my wife actually sat with me and watched this live................ i almost had to give her cpr when she saw the prices. she could not believe what she was seeing and kept asking if i had anything like that, lol. the really interesting pieces sure did well.

Yes, Robert, I know the feeling. The wives usually say "sell it" so we can renovate the house. They don't understand that when I want to retire, I can't just sell the upgraded bathroom right for a profit.

 And yes Robert has an awesome collection.

I'm the buyer on this -- I'm a huge Murphy fan and a huge fan of his MIS run, so I was willing to go up for it, there's not a lot of really good splashes on the market from this title.  I have another splash that isn't as good but I did acquire recently for much less.  

Thanks for the insight on the buy, and congratulations by the way. It has to be one of the better splashes from the run- with both main and both supporting characters in well rendered full body shots.

I only have a couple of Murphy pieces, I love him also- I wouldn't mind getting a couple more myself before I hang the gloves up.

Thanks!  my favorite Murphy piece is the Hawkman 4 complete story (first Zatanna) which is just beautifully rendered.  An incredible artist.

It is always a conflict on when things sell high as it is nice that this stuff is worth something but darling wife is always - Sell It!

So Robert - well don't tell us how you responded but you do have some very fine art in your collection....

i don't remember, mark- i was still woozy from the smelling salts the paramedics  gave me after seeing the price on the lobo 1 cover. thank you (and steven) for the nice words about my collection!  :)

There's a truckload more Lobo in the next signature HA. 

Maybe preorder a case of smelling salts? :)

My point is that it isn't like comic art is the only thing in this world soaring in price. Quality (be it stocks or art) is always going to increase much faster than the norm.

You are right about that imho.

The John Byrne FF splash with Daredevil just took a big jump

Star Spangled Batman/Robin splash took a big jump

Art I am watching is still real low but that will change tomorrow

If prices on the 1st day are any guide, then I will again be sitting on the sidelines during the next few days.

Maybe we can sit together because I definitely feel like I will be getting blown out of the water.

congratulations on a GREAT pickup! I was watching it to see where it landed, not because I had a chance in hell of getting it. Such a great splash!

Congrats B! That’s a great splash from a gotta-have comic for MIS and Anderson fans.

Do you have room for one more? I whittled down to 2, and both of them are already over the value I put on them. Clearly, I forgot to carry the one. One page is a long sought after piece that I might never see again, so the evil, over-bidding FOMO (fear of missing out) dude that lives between two folds my brain is whispering stuff...

How are you all approaching those types of pages? How much “stretch” is prudent over your set FMV to get a piece like that? I’m also thinking I just don’t have the computational “sea-legs” yet for this crazy market.

Really?  We must be looking at different lots.  I'm tracking over 200 lots and most of them barely moved since yesterday.  Some items will need to quadruple or even quintuple to hit FMV today and tomorrow.

As I mentioned, I’m only watching two, so my sample is much smaller. One shot up very early and seems to have at least two very motivated buyers, and the other nearly tripled this week. I wasn’t speaking to every price, just commiserating with a couple people that have the Platinum Day Blues with my small watched slice of the auction, and floating a question.

You also may be a lot more experienced than myself (sounds very likely), and able to adjust to the new market better. :)
