    Time for a thread bump.

    Tec 168 prices have been soaring. If Jokers origin is doing this, shouldn’t there be a similar uptick of interest for Jokers first appearance? 
     

    or has it happened already and I just missed it?

    sure, but the price point for a Bat 1 has most people out of that game so the next best thing that are miles cheaper are Joker covers and the Tec 168 Origin...

    Although that won't stop collectors from trying, even if that means restored. The 'cool' factor lies in Batman 1.

    I, too, passed on it earlier this year, and then again last night, due to the unsightly name. I own books with kids names written on them(Tommy Thorson, anyone?), and I guess to me it just depends on its placement on the cover and it’s level of neatness. 

    Tommy had a cool last name: Thorson. Verily I tell you. By Odin ! :sumo:

    Ernest. Umm...not so much.

    Time to revive this thread..  No I do not have a new Pre-Robin Tec book, but just wanted to comment on the Tec 33 CGC "3.5" that just ended at CL this evening.  Book was previously in a 3.0 holder about 7 months ago where it sold on CL for around $27,800. Hammer price today as a 3.5 was $27,250. I guess the good ole upgrade for a quick flip didn't work for the consignor :p

    from a PM I sent to an insterested boardie:

    That book was bought by Stephen Ritter ( WorldWide Comics ) at auction on ComicLink for $27,805 5/28/2019 as a 3.0. I think it circulated raw before that on ebay a while before.

    He cracked it out and was selling raw as a "4.0" (full grade higher than CGC grade) on his site for 38.5K.

    Got fed up after a while, had it pressed re-subbed and managed the 3.5. Same asking price.

    It has a "pending sale" on his site.

    https://www.wwcomics.com/comicdetail.asp?Product_ID=Detective_33_88484

    It will likely be shilled on ComicLink (apparently not hard enough)

    It didn't sell strong as a 3.0, it won't either as a 3.5. The reason is obvious. That particular copy will always under-sell, all things being "free of shenanigans."

    Scan for posterity
