Yup, really picking up steam with this weekend's offerings:

Keown, Bolland, Colan, and Romita, just to name a few...

This one has a ton of great artwork.  Maybe not a big A++ piece yet but a ton of solid B material that could potentially be in my price range.

The one surprise to me is they are probably more than 1/2 way done listing items for this auction and not a single Charles Schulz piece yet.

As long as I've been around the hobby, just over the last couple years have I started seeing art I used to own show up in these auctions as major pieces.

This caused a stir at it's last hammer, as I recall. Back on the block...or is this a different piece?

Yup, same lot that sold for $72K in 2017.

ok, what's everyone's take, over or under the 2017 finish? mine is under. Then again I didn't think it would hit $72K then.

It’s difficult to call where the hammer will fall on this. 

The fact is that this is THE most key X-Men comic to come out in modern times, placing it at the uppermost echelons of modern superhero OA covers. 

The problem is that anymore who would have a real emotional connection to this comic or the character, is too young and unlikely to be player in this right now, unless they’ve have had some early career success.  So anyone buying this now, aside from liking the art (which is great), would be paying up for the historical importance and possibly on a speculative basis that there is a good chance that this art will appreciate in the coming decades. 

My gut feeling is that there is enough ‘perceived’ value built into this page from the speculative aspect alone that it has a good chance of going over what it went for a few years ago.

Scrolling this my screen showed only the portion of your post that I quoted above, which made think "Which one of the Avengers is she?"

I do'nt think I have ever seen a McKean Sandman cover sale. What would something like that go for? The number 6.

The Nyx art sold last in 2017, the same year the movie Logan came out. I have to imagine there was a great deal of speculative hype around X-23 at the time. I'll be surprised if it hits or exceeds the previous hammer. That said, there aren't a lot of big modern 1st appearances and this is one of the bigger ones.
