The Latest Phil Comics Auctions (May 2013)
200 separate auctions have been put up on ebay by comics dealer Phil Shrimpton, better known as Phil-Comics. Here is some of the best stuff.
The first thing that caught my eye when looking through was this very early Broons book from 1949. This is the fourth Broon annual and is very rare; already bidding has reached £100!
You can see a lot more photos of the book on at auction:
Next up is the 1963 Beano summer special, in fine - near mint condition! One in similar condition sold for £1,371 back in 2010, and going by the condition of this one I wouldn't be surprised if it sold for a similar amount - if not more. Saying that, I don't know how many people are willing to pay that much, maybe the one person who was has already got one.
There are some fantastic photos of this one so I'd recommend you check them out.
Also in great condition is this Dandy Monster Annual from 1947, which has been graded fine - fine + condition.
One thing I'd really like but is probably going to shoot up in price is this bound volume of Jag, with issues is VG to Fine condition.
And finally the first issue of Smash, in VG- condition. So far only one bid has been placed, but I suspect there will be a few more.
As I've said there are 200 auctions up right now, with bidding ending on Sunday 2nd and Monday 3rd June, so you've got plenty of time to look through them! Here is a link to take you to the home page to browse through all of his comics currently online.
Phil also has a website, which you can find here:
