In!

Nice! I've got a slender few books on my hit-list for this year as I'm shooting for quality over quantity. One is a GSXM 1 with WP, sharp wrap and accurate centering in a 9.4. And there it is. Well-done! :golfclap:

I'm definitely a value collector too, but I set my sights even lower with my 8.5.  I do think it looks great now that I completed my trifecta, and I'm just not interested in spending enough money on a better looking X-Men #1.  I've got a pretty ragged raw 95, but I can't work up the excitement to spend a decent amount on #94 when Wolverine is the only one excluded from the cover (aside from his head in the corner.)  I'm sure I'll pick one up eventually for completion's sake.

Quoting myself from back in December because while I didn't spend too decent an amount, I did want to at least be able to say I have a 94, so consider my GSXM1/XM94 club dues paid.

I just started my X-men 94-143 registry set.

I bought this @Wondercon con a couple weeks ago.

This is the best and brightest CGC 9.6 I have ever seen!  The colors are off the charts!

Wow, what a sweet book! I dreamed about a 9.6 WP in this, but after looking at prices, had to "settle" for a 9.2 WP. Prices really start going exponential from 9.2 -> 9.4 -> 9.6 -> 9.8, but boy that's a keeper!

I feel like when we're just shooting covers in the 9.4-9.8 range, how great it looks really comes down to the camera/scanner being used.  Out of curiosity, do you all find when scanning CGC comics on a flatbed scanner that the distance between the glass and the actual comic degrades the image a bit?  I feel like raw comics scan a fair amount better than something in a case.

I think Most collector will collect giant size xmen first followed by xmen 94.

I see Giant Size X-Men #1 gaining new life and interest for two reasons.

1. Disney now owns these great characters.

2. Colossus for becoming a break out character in the two Deadpool movies.
