I was planning to get my hulk 181 at sdcc, but if you can make me a deal, I might bite. Send me a PM, bro.

Very nice, I’m looking for a slightly higher grade on the ASM 14. Thanks for posting, though.

@00slim I traded an ASM 14 7.5 in my trade deal - you can see it and many others at socalcomics.com.

Oh, I can’t afford a 7.5. Appreciate the heads up though, @Stu.

@00slim I also traded a Hulk 181 7.0 signed by Len.

@Stu I can certainly take a photo of the back if you're interested.

And this is why one should not use comicspriceguide.com for pricing. $1400 is about double the market price for this one.

@GAC I’d highly recommend a GoCollect or GPA account. It’s worth the $6/month membership for accurate sales info.

Oh, ok...how do comicspriceguide.com come up with their values? Are they in line with Overstreet? What's the best way to determine FMV?

@GAC I’m interested. We just need to agree on a price.

Something similar to this, I imagine.

The best way is to research the prices people are currently paying. The more sales a comic has, the better. Don't rely on prices that people are asking, only what they're actually getting.

As mentioned, GoCollect or GPA will give you that info (for a low and fair price, especially if you purchase frequently).

CBCS endorses them on a regular basis on social media. They seem like good folks over there, but their pricing is all over the place 😑. Like, REALLY bad.

Anyone know what the connection is?

There you go.

Doesn't get much better than that.

With that extensive damage to the back cover, and other issues, is that Spidey 14 a 2.0? 1.8?

I would imagine the connection is money. Cold, hard cash. Well...since we don't trade much in metal anymore, "cold", "hard" metaphorical cash.

It will never cease to amaze me that every single person or group of people who attempt(s) to publish price "guides" always 1. overstate(s) the value of virtually everything they price, and 2. overstate it by a lot. If something is priced in line with market values, it's almost universally a mistake that hasn't been updated yet. Overvaluing collectibles is as predictable as the sun rising in the east.

And the reason why isn't a mystery: no one will use a price guide that tells people what they have is worth what other people are currently paying, or, GASP!, LESS than what THEY paid. They want to be lied to, to discover that what they have is "worth" much, much more than they paid for it. Silly human nature.

It DOES lead to some interesting hypotheticals, though...for example, in the area of "price resistance."
