  1. Very nice #25 and still in the old label. Thanks Frank, for confirming the $21k figure over my $25k post. Either way, that was a lot of money in the 1980s.
  2. Not sure about the #2. We will all be left with reprints at some point
  3. yep.. Church copy that he paid $25k for in 1982...it's maybe a 9.2 or 9.4 if it were ever graded and slabbed....
  4. Agreed. If the BC looks like the FC and no major spine splits, it seems to look 6.0 - 7.0 range. But minus the piece out of the FC, and they dinged it down to a 3.5 which seems generous. I would think more like in the 2.5 - 3.0 range at best.
  5. There are plenty of great marketplace mail letters from Mr. Carey as I have re-read these past few months looking through my old ones. Great comic knowledge of historical worth that is often overlooked and unknown by new collectors. I just read an interview with Fred Guardineer and Bill Gaines which were both really good.
  6. I have always went for the double quotes first, then the blue under the table second. Getting both is really awesome. The quotes are often cut off and most folks are not aware of it or care. Very nice downgrade Brian.
  7. in the 3.0 - 7.0 range price points have appeared to soften a little. The 7.0 on HA just went for $228K, but the price point on entry level, complete Cap 1s are still relatively higher from what I have seen.
  8. Agreed. When entry level price points hit 5 figures, the lower grade entry level (.5 - 1.0) complete books sustain a healthy pp and base entry level cost as the pool of buyers that can afford a 10K copy is much bigger than the pool swimming in the 100K level. We have seen this with books at lower price points (Hulk 181) when the floor cost is still around $1k but because many copies are available the pp's are clouded together in the 4.0 - 6.0 range.
  9. the 37 was my first Pre Rob. I've always liked it even though Batman is drawn smaller. Any full moon and rolling fog Bat cover grabs me. Smiling Batman (#36) is where I lose a little interest.
  10. and it was only foggy on Batman's side of the pier
