Meantime, ToS 39 continues to post generally strong numbers- 

Two 5.5's @ ~$9k

5.0 SS @ $11.5K

:whatthe:

According to GPA, X-Men #1 in 5.5 just hit $10K, with another sale of $9.600 in April so TOS 39 is starting to catch up. :devil:

It is interesting to see X-Men #1 at the same level or slightly ahead of TOS 39 pricewise in 6.0 and under, but in 6.5+ TOS 39 has a noticeably higher price point.

I really thought the high population would prevent this book from seeing these values...or at least, seeing them so quickly...astounding.

It defies expectations - not many other major superhero and villain first app combinations in silver age

If we go back for a two year run (2017-2019), then I believe it is the clear cut winner with prices up around 3x across all grades. Then again, FF 4 and FF 5 are likely in the same situation.

Agreed.  

But much like Avengers 4, I don't know if I consider FF 4 to be a "mega key".

FF 5 definitely more so, and it has indeed done well this year too in most grades.

It's a legit common Marvel book, which is saying something. Most Marvel keys are already common by nature.

Great thread.

Here are a few speculations that i think will surge:

FANTASTIC FOUR #49-reason: first appearance of SILVER SURFER and GALACTUS featured on a cover plus the black cover makes this a tough book to find in high grade.

X-MEN #10-reason: first silver age appearance of Ka-Zar and Savage Land. Rumors are that this character will enter the MCU.

X-MEN #9-reason: first X-MEN vs AVENGERS. With X-Men returning to the MCU it is only a matter of time.

AVENGERS #48-reason-1st Black Knight

FF#52

Will become top 10 silver age key by the time Black Panther 2 comes out.

Strong rumor he will be new leader of Avengers in next movie now

Spoiler

that Cap, Thor and Iron Man are gone.

Interesting books but not so much mega keys.

I thought the same would apply to X-Men 1 and (especially with) IH 181 as well (and was wrong of course).

Years ago I used to collect sports cards and the 1986 Fleer Michael Jordan was scarce relative to other issues of the same time frame, but there were thousands and thousands of copies.  As the game of basketball went global, and ebay went global, you started seeing the card dry up.  Still not "rare" by any means but the growth of demand was outpacing the supply.  I see the same happening now with the MCU/DC bringing in new fans across the globe.  When you are looking at key books with POP in the low thousands, perhaps it's a lot for North America + UK.  Expand that out to more countries and all of a sudden it's not so much to go around any more.  

Endgame will have done less than $1b in NA + UK.  Yet globally it has taken almost $2b.  Movie going is certainly a more common past time than comic book collecting.  But no doubt the growing popularity of superhero movies will usher in a new wave of collectors.

I don't see it ever being in the top 10. I think it came too late.

I’d be surprised as well. It would have to take out books like TTA27, BB28, Sho 22, or Avengers 1. 

But I’ve got a FF52, so let it happen!

Well, I have TTA 27, BB 28, Sho 22, Avengers 1, and FF 52. Let's just hope all these books continue to increase in price.

Are those results high or low?

TOS #39 is a tad low, likely due to the quality of the book itself. The X-Men #1 was a new GPA high on August 1st, but it has been surpassed by a sale at $30,000 for a CGC 8.0 on August 5th now.
