CL can rarely bother with back cover scans. astonishing really when you think about it. though when i email them to request images of back cover scans, they usually come through.

That’s nicer than other company 8.5 that ended a few months ago on cl.  Probably a $150k book

It's like watching some completely ripped dude's workout video.  Should I be inspired or hopelessly demotivated?

Also, if I take steroids how much sooner can I get to the point where I own a book like that?

The FF 1 cgc 9.0 and 6.5 that’s ending in cl should give a good idea where the full spectrum of prices fall.  Specifically the 6.0 and above market.  There’s a FF1 pgx signature on 9.2 on CC but that doesn’t really count

The 9.4 Voldy on Clink with the Jack Kirby verified signature on the first page is amazing book. Kudos to CLink for scoring the auction in that one. Hammer thoughts ?

listed on the exchange with a BIN of 675K. The consignor should stop smoking the cr@p he's currently on.

I took up a more challenging aspect of the hobby.  I am slowly working on putting together the run of Fantastic  Four from Mexico.  This is  Los 4 Fantasticos 1  from 9/62.  This is less than a year after the U.S. version.  This is the first foreign Marvel Superhero book printed outside the U.S.  Interesting Item is that the cover art is Kirby's original  unedited work and the inking is finer and shows more detail.   If you have the money, you can pick up a U.S. copy 7 days a week. While with this there are only 10 known copies and collectors estimate 25 or so in existence.

Earlier this week, I watched an estate auction where a raw FF#1 in 4.5 condition sell for right in the GPAnalysis 12 month average range.

I thought I found a bargain, turned out to be full retail.

I sold an FF1 0.5 Universal for $1,500 in March 2018. It was $400 over last recorded sale on GPA.

The same copy just sold for $3,500. 

I can understand a gradual increase in demand but this run up has been ridiculous.

Quite true. I sold a very nice cgc 3.0 in July 2018 for $13k and a structurally decent cgc 1.5 for $7k less than a month later.
