  1. Dueling Detective 27s this spring

    Very well could be. Place some exploratory bids on the CC copy first to see if it will be in your range or not, and if not go after the Hake's copy. or buy both.
  2. Dueling Detective 27s this spring

    I think the influence of that is overstated - unless there are only ever two people at a time interested in a book at this level (or conversely I guess that bidding on the CC Action 1 is also over now since HA will offer one a few weeks later). And would hope the CC copy isn't done since it's a full grade higher.
  3. Dueling Detective 27s this spring

    $569,273.61 so there you go - about 5% below the current price of the one on the CC auction.
  4. Dueling Detective 27s this spring

    15% if you pay by cash or check.
  5. Rest In Peace, John Verzyl

    I can only second what everyone else has said - a true class act and a gentleman. First met him when I was part of the grading team for the first Sotheby's comic auction in 1991 and was amazed at how knowledgeable and friendly he was. The last couple of times I saw him was in Dallas when he could come by the Heritage poster auctions and he would remember everything we had talked about before and was ready to tell me new and amazing stories. He will be sorely missed.

    Gotcha. Couldn't quite remember the time frame.
  7. ComicConnect Feb 2018 auction

    According to Hake's website - Geppi bought Hake’s Americana and Collectibles on March 17, 2004, adding to his other businesses. . So certainly before the real estate crash and before he sold many items through Heritage. I remember the first auction catalogs after the purchase being nice, full color, and chock full of interesting things - just not comics.

    I've never understood why Geppi didn't start loading Hake's up with good comic material as soon as he purchased it, if he really wanted it to be a player in the comic auction business.
  9. Batman 1 CGC 3.5 vs Cap 1 CGC 3.5

    I noticed that in the Heritage listings where it lists the OPG prices. In 2.0 Bat 1 is almost double AA16, but AA16 is higher in 9.2, I think this is a nod to the rarity of the book in grade. Until the Bangzoom copy gets graded, we might not see another 9.0 universal copy. Might be one of the rare times where Overstreet has it right (not the price of course, which they rarely do - but the spread).
  10. Batman 1 CGC 3.5 vs Cap 1 CGC 3.5

    Thanks for posting - kind of what I thought with the Big 3 being far in front. My guess is that eventually AA16 drops down to at least 7th as Bat 1, Cap 1, and Marvel 1 all pass it in price.
  11. Batman 1 CGC 3.5 vs Cap 1 CGC 3.5

    The Heritage description for the Bat #1 states " The issue is currently ranked #4 in value on Overstreet's Top 100 Golden Age Comics, but that could change within the near future, as it chases down the current #3 -- All-American Comics #16 " That can't be right can it, is AA#16 the #3 book in Overstreet? I thought everything else was a distant 4th to Action 1, Tec 27 and Supe 1? But I wouldn't be surprised if the AA 16 can't catch where the Bat 1 is now, let alone what the final price might be.
  12. That would only be news to my mom.
  13. I always thought it was Sheena in Jumbo #1 (1938)
  14. Can Ebay be sued for this?

    If Mark Zaid doesn't take this I would call my local ACLU rep as quickly as possible.
  15. it's a pretty amazing market we are in when the words "struggled" and "only" are used to describe a book that is not unrestored selling for $400,000
