Light / dark green variations... You get to learn something new each and every day in these boards hm

 

Yes, and it gives us something else to obsess about. It seems like the majority of copies have the lighter green, as does my personal copy. Last year I held dark green 'variant' in hand and it was very impressive. If the cover colors are vibrant, the dark green combined with bright red against a glossy white background can be breathtaking.

There's dark green, light green, and shades in between.  My old copy is a 'tweener'.

Mine is a darker green.  I wonder if people prefer one "green" over the other?

Same as it was last week and the week before.

I meant over the last year has demand been the same or is it slower or are more people buying? What grades are moving the best?

Slowly rising in most grades.  It is not burning up the charts, but if you buy a copy at or near GPA you are unlikely to lose money, and if you plan on holding for at least 2 or 3 years you should be up.

Did the X-Men # 1 CGC 9.4 over at ComicLink sell? I know the highest offer for a while was 100 000$ and the BIN was 150 000$. I saw it was gone today.

Bought this off the boards in 2015 so some of the old timers have probably seen it before. The Kirby signature is what got me excited & looks legit to me!
