Section I: EC, Kurtzman, Pre-Code Horror

Section II: Silver Age Marvel, a Couple of DCs, and a Signed Snoopy

Section III: R. Crumb and the Underground

Welcome to the first of many PBA Comics sales to come. We will bring you the best overlooked gems in the world of comics, all the good stuff that hasn't been vacuumed up by the big guys yet. It's a niche that no other auctioneers have filled, and PBA is glad to step up and lead the way. This time around it's EC, Kurtzman, Pre-Code Horror and Undergrounds, and a sampling of comics from a previously undiscovered single-owner collection of Silver Age Marvels. The collector bought his 1960s Marvels off the stands as a boy, and has kept them in storage for decades. The handful of Marvels in this sale represent a fraction of his collection. More to follow, friends - stay tuned for details.

PBA Dynamic Bidding

 
When you place an absentee bid online, PBA's Dynamic Bidding will calculate your absentee bid against competing absentee bids and determine the current high bid amount.  So, for example, if you place an absentee bid of $200 on an item with a minimum bid of $100, you will be notified that you are the high bidder and the bid is at $100.  If a second bidder then places a bid of $150, your bid will be incremented up to $160. The under bidder will also be notified by email that their bid was outbid with a link to the item to enter a higher bid if desired. The current high bid will be the starting bid when the lot comes up in the live auction itself. In addition to providing full transparency, Dynamic Bidding will allow you to make more informed decisions.
