, push for my homeowner's insurance to pay for it, and--if they won't--maybe lose a little sleep but likely just be grateful that I and my family are OK. TL;DR: Insurance will be expensive. Get lots of quotes and see if it makes sense for you financially and economically.
  5. That's probably about right. SoS has been, at least lately, the hardest to find orphaned copies of. It also happens to be my personal favorite of the illustrators--Charles Vess. The covers are fantastic, as are the interior illustrations.
  6. Cool find. Good luck finding a buyer!
  7. We're best buds and brothers. It's not often that I can get something that he'd so appreciate (and would likely appreciate in value for him). I might hang onto it for him, but who knows how long he'll be in NYC. There will be other chances.
  8. I bought two Ultra's. I was going to give one to a brother who is also a super fan, but he's moving to New York and is afraid he won't be able to take it with him and store easily. So, it looks like I've got an Ultra Box to sell. PM me if you're interested!
  9. Yeah, not great at all. Someone ought to share this with George and George's people. For that kind of scratch, it ought to at least be fully wrapped, packaged, and protected from damage--both inside and out.
  10. Mine arrived yesterday. For a $600 box, they sure didn't package it all that carefully. Mine wasn't damaged, that I could see, but there were some bits of paper glued or stuck on the box. The build quality is nice, but certainly not "Ultra Luxe." I mostly got it for the book, though, which is in good shape. Color me mildly disappointed.
  11. Yes, it shows that payment has been made but that it's "unfulfilled" on shipping. I sent an email but no reply.
  12. I don't think mine has even shipped yet.
  13. Got the ornament this week. Anyone else surprised at how chintzy and cheap it was? If the rest of the Box contents are like that, I'll be hard pressed to believe that $600 will be worth it.
  14. Down to 3 . . . .
  15. Just got mine, so that's one less.
  16. There's a new matching set up for consignment at Camelot Books. $6,000, but some of the books and slipcases are in rough shape. http://camelotbooks.com/books/detail/clash-of-kings-a-storm-of-swords-a-feast-of-crows
  17. Good luck, Dino! May your search for the grail be fruitful!
  18. Just a reminder that I'm selling my full, matching, fine Sub Press set. It's currently up for auction on ebay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/-/252487327989? ValHall and a few others on the board can vouch for me, my OCD packaging, and my responsiveness. Make an offer! I'd much rather see these books in the hands of someone in this community!
  19. eBay auction came and went. The set is still available. Reach out if you want to make an offer. Knight of the Seven Kingdoms is in hand now. I also have some straggling Meisha Merlins--Game of Thrones #40 and Clash of Kings #40 if anyone's interested.
  20. Nope. Had a buyer in France who backed out last minute. Still available if anyone's interested, but I haven't been pushing it lately.
  21. I've had a few inquiries in the recent past, so I wanted to give this its own topic in case there is more interest generally on the board. I'm offering my matching set of SubPress ASoIaF, #267. I had a sale set up that unfortunately fell through on the buyer's side. Now that my books are all packed and ready to go, I'm motivated to sell. (Truth be told, I'm also motivated to sell given the impending birth of a new baby at evogeler house and our purchase of a minivan). The set includes: A Game of Thrones (including chapbook); A Clash of Kings (including chapbook); A Storm of Swords (including bookmarks); A Feast for Crows; A Dance with Dragons; A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms (already paid for, to be delivered by Camelot Books upon publication); and Rights to purchase any future books in the series with matching numbers 267 (to be purchased and delivered directly through Camelot Books). Additionally, I'm throwing in a first edition Game of Thrones in silver foil. Pictures of all books can be found here: http://1drv.ms/1GQhOGJ. The original sale price was for $7,750 (full disclosure--these books will go to the highest offer, if there are multiple offers). Make me an offer. Share with your friends. Let's find these books a good home! Feel free to drop me a PM.
  22. Relisted and lowered the price. Again, feel free to PM me with any offers. I can discount it by the price of the eBay fees. http://www.ebay.com/itm/-/252449582754?
  23. Just listed this on eBay. If someone wants to work personally through this, I can discount the eBay fees from the final price. Thanks in advance! http://www.ebay.com/itm/-/252413645058?
  24. Mostly flat unless they're in my barrister bookcase or in a slipcase.
