    Hot Wheels #5 in CGC 9.4 for $415??

    I don't have that book, but I did find it here: Great site to look at scans of Toth's work.
  4. FF1-100 (but broken up at the moment since I got rid of 2 and 3) this one is lower grade...took about 3-4 years or less. I probably will not complete it with 2 and 3 again...thinking of getting rid of FF5. Conan 1-200 and beyond...still intact X-Men1-400 (I don't have #1 any more 2-400) this one took about 15 years Almost have a complete JIM/Thor run from 83 to 200...but missing 83 and maybe 5 others. I think I was close to a complete Dr. Strange run from ST110 thru the Colan/Brunner series...but I got rid of no more. I can't hold on to books when they get too valuable...too many other cool things out there!
  5. CGC 9.6 copy has been sold. CGC 9.4 copy is still available.

    Incredible Hulk #181 - is it *that* red-hot?

    I actually picked this copy up in Mt View, California at Big Guys comics sometime around 2000. It was $300 pre CGC. I didn’t intend on selling, but once a book gets crazy I tend to move on. If only I knew!!

    Incredible Hulk #181 - is it *that* red-hot?

    Sold my CGC 9.6 copy for $2850 in the early 2000's. Doh!!
  9. Saw this on eBay today and made an offer at $415 against a $499 asking price. How crazy am I?? I love this book...and I know that Toth saw it as one of his masterpieces. Hot Wheels #5 CGC 9.4 Toth once said, "If I hated a -script, I couldn't send it back to the editor. I was capable of doing a "throwaway" job, to just "get it out," not see it anymore! But, if really interested in doing my very best, not repeating myself, not falling back on easy ways out, because this -script warranted better-than-average effort, I'd give 110%." Toth did this entire book...writing, penciling and inking. I'd say he gave 110%. There are 18 graded copies...4 in 9.4 none higher.
  10. Better scanner produces really crappy images, so I am relegated to my phone...which is, well, ok. Lighting is tough. Someone should start a thread on shooting graded comics. I think you probably need a light box and a polarizer...but I digress.

    Question is...when is the right time to sell this book? My copy is in ~6.0...maybe 7.0. I am not interested in holding forever.

    Those tears really hurt this book. I'd say 5ish. No more though.
