    THE AMAZING FANTASY #15 CLUB

    I wasn't after that book. Andy / October was. He saw the book raw and offered over market for it.

    That's the 5.0 that went for $57K in the spring of 2017.

    Having a hard time believing this is a 9.8

    Last I heard CGC does examine each reholder to make sure the book is the correct grade. CGC 9.8 books have defects and many of the defects you have pictured (like the color loss on the black areas of the back cover) are generally common on that book.

    Your comparison is ridiculous. You're not grading baseball cards. You could have a 9.8 looking copy and if the water stain is large enough it could grade below VG Whatever keeps the grade down on the 2nd 5.0, it isn't the front cover.

    HULK # 1 CLUB

    Interesting results because there was a small house auction in Maryland the other day and the Hulk #1 8.5 went for north of $160K (w/ BP)

    The new CGC cases are thicker, causing books to sit higher from the glass than the old cases. In the case of my scanner, it causes the book to look washed out. Not sure if this is the case or not for the Clink copy, but just compare the same book scanned with two different scanners below (the new holder being the duller looking one - same book in both holders)

    Flawless transaction. Thank you for your purchase!

    GPA is mostly good but can be misleading. For example, I've sold two CGC 5.0 copies at WAAAAY over GPA in the last 6 months because GPA has two sales at $33K and $35K but those copies were both badly chipped and so not entirely relevant to unchipped copies. So you do need to do more than just look at the raw numbers to have a real picture.

    What is there to analyze? They're right in the range of where they roughly have been ($95-125K for a 7.0 and $150ish for a 7.5), although these are exceptional looking copies so they are on the high side of the range (although I did get $175K for a 7.5 last fall ) Book seems to be holding it's own.

    James, it's an awesome copy and I'm so happy for you. Congrats! I'm going to close the thread gang. The dorks will have to move elsewhere to congregate now.

    FF#67 Record Sale?!

    That all depends on who the underbidder was.

    Megacon 2019 On-site grading?

    No. The books are driven back to Sarasota and graded and encapsulated there and then brought back to Orlando for delivery.

    Grader's notes are not exhaustive and they are not really meant for the general public.
