Title: Wolfman binder
Post by: Wolfman on April 20, 2021, 09:17:20 PM
I just happened to check eBay, and saw the 1960's Wolfman binder at a BIN price of $22.99. Needless to say, I bought it as quick as possible. It's slightly warped, but no apparent issues with the front, so I think I got a steal at that price.

Great grab! What luck! I hope you don't get a message saying it has been mysteriously "lost"!  :(

No worries. It's already been shipped. There's one on Etsy now for $450. Nicer than mine, but not for that price.

Seems like a reasonable price to me:  http://www.universalmonsterarmy.com/forum/index.php?topic=31063.0

Your point being?  ???

Well if a Frankenstein binder fetched $22.99 four years ago, it's perfectly reasonable for a Wolfman binder to fetch the same today.

It actually looks free of rust. You should therefore be able to shine it up quite nicely with just Pledge or any other household cleaner.

You can probably flatten it out, if you put a couple of concrete blocks on it for about 5 years.  ;D

One blunder by a seller does not beget a similar blunder by another seller.

That's a possibility, although they may have seen others that sold for a lot more.

Great to see folks can find great deals from time to time.   I love when this happens for a collector...not so much a flipper.

What a terrific piece!  What a great score!  Congratulations.  I had a Frankie binder, but I've not seen that Wolfman!  Cool.

So was it up to snuff when it arrived?

I don't recall seeing that. Either way, it's clearly an original. I have a repro of the Dracula (Samjo), and it's not sealed on all 4 sides, which allows you to remove the artwork from the top. This is sealed on all 4 sides.
