When it comes to this point business; is there formula for nice eye appeal 0.5-1.0.   I know people pay a premium for an entry level copy so such price per point  doesn’t apply to 0.5-1.0.  Does the formula start at 1.5 and ends at ?  Too many variables to consider.  Would work better for Bronze Age books

My own opinion is 3.0 and below gets the $50k/ point. Above a 3.0, the price per point comes down a bit

I think on megs grails you’ll find people paying 1.0 prices  on nice looking 0.5 ‘s because of the opportunity to buy one is so rare

Will the Batman 1 conserved 4.0 get a higher hammer in its current state or in its original  if it had remained in a qualified 1.0(or whatever grade it was originally)

be interested in what other board members think about this topic, since i'm of the opinion that the book is in the slab and is protected from further handling.  I could see the conservation in this case helping out if someone wanted to keep the book raw and read

I read a lot of Batman 1's Sup 1's Action 1"s Tec 27's Cap 1's back in the early 80's when the sold in the 1000 and under range (shrug) I would think if you took them out of the slab now days you would lose a 1000 plus easy just to read.

Comic books are not on the stands for 25 cents anymore and it seems that they are not to be  Read And Enjoyed  anymore like it was when I was a kid.  Comics have come to be Investments and money makers now.

Comics have lost that thrill of that smell and feeling they had real shame.

Bat 1 CGC 1.0 unrestored brittle vs Bat 1 CGC 1.5 qualified ow centerfold married. I say the qualified copy is more desireable.  Surprised the 2 books are in the same auction, similar bidders

Yes, I would have to say that the Qualified copy seems to present much nicer from a strict visual cover point of view. (thumbsu

It might possibly finished on top by the time it's all said and done, but at this current point in time, it's running behind by about $7K.  I guess we'll just have to wait a few more days to see which copy comes out on top in the end.  :taptaptap:
