Meaning that One 9.8 has market value equal to Three 9.6 and Five 9.4. When a modern book with plenty of supply gains traction because it has introduced a new character that is gaining in importance, I'm not so sure that $80 for a 9.4 is out of whack. The $135 for a 9.6 also seems not too unreasonable to me. It's the $400 for the 9.8 that catches attention and makes...
