Cannot Seem To Cut A Deal On Squirrel Girl3588

Collector 00slim private msg quote post Address this user
I'm looking to snag a Marvel Superheroes #8, preferably a newsstand in solid Near Mint or Near Mint+.

Raw would be fine if I could get a deal.

The thing is, a 9.6 slabbed Direct Edition sells for $165 according to completed e-bay auctions, & people are asking $100 or close to it, for VG/Fine raw copies.

Does anybody here have one for sale? Or, can you point me in the right direction?

Any help would be appreciated.

You missed the mark on that book. Should have picked one up way before she was announced for the show.

True. I'm just saying that the asking price for low grade copies does not match even the current market.

It's a great book. I foresee the value to jump once the tv show comes out.

Nope, they all seem to be expensive.

@00slim Buy raw for cheaper, press it, get 9.8. That's what I did. Got the raw for about $50 in 2016.

Some people don't know what that have. I've seen the comic as part of lots on ebay. Instead of searching exactly that book, maybe look for lots of Marvel Super Heroes Series.

That's what I'm aiming for.

@00slim But ya direct edition is easier to get 9.8. Gonna be tough to find a cheap newsstand one.

Won this auction at $73.39 after shipping. With a press, I think it'll be a 9.4 minimum. Thoughts?

The glare from the flash doesn't help, I know. But it isn't in hand just yet.

Can't argue the 9.4 especially after a press!

That's a HELL of a deal on that comic! Congrats! I'm jelly cause I'm a fiend for those Newsstand editions.

The best part? I offered the seller $75 (before shipping) and he shot me down.

Looks like you'll be coming out pretty good on that one. Although you'll know more when you get it in hand

What's that dark spot on the upper edge on the back cover?

No clue. Good eye, though. Ink smear?

I don't know. It might be. There was a small spot on the front cover of an NYX 4 I had graded this year. It also had some creases. It graded out as an 8.0. I was surprised, but any kind of stain or anything perceived as a stain will knock the grade down pretty hard.

Not trying to rain on your parade, by the way. Congratulations on the book. Fingers crossed you get that 9.4 after a press.

This is from 1991? Looks like one of those comics that has stacks hidden in random overstock boxes, from the excesses of that era. Maybe they will start to come out more often and you can get a copy cheap? I doubt I would recognize this one out in the wild. Certainly not before I saw this thread.
