Wow, I'm sure glad I never bought those in the 90s...:tonofbricks:

And to think my good friend Tri-colorbrian made fun of me for paying $200 last year for this one raw :( I mean... I don't normally pick up rags like this but glad I did for this one

The Power #3 CGC 3.5 (an underrated cover) got $938.  A few other strong prices too.

Well, like the other major high dollar keys, it now looks like the rush to buy entry level copies of classic covers have also moved into the stratosphere. :whatthe:

Yes, if we flashback to the mid 90's, it looks like the Church copy of Mask 1 sold for something like $2,800 during the Diamond Int'l Galleries grand opening.  :takeit:

Speaking of Church copies and the Diamond Int'l Galleries grand opening back in the mid 90's, I remember the Church copy of this book sitting behind glass on the top shelf of the mahogany armoire in the library right next to the Church copy of Mask Comics #1.   :cloud9:

Needless to say, a perfect pairing with the Church Suspense 8 looking absolutely glowing with the lights shining on the stunning colors and according to CBM, it sold for close to triple guide at something like $2,400 at the time.  Will most definitely become the highest graded copy whenever it gets slabbed, as the current highest graded copies are 3 of them in only CGC 7.5 VF- grade.

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

Well, I guess it must still be too early in the game as this Ohio pedigree CGC 6.0 graded copy is still sitting at only $2,615:

Trying to decide if I should place a bid or not, but can't figure out if I might have missed the better deal with the CGC 0.5 graded copy that just sold on CL for $2,260.  lol

I guess it must be a case of you snooze, you lose.  zzz

Both MASK issues are great -- liked them ever since reading about them as a kid in the '80s -- I think it's safe to say I've been priced out of them, for the time being. ;) Wouldn't ever mind having either in my collection!

The Mask covers are cool, but neither make it into my personal top 10 Cole covers.

I bought it well after that (2011 maybe?), and didn't pay a whole lot more. Maybe an extra grand.

Well, if you put it up for sale now, I am sure you'll get a whole lot more. (thumbsu

Maybe even an extra ten grand.  :whee:

Based on the offers I've already gotten, I am sure I would do ok.

I can’t think of a single cover in the world that creeps me out as much as this one.  I’m afraid a spirit would inhabit my comic box (ok, I’m only kidding.  Sort of)
