Now that I own a copy I have to ask -- what is the funny little white shape above the "t" in "Knight"?  It seems to be on all copies.

It's the logo for the distribution company, Independent Distributors... or something like that.... if you look closely, the white shape is actually North America. This appears on MANY comics from the 50's. GOD BLESS....

Guess I'll have to get a pic when I get home... but I'm in! :headbang:  CGC 3.5 OW/W SIGNATURE SERIES- STAN LEE ... picked it up during a fund raiser here on the boards... many years ago!

I found a low grade copy of black knight 1 a few years ago and sold it a few month later well before this new hype.  Why do I ever sell anything again?

Got my raw copy graded - pretty happy with the results - this one stays firmly in the PC :)

What do you guys think the fair market value of my book is? It’s so hard to judge given its rarity and fluctuating sales data.

It's hard to say -- as you say, prices are all over the place.  I am happy to share that I won my CGC 6.5 OW/W copy for $1,899 at the August 29 ComicLink auction.  Relative to the asking prices you will see on eBay, this is an absolute steal -- I've seen people asking for more than double what I paid -- but I would think auctions tend to provide the clearest indication of the true market for a particular book.

Anyway, I hope this helps you!

Thanks man yeah I watched your book on comic link - great deal sir! I think we won’t have a clear indicator until eternals comes out and we see a few sales but my feeling is it’s a long term hold - with its rarity I honestly value it at being more than a lot of top 20 silver age marvel books - a lot of people probably don’t agree but if a black knight movie comes out of eternals there’s only 40 people (or fewer depending on people’s stash) that own a CGC graded copy and I have a feeling that the Rawls that are out there are only going to populate the lower segment grade wise of the census. Time will tell but I’m very happy to have my copy.

I agree with you. This book could be very valuable in the years to come.
