  1. Wanted to try uploading a photo from my facebook page of my copy of Miss Fury 2 - I had it graded in November of 2003. https://www.facebook.com/excitingcomics1 It was the highest graded copy for many years - . My book has some issues like spine wear and soiling, but the Promise Copy has issues too with lower spine abrasion/split, staple pull/tear, and tiny tear in the window on the front cover edge. Miss Fury 2 is one of my favorite books of the Golden Age and I feel it is a tiny bit under appreciated in the hobby. The cover is similar in mood, co
  2. https://www.facebook.com/excitingcomics1 Here is a link to my 8.0 copy of Miss Fury 2 - I had it graded in November of 2003. It was the sole highest graded copy for many years - and it still is one of the highest graded copies. My book has some issues like spine wear and soiling, but the Promise Copy has issues too - lower spine abrasion/split, staple pull/tear, and tiny tear in the window on the front cover edge. Miss Fury 2 is one of my favorite books of the Golden Age and I feel it is a tiny bit under appreciated in the hobby. The cover is similar in m
  3. Hey Peter - I appreciate your thoughts. Let me clarify - I wasn't implying FF4 is unknown or a sleeper in the sense that nobody knew about it. Our topic here isn't "Books that are unknown or Diamonds in the rough" - it is "SA Comics That Are Heating Up" - and FF4 just heated up more than it has in the last two years and for that matter maybe ever. In the past 7 days it doubled in price .... the book that sold on ebay doubled the previous record high ... it didn't go up 10 or 20 percent - it didn't go up 50 percent. It went up 100% And I don't think that price is an aberration - but q
  4. Pardon me if someone has already mentioned Fantastic Four #4, but the ebay sale this week was eye popping. A CGC 6.5 copy of FF4 just sold on ebay for $12,000 - about double the previous high in that grade. This particular copy presents nicely for the grade, but it is not remarkable in appearance nor does it have white pages. This is again a very strong price for this book and this copy ... Here's a link - https://www.ebay.com/itm/265087297272?hash=item3db86f26f8:g:nZkAAOSwmN5gTSLt In case you don't know ... it features the first silver age appearane of Namor the Sub-Mariner
  5. kmik - FF4 is starting to move now ... The 5.5 copy sold tonight for $5403 on comiclink which is a new record high and the 9.0 sold for it's second highest ever at $15,178. The X books are hot and FF4 is in addition to everything else a hidden X book that is starting to move. The Sub-Mariner is Marvels' FIRST MUTANT. Namor possesses among other abilities the mutant ability of flight. Subby's golden age appearances are well ... golden, but his appearance in FF4 is ever so sweet. I could smell the smoke coming off it in tonight's auction. There are so many things to drive the FF4 p
  6. Hey KCO - that $5200 a point value is based on just one sale - the 1.5 copy on the previous page. To be fair the page before in this thread referenced a 3.0 copy that sold for $9550 - which would be $3200 a point ... that's quite a difference. As I said in my initial comment, "Pricing seems to be all over the place at the moment - from a little less than $4,000 a point to around $6 thousand a point." Personally, If I had a 2.0 copy myself, I wouldn't want to sell it for less than the 1.5 which sold for $7800. I also tend to be conservative in my thinking - so just for the sake of s
  7. Darthbryan as you noted - Giant Size X1 - is also on the move - along with X94 I might add. These books also indicate the revaluation of the X books is underway and now the question is where if anywhere is there an X book that still has crazy upside? It's FF4 - and the first silver age appearance of Namor. The Sub-mariner is Marvels' FIRST MUTANT. Namor possesses among other abilities the mutant ability of flight. His golden age appearances are well ... golden, but his appearance in FF4 is like a race car with the wheels spinning - I am watching the two copies in tonight's auction as
  8. StarkEnterprises - You asked what your book is worth - I'm not sure - the market is transitioning even as I type, but you can certainly get an idea from the two sales listed on the previous page. The 1.5 went for $7800 - which translates to about $5,200 per grade point (1.5 x $5200 = $7800). The price transition is real since gocollect estimates the value of a 1.5 at $4900. Clearly the market is changing right now - creating some relative bargains as some weak hands - eager hands - flipper hands - old timers cashing out will jump to soon or fail to respond ot the changing market - perhaps

  10. Thanks for your thoughts AoD - I've never sold a comic book for $40,000 - so I I didn't think of what you suggested. But now that you mention it - I guess I wouldn't deposit it in one transaction ... BUT .... upon further thought it's actually quite possibel that Rick doesn't give her cash, but gives her a cashiers check. Then what? And is that the way to sell big books for cash only and make multilple bank deposits?
  11. When she sold that book - Rick acts like it's $40,000 cash ... but is it? Is there any kind of withholding tax on that? Does she just walk out with $40k? And if she does walk out with 40k - does she then have some kind of tax liability? What does she really get on that sale? And how does she put that much money in CASH according to Rick into her bank without raising all sorts of red flags - because I thought banks flagged any amount above 10K? I'm really asking by the way -- can you just walk in and sell a book for that kind of money and that be the end of it? And if not - what can she
  12. Oh heavens no Gotham Kid ... for me, Sensation Comics is the Detective Comics of Wonder Woman. Sensation 1 with bullets flying off her bracelets on a gorgeous white cover accented with a big yellow moon in the background with the American Flag flying is just beautiful and the gorgeous title masthead in red and blue screams golden age! Lt. Pink saying "Sensation 1 lies in a strange netherworld between first appearance and the first issue of WW 1" is way off target for me. I feel like Sensation Comics is to WW what Detective Comics is to Batman. WW's Magic Lasso that is featured so promi
  13. Could someone please tell me if Phantom Lady 17 is in the Overstreet Top 100 Golden Age Books this year? If so ... what is her rank?
  14. Beautiful book ... Now what else ya got Maybe a Nedor or two that you held back from long ago -
