  1. Great list. Add: * You can ignore blatantly false claims of “high grade” in a sales listing
  2. Between 7.5 and 8.0. Probably 7.5 CGC hammers stains, but that's not that bad a stain and the book is otherwise 9.0ish. PS, hot book!!
  3. Dealer list significantly expanded. Artist-creator BILLY TUCCI confirmed. https://themiamicon.com/
  4. Gorgeous high grade Treasuries. Always loved DC Treasuries as a kid, and cherish the memories of having to ask mom for that extra $1 but you knew it was totally worth it.
  5. Is this an old-school, comic books and comic art show?
  6. They unwittingly did their part to create rarity, scarcity and thereby unintentionally manipulate supply, and indirectly demand in today's market. Let's take a moment to thank these sheep.
  7. Go get 'em, Mark. You looked good in your warm-ups on the courthouse steps this morning.
  8. Fantastic Four, Surfer, Doom, Galactus, Inhumans, Annihilus, Adam Warlock, Nova, X-Men, Wolverine, Namor, Blade, Iron Fist, Luke Cage, all waiting for Marvel Studios to bring them to life. And the Hulk, Thor, Dr. Strange, Black Panther, the Guardians, and Captain Marvel will all be there to lead the way. I think the best is yet to come.
  9. I'm bullish on the long-term prospects of Shang-Chi and SME 15. Assuming the opening movie is good and Marvel Studios makes another $1 billion or so with it (likely) -- in other words, assuming the character is embraced by audiences here and abroad -- Shang will be in the pop culture consciousness for the decade of the 2020s. Kevin Feige is clearly teeing the character up to open the door for Iron Fist, Luke Cage, and then eventually Daredevil, Punisher and the other Marvel "street-level" fighters on the big screen. And they will intersect with Blade and the Marvel 'monster-verse,' including Man-Thing. Shang-Chi, with Dr. Strange, will anchor these new "Avengers" or "Defenders" (don't be surprised if we get a Defenders movie). Thus, SME 15 is going to be a solid book for the next decade, most certainly in VF+ and higher. And Shang-Chi will usher in a new embrace over all things martial arts, much like what we had in the early- to mid-70s with Bruce Lee and to a lesser degree in the mid-80s with Karate Kid. Except that Marvel will find away to make martial arts ever cooler, and all the local Dojos around the country will be over-registered with kids wanting to learn Karate. Remember how bad- this guy was 40+ years ago? It's coming full circle in the 2020s, brothers. If someone 7 years ago would have told me TTA 13 would become a key, I would have laughed. Very few pre-2013 reported GPA activity for TTA 13 because nobody wanted to slab them; they were essentially illiquid. (A CGC 4.0 sold in 2009 for $43.) Or Iron Man 55? In 2011 (and for years before it), a 9.2 was a flat $300 book; today it's a $1,500 book. And Groot and Thanos are just supporting characters in the MCU.
