GoCollect has an AF15 in 6.0 recent sale at $98,000.   Can anyone verify this??   That is one huge jump from a price hovering around $60,000.   Thoughts.......

You must be unaware of the recent Heritage auction AF15 6.0 that went for 96K two weeks ago (4/1)?   AF15 has been up in many grades.  GPA also lists a 2.5 this month for over $25K, a 3.0 for $30K in March, a 4.0 this month for $46K.  So not a huge bump based on recent sales across many grades, and the $46K for a 4.0 actually suggests that a 6.0 is due for more significant gains.  A 6.0 has  historically been between two to three times the valuation of a 4.0 going back to 2010.   And there were additional  recent lofty valuations (I don't recall for which grades) that were not recorded by GPA because they were on ComicLink.   As for the specific $98K referenced in GoCollect...that would be another approx $100K for a 6.0 then.

i dont know what that is, but @Pantodudeis correct, there was a heritage sale april 1st for 96k. 

the increase in sales price for most key books from last november until now are enormous and unprecedented in this field. many books have appreciated 3-5x in 4 months. compared to that, af15's increase in all grades appears measured.

Is GoCollect a good place to get the information on sales and book values??    

i used to use it exclusively. however a few months back they were really having problems adding results in a timely manner. gpa seems to be more on top of that. however gpa does not use comiclink results, which can be significant. ideally one should use both.

How is GoCollect accessing data from ComicLink? I thought ComicLink considered their sales data to be proprietary.

gocollect provides links to the direct cl page where you can only see the final price by logging in, so only registered cl users can actually see the final hammer price. this seems to be their workaround, but they are not actually displaying the results. though i believe the CL numbers are also factored into their FMV.

The reason gocollect can do it and gpa can’t, which also explains the delays, is because gocollect uses humans to update their data...not an API. Or at least, that’s my understanding...

I have a GoCollect question.  I was looking at prices today and saw that their price guide prices were wildly higher than the actual sales they were using.  I know that when there are very few sales, it’s hard to draw conclusions as to their values, but when there are actual sales, you should use them as the value, and not calculate a price derived from say a 9.8 and a 4.0 and build a curve from them.  Real work]d sales ARE real world values until more data comes in.  Anybody have any insight into this?  Sorry I don’t recall which title it was , so sorry that important info is missing in my question...
