Probably so.  They do have five theater movies and decades of cartoons, too, don't they. :kidaround:

No, but they have porn. Who doesn't like that these days? OK, nobody will admit to it.

Something is off... your math.  It was over 14 months ago. :gossip:

This is why I don't post on internet forums much. I obviously got the year wrong. It was 2018 not 2019.  But instead of just pointing that out...........you know.

OH boy do I feel stupid now!

OH boy do I feel stupid now! Happy?

I post 2 comments on this thread regarding the super high price this comic went for, and we all know it was extremely high, and I get 6 cheap shot comments in response.

 

 

Don't take it personally. Really. Love your username.

I will only take cheap shots at the person who paid $90,000 for that book. :roflmao:

Really? Thanks, I really needed that boost today.  

I was wondering if Bid History is available on Heritage. Probably not. Could this have been two or maybe three people just bidding each other up? Once it hit around 45 or 50K I would think most everyone would have just bailed. Also if This turns out to be a bad sale meaning a deadbeat high bidder does Heritage make that known? And my final question to anybody who may want to chime in is do you think this will set a precedent or do you think the next 9.8 will come back down to the around previous level price wise?

I had the first 9.8 and I remember when I posted it here, some folks were saying there wouldn't ever be another - black cover, limited press run and all.  I have told the story of how I didn't want the book or the next three issues but the guy at the LCS I went to back then told me to get them.  Never read them and just stashed them away.  Didn't have them pressed prior to subbing (not even sure if I knew about pressing).  Still have them.  Here is my #1 and this thread makes me so happy lol although that price is just dumb.  And btw, I don't even like the turtles.

Hi, so you had the first 9.8 ever graded? Wow. So if this 90K sale is legit I suppose this is a good day for you.

There's a 9.8 that will be in the November HA auction.  Does the current 9.8 consignor also own that November 9.8? :idea: :wink: :whistle: hm

Hi, yes mine was the first.  The other recorded sales are crazy to me.  I was/am too old to appreciate the turtles.

I included the Three Stooges emoji to indicate I was just ribbing you, for funsies, supercoolish. Don't feel bad, I get math wrong -1% of the time.
