Holy cow. Cap 103 cover, that insane FF 59 Black Bolt demi-splash, and, most importantly,  the litmus test for the future of the hobby, a Sal Buscema cover

Remembered the word "demi" and decided to use it even if I'm too lazy to look it up

Will the final bid meet or exceed the post it note price?

Trick question. The Peanuts with Peppermint Patty, clearly.

200 + 40 = 240 is my guess. Could be lower even but I'm not seeing higher.

What's up with those yuge hands?

Terrific cover.   250 seems fair.

Cap is so tiny on there. Red Skull fans out there? Personally, I don't like this above $80-90K.

I looked up the FF 59 half splash in the comic.  Difficult to price.  Amazing image of BBolt, large art.  But the two top panels are not that interesting and no FF.  Not quite sure where it will end up. Would look very nice on the wall though....

Published cover looks different than the original, Red Skull mouth for example

Must have visited a good dentist in-between takes.  No budding celebrity would be without a set of gleaming gnashers.

It’s a beauty but I think you’re pretty spot on. Not higher anyways. Now on a good day......two bidders with I don’t give a blank attitudes and the bankrolls to duke it out....

I do think it’ll go higher but some bidders  will undoubtedly think what you’re thinking. Not enough Cap!

Kirby sorta prime, Sal sorta prime....hmm based on a select few the irrefutable opinions on this board...1.8 million to .53 cents in Kirby’s favor? Or something like that, I think once you try and measure it you change the outcome.

Yeah the Red Skull appears to be to be touched up or fully redrawn. The mouth not only but look at the man on the left side, Skulls clothing is not in alignment with him anymore, the point of fabric goes from over his face to above the head.

I wonder if the comics code thought Skull's original mouth was too creepy or something? I like the original more.

I think the original looks way better than the published.  To me, Red Skull looks way more menacing.

So that means this a prelim or unused cover and people should discount their bids accordingly, to a point less than what I would pay.
