To be honest, I don't think you can tell from this list. I believe a lot of people followed my guesses and just changed them slightly. I think those folks would have done better without my help. lol Looking back, I was guessing too high on most books, with a couple selling abnormally low, and a couple selling abnormally high.

 

Congrats to seanfingh and Fazybones for nailing a book within $5 of it's achieved price! :applause: Tough to do with high ticket items. As the books become more common, we will start to see the points piling in. (thumbs u

 

For the folks that are at the bottom of the list with 0 points, please don't give up, this is just a fun game and your point scores will improve if you keep playing. :)

 

Again, I encourage more folks to join in!! Just post your predictions for Week 2 here in this thread or PM them to me. I need all guesses from all the participants by Saturday night at 11:00 PM.

I only have 7 entrants for Week 2 so far. :makepoint:

 

Thanks for playing guys, I'm quite enjoying this.

Wow. Maybe I should have used your guesses and just changed them a little. At least I might have got a point or two. lol

 

I clearly have no idea what I'm doing. :screwy:

 

 

Having fun with it though. Good luck with your books this week Andy!

To be honest, I haven't really followed this thread, Andy. I just came back in to see if you were discussing the results of the auctions to get your reaction.

 

I just checked the Sunday auction and see you have some nice books in there. I'll actually be bidding on more of those books than I did in the Signature auction, as they are more in line with the kind of stuff I tend to buy.

I was told to not try to focus on which books sold well and which books didn't, as long as the final tally is close, then that's all that really matters. I agree but it's so hard for me not to dissect these auctions as that, to me, is the most interesting part. Overall, I'd say the books did roughly a thousand less than my expectations. With the buyer's premium, my expectations were exceeded.

 

Best of luck for deals moving forward. (thumbs u

I'd say "better luck next time", but with this book, there's unlikely a "next time" any time soon. :sorry:

You did amazing on the Sgt. Fury #1 CGC 8.5 at $6871.

 

The last copy in similar grade that I know was at auction I picked up myself a few months ago in 8.0 White pages for $2,600. I could not believe it when I say how much you got for yours.

 

I guess we are both happy. You got a good price for yours and it looks like I got a good deal on my 8.0. Now if only I could find a SGT Fury 3 and 4 at 8.0 or better with Off-white or better pages.

Thanks for the congrats! I was quite astonished really. I guess it helps out with the books that didn't do so well. (thumbs u

 

Wish I had a 3 or 4 for you. My #2 is a 9.0 and will be in the September Signature Auction.

Congrats again, Sanj! Props for having the cajones to post your picks in the thread. Nothing to fear now. :fear:

 

Seriously though, the most difficult books to predict have already come to auction. These ones from now on will be easier and the points should start to come fairly regularly. Hit a bullseye and you're back in the running.

 

I will be awarding a DC war t-shirt to every weekly winner.

 

Keep playing, my friends! :foryou:
