My son's foray into the 1930's. I'm sort of surprised the Smash #10 wasn't marketed as an Iron Man prototype.

Not a new acquisition, but a kewl one: Second appearance of Daredevil and first in alternating red/blue costume! Over half the book was illustrated by Jack Cole as well...

Took me a long time to find this book in high grade, but it's mine now.

Some early Torchy appearances. The Doll Man Quarterly #8, her first comic book appearance, and the entire Torchy series are now in Steve's grading queue.

Here's my Blackhawk. 1949, so I think that counts.

Having some interest in Timely Comics, and a small collection thereof, I was wondering what you folks think about the recent price craziness of Marvel Mystery #4.

A 1.8 at Heritage sold for $18000, a 3.5 at Comiclink sold for $26000, and the 7.5 at Comiclink is now at $32000 with nearly two weeks left. Is this realistic? Is it sustainable?

I about fell out of my seat when I saw that $18K for a 1.8 and it makes me wonder what other books are soon to be WAY out of reach. Just curious, thanks for any reply.

@figment With only 30 blue labels to go around books like this will command higher and higher prices when collectors realize the finite amount.

Kind of why I slowed on silver age collecting...everyone has a copy!

@MrNotSoNice here is my #9(#1) sorry for poor pic. But it's a pretty nice copy.

I used to have quite a few GA books - probably 100+ but they were all stolen about 6 years ago now. I had a Superman #20 and a Marvel Mystery #11 that I was exceptionally proud of. Also had a bunch of the Captain Marvel Adventures and some Sub-Mariner books among others.

I have a few ungraded GA books now, but have started to hone in on GA pedigree books as I can. Most I have so far are westerns - mostly because they seem to be cheaper than the Superhero stuff I would prefer to get. I really like seeing those pedigree labels sitting in my office.

Crazy! Just went up to $113K. Last time the Top 3 (not including restored) sold was in 2012 and then 2002. A couple people want it really bad and have the money. It could be another decade before the next one is up for sale.

Schomburg Timely's hammering for nose-bleed prices doesn't surprise me. MM#4 has been a low supply, high demand book for quite some time.

Speaking of hammering, Alex's cover for Mystic Comics #1 (3/40) is a very clever reverse swipe of an early Spider pulp cover (6/39)...







Banks will undoubtably raise their safety deposit fees accordingly.

Picked up a second copy of the 1948 Dead-eye Western #1. This book is hard to find in general, but really hard to find in high grade. Here is the one i had graded a few years ago and my new raw copy. Ill clean it and press it next weekend and send it in.
