Somebody tell me this book did not just sell for the asking price.

I sold mine a couple of years ago. Bought it for $100. Sounds like Greg may need to sell his copy now.

It's more than I would pay for most comics, but congrats to the purchaser and the seller if it makes them happy.

Why? Money is about the most common thing there is... like air. I use it up all the time, then get more just like it.

CGC 10.0 Rai #0? Now, that's something worth keeping. :D

If that is a true selling price, that is hands down #1 on my regrettable sales list. I should have kept it.

Not going to lie, I sold all of my 9.8 Rai #0s this weekend. :thumb:

And will use that cash to buy a new OA cover. :lol:

Rai 0 is the only 9.9 I got from a raw submission.

This book is going nuts on eBay. It has been for about a week or two. It looks like the average asking price for 9.8 is around $250-$300. That is the "matte" copy too. Glossy is obviously higher. I know these are only asking prices but it does show a trend. There is one seller on eBay that constantly has a 9.8 for auction. He has one up for 7 day auction, sells it, then puts up another one. He has been doing this for over a year. Is the movie the only reason for this or is there something else I am not aware of? I love seeing this book sell like this. Everyone here has had copies for years so it's nice to watch the madness. I do really hope the movie kills at the box office so we can watch the other key VH1 books go up.

I haven't watched this book for some time. Sold my excess 9.8s off, but I do see the listings being posted in my searches, and it's definitely trending higher than I ever thought it would. While it's probably my favorite V1 issue, it's a glut book. You couldn't give these away at one point.

GPAnalysis.com shows the final price as $2,650 - so someone must have done "Buy It Now"

This copy (CGC Serial #0616290013) was graded in March 2015, and there are no records of a prior public sale.

I know Dinesh posted about the Rai 0 books in a post regarding CBSI where it came in at #8. Back before this post, it was starting to dip a little. I'd been watching, and was ready to pounce, then it took off. Darn my luck! Still don't have a 9.8 Glossy

Looks like there are 5 9.9s. I have one. Someone bought this for an astronomical sum. I wonder who has the other 3?

You keep talking like that you might pry the 10 out of Greg's warm, living hands. :P
