With the current comic market at an all time high ( due to several factors) and some books seeing gains of well over 100%  WHAT BOOK(S) DO YOU WISH YOU HAD HELD ONTO JUST A................................. LITTLE BIT LONGER?

 

I sold a .5 X Men #1 last year for $900 buck and thought I did really well, watched the buyer sell it a few weeks ago for over 4k lol

The ASM 300 Newsstand I sold 8 Years ago for $100 does not count, so I'm going with TMNT Adventures NM+ set-1-4, for $19.95 1 year ago.

Sold a Marvel Spotlight #5 in 8.5 for $500 a few years ago....right before it started shooting up in price.

I sold a MS5 CGC 9.4 ages ago (circa 2009) for $700.  More recently wishing I had waited on selling my SME15 CGC 9.8 a few more months.

The short answer is I sold books to buy other books.

The big Bronze ones that I should have held longer were:

WWBN 32 CGC 9.2

MS 5 CGC 9.0

Most recently, I regret selling JiM #85 4.5 to help finance my purchase of my AF #15 2.5. I sold it for $1,500, and it is now selling for $6,000+. I am very happy to have my AF #15, but that is one book I will probably never get back.

ASM316 9.8 Lee, Mcfarlane, Mich yellow label sold for 1500 years ago. It wasn't too much of a loss because I did replace that with X-men97 9.8 however. I don't know exactly what to make of that since X97 doesn't sell often in top grades compared to ASM316 which sell often. I think out of those two the 97 is better long term.
