Thanks for posting this!  The author did a good job, and the rankings match up pretty well with my own collecting experience over the past few years.

Thanks for posting that interior shot of the CMB #24 article! (I was going to dig my copy out)

As for the 'Hard to Find in HG,' it seems like the list is a little 'chalk' after about the top 15.

That's not meant as an insult. It's just that we have some hard, global data now to look at with the census (even if it's not perfect).

It would be interesting to have sales data and search queries that dealers have from their own websites and see what they're seeing!

 

When I was putting my high-grade run together, #28 was probably the toughest just from a can-you-find-it perspective. LOTS of color-touched copies back in the raw days.

#11 was an awful pain for sure - I ran through several color-touched copies. #44 was tough. #20 drove me crazy. #13 was difficult with the black spine edge. #9 was a hard.

#6 was annoyingly tough. I lucked into a nice #2, but it can be a pain. #3 was also tough. But #4 took me forever.

 

As for demand, and slightly derailing the ASM #11 thread - here's my guesswork at the list now:

Rank // Issue Number

1 = #1

2 = #14

3 = #50

4 = #3

5 = #31

6 = #39

7 = #40

8 = #2

9 = #4

10 = #13

11 = #9

12 = #42

13 = #15

14 = #33

15 = #28

16 = #5

17 = #6

18 = #17

19 = #41

20 = #20

21 = #23

22 = #7

23 = #11

24 = #16

25 = #8

26 = #10

27 = #37

28 = #27

29 = #46

30 = #18

31 = #19

32 = #12

33 = #32

34 = #21

35 = #22

36 = #27

37 = #26

38 = #29

39 = #44

40 = #34

41 = #47

42 = #43

43 = #35

44 = #24

45 = #48

46 = #49

47 = #45

48 = #30

49 = #36

50 = #38

 

I'd probably drop the first three Annuals in these ranges:

Annual #1 (demand rank 3-8)

Annual #2 (demand rank 30-35)

Annual #3 (demand rank 30-35)

I love looking at the numbers, here's a current AF15 & 1-20, total graded census as of right now. (in the time it took to paste this, 14 more #300 were probably graded):roflmao: Does someone here have that #19 9.9? Would love to see a pic.

I would think a 9.9 should have better staple alignment and white pages.

There is an unusually high number of very high grade #19's, why is that?

No idea why but it’s a good thing because it has an iconic cover.

ASM 16 is my best followed by 19 but 11 looks good.

There was a find of them.

The 9.9 came from a collection where there were several copies.

I think Terry O'neil found it.

Las Vegas collection.  Multi-copy stacks of pristine unread early SA Marvels, singlehandedly jacked up the high grade census numbers for a slew of comics, including ASM #14, #19, and Daredevil #1.  The collection was so big, the story goes the collector had entire rooms of a house filled with it.  Terry was partnered with Dave Reynolds on the collection.

Though I've always thought of DD #1 as relatively common in high grade (for a book of its stature), and ASM #19 as well, I wouldn't say that about ASM #14.  Can't remember the last time I saw a 9.4 for sale.
