    The $261K copy didn't have as bad of a miswrap as the CC copy and it didn't have nearly as much tanning as the CC copy AND most importantly, it didn't have COW pages.

    It's common knowledge that just the COW page designation would be enough to keep the price down.

    Pretty much what I told the guys in the GA threads. They kinda hee-haw'd at my comments.

    Nothing that wasn't already said just a few posts up.

    I guess the PQ and the slightly bigger mis-wrap will be the excuse for the 69K difference.

    Still an impressive price.

    This is iirc the third 8.0 sale after the CL sale

    Well, someone has to show some enthusiasm for this modern market, why not you?

     

    Wow ! I'm in the Modern forum !? doh! I saw showcase4 and thought that was the thread topic.

    you wouldn't believe how easy it would be for me to walk away from posting on these Boards, and never look back!

    all you guys ( and gals ) have to do is respond right here, and tell me that's what you really want --- and poof / your wish will be granted !

    Why ? You've been a member since 2006. Don't.

    But if I was still in the AF hunt, I woulda passed on the CC 8.0. But I'm super picky. (thumbsu

    Yes you are but judging by the copy you own I can understand why.

    Maybe you're right. Maybe your copy does trump both the CC and CL copies. Although between the two frankly the difference is not all that great. Except final hammer price.

     I believe the tanning and miswrap impacted the hammer. 2c

    Those factors seriously reduce that comic's eye appeal. 

    :juggle:

    Cause the ComicLink copy didn't have a misrap :makepoint: ( slightly less than the CC copy of course ) or slight tanning for that matter.

    But hey you guys are AF 15 8.0 holders so I get it.

    I am positive next visit I make to the thread, all the AF15 owners (especially those in higher grades) will certainly have negative comments to make on the CC copy to justify the low sale. :wink:

    Sure enough lol

    Yes, an impressive price but I can almost assure you if a nicer 8.0 comes up it will hit closer to the 261k target, and may surpass it. I believe the tanning and miswrap impacted the hammer. 2c

    AF 15 CGC 8.0 sold for 192K

    https://www.comicconnect.com/bookDetail.php?id=855235

    A LONG way from the record 261K another 8.0 sold for in 2017 on ComicLink

    I guess the PQ and the slightly bigger mis-wrap will be the excuse for the 69K difference. Or maybe the CVA sticker :eyeroll:

    Still an impressive price.

    Peter;

    I believe you are going to get the AF 15 speculators and investors in a tizzy here, especially in terms of that thread they have going on the SA boards about the continuing falling price for AF 15's.  :tonofbricks:

    This auction result and price comparison will only serve to heighten their level of anxiety.  :ohnoez:

    Of course, although most of us here laugh about the value of a CVA sticker, I would have to honestly say that recent auction results for various books would indicate there might be some actual value behind having this sticker on a slabbed book.  hm

    I am positive next visit I make to the thread, all the AF15 owners (especially those in higher grades) will certainly have negative comments to make on the CC copy to justify the low sale. :wink:
