  1. My point was that even before this crisis there just seemed to be a lot of gloom around AF15 for SOME PEOPLE here on the boards. Yes CMV will always be a factor at this point in the hobby & it's a fun part of the ride no doubt. Your 100% right enjoying the comic for what it is, and being interested in its market, are not mutually exclusive. However, during these dark days I was just trying to remind us all about how significant the book is to our hobby, I mean it's arguably the 3rd most important comic character.... ever imho & how cool it is to own any AF 15.
  2. I don't get it? Who cares what it's worth? I mean I have 2 AF15 3.0 ( I have about 30k in trade/cash into both of them, both good deals at the time ) & one 7.5 that I bought in 1988 for $1500 by picking blueberries all summer. I cherish all 3 of them, they are the first appearance of my favorite SA hero, the cover is arguably the most iconic cover of any era drawn by a king, the interior art features my favorite artist at the height of his artistic peak imho. Oh yea it was written by a legend. All these year later I still get chills looking at any copy of this book. So if you own a copy stop stressing what it's worth today, yesterday or next week just say I am in the club" I own an AF 15" f#ck life is good, be safe fellow club members
  3. Truth is.................... nobody here has a clue as to what is going to happen in terms of the hobby. However, I think most of us would agree it's rational to think that until we have a better idea of how long this crisis lasts on a global level will really dictate what the impact is on this and most hobbies for the next few cycles. Most people in my neck of the woods ( southern NJ) seem to still feel like this is just a few week pause and they will all be on the Jersey shore by June 15th with a Corona in hand I personally suspect that this is not the case ( I hope I am wrong). IMHO thus far we have seen really great leadership from some state governors while some still seem to be acting very slow to acknowledge this threat is very real & until we all get on the same page this is not going away anytime soon. Just looking at the situation world wide I can not see some of the very poor nation in South American & Mexico etc being able to contain this virus for quite some time ( do we even have any solid data on what's happening in our back yard yet?) Regardless, does anyone here really think we will ever be able to keep everyone out ? So really until we have a vaccine ( best case 6-12 months) but more likely 14-16 months based on what I have read it's going to be a long haul for our hobby getting back to where it was just a few weeks/months ago. For example my neighbor lost 208k in 12 days in the market & is putting off his planned retirement ( he is currently selling his coin collection on evilbay) So for the near future ( cash will be king ). Really right now we are all flying/buying in the dark as past data is not worth the site it's posted on. A great deal today may be a bad deal in 30 days or a super short term score! I would suggest keeping anything you love or that can not be easily replaced & then hold on because we are all going on a crazy ride in 2020/2021. PS remember they are just funny books on cheap paper, be safe, be smart. LIVE LONG AND PROSPER.
  4. Both GS X-MEN sold via PM or I will take them

  6. If you use these sales as a guide, then imho the Bound TEC 27 run volume on Ebay is a STEAL!
  7. Tec 27 pages # 1 2 & 3 did 38k with BP those ar pretty solid numbers imho
  8. On the Bodnar's volumes which one would have brought the most $$$$$$ had they been sold?
  9. The Great KARNAK predicts that many people on these boards will have wished they could have pull the trigger on that volume in a few years.
  10. IMHO I don't think the DC connection adds more than 10/20% But really I have no idea It could have a HUGE impact depending on the volume and the buyer reason for wanting to own them as they are so rare, historic and unique I am no expert on these ( who is?). I have a funny feeling these are going back to DC unless the old lady can provide some proof they were purchased and not stolen? On a side note over the past decade I have seen Volume primarily that included covers start to get a lot more respect in the hobby as the cost to try and complete runs on early GA have gone ballistic. I am actually surprised the TEC 27 volume is still not sold on Ebay. I passed on similar Tec volume for 10k early 2000s ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
  11. Funny thing is had one of the members on the board had bought this collection odds are nothing would have come of it and the volumes would have been sold with very little national fanfare ( no harm no foul) It seems like the media attention tipped off DC and I would think they got there lawyers on it asap.
  12. Bodnar’s Auction House Pulls DC Comics Bound Volumes From Sale Posted on February 6, 2020 | by Rich Johnston Yesterday, we reported that Bodnar’s Auction House of New Jersey would be auctioning off a major part of DC Comics history on February 8th.97 catalogue bound colume collections of comics spanning the history of DC Comicd, that was originally part of the National Publications/DC Comics archive. But we also raised concern about their provenance, as there were no records of any of the volumes having been sold – but that some had been stolen over the years. Even so, 97 of the volumes was still a massive hoard. Well, after we ran the article, DC Comics got in touch and now Bodnar’s has pulled the items for sale – though they are still proceeding with the large Massachusetts comics collection sale on Saturday in New Jersey, which was separate to this. The owner told Bleeding Cool The books were found in an attic in Staten Island, NY. The owner passed in 2007 and the 67 year old widow found them this past year cleaning out her late husband’s hoards. It is not clear how he obtain them and would be hesitant to say they were stolen. Once I have more information I would give an interview. The online portion of the sale will be taken down later today. Our February 8, 2020 auction Catalog portion of the sale is being canceled until further notice. It has been brought to our attention that there could be question to who has proper ownership of the collection of 97 volumes of bounded comics marked Library National Periodical Publications, Inc in the sale. We are working with DC to investigate who has proper ownership and authority to sell this collection. Once we have clarification, we will release our findings. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause to buyers who planned on attending the auction however we take great pride to be a leader in the auction industry and we at Bodnar’s want to do the right thing for all parties involved. ONLY THE 97 CATALOG LOTS HAVE BEEN CANCELED! The rest of our Comic Book Sale is on as planned. This sale will now begin at 12 noon.
  13. I live in South Jersey so I go to as many of these auctions as I can from time to time you can get a solid score ( it's a lonnnnng day) BUT there are a few regulars who really have no clue to FMV and can make the hours upon hours you spend there a day of pure hell, funny thing about these bound volumes is not too long ago they would have been seen as a neat curiosity sold relatively cheap & really only to a very small group of collectors.
