  1. It's done. I have finally finished my pre-Usagi Yojimbo #1 set of Usagi appearances in CGC 9.8. Just purchased the following on eBay. Also updated my post earlier in this thread to add this cover to all the over early Usagi covers.
  2. To the Star Wars Action Figure Variant Covers please add: Star Wars: The Action Figure Variant Covers 1 (6/20,Marvel Comics) Star Wars: The Action Figure Variant Covers 1 Variant Edition (6/20,Marvel Comics) Thanks Slots added 11/9/20. Thank you
  3. I saw that. It was a very weak 9.2, at least from a presentation perspective. There are 8.0s that present better than that book. I was trying to figure out how it was in a 9.2 case. I would not have touched it.
  4. But he's Canadian. All we do is talk about politics, hockey and the weather. Edit: Read this too fast - I read political views in general might not be well-received, not HIS political views might not be well-received. You may have a point there.
  5. And the 9.8 Signature series sold for $28,800 (Sept 10, 2020)
  6. That is interesting. Then you look at books on eBay and there is a House of Secrets 92 in CGC 9.2 just sitting there for $4,900, the last Hulk 181 CGC 9.2 sold for $6,200 on eBay and last Giant-size X-men 1 was 3,445.
  7. I do not have a GPA subscription anymore but it would be interesting if someone took a look at sales in the last 12 months in CGC 9.2 as the order of the books does not instinctively look right to me.
  8. To me each appearance of Usagi prior to Usagi #1 is more important than Usagi #1 as the story develops sequentially even if it jumps around a between titles. When reprinted in the TPBs and Hardcover books it follows the Albedo, Critters and Summer Special in order published. I am glad I did my run of Albedo and Critters books primarily last year before this big run up in prices.
  9. Likely but I do not think it will raise by the same percentage as Albedo #3. Given that the Usagi cover is on the back cover of #3 and difference in print runs Albedo #4 might be a better bet from an investment standpoint. But since it is Usagi you should buy both and enjoy them and not worry about price. Print runs by Albedo issue* Albedo NR 1 (5-color cover) June 1984 - 500 Copies Albedo NR 1 (4-color cover) September 1984 - 1500 copies Albedo NR 2 November 1984 - 2000 copies Albedo NR 3 May 1985 - 10,000 copies Albedo NR 4 August 1985 - 6000 copies *According to Comma
  10. An Albedo #2 CGC 9.8 signed and sketched by Stan Sakai is in the upcoming Heritage Auction Signed Albedo 2
  11. Sweet Doomsday Squad 3. And the lone 9.9 early Usagi book.
  12. I bought my copy off someone on the Usagi Yojimbo message boards. When he sent it to me it was signed by Stan Sakai, was remarked and he included the envelop and mailer Stan had sent it to him in like 2 decades ago.
