earlier today the comic I most regretted selling has been restored to my collection. It is an Incredible Hulk 2. The story on this begins in 2010. I saw a Hulk 2 raw listed on Ebay that looked seriously under graded as a buy it now for $400 dollars. It looked to be 6.5 to 7.0 but was listed as a vg minus 3.5. I watched it thinking it was to good to be true . I waited and watched the seconds tick down to zero but did not buy it. No one did. A week later it was relisted as an auction starting at $400. So the second time around I watched all week until the final 15 seconds and placed my bid. At the same time another bid came in. Fortunately for me the other person bid $400 even and I got it for a few bucks more.
So I got it and it was sharp with white pages. Sent it to CGC and it came back 6.5 with white pages. I was selling comics on Ebay then to get money to buy other comics for my collection so I listed it right away with some others to make a quick profit. The seller did tell me he knew it was better than a vg minus but he always under graded on higher dollar comics so there would be no issues with the buyers. I listed it with an $850 reserve and it slowly went up to about $800 in the last hour. With a few seconds left a bid came in which met my reserve and it sold for the $850 price. I had no problem selling it at the time as I saw a 6.5 and 7.0 sell at that time and thought I would pick up one later down the road with no problem. However some time passed and I decided I needed to get a nice copy for myself but was shocked how much the book went up and not many mid grade copies. I could have probably waited to December this year to get a 6.5 if I could find one as I get a bonus from my employer at that time but I saw this one on line for $1400 which for a 5.0 is a decent price at this time so I got it. Not as nice as the one I sold but the price was right and I'm happy with one a grade and a half less. Regret over selling that book is the main reason I don't sell anymore.
It's all buying for me now at least until I retire which is over five years away. Here it is.
