The Comic Link October Focused Auction has just ended, all results below ended between Tuesday October 23rd and Wednesday October 24th.
C-Link produced a rare dud with this auction. Sure there were some solid books but when your top book is an Avengers #16 CGC 9.6 that gets $6,600 you know it was a weak auction.
This auction is slowly being taken over by modern CGC 9.9 books. Of the top 50 books 10 were CGC 9.9 copies of common modern stuff. X-Men #142 CGC 9.9 led the charge posting a $2434 good enough for 10th spot. I say advantage seller to all of them!
DC scored 11 of the top 50 books; its best showing was a CGC 9.8 copy of the rare 1988 Superman Bradman that sold for $2,222 good enough for 12th place.
So lets have a look as some of the results!
Amazing Spider-Man #129, Marvel Comics, (February 1974) Graded by CGC at 9.4 with White pages sold for $1,288.00. The Overstreet price guide value for this comic at 9.4 is $950.00.
This book has legs! ASM #129s at CGC 9.4 have been hovering around the $1,000 mark for a while, I’ve seen a few sell over and a few sell under lately. I think the prices will still fluctuate on this book but lets hope this is a sign of an upward trend.
Batman #222, DC Comics, (June 1970) Graded by CGC at 9.4 with White pages sold for $1,032.00. The Overstreet price guide value for this comic at 9.2 is $110.00.
This result surprised me. I know that last CGC 9.4 of this book went for $825 (which I thought seemed high) now we see this one crack $1,000.
Are the Beatles planning a reunion?
I think this is too high, it’s a classic case of the CGC census on this book showing relatively few copies but I know there are a lot of nice ones still out there.
Fantastic Four #45, Marvel Comics, (December 1965) Graded by CGC at 9.2 with White pages sold $825.00. The Overstreet price guide value for this comic at 9.2 is $575.00.
This is the book I wanted. I love the grade and the page quality and I think it has killer eye appeal. Honestly I was surprised to see this go to $875. I checked GPA and the last 2 went for below $600 so I thought I had a chance to pick it up for just below Guide. No dice!
A tough call with advantage, it went 33% higher than recent copies bit its white pages and its tight square appearance make this a book people will want to have.
Incredible Hulk #181, Marvel Comics, (November 1974) Graded by CGC at 9.6 with White pages sold for $3,456.00. The Overstreet price guide value for this comic at 9.2 is $1,725.00.
Man a CGC 9.6 with white pages selling for $3,456? The only thing I could think of was the very obvious date stamp on the cover. I was in this auction up to my last bid of $3,330. The sniper almost sniped.
Iron Man #55, Marvel Comics, (February, 1973) Graded by CGC at 9.6 with White pages sold for $1,500.00. The Overstreet price guide value for this comic at 9.2 is $340.00.
Well looky looky, I thought this book was slowly on its way down to below $1000 but it’s showing some surprising (to me at least) resilience.
I still think its to high a price.
Justice League of America, DC Comics, (May 1965) Graded by CGC at 9.2 with White pages sold for $140.00. The Overstreet price guide value for this comic at 9.2 is $210.00.
I won this auction. Just look at this cover!! I picked it up for 2/3 Guide value and I thought it was a steal. High grade Justice Leagues below 50 are always tough.
Maybe I’ll keep it until before the movie comes out!
Well there you go! Did you pick up anything?
