Cool piece, MC.  The finished Kane cover is awesome.

Sharp copy, James, with beautiful white cover paper.  For all his cover art, Gil Kane had a seemingly endless array of monsters and dragons up his sleeve.

With just one more day to go selling 71 high grade books at auction, I aim to pull together statistics on how the sale prices relate to prior figures recorded in GPAnalysis and Registry points established by CGC, highlighting surprises on both the high and low sides.  The market report for picture frame Marvels will be called:

Sales to Astonish

It should be pulled together and posted this weekend.  I hope my fellow collectors of this cool Bronze Age niche will find it useful as a gauge of the current high grade slabbed market.

Great title!

Looking forward to your statistical sales compilation. :applause:

There's a large effect on comic prices at the moment.  Back in January, I agreed to consign 79 comics to Comiclink for auction.  Of the 71 currently in the March auction, prices are running right now at 50% of GPA with 1-3 days to go.  Yes, a handful of the books will skyrocket on the final day, but compared to prices of picture frame comics 1-3 days before prior auctions closed there are a bunch of books destined to markedly underperform.  Who knew back in January?  At least I had the sense to offer only about a quarter of my collection in a single auction, wanting to see how the books fared.

It's far too early to tell how far the market will fall and how long it will be before prices are on an uptick again, but current world events and investment conditions are most definitely having a big impact now.

 

I picked up 2 of your Iron Man's. One ended where I thought it would and the other a little less. I noticed a couple other of yours going for more than what I expected.

Fantastic copy, Thomas!  A true high-grade specimen from a great collection that survived the ravages of time unabated. (worship)

Picked up a few books from the Namisgr PF Collection, too!

Targeted the Suscha's specifically as I have been tracking these particular PF copies since 2012. Shortly, they will be repatriated with 50 other PF copies in the ole MC footlocker.

(Hope you did a-okay with these, Bob. :wishluck:)

:acclaim:Congrats on the wins.  That MOTP wasn't from me but the others were.  Your bids are greatly appreciated, and it's nice to know that books from my former collection are being distributed to great collections and collectors of the genre.  

The Suscha News pedigree Bronze Age Marvels are terrific, as a group overall the nicest PF original collection that I know of.  Nearly every one comes with snow white pages and untoned cover stock that makes the cover colors practically jump off the page.  Not only that, but it appears the original owner sought out whenever available copies with well registered covers running square top to bottom and wrapped true front to back.  It's hard to believe when looking at many of them that they were published 48 years ago now.
