Albedo #1 & #2 Club

Technically, not a member of the club.  But found this in a box looking for something else today, and thought it was worth showing.  Pity about the foxing, but this was a dollar bin or less pick up several years ago.  Stated 2nd printing on last page, appears to be signed on the IFC by Gallacci, signature dated '85.  I figured people here might find it interesting anyway:

Now that I think about it, if there was ever a book where foxing would be appropriate Albedo would be the one...

New sale, CGC 9.2 which I believe sold for somewhere from $7500-$8K. Not sure what the agreed price was, but was somewhere in that range. Considering before the craze happened a 9.4 sold for $6100, this is pretty damn solid!

Your right 7500. With taxes and insurance 8400!

Turns out my expectations were correct and this copy sold for a bit less than the last. Three of the 10 CGC 9.8 copies trading hands in less than 14 months is a lot of the market to absorb. Also I do not think this is the type of book you sell at Heritage. It is a ComicLink type of book. I think Heritage is better for golden age while ComicLink has the customer base that follow silver age to copper age.

In any event $31,000 (May 28, 2020) to $22,750 (May 27, 2020) to $19,800 (July 9, 2020).

Hopefully the next 9.8 will not come up for sale for another year or two so things can start trending upwards again.

And the 9.8 Signature series sold for $28,800 (Sept 10, 2020)

I’m too embarrassed to say

No need at all to be embarrassed as I am quite sure that Rob Liefeld and his anatomically well drawn books will become popular and hot again one of these decades.  :baiting:

Or probably not.  :cry:

It was a silver age DC that was worth about $150.

Any chance you could plead temporary insanity (which should be pretty easy to prove :insane:) and ask to nullify the trade in order get your copy of Albedo 2 back?  lol

That's about a $1000 decrease from the last 9.2, but still decent for the seller. It's a lowly looking 9.2 as well. I could easily see this book in a 9.0 holder. CGC sometimes grades this book, along with turtles one lighlty. I suppose it's due to the black cover and type of paper used. You never quite know what you're going to get.  

I was just looking at my copy yesterday. I love this book. The cover is so subtle, yet so demonstrative! Usagi can give you so much with just one look.

I saw that.  It was a very weak 9.2, at least from a presentation perspective.  There are 8.0s that present better than that book.  I was trying to figure out how it was in a 9.2 case.  I would not have touched it.
