Are you going to do anything on the Comic Connect auction that is ending?  Some interesting prices.  For example, I think the McFarlane Spitfire and the Troubleshooters page ending price made the consignor happy.  A great page that really allowed an early view of McFarlane's style.  I never knew he worked on that book until I saw that. 

The $50.00 price written at the top of the page was a great reminder of what the prices of pages used to be.xD

I just took a look, almost $1K for that is insane and makes no sense!

Noting that Infinity Inc "splashy" type pages sell for around $800.00 I have to agree.  The consignor was a happy person when that page ended.  Like I said, there was some interesting ending prices in that auction.

Report on the November 2018 Heritage Platinum and Hake's auctions is up!

https://comicbookinvest.com/2018/11/23/market-report-november-2018/

 

That Joe Jusko Punisher WJ was in my crosshairs but I decided to back off because I thought it was going to go higher than it did and I felt the Cockrum piece was easier to bag. That and I’m not a fan of oversized pieces—too troublesome for me to store. 

Those Punisher covers came from the Jason Taulbee collection who sold off something like 25-35 Punisher covers over the last year. This is all casual observation but very few were top notch covers that didn’t go cheap but I’m sure the winners were happy with the prices. Most of the covers were sold through Hake’s, eBay, and privately. Unless it was by Michael Golden, the covers sold anywhere between $700 and $1300. The market was able to absorb them all but there certainly were not bidding wars with the less-than-A-tier group. With Punisher covers a-plenty, anyone like me who wanted one in their collection got one, and so by the time the Jusko came around, which seems to be the last from the good batch, collectors were satiated. That’s why I think it fell below expectations. If I’m right that Taulbee has sold all his collection I’d be interested to see how often Punisher covers from the 90s era pop up and if they don’t do better, because for year it seemed like an endless supply.

Great to cover pieces that were really auctioned. It was in the back of my mind but I never did a detailed comparison

 Lake Como Art Festival and LA Ultimate Comic Art and Collectibles Shows are mentioned in on the website but nothing about Big WOW! Comicfest? The interviewer needed to do more research.
