So I've come across a couple of 1st appearances at a LCS I frequently visit. Sabretooth (Iron Fist #14) & Swamp Thing (House Of Secrets #92). They're in great condition (9.0 - 9.4 on both) & figured since it's my b-day today I'd treat myself to one or both issues. What do u guys think?

@nikki666666
Yeah, they're asking $95 for the IF & $150 for the HOS. The owner's a pretty cool guy who'll work with me on the price too!

Yeah. A Near Mint House of Secrets 92 is worth over $1000 easy.

Either way, Swamp Thing would be my choice.

Here's two completed auctions for comparison. The top one claimed VG, the bottom claimed VF+.

Just inspect it closely.

Most likely, it's lower grade, or, a high grade reprint. But, there's always the hope that the seller hasn't checked the market recently.

I hope the latter. That would be quite the score.

My answer is yes (meaning both).

If I had to choose I love me some Sabretooth.

Yes if they're the real deal in that grade range with no restoration for that price buy both. After that once you buy those ask if he has anything else like that. You say it's a shop so it's not like your taking advantage of a little old lady that doesn't know any better.

Just be super sure the books are what you think they are.

At that price there is a hidden problem with that HoS.

Run, don't walk to that store immediately and wait for it to open. And hope no other customers have been there since you were. Look closely at those books (no hidden defects, missing pages, adds out, etc.) and buy them. And like @JWKyle said, ask to see what other good stuff they have. And bring your credit cards!

Why are you still reading this...Go!

If that book is complete and un-restored you'll be committing highway robbery.

And you say its in the 9.0+ range? I think you missed a zero key. $1,500 sounds more like it.

$95 for IF 14 in 9.0-9.4 is practically giving it away. That's a super deal.

We need answers!!! Deal of a liftetime or missig zeroes? The thought of HOS 92 in ANY grade for $150 gets me all hot and bothered.

UPDATE..
Well, I headed over to pick up the books & sure enough - the HOS got scooped up over the weekend!!! Shite!!! Plus the owner said the price was "accidentally" mislabeled by one of the clerks. He sold it for $650, so I'm not too broken up about it. I wouldn't have been able to swing that right now anyway (bills & such, you know?). The IF though? Added to my collection!! He gave me a break on the price & brought it down to $70. $70 you guys! This is definitely working out to be a great birthday indeed.

Pics or it didn't happen.

$70?! That's insanity.

$650 for the HOS 92 is still ridiculously cheap if the grade was remotely accurate.

Still a great deal on IF 14 for 70. Where is this shop again?
