Cant say people haven’t been warned about that book and CGC…
If there is any color break during a harvest moon, while 6/10 of CGC employees are able to see Gary the CGC chicken’s shadow, then that equals a 9.4 + 1.8 -1.4, but not a 9.8. It’s simple.
Their grading consistency needs to improve. I have FF#1 Newsstand CGC 9.2 that has dozens of color breaking spine tics. Others look flawless with the same or lower grade.
Oh, see that got a .2 deduction because Debbie brought carnitas tacos on that particular Taco Tuesday. Graders named Mortecai, incidentally, were allowed to add .2 during that same Taco Tuesday.
If you’re to specific they’ll know you have a spy working there.
OOOOH! You’re referring to corporate espionage Fridays! That’s where the caught spies get to decide ALL the grades without looking at the books!
I slip $5 bills in each comic that says " 9.8 plz "
The only 3 already slabbed books I paid over $50 for that I picked up this year. Finally got the UF4 to round out the display
Hey Alana, I noticed that is a 4.0 and you have recommended picking up first ghost rider 4.0 a few weeks ago. Any coincidence in the 4.0 on older books? Better upside once they get hot? I’m curious since you really know a lot about comic collecting.
you made me pull the trigger on a5.5 today … been waiting to get a better grade cheap, but that time is up after watching the 1st episode. Porbably won’t come down for a while
Dang it…I just sold my 6.0 a few months back I had bought to flip…its a cool comic nonetheless!
I figure Swordsman will have the Kang effect like with the Loki series. Once the character is “revealed” to the masses, and KCC lets the world know about #19, the book should get hot. Then it will make the Coverprice top 10 list and get hotter.
High grade silver age and Bronze Age has less potential buyers because prices are so crazy these days. I’ve always been a believer in it’s better to own the book in low grade than not own one at all. The low grades move quicker because that’s what more people can afford and have close to the same return on investment % wise. You can always sell your low grade copy in the future and upgrade your copy with the funds if need be and since the value grows at close to the same rate no matter what grade it doesn’t hurt you bank account as bad. I’ve always looked at it like this a cover less action comics still goes for a ton of money eventually other major keys get old enough and they will be just as sought after in any grade like the golden age DC keys.
Both examples you gave are anecdotal. Your personal experience doesn’t hold any more water than that LOUD minorities personal opinions.
