Wonder how this next round of stimulus will affect our sales. I haven't seen a fall off yet in 6 weeks and counting.

Who knows, but sales are crazy everywhere. If anyone plays Topps Marvel Collect, a set of Retro X-Men went from selling for $150 to $450 in a month.

A Thanos Reserve went from selling for $75 to $265 during the same time span.

...Yes, these are digital cards.

It’s an app where you collect digital cards. Topps has a similar app for Star Wars, baseball (bunt), hockey (skate), Walking Dead, WWE and even Disney. You get free coins every day and you can purchase a secondary currency to chase new sets or cards that are dropped daily or weekly. The cards I linked to above are long sold out - Retro X-men were limited to 250cc minus the award and the Thanos Reserve was available for a month by purchasing a “box” for around $20. You’d have to buy them on the secondary market or trade for them in the app.

This article from five years ago when the Star Wars app dropped and a Vintage Han was selling for $200. It explains the concept pretty well. The only thing that has changed is the introduction of a secondary currency.

How the Hell Is This JPG of Han Solo Worth $225?

When you buy a card(s) you are essentially buying a trade agreement. The person sends you the cards you purchased via a trade for a common base card on your end.

Can’t take the time to look up 6 posts. It’s possible he doesn’t have the time to spell out the full title of the book.

I couldn’t find #10 anywhere but I did manage to get #9 (and it does have a last page splash cameo of yellow Hulk). Also found one of those Kill Lock #2s... still don’t know what the deal with that book is. Low print run I’m assuming?

Idw9 = Marvel Action Avengers 9

I saw he mentioned 10 kinda difficult to understand he was talking about the same book 

I thought he was talking about a title from the publisher Idw(shrug)

I think the ebay sales have more to do with A LOT less supply - no shops, cons, etc. than stimulus money.

Nice thing about it is I am getting new customers weekly.

Looks like some people might be speculating on the Star Trek: Starfleet Academy series (Marvel, 1996) written by Christian Cooper, the man that the woman in Central Park called 911 on.

I seem to of missed this development as well. It appears Marvel has licensed its characters out to IDW and Archie comics. Seems extremely odd and a telling sign for monthly printed comics.

Are you serious?  Speculating taking on a political twist!
