I'll do my best to use my better judgement. LOL  I went through all of the books that you adjusted and didn't have any complaints whatsoever.  I appreciate what you do!

I'll only list books that are selling for at least twice the point value that they're listed at in 9.8.  GPA is my source. So without further ado...

Title/issue                      9.8 registry pts    Avg/last sale

Marvel Team-Up 11           120                   $432/Jul 2018

Marvel Team-Up 15           180                   $370/Mar 2020

Marvel Team-Up 16           120                   $227/Feb 2017 (I know it's not doubled but there are only 3 9.8s in existence out of 68 total graded: 4.41%)

Marvel Team-Up 17           120                   $250/Jan 2010 (Last sale was a decade ago, I know)

Marvel Team-Up 18           120                   $260/Sep 2018

Marvel Team-Up 21            75                    $326/Aug 2015 (Too stale?)

Marvel Team-Up 22            75                    $125/Dec 2013 (Only one 9.8 exists out of 28 total graded: 3.57%)

Marvel Team-Up 23            75                    $248/Nov 2019

Marvel Team-Up 25            75                    $360/Aug 2019

Marvel Team-Up 26            75                    $151/Feb 2020

Marvel Team-Up 27            75                    $275/Jun 2018

Marvel Team-Up 28            75                    $225/Feb 2011 (Western Penn pedigree) Only two 9.8 exist out of 31 total graded: 6.45%

Marvel Team-Up 30            75                    $360/Nov 2017 (Only one 9.8 exists out of 22 total graded: 4.76%)

I'll stop at issue 30 and pick up after you had a chance to look over these.  

Since I was putting down percentages, I'd like to revisit Marvel Team-Up 1 where there are a mere three 9.8's that exist out of 994 graded.  That's a staggering 0.30% success rate!

Thanks for any and all considerations 

Scores Updated. Thank you

Hey Matt,

  I just added an Ash vs. The Army of Darkness #1 CGC 9.8 to my set.

  It came up with 0 points for it.  Can you switch it to the 32 so I can take 1st (for the moment...)

Thanks

Score updated per your previous request. Thank you

Good afternoon,

I am not sure if this is the correct area for this "request" but I figured I would throw it out there and see if it sticks.

The Moon Knight 1980s series registry has the Three Werewolf By Night (32, 33 & 37), as well as the two Marvel Spotlight appearances (28 & 29) as part of their score, which I would argue offsets the point of that particular set. With the incredible score that WWBN #32 offers it makes the set not about the 38 issue run but who has the highest grade WWBN #32. A rough guess example is that a 9.4 WWBN #32 is almost equivalent to the entire 38 issue run in 9.8.  In full disclosure I have a set competing for the top slot in that registry, but if the 5 above books were to be removed I would not catapult into first place (although my full run of the 38 issues definitely would be higher than 16th).

There is a Moon Knight (Master Set) which seems a more appropriate place for the 5 books (they are already in the set) mentioned above so that the 1980 Moon Knight series can shine on their own. 

If this is not the appropriate area for this request then please let me know. I would also welcome input from board members as I recognize that I am just one opinion of many.

 

Thank you for your time and attention,

Hello @jcronin,

At first glance I would agree with you. This is a 1980 set and the books were published prior to this set title date. Just for the sake of clarity, will you please post this as its own thread on the CGC Registry section of the boards? This will garner more views and possible feedback from others. You may include my comments as well. Thank you

Please take a look at The Walking Dead 1 Second Printing WW Portland Edition 2013 https://comics.www.collectors-society.com/registry/comics/SlotScoreDetail.aspx?SlotID=170441

This was limited to just 250 copies and attracts a selling price premium of x4 over the other 2013 Wizard World TWD editions.

Suggest its score might be bumped from 48 for a 9.8U to about 160-200.

Thank you for considering.

Hey Matt,

Comic Connect auction realized prices for the following books.

Marvel Team-Up 9 CGC 9.8 $560

Marvel Team-Up 10 CGC 9.8 $1,000

Marcel Team-Up 18 CGC 9.8 $398

Could you please take a look at these?  I will provide links To the books tomorrow.

I think these prices are a wee bit inflated, especially issue 10.  It appears that two people with sheer determination to win were bidding on this book and one finally came to their senses. LOL  This shouldn't be more than a $600 book.  Bottom line is that someone actually paid this $1K.

Would you please update the score on Vengeance of Vampirella #1 (1994, Harris) - Royal Blue Edition? A 9.8 is currently 32 points while the standard version is 64 points.

More importantly this is probably the most valuable and sought after non-magazine Vampirella comic there is. More info is available here: http://www.recalledcomics.com/VengeanceOfVampirella1Blue.php

Only 100 copies were printed. It also was the very first of many "Royal Blue" variants of Vampirella comics marketed even up until this year.

It was sold new for $200 back in 1994 by Comic Cavalcade. A 9.0 copy sold for $2,000 a few years ago, and another 9.0 sold for $750 on 6/30/2019. No higher grades have been sold recently that I recall. This one comic is worth more than than the rest of the Vengeance of Vampirella run combined.

Thanks for your consideration.

I agree that the scores are very, very low based on the rarity of the book and most certainly should be corrected.  The link you quoted is often used to explain why 100 "Royal Blue" books were printed; however, the explanation below from another boardie per a discussion in late 2019 seems more plausible!

"I'd like to know where this "gold foil" story came from. The story repeated at "Vampirlore" and other places is not correct, despite being quoted from Bon. There was never going to be a "gold foil second printing"; they'd already MADE the gold foil variant for the first printing, so they certainly didn't "run out" of "gold foil"...they never made them in the first place ("gold foil 2nd printings.") .

What DID happen is that they went back to press to print a second printing, and they used (obviously) the teal foil...but they had the (what would come to be known as the "royal") blue foil available as well, so they printed "100" or so of the actual blues as a "test" run, to see what they'd look like...much like the red and blue Maxx 1/2s. Someone liked the look, and they then decided to use it going forward...with the next one being Vampirella #0 6 months later.

The idea that a publisher would order "gold foil" and the printer "ran out" and substituted another color is not plausible. They also wouldn't have only printed "100" of them if they had an actual order. Harris didn't yet do "100" print runs. The details don't jive."
