Not a bad day huh?  So now the question is are you going to stay a TMNT #1 club member or sell it?

That is a great question and the other question that I have, is are you going to sell the 3rd or 4th print of the TMNT #1? I might be interested! Congrats on the great score of books and grade!

Honestly not too sure yet. Seems like TMNT1 has seen a recent increase in price so I might hold onto it for a bit into 2018 to see how it goes. I will end up eventually selling it but just not right now. I only collected Batman books in the past but I've started collecting Spider-Man so that'll knock a lot of keys out on that end.

The only other book I have remaining is the 4th print, I'll send you a PM.

Probably a smart move.  Hold on to your winners.  They ain't making any more of these!

A guy contacted me about selling his collection, mostly 80s and 90s indie books. He says he has TMNT 1-5 1st prints signed and sketched by Eastman. I'm not too knowledgeable about these books but I know there are counterfeits out there, just don't know how good they are. I've attached the pics he sent when he was sending pics of the collection. I read on another site the Gobbledygook ad is indicative of the 1st print on TMNT 1.

Any insight would be appreciated, thanks.

 

Buy 'em first and worry about it later . . . :sumo:
