Our owners, Chris and Tammy Dyer, are experts in all things music and comics. Chris has been collecting comics since he stumbled upon his dad’s comics in the attic at age 6!  He started vending at shows at ONLY 11 years old! Comics weren’t his only love though. He absolutely loves MUSIC! Chris has seen Janis Joplin, Elvis, and even had the opportunity to dance on stage with Chuck Berry! Tammy was also a frequent concert goer, born with the love of comics. She grew up hanging out in the comic book section of her grandfather’s five and dime store on the square! With so much in common Chris and Tammy were fated to bring Towne Square Records and Comics to middle Tennessee!

Contrary to what you have undoubtedly heard, you can do either! You can even do both! It all depends on what type of collector you are, BUT there are some factors to consider before you unbox. Keeping your pop vinyls in their box makes for easy stacking and keeps the bobble head straight. Another thing to consider before you unbox is the base of the figure. If your display area is a bookshelf, then you are at risk of making it rain collectibles everytime you walk past it. On the flip side unboxing your figures makes your entire pop visible, and can be arranged in closer proximity to others. More room means more Pops, and you can never have TOO MANY POPS!

Collecting LP’s

Collecting vinyl records is an addictive and rewarding hobby, but it can be overwhelming if you don’t know how to start. Here’s a few tips and tricks to help you get started.

  1. Be picky but not too picky about the cover. Obviously, you want a record cover in nice shape without stains or rips, but don’t become so focused on the cover that you forget to check the actual record inside! If possible we recommend you listen BEFORE you buy!
  2. Keep your records organized. It doesn’t matter how, we suggest by genre, but keep your records in some type of order so you can easily find what you’re looking for! 
  3. Fill your collection with what you like. We see it all the time. Buyer thinks they found a good deal. Then, buys it. Does some research and realizes it’s not as AMAZING as they hoped and on the shelf it goes. That’s where we come in. We pay CASH for used vinyl records, so fix your collection oopsies with us TODAY!

How are Comics graded?

Comic book grades can’t be learned overnight or completely explained in a well written section on a comic book store’s website, but we’re going to try to give you a basic understanding anyway. Much is considered when grading a comic, from tears to staple rust, but here’s a breakdown of the 10 point system in which comics are graded:

10.0 Gem Mint

9.9 Mint

9.8 Near Mint/Mint

9.6 Near Mint +

9.4 Near Mint

9.2 Near Mint –

9.0 Very Fine/Near Mint

8.5 Very Fine +

8.0 Very Fine

7.5 Very Fine –

7.0 Fine/Very Fine

6.5 Fine +

6.0 Fine

5.5 Fine –

5.0 Very Good/Fine

4.5 Very Good +

4.0 Very Good

3.5 Very Good –

3.0 Good/Very Good

2.5 Good +

2.0 Good

1.8 Good –

1.5 Fair/Good

1.0 Fair

.5 Poor

Obviously even the rarest comic can lose a substantial amount of worth with a 2 and under grade so TAKE CARE OF YOUR COMICS! If you have any questions about how any of our comics received it’s grade feel free to ask. We love any excuse to talk about comics!
