Is ‘Go Collect’ a reliable source of value?

For those who don’t want to fork over the subscription cost of GPAnalysis, does Go Collect offer comparable figures?  Overstreet seems way under what the current market sells for.  EBay seems a fair gauge.  But sometimes it’s nice to have a reasonable reference point for certain items that are offered for sale here or on other auction sites.

it doesn’t quite have the depth (across time) or breadth (across sellers), but has a better interface and tools.  I would guess if you were pricing things on the two platforms they would be remarkably similar.  It’s run by boardie @jhm.

I find that it is very accurate for books that sell often, but the default price multipliers for books sold rarely can show some unrealistic estimated values. As a paid subscriber you can customize your own own price multipliers for a given book.

I like it.  It is easy to use and I like the fact that their are pictures of each book sold if you subscribe.  I have found though that it can be slow in placing new sales on their site while GPA reports them faster.

Would be great if they had a trial run, I only want to see the previous sales of 1 book but need to pay a subscription to see it.

I use to have a subscription but stopped because I no longer by CGC books.  I agree is a solid tool all around for frequently sold books.  They did have a week trial when I signed on so I guess they no longer do that.

Vampirella Strikes #1 Comicspro sketch variant from 2013. There are 3 sales for a 9.8 and 2 for a 9.6 but they are sales for a year and older so can't check ebay for sales.

Recently sent mine to CGC and was curious on what they sold for but since I have no intention of selling mine I didn't see a point in paying the subscription fee so more of a curiosity thing :)

It does factor in C.Link which GPA does not

I think it is reliable for books that sell very frequently. I have used it lately to help with making informed purchases. I think for the most part it's accurate.

Glad it's reliable. I have my collection in Collectorz Comics and they're linked to Go Collect. But like some have mentioned, their database is small at this time.

That would make it a definite plus on a going forward basis, in comparison to GPA.  (thumbsu

I like the site, it fits well usually to prices...

Recently I've tried "different price issues" like 30 cent or 35 cents, those never have enough sales.

They don't track Nintendo Power.....

It's good for the slabs that are also more common :)

Whether you are a collector or a dealer, information is king.  A wise person would subscribe to both services... they work differently and each has their own strengths. It's under $200 per year for both of them combined... the cost of a few (or fewer) slabs.  Seems quite reasonable.

As long as they have all sales rather than the cherry picked sales they offered George.

Unlike other new sites this site isn't spamming itself everywhere its
letting its site do the talking which I like.

As long as they keep their current format I think it will do very well over
time.
