    Action Comics 1 newly graded FMV?

    That was definitely their policy.

    X-Men 1, a risky buy?

    The problem with the DC Silver Age keys isn't that there are more of them (they're way scarcer than the Marvel keys as already mentioned), it's that they are almost all recycled Golden Age heroes/teams. I can't even think of a single 1st appearance of a major DC character that occurred in the Silver Age?
  3. Auctions start ending today, but this book (and more) end on the morrow! Tomahawk 116 F+ Classic Neal Adams cover
  4. Auctions ending soon, I have a couple el-cheapo lots with some nice books in them...Wonder Woman, DC Horror, Lois Lane, etc.

    Mask Comics actual pricing

    The CC auction next month has nice, mid-grade copies of both #1 and #2, will be interesting to see where they end.

    Incredible Hulk #181 - is it *that* red-hot?

    So we can call this defect "HULK SMASH!"? It's a common printing defect on this book, affecting maybe a quarter of the copies (guessing)?

    Incredible Hulk #181 - is it *that* red-hot?

    Thanks for sharing, book looks beautifully centered but I see this copy suffers from the printer roll/smear through "Canadian Super-Hero".

    Yep, the AF15 market peaked (~Summer/Fall 2017) long before the stock market did (Fall 2018), The stock market has actually been on a tear the last 2 months (up ~10+% from the mid-Dec lows) but there are just so many AF15's on the market right now with multiple copies offered in every CL, CC, and Heritage auction. The other Marvel Keys (FF1, ToS 39, X-men 1, etc) all had huge jumps in 2018, will be curious to see what happens in this market over the next 1-2 years.

    Wow, got a pic?

    Incredible Hulk #181 - is it *that* red-hot?

    Yep, the recent Heritage 9.8 looked a lot better than this copy as far as aesthetics (which I guess what CVA is trying to award), but it had at least 2 obvious spine stresses which I wouldn't expect on a 9.8. There are some head-scratching books with CVA stickers, not sure what their criteria is but off-centered books like the ComicLink 9.8 copy should not qualify.

    I doubt the CVA sticker matters much, if any. Pedigree + White Pages = $$$$.

    Should sellers leave prices up on sold books?

    Sounds interesting, how much does it cost?
