I know this is a GA forum, but I thought some of the high grade Shasta Lake SA DC’s did amazingly well. 

Agreed.  In some cases near double the most recent comps.  I was hoping to nab a B&B or two, but I couldn't justify the high prices.

Police #1 CGC 2.5 hammers at 5k+

All I can say is that this particular book has been on fire and buring red hot for the past year or so after being in the doldrums for a long long time:  :applause:

Golden Age (1938-1955):Superhero, Police Comics #1 (Quality, 1941) CGC GD+ 2.5 Off-white to white pages....

It's about time this key book woke up from its decades long slumber, as clearly evident with this relatively low grade copy going for over 4X condition guide.  Definitely something which we would not have seen a couple of years ago.  :whatthe:

All Top 16 cgc 8.5 $8700...

All I can say is that this is an absolutely shockingly strong price for a copy of All Top 16 in CGC 8.5:  :whatthe:  :whatthe:

Golden Age (1938-1955):Adventure, All Top Comics #16 (Fox Features Syndicate, 1949) CGC VF+ 8.5 Off-white to white pages....

Although it's one of the 2 highest graded copies, it's still only a CGC 8.5.  (shrug)

Or are they possibly hoping for Seven Seas 4 mentality to come into play when they look at this cover.  hm  :wishluck:

It's a great cover, but no Seven Seas 4. And it is one of the best, if not the best All Top cover. However SS4 is in a league of it's own.

I really wanted The Arrow 2 but went for way more than I thought it would . This is a wonderful consolation prize the lowest on the CGC census but I love those Arrow covers

The Arrow did go pretty high but a great second choice always loved the colors on this one :banana:

When I see books posted in this thread I assume they are for collections. Then I see it as make offer to owner so now I think it's for a quick flip or just curious what offer I can get but I'm keeping it. Reminds me of the commercial where guy buys an expensive painting at auction and is immediately ready to sell it before going onto the next item for auction.

Do people have good luck at times doing this so soon?

My guess? Occasionally

I believe that usually, the item owner doesn’t even know that this option is “on”.

Well, it looks like the Cindy 37's are continuing their march upwards with this copy finishing up at $4,200 even withut any additional live bids:  :whatthe:

Golden Age (1938-1955):Romance, Cindy Comics #37 (Timely, 1949) CGC FN 6.0 White pages....

At this elevated price point, I would probably go much more for a book like this at a fraction of the price:

 

:luhv:   :takeit:

A 7.0 Cindy #37 sold June 2017 for $5,225, so this result seems in-line.  There is an 8.0 (highest graded) on clink right now, so that will be interesting.

imo, Junie ain't no Cindy.  Its the WWII pin-up style of Cindy cover that set's it apart.

Well, looks like that complete GGA cover run of Junior Comics must have finished in record price territory with all of them in the $3K+ range.  :luhv:   (thumbsu

Surprisingly, this recently particular hot issue finished up with the lowest price out of the entire run at only $3,120:  :whatthe:

Golden Age (1938-1955):Humor, Junior Comics #15 (Fox, 1948) CGC FN/VF 7.0 Off-white pages....

 

That was a surprise to me as well. At the end of the day I broke just above even on the Junior and Sunny runs. Definitely awesome books and I hope some boardies got some of them. 

If you pretty much broke even on the Junior set of books, I assume you must not have picked them up from Heritage then since their archives indicate that all of these prices were the highest they had ever recorded for any of their Junior books?  hm

I took a half-hearted stab at Junior's 11 and 13, came close, but still no cigar.  :frown:

Most were private buys. Great bunch of books. My favorite GGA run in the golden age with a nod to Phantom Lady of course.

There continue to be escalating prices on books where I don't even understand what the appeal is - but it doesn't mean the appeal isn't there. Actually it's a good thing for the hobby to not be so tied to spandex-wearing superheroes. I say that as someone heavily invested into DC Golden Age!

Yes indeed, as it was certainly nice to see some long out of favor genres or publishers like Dell with their Four Color run be able to fetch strong prices:

Golden Age (1938-1955):Cartoon Character, Four Color (Series One) #25 Popeye - Central Valley Pedigree (Dell, 1942) CGC VF/NM 9.0 Off-white to white pages....

Even a book like this (albeit a pedigree copy and the highest graded copy) being able to sell for multiples to guide at $2,880 along with a few other Popeye's.  :applause:

Or even some of the Four Color Western books which have never seen much steam at all for multi-decades:

Silver Age (1956-1969):Western, Four Color #734 Cheyenne - File Copy (Dell, 1956) CGC NM+ 9.6 Off-white pages....

Love these uber HG Dell File Copies such as this one here which sold for multiple top of guide at $1,080.  (thumbsu

Okay, I might be stretching it a bit with the Westerns here since books since although virtually all of them sold at a healthy premium to guide, you still got the odd ones like Rocky Lane #1 which managed to go at only a big discount to guide.  (shrug)
