Re: New world record for a comic book - Sept. 9, 2021 - CGC 9.6 Amazing Fantasy #15

What do you all think about restored copies for these books? I imagine any copy (even coverless) is going to be coveted to some degree. But what is more valuable? A high to mid-grade restored copy, or a rag (1.0-2.0)? I'm not sure what I would prefer. I do not like or own any restored copies, but i...

Re: New world record for a comic book - Sept. 9, 2021 - CGC 9.6 Amazing Fantasy #15

Oh wow! What will be the next Action 1, Detective 27 or ASM 15? Hulk 181? ASM 15 isn't a big deal. :P AF 15 is a big deal though. :lol: Other biggies are Superman #1 and Batman #1, Captain America #1, in 1939, 1940, and 1941, respectively. But to guess what the next big, big book will be, I'll gues...

Re: Acclaim stand-alone -wtb

Hello, does any one have a copy they would consider selling? Haven’t seen any pop up on eBay aside from that absolute beater! I'll have to admit, I don't know which book you're requesting.

Btw bone 1 had a print run less than 10% of Harbinger 1.
Right, and if CGC 9.0s of Harbinger #1 start selling for 10% of CGC 9.0 Bone #1 prices when they hit 30 years old next year, the 9.8s will be much, much higher than today.

Re: Marvel U.K. Pence Variants

I understand your perspective. I just, respectfully, disagree with it. You can't compare the demand of an Amazing Fantasy #15 to that of a UK priced... anything. Well, unless it's Amazing Fantasy #15 (but I don't think the UK prices came until the 70s - could be off there). Those big ticket items a...

Re: Marvel U.K. Pence Variants

Despite not being a “thing”, finding pence keys in grade, if at all, can be very difficult. No one is disputing that. Your original post asked why they were less costly. The answer is no demand. Rarity unto itself doesn't make things pricey. That's correct... however, when there is a slight increas...

Maybe someone is betting Harbinger #1 nostalgia at age 30 (in 2022) will be like Bone #1 nostalgia this year. :hm:

Bone #1 (1991) has three sales over $3,400 each for CGC 9.0 in the past 90 days. :o

If even a fraction of that happens with Harbinger #1, it could be worth it.

Re: Another lapsed collector, returning to the 90s

Oh, Deathmate is dreadful . I recently re-read it and was really stunned by a) how confusing they made it with no clear reading order b) cut crucial story stuff out for the preview editions and c) had such a lackluster story. But, like I said, it made me curious about Valiant characters and I start...

Okay, I didn't really think of this.

Deathmate isn't the highlight of Valiant story-telling, but anything that leads people to the best Valiant stuff can be a legit part of the journey.
