What does a counterfeit set go for?

From what I've seen, $800-$1,200 in today's market.  They come up so infrequently that it's hard to get a real sense for their value.

CGC 9.8 bids w/ Buyer's Premium (BP) : $31,070.00.

 

That's just over the recent record ebay sale of $30,100, and this auction has 15 days to go.

Now the 9.8 is at $35,850 with BP and 14+ days to go.

I don't think any experienced collector willing to drop Gobbledygook $ would be fooled by those. I'm glad the counterfeits are so easy to spot, having the yellow covers. And the signatures are incredibly obvious forgeries. The counterfeiters weren't trying very hard.

Back when these were made, they didn't have to.  Without the internet as we know it today, details about Gobbledygook were scarce as the book itself was so rare.  Fans in the 80's looking for the fabled Gobbledygook books were often basing their searches on rumors and hearsay.  I'm sure many had no idea what it looked like.

Including people who happily paid $20+ for Gobbledygook #1 (1986)

They were advertising a TMNT signing on their site but now I can't find it on their event calendar. Curious. hm

What is the deal with Fugitoid 1? Was it just printed in insane numbers? I know it is just a cameo, but you'd think an early TNMT app would be of more interest.

Wow. 279 pages since I first started this thread. I'm curious if that's a personal best?-)  :hi:
