  1. Action Comics 1 - Cover Color Guide

    Except of course the original art from the first page that were cut up for use as the first daily newspaper strip.
  2. That can't be correct. Mitch tells us all the time that it's the Hong Kong billionaires who are rushing to buy these books because of the massive popularity of superhero movies (except for Wonder Woman of course, and that is if they can pry them away from the hands of the Russian oligarchs).
  3. Detective Comics #27 CGC 9.2

    All Star 8?
  4. Detective Comics #27 CGC 9.2

    Would certainly explain why Mastro has said he can't find the 8.0 copy anymore - because there's not one to find. And totally agree. If that very light crease at the bottom right could be made to vanish, very easy to imagine this in a 9.2 holder.
  5. Detective Comics #27 CGC 9.2

    20K would have bought any book in the late 70s. Just ask John Snyder.
  6. MF73 CGC 9.4 Mile High

    What about Plastic Man and Blackhawk? And not to mention Ducks, Tarzan, Lone Ranger and some other Dell titles. Or are we only talking DC characters?
  7. 9.4 All-Star 8 up for auction

    D'oh! correct - and one has sold higher. Supe 1 is such a mega-key I tend to forget it's a non-first appearance. Ok, any non-first appearance outside of Superman #1

    or it could be because they didn't feel it was worth a million
  9. 9.4 All-Star 8 up for auction

    How could it be the wrong venue when there has already been a $3 million sale on said venue, and two of the books sold for record prices (double the previous sales)? Almost a million dollars for AS8 (As Duck pointed out - more than any other GA book except Action 1 and Tec 27). and a non-first appearance just sold for more than any other non-first appearance in the history of comics.

    Sounds about right. More Fun 53 is about half of 52, right?
  11. 9.4 All-Star 8 up for auction

    So in summary, it's an OO collection that has surfaced after being stored away for 70+ years. if the family called Pristine, or a collector purchased them first and brought them to Pristine it's the same result - an OO collection with some high grade keys has come to market. (Though I would like to know the story on some of the rejected CGC submissions like; Superman #14, Whiz #25, Master #21, etc..)

    ok, so which part of this story is pristine lying about? He took the books straight to his home, where some were read, and others lay undisturbed for 70+ years. In all, the collection consists of approximately 400 books and focused on Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman, along with other Golden Age heroes. The books remained in the same home for the remainder of his life. 1941 – 1945 Magazine Distributor --- Store Owner --- Attic Same Location --- 70 plus years later

    Huh? Are you saying this (and the Sensation #1) aren't from an OO collection and that they have been on the market before? Who cares if a collector found them or pristine. The fact is that it is a new OO collection that has surfaced and contains some highest graded keys.
  14. 9.4 All-Star 8 up for auction

    Mitch didn't you tell us that no more OO collections of this quality would ever surface again?
  15. 9.4 All-Star 8 up for auction

    He's also what I call a "double-high bidder", meaning not only is his immediate bid ahead of i***s, but that he has placed an additional bid on top of it that exceeds the current bid.
