What does a counterfeit set go for?

I sure would like to find a counterfeit TMNT1. To add to my set of #1's

Hello Fellow Turtle fans!

It's been a while since I posted and even longer since I posted anything meaningful (if that ever even happened) so I thought it might be fun to throw these ones back out on the 'internets'. I had originally posted them back in 2014 but since then photophucket went all fubar and so did all my linked photos (as you all have likely experienced).

Not as pretty as looking at them from the front but how I see them in their storage boxes:

1st, 2nd, and 3rd prints of #1:

I hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I do...

 

 

I was thinking about that post you made long ago just the other day.  Feel free to post this as many times as you want,  lol.  I have em all CGCed also but not all are 9.8’s.  To be honest your post inspired me.

TMNT 1 first print 9.0 SS WP

TMNT 1 first print 7.5 WP

TMNT 1 second print 9.2 WP

TMNT 1 second print 9.6 SS WP

TMNT 1 third print 9.8 SS WP

TMNT 2 first print 9.8 SS WP

TMNT 2 second print 9.8 WP

TMNT 3 NYCC Variant 9.2 WP

TMNT 3 9.8 SS WP

TMNT 4 9.8 WP

Raphael 9.8 WP

Fugitoid 9.8 SS WP

I will post a group pic at some point.

Soooooo...anything new with anyone?

Seems like this latest "Turtlemania" bubble has really burst! I sold most of the stuff I wanted to downsize, but it was a rough go and probably lost some $$ overall in the long run. 

I will give the new cartoon a chance, but the art looks terrible, and I stopped reading the IDW comic a while ago as it feels like they are just stretching it out to hit #100.

I bailed on the IDW series as well. I found my mind wandering while slogging through each new issue so I realized it was probably time to give up. 

There definitely seems to be a suppression in TMNT values right now, other than issue 1. Interestingly, Usagi Yojimbo seems to be moving upwards in popularity.

I recently acquired some of the last few books I needed to complete some major sets I was collecting. So until I'm ready to shell out for a first or second print #1, my TMNT comicbook hunting days are almost over. Really just hunting for a #3 NYCC variant now.

As I'm trying to round out the vol 1 set i have, I'm ok with this, cause prices were getting a bit rough. That said , supply is drying up as well ... WHERE IS FUGITOID or Leonardo universal 9.8s :(

I had such a hard time finding a 9.8 Leonardo.  I was looking for years when I was putting a run together.  No exaggeration, I have probably submitted and subsequently sold 10 different copies of Leonardo that came back 9.6.  In fact, the copy I have was a wedding present from a friend...so I STILL haven't found a 9.8 copy in the wild.

I’m a bit confused by this slab:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/TEENAGE-MUTANT-NINJA-TURTLES-1-CGC-9-2-WHITE-PAGES-1988-STREET-COLLECTORS-EDIT/382412562891?hash=item590990a1cb:g:6poAAOSw2cVarCa-

is this an error? I thought the street collectors edition was a mini comic included in the fan club kit from 1988... 

looks like an error, you are right.

Wow. That is interesting as the seller is not the person I sold it to. Good luck to the seller and any buyers from here on the boards.

Auction was ended early. I asked the seller why but no response yet.

I got a response. Looks like it is staying off the market for now. The seller did buy it from the guy I had sold my copy to a while back.

He delisted it. Literally just toying with folks...no intention of selling.

So, apparently IDW is re-releasing volume 3.  They’re going to reprint the original 23 issues and finish off the series with an extra three issues.  It will be available 16 May.  I’m in....

Yeah, but I was hoping the ended listing would still be visible.

I read volume 3 about a decade ago and it really wasn't my thing.  It seemed too caught up in trying to be edgy and extreme...full of robots, lasers, and radical character redesigns.  A real product of it's time (the 90's).

Some people really dig it though.  I'll have to give it another chance.  Maybe this IDW release will be my opportunity.
