Well I am officially out of this club (for now). Sold, got paid, and shipped out my membership yesterday. I thought I would feel real bad, but not too bad I guess. I did purchase the book in March this year for a 1/3 less than what I got for it last week, add in the fact that there was some smokin' deals passing by the auction blocks and the timing seemed just ripe. I guess I will hope for this dip that some of you speak of, to get back into this wondeful club. See ya.

 

Congrats!

 

Sometimes you have to get in and sometimes you have to get out... (thumbs u

 

+1 That was a nice 5.0.

Wow, that is a beautiful 3.5!!!! Unusual to find one in that grade without chipping. Also a lot of the copies I see seem to have writing on the cover.

 

That is a very intelligent buy, at that grade, with that eye appeal. Nice :applause:

The AF #15 9.0 oww ending tonight on ComicConnect is already up to $140k with 2 hours to go. I'm curious if it'll go much higher. I know some 8.5s have sold in the $110k range. So any chance this approaches $200k? Or any guesstimates on a final price?

I never would have guessed that 8.5s would be selling for as much as they have. (I think there have 6 or 7 sales of 8.5s over $100k.) And to me, there's something far more attractive about books with grades that start with the number 9. Call me shallow, I know.

 

$160-175k seems like a good guess to me. But this book has surprised me many times over the years.

This former 8.5 has been trying to get sold many times...and did not sell for it did not meet reserve. I was an under bidder once. :cry: Going to be interesting to watch. :popcorn:

Hmm. That is interesting. I didn't know that until I received a PM a few minutes ago.

 

It is a sharp, fresh looking book. Nice colors and no egregious flaws.

As an 8.5 it was a pretty sharp looking book. I thought about buying it to see if it would upgrade. Apparently someone else had the same thought.

It's a nice book, just didn't like the centering...but can still live with it. Should have went in with you. :grin:
