Never realized how good some of the Transformer covers are.

@Hcanes I'm trying to get all my favs from the 80 issue run in 9.6 slabs, including 1-24 and the last 5 or so issues of the run. but will take 9.4 if the price is right.

i probably Have about 10 more to go and have 8 of them raw that should get 9.4. But hard to pass up newsies when they show up and can get them basically for the price I'd pay for a the raw comic, a press, slab and shipping!

The last three issues were the hardest to find in NM condition, probably even more difficult when looking for newsstand copies considering the low print run towards the end of the series.
@Hcanes The art really came along as the series progressed. Andrew Wildman added to the art when he was brought on. A young Jim Lee even contributed a few covers to the original series.

@Drogio and @Studley_Dudley what you two have shown makes it tempting to join the hunt. I will have to live vicariously through you both...starting to run out of space.

Need to stay focused on my ASM and Hulk Todd McFarlane run.

Ironically issue 80 comes up about as often as most others in 9.4 and above grade Even newsstand versions. Issues 78 and 79 not so much.

Just checked eBay current availability:
5 copies of 80 graded 9.4-9.8. All direct.
- also 3 sales in the past couple months.
2 copies of 79 graded 9.4 & 9.6. One ea. Direct/newsstand. No recent sales.
0 copies of 78 graded above 9.0. One recent sale (mine)

Yes. Please stay focused on other things! Got enough competition trying to build my slab collection without breaking the bank.

I sold a CGC 9.2 copy of #78 last month. I want to say a 9.8 sold in Feb for over $300.
