Well it does get interestinger and interestinger. The curious case of TMNT #1 9.8 with cert # 0950071001.  Now in preview mode on Heritage here:

https://comics.ha.com/itm/modern-age-1980-present-/teenage-mutant-ninja-turtles-1-mirage-studios-1984-cgc-nm-mt-98-white-pages/p/7187-14001.s?ic4=ListView-Thumbnail-071515#

So, the story goes that back on 4/1/2016 this beauty sold on Comic Connect for $27,222.00, and has been verified with CC. Then on 4/29/16, the ever-present nick_bridger apparently sold the same book on ebay for a final auction value of $24,100.00. To those unfamiliar he has had several 9.8's on ebay that either sell, or kinda-sorta sell or we're not really sure. It is a little odd how the book sells for 27K then he sells the same book for 3K cheaper a month later. Anyhow it's available again this time on HA, bidding starts on 4/20/18. No idea if he's the seller but HA is legit so this should be drama free for the winner.

This looks like it just opened bidding. Current bid at $11,000 w/ Buyer's Premium (BP) : $13,145.00

Now $20,000 w/ Buyer's Premium (BP) : $23,900.00

Now at $30,000 w/ Buyer's Premium (BP) : $35,850.00

 

Well that didn't take long. This is now at the exact sale price of the previous 9.8 that sold at HA in late February. Will it go higher? With 19 days left in the auction it sure seems so.

Need to update my entry... I resubmitted my 9.0 PLOD to see if the restoration could be removed.  Unfortunately it could not, but it went from a 9.0 Apparent SA to 9.2 C-1, which I guess is actually a bad thing... Oh well.  I tried!

It's not that hige of a jump considering the last sale for that grade was 2016 8.5 is at $5600 and 9.4 is at 10K both 2018 sales, so had to fall somewhere in there.

A 9.4 at $10k would strike me as being a relative bargain at this point after this 9.2 sale today.

Just sold for $38,240.00 (includes buyer's premium).  A new record.

The previous two 9.2 sales I have were $7900 on 3/23 and $9947 on 3/6. GPA seems to determine value by last sale which is not the best way. You really need a weighted average but with sparse sales like the Turtles #1 first print have, even an average works better. In the case of 9.2's that would be $8815.

That was so March 2018! :bigsmile: Now 9.4's are listing with asking prices of $13-13.5K.

GPA doesn’t determine value. (shrug) They simply record historical sales, provide annual averages, annual highs and lows, 90day average, and last sale. Where r u looking?

Book is smokin, no doubt...so much for my plans to upgrade!

I don't have GPA but the people who I've seen quote GPA have stated last sale, so those other numbers they may have sound great if they're ever used. I'd love to see them, why don't you post them for this book?

Too much data to post, but here’s an example of how you can drill down:

That was quick, now $8,500 w/ Buyer's Premium (BP) : $10,200.00.

For reference, the last two sales of 9.6's I have went for $14.3K on 2/23/18 and $26.3K on 11/17/17, both also Heritage auctions. My best guess is that this one sells for around $18K.

Paid for the image service on this, but I never got the scans... here's a crappy photo of the resub to go with the update

Hey, a first print is a first print! Only 3250 or fewer even exist.
