Ridiculous, but the same can be said by nearly every book nowadays. You can pick up a 9.6 for around $900 (still too much IMHO) so why someone would pay nearly $3000 more for a 9.8 is beyond me, I am glad I am not one of those " must have a 9.8" merchants.

I lucked out and grabbed a 9.8 signed by all three Romitas here on the boards back in October I think for $1700. I'm not a stickler for 9.8s so I'm seriously considering selling if an unsigned can go for nearly $4k now

This Market will not be here in a few months when everybody starts traveling again

Yeah! I cannot imagine many buyers wanting to shell out $3000+ for this book, but who knows? :insane:

It's a nice book, but it would have to sit at that price for awhile until people believe it is worth that. Imagine the book, and a relatively minor supervillain, being as expensive or 50% the value of an IM 55. Spidey attracts the value of his villains too

Was watching this last night out of curiosity and it ended  $1000 more than I expected. Prices for 9.8s are getting out of control

Only a couple months ago a Stan Lee signed 9.8 went for $1000 on comiclink

it was just at two grand, which was a big pop for this book that had never exceeded a grand until 2020. insanity. however, hobgoblin is rumored to be the hair and makeup person for benedict cumberbatch's stand-in's brother-in-law for guardians of the infinity wandavision 3 in 2026.

Hobgoblin was spidey's main adversary for about 4 years and then he got moved over to second tier. But yeah, he's not green goblin or venom in terms of pop culture.
