Please take the time to educate yourself as to what you are buying, the things to look out for, and the person you are dealing with. In every area of collectibles there are people out there looking for bargain prices on highly desirable items.
If you're shopping for bargains and aren't fully aware of all the warning signs to look out for you'll quickly find yourself in trouble. The nature of the internet makes it very easy for scammers to find you or you to find a scammer. Slow down, ask questions, and talk to people that are known and trusted in the hobby. The most important thing to remember is that nobody is giving away free money, particularly to you if you don't know what you're buying.
Authenticity, originality, condition, and after the sale support are all much more important aspects to consider. We're well known in the hobby for being very knowledgeable regarding what we're dealing in. We've been full time in this business since 1988, and have no plans of doing anything else.

We're here to help you figure which direction to go, we're here when you're ready to start shopping around and consider buying things, and we'll be here years from now if you need help selling your collection.
