    Pictures of Highest Graded Comics?

    I acknowledge your reference. It's like Heritage has added one SS 9.8 to both books. I can't imagine someone would actually get an FF1 or ASM1 in 9.8 signed, that's crazy. BTW, my reference is the CGC website census. Heritage must be wrong or perhaps outdated. I just looked up the HA CGC census vs actual CGC census as of right now for ASM 1, and it looks like they match exactly except for 1 SS 9.8 on HA that isn't in the actual census. I suspect it may have been on the actual CGC census not too long ago when HA captured the info for that listing, but CGC recognized that it was an ASM #1 from a later ASM series (when they started the number over back at #1), and that they corrected the census accordingly. Likely the same explanation for FF #1... just my 2 cents...

    I thought CGC, for insurance reasons, takes a picture of all Walkthrough Tier books, something these must have been submitted under. I would hope CGC does not make these pics public domain. Maybe nobody ever asked for the pics? HA may be the only auction house to warehouse pics of past sales and probably do so only to promote their make an offer program. I believe Heritage included scans of sold books many years before they started their make an offer program... Although probably not as well known, ComicConnect actually has historical sale info including pics / scans as well; hit the sold items link on the left hand side mid way down on their home page...

    Ask Gator

    None of the above... I hate snow and frost, and I'm afraid of frightful weather... I remember some years ago getting caught in a sudden ice storm (it had not been in the forecast). I realized I would have to creep home for several miles along the (untreated) highway. Had a couple of my then very young kids in the car. Of course, the first thing one of them said was, "Daddy, I have to go the bathroom." If you have boys, an empty Gatorade bottle, and an extra set of parental hands, it's pretty easy to MacGyver a solution to that problem. If you don't have a bottle, or just boys, then it might get a bit tougher to MacGyver a solution to that problem.

    +1 Sorry to hear that you're going through this, but I'm happy to hear you and your family are okay.

    CGC label changes through the years - a visual guide

    I think the OP was just showing the different labels, and the creep-engine slabs have the same label as the post-creep engine slabs.

    Detective Comics #33...shift in value focus...?

    Tec 168 is one book that pops to mind...

  9. Up for grabs: G.I. Combat #68 CGC 7.0 with Off-White Pages I have had this baby for many years; it would be tough to find a nicer looking 7.0 IMO. Rules: 1. First I'll take it in thread or via PM wins the book (based on time stamp, and subject to rule #2 below). 2. Not available for HoS or Probation list folks, or anyone else I opt not to sell to (e.g. if new to the boards, I may ask for some references) 3.

I prefer to sell / ship within the U.S. only (to U.S. confirmed PayPal address if paid via PayPal), but I will consider sales / shipments to Canada if we can agree to shipping terms via PM (okay for Canadians to post a conditional I'll take it, pending agreement on shipping terms) --> Reduced Asking Price: $950 $850 $799 + $20 for USPS Priority Boxed / Insured Shipping
  10. Question for Mitch, in case he's reading this; How did you and Theo arrive at the price of $1,801.26 for the Action #1, as opposed to a rounder figure like $1,800. Did that just happen to be how much cash you had on hand, or is there some other explanation? Thanks, -Supes

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

    What do you think the cover would sell for at auction, or do you prefer not to speculate since you don't want to tip your hand? That's a whole ton of moolah for a recent cover. The only cover that I would ever consider paying a whole $mill for would be the OA cover to Action Comics 1. Now, that's a classic and iconic cover that most people in the world would remember. What's that you would take more than $10mill for the OA to that all-time iconic cover. Edited 1 hour ago by lou_fine Yeah, if the original art to Action #1 had survived, it would sell for a monumental amount of cash. That said, Wolverine is one of the most popular characters out there, and while hulk 181's are way more common than Action 1's (or even any of the silver age mega keys), original art is 1 of 1, and I don't think there is any other Wolverine themed original art that could rival the hulk 181 cover. Personally, I'd probably put the Hulk 180 page at a solid #2 spot. While you or I might not pay (or in my case be able to pay) a cool mill plus for the Hulk 181 cover original art, it put up to auction I bet it wouldn't have any problem hitting that mark. Caveats: I don't own any original art, and from what little I've followed there may not have been any other original art that has cracked a million, or if there were, I'm guessing there weren't a lot of such items, but I give that it is the Wolverine piece to own, and it is 1 of 1, I would think that the Hulk 181 cover would hit that mark...

    Any interior page of 181 might not match that, but I bet the cover would crack a million IMHO (of course I don't have any original art, so my opinion might not count for much).
