The books are great, but i am shoked on how people are pricing them now:  $3,000 - $4,000 for extremly low grades .There is a $2,260 pending sale at CLINK for a .05 I am not familiar with Clink ,,, did the winner already paid for it? or pending sale means it wasn`t completed? There`s another .05 to be auctioned next month , lets see how it ends

I saw a raw #2 sell for $4000 on eBay recently. Looked low/midgrade. 

Didn't realize that copies in the super low grade range were bringing $2000+.

The CC auction next month has nice, mid-grade copies of both #1 and #2, will be interesting to see where they end.

Mask 1 & 2 were worth only a few hundred bucks a few years ago-although the covers were always freakin' awesome. With LB Cole & horror so hot now, I think that .5 still went a bit crazy. Someone probably felt the eye appeal was better than .5 brittle. I agree with them on that. I also think this copy sold for higher because it was the first copy offered in a long time & at an entry level. That's my 2 cents.

I agree.  Also, there are a handful of other Cole books in the CC auction. Some really nice BB's and even an Captain Flight 11 plus others. I think they may "cannabalize" each other.  The Catman, Power 4, Suspense 12 may go lower than normal (whatever that is) if peeps go for the Mask books.
