  1. I also have mine displayed with Superman #82...I'm still basking in the glow! I was 8 in 1993, and I still remember seeing Superman #82 CE on the comic rack of my local drug store (Osco) stopping me in my tracks and desperately explaining to my mom why I NEEDED to have it. LOL
  2. Well there's another one accounted for! It is pretty funny. We've all been waiting YEARS for a 9.8 of this book, and now they're falling from the sky. At least they're pricing them appropriately based on the scarcity. It would hurt to see this one priced around $100, similarly to Superman #82 CE.
  3. Haha, I was shocked too! It's a high print number book and a pivotal part of the "Return" storyline. Crazy that it's taken this long for that many to appear on the census, and I'm sure it wasn't for lack of submissions. Those other 3 must have just appeared recently. Based on the prices I've seen, people are well aware how rare a 9.8 is for this book.
  4. Amazing, only a few months ago there was only 1 solitary 9.8 on the census for AOS 505...Now there's 7!
  5. I almost didn't...but as soon as "10 years..." rang through my head I was already in checkout.
  6. Yeah, I paid waaayyy more than I probably should have for AOS 505 CE 9.8. Whoever consigned it with MyComicShop knew exactly how rare a 9.8 grade was for that one. I couldn't pass it up though. Again, 10 years and the posts above are the first time I've seen 9.8 grades "in the wild" for this one.
  7. Thanks, I’m legitimately thrilled! Also noticed this is a different number than the two above from July. In over a decade I’ve literally NEVER seen a 9.8 for AOS 505 CE. When it rains it pours, I guess!! 🤷🏻‍♂️
  8. I predicted a long time ago that eventually the direct and newstand editions of Superman #75 CGC 9.8 would surpass the value the black bagged edition (not to be confused with the rarer Platinum Edition pictured above). It seems that I was correct based on the trends I've seen on eBay over the past 6 or so months. I've always vastly preferred the Jurgens/Breeding cover over the super-generic (and on the nose) tombstone cover, so this makes me happy to see... https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2334524.m570.l1312.R2.TR0.TRC1.A0.H0.TRS2&_nkw=superman+75+cgc+9.8&_sacat=17084&LH_TitleDesc=0&_osacat=0&_odkw=superman+75+cgc
  9. Just got my first sealed Platinum Edition of Superman 75. Someone loved this thing for 27 years as it looks pretty damn terrific.
  10. Anyone have an Adventures of Superman #498 (1st print) CGC 9.8 they wouldn't mind parting with?
  11. If you get a 9.8 grade, your book is worth between $100-$120, while the bagged edition in it's raw/sealed form fetches $15-$20 on ebay. So if you feel like your book may be in NM shape, it's definitely worth sending it in for grading. Even if you get a 9.6 or 9.4 grade, it's still worth more than it is in the bag.
  12. Yeah, it's definitely once of the scarcer 9.8's to track down. I'm also looking for Action Comics #692 CGC 9.8 from this run.
