This week I thought we’d have a look at someone who’s been getting a lot of press lately. Archie’s making headlines with his imaginary weddings to Betty and Veronica (not at the same time). Not surprisingly I found a bunch of Archie stuff on eBay the have recently ended.

Let’s have a look:

archie 5Archie Comics #5, MLJ Publications, (11/42), graded by CGC at 3.0 with Off White pages sold on eBay for $440.00 on Nov 24th. Overstreet price guide value for this comic at 3.0 is $310.00. This is a solid 42% above guide for a low grade non hero run book from the golden age.

 

 

 

archie xmas 4Archie’s Giant Series Magazine #4, MLJ Publications, (1957), graded by CGC at 4.0 with (what looks like) Cream to Off White pages sold on eBay for $79.00 on Nov. 21st. Overstreet price guide value for this comic at 4.0 is $104.00. That’s 76% of guide. I’d say that’s pretty good for a low grade late 1950s Archie run book.

 

 

 

pep 28Pep Comics #28, MLJ Publications, (6/42), graded by CGC at 4.5 with Off White pages sold on eBay for $425.00 on Nov. 15th. Overstreet price guide value for this comic at 4.5 is approx. $293.00. That’s a tidy 45% above guide. Very early Archie and a classic Hangman Swastika cover will do that to a comic book.

 

 

 

pep 35Pep Comics #35, MLJ Publications, (1/43), graded by CGC at 4.0 with Cream to Off White pages sold on eBay for $375.00 on Nov. 15th. Overstreet price guide value for this comic at 4.0 is $200.00. An 87.5% premium above guide is quite impressive if you ask me.

 

 

 

So there you have it. Certainly all the exposure Archie’s been getting lately has transferred nicely into the back issue market.
