The actual Garfield published strips don't cost very much.  Is there really a market for their prelims?

Apparently there is a market for Jeff Foxworthy’s so, why not?

I like that it makes it difficult for the snipers who are trying to snipe a lot of books.

You do realize that with the availability of proxy bidding, sniping is irrelevant? If you put in a high enough proxy, a snipe never works. And, there is no reason to think a sniper wouldn’t bid the higher amount later if there weren’t a hard deadline.

I don't know, but classic Garfield from the 70s and 80s are the golden years for me, so these '84 prelims caught my eye, anyway.

the Byrne Xmen pages were all available for sale prior to this, if the reserves are just what they were listed they are not attractive.

I’m bummed, I noticed all their art is graded VF 8.0... I never buy OA that isn’t 9.8 ... ok once I slummed it and bought a 9.6 ; )

Well apparently some collectors are interested in the offerings that CC has in today’s auctions, Thanks Micah

The Byrne X-Men pages have respectable numbers on them but haven’t hit the reserves yet... a hour left, will they cross the finish line and be sold or go back in the vault???

Reserve(s) not met...Those Byrne X-Men pages are 'toxic', at those prices, for certain.

They are some really nice pages I’m surprised someone didn’t crack and buy one!

Anyone watch it to the end? If so where did the bidding end. At about 1hr to go the top 3 X-men pages were a respectable 35, 34 and 25k

The Byrne xmen pages were all available to buy for months at what the reserve was... Did not make sense that they would move.

So those X-Men pages neither sold nor went "back to the vault" but are still hanging out at asking prices that are - I was going to say "nihilistic" but I like "toxic" as First Upgrade said above. As the rabbits in Watership Down would say, those pages are now embleer.

Did the Kirby pages sell? Anyone see what they went for?

Thanks.  I know is not OA related,  but I was also curious about the results of Mike King Concert Posters.

I should have put them on my watch list. ¬¬
