Auction Highlights

Superman #1 – Page 24 only, DC Comics, Supper 1939, designated PG by CGC sold for $405 on eBay recently. I’ve been asked to buy single pages of big book a lot recently, apparently it’s quite the trend. To date I’ve stayed away only because I’m not so sure of this market. A friend told me to look up Superman…

Active Comics #6, Bell Features, August/September 1942, Graded CGC 5.0 Cream to Off White pages sold for $326 on last week’s big ComicLink auction. I won this auction but I actually didn’t mean to, I mean I’m glad that I won it but I didn’t expect my bargain basement bid to actually win the day. I’m not sure why this “Canadian…

Walking Dead #1, Image Comics, October 2003, Graded CGC 9.8 with White pages sold for $3,000 on eBay recently. I can’t believe the legs this book has. I’ve counted Walking Dead #1 out after it went past $1,000 – I flipped every copy I got. I’ve counted Walking Dead #1 out past $2,000 – I flipped every copy I got. Well…

Xenozoic Tales (Cadillacs and Dinosaurs) Fax Header by Mark Schultz, undated, sold for $750. Source. Pretty soon a detailed description of what a fax is will be required… Advantage Buyer. Mark Schultz art is hard to come by, and his output is minimal to say the least. This is a penciled and inked piece featuring his most famous creations.

Cave Girl issue 13 splash by Bob Powell, 1943, sold for $6,572.50. Source. Bob Powell is an artist that just doesn’t get the credit he deserves. Very active from the 1940s to the 1960s, he produced a lot of pages. The market until this point has kept his work at much lower prices, and this is the very high end…

Heros The Spartan Episode 13 from Eagle Magazine Volume 14 issue 22, 1963, sold for $2,629. Source. Another excellent Bellamy Heros double page spread. Simply stunning art. But what a change a few weeks can make. In Auction Spotlight #2 we looked at the last auctioned Heros page at Heritage, which went for $5,736. Now this is the third on…

Booster Gold #1, DC Comics, February 1986, Graded CGC 9.8 with White pages sold for $371 on eBay recently. I was vaguely aware that there was a market for Canadian price variants from the 1982 to 1986 period where Marvel and DC printed the bulk of the issues showing the US/CDN/UK pricing while running a separate batch just for the…

Avengers Annual #10, Marvel Comics, 1981, Graded 9.6 Raw by CBCS sold for $87. I saw this on eBay thought this deserved a write up. So CBCS has started this raw grading service and books graded through this service are starting to pop up everywhere. Obviously there is not enough data to tell whether the hobby has embraced this new…

Our weekly look at an auction item that piqued our interest continues. DC Comics Presents Harley Quinn #1, DC Comics, 2014, Graded 9.6 White Pages by EGS Global sold for $25. I saw this on the just past ComicLink auction I have a few questions; Who the hell are EGS Global? Why is their book only getting 25% of a…

Our weekly look at an auction item that piqued our interest continues. Aces High issue 5 complete six page story Spads Were Trump by Bernie Krigstein, 1955, sold for $7200. Source. Russ Cochran auctions fly under the radar, mostly to their vary random assortment of material. Advantage Buyer. A complete EC Comics story for $7200, averaging $1200 per page. But you’re…

Scott started up the Auction Spotlight recently. He’ll cover one random art auction result a week and I’ll cover a random comic result. I’ll still do a full Auction Highlights when a big auction takes place. I found this result on eBay, it closed yesterday March 29th. Fantastic Four #1 from Marvel Comics, November 1961. A CGC 4.0 copy with…

Heros The Spartan Episode 6 from Eagle Magazine Vol 13 #48, by Frank Bellamy, sold for $5,736. Source. This may seem like a lot of money for a comic most have never heard of, but for those in the know it’s highly sought work. Bellamy did some amazing colour work for Eagle Magazine, so some Canadians and Australians were exposed…

Starting something new: a weekly look at one recent auction item, for perusal and discussion. I’ll be posting art auctions and Walt will be posting comic book auctions. Women Of DC Comics Style Guide by Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez, 1982, sold for $3,791.46. Source. Garcia-Lopez literally wrote the book on the official look of DC characters for their 1982 style guide, and…

Comic Link Winter Featured Auction The comic book portion of the ComicLink Winter Featured Auction ended Thursday March 2nd. This was an impressive auction loaded with books I really wanted! The tiara and the flowers went to a stunning CBCS 9.0 Amazing Fantasy #15 that closed at $240,222. I think this was a very important listing for CBCS, I’m sure…

Comic Link Fall Featured Auction The comic book portion of the ComicLink Fall Featured Auction ended Thursday December 8th. I’m really enjoying these CLINK auctions. The selection is great from every era! Tops of keys, tons of high grade, tons of unique stuff we don’t see every day, it’s like these guys know what they’re doing or something. The two…

Comic Link Focused Auction The comic book portion of the ComicLink Focused Auction ended Thursday September 29th. This auction was the follow up auction to the historic Featured Auction that ended September 8th. Those people down at ComicLink sure know how to sell “Whites”, they keep this up Mr. Trudeau may have to grand them honorary citizenship! The results were…

My recent Auction Highlights #95 post, the one that covered the Canadian Whites results of the recent ComicLink auction, was widely read, it had twice as many reads as my coverage of the broader auction results (Auction Highlights #94). Great news and an indication of the growing interest and growing awareness of the Canadian Whites. In the comments section, Whites…

Comic Link Summer Featured Auction The comic book portion of what I’ll call a historic ComicLink Summer Featured Auction ended Thursday September 8th. This auction was historic for the number of quality Canadian White’s available, quality in issue selection and quality in grade. Judging from the results I’d say the Whites are busting out of their tight trading cartels and…

Comic Link Summer Featured Auction The comic book portion of ComicLink’s Summer Featured Auction ended Thursday September 8th and there were plenty of very interesting results. The team at ComicLink did a stellar job on this one! The big book turned out to be the Whiz Comics #1 CGC 6.5 which fetched $106,000. It’s a tough book in the grade…

Comic Link Winter Featured Auction The comic book portion of ComicLink’s Winter Featured Auction ended Wednesday February 24th and there were some noteworthy results. The book that took top spot was a CGC 2.0 Action Comics #7, it earned an impressive $71,000. Second up was a CGC 6.5 All Star #8. I’d normally have a bone to pick with these…
