Armorines #0 Gold - worth pressing?3414

Collector ZosoRocks private msg quote post Address this user




Front cover - NB color crease top left and maybe onecor two small NB color spine ticks.

Back cover - noticeable NB color creases - bottom right

Overall probably about a 7.0....guessing.

What would others think? Is it worthy of a press to bring it to 9.0+?

Thanks!

if its a 9.0 or less I wouldn't. Keep as-is or upgrade. Upgrading will be same cost or even cheaper. Looks like there are two signatures on it though which you didn't mentioned. I'm not sure it they add any value.

http://www.valiantpriceguide.com/issue/cgcsales/arm0g/

9.6s already cased can be had for under $50 so just upgrade to a nicer copy.

Only 9.8 of Armorines gold are worth casing "$100-$150".

A 9.0 or less are worth cover price at best "without sigs" so keep as is or upgrade to a nicer copy for same cost as pressing/grading.

Those signatures may/may not add any value to it. I have no idea about signature values.

Thanks Kan....I see what you are saying, and follow the guide regularly.

Wish they didn't change formatting, and they needed to update since the March date....hehehe.

I collect Valiant and wondered what the community thoughts were.

Best to you!

This is the sort of book I would rebag into a Mylite2 abd a Full Back, and file into my $10 convention stock boxes.

Or I'd put it up on eBay at $14.99 + $5 shipping. Easier to just make it into a $10 book, and people like pulling out signed gold variants out of my boxes at shows.

I'n guessing you paid just under $20, shipped. Not a bad deal but pressing, grading and signature verification fees would make reselling the book a wash out, at best.

I don't recognize either of the sigs, neither are big names.

If the book had a Jim Shooter sig, than I'd say that a 9.0 verified red label might bring you $75 via Buy It Now. Even than, it would probably take months to sell.

A lot of the gold Valiant books from the over printed early Valiant era had pretty sizable print runs.

Armorines 0 wasn't printed as highly as a book like Turok 1.

Turok 1 gold sells for about $75 in 9.8(shipping not accounted for ), a gold Armorines 0 is probably good for $25 more.

These sorts of books have to be unquestionable 9.8's, to have graded, IMO.

Even than, I'd rather just sell a dead on 9.8 raw Turok 1 gold for $30 or so, out of my priced as marked boxes at a con, than spend $30 to make another $10.

A good rule of thumb IMHO is that is a book isn't worth $100 in a 9.8 slab, it really isn't worth slabbing.
