All trimmed but didnt he mention that he had also the non batman pages and centerfold exfept 4 non batman pages from another  copy?

80 k for the married / coverless / bound 27 with 4 missing non bat Pages ? Not disagreeing just not sure ........personally I think those bats pages are worth 15-20k apiece. The CC auction went low imo. 

Well I think also each batman page is 15-20k also so lets say 50k for 3 pages. The CF is easily around 30k to the right buyer. Since Someone missing a CF will need it to complete there copy. 

 

Sounds crazy but 100k for a coverless unrestored TEC 27 with cream to off white or better... might be the new norm. 

Action 1 might actually be 110-120k...

The Ac1 page 1 and page 5( cover swipe)   are 25-35k a piece. Then 5 other supes pages and the cf

Wow.....  Has that ever seen the light if day again ?  I don’t think I’ve ever seen it. 

Hi, yes that volume was around for a long time before it sold, if I recall an art dealer had it.

      I was offered very close to 100k in $$$$ and trade for my Coverless Tec from a board member, the deal was based on time payments & included a mid grade AF15 & this was over a year ago. I know I am biased but to me AC1 & TEC 27 are either close to or at 100k+ coverless in the right auction ( which still blows my  mind) I know the general feeling is 80s on a complete Tec but go get one for 75/80k today and please let us know?  It just seems like at this point nobody is quick to want to part with them when they are all original & complete, it's a classic case of the lower end having as much if not more demand then the top end, I mean how many collectors do you/we know throwing around 200k to 1 million on a single comic? I don't know any of those guys and most of the day to day action in our store & on the net is in silver and bronze keys ( or the hype BS books) with a big buy being 10/20k ( which is still  a lot of money in my neck of the woods ) & for most collectors.  ( Side Note) Iv got a few PMs asking who the buyer was, I mentioned this offer in a post months ago and the board member wanted to stay anonymous but is a long time member and it was a real stand up offer ( we still do deals) & if not for the fact that I know I would not be able to replace the book & blown the $$$$ I would have pulled the trigger. I assume anyone willing to part with one would want 10/20% CMV because it's really a blue chip comic.

Thanks for confirming that a TEC27 coverless is near 100k

 

im sure the next 1.0 blue label will surpise us!   Ac1 or tec27 whichever comes first to auction.

1.0 Blue in any condition is a minimum of 150k for either book imo

Yeah. Your right. A raw on eBay sold around 150 with what I  think was restoration in the bottom right front corner of the cover over a year ago  ?

     Over the last few days I got a few PMs about my opinion on the bound volume for sale on Ebay ( the price has been lowered) 10000% yes its a GREAT DEAL for the RIGHT collector IMHO at around 100/120k you find a way ( still a hell of a lot of $$$). However, bound examples are really a separate & unique type of collectable for a very specific type of collector & honestly NOT the same as a complete original book that has no cover.  At 100k I even think taking it apart there is money to made but it just seems so wrong to do so, it should stay together and go to someone who understands just how amazing it is to be able to own all those wonderful original stories and it's a solid long term (10yrs) investment as is. What's it worth when a Tec 27 comes to market and hits 2 million, 3 million and those pages are almost 100 yrs old? But again it needs to find the right collector.  On a side note: if this hit Heritage I think it might do the 120/130 but its a roll of the dice for sure.

You had great foresight on buying that first wrap. Pays to have a bit of vision.

100k is wear the bottom price should be at for a complete coverless. Even though im offering 80k lol

It was about 10 years or so ago, I purchased the 1st wrap of Action #1 for $3200 Many thought I  was crazy.  In 2013 I sold it for 5 figures.  

The auction buyer in this ebay listing stated the first page sold for 25.5K last year, and was brittle.  If I had 100K I would be in the market for a coverless, complete copy of Action #1

 

 

Well a new record 🏆for a single page. The page 5. Superman car lift. The cover swipe.  27.5k at comicconnect yesterday.

 

https://www.comicconnect.com/bookDetail.php?id=852626

 

To me its was more a 30k -35k in todays market and will rise alongside Action 1 complete and coverless values.

 

Congrats to the buyer!
