I just watched the TMNT episode of The Toys That Made Us on Netflix. Good stuff.

There's a reserve. I wonder if he will sell if it's not met....

There's a guy on the CGC boards with a helluva Mirage TMNT set in the registry (it's all 9.8's and 9.6's) and he was saying that "the last sale did seem a bit sketchy with the price finishing up much higher than previous sales at $90k and then immediately relisted. Between this book and Turtlemania Gold, it seems there's a bit of price manipulation being attempted at the moment...at least from where I'm sitting."

There was a $90K sale on Heritage, but it really came out of nowhere because the book had been trending toward $40,000 as a solid base price. The past couple of sales have reached $50,000, so that's likely the new base price, though, if another shows up quickly, the market could be smaller and it might go for $45,000 if there aren't as many buyers. Basically, CGC 9.8 TMNT #1 first printing has no ceiling, since there's no better TMNT book and no better grade. The rarity of previews/advertisements like Gobbledygook and later (unofficial) books like Turtlemania are fun, but that doesn't make them as good as "the real thing"... add the fact that there are already more copies of Amazing Fantasy #15 graded than there were TMNT #1 printed. TMNT #1 is a perfect storm book, regardless of grade, and the CGC 9.8s are the top.
