I’m a huge fan of these editions. This one for sure. As it has Kevin Eastman. Courtney Eastman on the cover.This cover is the second appearance of Courtney Eastman as Artemis. Epic battle the creature meets his creation.

That Mirage site is pretty cool. Waiting to see what I get from Kevin Eastmans “Cowabundle” from volume 1 before I shop at Mirage. I too joined the K.E. Fan club for the first time!

New comics added today. I missed out on one of them (the unsigned Roiland sketch was sold out already) and decided to go a bit crazy and get a triple signed for $260.

A couple different remarque's. They weren't requested, Eastman just did them.

I can't compete with you guys but these are my biggest ballers in my TMNT collection.

These went on sale on the fan site and sold out in 3 minutes.


I bought 3 of these to get the highest one I could. They weren't expensive at the time but kind of hard to find especially in 7.0 + condition.


Nothing to say about this one.


This book is probably my favorite book I own and will go with me wherever I go when I croak. It has more sentimental value to me than just about any possession I have.


I almost walked away from this book over 50 bucks 3 years ago. Go ahead and find one.

All rivet label books of mine are unpressed and uncleaned. I have a long list of comics I want to open and work on myself then send in to cgc. (All the blue labels.) I will likely send the red and yellow rivets back to cbcs for reholders.

@HeinzDad

People will always have better / bigger collections. Be happy with what you have. There is always someone you will have more than... in regards to turtles, that turtlemania book is the only book I own still. So your collection far exceeds mine....

For the record I was clowning Mike. After all, I wouldn't ever want you to stop giving me advice if I hit you up! I do want to send in that 95 for a yellow label as you mentioned

Took me 20 years to obtain the massive collection of toys, comics, movie posters, and vinyl records. And it's a royal b!tch to move locations. It's a terrible responsibility keeping up with all of it. Sometimes I wish I didn't have such a huge collection. We are going to require a very large house when we move (if we move with this pandemic) next year.

@HeinzDad My LCS has that TMNT #4 for about $250. Are you saying I should email them and tell them to put it in my file?

No it's a zoomed in shot of one of my 2008 NECA TMNT Michaelangelo clamshell blister packaging sealed. I paid $100 for him about 5 years ago and he's worth $200 today.










A full set of these figures including April and Mousers are about $1000 today.

Another item I'd recommend tracking down is a complete Fan Club Kit. The rare ones are the orange bandanna. I have a red, orange, and blue kit, all opened. One time about 3 years ago a SEALED one sold for $650 at auction as I recall

I mean, I've never seen another than mine, but its also high grade. I think there are only 3 on the bay but to be honest dollar value isn't my specialty. Go take a look at it. If it doesn't say look like a 8.0 or above, haggle.

Disclaimer: I'm horrible at value, TMNT thru the is thru the roof right now but I stumbled into the 4 second print. When I say I almost walked over 50 dollars I meant it was 50 or I didn't buy it. That was just 3 years ago. Maybe that aids market decision buyer right now.

Crazy, prices nearly tripled from the pre orders.

Apparently, if you picked one of these out of a dollar bin in the last 30 years, you made out like a bandit
My copy has been with CBCS since June. Really lookin forward to seeing it again. Not sure what made me send it in, it really wasn’t worth much 6 months ago

Thanks for the heads up!!! I bought one in a mixed ebay lot a few years ago. I doubt I even paid a dollar for it. It was bagged and boarded and in nm condition. I kept it because Bebop and Rocksteady are two characters I really liked on the animated cartoons. I have no idea where it is right now, but it's nice to know it went up in value!!

These two issues from the Archie series are really low print run, and really difficult to obtain in any grade. High grade copies fetch past $200-$300 each

This book is actually misprinted and a recall edition. It's printed BACKWARDS and was graded as such, too!

This book is uncleaned and unpressed, as well.

Here is another recalled edition...there's no yellow ink on cover!

Apparently these are rare, I looked at Ebay and #30 is extremely high priced. How much do you think they'll sell for and does anyone have more info on these?

If anyone has a TMNT adventures #24 with signatures let me know. I have a few raw but really want a yellow label one. That is my favorite cover.
