so, lower than expected, higher than expected or right in line with current market value? (shrug)

I have my eye on this 6.0 EP in the upcoming ComicConnect auction.

 

http://www.comicconnect.com/bookDetail.php?id=642550

 

Any guesses on how much it will go for?

 

This is a tough one to judge. An EP 6.0 sold at HA in August 2015 for a little more than 21k; however, that copy didn't have any trimming. So taking everything into consideration maybe somewhere around 20k. (shrug)

I was actually just looking at the HA one and the label says Extensive (B-5). Is that a lower quality than EP? It also had white pages while this one is OW/CR.

Not lower quality. Here is a breakdown of the current CGC restoration label.

Ah I see. So if this book were graded today it would have an A, B, or C rating, or am I misunderstanding?

Not sure if it's legit but there's a back cover on ebay right now: http://www.ebay.com/itm/222102214108

 

That price just boggles my mind. It isn't even a complete back cover. (shrug)

 

When I first posted the link here the bid was $122. When you posted it was around $2500. As of now it is back at $122 lol. One guy must've cancelled his bids and brought it back down or something.

But doesn't that mean the first guys bid is a little shy of $2500?

Yeah, someone must have wanted to find out how high the top bid was.

The trimmed out back cover that sold Feb 2015 for $3703 was just like this but was CGC graded to ensure it was legit back cover.

 

This looks and seems real. Curious to see what it will end at myself. I was able to find matching front and back covers on eBay 4 years ago. Sold off the front and kept the back.

You'd be surprised. I bet there are dozens of boardies that own a bat 1 (or more than one)

 

 

With blue 3.0ish copies currently sniffing 50K a pop. I would not hesitate to call it offending to own MORE than one copy of Bat1. This book is not for hoarding.

 

only pic I could quickly find....most Ive owned at one time recently was 5...here are 3...

Is this a Jerry Robinson SS?
